Rediscovering Manila

Happy Rizal Day everyone! Today we remember the life of one of the most influential and inspirational people in our Philippine history. José Protacio Mercado Rizal Alonso y Realonda, was a scientist, writer, painter, sculptor, doctor, and of course an ATENEAN (yehesssss!). At age 26, he published Noli Me Tangere, considered one of the greatest books of all time. My most marvelous contribution to society at that age was scrambling eggs. Although most of us may seem somewhat mediocre compared to the polymath Rizal, we all have the makings of a modern day hero. And if we just look a little deeper, we’ll find that there is a hero in each and every one just waiting to be unleashed. As we approach the end of 2011, maybe we should start jotting down all the things we’d like to start doing in 2012..hopefully, that list includes things that will bring about a positive change in your personal life and the lives of others around you as well. 
Yesterday, we finally found the time to take the famous Walk This Way Tour of the very vivacious and controversial, Carlos Celdran. As expected, Carlos was very engaging and entertaining. It’s a must not only for tourists and balikabayans, but even for locals like’s nice to rediscover Old Manila and fall in love with the city all over again.
