Kite Flying

kite-wIt was started when I was 7 years old.  Making a kite became my hobby, from a bamboo stick, Japanese papers, glue and a nylon cord I can already make a colorful kite during my early age and until now I still do it during my spare time especially when summer vacation.

Now that I’m grown up, It is easy for me to make different shapes of kite since I’m doing it since my childhood.  One time, during Pista’y Dayat celebration in Pangasinan, I joined the kite flying competition in line with the celebration.  I made a colorful kite and made it in accordance with the Pista’y Dayat theme, because of that I won the first prize, not only I enjoyed kite flying but I did bring home an award for the most beautiful kite made during that kite flying competition.

I joined two consecutive kite flying competitions  in line with annual Pista”y Dayat celebration and I also won two consecutive first prize.  Because of that I can no longer join on the third year competition I became over qualified and the committee on that event offered me to be one of the judges.  for me it was a great honor.  Before,  my kites were being judged but now I’m the one who’s judging those beautiful and colorful kites.


kiteDuring Summer Kite Festival is in, so young ones and even old ones were busy making their own kite, from flat, geometric to figurative shapes. There’s a long line for registration of kite for a kite competition. Registration starts at 7am to 3pm. The audience can’t wait to see the kite presentation until finally at 3pm,  kites started to fly.   First kite to fly is the flat category followed by figurative and the most awaited is the geometrical kites, under geometrical category is the most difficult kite to do, you can’t even notice that it was made by pinoy here in Philippines because of it’s world class looks, but in deed it’s a 100% pinoy made. While judges of kite festival were roaming around to judge each kite.  I took the chance to took pictures from different colorful kites.  The participants can’t even feel the heat of the sun as they enjoy kite flying.
