This is excerpted from Wikipedia:

Independence Day (Filipino: Araw ng Kasarinlan; also known as Araw ng Kalayaan, (or “Day of Freedom”) is an annual national holiday in the Philippines observed on June 12, commemorating the Philippine Declaration of Independence from Spain on June 12, 1898. Since 1962, it has been the country’s National Day.

And since, it is holiday, what are you going to do now? As excerpted from Wikipedia:

The day is spent with family bonding with friends and relatives and in either outdoor and indoor activities. All government offices and schools are closed as are private enterprises save for commercial establishments. As required by law the Flag of the Philippines, first flown on that day in 1898, is displayed in homes and establishments from as early as May 28, Flag Day, or on a selected date of May by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, which serves as the organizer of the celebrations, to the 30th of the month. Fireworks displays are the norm. Kawit, Cavite holds a yearly commemorative act with the flag raising at the Aguinaldo Shrine and the reading of the Philippine Declaration of Independence. Worldwide, Filipinos will gather on June 12 or a date close to it to publicly celebrate, sometimes with a Philippine Independence Day Parade.

Happy Independence Day Filipinos!

SM City Cebu on Independence Day 2011

Since it was M’s birthday yesterday, we went to SM Cebu City to stroll and look for whatever we could do for his special day. While walking together inside the mall, we passed by in a Philippine flag made of coconut leaves heart-shaped rice pouches.

Ain’t it something new from SM City Cebu on Independence Day 2011?

Anyway, we actually went there, aside from planning to have M a blast for his birthday, to look and buy speakers for him since the newest set of speakers he had just on January this year was recently broken. He can’t pinpoint who did it because he happened to notice the damage of his speakers only when we get back here in Cebu City after our Bacolod City trip last month, May 2011. He forgot to keep his speakers inside his locker in the barracks – those were just left on his shelf beside his bed. Knowing that then, he felt anxious but he can’t blame and rant to anybody but only to me. LOL. So we then decided to better purchase a new one than crying over the spilled milk – broken speakers.

However, after I set a surprise dinner for him, the day just ended and we both forgot to buy speakers. Maybe, we could next time – there’s always a next time.
