"What's up Miss Mindy? Since it is the death anniversary of the late beloved President Corazon Aquino, I would like to know the origin of the term “Cory Magic,” which is believed to have sparked the EDSA revolution.-Andi"

Hi Andi! I'm doing fine here at Wikipilipinas. Regarding your question, Father Catalino Arevalo of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines described Corazon Aquino as having a “will of steel” in calling for civil disobedience against the Marcos administration, but nonetheless displayed no “fuzz, fret or fury” when she led the EDSA People Power revolt. These remarkable characteristics of Tita Cory are believed to have inspired the people to topple the Marcos regime—thus, the term “Cory Magic.” You may read this to know more about her legacy. \m/

Tsinelas.jpg

The Tsinelas (slippers), which was derived from the Spanish word chinela, is a light low-cut footwear that can be easily slipped onto the foot. It has a very simple design consisting of a flexible sole and a Y-shaped hold-strap strategically placed in order to bind the slipper to the foot. It is considered a necessity by most Filipinos and has been incorporated in the standard inventory of every household, regardless of their social and economic class. Though traditionally made from abaca or katad (leather), modern tsinelas are now made out of rubber, fabric, synthetic resin, and other materials.
