Have a pleasant weekend everyone!And to cap off the week on a great mood, please read this article by Patricia Evangelista talking about people we really ought to be proud of as a country. You may remember Ms. Evangelista as the University of the Philippines student who won honor for the country at the International Speaking Competition held in London earlier this year, with her piece 'Borderless world does not preclude the idea of a home'.
That was last May! Well, it does not matter how old a piece is. they become classics and remain in our memories. At least for now that can take our minds off the country's woes.
were you aware of the disclosure that all these were a hoax plotted by the mag-ina to just get attention? there were no contests won by that girl.
i'm sure you were.
anyways, Patricia subsequently came out with an apologetic article retracting the first one. poor girl,hope it does not dampen her good intentions in bringing out true filipino idols to the world.god knows, we need more people possessing national pride.
