Who can forget the best memories I have in Marinduque, Philippines? Of course not me. So let me share some amazing facts of Marinduque Province where I think few people only knew. By the way, Marinduque is labeled as the Heart of the Philippine archipelago. Just I learned from them.
Moreover, the province is composed of six beautiful municipalities, Mogpog, Buenavista, Torrijos, Sta. Cruz, Gasan and Boac as the center of commercialization and industry.
The Traditional Putong
It’s only in Marinduque where you can experience the very famous “Putong” (crowning). It is a traditional and unique way of welcoming visitors. The Marinduqueno (locals) will sing their native song while dancing. The dancers brought with them bouquet of flowers and native crowns. When the music stopped, they will offer the flowers and then, you will be crowned. The whole Putong ceremony seems to be crowing a royalty. By the way, I felt that time like a Queen.
Where to eat?
What to expect?
The best time to visit Marinduque is during the Holy Week, where the whole community celebrates the Moriones , an annual festival. The “Moriones” are men and women in costumes and masks replicating the garb of biblical Roman soldiers as interpreted by local folks.
BTW, people in Marinduque are early sleepers. You can expect the roads in tranquil even at early night. ####
