SENATOR Imee Marcos takes her vlog followers to a Parisian adventure this weekend in super back-to-back episodes featuring her recent visit to the French capital.
First, Sen. Imee finally found the time to drop by the renowned Pére Lachaise Cemetery, the resting place of the world’s greatest thinkers and artists whose indelible work in the fields of science, politics, and the arts greatly influenced the Philippines.
There, the Ilocana lawmaker practiced 'atang' – an Ilocano ritual of food offerings intended to drive away evil and, malevolent spirits – as she offered 'alay' for the deceased icons buried in Pére Lachaise.
The Senator visited the graves of Italian composer Giochino Antonio Rossini who is known for his operas and chamber music; architect Georges-Eugéne Haussmann who is the father of urban planning; French romantic artist Eugéne Delacroix; French novelist Honoré de Balzac who is one of the favorite literary writers of former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr.; French painter Théodore Gericault; American singer Jim Morrison; French playwright Moliére; and Irish playwright and poet Oscar Wilde.
The budget-conscious Dakilang Ilokana also gave tips on how to enjoy the City Of Lights without spending too much as she made the rounds of Paris’ most affordable vintage shops and budget-friendly restaurants and cafés as well as its beautiful and breathtaking landmarks.
