Mommy Growing up: Carinosa Moments

Carinosa Moments

Living in a foreign land, it is so rare that we get to wear our country's national costume (if lucky, once a year). The fact that we got invited to dance and represent our country also happen once in a blue moon. On such rare occasion, my husband and I, together with two other friends danced Carinosa, a famous cultural dance back home. We cast our dancing prowess (no, we're not professionals lol) first in a hotel filled with VIPs and university presidents from partner universities in and outside the country, and second, in front of everybody in the university in time for the International Students Day.

Hubby in Barong Tagalog and me in an orange Baro at Saya!
With two friends/neighbors/kababayans in Evergreen Hotel, Taichung, Taiwan.
The guys are handsome in their neat Barong Tagalog.
Of course, the ladies are equally dashing in our colorful  (Baro at Saya) get-ups lol.
Fun in white Barong.
Performed again the next day, in my beautiful orange Maria Clara dress.
Braving the overwhelming stage.

Such presentations once again reminded everybody how beautiful and colorful our culture is. I am proud of my country. My heartfelt gratitude to Manila Economic and Cultural Office (de facto Philippine embassy in Taiwan) Taichung for providing the dresses. Those adrenaline-filled days were indeed memorable.
