A house is a home

“Home is where the heart is,” they say. True, it is be­cause home is where peo­ple live and feel a sense of be­long­ing­ness.

Filipinos can at­test to that. Pi­noys value home and fam­ily over any­thing in this world. We are well- known for our close fam­ily ties, which are not gen­er­ally ob­served or prac­ticed by other cul­tures.

This year, the Sun. Star Cebu Year­book Video Con­test cen­tered on those val­ues. With the theme “Is Your House A Home?”, par­tic­i­pants should be able to tell the world why their house is a home.

The video en­try of John Lindsey Banaynal en­ti­tled “A House is a Home” cap­tured scenes of his neigh­bors in Mam­bal­ing, Cebu City show­ing the es­sen­tial el­e­ments of what makes a house – no mat­ter the di­men­sions or struc­ture – a home, and won for him this year’s gold award and the $ 500 cash prize that comes with it.

The win­ning en­try cen­tered on the con­cept that a house is not a home if there’s no one liv­ing in it.

The three- minute video shows that a house is a home where peo­ple can be them­selves and have pri­vacy. It is where you can en­joy do­ing your fa­vorite pas­time and have a spe­cial bond­ing with your fam­ily and loved ones.

Banaynal, who works as a mul­ti­me­dia/ graphic artist, joined Sun. Star’s video con­test only for the first time this year.
