:Photohunt 172 : Entertainment (Mascot)

Here in the Philippines if you want kids to enjoy birthday parties just celebrate it in Jollibee and you'll surely make them happy. Here's a shot from my niece' 7th birthday which my brother hosted it at Jollibee in Ever branch. Josh was only 3 years old then and he's not so keen on getting close to Jollibee mascot that's why he's not included here, it's just Mitch, the birthday celebrant and Ruth.

Got another entry in my other blog Beyond Horizons:

President Corazon Aquino and Her Memories

Our dear Madame former President Cory Aquino died of cardio-respiratory arrest at 3:18am today at Makati Medical Center leaving with us great memories of Philippines’ historical events of gaining back democracy in our country.

Here’s an excerpt from his son's statement:

The statement read:

"Our mother peacefully passed away at 3:18 a.m., August 1, 2009, of cardio-respiratory arrest. “She would have wanted to thank each and every one of you for all the prayers and your continued love and support. It was her wish for all of us to pray for one another and for our country. “Hinihiling po ng aming pamilya ang kaunting panahon para makasama namin ang aming mahal na ina. “Later today, we will be announcing further details of her wake para sa lahat ng ating mga minamahal na kababayan na nais magbigay ng respeto sa aming ina. Maraming salamat po.” Source :

It’s the first time that I’ll be featuring a political figure in my blog because if you have noticed I’m not blogging about political and showbiz personalities here. Madame Aquino is a different thing as she’s not an ordinary figure for me as she has contributed a lot in regaining back our country’s precious freedom from bondage. It’s very memorable for us who were then students of PUP because a lot of things changed when Pres. Prudente was appointed back by Pres. Aquino. Our campus was in tumult then because we were operated with the strictest regulations and the students who participated in mass actions were handled with grave hands. After the ousting of our campus President and replaced by the original President Prudente things has changed for the better and I graduated with a deep sense of gratitude that democracy has turned our school into a state university with better educational standards and learning structure.
This is just my own personal point of view and I don’t want any political thing about this.

The Yellow Tide

Aquino turned yellow into the color of her campaign. It was, personally, one of her favorite hues; but its political significance stemmed from the yellow ribbons tied around Manila's trees and posts (inspired by an American pop song) by the supporters of her husband to welcome him on what proved to be his tragic return home. Her rallies were seas of yellow. Source : Time Magazine
