While writing this post we are experiencing typhoon; typhoon Tisoy to be exact with an international name Kammuri. As of 5 p.m. today Southern portion of Quezon (Perez, Alabat, Quezon, Atimonan, Padre Burgos, Agdangan, Plaridel, Unisan, Pitogo, Gumaca, Pitogo, Lopez, Macalelon, General Luna, Calauag, Guinayangan, Tagkawayan, Buenavista, Mulanay, San Narciso, San Francisco, San Andres) are under signal no. 3 and the rest of Quezon Province including Polillo Islands are under signal no. 2. Right now, here in my place, we are not experiencing heavy rains but a strong wind is making me worried.
I remember the typhoon Rosing way back 1995. This typhoon was one of the strongest typhoons in our country. Back then, the house that we are living today is not fully finished. My father told us to stay here while there is typhoon. We didn’t think that because of typhoon Rosing we will transfer in this house and never come back from our old house even this house still not finished. Well, this house is safer than our long-standing house because this one is made of stone and the old one wasn’t. After the typhoon we went back to our house and it was totally washout. Good thing we brought our things in the new house before Rosing hit our place. It was really strong typhoon.
Well, I hope and pray that this typhoon Tisoy we are facing right now will not cause immense problem to everyone affected by the storm. I believe in the power of prayers and I know God will protect us. Still we need to think for our safety because PAGASA warned of a possible storm surge over 3 meters high in several coastal areas in Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur. Also, a storm surge up to 3 meters tall may also occur over several coastal areas in Batangas, Quezon, Albay, and Marinduque. So, be vigilant and observant on what is happening in your place. Keep safe everyone, God is with us. I strongly believe on that just trust Him.
Yearly Niyogyugan Festival is happening in Quezon Province. The festival aims to showcase Quezon products such as products made from coconut tree and other products from different municipalities and cities of Quezon Province. Each town has one product to offer. Promotion of agri-tourism is also one of the priorities of the said festival.
In 2011, Quezon Province held the first AGRI-TOURISM Trade Fair that featured booths with agricultural products from different municipalities in Quezon. In the year 2012, the very first provincial festival was held, it is the celebration of the tree of life (which is coconut) and called Niyogyugan Festival. Since then, the festival becomes a yearly celebration happening month of August.
Niyogyugan was derived from the words niyog (coconut) and yugyug (to move to a beat). So expect jolly, lively and colorful festival with the coconut as the main theme of the celebration. It would be two long weeks celebration starting on August 09-20, 2018.
Here are some of the activities for this year Niyogyugan Festival 2018
Looking forward to these two activities …

For two days already classes were suspended here in our place. Though were not really affected by typhoon Juaning still Quezon province was under Signal No. 2. So DepEd suspended classes from preschooler to high school department. But we only experienced some rainy showers but beyond that nothing awful things are happening right now. But I heard in the news that many casualties were already reported in the nearby places that were truly affected by this typhoon. So sorry for those who have been affected I hope our government can do/ready and learned from the past experiences like in Typhoon Ondoy.
Anyway, this typhoon still in our country but another typhoon was predicted by PAGASA. I hope this will not turn into a typhoon I don’t think our kababayan (fellow countrymen) are ready for another one.
