:NS Festival homepage for more details of the fun and events that were being organised.


I was there to watch a traditional dance performance from Philippines, who were performing on 13th October. There were other countries performing as well on other days, do visit the link on RASAS – Traditional Dances from Asia for more information of the other traditional dance performances by other Asian countries.


It was a great performance by the Philippines dancers and it was really enjoyable for dancers and spectators, with the crowds participating with the performers, learning Philippines traditional dances. It was really entertaining and it was a fun time shooting photographs of this wonderful dance event and watching their performance.


Happy viewing folks, a great day of photography for me !

    1001 noisy cameras~ You have a great photography blog too !

  4. Glad you liked the Philippine dances! I danced the Pandanggo sa Ilaw (dance with candle in a glass on top of the women’s head) and Wasiwas (yes, that’s how it’s spelled in my country, not Oasioas) in a school program before. Hope you visit my country so you can take breath-taking pictures of the beaches, countryside and various scenic spots 🙂

  5. Hi kyutbabe, thanks for dropping by my blog. I enjoyed the Philippine dances !

    Thanks for enlightening me on how one of the Philippine dance name is differently spelt. I based it on the event information.

    Would visit Philippines when I get the chance, definitely have many nice places of visit.
