Finally, I have found postcards in the bookstore with the best prints of the 15 Presidents of the Republic of the Philippines. What I like most from the prints is the famous documented signature of each of the President. So for today, allow me to introduce to you the 13 great men and 2 women who led the Philippines from past to present.
Today, I’m posting about the new cards I bought yesterday from the new bookstore I’ve found in our city. These cards will be added to my collection, but I also bought some extra copies of each card so I can have something to swap with my regular swapper-friends.
Famous Chocolate Hills in Bohol province
The tunnels in Corregidor Island. It reminds a dark past of the country during the war in 1940s.
San Juanico Bridge joining two islands in Samar-Leyte. It was a project of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos. It’s the longest bridge in the country and been there for so many years.
Mount Apo, the highest peak in the Philippines
Mount Mayon has the perfect cone shape among all volcanoes in the Philippines. It’s an active volcano as well.
The old gate in Intramuros Manila
If you like to go to Baguio City, be prepared for this zigzag road in the mountains.
Hi guys! It’s past 11 in the evening here in my country, the Philippines. I know a lot of you right now are currently enjoying the daytime while some here in Asia are already in their deep slumber. Well others are nocturnals. Oh yeah, let’s talk about nocturnalism. I’m a nocturnal person. Due to some online work calls, I stay awake at night.
I bought some postcards today in replacement of the cards I’ve sent. One of the cards that amazed me is the Philippine eagle-owl.
It looks like an eagle, but it’s not. This looks sweeter than the eagle I guess. An eagle is wild while the owl seemed to be harmless. Being nocturnal, the owl is awake at night to look for its prey. Its scientific name is Bubo philippensis. When I was younger, around 5-10 years old, I oftentimes saw owls on the big acacia trees in our backyard. Unfortunately, the big trees were long been gone now and I can’t also see the owls anymore.
Our oldies usually associate the owls to the mythical creatures like vampires. They said the owls bring no luck to you when you see one, but I never believed. Owls are beautiful birds. In fact, I had a photo before at the zoo holding an owl. Just like any nocturnal organisms, the owls also help in the balance of the ecosystem.
