Pino Pinoy

sign of Pino Resto-Bar I first posted photos of Pino Resto-Bar back in 2008 when it was new. It's still around, and has even moved to a bigger place—and still in the neighborhood, thankfully. After all these years, though, it was only yesterday that I noticed that the asterisk separating "resto" from "bar" in their logo is actually the 8-rayed sun of the Philippine flag.

Every once in awhile I am surprised by something I've looked at for a long time but never really seen.

In fact, a cat walked across my foot the other day. I asked my wife, "Where'd that cat come from?"

She was busy cooking supper but said, sarcastically (thinking I was kidding), "Oh, I don't know. It's been hanging around here for five years."

I said, "I'll be darned" under my breath. I didn't know we had a cat! I thought we had a dog that had run away.

It's interesting how we can look and not see. Happens to me a lot.

Ha! What a clever way of introducing a touch of nationalism to their sign Hilda!

A sun is much better than a simple dot, very clever.
