Last October 25, 2010, Barangay Election was held in the Philippines. Each Barangay has candidates for barangay captains and barangay councilors. I witnessed the barangay election at Barangay Rosario, Lingayen, Pangasinan. Barangay Rosario is one of the barangays in the Philippines. I took a picture of the voters waiting for their turn to vote. Here’s the picture:

Last May 09, 2010, I woke up early in the morning. I left my boarding house in Brgy. Highway Hills and I went to Cubao, Quezon City. I rode in a bus going to Alaminos, Pangasinan and Bolinao, Pangasinan. The bus left Cubao at exactly 9:30AM. When the bus stopped at Socony, Bugallon, Pangasinan, I got out of the bus. My father was waiting for me in Socony. I rode in my father’s motorcycle and he took me home and we arrived at 2:00PM .
When I arrived home, my mother was very happy. She hugged and kissed me. She really loves me so much. From 3PM until 6PM, my father and I had a long conversation. We covered different topics but our major topic is all about business. He has many businesses in mind but he could not start it for lack of capital. He expects me to help. I told him that we could be business partners. He also asked to renovate our house. I agreed to what he suggested. For now, I’m doing my best to help my parents. I want them to be happy while they’re alive. I know that they’ll not live in this world forever. So while they’re alive, I am doing my best to make them happy. Doing the things that they’ve never experienced before. I want to show them my love and respect.
We slept early on May 09, 2010.
On May 10, 2010, I woke up early in the morning. It’s the time to vote. My father and I went to Rosario Elementary School in Barangay Rosario, Lingayen, Pangasinan. It’s the first automated election in the Philippines. We arrived in the school at 6:50AM. We expected that voting will start at 7AM. However, the election started at 7:40AM due to PCOS (Precinct Count Optical Scan) machine problem. I was able to vote at 10:30AM because senior citizens were prioritized.
When I was born in this world, I met my father. He’s the one who gave me a name. He wanted us to have the same name so my name Ben Millionaire was registered.
When I was in grade 1, I was struggling to write my long name but I thanked him for I know that giving me a name same with his name shows that he loves me so much. I can’t forget the time when he was teaching me the basic math operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) when I was in grade 1. I learned a lot from my father.
It’s election in the Philippines today May 10, 2010.
