Photohunt: Shadow

Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Monument in Kawit, Cavite

This was taken on September 26, 2005 during my daughter’s educational field trip .

From Wikipedia:

Emilio Aguinaldo (March 23, 1869 – February 6, 1964) was a Filipino general, politician, and independence leader. He played an instrumental role during the Philippines’ revolution against Spain, and the subsequent Philippine-American War that resisted American occupation.

Aguinaldo became the Philippines’ first President. He was also the youngest (at age 29) to have become the country’s president, and the longest-lived (having survived to age 94).


To go or not to go

My daughter is having second thoughts about joining her classmates to the fieldtrip next month. She said only few of her classmates have paid the fee and her friends are not even part of those willing to join. This is the reason why she is having a hard time deciding whether to go or not.

Meantime, I hope the vehicle hired by the school admin to transport the students and teachers during the fieldtrip should be in top shape to avoid untoward incidents. Drivers should have spare UTV or ATV Parts and accessories just in case they’ll get flat tire along the way.
