This year in the homeland, government decreed June 9, not June 12, a holiday for Philippine Independence. In both the Middle East and New York, OFWs celebrated on the first week of June. In California, different festivities in San Diego and San Francisco were held June 8-9 and 13. In Bangkok, the United Filipinos in Thailand celebrated in our embassy on June 15. In New Jersey, they’re rocking indie day with Mig Ayesa on June 29. Do we now tweak Jose Rizal to “El sitio ni fecha, nada importa (neither place nor date matters)”?
