The Grandest Philippine Fiesta – Aliwan

You should not miss the Biggest, the Most Colorful and Most Exciting Annual Festival event in the Philippines – Aliwan Fiesta.

Since 2003, it is always the Grandest Fiesta of Philippine Festivals and it’s official website: http://www.aliwanfiesta.com.ph says “it is a showcase how religion, culture, and tradition are woven into the fiber of our existence. Traditional fiestas, which are held annually to commemorate the foundation of a town or province, or honoring its patron saint, are brought together en masse to highlight the Pinoy’s indomitable and ebullient spirit, together with his mien for creativity and innovation. With most major fiestas rooted in the pre-colonial period, there is understandably a festival sector that celebrates Nature’s bounty. Our Filipino forebears worshipped pagan gods who, to them, were responsible for bountiful harvests on land and sea.”

This year, two Leyte contingents tightly competed for the grand champ title in the Street Dance category – the Buraburon Festival of Burauen failed to defend it’s 2018 champion title against Pasaka Festival of Tanauan now the 2019 Grand Aliwan Festival Champion. Manggahan Festival contingent of Guimaras placed 3rd.

In the Float Competition category, Tacloban’s ‘Through the Years’ float hailed as the Champion, while Cebu Sinulog’s IPI 60th year and Palabuni-bunyan of Parang, Maguindanao, placed 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Ms Sinulog Festival bet Nicole Vance Borromeo crowned as the Reyna ng Aliwan 2019.

Are ET Beings Real? If so..Why Can’t We See Them?

People keep asking if Extra-Terrestrials or ET beings real or not?

I normally answer such question with another question. Do you really want to know if they’re real or not? Now if the answer is yes, then we can proceed and let’s explore the world of the ETs also known as aliens. 

The ETs I know are non-physical beings. They vibrate at another energy level or dimension. Definitely, they cannot be seen by most of us, only those clarivoyants (psychics or gifted people who can see spirits or nonphysical beings) or ET contacts can see or hear them.

Though there were instances that ETs can communicate using our modern day communication equipment (phones, radio receivers) and even television with antennas. But people who are known as ‘channels’ can connect with ETs telepathically or in trance state.

I can categorically state here that ETs are around us, living among us, roaming among us, so I don’t think there’s a need to send astronauts into outer space to make ET contacts. They are already here since the ancient times if we also consider those artifacts, ancient writings, mysterious places and other evidences as featured in alien encounters documentaries such as ancient aliens tv series.

The only thing we should do to make contacts with them is we learn to tune in to their frequencies thru telepathy, and channeling though others can even hear their voices. How can we achieve this? I think meditation is the first step to train (tame) our mind. Thru meditation, we can clear or ‘declutter’ our mind from useless thoughts.

Beware of Social Engineering Attacks

We admit the real fact today, most of us people depend our lives on social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr among others.

As we hook ourselves on social media sites, most of us unconsciously or deliberately forget to protect our privacy and we post all details of our personal information and daily routine of our lives.

Mostly people are using social media as their diary, posting their every minute day-to-day life from waking up in the morning until bedtime in the evening.

Social media is very useful to get information for personal gains, sharing and getting news updates but very risky when it comes to giving out your personal information especially when engaging with on-line sellers and always make sure you only deal with legits and not scammers.

We cannot really stop scammers use the social media like facebook, twitter, instagram, and others but I think the best way is we have to control (stop) ourselves sharing our personal information such as location, bank/credit card accounts, passwords, etc.

Not to mention those deliberate attacks to sneak in to your private life and steal your personal media files and ruin your lives by spreading some ‘scandalous videos and photos’.

I think the best way to prevent social media attacks is to know what these attacks are:

Phishing – this is the most common social media attacks using emails, social media at instant messaging and SMS to trick victims to provide sensitive information or visiting malicious URL.

Watering Hole – this type of attack consists of injecting malicious codes into the public web pages of a site that the targets used to visit. The method of injection is commonly used by cyber criminals and hackers. Once a victim visits the page on the compromised website a backdoor trojan is installed on his computer. This method is used for cybere espionage operation or state-sponsored attacks.

Whaling Attack – this is an evolution method of phishing attacks using sophisticated social engineering techniques to steal confidential information, personal data, access credentials. 

Pretexting – the term itself indicates the practice of presenting oneself as someone else to obtain private information by creating fake identity and use it to manipulate the receipt of information.
