Happy New Year to all my followers old and new !!
This is my second New Year’s with you all and 2013 has been full of memories with all of you from learning new things, personal growth, decolonization, and spreading awareness of our rich heritage and history.
As 2014 begins and Pinoy-Culture nears its 2nd Anniversary in March since the blog opened back in 2012, I hope the blog will continue to help other Pilipin@s in the diaspora to learn more about their rich history, culture, and the islands that make up our motherland, the Philippines.
