The group assembled at the tourism hall at around 7:00 a.m., and had our stomach warmer at the Municipal Hall. We had a chance to witness the town’s colorful history, Saludan Festival came from a local dialect “Salud” a crude method of threshing rice, catching fish through nets and wooden bamboo. The festival was highlighted by a Tribe Competition where in it showcased the municipality’s rich cultural history, and natural resources.

After the Tribe Competition, the group headed to Tarso Boys (a street in Tigbauan, what a unique name :-)) for our lunch. We are very thankful for our kind sponsors, Junelyn Tan- Ayson, Maria Buena Tan Arguelles, and Bellgrace Tan-Raisi. It was a full pack lunch, thanks for the foods.. Thank you also the hosts, who accommodate us for the venue of our lunch, Phoebe Molina Torrico and family. They really make us feel at home.
