Sandugo Festival 2008

The Sandugo Festival is also known as the Blood Compact Commemoration and is often tagged as the mother of all festivals. It is a month long celebration every July in the city of Bohol, to commemorate the Sandugo or the signing of a treaty of friendship between Datu Si Katuna and Miguel Lopez de Legazpi.

The festival used to be held in March until it was changed to July a few years ago to coincide with the annual Tigum Bol-anon Tibuok Kalibutan, a gathering of Boholanos from all around the world.

"A gloomy afternoon to you Ms. Mindy! I really feel bad whenever there's a typhoon and we still have our classes when all year levels from elementary to secondary are having a warm comfy time inside their houses. Can you please enlighten me about the guidelines regarding class suspensions. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks! "

Hey, Ron! As of June 21, 2011 the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education together with the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration released guidelines regarding the suspension of classes during inclement weather. They provide the suspension of classes in preschool in areas under signal number 1; in preschool, elementary, and high school under signal number 2; and in all levels under signal numbers 3 and 4. Remember this rule, and don't forget to monitor the news in times of bad weather. As G.I. Joe famously said, “Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.” XD

Santiago Alvarez (b. July 25, 1872 - d. October 30, 1930) was a revolutionary general and a founder and honorary president of the first directorate of the Nacionalista Party. Also known as Kidlat ng Apoy because of his inflamed bravery and dedication as commander of Cavite's famous battles (particularly that in Dalahican]], he was rejoiced in the present-day Cavite City as the “Hero” of the Battle of Dalahican.

A native of Imus, Cavite, Santiago was the only child of the revolutionary leader Mariano Alvarez (1831-1924) and Nicolasa Virata y del Rosario. After his birth, his family immediately moved to Noveleta, Cavite where he acquired his early education at age seven under Sr. Antonio Dacon. He was later transferred to another private school located in the present Cavite City where he was taught by Don Ignacio Vilocillo. Since his parents wanted him to become a teacher, he was sent to Manila and enrolled at a school situated along Camba Street in Tondo, Manila and was headed by Don Macario Hernandez. However, his academic endeavors were interrupted by the revolution in 1896. After the revolution, he enrolled at the University of Santo Tomas but later transferred to the Colegio de San Juan de Letran where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts.
