‘Thank you B747, Hello B777!” The Philippine Airlines jumbo jets (right aircraft)—the iconic Boeing 747-400s—were formally retired last May 12 in a ceremony where the flag carrier also announced the use of the new B777300ER as replacement on the trans-Pacific routes, following the country’s Category 1 upgrading by the US government.

The SeekerS of

Batanes

10

P Photo by Justin Ventura

ractically everyone who has been to our cover feature, Batanes would always have something nice to say. Rugged, wind swept, unspoiled, and isolated, it is invariably described as the best place to get away from it all. My former Managing Editor, Lynette Lee Corporal who wrote the Batanes feature is always looking for an excuse to visit. A young Filipino executive who has traveled many parts of the world said that the best San Miguel beer he ever drank was on top of a hill in Batanes while just gazing at the horizon.

My friend Manny Baldemor, who is popularly known as the UNICEF artist just came from Batanes where he conducted an art workshop for 150 students together with fellow artist Victoria Abad Kerblat. Some even braved a three-hour boat journey just to attend. What a complete and fulfilling life Manny leads. He went to Batanes to share his artistic knowledge for free and at the ART FOR ALL: manny baldemor and the same time, he was able to paint locals of batanes engage in a critique session and had an exhibit that did well. after his art lesson. In Batanes, Manny observed that “their life is simple and the people are as distinctive as they are courteous. Children would still kiss the hands of a stranger as a sign of respect. Everything is enchanting and magical.” He is grateful that PAL now has regular flights to Batanes and noted that the flight he took was full.

HANDS OF AN ARTIST: not many people know that bien bautista was a painter first before becoming a photographer.

We are continuing our regular series on photography and this time, we are presenting a feature on architecture photography by Bien Bautista. A multi-awarded photographer, Bien talks about looking at structures in a wider perspective while being sensitive to the little details that give object’s a unique character. If you shift the conversation to Batanes and ask Bien if he is willing to go to back again, he would probably give the same answer as Manny and Lynette: any time.

It is both a blessing and a lusty cheer. “Mabuhay” (ma-boo-high) is such a large word that it lends itself to a wide number of secondary uses: Welcome, Congratulations, Thanks, Godspeed, Hello, Good Luck, Cheers, Posit, Sante, Viva, Kambei, Aloha, and many other expressions of goodwill. All these are a part of life, but it is the gift of life that makes them possible. “Mabuhay,” in other words, is an invocation and a celebration of life itself.

Le Jardin, Le Beautiful High ceilings, real calamansi trees, and the sound of chirping birds welcome you at Le Jardin, a newly opened restaurant in The Fort. Such airiness transports you to a garden table that’s awash in morning sunlight and it’s simply the perfect setting for a French meal. In their four- to six-course dinner, foie gras and truffle mushroom are used in most of the dishes, lending a very rich and sinful flavor. Behind the cuisine is French chef Gils Brault (seated) and his son, Guillaume, who are known for Le Trois Gourmands in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Managing the kitchen when he is not in Manila are equally talented chefs Hasset Go (right) and Jonas Ng (left). It’s also notable that Le Jardin creates its own cheese from scratch, a painstaking process that’s worth it once you try one of their cheeses. They will also offer an intensive and exclusive winepairing program from small, independent wine producers from France.

Travel Trend: Millennials There’s a new group that’s driving the travel industry and they’re not necessarily the ones with hefty paychecks. Called “millennials,” or those currently in their 20s to early 30s, this young generation has been the target market of tourism establishments worldwide. According to international studies, millennials are gadget-centric, have expensive taste, and spontaneous. Capture their sensibilities and you might just hit a gold mine.

“Rak of Aegis” Rocks Again The sensational rock comedy musical Rak of Aegis is back. Featuring the songs of the wildly popular Aegis band like “Basang-basa sa Ulan,” Rak of Aegis has it all—be it natural calamities, unrequited love, and a talented mix of actors and crew—Aicelle Santos and Robert Seña, among others. The play is set to re-run at the PETA Theater Center from June 20 to August 31. petatheater.com/

Put a Ring on It Every Harry Winston engagement ring begins with a diamond chosen for its exceptional quality. An emeraldcut diamond is given prominence by two tapered baguette side stones in an elegant platinum setting. The diamonds in tapered baguette setting embody Harry Winston’s timeless elegance and signature style. Its refined design emphasizes delicate details: the subtlety of platinum prongs, the tapered platinum setting that supports the diamond visually and structurally, the near invisible underpinnings, and the grace of the ring shank. The sophisticated yet sturdy setting epitomizes the Winston legacy of handcrafted luxury. G/F Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread Hot off the griddle, White Hat at Alabang Town Center rolls out a new menu featuring two savory sandwiches. Instead of the usual white bread, the new menu uses a fresh sourdough batter to make crisp-on-the-outsideand-soft-on-the-inside waffles that act as their buns. The two flavors—namely Creamy Chicken and Apples and Curry Tuna and Cranberries—are surprising combinations of fresh ingredients and creative thought. The sandwiches never leave too far from White Hat’s menu though, as some of the sandwiches still use yogurt as a prime ingredient. www.thewhitehat.com.ph

NÃO Do Brasil, a French brand of 100 percent Brazilian manufactured leisure footwear, finds its way to Manila, opening its only store in Asia. These comfortable shoes quickly gained global attention because of their unique design. The shoes are “one-off” type, depending on the color, fabric, and materials available. They are made completely by hand in a purely craft setting. As a result, most pairs are in limited editions and might not be seen again. More than 70 percent of the materials used in NÃO shoes are recycled or salvaged, giving them a second life. Fashion Hall, SM Megamall Building D, EDSA, Mandaluyong City

The Age

Before The iPod

let’s revisit the seminal moments of our lives as told through music. by tatin Yang illustrations by tricia mabale

24

1877-1887 PhonograPh/ gramoPhone Thomas Edison not only invented the light bulb, he also invented the phonograph, a machine capable of recording and reproducing sound. Sounds were initially recorded on a phonograph cylinder with tinfoil wrapped around it. Emile Berliner would later move away from using cylinders and introduced gramophone records, flat doublesided discs with grooves along its surface.

1954 PortabLe transistor radio The portable radio receiver revolutionized music as people were able to listen to music anywhere. Listeners could also access news programs on a different radio frequency.

1857 PhonautograPh

1940s onwards LP and hi-Fi

Frenchman ÉdouardLeon Scott de Martinville created a barrel-like machine that could record sound. Originally built to aid researchers studying the science of acoustics, they realized they could recreate the sound being recorded by the device. Unfortunately, the phonautograph was only capable of recording sound and not playing it back.

The first gramophone records could only store under five minutes of recordings, but by 1931, the RCA Victor company was working on a longplaying (LP) record that could play back music for a total of 20 minutes. The discs were made out of vinyl plastic because of the material’s ability to dispel surface noise; it was also favored for its durability. Sound engineers also worked hard to perfect sound reproduction, coming up with the term “high fidelity” (Hi-Fi) to describe superior sound quality.

1963 Cassette taPe Music could be shared and played back with the arrival of the cassette tape. Sounds were recorded on a magnetic tape wound around two small spools.

Iconic American rock band Bon Jovi was formed this year.

A Throwback in Music Turntable companies have been turning a profit too. According to New York Times, a Vienna-based company producing the popular Pro-Ject Turntable sells about 8,000 units a month, and these players don't come cheap. Turntable prices range from $249 to as high as $25,000 (P1.1 million, easily the cost of a car).

the Present: Nowadays, if you hear a song you like, you can easily download it either through iTunes or Amazon. For those who are always connected to the Internet and would not prefer to own the songs, music streaming sites like Spotify are offering users access to their music library containing over 20 million songs. Here are some other apps which you can download:

1995 - 1998 the rise oF the mP3 The development of digital audio format MP3 and the Internet saw the beginning of music digitization as well as the rise of music piracy. Peer-to-peer sharing software enabled users to easily download music for free. In 1998, a South Korean company released the MPMan, a portable MP3 player, and other companies soon followed suit.

1979 waLkman Following the cassette tape was the Walkman, a portable cassette player by Sony. Owning a Walkman and its trademark headphones was a symbol of cool.

Vocalist of Grammywinning band Maroon 5, Adam Levine, was born on March 18, 1979.

Songza Shazam Songkick TuneIn Radio Garageband Musye

1983 ComPaCt disC

2001 aPPLe’s iPod

The introduction of the compact disc effectively killed the cassette, becoming the preferred format for music albums. The portable CD players or Discmans, followed thereafter.

During the MP3’s proliferation and the influx of digital music players, file formats were widely different. Apple’s Steve Jobs, a music lover, sought to unify the music and the player. A portable hard disk that could store thousands of songs was then created—what we lovingly know today as the iPod. The music industry could then sell their tracks in a standard digital format through the online music store, iTunes.

Ohhh Macarena! The song that everybody loved to dance along to, by Spanish pop duo Los Del Rio, became an international hit from year 1995 to 1997.

25

Vinyl records are making a huge comeback. Vinyl pressing companies have now reopened across the U.S. Last year's No. 1 selling vinyl record wasn't a reissue of The Beatles or Eric Clapton, but Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories." Many hardcore audiophiles still love the rich sound a vinyl record can produce, especially when paired with specialized equipment like vacuum tube amplifiers. A brand-new vinyl record averages $30, while vintage collectibles can go as high as $5,000.

T

he aroma is tantalizing—laden with rich earthy tones and the trace of a floral bouquet. I am ingesting the scent of Ethiopian coffee beans while deciding which single-origin drip coffee to try at Afters Espresso & Desserts. The Kenyan coffee cherries give off fruity notes (hint of lemon, perhaps), while the Brazilian beans have a nutty fragrance. I select the Yirgacheffe, whose beans are hand-picked by coffee growers on a mountain farm in Ethiopia. I don’t know them, but I know they’re doing something right. The Yirgacheffe is exquisite, with a delicate piquancy reminiscent of tea. Yet it’s not solely about the brew—the way they serve the coffee is significant. A cup is heated and a filter affixed on top. Coffee is decanted and left to drip. This is repeated, and the filter removed. The result is black and pure, without sugar or cream. Simple preparation, but elegant. Such attention to a process is what sets apart artisanal cafés from coffee chains. All too often, we are only aware of the contents of our cups. But there’s a backstory to the espresso we quaff, and it matters. A devotion for process fuels the minds

“But now I know why they say that artisanal coffee is like wine. It is a drink for connoisseurs, an experience as much as it is a beverage. It’s some jazzy brew cooked up by Miles Davis, and I’d only ever listened to Limp Bizkit.” behind Yardstick Coffee, whose concept bar appears built from a sophisticated set of maple building blocks. Yardstick’s owners exhibit a playfulness coupled with a serious devotion to the art of the brew. As co-owner André Chanco explains, the café space is designed to be transparent to allow customers to oversee every step that goes into fulfilling the order. I observe Eric, their barista, as he goes about the grinding and cupping of their Project Y roast. His craft is on display as much as the La Marzocco espresso maker he’s using. A grinder purrs. The ground coffee is then tested between the barista’s fingers. The feel of the grains tell him whether the grind went well, Eric says. The grains enter the machine. Espresso flows into a demitasse (a small cup). Eric tastes it, declares the acidity oversharp. Back to the grinder, starting from the top. As he works, Eric informs me that minute differences in the amount and temperature of the water affect flavor. Timing is critical in concocting espresso. Eric performs the sequence thrice before getting a satisfactory brew. A sip of the espresso reveals it is a tad acidic—or bright, as tasters say—in an

intriguing, pinpricky way. The espresso is tasty, yet I must admit I don’t quite “get” it—like my countrymen, I have an affinity for simple, bold roasts. But now I know why they say that artisanal coffee is like wine. It is a drink for connoisseurs, an experience as much as it is a beverage. It’s some jazzy brew cooked up by Miles Davis, and I’d only ever listened to Limp Bizkit. Yardstick’s café is actually a showroom—for coffee machines, roasts, and workshops. More than that, it’s selling a new kind of coffee culture. The Third Wave Coffee Movement is an alternative to the retail-driven, one-size-fits-all approach. But appreciation of coffee is based on subjective feeling, André emphasizes. One espresso from one roast can provoke different responses from different people. Every Third Wave coffeeshop has its own personality, I’ve found. Yardstick Coffee, with their relentless pursuit of the “perfect” espresso, resemble artists honing a high level of talent. Craft Coffee Revolution feels like a craftsman’s workshop upjumped to bar, which is kind of what happened. Commune seeks to reinvent the Parisian-style community café for the iPod Generation.

Afters Espresso & Desserts’ chocolatey interior suits its dessert café status. Its owner, Vincent Fideles, chatters with an endearingly geeky obsessiveness about his culinary formulations. Vincent originally had in mind a gelato shop, and he made me taste a scoop of Belgian chocolate. It has a custard-like consistency that’s a lovely sensation on the tongue, coupled with an intensely rich cacao flavor. I suggest you try their Affogato, a shot of warm espresso that you pour over a serving of Stracciatella (milk gelato). Craft Coffee Revolution began as a roasting facility, but word-of-mouth brought people knocking, and now it’s a cozy tasting bar. They still roast the coffee themselves. You’ll even see their machine standing by the entrance. Craft offers an impressive variety of roasts, largely using South and Central American beans, though they carry African and Asian stock as well. I try their brew of the week, Ethiopia Konga which is served black, detecting hints of citrus and cherry in it. Commune sources all its coffee from local farms. Their single-origin roasts include Mount Matutum, Mount Kitanglad, and Sagada. It was envisioned by proprietor Ros Juan as a place where people congregate out of a love for both coffee and community. Besides being sociably oriented, Ros is socially conscious, with a concern over the plight of Philippine

coffee farmers. She elaborates on the hardship inherent in coffee picking—for one thing, beans can only be plucked by hand, as they don’t all ripen at once. It’s painstaking. But that’s how you get great coffee. And you can get it in a cocktail here. Or does a refreshing, cold-brewed Iced Toddy sound tempting to you? Coffee goes well with the first meal of the day, and here you can order a Filipino breakfast staple, tapsilog. Very appetizing.

This exquisite new collection from H.Stern takes us on a ride through the endless curves created by one of the shapers of modern architecture.

B

efore we see architectural landmarks take shape, they were once merely visions on the mind or images on a paper. For Oscar Niemeyer (1907 - 2012), one of the brilliant minds who helped shape modern architecture, the creation of a design is simply magical. He once remarked, “Oh, how magic it is to see the birth of a palace, a museum, a fine figure of a woman on the white sheet of paper! How I desire and

“Architecture is about overcoming spaces... I cannot understand those who are afraid of open spaces. Space is part of architecture.”

like drawing them! How I feel them in the curves of my architecture!” As Brazil’s most famous architect, Niemeyer’s works have been immortalized by H.Stern. What used to be largescale icons are now exquisite pieces of embellishment. Now, the collection features additional pieces through the endless lines of life. The new pieces of jewellery have been inspired by Niemeyer’s drawings and approved personally by him, in the last year of his life. It follows the inspiration concept of the first version: the unique, simple, and natural outlines of the architect, who was, first and foremost, a gifted designer. Sinuous contours, light and continuous lines that seem to lead to infinity can be seen in a new selection of rings, earrings, and pendants. The minimalism and lightness, molded in yellow or white gold with diamonds, are common features to all the designs, which were inspired by iconic architectural projects or unknown doodles—all with the invaluable signature of Niemeyer. FLOWER Niemeyer’s work also includes sketches of singular beauty, like one of a hand holding a flower with four leaves. This drawing provided the inspiration

for new rings in 18K yellow gold and 18K white gold with diamonds, a pendant, and two pairs of earrings. MONUMENT The Ibirapuera Park, in São Paulo, projected by Niemeyer in 1954 to celebrate the city’s 400th anniversary, integrates a rare green beauty to his architectural design, with buildings such as the Oca, the Bienal, and the beautiful Ibirapuera Auditorium. The park design sculpture made by Niemeyer was provided with a central stem that was surrounded by a spiral around it. This work was the inspiration for the creation of two pairs of earrings made in its image and likeness, of 18K yellow gold or white gold with diamonds. COPAN One of the icons of the famous concrete poetry of São Paulo, the Copan building has hovered like a wave on the horizon of the metropolis since the 1950s, contrasting with the straight angles that predominate in the local architecture. It was the wavy, striking design of this Niemeyersignature building that was the inspiration behind the new Copan ring now presented in wavy forms made of 18K white gold with diamonds. n H.Stern is available only at Adora, Greenbelt 5, Makati City.

t’s a quiet Sunday afternoon. Suddenly, a deafening sound fills the air. Three small bells are being rung, perhaps with too much gusto, by college students Ingrid, Sol, and Catchel. My first thought is to get them to stop— but my irritation quickly turns to fascination. Why did those little bells sound so loud? This is the Manila for A Day (M4AD) tour of Intramuros, and we’re at the escalera principal or main staircase of the San Agustin

Church. Here, M4AD tour guide Dustin Ancheta has asked my tour companions to ring the bells to demonstrate the acoustic qualities of this place. “Imagine something like the ‘El D. Nombre de Jesus’ (the huge 3,400-kilo bell sitting at the entrance of the church convent) and the ear-shattering noise that thing could make,” he says after the demonstration. “That was a sign of how wealthy a church was.” Sol lets out a low whistle and

the girls’ eyes light up in awe. In that moment, we are all transported back in time to when that bell was still hanging in the left belfry of the church. Now, this is how history should be taught in school, instead of the dull, mechanical memorizing of dates and names so many of us had to endure. Entitled “3G: God, Gold, and Glory,” the M4AD tour covers three places. The San Agustin Church, a UNESCO World Heritage “Now, this is site, is the first stop. Here, how history you’ll learn what brought should be taught Spanish colonizers to in school, these islands, and how it instead of the changed life for the early dull, mechanical Filipinos. You’ll take a tour of the church itself memorizing of and learn about the life of dates and names the friars. so many of us Next is Casa Manila, a had to endure.“ reproduction of an 1800s house. The design and furnishings of the house reveal much about the culture of that period. You’ll get a glimpse into the Filipino psyche and how rich the Philippines was at that time. To drive home this very point, the tour ends at The Manila Collectible Co., with its wealth of products from around the country—handwoven backpacks, local chocolate, to traditionally woven fabrics. Refreshments are served and additional questions answered here.

M4AD promises a “super fun time-traveling experience,” and that is exactly what it delivers. Dustin doesn’t just point out tourist spots but takes you into the past through sight, sounds, smell, touch, and taste. “You can just smell the cholera,” Ingrid notes, after his particularly vivid description of sea travel during the Spanish period. Dustin, a graduate of the Department of Tourism’s Mabuhay Guides program in 2009, is M4AD’s lead history weaver. It’s an apt title; he weaves such compelling stories of the past, it’s as if he actually lived them. His stories are grounded in fact (“Half of my time is spent making sure that everything I say in the tour is academically citable,” he says), but he tells them with humor and wit. What sets M4AD tour apart is its mix of history with anthropology, art studies and some sociology thrown in. There will be oohs, aahs, and aha moments when you realize, with Dustin’s prodding, what’s so remarkable about a statue, chair, or piece of décor. The tour gives context—shows why things were the way they were in those days, and how they got that way. Dustin says the aim of the M4AD tour is to teach you how to look. “You could walk into Casa Manila on your own, and you’d be in and out in 10 minutes. What would your take-away be? I want anyone who joins the tour—the whole Philippine nation, if possible—to think beyond where we are right now. And the way we’re going to do that is by looking at our past.” n

any cities base their reputation on how they cater to lovers of the light or denizens of the dark, and a visit to Toronto, Canada, may provide the perfect balance between the all-night adventure and the early-morning sojourn you’ve been looking for. FOR NIGHT HAWKS Toronto’s live music scene is legendary; slip into the Dakota Tavern, Toronto’s favorite subterranean saloon, for a wee bit of nouveau country fun; Western paraphernalia is pinned to every wall (guns, skulls, and whatnot), high-backed stools are made from old whiskey barrels, and big, heavy barn doors lead nowhere. The Dakota has a fantastic bar and lively house band. For more classic spots, visit the Horseshoe Tavern, which has been around for more than 60 years and has hosted everyone from the Rolling Stones to Neil Young. Massey Hall is the city’s oldest live music venue, while the Mod Club hosts hip hop powerhouses to electronic wunderkinds. Apart from a myriad of bars, bistros, and pubs, The Distillery District is more than just a place to go get sauced. The district’s artisans keep their doors open late; visit the SOMA chocolate shop for sweet stuff, the Corkin Gallery for fine art,

SUBTERRANEAN SHOPPING The world’s largest underground shopping complex PATH is located beneath the Toronto Financial District. According to Guinness World Records, it has 30km of shopping arcades and 371,600 square meters of retail space.

the Soulpepper Theatre for a stage entertainment, and Ontario Spring Water Sake for a sip of something altogether special. The district’s antiquated buildings—from the Tank House, Boiler House, Cannery, Paint Shop, and Cooperage come to atmospheric life under evening light. Toronto’s craft brewing scene is booming. More than 25 craft breweries dot the city and are often offered up in cozy, chic brew pubs with sensational eats. Bellwoods Brewery, at the heart of the Ossington neighborhood, produces some of the finest beers in Canada and has a great patio to boot. The Amsterdam Brewery’s Adventure Series has been turning heads with releases like the Goedemorgen, a Belgian Golden Ale aged in Chardonnay Barrels, and the wild Lady Stavoren Wheat Wine. Spearhead Brewing Company serves the tremendous Big Kahuna Imperial India Pale Ale, and the Hawaii Style Pale Ale. For all-night dancing, Lula Lounge on Dundas Street W is a fantastic place. Alternatively, the wildly popular Saturday Night Cafe Cubano offers a tremendous, festive vibe. If you’re shy about your dancing skills but want to put your voice on display, take the stage at BMB Karaoke, or pop into Grasshopper Records to sing along with their inhouse musician.

at the literary genius spewed forth. Then there’s Lost & Found, a boutique menswear shop that features designs by local textile wizards, or you could sweat out the excess of the night before at Ossington’s Academy of Lions which offers a Cross-Fit experience paired with a latte or fruit smoothie. Toronto is blessed with hundreds of kilometers of walking trails, dozens of parks, gorgeous green spaces, and the beautiful Toronto islands, which makes finding a bit of quiet respite from the country’s biggest and busiest city quite easy. You can take a ferry to the islands for a picnic, explore Moatfield Farm Park, or run your way along the Betty Sutherland trail, with Toronto Parks connections to Battery Park, the East Don Parklands, gorgeous and sprawling High Park (so big you’ll forget there’s a city surrounding it) and more. For lovers of architecture and high culture, there’s the always bustling Union Station, a stoic symbol of Canadian progress, the Canadian Opera Company (the building itself

is a remarkable work of art), or the Canadian National Exhibition, with its heritage buildings, legacy structures, museums, galleries and amphitheaters. Nathan Phillips Square, the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts, and even the Hockey Hall of Fame will provide succinct glimpses at Toronto life, both antiquated and modern. Design shops like Williams Craig in Ossington offer a look at what bespoke life is while you can wander at the public art on everything from walls to bicycle tires in Kensington. If you don’t mind traveling further afield, head north of the city to Canada’s Wonderland for a day of thrills and corkscrew spills at one of North America’s best amusement parks, or south to the waters of Lake Ontario, where you can unwind on the beach or cruise the great lake. n

Ivatan House

The traditional and sturdy Ivatan stone houses are able to withstand the strongest typhoons because the meter-thick walls made of stones and corals are fortified with limestone. The cogon roofs constructed with roof nets are also about a foot thick and can last for 25 years without being replaced.

any tourists have swam in the waters of Saud Beach in Pagudpud, visited the UNESCO-listed Paoay Church, and taken a jump shot at the Bangui Windmills. But Ilocos Norte has something new that beckons us for another visit. We’ve all heard of the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation and the windmills in Bangui, but to get a sweeping view of the sea, the rock formation, the windmills, and the rolling mountains all at once, head to Palpalokada. It’s a vast adventure

park where you can hike or ride horses. However, there’s been word that a new set of windmills are currently being constructed in this area. Meanwhile, in the nearby town of Burgos, you will find Tanap Rapids, a picturesque Watershed Forest Reserve of cascading and bluish waterfalls. Take a dip into its cool waters or lie around its rock formations. But of course, we can’t ignore the well-loved destinations. Nestled among coconut groves in Pagudpud, at the edge of Ilocos Norte, Kapuluan Vista Resort

balances modern amenities and nature’s best. Before reaching the resort, you’ll pass by Baugan Bay or famously known as “Blue Lagoon.” Now, what the Blue Lagoon lacks in modern facilities, it more than makes up for with its raw beauty. Visitors are greeted with a canopy of trees, blue waters, moderate swells, and vines crawling on the sand. The lagoon has a pristine white-sand beach that’s perfect for snorkeling, sunbathing, and swimming. For the more adventurous, paddleboats and surfboards can be rented in Kapuluan.

FOLKTALE

The Legend of Buntud Tulan (Blaan)

Bong Dong and Kay Dong went back to their group and gathered as many warriors as they could. The Blaan leaders did the same. They met at Sapu, Padidu, and both tribes fought each other mightily and savagely. When Bong To and Kay To shot their arrows, they killed thousands of Manobos including Bong Dong and Kay Dong. A few Blaans were also killed, but they won the war. The day after the encounter the victorious tribe gathered the dead bodies and piled them in one place. Weeks, months, and years passed until the piled dead bodies turned to soil forming a hill. The Blaans called it Buntud Tulan—a hill of bones. It is a living evidence of the triumph of the Blaans over the Manobos.

T

oday, there is a hill located in Sapu, Padidu, Malapatan, South Cotabato, called Buntud Tulan. How the hill got its name is told in this narrative. Once upon a time, there was a war between the Blaans and the Manobos in the place. The Manobos were experts in the use of spears, while the Blaans were experts in the bow and arrow. There was a misunderstanding between the two groups which resulted in war. The leaders of the Manobos were Bong Dong and Kay Dong while those of the Blaans were Bong To and Kay To. One day, Bong Dong and Kay Dong went to the area of their opponents and killed many Blaans. Bong To and Kay To did the same to the Manobos and so the war started.

PAL crew reminisce JPii fLights BY jonathan p. gesmundo

T

he close affinity of Filipinos with the late Pope John Paul II—who was canonized last April 27—was forged during the 1981 and 1995 Philippine Papal visits. That Filipinos were able to experience Pope John Paul II up close twice is mainly because he traveled more than any other Pontiff in recent history, recognizing that not all Catholics can afford a pilgrimage to the Vatican. Employees of flag carrier Philippine Airlines, the Pope’s official carrier for his visits to the Philippines, were the envy of many Filipinos as they had the chance to meet JPII up close. Both in 1981 and 1995, the front cabin of the PAL aircraft that carried the Pontiff and his entourage was reconfigured and fitted with special seats and a full-flat ‘Skybed’ for his utmost comfort. Retired PAL Captain Tereso B. Lebumfacil who piloted the Boeing 727, vividly remembers his special assignment to fly the Pope from Manila to six cities within a span of three days. When John Paul II boarded the aircraft on Feb. 19, 1981 that would take him to Cebu, he told Capt. Lebumfacil, “I am now in your hands.” Before the whirlwind journey throughout the archipelago ended, the Bishop of Rome gifted Capt. Lebumfacil with a Holy Rosary that he treasures to this day. Flight Steward Daniel Pido, one of those assigned to the flight, reminisced, “Every mealtime, the Papal secretary would choose three members of the entourage to join His Holiness. The Pope, then in the pink of health, ate and drank heartily, wiping off all the sauce from the plate with bread and would dilute his red wine with mineral water.” “The presence of a powerful person, such as a head of state, normally charges the air inside the cabin with his presence and fills all those around him with awe. Pope John Paul II exuded a different aura. The first time I met him, I immediately felt the presence of a holy man and I got filled up with a feeling of wellbeing that tears began to swell in my eyes,” Pido added. Close to 14 years later, PAL again rolled out the red carpet for its very special passenger, who presided over the tenth World Youth Day.

While the aging Pontiff restricted his grueling itinerary to Manila for health reasons, the intensity of Filipinos’ affection did not wane a bit. When time came for the then 74-year-old Pontiff to leave, PAL dressed up the front section of its Airbus 300 jet with special seats, a table and a Skybed. Heading the cabin attendants of that Papal flight from Manila to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, was Flight Purser Lito Trias, who takes pride at having the opportunity to have served the Pope also in 1981. “The Pope’s aura did not change. He was truly a holy man,” Trias recalls. Before the plane took off, His Holiness obliged the flight crew with photo opportunities. Pilot-in-command Capt. Spike Juliano was awestruck when he sat beside the Pontiff for the photoop. The visibly tired Pope told Juliano in a voice barely above whisper, “I bless you and your whole family.” For members of the PAL crew privileged enough to have served JPII on his visits to the country, these cherished memories now hold even deeper spiritual meaning. After all, not everyone can say they served a saint. n

TOUCHDOWN MANILA

COASTAL BEAUTY: The province of Palawan has many more natural attractions beyond the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Puerto Princesa Underground River, such as this beautiful beach in Sabang.

PHILIPPINES AT A GLANCE

Official Name: Republika ng Pilipinas/ Republic of the Philippines Capital: Manila Official Languages: Filipino, English Land Area: 1115,830 sq mi/300,000 sq km Climate: Hot Dry Season: March–May Rainy Season: June–November Cool Dry Season: December–February Temperature Range: 21°C (70°F) to 32°C (90°F) Currency: Philippine peso (Php) PHILIPPINE JEWELS. One of the New 7 Wonders of Nature can be found in Palawan, Philippines. It is the Puerto Princesa Underground River. The Conus gloriamaris or “Glory of the Seas cone” is the rarest and most expensive seashell in the world and can be found in the Philippines. Boracay, an island located at the northwestern tip of Panay, has some of the world’s best beaches, with sugary-white, powdery sand that never burns your feet no matter how hot the day gets.

RELIgION. Approximately 90% of Filipinos are Christians: about 80% belong to the Roman Catholic Church while 10% belong to other Christian denominations. Between 5% and 10% of the population are Muslim, most of whom live in parts of Mindanao, Palawan, and the Sulu Archipelago—an area known as Bangsamoro or the Moro region. SHOPPINg. The Philippines is fast becoming a shopping haven, yielding great bargains if you know what to look for and where. Divisoria Flea Market in downtown Manila is the place to go for cheap and tight-budget shopping. The country’s upscale malls carry international brands and can be found within the area of the Makati Central Business District. Handicraft stores can be found all over the country, selling export-quality products like native baskets, hand-woven fabrics, fine jewelry, and home accessories. NIgHTLIfE.

TRANSPORTATION. PAL flies between Manila and 32 cities and towns throughout the country. Public transportation such as taxis, buses, jeepneys, and motorized tricycles are available in major cities. The train services are provided by three main railway networks that serve different areas of Metro Manila and parts of Luzon: the Manila Light Rail Transit System (LRT), the Manila Metro Rail Transit System (MRT), and the Philippine National Railways (PNR). International car rental companies provide chauffeured or selfdriven limousine service. Large groups may hire medium-sized passengers vans or tourist coaches. fOOD. Filipino food may puzzle the first-time eater. Philippine history is largely responsible for this complex mix of cuisine from the Chinese traders who introduced their culinary influence to Castilian and Mexican cooking brought by the Spanish colonizers. The Americans brought the convenience of fast food meal while other Asian cuisines from the Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese started to emerge as well. Famous Filipino dishes include lechón (whole roasted pig), longganisa (Philippine sausage), tapa (cured beef), torta (omelette), adobo (chicken and/ or pork braised in garlic, vinegar, oil, and soy sauce), kaldereta (meat stewed in tomato sauce), mechado (larded beef in soy and tomato sauce), puchero (beef and plantains in tomato sauce), afritada (chicken and/or pork with vegetables simmered in tomato sauce), kare-kare (oxtail and vegetables cooked in peanut sauce), crispy pata (deepfried pig’s leg), hamonado (pork braised in pineapple sauce), sinigang (meat or seafood in sour broth), pancit (noodles), and lumpia (fresh or fried spring rolls). n
