Her Excellency, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, just delivered her SONA (State of the Nation Address) earlier today in a joint session of Congress of the Republic of the Philippines at the Batasang Pambansa Complex in Quezon City.

The main highlight of her speech was her accomplishments in the past year, and her plans of sustained economic growth, development (massive physical infrastructure projects, enhancement of social infrastructures, and an environment of peace), and her legacy to the Filipino people.

Here are some pictures from Congress:

I was just a few feet away from the President. As you can see, the PSG is just blocking me from her.
