Last January 19 marked the 2014 Sinulog Festival, being the third Sunday of the opening month of the year. That's when the festival commemorating our conversion to Roman Catholicism is traditionally held. So what has this got to do with cars?
Well, a guy named Stephano Kerr Zamora sent us the following photos, showing a Honda City being scribbled on by festival goers using what seem to us like whiteboard markers. The sender didn't indicate whether he owns this car or he just took these pictures. Apparently, merrily (and colorfully) writing on cars has become sort of a tradition during the annual festival.
We're also not sure where these photos were taken exactly, but we're assuming Leyte since one of the images shows a lady scribbling "Bangon Ormoc." The Sinulog is celebrated in Leyte, Cebu and Misamis Oriental.
Anyway, apart from the usual scrawling of "Viva Pit Señor!" and various monikers of the revelers, we were delighted to see that the sender (presumably) and his friends had scribbled "Top Gear Philippines" on the City's hood and above its right fender.
Thank you, guys! It's like being there in spirit.
