Ika-108 anibersaryo ng Kalayaan ng Pilipinas

::History 101::

The Philippine Declaration of Independence occurred on June 12, 1898 in the Philippines where Filipino revolutionary forces under General Emilio Aguinaldo (later to become the Philippines' first Republican President) proclaimed the sovereignty and independence of the Philippine Islands from the colonial rule of Spain after the latter was defeated at the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War. The declaration, however, was not recognized by the United States or Spain, as the Spanish government ceded the Philippines to the United States in the 1898 Treaty of Paris, in consideration for an indemnity for Spanish expenses and assets lost. The Philippines celebrated its Independence Day on June 12, although its independence was only recognized on July 4, 1946 by the United States. From 1946 to 1961 Independence Day was observed on July 4, but in the name of nationalism, and upon the advice of historians, President Diosdado Macapagal returned to the June 12 date, which up to that time had been observed as Flag Day.

0854 Araw na ng Kalayaan, buti natapat sa Lunes, hehe double pay ito.. sayang naman kung hindi ako papasok.. aba aba.. libre ngayon ang MRT (sana nga laging ganito.. hehe)
Malaya na nga ba ang Pilipinas? Bakit marami pa rin ang naghihirap.. Bakit marami pa rin ang mga namamatay na aktibista.. Bakit baon pa rin tayo sa utang? Bakit parang sunud sunuran pa rin tayo sa dikta ng ilang makakapangyarihang bansa at organisasyon. Lagi nating naririnig ito "kung gusto mo ng pagbabago, simulan mo sa sarili mo!". Kung ang lahat eh kikilos at magkakaisa.. lahat posible..

0903 Maiba naman gusto ko sanang hindi pumasok para makapaglaro naman ako ng online games, ilang buwan na rin akong hindi nakakapaglaro.. at parang bata na takaw na takaw na ako maglaro.. mahirap talaga pagsabayin ang work at gaming, kelangang may isakripisyo ka.. siguro pag may chance na lang.. saka na ako maglalaro..
