You know how digital cameras can be.... I took maybe 3 photos with flash then all the sudden the low battery light started flashing and the quality of the photos from then on were useless.
The section that inspired the most questions was WWII in the Philippines.... I had some old photos of bombed out Manila and such, a display of US and Japanese propaganda leaflets, guerrilla currency, etc. Both young and old, and all walks of life were very interested with that section.
The largest section was the Philippine Revolution/Fil/Am War..... that one inspired the most head-scratching, but surprising to me, very few questions or comments.
It was mostly the older Filipinos that kept returning to the display, reading and studying every item of the museum and giving me many nods of approval, but few comments. I had 3 white guys/ married to Filipinas who approached me, told me how great the idea was and offered me financial support to continue setting up at other Fil/Am events.... I later met up with each of these guys, one gave me his collection of Philippine coins and stamps, another gave me some really nice books and other information about Philippine history. ;D

Sorry OT ;D
Three Asian men were sitting together bragging about how they had set their new wives straight on their duties.
The first man had married a woman from China,
and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning that needed done at their house. He said that it took a couple days
but on the third day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were all washed and put away.
The second man had married a woman from Japan.
He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the cooking. He told them that the first day he didn't see any results,
but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table.
The third man had married a Filipina lady.
He boasted that he told her that her duties, among other things, were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything,
but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see well enough out of his left eye to do the dishes and the laundry; and he thought by next week he'd be able to drive, do the food shopping and dinner again and they live happily ever after. ;D
;D so true..... so true.... in order for a joke to be funny there must always be an element of truth in it.... I don't know any guys who claim to have a subserviant Filipina for a wife.... if they do then I wanna see documents proving that she is indeed a real Pinay.

It made me cry with laughter!! When courting, my Asawa assured me that a handful of rice & a few chicken wing would be enough. My little tools/junk rm is now her larder with sacks of assorted rice, 2 truck freezers (1 meat & 1 fish), giant pickleling jars Etc, etc! I must thank God every day for having her---& I do! In London the husbands of all her friends come from all over Europe & we all know our place. The very 1st time I met the family in Phil. was 2months after the wedding in London. She has & brothers & we commenced on the 1st crate of S.M's. I was asked if I would like to visit the bars & redlight spots of Angeles. "Koya Dave, go & ask our sister for the keys to the jeep". If I do I replied (Knowing my Asawa) she will reach for a knife & I shall return with a 'soprano' voice! pointing to what I would be minus. "Why don't one of you ask her, or your wife"? - Deadly silence. 2 crates later Koya Ray asks "Are we men or mice?" & storms into the house to get the keys. His wife, the smallest women of the lot, grabbed his ear & with a twist shouted " Drunkard! and marched off him off to bed. I looked around me to see all my remaining 6 macho bros, racing off into the dark! Men & Warriors all Know their place when married to an Asawa! God Bless-em!!
