February 3 2013 Blas Ople day in Bulacan

Bulacan will mark the 87th birth anniversary of its favorite son, the late Senator Blas F. Ople, this February 3. The day, which this year falls on a Sunday, is one of the legal holidays in Bulacan as listed in its Provincial Administrative Code.

This special non-working holiday comes merely 11 days after Bulacan marked the 114th anniversary of the inauguration of the First Philippine Republic last January 23. Ople was the country’s foreign affairs secretary at the time of his death in December 14, 2003. He served as labor minister during the administration of Ferdinand Marcos and as Senate President from 1999 to 2000.

    but the art style and dedication Nintendo gave the is staggering.
    The level of detail and dedication they put into Super Mario Galaxy 2 is
    amazing. Note: the above Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind
