Happy National Flag Day!








  
On March 6, 1965, Presidential Proclamation No. 374 was issued declaring May 28 as National Flag Day to commemorate the date the national emblem was first unfurled after the Philippine Revolutionary Army defeated the Spanish fores in the Battle at Alapan, Imus, Cavite in 1898. On May 23, 1994, Executive Order No. 79 was issued extending the period of celebrating National Flag Day from May 28 to June 12. All Filipinos are encouraged to display the Philippine flag in all offices, agencies and instruments of government, business establishments, schools, and private homes throughout this period.


The image is a watercolor sketch of the Philippine Flag by Juan Luna for today's start of celebration of Flag Days.

May 28 commemorates the day in 1898 when the flag was first carried into Battle of Alapan during the Philippine Revolution. The celebration starts from May 28 until June 12, the Philippine Independence Day. All Filipinos are then encouraged to display the Philippine flag in all offices, agencies and instruments of government, business establishments, schools and private homes throughout this period provided that they abide the law governing its proper use and display, as mandated by Republic Act 8491 (The Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines).

KOHL Philippine Made Products, We Can Be Proud Of!



       Kohl Industries Corporation gave an event for bloggers, which i was glad, to have been invited, to attend.
  
      We were introduced to their line of homecare products. I easily recognized one of their product, Doctor J alcohol, and readily agree with the speaker, as to the effectiveness and  unique scent of it, having use said alcohol before and up to now. 
     




        And i was excited to know, about their other products as well, after Doctor J alcohol. 
Like the Bactigel Hand Sanitizer, it has  a 68% alcohol, and is effective in getting rid of disease-causing bacteria and germs from your hands and is very handy.




       And their Orasil,  is an innovative mouthwash, which utilizes stabilized hydrogen peroxide andxylitol, as substitutes for possibly harmful ingredients that are commonly used in other formulas. Proven to be beneficial, these two ingredients effectively whitens teeth and keeps breath fresh throughout the day. And more..
       
       I'm sure these new products are equally satisfying in terms of quality and more, coming from company, who is experience in this line of products, for many years now.  But what's more good about it, is that these products are Philippine made, Therefore, they contribute in alleviation of the effects of the economic crunch that has been affecting many households in the country. At the same time, able to provide employment and business opportunities to the Filipino community.

Filipino Bloggers Hub: A Simple Acquaintance Party


   In the cyber world where all bloggers are moving-in has become more challenging due to different trends that have been born from time to time in every click and tick of their finger on the mouse. As the blogger pursue their passion, they tend to produce more effective write-ups that are based on their experiences, observation and even with their own opinion.



    Today, blogging becomes a good portal of advertisement and online promotion because it can give a huge impact and easy to access information upon clicking the publish button. In just one click, everything went to life as it was being shared and like by others instantly upon uploaded. 
      Given that bloggers exist every minute and seconds in every social-networking site as well as in the blogging flat form. While giving the readers and other people to have the latest updates as well as entertainment in their web sites or blog sites. But wait a minute; did all bloggers who read other sites blog knew the author personally or acquaintance? I think, not! 
    Perhaps, some know each other while others tend to get intimidated or something as they see each other in different places. Why? Maybe because they never get a chance to be introduce to each other.
    Moreover, the blogosphere in the Philippines is just a small piece of the universal blogosphere. Where is so impossible to know the person one by one in a particular websites or blog site?  And so, bloggers created an event that we called “Filipino Bloggers Hub Party” to get a chance to see, meet and know the person behind in every blog that we read, follow and subscribe to. 
    On the 19th of May 2012, 1:00pm at the Central Colleges of the Philippines, bloggers around the Metro will gather to have a simple acquaintance party with full of surprises, giveaways, fun games and raffles.  This is the chance to meet and know other bloggers, and this is the day that all bloggers will unite and promise to continue what started intelligently as to give people good, and balance information that people want to know. 
   To all bloggers in the Metro out there, we would love to know you more and see you in the 1st Filipino Bloggers Hub Party of the year!
