13-Year Old Filipino Kid Wins International Children’s Peace Prize 2012

Our country, Philippines was so proud of Cris “Kesz” Valdez for he won the prestigious International Children’s Peace Prize 2012 on Sept. 20, 2012. Only at 13 years old, Kesz is determined to educate children who are living on the streets about personal hygiene and he even takes care of their wounds. He has given them inspiration and hope. I am sure that when he grows older, he’d continue to do good deed on his community.Good job Kesz !

This is his acceptance speech:

New President, New Hope

Now that we have a new Pres. inaugurated last June 30, I’m very sure many are optimistic about the new changes that Pres. Noynoy Aquino can bring to our country. I also wish that there’ll be more jobs created for those that need it, prime commodity prices should be more stable, less corrupt govt. officials and lots more.

I’m positive that Pres. Aquino will do his best to keep his promise but for sure the result will not be overnight. Probably around 2-3 years we should already see major changes. I hope he’d also look into social security disability programs for people and more ways on how he can alleviate poverty in this country. Eventhough I didn’t vote for him, I’m still giving my trust and support.

1st Automated Election

The much awaited 1st Automated Election this coming Monday, May 10, 2010 is very much anticipated by many. I could hear jingles of our local candidates on the streets over and over again that it’s already annoying my ears most especially when I’m taking a nap in the afternoon.

I already have my choices Pres and Vice Pres. slots but I still need to fill about 3 more names for the Senators. I guess I need to read their bio and flatforms once again so I’ll have more ideas. For the local ones, I have my mayor and vice mayor but it looks like that I’m not picking too many councilors. There are not too many good choices and frankly I don;t want to vote someone that has no track record in our town.

With all the booboos on the pcos machine and all, i hope the election will turn out peaceful, honest and a lil’ organize if not perfect. Let’s all vote so that we can exercise our rights.

Pres. Gloria Arroyo’s Last SONA

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.
