Memories And Heart Break by AskFelipinas Memories And Heart Break by AskFelipinas
"Never mind. In God's own time, the Filipinos will rise in arms against Spain and win their independence like our people. Then, and only then, shall we be able to resume our ties with the Philippines."
-Bishop Antonio Juaquin Perez of Puebla


Admin: I've been reading a lot of WW2 stuff lately, and though Mexico has nothing to do with it, that's all I've been thinking of. 


It is said that Filipinos helped the Mexicans gain their independence. Once Mexico gained independence, links to the Philippines was terminated by Spain. Apparently, according to this link, Mexico sent secret agents to the Philippines to help them start a revolution against Spain and inform the Filipinos of Mexican support. Obviously, they failed (about 50 yrs too early), hence the statement above.


In my headcanon, it would take more than a 100yrs before they see each other again. This strip happened in 1945, when Mexico sent the Escuadron 201, a Mexican fighter squadron attached to the US Army Air forces during the liberation of the island of Luzon, Philippines.


But I guess if you involve their human side/emotions on this story, at least in Mexico's POV, their reunion is more bittersweet and pretty much contradicts the image of Feli that he had preserved in his mind for the past 100+ years.


Sigh. Im just in the mood for feels. Hmn... Maybe for this month of February, instead of temporarily breaking my neutrality, maybe I should just make nothing but heart breaking headcanon stories. Just coz Im feeling sadistic. lololol! :iconohoho-plz:

That's so sad. They haven't seen each other for more than a hundred years? They're like siblings, right? I can't imagine being away from my brother for even a day. D:

Oohh, I've read that too. They said there were too many Spaniards on-guard and Spain had a iron hold on Feli at that time that's why they can't commence their 'Help, the Philippines get her independence' plan.

I'm with you on the heartbreaking headcanons thing. :XD:

Merde, you just made me cry...LOL here its funny to us:By that tie Mexico was part of too many wars and battles... all inside his territory~ Filipinos helped Mexico with his independence?? WHY HAVENT I HEARD OF THIS? Can you tell me more about that?  At least I did hear/read about those secret agents... sadly i have no way to confirm the truth of that. I wonder how different is Feli now from what he used to know... Nice drawing and portrayal as always:3

Admin: Yeah Filipinos did help, but I forgot where I found that info, if it was on the news, documentary or article. I tried looking for it, but no luck. What I remember was there were Filipino officers in the Mexican army, I forgot what rank they had but there were names given. There's lots of regular Filipino soldiers too. I think that's also one of the reasons why Mexico wanted to help Philippines fight for independence from Spain, I guess to return the favor. And one of the reasons behind the MexiPhil ship. When you think about it, its not that surprising. Filipinos and Mexican travel freely between the two countries. That info is not well known in the Philippines too. I just found out about it when I joined the fandom. 

One of the reasons I can think of, about why this info isnt well known is, Phili is gonna hate me for this ^^;, the Filipinos are probably mistaken as Mexicans. Well, it is kinda hard to tell them apart sometimes. Also, maybe because back then, the term 'Filipino' is a new concept. There's really no sense of nationality back then. The Filipinos were simply called 'Manila Men' or 'Chinos'(Chinese). So maybe, the Filipinos who were in Mexico just became Mexicans, since they cant really go back to the Philippines anymore.

I thought you meant like "armies" or #batallions# send or coformed by filipinos, but yeah there were persons of all around the world (especially filipinos like we know) in New spain. Actually in the "El periquillo sarniento" (considered the very first mexican novel) the protagonist is send as a soldier to Philliphines some time to complete his punishment. 

That and the fact the nationalities of regular mens fighting in any war arent that important dor the history books, only when you search more you find about it ... wellnow I understand better that part from that book XD

Admin: ah. No, we dont have armies in the Spanish period. Turns out, since Filipinos back then were excellent fighters, in order to avoid revolts, they werent allowed to practice their martial arts and have their own weapons. They have to be civil guards to be allowed. So thats probably how the Filipino soldiers got involved in the Mexican Revolution.

Propably...I wouldnt call it  the mexican revolution, because then it confuses with "THE Mexican Revolution"(1910-1918/20/21)
