The Philippines never missed out this tour as basketball is the country’s top sport and being able to play on court with Stephen Curry is one of the Filipino youth’s most awaited basketball experience.

Reliving the History with Zooper Cruise

National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal once said, “Ang taong hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan, hindi makakarating sa patutunguhan.” (He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.) This adage is a constant reminder for each one of us to look back where we came from, so that we may learn from the lessons of the past.

Our country has a very rich and colorful history and multi-racial culture as told through history books, literary works, various landmarks, and from the stories passed along by our ancestors through the generations. We may ask ourselves, “How much do we know about our history and culture?” A lot. Or maybe not that much? Decades have passed and most of us can only remember so much about our history and culture relying on books and multimedia sources, among others.

One of the most prominent landmark mentioned in Philippine history books is the Pasig River. National hero and novelist Dr. Jose Rizal even mentioned it in his two books Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Due to its geographical location which cuts through several Metro Manila cities, Pasig River became the gateway to the country’s historical, cultural and social life.

Through the years, industrialization has brought so much progress to various sectors of the government and the surrounding nearby communities, thus, Pasig River slowly lost its beauty as more factories were built along or near the banks. But with the recent rehabilitation efforts in place, bit by bit, the Pasig River is starting to gain back its glory.
