Himala is a landmark 1982 film directed by Ishmael Bernal. It tells the story of a young woman in a small town in the Philippines who claims to have seen an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary and suddenly begins to exhibit healing powers. More than a movie about faith-healing, the film is an excellent commentary on Third World poverty and backward and contradictory rural customs. The lead role is superbly played by one of the country's premier dramatic actresses, Nora Aunor.

"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.
