I’m writing this blog because it’s Jose Rizal Day today.
I’ll tell you all I know about Dr. Jose Rizal.
Who is Jose Rizal? Jose Rizal is our national hero.
When and where was he born?
He was born on June 19, 1861 at Calamba City, Laguna, Philippines. He was the seventh child of Teodora Alonzo y Quintos. He has 1 brother and 9 sisters.
Why was he famous? Dr. Jose Rizal was famous because he is our national hero and he is a doctor. He was killed by a Spaniard firing squad. He died on Dec. 30, 1896. The Spaniards thought Jose Rizal was going to escape so they shot him.
What is El Filibisterismo about?
El Filibisterismo is the novel that Dr. Jose Rizal wrote. The novel’s language is Spanish. The characters in the novel represent the different classes of people in his time.
Simoun is disguising himself as a rich jeweler.
Basilio the eldest son of Sisa.
Isagani is Basilio’s best friend.
Paulita Gomez is Isagani’s girlfriend.
Macaraig is Isagani’s classmate in UST.
Father Florentino is a priest and Isagani’s Godfather.
Juli is Kabesang Tales’s youngest daughter and Basilo’s girlfriend.
Maria Clara is Crisostomo’s girlfriend and was chosen to be a nun.
Captain Tiago is Maria’s step father and Basilo’s foster father.
Father Bernardo Salvi is a parish priest.
Father Millon is a Physics teacher of UST.
We should all thank Dr. Jose Rizal , Andres Bonifacio and all the other Filipino heroes for driving the Spaniards away and helping gain our freedom.
If Jose Rizal were alive today and comes over for dinner, I’ll make him a Dinuguan and Puto dish because it’s a delicious Filipino dish.
It all started when my sister and I joined the Philippine Blog Awards a few months back. I was a finalist in 4 categories: Food and Beverage Luzon Level , Food and Beverage National Level, Bloggers Choice and Readers’ Choice categories. The Philippine Blog Awards organizers sent me an email telling me that I was a finalist among many qualifiers. They told me to make a 2 minute speech in case I win. It took me 2 days to do it. I was not able to use it , but my mom told me not to waste it so here it is:
Hi everyone! My name is Enrico Feria. I’m the writer of The Junior Chef. I started writing my blog when I was eliminated from Junior Master Chef . My blog is like my brain because I write all about my memorable days. My blog is about the food I made, the food I ate, what I learned and my best memories. I love cooking because I like creating my own new dishes. A long time ago, I was dreaming of having my own restaurant named Enrico’s Dragon Chop House. I hope to see that day come. Anyway, thank you for choosing me as a finalist in 4 categories. I really appreciate it.
I didn’t win but I’m still happy because I was the youngest finalist. (The trophy is a carabao with a man on top.) I didn’t win an IPAD 2 in their promo either because we left early.
Anyway, thank you to all the 368 people who voted for me in the Reader’s choice category. I am very happy. Each one of you gave me reasons to keep blogging.
Win or lose, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that I gained a lot of experience . I also learned that there are people out there who love what I do. Thank you indeed!
