You’ve all seen the various Rizal Monuments all over the Philippines. At least one or two aside from the one in Rizal Park. You should check out this article. Also, Over Rizal: Monuments to a Hero, is an ongoing exhibit at the Vargas Museum, University of the Philippines, Diliman. It will run until August. Entrance is only P30. If you have time, you should visit it. It provides an entirely new narrative, not only on Rizal as a hero but also as a part of our everyday lives.

**had to edit as hyperlink is not working, i don’t know how to fix that.

KITSCH. In all caps. A few years ago, I needed foreign examples to discuss Umberto Eco's Faith in Fakes. Now, its right smack in the metro. Any doubt would be drowned in lurid shades of pink. I would need to channel my inner Fitzgerald to tell the story of how I ended up here in the first place. It might be a diamond as big as the Ritz, ironically, one of the stops. The amount of resources being channeled to create the KITSCH of all kitsches is fantastic, indulgence amidst indigence. #manila Lost Uber and traffic. Basically, Manila.
