One of the rare times I turn the TV on and I chance upon “Storyline,” a late night show in ABS-CBN.
Amelia Lapeña-Bonifacio, Mother of Philippine Puppetry.
I didn’t know there was even one.
She’s 81 now.
There’s a theater and museum named after her, built under FVR’s government.
I hope her daughter and granddaughter continues puppetry.
I hope the theater and museum would never close down.
I remembered that once upon a time, I dreamt to be a “dokumentarista” so I can cover stories like these.
Now, go and watch a puppet show HERE.
Poor you if you haven’t seen The Sound of Music even once in your life.
