Happy FILIPINO AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH! πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

October was chosen to be the Filipino American History Month because it was in the month of October on the 18th day in 1587 when the first Filipinos, referred to in history as Luzones Indios, made landfall in an area researchers currently believe to be south of Morro Bay. To memorialize this historic event, the Filipino American Historical Society has placed a commemorative plaque on a large boulder in Coleman Park near the famous landmark the Morro Rock.

The NEW House of the Philippines weekly construction update, Friday, September 25, 2020.

You can see Rom testing the stability of the building. It didn’t move so I guess it is okay. πŸ˜„ Then we had a bunch of people climb on the roof, they danced the hip-hop and it did not cave in. So that’s a thumbs up! πŸ‘πŸ½ No work was done inside the house this past week but roof tile installation started and should be finished next week.

The NEW House of the Philippines weekly construction update, Friday, September 18, 2020.

Missed a couple of weekly updates but, HERE’S THE LATEST!

Something that you cannot see in these photos are the work on plumbing, mechanical and electrical that was completed in this phase and passed the city inspectors’ scrutiny. On the roof you can see that roof tiles are stacked and will be laid out this coming week. Our four-leaf doors dubbed as the most beautiful doors in the International Cottages are being delivered next week.

Till next week. MABUHAY!
