has respective culture and tradition.
Thats what makes our country
exceptional from the other country. Our

tradition but unfortunately as the
modernization enveloped our present

Our culture and tradition is our
countrys treasure. As a Filipino its our
responsibility to save it. Lets make a move
and dont let our future generation will just
