And when it comes to them, the crazier the better. Below, we compiled some of our favorite Filipino conspiracies. Some of them we grew up with, but the others are so crazy… could they be true? Former president Ferdinand Marcos is still alive It is said that former president Ferdinand Marcos is still alive and has had plastic surgery.
Happen what may, I shall die blessing her and desiring the dawn of her redemptions. His monuments, built as reminders of his heroism, stand distant and unreachable on his pedestal, as if deliberately exaggerating our insignificance.
It points to a strong-willed and supernatural character who consciously directs his abilities for the good of the people. The Filipino term bayanion the other hand, depicts the same values but is attributed to someone more grounded.
Coming from the Visayan term for warrior or bagani, one immediately finds a totally different perspective. This time, the persona serves others without expecting in return, despite being ordinary.
The mythic proportions of his character made it impossible for people to relate to him. He became a symbol, and more often than not, the only hero, of the revolution. Nothing new about Rizal is going to be introduced in this paper. Instead of adding another academic treatise to the Rizal industry, I aim to give my take on his story by drawing simple life lessons to what many see as an extraordinary life.
It is high time that we search our humanity in Rizal, and in turn, find Rizal in ourselves. Biography of Rizal as a Romantic Rizal has been given many labels.
Why was he first? During the Spanish regime, the creoles or Spaniards-born living in the Philippines were the ones called Filipinos, and not the brown man. Rizal, with his fellow reformists or indios bravos, insisted that the indios must have the same rights as a Spanish citizen.
As one of the first indios who insisted that we are also Filipinos, for Guerrero therefore, he was The First Filipino. However, none of the names we called him stuck as much as babaero. As a young student in Manila, Rizal was more or less faithful to his engagement with Leonor Rivera.
But unfortunately, Rivera ended up marrying an Englishman. It was then that he decided to consider the gorgeous French-Filipina Nelly Boustead rebound huh?
His last love, his dulce extranjera, was no other than Josephine Bracken. He was a lover of beautiful women but no one could say that he took liberties.
His friendships were joyous and worthwhile experiences without any trace of deception. This statement is one of my most benta jokes during my lectures, on a subject many perceive as boring. Many of the youth today are crazy about emo, a fad that started in the 80s. According to them, emo is a person who is emotional or may pagka senti, meaning sentimental in many ways and loves to wear black.
Being a passionate and sensitive person …Rizal could have been an emo today. I have always said that the number one evidence of this was his signature one sided hair. There were also his emotionally-charged writings. For example, this is what he wrote when he left Ateneo: Paalam, magandang panahong di ko malilimot.
Sa karimlan ng aking buhay, ikaw ang sandaling bukang-liwayway na hindi na muling babati. Paalam, maliligayang oras ng aking naglahong kamusmusan. Walang sinumang babae ang nagmahal sa akin tulad mo.
Hindi magmamaliw sa aking alaala ang iyong larawan. Ang pangalan mo ay mananatili sa aking labi sa bawat buntung-hininga.
Like the prevailing romanticism of that period in Europe, as scholars Ante Radaic and Nilo Ocampo point out, his writings, including his essays and novels, were focused on strong emotions rather documenting reality. He was focused and tireless, despite homesickness and frustrations, which all paid off as it ignited the fire of nationalism in his community.
