the latest addition to my necklace collection. hahaha. got this from Baguio for only P35.
this is a continuation of the “I do not know the dignity of his birth, but I do know the glory of his death” | 112512 blog post. like i said, right after we packed up and left Libingan ng mga Bayani, we headed to the Manila American Cemetery in Taguig. it was my first time to go there, so… i took lots of photos because i was pretty much amazed by the place.
i was surprised to see Sgt. Isabelo Banda on the list. one proud Banda right here!!!!!!!!! =))))))))))) lol ok i should shut up
the Guillermos were there too!!!!
moving on, though…
the whole hallway was filled with names of soldiers from the Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines. my uncle once tried reading ALL the names (from the A in the Army section to the very last name in the Marines section) — and he finished reading at around 12 midnight (he started reading at 9 in the morning… or at least that’s what he told me).
and i end this post with a shitty photo (the wind wouldn’t cooperate so…fck that)
yesterday, we celebrated what was supposed to be my grandfather’s 66th birthday. we went to Libingan ng mga Bayani to visit grandpa after what’s been more than 6 months.
when we got there, the first thing we did was to fix our “tent” HAAHAHHAA. it was pretty difficult to do because the wind kept blowing the damn thing away.
after we succeeded with setting it up, we did nothing but take photos, eat, talk to gramps and take a nap hahaha
after almost 2 hours of staying there, we decided to pack up and head (nope we weren’t heading home yet) to the Manila American Cemetery. :-)
