Philippines Independence Day Festivities

While the Philippines Independence Day Parade already happened, today is the actual Philippines Independence Day.

I’ve heard that Angels City will reenact of the declaration of Philippine Independence at its actual venue – the Pamintuan Mansion. Too bad I have no clue where Angel City is.

I do know I’d love to do something fun, patriotic, and very Filipino during my weekend in Manila City.

Any suggestions?

    Hi Wayan! ^___^ Welcome to Manila hehe

    Angel City is actually Angeles City at Pampanga — A 2-hour (3?) bus ride from Manila. I suggest you stay if don’t have a tour guide with you hehe.

    Unfortunately, I can’t give you any ideas on what to do today. Having this day as a non-working holiday, I stay home and sleep. Zzzz

    This is what confuses me so – no one here seems to know of any big events on Independence Day. Kinda lame, I think, that this day doesn’t have parades and such or at least big cookouts and fiestas.

    one thing: don’t watch news tonight, the giant networks just tend to make Filipinos hate themselves and blame others for so and so. instead, try watching “living asia” on cable. ganda ng pinas!

    Head for Intramuros! LOL. Or check out Celdran (Walking) Tours.

    Heh. There’s a shortage of national pride in these parts. -_-;

    national pride? i commend that principal from that public school who almost got poked on the face by that GMA-7 reporter for asking what she thought of poor public school calibre as opposed to the high quality education of exclusive schools. thank god, the principal didn’t bite the rabid reporter’s trap. she lashed out on her, instead, for the audacity to ask such an assuming question that belittles her teaching skills.
