Senior citizens are indeed deemed treasures of our society for they have continuously shared their unconditional love and care for us. Throughout our lives, they have gone through great lengths to bring us to where we are today. Their wealth of experience and knowledge taught us valuable life lessons that guide us to become wiser, happier and more passionate human beings.
As a tradition over the years, Filipino-Chinese communities from different parts of the country gathered to celebrate the annual feast of the Chinese deity, Ma-Cho (Ma-Tzu), last September 25, 2017.
