DOT’s new campaign: It’s more fun in the Philippines

I think it’s clever.   Let’s “own” the DOT campaign, slogan and all and let’s actively participate in showing the world the many reasons why it’s more fun in the Philippines!

#ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines meme fever:

1. Select a photo showing the beauty of the Philippines

2.  Create a clever caption (witty, as Jayvee Fernandez suggests)

3. Use Harabara Font which can be downloaded for free.

4. Share. Share. SHARE!

So, here’s what I have done using my own photos.  Not commercial quality but hey…I had fun doing it!  It’s addicting actually 🙂

Celebrating a hero’s death, celebrating freedom

the ultimate sacrifice

“It is not the setting aside of August 21 to commemorate the day of Ninoy’s assassination every year that makes him a hero…it is rather the sum of his selfless deeds that makes him so and gives meaning to August 21 as a celebratory occasion for the people to remind ourselves of the meaning of his life and especially of his epic death.”

Privilege Statement of Sen. Nene Pimentel at the Senate                                                                                                                                                                                      August 13, 2008

Ninoy Aquino: A Filipino, a HERO

28 years after his death

that spirit gave us our freedom back

Ninoy Aquino was relentless at claiming back the freedom that the Filipino has been robbed of, even if it took his life to do so.   He gave it up so freely… because “The Filipino, is WORTH DYING FOR”!

28 years after his death, which remains to be unsolved up to this day.
