Former UP Student Council Chair and now Ilocos Norte Sangguniang Panlalawigan Member Kris Ablan sent me 3 copies of this novel calendar.
More than the visual feast the calendar offers, it is my favorite because of what it represents.
Kris writes in his blog:
The project was actually conceptualized many, many years ago when my dad came out with calendars with his face as the main picture (like all politicians with calendar giveaways). I thought to myself, “What if people didn’t want to look at your face every day.” “What if they just wanted to see scenery.”
If a politician wants to be “remembered,” why doesn’t he just put his name at a corner of the calendar and put some worthy pictures instead.
