Happy Independence Day, Philippines

                    Jose Rizal statue in New Jersey

  And here at home, with our nation’s most famous drink.

Supermac, it's probably all part of the wonderful mish-mash that is our global village, but I am curious to know whether Fillipino's do the American 'hand on heart' thing as a sign of patriotism, or whether that's a 'you mish-mash global village' thing... ??

Happy Independence Day! x

I didn't know that the "heart on hand" gesture is an American tradition but yes, that's what we do when the national anthem is played. Thanks, Maxabella ;-)
