FSO- PLAZA

Spanish colonial rule brought Catholicism in the Philippines. Almost Filipinos use Spanish surnames. Not only that, we Filipinos adapted some Spanish words. Plaza is one of the Spanish terms we adapted and there’s actually a plaza in every town/district/city here in the Philippines.


I am so honored that I am the host this week's in FSO's theme "PLAZA".



This is the main city plaza in Iloilo. It is called Plaza Libertad


This is the District plaza of beautiful flowers.


This is the Caza Plaza where protest and rally happens.


Guimbal Plaza is the most clean plaza in Western Visayas


The plaza of San Joaquin


And this is my hometown plaza

Come with me, we will check the plaza of other countries.

Wow! Now I can see what plazas are really all about. They look to be a terrific asset to your towns.

I hope your protests marches are as peaceful as ours.

Do you celebrate lunar new year in the Philipines?

Talking about Spanish, I was just trying to learn new Spanish words last Friday night. It's much fun. Made me realize we're using too much Spanish words these days (which we think are influenced by the others or are actually very Tagalog).

nong nasa isang resto ako sa barcelona..di ko makita yung cr nila kaya nag tanong ako..di maintindihan nong pinagtanungan ko kung ano yung CR..di din alam ang toilete..ginamit ko na din ang bathroom...tapos naalala ko na marami tayong salita na ginagamit nila...tapos sabi ko banyo..ahahaha itinuro sa akin kung saan. Bagno nga lang ang spelling nila. Bihira sa kanila ang nakakaintindi ng english kaya di nila maintindihan ang CR at toilete...
