Rizal Memorial Sports Complex

 






A bit of history ...
Do you know the man behind the construction of the “RIZAL MEMORIAL SPORTS COMPLEX” in the year 1941 was Antonio de Las Alas. Many years after, his daughters Ching de las Alas Montinola & Menchu de las Alas Concepcion voiced their opposition to then Mayor Joseph Estrada’s plan to convert the sprawling facility into another commercial center. Both daughters said, “ it would be better for the city government to preserve the complex and continue using it for sports events “. In April 2017 Rizal Memorial Coliseum was declared a National Historical Landmark ensuring the sites preservation.
* Antonio de las Alas is my Lolo and Menchu de Las Alas Concepcion is my mom.

Intramuros

 


A bit of history ... Did you know that “INTRAMUROS”, or the ‘Walled City’, is one of the oldest districts of Manila, built on the south bank of the Pasig River around 1571. It was built by the Spaniards – more specifically by Miguel Lopez de Legaspi.

The Manila Cathedral


A little history ... Do you know that “The Manila Cathedral” was initially built as a simple parish in Manila in 1571 by Juan de Vivero, a secular priest, and was dedicated to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Back then, it was simply made of nipa and bamboo. On December 21, 1581, its status was elevated to a cathedral by Bishop Domingo Salazar.

In search of the Best Running Mask (Part 3)


Recently I got to try the T8 RUNNING MASK which claims that it is “probably the world’s most BREATHABLE running mask.“ It is a pretty hard core statement so I decided to give it a try. After logging around 50 kms under the pouring rain, sunny humid weather and an extremely sweaty face, I’d have to agree with their claim. The T8 Face Mask provides max breathability with a 3D SpaceBrace off the mouth. It is quite comfortable as well as light weight and does not cling to my face. It also doesn’t soak up so much sweat and dries up very quickly. The T8 Face Mask is washable which is an added bonus. Together with the running masks I have previously tried - PITTA & P29, I am also quite satisfied with T8 Face Mask and highly recommend this mask for running. Aside from face masks being mandatory, it is still important to always practice safety protocols and social distancing when outdoors.
