What is National Pride?
This is the one thing that separates us
from the rest of the world - our colorful
and lively culture that makes us distinctly
Filipino. This includes traditions, language,
arts, etc. which are found in museums,
churches and galleries, found within the
heart of the key cities.
Most provinces have their own identifying
folk dances too wherein they showcase
the elegance and beauty of the way we do
things, the way we dress, the way we see
things as shown in different paintings, as
we have been influenced by events that
happened in our history.

That’s not all. When you have lived in the

Philippines long enough, you’ll know that
it’s not an exaggeration to say there is a
town that’s celebrating its fiesta every
single day.
 The Philippines has a tropical marine climate dominated by a
rainy season and a dry season. The summer monsoon brings heavy
rains to most of the archipelago from May to October, whereas the
winter monsoon brings cooler and drier air from December to
February. Manila and most of the lowland areas are hot and dusty
from March to May. Even at this time, however, temperatures rarely
rise above 37° C. Mean annual sea-level temperatures rarely fall
below 27° C. Annual rainfall measures as much as 5,000 millimeters
in the mountainous east coast section of the country, but less than
1,000 millimeters in some of the sheltered valleys.
 Monsoon rains, although hard and drenching, are not
normally associated with high winds and waves. But the Philippines
does sit astride the typhoon belt, and it suffers an annual onslaught of
dangerous storms from July through October. These are especially
hazardous for northern and eastern Luzon and the Bicol and Eastern
Visayas regions, but Manila gets devastated periodically as well.

identity crisis, had complexes
against our colonial masters and
plunderers from Spain, Japan and

ever be. I care for my fellow citizens in this
country and it is my desire to see them
blessed and prosper. I shall demonstrate my

me the wisdom and capacity to preserve our
economy by actively supporting Filipino
culture, arts and trade Amen.
