Fire Dance Exhibition in Torrijos, Marinduque

At the Bikini Open Festivities called "Huling Hirit Sa Taginit" " (LAST FLING OF SUMMER")* held last June 3, 2011 in Poctoy White Beach, Torrijos, Marinduque, there was a Fire Dancing Exhibition. The fire dancing team were from the neighboring island of Mindoro from the town of Puerto Galera. The following is the 7 minutes video of their performance. It is mesmerizing and indeed very entertaining. I wish I was there during the performance. However, I am happy to relay their performance via YouTube. Enjoy!

*I am not sure if my translation of Huling Hirit sa Taginit is correct. So all you tagalog speaking natives please correct. My original dialect is Ilonggo.

Do not forget the related videos on this set if you like bikinis and beautiful young bodies of both genders.

Fling comes up in Thesaurus as to throw, toss or pitch. You might be referring to the slang of fling which is an affair or a relationship of a couple.

Hirit does not have an exact English translation. The closest ones I could think of are take a chance, try, choose or opt. The phrase could be translated as "The last chance of summer".

Hi Pinoy Webster! Thank you for your comment. Now that you mention "huling hirit" as last chance, it does remind me that there is an ilonggo word "hirit" which meant to draw another card in the game of gin rummy. Are there any Ilonggos reading this blog? Am I correct or not?
