Fun walking by the seaside

Bikurgurl 2017

Fun walking by the seaside
Lil’one carried by Papa
Lil’one had a lot of rides

Lil’one is our very own diva
Her wish is our command
Lil’one carried by Papa

Cool walking by the strand
Watching people passing by
Her wish is our command

Calm breeze and blue sky
We have just had fish and chips
Watching people passing by

Forgetting all the hardships
It’s good to be out of town
We have just had fish and chips

Watching puppets and clown
Fun walking by the seaside
It’s good to be out of town
Lil’one had a lot of rides*

Tuesday Photo Challenge – History


together we fight for freedom
together we overcome
we have to be free
colonisation from Spain
battle till the end
independence is worth it
for generations to come

enemies attack
warriors defend precious soil
battle of the sea
great ancestors of the land

courageous people
defending sea till the end
freedom protected
the fruit of their hardship

they fought for our freedom
learning the past through art
at the gallery

country’s history
as part of our heritage
should know them by heart


women took part, too
Philippine Revolution
our own heroines

acknowledging them
they struggle for our freedom
we’re so proud of them
