Pahiyas Festival is just one of the many events you can visit here in the Philippines. It is celebrated annually every 15th of May. As a kid, we used to go here and after some time we stopped due to busy schedules. But this year, I was so happy I was able to finally come back. The only problem as usual is lack of sleep since I work at night. After Monday shift, we immediately traveled going to Lucban Quezon which was hours away from Binangonan Rizal (our place).
