Filipino

There's a place in the Philippines called Divisoria. Its like heaven for the budget shopper where you get good deals on garments accessories and other consumer dry goods. For men its like a junk yard where you find all these cool parts to play with. Or a warehouse of old industrial equipment waiting for you to buy.

Today, my Tes went there to accompany her sister who lives in London. I asked her why would her Ate want to buy stuff in Divisoria? She said that he kids want Divisoria flipflops because they're cheap, good and remind them of home. I'm proud of this family because they have not forgotten who they are. One of Ate's kids proudly wears a "sun and stars" shirt. He even wears a tricolor inspired pair of slip-ons. They're so nationalistic that Ate had to hunt for shirts by the late Francis M.

No matter where you are, if you're born Filipino you will always be Filipino.

It is great that people are thinking about the environment and working to make the world a safer place. Not only the materials that you are using on your home are safe for the environment but dump trucks have come a long way since the earlier models. We are learning and expanding and coming up with a wide range of safer more effective vehicles for the work force. I think it is great that many auto manufacturers are turning to hybrid vehicles to protect the environment and now they are even using hybrid dump trucks.
