Hi! I’m Farrah and I am from Camotes Island, Cebu in the Philippines. Camotes Island is a very nice place. There are four towns in Camotes Island. The four towns are Poro, San Francisco, Tudela, and Pilar. I live in Esperanza, a big barangay in (village) Poro and I attended a school in the center town of Poro, which is a long way. There are tons of beaches and resorts in Camotes Island such as Santiago Bay, Busay Falls, Bohu Rock, Mangodlong etc. I have been to most of them. Camotes is a group of 3 islands which are Pacijan (San Francisco), Poro (towns of Poro and Tudela), and Ponson (Pilar).
There is an important festival in Poro during which the communities in Poro gather around the main community of Poro. Some wear the costumes and dance in the schools of central Poro like the elementary schools. This festival is called Tagbo or Sinulog Festival which is also celebrated in Cebu, and it is celebrated on the third Friday of January.
In San Francisco there is a mercado (market) where I usually used to go with my family on Sundays. This place is very nice. There are many stores and shops there especially on Sundays. I remember when I used to eat barbeque hotdogs and puso (hanging rice) in one of those food shops. I also remember when I lived there, I used to accompany my grandparents and meet a lot of friends and relatives.
So that’s all about Camotes Island!
