To all Filipinos and friends based overseas, books of condolences have been opened at all Philippine embassies and consulates general to allow foreign friends and Filipinos overseas to pay their respect to President Corazon Aquino. The books will remain available for signing until Aug 10, 2009 (Aug 9 in Sing).Today, we made our way to the Philippine Embassy at 20 Nassim Road.
Behind the books of condolences is a picture and printed profile of President Aquino. Funny tidbit: note that the picture on the table was downloaded from pep.ph. It turns out that soft copies of the official portrait had not yet been dessiminated to the various embassies. Since the Philippine embassy in Singapore is open on Saturdays & Sundays, this was the clearest picture that they could find on the web at the time. =)
Members of the diplomatic corps have also signed in the books:
