During opening weekend I visited the Asia Society Museum in NYC to see for myself the wonderful gold artifacts from the Philippines that depict our rich heritage and precolonial history prior to the arrival of the Spaniards. In old Spanish texts from Francisco Alcina, the most well known chronicler of the Bisayans to Antonio Pigafetta, the scholar who joined Ferdinand Magellan when they first landed in our shores, the mention of gold was very much prevalent throughout the islands. Our ancestors, from the slaves to the nobility, wore gold, most being passed down from generation to generation as bahandi, or heirlooms. From gold necklaces, bracelets, rings, armlets, to even sashes, belts, and the hilts of their daggers were made of gold. Their religious objects from bowls to figures of deities were also intricately designed and made of gold. They would often bury these gold objects so the dead person can wear them in the afterlife. It was also a form of acceptance in the afterlife as among the Bisayans according to Francisco Alcina in his 1668 records, the god of happiness and of Saad, the resting place of the souls, once upon receiving the soul from the primordial sea goddess Magwayen on a bangka, he would ask them a question. Surrounded by the ancestors he would ask if they were that certain person who died. However if the soul did not have with them any gold or bahandi, they would not recognize them. From records we know that the Spaniards often ransacked known burial sites for the purpose of taking these gold buried with the dead.

The Laguna Copperplate Inscription is the currently oldest, known documents from the Philippines. In this video we'll not only try to understand the copperplate, but also look into the medieval times in Central Luzon to get a bit of a background on the time period it was created.

A rehash of my old post which I find very funny and moving at the same time.

With 7107 islands, 17 regions, 81 Provinces, 145 cities, and thousands of municipalities, choosing a place to live in the Philippines is not that easy.

In this video, we trimmed down ten of the best places you can live in the Philippines. We considered the balance of modernity against cultural and environmental preservation, cost of living, and overall quality of life of the different Philippine cities in order to come up with this ranking.

DISCLAIMER: This ranking is based from our own criteria and judgement. No scientific basis was done in order to come up with this list.
