The 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution (also known as the EDSA Revolution, or People Power) was a four-day series of non-violent mass demonstrations that toppled the Marcos dictatorship and installed Corazon C. Aquino as president in 1986. The revolution, which ran from February 22 to February 25, was considered as the forerunner of nonviolent demonstrations around the world such as those in Eastern Europe. The revolution was named after Epifanio de los Santos Avenue or EDSA, where the majority of the protests took place. It is also known as the Yellow Revolution, after Aquino's campaign color.

Ask Mindy


"Hi, Mindy! It's February, and I need ideas on how to celebrate Valentine's Day at home with my loved one without spending too much. We’re on a tight budget, but we still want to make this occasion as special as possible. Do you have any recommendation? Thanks! - Mark"


Hello, Mark,

There's always something special that you and your loved one can do to celebrate this occasion without shelling out a lot of money. For instance, try spending Valentine's Day at either of your homes. Help each other prepare simple dishes. If both of you don't know how to cook, this is probably the best time to learn together. Then, plop up on a couch and do a DVD or Netflix marathon of your favorite movies while feasting on the food you both worked hard for to prepare.

If you want to spend the day outdoors, host a picnic in your own backyard. Grab a picnic basket and fill it out with snacks like bread, canned coffee or juice and some chips. Enjoy an afternoon or evening of picnic there.

For something out of the ordinary, head off to a museum that interests both of you. There are a number of museums that offer virtual tours. It would be fun to discover and brush up on some art, history or even science, as if you're just in a field trip.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! -Mindy

Aman Sinaya is the primordial Tagalog goddess of the sea and protector of fishermen. She was one of the only three beings who existed when the Earth was still young, the other two being Bathala, god of the sky, and Amihan, the North Wind. She plays an important role in the Tagalog creation story. Aman Sinaya and Bathala were rivals. They would pit their powers against one another—Aman Sinaya sent tempests into the sky and Bathala retaliated by hurling giant boulders from the mountaintops. These boulders would create the Philippine archipelago.
