Mga Aral 2010
It's Holy Week once again, if your parish has not started to hold processions yet or if you are still undecided what to do this year for the upcoming processions...hopefully this helps.
El Nino or not, the show must go on!
One unfortunate thing about this flower though...it wilts fast...mere hours, so if you are the type who makes arrangements that should last until Easter stick with mums, azucenas, orchids and anthuriums--never fails.
Yellow and White are the predominant color. I am not really sure if this is the trend or preference of most carroza owners, I am assuming that these are the colors dominating the market eg mums, fiji's etc (meaning mostly available)...not sure as well if this is due to Tita Cory (A magazine ad says yellow is the new color of bravery)--if that's the case may each single yellow flower remind us to love our democracy and to vote wisely in the coming national election.
But am not here to promote any candidate running for national or local office, that is why my next suggestion is...
Correction...see examples below. Thanks

Dry as El Nino.
It may sure look fun to decorate our carroza's and we can always assert our artistic freedom, ultimately all we want is for our carroza's to look good worthy of the images it is bearing...that may be...we should always remember what the occassion is and be guided accordingly.
