Once again we were invited by our friend Eli G. Manlangit to Bayawan City, This time for the Daygon 2015 – contest. We only can speak for ourselves and some people in the audience we talked to, the evening was a beautiful, entertaining event
28th Tawo-Tawo Festival
The Tawo Tawo Festival 2015 in Bayawan City marked its 28th of its kind. The festival is certainly one of the most famous celebrations of whole Negros Island. What need to be mentioned in a very positive way is the organization. Mr. Eli G. Malangit runs a tight, well thought through, and intelligent office.
Therefore it is not surprising that the showdown as well as the street-dancing started in time. An event starting in real-world time is in the Philippines as rare as an ice-block in the Sahara.
Mr. Malangit told the Dumaguete.com team: “I can not let the children sitting and waiting in the heat for some VIPs and officials to arrive. We start in time !“.
Tawo-Tawo Festival Showdown
The Tawo-Tawo 2015 Showdown started at 10:00 am. At that point most participants were already up and practicing since hours. The sun was already burning and if anybody needed a quick breakfast, it would have been no problem to boil an egg on the cemented grounds. The opening speeches were kept pleasantly brief and the first group got ready. Nine contingents were participating. Five in the Gagmay/Junior Tawo-Tawo category, four in the Dagko/Senior Tawo-Tawo category. Following some pictures (not sorted by contingents).
Gagmay Tawo-Tawo Category
- Barangay Boyco

- Bayawan East Central School
Dagko Tawo-Tawo Category

The Miss Bayawan 2015 beauty pageant was held on the IBC grounds (Integrated Business Center). It was split into two events, the talent night and the coronation night. The Miss Bayawan Talent Night was held on February 15th in front of a patiently waiting crowd. The Coronation Night took place the following evening. When the talent night finally started, the eight candidates entered the stage in what the organizer called “play-dress”.
Miss Bayawan Talent Night
After -what appeared never ending- speeches, introductions and intermissions it was time for the Miss Bayawan 2015 candidates to show their talent. With all respect to the effort the candidates put into their performance, it appeared that they rather do something their handler want, but not something they are talented in. Our office goldfish shows more talent when playing piano than what we witnessed on the IBC stage. Maybe nowadays talents are limited to speed-texting and clicking “Like” on social networks, both not suitable for a big stage. Anyway, here some pictures:
An event like this can’t be held without many hand working together. Following some of them:
Miss Bayawan 2015 – Coronation Night
Miss Bayawan 2015 Coronation Night was clearly on a much higher level compared to the happenings just 24 hours earlier at the Talent Night. To get the audience at the packed IBC grounds into the right mood the eight candidates presented themselves in stunning Tawo-Tawo costumes.
Miss Bayawan Swimsuit & Business attire
The business attire round as well as the candidates in swimsuits were next to be on stage.
Miss Bayawan 2015 – Evening Gown
Not “50 Shades of Grey”, but any variation of blue was the color for the gowns the candidates presented themselves on the stage in front of an enthusiastic crowd. Make your own pick who would be your winner of the titla.
Congratulations to Miss Bayawan 2015
