7 of the Greatest Love Stories in Philippine History

7 of the Greatest Love Stories in Philippine History


Of all of Jose Rizal’s women, Leonor Rivera was perhaps his truest and greatest love. Rivera, a native of Camiling in Tarlac, belonged to a landed family. As near-cousins, they first met during Rivera’s 13th birthday party. The two kept in contact through letters even as Rizal traveled around the world. After Rizal was named a filibustero, Rivera’s parents and Rizal’s father barred them from meeting. Thus, Rivera went on to marry an Englishman named Henry Charles Kipping and died on Aug. 28, 1893, after giving birth to their second child. Before her untimely death, she requested to be buried with the love letters Rizal had sent her.


Flaviano Yengko is often remembered as one of the youngest generals during the Philippine Revolution and the "Hero of Salitran." Originally, however, the unsung hero didn’t want to fight in the Revolution. At the time, Yengko had been finishing his law course and was courting a young Caviteña who reciprocated his feelings. The young lady’s father, however, preferred another suitor who had already fought in battles. According to Ambeth Ocampo, to deter his daughter from choosing Yengko, the father would then say, “[He] does not know anything but to dress himself like a woman and is incapable of picking up a gun and fighting like a man for our cause.” These very words soon reached the ears of Yengko who took action and joined Aguinaldo’s revolutionary army. He accomplished his duties and fought in a number of battles before his valor was noticed by Aguinaldo himself. He rose through the ranks and was soon a brigadier general. During the Battle of Salitiran, he was fatally wounded and brought to the hospital where he was nursed by his sweetheart. Sadly, he succumbed to his wounds and died on March 3, 1897, at the age of 23.


The Ruins, one of Talisay’s most famous tourist spots, was built as a symbol of love. Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson, a baron of a 440-hectare plantation, had been instantly smitten upon meeting Maria Braga during one of his travels. He asked for her hand in marriage, and brought her to Talisay to start a family. Tragedy struck while they were expecting their 11th child as Braga slipped in the bathroom and died. To immortalize the love of his life, Lacson built a mansion in front of his ancestral home. The mansion was inspired by Braga, from the engraved letter M on the entrance to the marble-like concrete similar to Braga’s alabaster skin. Sadly, the mansion was burned for three days to keep the Japanese from using it as their headquarters during the war.


In 1872, Cambodia's King Norodom I made a two-week state visit to Manila. He was given the typical pleasantries: a 21-gun salute and a dinner hosted by the governor-general. His itinerary also included a tour around the country in modern-day Tagaytay and Pampanga. During his visit, the king fell in love with a certain Josefa Roxas y Manio, a member of the prominent Roxas clan. Ambeth Ocampo writes that the king tried to win over the Bulakeña by offering a gold jewel as big as a mangosteen. He then proposed to Roxas, but she declined, using religion and her duty to her aging parents as an excuse. With this, the king made his way back to Cambodia alone, but left the priceless piece of jewelry with Roxas.


Growing up, Manuel Quezon was a dandy—well-dressed, suave, and a ladies man. This all changed when he started to notice his cousin Aurora Aragon. The two engaged in an intense yet playful courtship. Once, Quezon personally fetched zarzuela singer Atang de la Rama on horseback to serenade Aragon. On another occasion, Quezon decided to put Aragon’s love to the test. He paid her a visit while wearing orange blossoms around his neck. When she noticed and asked why, Quezon replied that he’d just been married. Aragon immediately burst into tears, realizing how much she loved Quezon. The two decided to fast track their engagement and soon they eloped in Hong Kong. The marriage lasted until Quezon's death in 1944. Five years later, Aragon was assassinated by a group of armed men while on her way to open the Quezon Memorial Hospital. The two are buried close to each other at the Quezon Memorial Shrine.


The story goes: One night at a party in Vigan, the lights momentarily went out. When they came back on, onlookers found 16-year-old Alicia Syquia in the secure embrace of 31-year-old Elpidio Quirino. In those times, the two had to marry to avoid scandal. As dowry for the marriage, Syquia’s father offered the family home, known today as the Syquia Mansion Museum. Unlike other couples, Quirino and Syquia only wrote letters to each other after they were married (Quirino worked as a congressman in Manila while Syquia remained in Vigan). The love letters of the two are displayed in the Syquia Mansion Museum. In them, Quirino signed “Your faithful and loving husband, who embraces you and kisses you.” Sadly, Syquia and three of her children were killed when caught in a crossfire during the liberation of Manila. Proving his undying love, Quirino personally dug a grave in Paco Cemetery and carried them there—never speaking about the ordeal again.


Aristocratic couple Salvador Araneta and Victoria López de Araneta’s love story is particularly poignant as it withstood war and destruction. In 1933, the Aranetas built their home in Mandaluyong, then a far-flung area. The stately European-style home was named the Victoneta and had 33 rooms, a private chapel, and luxurious interiors. When war broke out, the Japanese confiscated the grand house while the Aranetas retreated to Malabon. To keep their family afloat, the couple sold their belongings including luxuries such as clothes, shoes, bed linens, and curtains. Toward the end of the war, the Victoneta was bombed and the couple never looked back. They instead focused on business and established numerous companies (some remain the biggest today). Later in life, the Aranetas faced another challenge: Martial Law. Since they were already in San Francisco visiting their daughter, the two decided to stay put and manage their businesses from there. The couple passed away in the ‘80s, within a couple of years of each other.

15 Rare dingen die wij Nederlanders doen tijdens het groeten

15 Rare dingen die wij Nederlanders doen tijdens het groeten

1 Een hele lange 'hoooooi' zeggen bij het weggaan

2 Praten tijdens het geven van drie zoenen

3 Of überhaupt de aankondiging: "Gaan we zoenen?"

4 Over kussen gesproken, WAT IS TOCH DE ETIQUETTE?

Vrouwen kussen vrouwen, vrouwen kussen mannen, mannen kussen vrouwen, maar mannen kussen geen mannen.

5 Als je elkaar twee keer tegenkomt zeggen: "Bij de derde keer trakteren!"

6 Vrouwen die elkaar hysterisch om de nek vallen

En er dan ook lekker bij gillen en een beetje rondspringen.

7 Twee keer groeten

Hoi hoi, doei doei, doeg doeg, dag dag, hé hallo!

8 Motorrijders en vaarders groeten elkaar al-tijd

Net zoals buschauffeurs trouwens. Het is een geheime code. Even dat handje opsteken.

9 Op verjaardagen hoor je ie-de-reen te begroeten

In plaats van iedereen af te lebberen, kun je het ook makkelijk doen: "Ik doe even naar iedereen een zwaai hoor!"

10 Groeten doen uit een bepaalde plaats

We houden gewoon enorm van de groetjes doen!

11 We bulderen zelfs door iemands telefoongesprek heen: "Doe maar de groetjes!"

12 Lekker origineel zijn in een emailgroet

"Met een vrolijke groet" of "xxx". Altijd gezellig.

13 Heel lang uit het raampje zwaaien als je weggaat

En degene die je uitzwaaien (meestal je moeder) blijven nog lang op de straat je uitzwaaien totdat je écht, helemaal, compleet de hoek om bent.

14 Heel (heel, héél) lang handen schudden

15 Tóch nog even een heel levensverhaal vertellen bij het weggaan

We hadden al "doei doei" gezegd?!

Why Today’s Teens Aren’t in Any Hurry to Grow Up

     Why Today’s Teens Aren’t in Any Hurry to Grow Up

A “moderate life technique” is more typical in times and places where families have less youngsters and invest more energy developing every kid’s development and improvement. This is a decent depiction of our present culture in the U.S., when the normal family has two youngsters, children can begin playing composed games as preschoolers and getting ready for school can start as right on time as grade school. This isn’t a class wonder; I found in my investigation that the pattern of growing up more gradually doesn’t separate between adolescents from less advantaged foundations and those from wealthier families.
A “quick life procedure,” then again, was the more typical child rearing methodology in the mid-twentieth century, when less work sparing gadgets were accessible and the normal lady had four youngsters. Thus, kids expected to fight for themselves sooner. At the point when my uncle disclosed to me he ran thin plunging with his companions when he was eight, I asked why his folks gave him authorization.
At that point I recalled: His folks had six other kids (with one more to come), ran a ranch and it was 1947. The guardians expected to concentrate on everyday survival, not ensuring their children had violin lessons by age five.
Is growing up gradually great or terrible?
Life history hypothesis expressly takes note of that moderate and quick life systems are adjustments to a specific situation, so each isn’t innately “great” or “terrible.” Likewise, seeing the patterns in high schooler conduct as “great” or “awful” (or as teenagers being more “develop” or “juvenile,” or more “mindful” or “lethargic”) misses the 10,000 foot view: slower advancement toward adulthood. What’s more, it’s not simply adolescents – youngsters are less inclined to stroll to and from school and are all the more firmly administered, while youthful grown-ups are taking more time to sink into vocations, wed and have kids.
“Adulting” – which alludes to youthful grown-ups performing grown-up obligations as though this were wonderful – has now entered the vocabulary. The whole formative way from earliest stages to full adulthood has moderated.
Be that as it may, similar to any adjustment, the moderate life methodology has exchange offs. It’s certainly something worth being thankful for that less teenagers are engaging in sexual relations and drinking liquor. Be that as it may, shouldn’t something be said about when they head off to college and abruptly enter a domain where sex and liquor are wild? For instance, albeit less 18-year-olds now hit the bottle hard, 21-to 22-year-olds still hit the bottle hard at generally an indistinguishable rate from they have since the 1980s. One examination found that teenagers who quickly expanded their hitting the bottle hard were more in danger of liquor reliance and change issues than the individuals who figured out how to drink over a more drawn out timeframe. Deferring presentation to liquor, at that point, could make youthful grown-ups less arranged to manage drinking in school.
The same may be valid for youngsters who don’t work, drive or go out much in secondary school. Indeed, they’re most likely more averse to get into a mischance, yet they may likewise land at school or the work environment less arranged to settle on choices all alone.
School directors portray understudies who can’t do anything without calling their folks. Bosses stress that more youthful representatives do not have the capacity to work autonomously. Despite the fact that I found in my examinations that iGen manifests a more grounded hard working attitude than millennials, they’ll likely likewise require more direction as they change into adulthood.
Indeed, even because of the drawbacks, it’s imaginable helpful that adolescents are investing more energy growing socially and sincerely before they date, have intercourse, drink liquor and work for pay. The key is to ensure that youngsters in the end get the chance to build up the abilities they will require as grown-ups: freedom, alongside social and basic leadership aptitudes.
For guardians, this may mean endeavoring to drive your young people out of the house more. Else, they may very well need to live with you until the end of time.

Why Your Ears Can Tell More Than Your Eyes

                   Why Your Ears Can Tell More Than Your Eyes

With regards to seeing how somebody really feels, it might be best to close your eyes and simply tune in, another examination appears.
Sympathy enables individuals to distinguish the feelings, musings and sentiments of others. To do this, individuals have a tendency to concentrate on the trading of words, as well as a man’s outward appearances and other nonverbal signs.
Yet, another examination from the American Psychological Association recommends that you could attempt to do excessively. Indeed, depending on a mix of vocal and facial signs may not be the best technique for understanding the feelings or aims of others, the examination said. [5 Ways Your Emotions Influence Your World (and Vice Versa)]
“Social and natural sciences throughout the years have exhibited the significant want of people to associate with others and the variety of abilities individuals have to observe feelings or goals,” think about creator Michael Kraus, a right hand teacher of authoritative conduct at Yale University, said in an announcement. “In any case, within the sight of both will and expertise, individuals frequently mistakenly see others’ feelings.”

The new research found that individuals who concentrate exclusively on tuning in to someone else’s voice — including what the individual says and vocal prompts, for example, pitch, rhythm, speed and volume — could better sympathize with that person.
In the investigation, the specialists analyzed how more than 1,800 people spoke with others. A few members were askedto tune in yet not take a gander at each other, while others were made a request to look however not tune in. What’s more, sometimes, the members were permitted to both look and tune in while speaking with each other.
What’s more, a portion of the members tuned in to a recorded cooperation between two outsiders that was perused to them by a modernized voice without the typical passionate emphases of human correspondence.
By and large, the examination discovered members could decipher the feelings of their accomplice all the more precisely when they just tuned in to the next individual and didn’t concentrate on outward appearances. Besides, tuning in to the automated voice ended up being the minimum compelling for precisely perceiving feeling.
“I think while looking at these discoveries with respect to how therapists have examined feeling, these outcomes may shock. Many trial of passionate insight depend on precise view of faces,” Kraus said in the announcement. “What we find here is that maybe individuals are giving careful consideration to the face — the voice may have a great part of the substance important to see others’ inner states precisely. The discoveries propose that we ought to concentrate more on examining vocalizations of feeling.”
Albeit outward appearances can enlighten a ton regarding how somebody is feeling, Kraus said that individuals are great at utilizing outward appearances to veil their feelings. Likewise, watching and listening may lessen compassionate precision since more data isn’t generally better, and endeavoring to do both in the meantime can really make it harder to comprehend the significance behind a man’s vocal emphasis and outward appearance.
“Listening matters,” Kraus said. “In reality considering what individuals are stating and the courses in which they say it can, I trust, prompt enhanced comprehension of others at work or in your own connections.”
