Sunduan 2010 May 30, 2010
"Sunduan", meaning to fetch is an old Filipino fiesta ritual that pays tribute to the Filipina's unique Asian beauty. This is participated in by the muses and escorts of the town's different communities, barangay’s and sitios. These muses are then fetched by their escorts from their homes to the town plaza thus the term “Sunduan”. The elders and the alcalde are waiting at the festival site and they select the Lakan and Lakambini of the sunduan – the fairest and most handsome among the participants.
More than the parade of beauties in their extravagant gowns, this festival also portrays the unique character of modesty and the prim and proper attitude that is within the true Filipina. On the other hand, the gentlemen show respect and love to the lovely maidens.
SUNDUAN 2010 was once again successfully staged by the City Government of Dasmariñas with the help of the Kababaihan ng Dasmariñas sa Bagong Milenyo. The event was held at the City Quadrangle starting with a parade around the Poblacion and a short program and awarding followed.
37 pairs representing their barangays and respective institutions participated in the parade wearing extravagant gowns and barongs crafted by Maestro Nueno, Ramon Santiago.
