Before leaving for Japan, I was invited by my friends from Camera Club of Negros to join them in a photophoot for the 12th Mudpack Festival in Mambukal, Murcia, Negros Occidental. Funny but I have been staying almost all my life in the said province but I haven't heard of this kind of event, until recently. LOL!

We went there before lunch time and the place was in a festive mood. Participants painted with mudpack and clay were sights to behold. Despite the downpour, the event was held successfully.

The festival is a symbolic celebration of man's return to primitive time when he was closer to nature. Oneness with nature is the underlying theme behind this annual mud-moving spectacle. Check on its murky highlight - a lively street dancing parade with the participant wearing nothingbut mudpacks (well, almost...). It's a surefire way to mix our ecological concerns with good, clean, cloddy fun - just be sure to shower afterwards!

Here are some of the shots I took.

Well, mud is not that dirty you know! LOL! and they say its good for the skin. Might as well paint my whole body with it.



  1. Such absolute fun. But I must adnmit I would probably have more fun watching others rather than being involved. Most interesting post!

  2. What incredible images. I was utterly mesmerized.


any thoughts to distill?
