My beloved country, the Philippines has its 15th president inaugurated today - BENIGNO AQUINO III. I was following it Live through ANC Live feeds, Twitter and Facebook. I was updating my facebook profile almost every 5 minutes of the latest happenings of the event. It was fun! I was excited and happy to witness this special event in our country although we are not physically there. We have been living abroad for almost three years now but our hearts and hopes still belong to our mother land. Definitely, no one can question that, there is no place like home.
Charice Pempengco sang the National Anthem and she sang it with the correct tempo. This has been a big deal lately because some artists (includes Arnel Pineda of Journey) who sang it during the Manny Pacquiao's fight, done it on their own style instead of sticking to the original tempo/beat (marching) of the song. So the National Historical Institute(NHI) is not happy, artists making it too ballad. -This is just side story.
Alright, so the newly inaugurated president had a 20+ minutes speech mostly in Tagalog. We have heard the synopsis of his plan for the country. We are hopeful that he can make a difference in the governance this time. We will do our part as a citizen. We hope for the better Philippines. We hope for a better future in our land.
God bless PRESIDENT NINOY AQUINO and VP Jejomar Binay. We pray to the Lord that He will guide you to honest and meaningful governance.
