Everything Pinoy on this Saturday’s episode of GMA-7’s Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho and first up is the “bahagsketball” players of Mountain Province! The Philippines is indeed a basketball country. But during the recently-concluded Ayyoweng di Lambak ed Tadian Festival, what can be considered as an all-American sport, got a native twist as Igorots donned traditional loin cloths or “bahag” while playing basketball. Women also had their share of fun as they wore the conventional “tapis” during a game of volleyball.
From the highlands of Tadian, culture and excitement continue to abound in the Pintados Festival in the province of Iloilo. When Spanish colonists reached Iloilo, they came across natives donning distinctive tattoos all over their bodies. Today, watch as Ilonggos share this age-old tradition to their most faithful companion in the farm as they cover their pet carabaos or “kalabaw” in vibrant colored paints for the festival.
And, get to meet real-life “Pinoy Einsteins” in the likes of the Computer Engineering students of Mapua Institute of Technology who were able to invent the Braille Cellphone and the Mechanical and Electrical Engineering students of the University of the Philippines who came up with a hybrid car that is said to be eco-friendly and consumes less gas.
All these and more in this week’s episode of Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Saturday after KapusoMovienight on GMA-7. (GMA Network)
