Reminiscing 2004

Let us make a collage of the top events, be it local or international, that made 2004.

Let us start with the events of the not-so-distant past:

1. The FPJ story (foray to the presidential derby, subsequent defeat, and demise that shook the nation)
2. The financial crisis
3. The wrath of nature in the East Side (Real and Infanta in Quezon and in Aurora)
4. The Angelo Dela Cruz hostage drama and the subsequent withdrawal of the RP troops that angered the US masters in the Coalition of the Willing.

Feel free to add more. :)
