EDITORIAL: The Essence of DINAGSA

As the festive atmosphere of every City Fiesta in the Philippines, people get accustomed and excited with the arrival of either the local “Perya” (Fair), the quick sprouting of small stores, and the street peddlers who offer knick-knacks and other items that will serve as your souvenir of that said event.

Here in Cadiz, it is the same, but let us not forget that the whole point of “Dinagsa” is to honor, honoring Jesus, particularly baby Jesus, which we locally call the Señor Sto.Niño de Cadiz. We enjoy, we have fun, we drink; but let us not forget to do it honorably and not excessively.

The best of the People of Cadiz should be exemplified, to display discipline and being good hosts. A lot of tourist, visitors and guests visit us during the Dinagsa and accommodating them and providing them the best experience should be our concern. We also need to remind them that this is how we honor Jesus.

Dinagsa started as the Cadiz City Ati-atihan Festival, which showcases the pioneering Tribal Dance contest in the Philippines.

1st Boriring Festival in Cadiz City

Many People would think the Buriring is the same as Butete which are both from the same Family of Puffer Fish. However, long ago in Cadiz the Boriring has been known to be a staple food considering the abundance of Santol Trees in Cadiz at that time. Yes, if not cleaned well, boriring is dangerous and will continue to be, but the specialized cooking procedure in Cadiz made this fish a staple of safe and delicious delicacy.

This Month, the Cadiz City Tourism Office led by Mrs. Juanily Pedrosa organized the Boriring Festival together with the rest of the 2nd District namely Manapla and Sagay. It was also covered by the regional news agency like ABS-CBN and GMA where it was featured last night at Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. Some local foodies and bloggers also covered the said event for different types of cooking for this rare and exotic food.

It might look like small mices at first, but then once you have a taste of it, it will whet your appetite. The same way you thought of BALUT before, the looks won’t do justice to the taste. So come visit Cadiz and Try
