Regional Rivalries?

Anyway, its Sinulog festival time here in the Philippines, the main festival of us Hiligaynon’s rivals, the perfidious Cebuanos.

Look at them all trying to strut with their fluvial parades and shwit.

Anyway, I dont actually dislike Cebuanos because I have Cebuano friends but I just consider them friendly competition.

But they are not the only people with a purdy city in the region.

Iloilo Represent! Madya-as Kedatuan > Cebu Rajahnate.

What are some friendly rivaries between. Veitnamese regions and ethnicities?

In Mindanao there is the Hiligaynon-Lanao rivalry between Hiligaynon settlers and the Sultanate of Lanao. There’s also the Chavacano-Tausug rivalry between the Republic of Zamboanga and Sulu Sultanate.

And soon with the imminent relocation of the capital from Manila to Clark (A former American military base), in Luzon island there will be a Tagalog-Kapampangan rivalry.

About the author

I primarily write about anything under the sun from Philosophy, History to Calculus, and a secondary job I have is also teaching languages; I am a native in the English and Filipino languages, an L2 level speaker in Spanish and L1 in Latin and am studying basic French and Arabic. I also formally studied Philosophy in the Seminary in the Order of Augustinian Recollects; in High School I majored in Creative Writing; and I am now dabbling in Computer Science. I have a brown belt in a martial art, sadly I m rusty since I havent practiced in ages; I am looking for fellow weekend warriors to spar and wrestle with.I also have passed the Philippine Civil Service Exams and I was once employed as an Office Manager in my family's Law Firm. I am the top contributor by number of edits in the Wikipedia Article about the Philippines. I also won best debator in my Order's Debate Symposium held last 2010. I also love to sing, Rock, Power Ballad and Classical are my preferred genres when performing. I am a proud Illongo from Jaro: "La Muy Y Noble" (The most loyal and noble) is our collective motto. However I am driven most by the awareness that I am the most imperfect and sinful of all people. I am an Augustinian in spirit even though I am a layman and I put Saint Augustine's words to heart: "“Nevertheless, lest the will itself should be deemed capable of doing any good thing without the grace of God, after saying, “His grace within me was not in vain, but I have laboured more abundantly than they all,” he immediately added the qualifying clause, “Yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” ― Augustine of Hippo, On Grace and Free Will
