Lake Sebu, South Cotabato: Dressing Up like the T'bolis



One of the first activity we had when we arrived at the first falls aside from admiring the gigantic falls which sprinkled us with early morning cold waters was to have a family portrait wearing the famous weaving of the T'bolis called Tinalak. Strictly, the tinalak weaving is the one worn by father (center). The black with specks of white are worn by the elderly women while the colorful ones are worn by the young ladies. There are no difference in the skirt's design for the young and old women. At a minimal fee of P50, one can rent the costume from head to never-mind-the-toes and take unlimited selfies and groupies. It is also in this area where one can request a photo of mock-zipline which they cleverly offer to those who are afraid of the heights.
