It's Almost Like Romeo and Juliet...

[Welp, life happened again... ] It was supposed to be the month of love, so that meant closing out with a love story. A tragic one involving a man who loved his country and a great deal of women. Jose Rizal was a playboy, yes, but there's always the girl that got away... Or was taken away by disapproving parents. Therein lies the tragedy.

Bicolano Origins - Creations Anew

Producer's note: We're sorry this episode has come so late to your feeds. Our host had a family emergency and did the most logical (and most Filipino thing) and put off the show to be with her loved ones.  To stay in the loop of any more delayed or cancelled episodes, the best way is to follow us on Twitter @miscellanymedia

Today, Marcy gives you a retelling of the Bicolano creation myth. Which may be a story you already know.
