Today, I and my friends got to visit Gumasa, Glan and celebrate the Sarangani Bay Festival ’12. The festival already started yesterday, but time is a luxury and so we settled to hit the resorts today. We left the city kind of late (but already ahead of our schedule) and arrived at Gumasa by half past nine.
By the way, these are my friends back in high school and through all this time, we remained to be really good friends. We were actually seven in the group, but two are already out of the country while the other one is not available due to prior commitment. So only the four of us got to enjoy the day.
White Haven Resort was the venue of most of the activities of SarBay Festival and what awaited visitors and tourists are the large signboards and flags of sponsors along the entrance and the countless food booths and memorabilia stalls dotting the shores of Gumasa.
It was really hot (since it was near noon) so we took our time taking pictures, despite the temperature, humidity, noise and crowd.
Bankarera (boat race) has just finished and there was not much activity on the shore. Still, it was fun watching the people and the beautiful beach….
Plus some weird but cool images of anything we just took….
And of course, the people…
By around two, we went back to General Santos City, watched Dark Shadow, and ate a hearty dinner at Big Ben.
