CITY OF MALOLOS- Senator Cynthia Villar compared the Bulakenyos’ Singkaban Festival to the sustainability of a bamboo, which is the main component of a ‘singkaban’ during the opening of the Mother of All Fiestas in the province held in front of the Capitol building in this city earlier this rainy morning.

“Dito sa inyong Singkaban Festival, natutuwa ako na ang kawayan ang bida sa festival na ito. Ang kawayan, pwedeng putulin at pakinabangan at pagkatapos ay magre-regrow kaya ito ay sustainable. Sa kabilang banda, sa pamamagitan ng Singkaban Festival, nae-expose ang mga kabataan sa kahalagahan ng kawayan na sila naman ang magtutuloy nito sa susunod na henerasyon,” the two-termer lady senator said.

Villar, who is an adopted daughter of Bulacan through Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution No. 145-T’19, also thanked the Bulakenyos for braving the rain in order to celebrate the province’s weeklong festival.

For his part, Governor Daniel R. Fernando recognized the efforts of the Bulakenyos to overcome their differences and individuality in order to have a common and collective goal, which is to contribute to Bulacan’s development.

“Bawat tao ay isa sa mga pinakakumplikadong nilalang. Tayo ay isinilang ng may iba’t ibang ugali, we call that our individual differences, for us to survive, we need more than our individuality, we need a sense of community, and that is the value of our cultural heritage,” the governor said.

Also, he encouraged the Bulakenyo youth to never lose hold of the legacy that the great Bulakenyos left for them to relish.

“Taas noo nating ipakilala ang ating dakilang lalawigan na maging mahalagang bahagi ng ating pambansang kasaysayan. Sikapin po natin na lalong mapaalab ang pagmamahal sa bayan, sa ating pamayanan at tradisyong kinagisnan,” Fernando added.

After the opening program, weeklong activities including D’Fair: A Singkaban Expo and Exhibit and Bahay Kubo, Bahay Gulay, and Bulacan Food Fair Expo (BUFFEX) were opened and Parada ng Karosa was held.

The opening of the Singkaban Festival anchored on the theme “Sining at Kalinangang Bulakenyo, Dangal ng Filipino,” signals the start of the weeklong celebration with numerous activities lined-up to celebrate Bulacan’s history, arts, culture and tourism.
