All saints / souls day

A time to remember and pay tribute to those who have departed... A time to remember when they where here with us... A time thank for the wonderful life they’ve shared with us…

spur of the moment

This had been on my mind since the day I found myself not “that really” scared of the dark… These shots were done after the pseudo product shoot for the site I’m currently doing.

I lit up 20 little candles that were supposed to be our stock should there be power interruptions.. I got scared too!!!

I was the only human species awake in the neighborhood during that time. felt the cold wind that was a bit cold however, I was sweating.

I had to put off the fan and the light… geez… and I didn’t notice the sun is starting to rise…

*those objects were presents from my mom (wooden box) , ex-officemates (sanrio figures) and best bud (the scary doll).

in disguise...

I had an odontectomy last September 22. It took 3 hours to slice my gums, cut some bones just to take that historical impacted wisdom tooth and stitched the gums. It was a shocking experience. I never had a surgery in my entire life. Even I’ve been in and out from the hospital on my younger years; I never experienced being stitched wide awake…. Good Lord I survived the three-hour ordeal..

I thought I’ll be having a trip to heaven that day. The doctor even prayed before the procedure. God knows how scared I was. I feel so blessed of having a surgeon like her.

While trying to recuperate, for a few days I watched some movies, anime and tv series… one of those was House M.D. these lines caught my attention, on Season 1- Episode 9:

John Henry Giles: How many of those pills you take in?
Dr. House: I’m in pain.
John Henry Giles: Aren’t we all?

*John is an outgoing patient and Dr. House is a pain reliever dependent due to his leg injury. He feels pain most of the time.

Graphika Manila 2008

Last saturday, my brother and I attended the one of my most awaited events of the year. I always look forward on this event. I believe that somehow this would make me inspired and awe with the works of the masters of graphics. It is a conference and a gathering of people, as what I know with “the same ideals” in life. Ideals and aim to express oneself through graphics.

That day was my second time to attend it and the best lesson I’ve learned came from Robert Alejandro was:

“Be a part of the solution.”

He shared that the “Art is-kool” stopped airing on 1994 and left the Probe team to work abroad… with a VERY GOOD PAY. But he came back after some months and realized he could do something more in our country.

Money really can’t buy everything. Even you have everything, but when you’re not enjoying with what you’re doing, nothing will happen.. it will be just a routine and nothing more.

He believes that graphic artist can do something; he is not really saying that you don’t have to leave the Philippines but to realize that there is more to do here. [pro bono, charity works, etc.. something for a cause.]

[projects of Acid house]

The organizer also invited Kristophe Vergne of Pixar Animation, who talked how they produced those 3d films especially the “Ratatoille”. Acid house, talked about how they got the projects from ABS-CBN and etc. Collision theory, shared something about their commissioning and freelancing jobs. Simone Legno, on how he created his characters and made a business out of it.

[Robert Alejandro, Caliph8 and Aj of Collision theory, Kristophe Vergne of Pixar,
Simone Legno of Tokidoki, Pauline Vicencio and Ivan Despi of Acid House]

All in all.. it was a fully loaded inspiration and wisdom!

*by the way.. this is also known as the gathering of the weirdos... you know what i mean.. just kidding.. ^_^

Sep 19, 2008


Since I was a kid I am so fascinated with this kind of house… I remember we had our own hut but without stairs… but my Aunts and Lola built another one for keeping some other things purposes… there, I played alone because no one lives there. I put my toys on the “bangerahan” (I don’t know how others call it.. it’s like a kitchen) and would pretend cooking and washing clothes alone, sometimes with my younger cousin or little bro or the kid in our neighborhood.

I felt like that I was home inside the hut. The breeze of the air was deferent, the coolness of the floor, the creaking sound of the bamboo… I love those things… and I am still wishing that I could own one standing beside the beach.

Few days ago a fellow deviant artist asked me to sign up on their forum KUBO

Here’s how they defined the KUBO FORUM:

“Bahay KUBO kahit munti ang halaman roon ay sari sari…”

The name KUBO was derived from a famous Filipino Folk song “Bahay Kubo” which became an inspiration to a dream of unity and shelter different forms of expressive art forms from traditional art to contemporary digital art. Kubo not just shelter for Filipino Natives artist but also explore and collaborate with other nationality. Kubo is a home for anyone who wants to share and learn from everybody. Respecting each other’s individual beliefs. [ more ]

In the midst of the night or wee hours in the morning while surfing the net on some tutorials, I can hear the sound of the computer.. Weird sound... I can hear wall-e.. I’m not kidding. Every time I maximize or minimize an application there’s a sound. I’m not even listening to music of anything but my earphones are still on my ears. (forgot to take it out). Weird… sound…

Another rare kind of plant and I don’t know what’s the name of it. That’s why it’s rare.
I found a lot of inspiring sites lately, and it gives me light somehow. Here are some of the inspiring sites for me:

Life isn't life without pain, without hardship, without sacrifice. In a human life you need those things in order to live, in order to survive.

This rose is still a rose even it is bended. Maybe its stalk can't handle the weight of its petals but it is still a rose.

A beautiful Rose.

*By the way, Once in a while I'll be featuring blogs / sites here for a change, not
just by posting pictures with a quotations from the mountain ranges of Tralala.. ^_~

For a start here's Mr. Skitepolis, he just started in blogspot… He writes well with his crazy pen and dull mind according to him. You might want to know him more or add him up on your blogroll and give him a smile by commenting on his entries.

The beginning is about to start

To die in order to live.
Just left my job a week ago and it wasn’t the way I wanted to end it. To cut the story short I left earlier regardless of the date I planned to leave and some other other reasons.
I can’t say it was a happy ending, but I am satisfied with the decision I made. I am thankful and blessed having those people who believed me and supported me for the nth time. The company influenced me a lot and taught me a lot of things. Who can resist the mac book pro, up to the gadgets.. dual screens and etc they lent me.. It was my dream job though…
But the time had come and I need to bid my goodbye.
And…. Thizizit… a new shift. new journey, new path.. going solo… oh wish me luck or pray for me on this new venture. Salamat!

[1999 sketch]

by Hangad

Sa mahinahong paalam ng araw
Sa pag-ihip ng hanging kahapunan
Balabal ko'y init ng 'yong pag-ibig
Sa dapit-hapong kay lamig

Mga bituin kay agang magsigising
Umaandap, mapaglaro man din
Iyong ngiti hatid nila sa akin
Sa diwa ko't panalangin

Puso ko'y pahimlayin Inay
Upang yaring hamog
Ng gabing tiwasay
Ay madama ko bilang damping
Halik ng 'yong Anak
Ay! Irog kong inay

Sa palad niyo itago aking palad
Aking bakas sa inyong bakas ilapat
At iuwi sa tahanan kong dapat
Sa piling ng inyong Anak

Puso ko'y pahimlayin Inay
Upang yaring hamog
Ng gabing tiwasay
Ay madama ko bilang damping
Halik ng 'yong anak
Ay! Irog ko, O Ina kong mahal
Ay! Irog kong Inay

3 years!!!

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
Aaron Siskind
[model: my little bro]
It’s been 3 years since I’ve started posting photos on this account. I am a frustrated photographer and as you can see most of the photos posted here were random shots. I don't care whether I'm violating rules on how to take pictures/shots of things or not.

Using quotes, lyrics and photos to reflect my feelings, this photoblog served as one of my outlets. I used it too, to share with everyone how I have appreciated the blessings that were given to me - the views, mountains, plants, people, and etc.

Thanks to those who took time to visit, appreciate, and comment on my page.

Thank you very much!!!!! It inspires me.. God bless everyone!

P.s. feel free to browse my archive

*salamat mareng maggie.. ^_^

In life

In life only one is certain, apart from death and taxes.

No matter how hard you try.. No matter how good your intentions.... YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE MISTAKES... YOU ARE GOING TO HURT PEOPLE AND YOU ARE GOING TO GET HURT...

If you ever want to recover. there's really one thing you can say. I FORGIVE YOU.

~ Grey's anatomy

Mar 26, 2008


so many people walk around with a meaningless life. they seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. this is because they're chasing the wrong things. the way you get meaning into your life is to devout yourself to loving others, devout yourself to your community around you, and devout yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.

[within the church's vicinity]

The Warrior of the light behaves like a child.

People are shocked; they have forgotten that a child needs to have fun and to play, to be slightly irreverent and to ask awkward, childish questions, to talk nonsense that not even he believes in.

And they say, horrified: "So this is the spiritual path, is it? He's so immature!"

The Warrior feels proud of such comments. And he remains in touch with God though his innocence and his joy, without ever losing sigh of his mission.

~Paulo Coelho

tommorow ^_^

The sun'll come out
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck a day

That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,

The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow!
You're always
A day
A way!

May the good Lord bless and keep you

[new year @ Bolo, Roxas City, Capiz]
May the good Lord bless and keep youWhether near or far awayMay you find that long awaitedGolden day today.May your troubles all be small onesAnd your fortunes ten times tenMay the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet again.May you walk with sunlight shiningAnd a bluebird in every treeMay there be a silver liningBack on every cloud you see.Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrowsNever mind what might have beenMay the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet again.(May you walk with sunlight shining)And a bluebird in every tree(May there be a silver lining)Back on every cloud you see.Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrowsNever mind what might have beenMay the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet again.May the good Lord bless and keep youTill we meet, (Till we meet)Till we meet again...
