Everything Filipino

June 12, 2012 is the 114th Independence Day of the Republic of the Philippines.

Nothing much has changed. Our beautiful country is still poverty-stricken and corruption-ridden. That said, one cannot discount the spirit of very Filipino. No matter how hopeless the situation is, trust a Filipino to smile and make a joke of things (though we can be pretty sensitive at times if we’re the subject of jokes). It is how we cope. It makes us resilient.

I don’t want to go in detail of what our independence is all about; the media took care of that already. I will have to catch some special episodes later 😀

Here are some photos of everything Filipino. Maligayang Araw ng Kasarinlan!

Limited Piso edition….

… Commemorating the 150th birth anniversary of our National Hero, Jose Rizal.

The very coñotic signage inside a jeep traversing the Ayala Loop 😀

The best companion to battle the horrible morning traffic \m/

The best radio tandem ever (Gino Q. not in picture). And during the book signing, they greeted me for the whole Robinson’s Galleria to hear. Nice!

Because Filipino is almost equivalent to videoke sessions.

And we’re starting them young…

… until they get the performance level going! \m/

    Nice shots. Ang kulit ng itsura ni jacob. And yung group shots natin. Talagang may caption. Haha!

    Grabe naitabi mo talaga yung 1 peso coin yung limited edition ha and yung the commemorating 150 years birth of Jose Rizal? Wait the two coins are different right?
