On June 12, 1898, General Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed the "freedom" of the Philippines from the cruelty of Spaniards. The first dictator of the country did not know that Americans, Japanese and Lady Gaga will be coming soon to rape the country.

And came Jose P. Rizal who had tens of women and dozens of masterpieces. Many are questioning his status as "the national hero". Some wanted Andres Bonifacio to take the top spot, because they believe unsystematic planning is better than a scientific one.

And came General Douglas MacArthur who is a hero to every Filipino for saying “I Shall Return”. In South Korea, the American general also is considered a great savior.

And came Jose P. Laurel who is known today as a “puppet president”.

And came Ferdinand Marcos who made the Philippines a leading country in Asia.Unfortunately, Marcos is more known today as the worst president due to his Martial Law regime. His charming wife Imelda Marcos attempted to change the name of the country to “Maharlika”, which means “big penis”.



And came Corazon Aquino who according to many never gave an ambush interview because she needed tens of scriptwriters for her speeches.

And came Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who is more known of her height and a mole on her face. She will be remembered for transferring holidays to the nearest Monday of the original holiday schedules, to provide a longer weekend for everybody.  

And came Benigno Aquino who changed his surname from fishy Cojuanco to Simeon.

After decades, former President Manuel Quezon’s principle “it is better to see the Philippines being run by Filipinos like hell, that to see the Philippines being run by Americans like heaven”.


Then came the Department of Tourism saying “it is more fun in the Philippines”.

ALERT: Even Google is celebrating with the Philippines today.

FYI: "Philippines" is based from King Philip of Spain. Not from Phillip Phillips :) Makes sense?
