"Sino si Jose de la Cruz at bakit siya tinaguriang Huseng Sisiw? - Joaquin"


Mindy with WikiPilipinas shirt.png

Si Jose de la Cruz ay isang Pilipinong makata at mandudula ng ika-18 at 19 na siglo. Siya umano ang naging guro at tagapayo ni Francisco Balagtas, na nagsulat ng Florante at Laura. Tinagurian umano siyang Huseng Sisiw dahil sa kaniyang pagkahilig sa pagkain nito. Hilig daw talaga niya ang pagkain ng mga bata pang hayop. Halimbawa na lamang kung siya'y kakain ng inihaw na baboy, mas nais niyang manggaling sa biik ang karne nito. Ang mga taong bilib sa kaniyang galing sa pagsusulat at nais kumuha ng kaniyang serbisyo ay kadalasang nagdadala ng mga pinatabang sisiw upang kabayaran sa kanyang mga berso.

Ipinanganak noong 21 Disyembre 1746 sa Tondo, Manila, ang ilan sa mga tanyag niyang tula ay kinabibilangan ng “Awa sa Pag-Ibig” at “Sayang na Sayang.” Itinuturing ang “Conde Rodrigo de Villas” bilang pinakamahusay niyang gawa.

Langit-lupa is chasing game, a variation of habulan where players can be immune from being tagged as long they stand on an elevated surface. Langit is the Filipino word for “heaven” and lupa is “earth”. The game's name describes how the chaser cannot reach players how are elevated from the “earth”. The it chases the other players in an attempt to tag them. Whoever gets tagged will become the it, just like in habulan. However, players can climb or step onto an elevated space such as a flight of stairs, on top of a table, or simply dangle from a jungle gym. Players who manage this are immune from being tagged. Different rules are applied to govern this limitation.
