Malaysia: Hello from Kota Kinabalu!

What a way to start my blog, writing about my journeys in some really exotic place!

Yup, I took advantage of those AirAsia trips and it's a real bargain. I'm here in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia right now which is the capital of Sabah. I took a ferry to Manukan Island yesterday which is part of the Tungku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, Malaysia's premiere marine sanctuary.

It's a 15 minute speed boat ride from the ferry terminal. As soon as you left the terminal, you already saw corals below and right at the port of Manukan, you had schools of fish greeting you. At the beach, you swam with fish as well! Great beach! And a really great experience!

I went back to Trekker's Lodge (which is a bed and breakfast place) where I was staying, my way of living the backpacker culture for the next few days. For dinner, I had nasi lemak (chicken with coconut milk, pandan rice and sambal sauce) and kiwi lou (just as I did the previous night) at a seaside cafe and enjoyed a really great view of the Sabah sunset.

I'm off to Brunei today. I will take a ferry to Labuan Island, then take another ferry to Muara in Brunei.

Great to hear we have a new Pope! Viva il Papa! Anyway, have to rush! See you!

Part 2: Ferry from Kota Kinabalu to Brunei
Part 3: I saw the Sultan of Brunei!
Part 4: Kampong Ayer, water villages from Brunei's past
Part 5: Still in Negara Brunei Darussalam
Part 6: It's home for me tomorrow

Tentative List to the Philippine Registry of Cultural Property (PRECUP)

With Republic Act No. 10066 - National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009 in place, all structures 50 years or older, structures with historical markers, and all structures designed by National Artists (regardless of age) are now presumed to be declared and cannot be demolished or altered without the permission of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). So those contained in the list below are among those already protected by law.

Representatives of the Heritage Conservation Society (HCS), ICOMOS Philippines, NCCA, National Museum, National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) and Department of Tourism (DOT) met in February 2011 to discuss among many others, which sites should be formally declared. We thus came up with an unofficial tentative list similar to UNESCO's tentative list. Most of the sites are actually clusters or serial listings which have specified or several representative structures under each listing.

Structures that are already declared are not in this list. This list will continue to grow as more suggestions come in. Please feel free to comment.

Note: Historic Town Center refers to the Town Plaza, Municipio and Church Complex. Historic Town means that the many of the houses are still intact. You can also suggest Historic Town Plazas when only the plaza is intact

Philippine Registry of Cultural Property (PRECUP) - Built Heritage

With Republic Act No. 10066 - National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009 in place, all structures 50 years or older, structures with historical markers, and all structures designed by National Artists (regardless of age) are now presumed to be declared and cannot be demolished or altered without the permission of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). This is a list of nationally declared cultural and historical structures and sites in the Philippines. I compiled this list because it is extremely difficult to navigate NCCA's PRECUP because you have to download Excel files and search through them. It is not yet a real database.

The list below may be incomplete (updated 05/13/2022). If there are any additions or corrections to the list, please make a comment to this entry. This list does not include natural properties in the World Heritage List and National Integrated Protected Area System (NIPAS). For natural heritage, click here.

All structures with markers from the Philippines Historical Committee, National Historical Commission, National Historical Institute, etc. are considered marked sites

Please see pertinent provisions of RA10066

The criteria used in evaluating potential entries in the National Registry of Historic Structures are as follows:

1. Properties strongly associated with important historical events or personages and other illustrious Filipinos or whose owner had achieved an enduring contribution toward the enrichment of Filipino historico-cultural heritage.

2. Properties of architectural, cultural, historical, scientific and social significance, including those that depict local aesthetic values or their builders, and those related to a significant historico-cultural experience of the Filipino people;

4. Properties such as gates, walls, forts, towers, bastions, ramparts, parapets, bridges or palisades that stand out as monuments to the artistry, craftsmanship and industry of Filipino artisans and laborers who were responsible for their construction and serve as mute witnesses to the heroic spirit of the Filipinos of yesteryears;

5. Properties which were the site of the first establishments in the Philippines such as the site where the first printing press was built, first commercial house, first theater, first school, first transportation office, etc.;

6. Groups or clusters of buildings or structures, or a whole precinct, district, town center, including plazas, gardens, historic ruins, streets, bridges, fences, visual corridors, vista points and other open spaces and the immediate environs that are given importance because of their setting and not due to their individual elements or characteristics; and

7. All sites and structures must at least be 50 years old and display a high degree of authenticity to qualify for consideration.

▪ NATIONAL SHRINES: Historic sites or objects hallowed or honored for their history or association, e.g. the Rizal and Shrines and the Mabini Shrines;

▪ NATIONAL MONUMENTS: Objects, natural features or areas of specific historic interest that are set aside by local or national government as public properties, e.g. the Rizal and Bonifacio Monuments, and the Walls of Intramuros;

▪ NATIONAL LANDMARKS: Places or objects that are associated with an event, achievement, characteristics or modification that presents a turning point or stage in history;

▪ HERITAGE HOUSE: Houses of ancestry with notable historical and cultural significance, e.g. Syquia Mansion, Vigan City, Ilocos Sur; Houses in Silay City, Negros Occidental;

▪ HISTORIC SITES: Natural areas or places with historical significance, and places recognized, marked, or declared such as Biak-na-bato, San Miguel, Bulacan; Pamitinan Cave, Montalban, Rizal;
