Manila: Castilian Memoirs 1930s

Ever wondered how the Philippines looked like way back during the early years of our statehood? Above is a video showcasing the 1930s when the Commonwealth of the Philippines was born under the might and power of the United States of America. The developments in 1930s Manila would have cemented the preeminence of our capital over all other Asian capital cities. But as World War II came into Pacific, 10 years later, Manila became the most destroyed capital in the world, second only to Warsaw, Poland. The task of rebuilding the glory of the capital continues to this day.

The painting, also known as España Guiando a Filipinas (“Spain Leading the Philippines”), is regarded as one of the “enduring pieces of legacy” that the Filipinos inherited from Luna. The painting is a centerpiece art at the Luna Hall of the Lopez Memorial Museum.

EveryJuan, a hero: When blogger Jay Jaboneta learned about the daily plight of around 200 young children in Zamboanga who have to SWIM half a mile everyday just to get to school, he knew he had to help out somehow. Using Facebook as a simple platform, he encouraged his friends to pitch in the effort, and a few days later, support for their small campaign snowballed, eventually raising P70,000 in funds.
Today, the young children from Layag-Layag, Zamboanga no longer have to struggle daily to keep their bags and school uniforms above their heads to prevent these from getting wet. Their new school boat, named Bagong Pag-Asa or New Hope, brings them safely to their destination.
Watch the story here.
Everyday, thousands of Filipino children have to face arduous treks through mountains, jungles and rivers just to get a taste of education. And, everyday a number of ordinary, but impassioned Filipinos, try to make a difference: showcasing modern-day heroism is well within everyone’s capacity.

Ang Kwento ng Gamugamo
Tinuruan si Jose ni Donya Teodora na bumasa sa wikang Kastila. Isang gabi binigyan niya si Jose ng isang aklat, EL AMIGO DE LOS NINOS. Sa Tagalog ang ibig sabihin nito ay “ANG KAIBIGAN NG MGA BATA”…
Pagkatapos ng kuwento ni Donya Teodora, tinanong niya si Jose. ” Alam mo ba ang nangyari sa munting gamugamong hindi sumunod sa kanyang ina? Ang mga batang hindi sumusunod sa kanilang mga magulang ay makakatulad din ng batang gamugamo. Hindi naniwala si Jose sa paalaala ng Nanay niya, para sa kanya , maganda ang ningas ng ilaw. Ang ningas na iyon ay kumakatawan sa isang mithiin sa buhay. Isang karangalan para kanino mang tao ang mamatay para sa kanyang mithiin katulad ng munting gamugamo. At gaya ng batang gamugamo siya ay nakatakdang mamatay na martir para sa isang dakilang mithiin.

The Pride of the Malay race: Gat Jose Rizal
A true polymath or renaissance man, our national hero, Pepe, was an ophthalmologist, sculptor, painter, educator, farmer, historian, playwright and journalist. He is also noted for his work in architecture, cartography, economics, ethnology, anthropology, sociology, dramatics, not to mention his fancy for martial arts, fencing and pistol shooting.* Along with his work as a literary genius, the achievements of his short life is a true source of inspiration for the Filipino nation, and a reminder of what a global Pinoy can do.

Itaas ang iyong Malinis na nooSa araw na ito,Kabataang Pilipino!Igilas mo na rin ang kumikinang mongMayamang sanghayaMagandang pag-asa ng Bayan kong Mutya!

excerpt from the poem, A La Juventad Filipina, written by an 18-year old Jose Rizal to his fellow youth, calling the native indios, “Pilipino” for the first time.

Itaas ang iyong 
Malinis na noo
Sa araw na ito,
Kabataang Pilipino!
Igilas mo na rin ang kumikinang mong
Mayamang sanghaya
Magandang pag-asa ng Bayan kong Mutya!
