August 30 2012 Marcelo Del Pilar Day Holiday in Bulacan

The province of Bulacan will have two local holidays within the next two weeks: Marcelo H. Del Pilar Day on August 30 and the Araw ng mga Barangay on September 11. The two aforementioned dates are listed as annual provincial holidays in Bulacan’s Administrative Code, which was signed by then-Governor Josefina Dela Cruz back in 2007.

Born in August 30, 1850, Marcelo H. Del Pilar is considered as one of the pillars of the reform movement during the last two decades of Spanish colonization of the Philippines. Del Pilar used the pen name Plaridel, and his colleagues in the revolutionary newspaper La Solidaridad include Graciano Lopez-Jaena and Jose Rizal. Del Pilar is Bulacan’s provincial hero.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!|

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
