What you'll do
During Saturdays or Sundays, I can tour our visitors at the house of the Philippine National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal sharing them also the life of Dr. Rizal & other Filipino heroes during the Philippine Revolution. As a historical reenactor, I’ll be wearing either Dr. Rizal’s attire, or a Guardia Civil or a Filipino Revolutionary General of 1896 -1902 era, which they can have a wonderful souvenir shots with me in uniform in different area in Rizal’s house. At the shrine’s souvenir shop they can buy some souvenir items. Then just across the street, we can climb at “Calambanga”, the world’s largest claypot (also where the city's name originated). Then, just beside it, we can have a tour & have photo shots at the historical St. John the Baptist Church made in 1779. At 12 noon, we can have lunch in a Filipino restaurant for them to experience the Filipino delicacy. After lunch, I will tour them on my old 18th century design museum showing them my historical artifacts, uniforms & my award winning historical diorama artworks. Then they can wear some of my historically accurate Filipino uniforms during the Phil. Revolution (1896-1902), US Colonization (1902-1930s) & WW2 (1941-45) with a matching background of an old 18th century structure for their photo souvenir, letting them experience as if they were in a time travel. Then we can drink Calamba’s brewed coffee to conclude the event
