    SUNDIAL OF HISTORY

    by davidjo Written Jan 27, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Juan Sajid de Leon Imao was the artist who made this very interesting sculpture that can be found near the Singapore Embassy in Bonifacio Global City. In my opinion this is probably the best of the many sculptures to be found in BGC as it is large with many characters on the red cement ground, which represents a giant sundial. "Kasaysayan bawat oras" is the name of the sculpture and it means something like 'history every hour".

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bonifacio High Street is unlike any other street in the country. It is only perhaps 400 m long but it is wide with many sculptures and fountains in the middle. Along the sides of the street there are many upmarket shops and restaurants.

    In Bonifacio Global City you could take an hour walk and see all the works of art. Head out of the terminal and walk down 32nd Street and you will see "TRANSFORMATION " on your left at the intersection of 5th Avenue. Continue to where the road Meets Rizal Drive and on the left you will see "ANG SUPREMO".. Continue along Rizal Drive and when you reach the Mind Museum look to your right and you will see "THE TREES". When you reach the end of Rizal drive you will see "PASASALAMAT".

    BONIFACIO GLOBAL CITY, A CHANGE FROM MAKATI

    by davidjo Written Jan 26, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bonifacio Global City (BGC as it is known as) is a development on some disputed land between Makati and Taguig, but i have looked at the map and decided to include it on my Taguig pages. The dreaded Bonifacio Fort was here before but Bonifacio Land Corporation made a successful bid to develop the area along with their partners. There are many skyscrapers housing apartments, offices and hotels, as well as two shopping areas, market! Market! and Bonifacio High street. Most trendy restaurants, bars, clubs, and retail outlets are on Bonifacio's High Street, but they are dotted around the whole area. There is also the Mind Museum to keep you entertained, a few parks, sculptures etc. You will not find any tricycles here and only a few jeepneys run from the transport terminal, as it is mainly a/c vans that ply the routes in and out of BGC. the area is still being developed and you will see many sky-scrapers still being constructed.

    BGC -- SCULPTURE---ANG SUPREMO

    by davidjo Written Jan 27, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ang Supremo is a brass and bronze statue was created by Ben Hur Villanueva as a tribute to Andres Bonifacio. From the distance it looks as if Bonifacio is raising his hand with a sword but when you get closer he is actually holding a crumpled piece of paper in his hand which is actually a cedula. The artist claims that Bonafacio became a hero, not because of his armed revolt but because he was intelligent. Villanueva also said the tearing of the cedula made during the “Cry at Pugadlawin” in August 1896 is a very important identification at that time, representing a blow to the colonial rulers.

    A PLAYGROUND FOR KIDS

    by davidjo Written Jan 27, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Terra 28th is located just south of Bonifacio High Street along 28th Avenue. It is a large playground for kids with the usual swings and see-saws but there is an area allocated to some traditional Filipino games such as Patintero, Piko, Luksong Baka, etc. Maybe the younger kids have to be taught these games by the older generation as they are not so popular these days. There are also jogging paths in the park which is open from 6 am to 10 pm.

    WHAT KIND OF PLATOON IS THIS ????

    by davidjo Written Jan 27, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Bonifacio High Street there is a piece of art by Reg Yuson called 'PRESENCE'. It consists of many pipes standing in platoon formation which represents the military when they were based at Fort Bonifacio. The floor mounted chimes represents one's transient presence in relation to space and time. The chimes are supposed to give good vibes that resonate through the park.

    Kasalikasan is a nature Park in Bonifacio Global City specially designed for certain events and there is a small amphitheater there, but the place is popular for couple to have their photos taken on their wedding day. It is rather a small area with a few paths and some trees, but beautiful indeed for the newlyweds.

    A MUSEUM ABOUT YOUR MIND !!!

    by davidjo Written Jan 28, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At Bonifacio Global City you will find an amazing museum that is dedicated to the mind! It is actually a project of the Bonifacio Art Foundation which is a non profit organization, but the entrance fee is rather steep. The exhibition follows five aspects, Atom, Earth, Life, Universe and Technology. It is uniquely Filipino as nearly all the exhibits have been designed by Filipino Artists and fabricated with close links to scientists.
