Prouder To Be A Filipino

I'm happy that I was able to vote. It was my first time to exercise my right as a Filipino citizen to choose who I think is the best leader for my country. Doesn't matter if the person I voted for would end up dead last in the polls, what's important is I was able to express my right to choose the best leader for my country. This is democracy at work and am thankful that the Philippines is a democratic country, no matter how immature our democracy is.

Though the poll precint was a pandemonium at best, it was the importance of the event that made things more comfortable for me. My black Giordano shirt was forming salt circles because of the heat. I felt almost like fainting at one time. I was uncomfortable, I was sweating like there ain't no sweating anymore for the rest of my life.

It was my right as a Filipino to elect my rightful leaders. For me, it was Gilbert Teodoro. Though the surveys have been largely against him, I'm still proud that a person like him chanced on becoming the country's president.

My indelible ink is cool. It is the coolest way to get inked!

Mabuhay tayong lahat!

come to think of it, we voted for the same person...tsk tsk tsk...too bad the filipino people is still on mass-hysteria. oh well, noy isn't that bad...as a matter of fact he's the lesser-evil among the rest. i enjoyed reading your thoughts---good for you jek! (i know how much you hated being called 'jek', i'm always tempted to do so all the time- peace!).
