    bakit 30+ lang,sabi ng iba dyan..50+ ang sasali..dagdagan ang prizes..total prizes naman ang hambol..at saka flop ito..kasi beijing olympics na mamaya..pang cebu lang ito..

    with a MILLION PESO GRAND PRIZE, there is nothing to expect but the BEST PRESENTATIONS. BEIJING OLYMPICS & PASIGARBO FESTIVAL, are 2 different events and it is INCOMPARABLE. With 34 participating contingents and guest performers like. KADAUGAN SA MACTAN FESTIVAL and many others… PASIGARBO might be a NEWBIE but it OUTBESTED some other “ESTABLISHED FESTIVALS” in terms of PARTICIPANTS & PRIZES. e.g. some FESTIVALS has been there for a long time but the GROWTH of their FESTIVAL is so SLOW. UNLIKE PASIGARBO FESTIVAL, it will be upstage the SECOND TIME AROUND and the PARTICIPANTS and PRIZES are just so OVERWHELMING, for a NEWBIE FESTIVAL like PASIGARBO SA SUGBO. So see you guys there!

    P.S. To people, WHO STILL has the pre-hispanic attitude of CRAB MENTALITY: WATCH & LEARN!

    but in terms of choreography,pasigarbo will outbested,its all about money after all.

  7. porgeu_sie says:

    organizer of these event never think the conflict,the flare of the issue is that people around the world is craving for beijing olympics,including us,filipino,they could change the date sana..=(

    Man! I was blessed enough or very fortunate enough to see the first Pasigarbo sa Sugbo in 2008 and it was the BEST! We were fortunate enough to visit my BELOVED CEBU from my BELOVED AUSTRALIA, and was fortunate enough to be there when the 1st Pasigarbo sa Sugbo was on. I WAS AMAZED!!! The colour of the costumes was magnificient; the routine dance and drama of the contestant was just AMAZING!!! I was born in Cebu, but WE were blessed enough to live in Australia. I have never seen such wonderful festival in my life!!! Pasigarbo sa Sugbo was SO GOOD, that i tooked about 5000 pictures. IT WAS AMAZING. And also was very fortunate enough to see the BEAUTIFUL FIRST LADY OF CEBU, GOVERNOR GWYN GARCIA. She is so WISE! Thank you Governor!!! In my openion not only that you are BEAUTIFUL but also very wise. I love the Pasigarbo sa Sugbo so much, that i was very lucky enough to return from my beloved country Australia and return to my beloved Cebu and see Sinulog 2009. Sinulog was THE BEST ALSO!!! The colours and beauty of Sinulog 2009 was “BREATH TAKING”. BUT! BUT! BUT! The most beautiful of all, is the FILIFINO PEOPLE!!! They are so united as ONE!!! “2 step forward, 1 step back”. VIVA PIT SENOR!!! So for us 12 million Filifino’s who are “BLESSED” enough to be living abroad, let US ALL UNITE AS ONE! By, breaking the “CYCLE OF POVERTY” in OUR BELOVED COUNTRY THE PHILIPPINES. Let’s all try and sponsor a child(s) and give that child an education. And see that child gets a university degree! Let’s all start from our Barrangay or province first, then we can extend our support to the next Barrangay. “GIVE A MAN A FISH, AND HE WILL EAT FOR THE NIGHT. SHOW THE MAN HOW TO FISH AND HE WILL EAT ALL HIS LIFE. And maybe he/she will give fish to his neighbour also. “WE CANNOT DO EVERYTHING, BUT WE CAN DO SOMETHING”! “WE CANNOT HELP ALL THE POOR! BUT WE CAN HELP SOME”. So lets start helping ONE first, then maybe TWO, then maybe THREE…GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES AND GOD BLESS THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD! WE ARE THE WORLD AND WE ARE THE CHILDREN!!! YOU AND ME ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!!PEACE AND I LOVE YOU ALL!!! LORD JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU!!! AMEN!!
