MALIGAYANG Araw ng mga puso sa inyong lahat! Kanya-kanyang diskarte para mapasaya ang ating mga mahal sa buhay. Siyempre, karaniwan na ang pagbibigay ng mga tsokolate, rosas at card. ‘Yung iba, matagal nang nagpa-reserve ng mesa sa mga paborito nilang restaurant. ‘Yung iba naman, sorpresa ang inihanda.

The Philippines should modernize its armed force NOW!!!

WHILE Vietnam and our other neighbors are upgrading their navies with new submarines and fast attack missile ships, the current Aquino administration continues to downgrade the capability of our armed forces to defend our nation from external threats.

Ang Pagbabalik ng People’s Eye
