Today is a Philippine holiday because we are celebrating the death anniversary of our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. This year 2011 we are also celebrating Rizal 150, a national campaign celebrating the 150th birthday of this great Malay. For foreign readers here’s a previous post for a brief recap of who this guy wass, click here.

So as a commemoration, here’s my list of the best things that came to me this whole year. This is my sort of year in review. ^_^

Man of the Year – Lourd De Veyra

A multi talented crazy man, won three Palanca Awards (that’s Oscars for Philippine Literature, maintains a high-octane crazy blog, that  was turned into a book sort of compilations, he’s a TV news anchor, a vocalist for a band, a columnist for many magazines and dailies, writes and composes songs, a poet, writer, socialogist, political analyst, critic and many more. This guy is as versatile to Jose Rizal was, only with a little dose of craziness.

Book of the Year – This is a Crazy Planets by Lourd De Veyra

The only exception. I promised myself never to read a novel in 2011, which I kept. However this book is not a novel but a compilation of De Veyra’s spot.ph blog. This is the only book I read this year, and probably the craziest of all time.

Album of the Year – Rizal Rock (OPM collaborations)

The best songs in life are free. Top Filipino OPM artist bound together to make an album dedicated to our national hero. Music couldn’t get any better than that, and its absolutely free! to download and listen, click me:
