Palawan Museum. The museum at the park.

If you want to know the place your visiting, check the museum and they will definitely provide you information’s about its people and of course the historical background, in the Philippines museum is everywhere, most City or even struggling municipality have museum that showcase their culture and things that they can be proud of.
In Puerto Princesa City, there are three museum that you can visit and in this page I’ll bring you to the oldest one that is run by a foundation, the Palawan museum is house in one of the most powerful house in the City, its building is the former City Hall of Puerto Princesa located in the historical Mendoza Park, a tribute to provincial hero name Dr. Higenio Mendoza.
To be honest, Palawan Museum have gone out of style, it is still the same since the day one I visit it many-many years ago, its exhibitions and depiction of Palawan history, culture and even anthropologic explanations are seemingly old and need to be replace, I didn’t know if there is such valuable item or precious things that can be best seen inside. When I was there just this April of 2018, there was no curator or guide explaining what you will see inside, once you pay the entrance fee they will just let you go through with exhibits from first floor up to the second floor.
There are many discoveries in Palawan in the past year, I’ve heard the Pagdanan wreck in San Vicente, the wreck in Balabac, the Elle Cave of El Nido and many other, but none of this is shown here in Palawan Museum, or maybe those artifacts belongs now to the National museum or the research or studies is still on going.
One strong exhibit inside is the Pagdiwata ritual of Tagbanua people, this piece of exhibit will explain how this full moon dance became a art tag in terms of dance in Palawan.
But one thing good about Palawan Museum is their library, if you need thorough research anything about Palawan they have it all, from old files, manuscripts and books they got it all.
Above all its still a worth a visit, museum is still the best way to know the roots of one place.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

The fun love in Momol Nights. Movie Review

Romantic Movie in Filipino setting takes another leap in Momol Nights, an iWant movie original streaming free online. The movie stars promising actress Kim Molina and Kit Thompson under the direction of Benedict Mique, Jr.
Having Molina in the cast you can expect a great comedy acting, from stage to TV series to Movies, Molina proves she can handle well in delivering all needed for a character that need to be seen and felt by the audience. And that’s the very reason I watch Momol nights, because that’s how I adore this promising actress that I’ve seen first in a theater production of “Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading lady.”

However, it was the other way around as she expects m…
