Independence Day

Happy Independence Day people! Today we celebrate the historical "Araw ng Kalayaan" of the Philippines so it's a holiday. If you don't know the history then i'll share a bit about it.

The Philippine Flag was first shown when President Emilio Aguinaldo waved it in front of so many people at Kawit, Cavite as he proclaimed the independence of the Filipinos in 1898. Also, the Lupang Hinirang, composed by Julian Felipe, was first heard and declared officially to be our Philippine National Anthem that day. So, during our Independence Day, so many flags were being hung in the streets and hi-ways and the cars have flags also and the buildings etc etc.. And different Nationalist Organizations organize some cooL festives and programs and people always go and watch it.

I was supposed to go to Fort Bonifacio today for the AKOMISMO concert but i don't have anyone to go with me here. Anyways...if you're not busy guys.. i suggest that you also join this site.. It's for Filipinos' like us. check this out for more info... .... ja! Happy Independence Day!
