Your friendly neighborhood pambansang blogger is such a sucker for "throwbacks" and historically significant events so these activities lined up this last week of November would be a sure hit for me. This will also make the young ones appreciate the good old days when the Internet has not yet conquered the lifestyle of many individuals. Nowadays when smartphones, social media and apps ruled the past time of many, it is such a wonderful sight seeing the youth experience how it was during the past.
