I must admit: Jose Rizal is not my favorite Filipino hero. For that slumbook question, my answer is reserved for Emilio Aguinaldo. I guess it’s because 1) the street I grew up in is named after him, and 2) who doesn’t love a man in uniform? 😉
But this year marks the 150th birth anniversary of my country’s national hero, and the government so kindly declared June 20th a non-working holiday. So as my way of thanksgiving, I trooped over to Yuchengco Museum (first time there, check!) for their RIZALizing the Future exhibit.
