La Naval Fiesta (12 October 2014)
I was invited to the home of Homer Yabut for the celebration of the fiesta of Angeles City, Pampanga. Homer's mom prepared sumptuous Capampangan dishes, such as seafood kare-kare, spicy sisig and my all-time fave, bringhe. There was also wild fern salad, with lots of shrimp. For dessert, there were several kakanin, including sampelot (halo-halong ginataan) and mochi.
Dessa Grace Añover Mercado and I arrived together and, since we had an hour before lunch time, Homer took us back to the Apung Mamacalulu shrine and Dayrit Mansion for a short photoshoot. Since I thought the churches would be full to overflowing because it was fiesta, I didn't bother to bring my camera. All I had was my Samsung Galaxy Note. The photos took a little tweaking in LR5, but they came out okay.
This time, I was able to really look at the Dayrit Mansion and its details. It is such a beautiful structure. The backyard is particularly charming.
Thanks to Homer for introducing us to the Shrine and making us part of a delicious and continuing Pampanga adventure! #lanavalfiesta2014 #angelespampanga #apungmamacalulushrine #dayritmansionpampanga #mobilephotography
