We visited 5 places in our Viaje de Angono. We depart from Santolan Station by roughly 8 am. The travel time to reach our first destination which is the Rizal windmill is 2 hours, as far as I remember. I have not been to Ilocos Norte to witness the famous Bangui Windmills, and it is included my bucket list to have a picture with those. I was really amazed to see the wind farm in Rizal since it seems like I get to see those in Ilocos. I also found out that the same company is operating both the Bangui and Pililla windmills. The Pililla windmills are on top of the hills overlooking the beautiful plains of Tanay Rizal on one side and Laguna on the other side. One will also get a very good view of Laguna de Bay. There are infographic boards there about Pililia and the wind farm. One interesting fact on why Pililia was chosen as the site for these wind turbines –these hills have a natural wind corridor with a monthly average of 36kmh windspeed passing through the hill and heightens during Amihan (north-east winds) season from October to March. We took plenty of photos with the wind mills for remembrance. Also, we bought memorabilia that the residents are selling there.
We had our lunch after windmills. Then, we went to Nemiranda Art Haus and Balaw-balaw restaurant. This arthouse is surrounded by mythical relief murals and three dimensional mythological characters such as the “Ang Nuno” , “Habagat” and “Bernardo Carpio”, “Mariang Makiling”, “Mutya ng Pasig”, “The Mermaid of Angono, “Amihan”, and “Malakas at Maganda”. The second floor was full of nude paintings. What caught my eyes is the pastel blue stone mermaid placed above the arched entrance. Other stunningly beautiful paintings depict random subjects such as rural life (families in pastoral scenes, etc.) and subjects from local folklore…...

...when the culture was still untapped. They are very well representing the richness of this Island. As time passed, a number of things changed. What once was untapped culture suddenly changed little by little. The Philippines was influenced because of trading and the occupation of the foreigners through food, clothing, buildings, weapons, and dance. I could go on just telling how much change our country has gone through. Some say it is negative since we have forgotten our own culture but for others, it has created progress for the Philippines. A national artist worthy to be talked about is Carlos “Botong” Francisco. Have you ever wondered how dragging it would be to study passed events from our history if there were no pictures? From Angono, Rizal, Francisco was a most distinguished practitioner of mural painting for many decades and best known for his historical pieces. He was one of the first Filipino modernists along with Galo Ocampo and Victorio C. Edades who broke away from Fernando Amorsolo's romanticism of Philippine scenes. To others, Francisco's art "is a prime example of linear painting where lines and contours appear like cutouts." Having been able to enroll under sir Rafael Dolor, I was able to open doors when it came to the art of painting. Before, lines were just lines to me. But if you put them together, it would create a masterpiece. Suddenly, my world was not just all about using the internet, hanging out with friends and the like. There was more to......

His parents were Felipe Francisco and Maria Villaluz. His hometown featured prominently in his paintings and murals, and he commemorated many rural scenes and town folk in his composition. Botong came from very humble beginnings. In the early years he struggled even to acquire canvases to paint on. Together with Galo Ocampoand Victorio C. Edades, he formed the first group of modernists in Philippine art called "The Triumvirate", which struggled to break free from the cliched traditionalism of realist art pioneered by Fernando Amorsolo. He tried his hand at illustrating everything, even the lowly Pinoy komiks, illustrating the Tagalog classic Siete Infantes de Lara in......

Related Literature     The number of homosexuals in the Philippines continuous to grow and they are in the mainstream of about almost everything. Gays are creative and talented. Even the language that they are using cannot be simply overlooked at. Using their creativity and wit, they were able to make the language much more colorful and meaningful.

Kultura Carlos Cariño, the first play of Kutura was “Masdan ang Inyong Ina,” produced in collaboration with Rock Opera Company and Southridge. The production was a mish-mash of ROC members old and new, CAS faculty who were alumni, as well as high school students from Woodrose and Southridge. Marie Puyat, [place position here] and current Dullang ROC moderator, was a highschooler from Woodrose when she first starred in the musical. Calling “Masdan” a spectacle is an understatement. It was the grand opening of many years of artistic development not only for the students but for the school as well. “It dreamt of being the CCP of Pasig,” recalled Tinette. “We had concerts by the Manila Symphony Orchestra, exhibit of paintings by the Blancos of Angono, performances by the Madrigal Singers.” Carlos wanted to inspire the school by bringing all these big industry names into UA&P, and Chesie followed suit. Tinette, however, saw a different angle in terms of living up to the mission vision of Kultura. Tinette’s background was in theater, so it was natural that she wanted to expand Kultura via that avenue. She wanted more than one University play, entered the University Chorale in local and international competitions, as well as develop an avenue for the budding artists in the university to develop their talents despite not having an art program. The Kultura Young Artists Series, is one of those avenues. “We didn’t create them, we just helped along by giving them a stage all to......
