uhm, no need for the mask? (sorry, that was mean.)


Frogs and catholicism in the Philipines... Has this, by any chance, lead to the sanctification of Kermit? Saint Kermit, the patron saint of all frogs - why not... :-)

Mickey the Frog in the Philippines!

This series is SO cute! It made me smile :).


I've never seen frogs been celebrated like celebrities! But it's a nice insight of this festival Sidney.



I've never seen a place where frogs are revered and celebrated ! The pics are enough to tell the story :)


the kapampangans certainly have a healthy sense of humor, as shown by ur nice photos ahaha


Hello again Sidney, just enjoying your wonderful photoblog and to thank you for the thoughtful comments you left me.

I don't know what you put in that camera of yours but it sure makes the photos come out alive and vibrant. You got the touch!


now that's funny. he's like a mythical creature now. half frog half human. say like the mythical garuda (half human, half bird) or griffin (half phoenix, half lion) or the centaur (half man, half horse). i like a nice laugh before putting that huge froggy head on.


I prefer this to the frogs actually being dressed up.


Ils ont de l'humour ces filipinos. Et puis toujours entre dérision et désespoir!
