Embark on a vibrant New Year’s Eve morning adventure in Dumaguete City’s bustling market! Navigate through the chaotic traffic as fruit stands overflow with an array of local and imported round fruits. Discover the tradition of twelve round fruits believed to usher in good luck for the upcoming year.

Experience the unique way locals choose to make noise and drive away evil spirits—torotot, the toy trumpet, in all shapes and sizes, replaces traditional firecrackers. Sidewalks and small shops showcase round cakes, creating a festive atmosphere on what locals fondly refer to as the ‘snack mile.’

Join me for a seat in a bustling eatery, where locals indulge in sticky rice and chocolate made from the famous tablea. As the day unfolds, explore the side streets adorned with sari-sari stores selling long noodles and wrappers for spring rolls.

Venture off the beaten path to encounter a woman with enormous, unidentified flowers that she claims bring luck. Engage in conversation with her and discover the beauty of Osmoxylon talaudense—the giant flowers that unexpectedly find their way into my home. Join me on this lively journey through the heart of Dumaguete City’s New Year’s Eve festivities!
