KAAMULAN FESTIVAL is an annual fiesta celebration of the 7 Ethnic Tribes in Bukidnon namely Matigsalug, Tigwahanun, Higaunu, Umayamnun, Manobo, Budkidnon and Talaandig. It is a cultural celebration of the tribe's legendary stories, authentic rituals, ethnic music and street dancing traditions.

Dear Our Awesome Planet Friends,

First of all, thank you for all the awesome support for close to 10 years! Thanks for the honest feedback in the survey last year which greatly influenced my directions for OAP amidst the changing internet landscape :)

After a year, I would like to get feedback on how OAP met your expectations

Please answer the survey here -- OAP Survey 2014.

As I plan for the next decade of OAP, I want to make sure to incorporate as much feedback as possible on how to continue what's working, to correct what's not, and to understand your expectations for OAP for the years to come.

Also, I am excited for 2015 and beyond as the Philippines turns a new chapter with the ASEAN Integration, Tipping Point on Tourism and a new President.

I read all the survey feedbacks (both positive and negative) and it directly influences my plans and directions for OAP.

After answering the 2014 Survey, can you give me a vote for Media Tourism Star? Go to http://tourismstar.ph/, select Jose Antonio Diaz, click vote and enter your Name, Email Address and Contact Number then confirm Vote!
