The Philippines Government should display them on the Museum to show to Filipino people that having too many shoes doesn't keep you alive . I know some people would say it was a waste of money, nut it's people's faults why they give Mrs. Marcos a present of shoes. I think I believe that those shoes are not all from the corrupt money. Filipino love to give a gift and Imelda Marcos love to keep and collect. It's her passion but I don't think it was from people's money. I know someone who's not rich but she kept all her baby shoes when she was a baby till now. Imelda Marcos is a caring person and he love to care shoes. I know some people love and enjoy keeping too many kinds of underwear as a collection. I know too many people enjoy collecting all kinds of stamps around the world even if she's not rich. I know people love to collect all kinds of coins or money around the world. I know of people who enjoys collecting all kinds of rocks . I know of people enjoy collecting of all kinds of human teeth . Some people collect all kinds of cigaret astray around the world. I think the Philippine government should place them on the Museum and show it all to Filipino people. Besides. it's good for Shoe Business. I think Imelda Marcos love and enjoy keeping things from people who gave her all kinds of present. That's how she kept memory from her friends. Shoes. Yes, it's been neglected because of too much hatred .

My wife accumulated approximately 1000 shoes in our 20 years marriage. How much more does a First Lady could accumulate in addition to gifts from friends and others?

The opposition, which comprised the Filipino elites, exaggerated everything about the Marcoses to discredit them. The opposition made a lot of noise paying the poor to rally and protest against the government.

The opposition cannot wait for their turn to sit in the government.

Or Or, if the Malacanang Palave don't like the shoes, then give it to Marikina Shoe Factory and fix or restore them and sell them and the money should give it too poor people or send it to Ilocos , to the Marcos Family and they can take care of them rather than being neglected.

I only have 3 kinds of shoes, one for summer, one for winter and one for spring. I only buy when it's broken. I know, I know, I know, I'm being frugal. I only buy when it's on sale and the price range below 15 dollars(on sale only). I know I know I know I'm being cheap. It's alright.

Of course people, if I'm the President's wife, I must wear a nice dress, nice shoes, good manners, good values, nice people, nice food, nice house and nice for everything. I only become a first lady once so . So everything's perfect.

Well, I know that Filipinos are generous people, poor or rich. People who lives in the farm, they give Fruits, vegetables, or lives stocks as a gift to a friends . They even give Cows, carabaos, goats and chicken.

My relatives told me that in the old days people give all kinds of lives stocks as a gift. After the School graduation from all over Philippines, they said that parents give Chicken, horse, pigs, goats, rice fruits to a teacher to thank them for teaching their kids well.

When there's birthdays, Filipino people give livestock as a present.

Every household have livestock, farms vegetables, yard vegetables, every houses has fruit treesm all kinds of plants around their backyards or their land. They never had a refrigerator because there were no electricity and they always have fresh food from the garden.

Now my relatives said that these new modern generations people are always hungry because all their money goes to cell phone, computer, cars, decorative stuff around the house, television,. That's why people are hungry. The land converted to car racing and bicycle racing instead of planting all kinds of crops.

In new modern generation, people are disconnected to each other. Instead of having someone to help in the house, or having a friend over, they have do or pets and spend money for the pets food instead of human beings. The reason why we ran -out of food because the population in the world is so high that it could not meet the needs of the people. It's not only the people are over populated but also, the animals, like dogs, rabbits, squirrel, birds,
etc because of human beings. They bought a pts and take them home as their pets. Animals behave very badly because of human beings. Bears, snakes, crocodiles, would go to the houses because human beings destroyed the insects and animals habitats like trees, rivers, oceans etc.
