I have lived here in Cagayan de Oro ever since I was born. For the past 17 years, I have seen lots of improvements and downsides of the city. I have my own opinions, good and bad, about my city. Before April 2011, I saw Cagayan de Oro as a ‘clean’ city. Of course, I

This is my take in the letter of Jaeyoun Kim which I posted (https://ohamerl.wordpress.com/2012/11/29/my-short-essay-about-the-philippines-by-jaeyoun-kim/). Love the Philippines. It´s easy to say “Mahal ko ang Pilipinas” (I love the Philippines). Whenever someone brings home the glory to the country even if it’s from boxing or a math olympiad, we can see comments like these.
