Think pieces on the state of Philippine cinema and television aren’t lacking in the interwebs.

However, sometimes, the most common place of things…

Glimpse: Remembering the “Supremo”
by Wilhelm Tan
Glimpse // November 30, 2013

The Philippines, in its rich and diverse culture, has produced a wide variety of heroes. There is the warrior-chief from Mactan, Lapu-Lapu; the three martyr priests, collectively called Gomburza; and of course, the nationalistic writer, Jose Rizal. Each of these heroes exemplified nationalism and love for country; however, none may have epitomized patriotism more than…

Students are probably the world’s luckiest lot. They enjoy privileges from half-price discounts to class suspensions. Most are supported by parental allowances. Lasallians, too, are luckier than some. Being able to choose their preferred class hours is an enviable student right — that is, the right to avoid ungodly 8 AM classes and familiar “terror…

What does it mean to be a Filipino?
by Jeanne Marie Cornista, John Sarao and Shi Ailyn
Glimpse // August 7, 2013

The concept of national identity is a tricky one. Asking what it means to be Filipino is basically the same as finding what it is that brings 94.85 million people together. Is it the fact that we share the same land? 7,107 islands beg to differ (at least when it’s low tide). Is it sharing…
