June is here!

The month of June is here! June is the 6th month of the year. I personally remember the month of June because of 3 events that usually happens during this month.

First is going back to school for many Filipino kids, young and old. Education is for everyone. But now that tuition fees increases and because of economic crisis that we are encountering today, only a few can manage to go back to school. It really saddens me when a person has the motivation and enthusiasm to go to school but because of financial problem and financial stability, they can no longer attend school. Yes, there are scholarships that they can take advantage. But today, I seldom hear scholarships because only a few now gives them to those who are eligible. Even college plans are no longer being heard. As economic crisis burdens our country, many will try to look for work in order to survive instead of going to school. My heart really saddens when I see on the television children that are no longer going to school but wants to go to school but cannot due to financial problem. I wonder, what happened to the "pay now, study later" program. I no longer hear that too.

Second, when the month of June comes, June brides rings a bell! Many are planning to have their wedding to take place in the month of June. Hmmm.. I wonder why =)

Before wedlock, the couple needs to attend a seminar to know more about the life of married couple and to also ask themselves if they are really ready to tie the knot. Wedding is also like fiesta where in you need to prepare, really prepare for your guests. There are a lot of things to consider and preparation for a wedding. Of course, the wedding gown and the suit of the groom, the sponsors, brides maid, best man, flower girls and many more. The couple must list things to do in order not to forget even the little detail. Little details still is important in a wedding. And also, wedding now a days is very expensive. If you are planning to have a simple wedding with only family and relatives as your guests that will still cost the couple. I have no idea how much exactly will the wedding and reception will cost but whether it is simple or not, it is still expensive. By the way, if you do not wish to go through the hassle of planning your own wedding just hire a wedding coordinator. Just tell them your concept and what you would like to have for your wedding and they will arrange it for you. Best Wishes to those who are set to have a wedding this June!

And lastly, I remember the Philippine Independence Day... The day that I wish I was there when the Philippine Flag was raised as a sign of freedom and celebration of the Filipino people. Isn't it amazing to be a part of an historical event?

I wonder what do the children of today thinks about the Philippine Independence Day. Just a bit of facts, on June 12, 1898, prior to the formal conclusion of the Spanish-American war, Filipino revolutionary forces under General Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed the sovereignty and independence of the Philippine Islands from the colonial rule of Spain. The declaration, however, was not recognized by the United States or Spain, and was not generally recognized by other nations. The Spanish government ceded the Philippines to the United States in the 1898 Treaty of Paris, in consideration for an indemnity for Spanish expenses and assets lost.It was really an independence for the Filipino people.

Those are the things that I remember when the month of June comes every year.
