aliwan 2009 Pulang Angui Festival 12/25

PULANG ANGUI FESTIVAL (Albay)
From Albay we see the Pulang-Angui festival.  The feast gets its name from a lady named Angui, who loved everything in red – – from her dress to her umbrella, her lips and her cheeks.  She looked like a goddess and was known for her kindness and generosity.   One day some huntsmen arrived at her place and upon seeing her, their leader became lovestruck. In time, they lived happily ever after.  Their float depicts the world-famous Mayon Volcano, along with the Oyangui tree which is native to Polangui.  Abaca twine, coconut husks, sinamay, raffia and nito vines are also used to embellish the decorations.  At center is Pulang Angui and the huner making the town’s delicacy —  kalamay.  Festival muse – Ashley Ann Himor.
