Jota Cavitena is a dance that shows strong Spanish influence. This jota (is a genre of music) came from the Spanish-speaking town in Cavite named Ternate. Costume is elaborately embroidered "Maria Clara" and "barong tagalog". Castanets fashioned from Bamboo provide clacking sounds adding to the lilting music.

We went to see the Observation Deck at level 86 (total is 88) .
