    Annually, during 15th of the 3rd lunar month, Miao people will have this grand event known as Sisters Meal Festival, lasting for 3 days. Not like how it sounds, the festival has more to do with lovers than to sisters. Young single girls would make five-colored stick rice out of natural herbs. Underneath the rice, a girl hides a pledge of love and brings the basket of rice to the very young boy she loves. Thus some call it the oldest Oriental Valentine.

    It's the first day of the festival event. Today we will attend the celebration in the village, which mounts a carnival of singing, dancing, reed-pipe-blowing, drumming, boat-racing and bull-fighting.
