Philippines Declaration of Independence


The Philippine declaration of Independence transpired on June 12, 1898 in Cavite, Philippines. The declaration however, was neither recognized by the United States nor Spain. The United States recognized Philippine independence on July 4, 1946.

July 4 was observed in the Philippines as Independence Day until August 4, 1964 when, upon the advice of historians and the urging of nationalists, President Diosdado Macapagal signed into law Republic Act No. 4166 designating June 12 as the country's Independence Day.

Recently, the City Government of Maasin decided to have a fun run "Takbo para sa Kalayaan" or "Run for Independence" to commemorate Philippines' Independence Day. My friends and I will be joining the event which in my part, is interesting.

WHAT: Takbo para sa Kalayaan
WHEN: June 12, 2011; 5:00am
Where: Maasin City Plaza
NOTE: no registration is needed

Lanzones Festival in CAMIGUIN


Why do I want to experience and join that festival?

Camiguin Province is an island born of fire. It's interesting to see how the island looks like. I've never been to Camiguin and I guess I would surely enjoy the place especially in October that the province will celebrate LANZONES FESTIVAL.

The Lanzones fruit is a major source of the Camiguin Islands' livelihood and it is for the annual harvest that they celebrate this thanksgiving day. I have tasted lanzones fruit harvested in my family's farm in Leyte but I've never tasted lanzones from Camiguin. According to my friends, lanzones fruit from Camiguin is the best, far from our Lanzones in Leyte. I guess it would be an honor for me to visit that place and to taste their very own Lanzones fruit.

I want to experience how the people celebrate and enjoy the festival. I don't know what to expect but as I look at the photos in internet, it looks very jolly, interesting and creative.

There's a lot more to see in Camiguin. White sand beaches, waterfalls, hot springs, volcanoes, jungle and many more! What else can I ask for?

I miss him!


What do you do when you miss the person you love the most?

I listen to our favorite songs: Umbrella, Love Song, Faithfully, The Lazy Song and many more. It makes me feel that we sing these songs together. I can feel his presence. I think of him everyday of my life. I hope he thinks of me too.

I download and/or watch movies. Yes, I kind of fantasized that he is watching movies with me. I miss all our dates in cinemas. We love to watch movies together. I remember how it was watching a scary movie with him. I shouted so loud and he was there to laugh and comfort me. I miss those times. He is the sweetest person I have known in my life.

I write poems. He's my inspiration why I write. He gives me a lot of ideas. Because of him, I am able to develop my skills in writing. I hope that the framed poem I have given to him is now placed inside his room. I hope he likes it. I can't wait to write more poems for him!

I scroll all our photos together from the first day we met until now. It makes me miss him so much. Tears fell down and roll over my cheeks. Long distance relationship has been so hard but it makes me strong. The feeling of being in love and be loved is like WOW. I can't describe the feeling. It is bursting! People asked me how I handle this kind of relationship. All I can say is that I have the PATIENCE and COURAGE to wait. It doesn't matter if I wait for months as long as we love each other and that we know that we will be seeing each other again in the right place at the right time.

Jeg elsker deg fra bunnen av mitt hjerte Lyngve!
