GenSan Indigenous MapUp

August 9, 2013 – Before I start, let’s begin with a question. What is  Indigenous MapUp? So, in partnership with the National Congress of American Indians, and in honour of the United Nation’s International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, Google Map Maker, Google Earth Outreach and the Google American Indian Network are proud to present Google’s first ever Indigenous Mapping Day which was held yesterday, August 9, 2013.

Since, it was Eid al-Fitr yesterday.. My Aunt called me and she invited us to celebrate with them. To summarized it.. FOOOOOD, FOOD EVERYWHERE!  HOHOHOHO. I want to eat that durian float again.. :)). I arrived at STI College at around 1:30pm from Tupi, South Cotabato. GOOD THING IS I’M NOT LATE. 😀
