In commemoration of the 121st anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal’s 1896 execution at Bagumbayan, the Philippine Embassy in Singapore held a simple ceremony on 29 December 2017 at the Embassy Chancery Ground.
Consul General Victorio Mario M. Dimagiba, Jr. delivered the opening remarks and a message on the life and works of Dr. Jose Rizal. Consul J. Anthony A. Reyes read one of Rizal’s famous poems, “Education Gives Luster to Motherland”, in Spanish. The wreath laying at the Rizal bust was then conducted by Consul General Dimagiba and Vice-Consul Laarni Zorayda S. Gandarosa.
A simple salo-salo of Filipino food was shared by the Embassy officers, staff and the attached agencies to culminate the Rizal Day celebration. END
