1. The Filipina Beauty @ The Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon Philippines

    Lucban Quezon:

    Legend has it the town derives its name from the lucbán or pomelo tree. Three hunters from neighbouring Majayjay— named Marcos Tigla, Luis Gumba and Lucas Manawa— lost their way following the trail of some wild animals at the foot of Mount Banahaw. Resting under a tree, they saw a crow (uwák) in the tree’s branches, and believing this to be a bad omen, they moved to another place and rested again. Whilst in the shade of a large pomelo (lucbán) tree, the trio were attracted to a couple of kingfishers (salacsác) that were singing. Fascinated by the bird’s beautiful plumage and rhythmic chirps, the superstitious hunters took this a sign of good fortune and thus settled in the place they named “Lucbán.”
