Rizal foresaw it in 1891? (Southwest monsoon special)
It is apparent that Rizal had already thought of digging a Manila version of the Suez Canal. He envisioned it as both an entrepot of consumer goods in Asia and a flood control canal.

Mutiny Philippines: Andres Novales and his attempt at empire
Independence Day in the Philippines is near this year and this is exhibited by the many flags and tricolors waving in many establishments nationwide.  However, it must not pass our attention that in 1823, 75 years and 10 days before our own Independence Day, Andres Novales and a force of around 800 soldiers declared independence not in Kawit, Cavite but in Manila.

The only battle that Aguinaldo would lead as President of the Malolos Republic was the Battle of Marilao River, one of the most celebrated river crossings in our modern history.

Alternative Parties in the Philippines: Labor Party
What were almost neglected in the mainstream political history of our country during this period were the political parties formed in opposition to the gargantuan Nacionalista, but failed to survive to see America grant independence to her only colony in Asia.

While I was before lambasted for considering website statistics as history, is statistics in itself not part of history? Also, is this not a blog that also has its own history? History, as the second oldest profession in the world, encompasses all that has happened in the past. Well, we did take note the time that Gangnam Style broke through 1 billion and 2 billion views, respectively, right? Let us make our minds open. Again, I thank you for understanding the purpose of documenting these website statistics.
