Bubbles [Photo Hunt]

"Words are mere bubbles of water, but deeds are drops of gold."
~ Chinese proverb


The new president and vice-president were proclaimed by Congress the other day. People from different sectors are expecting the newly elected leaders to fulfill their promises of reforms and seriously address the issues of corruption that hounded the Arroyo administration. Noynoy Aquino promised "change" while on the campaign trail---I hope he would back it up with actions as soon as he assumes office.


Happy 112th Independence Day, Philippines!

Arroyo should have learned from the Japanese misniter who resigned because he wasn't able to do his plot...oh man, delicadeza where art thou?

Here's hoping his bubbles won't pop!

I love this photo. And, the quote is great. I may use it sometime.

Marta said...

That is a very unique picture. You've taken something that might be considered rather ordinary and turned it into art. I also like the rainbow effect.

Everyone's keeping an eye on Noynoy, even the non-Filipinos here in the UAE.

PS. Nice new template. =)

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi! Sorry for my late visit. That's a nice photo.

I'm hopeful for our new leaders.

Gledwood said...

What a beautiful photo!

Who are the Philippines celebrating independence from? Weren't you colonized by America at some point?... And by Spain before that..?

All I know is that lots of Philipinos (is that the right word?) seem to speak with broad American accents, whereas many Asians from the South-East and East seem to speak British English (and yet to write with American spellings!)

Luna Miranda said...

hi, Gledwood! We were celebrating independence from 377 years of Spanish colonial rule. Yes, we were also colonized by America for 48 years. There was even a 2-year British occupation in the 17th century.

Citizens of the Philippines are called Filipinos. I'm not sure about American accents--those who probably lived in the US at some point speak with an American accent, or call center agents who have been assigned to handle US accounts.:p
