Ako ay Pinoy (I am a Filipino)
Message is being a proud Filipino and deeply loving your country, the Philippines. One of the famous line of the song is the part where Jose Rizal, the national hero of the Philippines, was mentioned saying "Ang hindi raw magmahal sa sariling wika ay higit ang amoy sa mabahong isda". Traslated to "The ones who don't love their own language is worse than a stinking fish". 

Isang Mundo Isang Awit (One World, One Song)
This song is loving each other translating the phrase,  "I love you" in different languages. And exclaiming that the only solution to this crazy world is LOVE.

Piliin mo ang Pilipinas. It consists of 5 native dances from the different islands of the Philippines
Banga. The tribal women from the north, dancing with clay pot on their heads. It is used to carry  harvest.
Maria Clara. It is a Spanish influenced dance. The women from the Manila area dressed in long flowing dresses. Dancing with their fans to show their elegant and graceful movements.
Tivoli. The tribal bird act. Children and women mimicking the powerful birds flying in the forest.
Tinikling. Said to be named after a long legged bird called the tikling in the Philippines. The dance depicts the movements of the bird as it hops between the blade of grass, tree branches, and dodging bamboo traps laid by the farmers. It is the National Dance of the Philippines
