Filipino is worth dying for…

I was recently invited to a flag hoisting ceremony at the “Ang bahay” , Philippine Ambassador residence in New Zealand In celebration of  114th Anniversary of  proclamation of Philippine Independence Day.

It was a early morning ceremony , headed by Philippine Ambassador to New Zealand Ambassador  Virginia H. Benavidez with other Filipino Organization leaders.

After the Flag Ceremony, Ambassador Benavidez address the crowed with a independence message and welcoming the guest to the Ambassador Residence.

Then, Atty Giovanni Palec, Embassy Charge de Affairs read the Independence Message of Philippine President  Benigno Aquino III while  Consul General  Marcos Punsalang read the message from DFA secretary Alberto del Rosario.

On the other hand, I was also invited to a separate celebration  from the Filipino Chaplaincy Pastoral Council held  Lower Hutt. 

The program was started with a parade of colours and a Thanksgiving mass headed by Father Alberto dela Cruz. After the Mass, the organizers prepared a simple cultural show  and hosted by our friend Maria Ruteza Bautista and Anaissa Belenoga.

I had an amazing time. But I didn’t finished the program because I need to send the video clips to my newsdesk at  GMA 7 in time for Philippine Independence Celebration  back home. Below is a short clip showed at 24 Oras news program.
