Planning to Retire Soon!

If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

Have You Heard of Fr. Rene Javellana, S.J.?


During the last couple of months I have been writing about well-known members of the Javellana clan. My inspiration is that I am one of the thousands descendants of the Javellana clan via my father side of my family as documented by www.javellana.wordpress.com.

The name of Fr. Rene Javellana, S.J. was brought to my attention just recently via comments from a reader of my blog on my Javellana ancestry. I have heard of Fr Javellana and his works but have not meet him personally. Here's an excerpt from his biography from wikifilipinas.org

Rene Javellana, S.J., is a Jesuit priest, writer, liturgical artist and art historian. He is currently an associate (Thomas Gasson) professor at Ateneo de Manila University, where he is also director of the Fine Arts Program and creative director of Jesuit Communications. He holds a master’s degree in theology.

His research interests include colonial architecture and art in Asia; renaissance imprints and cultural dissemination; heritage conservation; popular religion and globalization; art, spirituality and religion; contemporary visual arts; art and communication theory; film, media and society; and online education. His inclination to the study of arts was for the reason that he considers art as a catalyst and mediator of cultural change. His interests lie in the intersection of cultures and institutions and the intersection of eras.

Here's an interesting TED video that he gave about the SELFIE:
