Philippine Cannibal

Most cannibals in the Philippines are those who live in the Cordillera mountains – some Itneg, Isneg, Kalinga, and Bontok tribes used to be cannibals – but then, not all of them were – only a small minority of them. Rather, they are known more for being headhunters – chopping off the head of enemies they have killed.

Historic Town of Vigan

The Historic Town of Vigan was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999. UNESCO inscribed Vigan in the World Heritage List because it “represents a unique fusion of Asian building design and construction with European colonial architecture and planning,” and “is an exceptionally intact and well preserved example of a European trading town in East and South-East Asia.”


Filipino Ingenuity in “BOGA”

I remembered during high school days . We have made a entry for a science fair, Our Entry was a rocket powered by Butane Alcohol. Same Principle as our modified rocket for the science fair !

This modified canon is Powered by butane alcohol(some uses other fuel that I’m not familiar of) and Lighter igniter for its ignition ! The BOGA is fueled by Butane Alcohol using a spray(empty spraynet bottles or other)

Then Few Years ago. ! a certain Modified canon has been invented or discovered – or re modified by Filipino’s

And the result was this modified canon for New Years Celebration.
It is called “BOGA” in local terms. Some called it PVC canon(made my cut PVC pipes) others also made BOGA using tin Cans fixed together

Nah. There you go , another Filipino Ingenuity ! ! 🙂

Pangong Tso

Pangong Tso the lake at the finale of 3 Idiots

Pangong Tso (or Pangong lake; Tso: Ladakhi for lake) is a lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4250 m (13,900 ft). It is 134 km (83.3 mi) long and extends from India to Tibet. Two thirds of the length of this lake falls in the People’s Republic of China. It is 5 km (3 mi) wide at its broadest point. In winter, the lake surface freezes completely despite being salt water.

Pangong Tso can be reached in a five-hour drive from Leh, most of it on a rough and dramatic mountain road. The road traverses the third-highest pass in the world, the Changla pass, where army sentries and a small teahouse greet visitors.

Here you can see partly melted lake at places after chilly winter.

Bangko Sentral issues new generation banknotes

Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas on Thursday unveiled the bank notes’ new designs.

The new bills  honor  former presidents Manuel Quezon, Sergio Osmena, Manuel Roxas, and Diosdado Macapagal. As well as former Senator Ninoy Aquino, and war heroes Josefa Llanes Escoda, Vicente Lim, and Jose Abad Santos.

The back of the P20 bill shows the Banaue Rice Terraces and an animal, Palm Civet or ‘Alamid’ in local language.

The now darker red P50 bill meanwhile shows Taal Lake and Maliputo, a fish that thrives only in the waters of the lake.

The back of the almost purple P100 bill shows ‘perfect cone’ Mayon Volcano and a Butanding, a whale shark that is a main attraction in Sorsogon.

The almost green P200 bill shows Bohol Chocolate Hills and the world’s smallest primate found in the Philippines, the Tarsier.

Former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s photo taking oath is now in front of the P200 bill but is almost not visible.

The P500 bill now features former President Corazon Aquino, whose photo is placed beside his husband, Ninoy. It also depicts a smiling Ninoy, a far cry from his forlorn image in the current P500 bill.

The P500 bill features Puerto Princesa Subterranean River

The P1000 bill features the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park and a South Sea Pearl.
