Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day


June 27, 2008


Photo Shot at exactly 17:00


This is our University Chapel at De La Salle University - Dasmariñas. Our Patron Saint is the La Naval. It is Located at the University Colonial Plaza Together with the Aklatang Emilio Aguinaldo (Emilio Aguinaldo LIbrary) on its left and on the right, Museo de La Salle (De La Salle Museum). Though it didn't rain, the weather was cool and fair. By the way, to those wondering how big is my University, it is 27 Hectares. Second biggest LaSallian Institution after DLSU - Canlubang. If ever you liked my DLSU-D Series and wish to continue it, just leave a comment on this post so that I may share the beauty of my Green University.

Today, we celebrate at our University the Philippine - Spanish Friendship Day. Though we have been colonized by Spain for 333 years, at present time, Philippines and Spain are one of the very strong relationships that our country has not just because of words but the culture that the two countries share. Viva España y Viva Filipinas!

Interesting sky you have there. The clouds are very bumpy and very bunched together. The sun behind them makes a very intense glare. I like this combination.

Again another dramatic image. Great work on the angle. Yes if you're ok to include more historical refs. then that's fine by me. Alwasy an interesting anyway so 'm sure you'll do it justice.

I didn't even know we have the Spanish Friendship day...after 333 years of being under Spanish Regime, well we manage to become friends somehow... =D

Still the rainy season ha, the clouds seem getting ready to pour down water. you know if our place there gets flooded, it will be an unfortunate incident coz we live high up on a hill lol...lapit sa Tagaytay.

That first shot is simply lovely.

Hilda said...

Parang ang sarap naman na outing yan today. Have fun, Steven! At oo, ituloy mo yung pics ng campus niyo—ang ganda 'no. And I have to admit, I didn't even know we had a Philippine-Spanish friendship day. I think I should walk around where the students and faculty are more often. I probably just missed the announcement. ;)

Beautiful photo for your Sky Watch. I've read a little bit of your other blog posts; you have an interesting site. I like the historical/background information you share here, also.

Wishing you quickly improved health.

philippine-spanish friendship day simply shows that we are aready in good terms after the bad effects of the spanish era. we get to learn to see on what's good and learn from the past experience.

in many ways, i can thank the spain for the churches built in the country.
