Are you already
in the saddle for this coming Sinulog 2015? Here’s some tips that will help you not just to survive Sinulog but to also enjoy enjoy and enjoy!
Light colored t-shirts, comfy shoes, towels or handkerchief and cool shades that can protect you from the hot rays of the sun. You may also wear boots in case it rains (God forbid). Bring your mighty umbrella! Best shield through rain or shine.
Don’t wear 3 layers of make-up if you don’t want your face to get wrinkles or burns. You might not know that the ingredients of the cosmetics you’ve used is highly flammable and not suitable to be exposed to the heat of the sun.
Always bring “Dora’s Backpack” with all those first aid kits, toilet necessities because you might not know when the nature will be calling you maybe from time to time #SadTruth and of course you have to answer. You can also “Bring your House” in case you forget something.
There will be a lot of people from different parts of the world and also not part of our world – maybe aliens or not like ours – who will be partying with us during the Sinulog. And it certainly attracts pickpockets and robbers. To prevent such incidents you can always lock your bag or if not always place your bag at the front.
Don’t look like a jeweler. Always think twice in wearing too many accessories. You already know the consequences.
Bring water or more liquids that can quench your thirst as joining the festivity would be physically exhausting, from walking a long distance or attending the solemn mass or partying hard. You should always drink water.
“Patience is a virtue” and do a little of sacrifice. Walk calmly, enjoy the party wildly, but always bear in mind the true meaning of this celebration and that is to bring honor and praise to the child Jesus Senyor Sto. Niño.
Familiarize yourself with the routes of the Sinulog Grand Parade so that you can find good spots where you can enjoy the event and not get in a situation where you have to climb on railings!
Gear up your cell phones and gadgets. Don’t forget to charge it before leaving and it’s a must to bring with you power banks.
