It was declared no classes on all levels in Metro Manila and for elementary and highschool levels in NCR today July 27, 2009 because of the SONA (State of the Nation Address) of Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. It is believed to cause traffic.
The SONA started around 4 pm today at the Batasan building and right now our TV was on and I could hear her on the background. My mom is watching it and I could hear her talking about her accomplishments and telling the nation that our economy is stable. I am not sure how long will her speech will take. Hmmm I can hear applauses every time she finishes her few sentences.
