81st AFP Founding Anniversary Static and Kinetic Display and Mini-Concert

There are so many events and activities since beginning of the month. The first I went to, for GameOPS, was the AKB48 Team 8 performance in Manila as part of the ’60 Years of Philippines-Japan Friendship Celebration.’ Though I watch Japanese series and movies and read manga, I was never a big fan of JPop. I did enjoy the performance though especially seeing their fans cheer them on. On that same day, was the (second day of) 81st AFP Founding Anniversary Static and Kinetic Display and Mini-Concert. The boyfriend and I even wondered why there were many soldiers near the BGC bus terminal.

I got more excited with AFP’s event because of the tanks exhibit and they let onlookers try on military uniforms and pose with guns.

More cool than a photo booth, right? πŸ˜€ We had no idea what their event was until I searched it on Google when I got home.

There were too many people by the tanks, so I couldn’t get a decent photo of those. The armed forces’ history and accomplishments were on display too, which I didn’t check. It was difficult to read with dim streetlights.

If my legs weren’t exhausted, I would have tried all the military branches’ uniforms.
