Happiest Independence Day!

“Malaya ka na at masaya.” 

I quote my best-est friend.

My family friends and I had an activity to celebrate Philippine’s Independence Day yesterday. Everyone was told to wear costumes but they did not tell me. Saya diba? I was texting Mac and all he told me to bring were hair pins and white long sleeves. Yes, so ako lang yung naka shirt and shorts. Good thing nakahanap ng palusot sina Angel to save my ass. Isa akong DH na dala ko ang aking alaga basta wag ko daw tanggalin yung lampin ko kasi yun nalang ang tanging props ko. Yep, I brought Alessandra. Oh diba, impromptu lahat?

So all they did the whole time was tease me that I am the best in costume. Hahaha! I don’t have a whole body picture if you want to see my best foot forward-costume.

We had activities like learning about Filipino History and Heroes. It was very helpful though I realized that I forgot almost everything that I studied in school before. Partida, History is one of my favorite subjects plus Political Science. Medyo lakas talaga ng tama ng anesthesia the Disney Princess. Char. As in umabot mga questions and discussions sa Trece Martires and ano mga names nila (omg sobrang nagkaroon pa kami ng 4 correct answers, akalain mo yun? Pwede bang kasama rin ako dun kasi nagpaka-marytr ako? Hahaha). Also the names of who made the Filipino flag. Uhm, ano pa ba? Yung Magdalo at Magdiwang group ni Andres Bonifacio. Yung walong sinag chorva I don’t really remember haha! But it was all good. I really felt the spirit of being a Filipino when looking back to these episodes in our history. :)

So before we started, every group took a photo. I just can’t provide photos for our group since we were in the photo haha.

Lakas nanaman mang-trip ni Angelo hahaha. This was supposed to be a solo photo of Uriel. Haha!

Benta rin ng costume ni Angel. Para-paraan. Isa daw siyang OFW na nagtratrabaho sa Saudi. Taena! May dala siyang lumang Panasonic mobile phone tapos isang malaking lumang radyo plus maleta. Hahaha hatalang mga tamad mag-suot ng costume. Check niyo yung mga bling-blings niya haha

I think Mac is trying to portray Dr. Jose Rizal but he turned out to be Waiter Jose Rizal.

Actually sobrang saya namin kahapon. Lakas ng mga asaran and all. I missed spending time with these people. They are worth ng time and pagod. Sabi pa nga nila kahapon, ngayon lang daw ulit sumakit mga puso at tiyan namin kakatawa. And everytime naman magkikita kami is ganun talaga. Ramdam mo ang saya at pagmamahalan.

I cannot wait for next Wednesday since we’re all going to see each other again to celebrate the foundation’s 18th Anniversary! Yes, debut na ng AVFI and may costume theme nanaman kami. At dahil dun, sure na akong informed ako na kailangan mag-costume. So ano kayang pwede kong costume sa Wednesday? Eh galing pa akong work nun. Hmmm. DH ulit? Hahaha!

Hope you had a good celebration of Independence Day! Just not about being independent or being single, it’s about Filipino pride and culture :)
