" The Aliw theatre is the flagship entertainment venue of Star Parks Corporation, the owners and developers of the country’s only all-weather theme park, known as the Star City.

The statue of Roman Ongpin stands right at the heart of Chinatown and beside Binondo Church. Known for being a patriot and a philanthropist. Roman Ongpin was a true Manileno at heart.

He was jailed for conspiracy during the war between the Spaniards and the Americans, but was also released after. He became the president for Casa Asilo de Invalidos, La proteccion de la Infancia and Gota de leche to name a few. He died on the 10th of Decembre 1912.
" San Lorenzo had a Chinese father and Tagalog mother who lived in the Parian district of Manila. In 1636, Ruiz was implicated in a murder. He sought help from his Dominican superiors .

Lorenzo Ruiz was headed straight into the arms of death. "
Beside the statue is also another commemorative monument in remembrance to those patriots who served the country.
