Dinia, Yolly and Pea at the Tribute to the Soldiers Exhibit


Note from Pea (PAY-ya): The photo attached was taken this morning during the opening of the Tribute to Soldiers exhibit at the city hall grounds, with the Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff as the guest of honor. He is originally from this city and so the mayor thought it a befitting tribute to him to have the exhibit here. There were all sorts of military paraphernalia on display, rescue vehicles ( a lot of armored personnel carriers!!), and even the police dogs (I can't seem to recall the correct phrase being used for these animals) were there. The public can go inside the tanks and the soldiers give them a ride!! Awesome!! They say it's airconditioned, would you believe it??!! I wonder if they turn the airconditioner when they go to war? I think I'll get myself a ride tomorrow. Anyway, there were soldiers everywhere (very cute ones, really, but very young, ha ha). A friend of mine called me early on and asked if we are having a coup d'etat at the city hall grounds!!! LOL!! Well, it was rather festive the whole day, and the exhibit will run till the end of the week. Maybe i will try and take more pictures tomorrow and the next days. Pea

Note from Mary: A number of you have asked why I keep saying YEBA. Yeba is the Filipino word for YAY. It was taught to me by my friend Pea (Pay-ya), the woman on the right in this picture. From right to left, Pea, Yolly and Dinia. Mary Posted by Picasa

I asked Pea to translate the Tagalog comment so I could understand what it said, and this is what she wrote:

Hi, Mary, well, this is the best I can come up with translating the Tagalog comment for you. LOIDA, is actually Yolly's first cousin, and BAYANI (which is the Tagalog word for hero, and we use that as a name here) is Loida's husband. Bayani used to be a co-worker of ours here at the Marikina City Hall for some time, before they got married and before he migrated to Canada


WOW!!! I thought I was seeing movie stars standing beside that military tank! So beautiful and sexy....( the tank is sexier than you though) Ha ha, just kidding!! So how are the beauty queens of the Assessor's Office doing?? Say hello to everyone. Marikina is really a very beautiful place!! LONG LIVE MARIKINA!!!

Oh, and by the way, this is HERO (BAYANI) and LOIDA. Dinia, say hello to your mother (NINANG SITANG) and to all your sisters, and your kids as well . AND HELLO TO ALL THE EMPLOYEES OF THE CITY GOVERNMENT OF MARIKINA (if they still remember me, he he he.
