Philippines, my Philippines – Past Meets Present

Philippines, my Philippines
I’ve known you for years
You gave me fond memories
Of my childhood and early days
I left you when I was 23
To see the other side of the world
It doesn’t matter how far I reached
I’ll always be coming back to you
To admire your beauty and warmth
To see our diverse 7,100 islands
It’s more fun in the Philippines
There’s no place like home!

For: December ‘Past Meets Present‘


  1. Halo-halo and beautiful beaches…. can’t get any better than that.

    Though hearing the song of “Bayan Ko” invokes the sentiment of struggle and unrest, which still rings true up to this day.

  2. oh wow . . . what lovely memories these photographs must bring. And what a stunning country. A friend has just returned from a short trip and has shared how amazing it is. Maybe one of these days . . . for now though I’ll enjoy via you 🙂
