  1. I have never been to Bacolod. I hope that someday I could bring my kids and for them to experience how fun to live in the Philippines. This festival is so much fun to watch.

  2. This is a nice idea as you can be creative with your own mask for the masskara festival.

  3. Wow, those masks really look vibrant and awesome. I think they would be a huge hit when you export them to other countries and large markets seeking for pretty mask designs.

  4. I’ve always wanted to attend festivals outside Cavite and Masskara is just one of them. Wow love your designs Jojo.. hopefully makapunta ako ng Bacolod soon for this festival
    thanks for sharing
