May 15 marks the celebration of one of the most colorful festivals in the Philippines ~ The Pahiyas Festival of Lucban Quezon. Finally, after all that failed attempts to attend this festival, I was able to make it this year and I am so grateful that I went here with my mom as my Mother's day treat for her.
