Salamat [Thank You!]

If you're a Filipino, staying in the country, consider yourself lucky to be living at this time of the year. You lived through the devastation caused by Typhoon Ondoy/Ketsana, you're not among those who traveled to Maguindanao who were greeted with excessive fireworks, and had endured another year of seemingly endless reign of unbelievable political machinations from all sides.

Can't help it if you feel much better had you been among the victims but [it's not just a matter of perspective] in no other time had we been showered with equal blessing on the world stage. Yes, our small and tiny country.

Not once but twice. What makes it even special is that they were not borne out of privileged Pinoy existence. Humble origins, much like the majority of kababayans.

Efren and Manny.

You can never say enough about them and what they accomplished. I'm sure I'll be regaling kids with tales that happened in 2009.

And even better, it won't be just us in the usual tambayans, but in every bit, those living in all parts of the world, who had read about them or seen them, too.
