Guinness for Federalism #HandaAwitDavao #TagumpayngPagbabago #PHVoteDuterte

Davao City vies to break the Guinness World Record currently hold by the Bangladesh with
254,00 singing simultaneously of the National Anthem.

The event is dubbed as the " Guinness for Federalism", since May 7 is basically the last day of the election campaigns its normal that there will be a "MITING DE AVANCES" or grand rallies all over the country. In this, the organizers want to make it a grandeur event --- gathering together all the DUTERTE SUPPORTERS to sing in unison the "LUPANG HINIRANG" and be part of Duterte Day (D-Day) activities.

It was organized by the Special Projects Team of the Duterte for President Movement lead by Sir Rocky Balili, Bimbo Morales and Arnold Garbanzos.

As posted in their FACEBOOK PAGE, they are still waiting for the results coming from other areas and collate all the records from each respective City and Municipality. So I guess, the numbers will be counted how many participants are singing the National Anthem, this include those who are in the Luneta and Cebu?

Anyway, while waiting for the result let me give you some highlights on what happened during the Preparation and the May 7 highlights at the Crocodile Park.


Two days before the event (May 5, Wednesday) my friend and I went to the event venue to check the place.

The City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO), the CENRO and the City Engineers Office people are there to see to it that plans are well-executed.

The posting of numbers and markers have already been placed to segregate the participants by 50's (fifty per group), as per advice in the instructions.     

And at the same time ask permission to Crocodile Park owner,  Sir Philip Dizon to have our car park inside the venue for the coming event.

May 7, 10 AM. As what Sir Philip advice us, to come early so that we can park our car inside the Davao Crocodile Park.

And yes, we got a nice spot inside!

Take our lunch first and drive again near the entrance to have our ID's scanned and registered. The scanning registration process will be recorded as part of the GBWR requirements.

It was a festive day for us Dabawenyos, though it's a scorching hot day it doesn't matter, as long as we are there giving our 100% support to our beloved Mayor Rody Duterte.

Since we wear RED SHIRTS, all red shirts are group into 50 as Guinness requires to wear the same color of clothing the likes of RED, BLUE, WHITE, YELLOW and so forth, to easily distinguish one group from the other and make it easier for them to adjudicate.

We belong here!!!!

The singing of the National anthem will start with the signal of the blowing of shofars of the churches in Davao. For you to understand what "shofars" means, watch this video:

For now, we will wait for the final judgement of the Guinness Book of World Record, though it was already published in some newspapers that officially only 94, 584 Dabawenyos are there to beat Bangladesh.
