Subli-an sa Batangas
Held every July 23 is the Subli-an sa Batangas. The festival, originally started as a religious devotion to the Holy Cross, which later developed into a dance form calledthe Subli, a dance indigenous to Batangas. Subli is danced to the accompaniment of a song in four voices:the first voice is sung by the performer, t the second voice extolls the Holy Cross of Bauan and narrates the history of Batangas, the third voice is the "Subli" proper which combines poetry, dance and music, while the fourth voice features the observer in his search for the lost self.

The Subli is therefore an art form the culls the insights of the townsfolk and congeals this into the musical structure so designed that it is regarded as a "lesson in grace." The Subli tradition, however, has lately expanded into a festival featuring street dancing and involving the town of bauan and Batangas City, and
was lately held to coincide with the province's Foundation Day.

Making a Kite

Flying a kite is good exercise and a lot of fun (even if you don’t get the kite up in the air). Instead of going out and buying a kite, make one instead. You will need fabric (or very
strong paper), strong glue, two wooden dowels and string.

To begin, lay the two dowels in a cross position and use some of the string to lash the sticks together into that position. You will do this by weaving the string in and out of the
dowels. Once the dowels are secure, put glue on the string and leave it to dry. Once this is done you should have a strong frame for your kite. Making a Kite
