It’s official. SARAH G.

It’s official. Sarah G. will be gracing the cover of this September Preview Issue. I think this will be her 2nd time being the cover. And I am amazed at the fact that she is just only 22 and she is able to accomplish so many things in such an age.

Love Story meets Viva La Vida…

I am this huge instrumental fan. When I listen to instruments being played, my imagination would wonder. Colors, movement and shapes start to mesh with the melody being played by the instruments.

I want to share this video with you. One of my favorite songs, Love Story and Viva La Vida in an instrumental mash-up by John Schmidt.

If the video doesn’t work, just follow the link above and it will send you straight there.

It has always been my frustration not learning how to play the piano but since I’m still young, I will find every possible way for me to learn. Remember guys,if you have frustrations in your life, they would only make you feel miserable so since you are still alive, you should grasp every opportunity you can to fulfill your dreams.

Don’t let regret be part of your life.

Yours truly,

Boy Toy…

I was able to stumble to these pictures by Robert Mendolla. I really love how just adding simple details made this huge impact.

Cool Kids/Fun-havers in Dumaguete

This is one of the best trips I have taken and making it more memorable, I used my well-earned money just for this trip. It was really really fun especially the company. You can go wherever in the world but if you don’t have a great company to be with it is not going to be that memorable. I have noticed that when I met up with a good friend in Japan.

Getting there was really long and discomforting since we took the bus and I was sitting in the middle seat which was really hard for me to take a nap since there was no head rest.

Our first stop in Dumaguete was Gabby’s Bistro. It was really beautiful bistro. it had that ambience that made you feel like you are home. And what was so amazing was the interior details which was done by the mother of the owner. I am really sorry if I was not really able to take any pics of the place because of exhaustion but I was able to take a picture of this artwork which was inspired by a very popular Discovery Channel series, The Mythbusters.


The food was GREAT!! I ordered a japanese dish, Katsudon. It had shitake mushrooms, breaded porkchop, their homemade teriyaki sauce and topped off with sesame seeds. Delicious, huge serving and just right for its price.


The Cool Kids /  Fun-havers

Afterwards, went straight to the house to leave our luggage and get ready for the night-out. I love the room that I was in. It was really cozy especially the bed and pillows.


I so wanted this car. It look so vintage and to my amazement, it is a Honda. I thought it was a Porsche.


This is how Gabby’s Bistro looks like at night. What a great place to chill with good friends.

It was really hard for us to wake up the next day but thanks to Mike. We were all able to. So we all decided to go to Apo Island to check out the beach there. On the way there, I was able to stumble on this beautiful looking old church. I wanted to go in and make a wish but we didn’t have the time.


Apo Island, it looks like the island in the Series, Lost.


The Banca we rode in. It was huge and spacious.


We finally reached the shore.


I want to thank Kat for this picture. I went snorkeling with Elysse as my partner. The Coral Reef of the island was AMAZING!! I really wish I brought an underwater camera just to show you guys. It was like this endless field of corals. There was this numerous array of corals that was shown by the corals. It was just breath-taking. And the fishes were so beautiful. I was amazed to see this colony of clownfish in this huge patch of anemones.

If you are going to Dumaguete, you must visit Apo Island.



For our way back to Cebu, we decided to take a v-hire at least this way we can have more fun rather than taking a bus. It was the best land trip I have ever taken. Totally excited for the next trip, Bantayan.


I want to thank the Bernedo family for everything and especially to Elysse for the invite, Kat and Lest for the pictures, Mike for being Mike, Jumbo for being a great brother I have never had, and Guiji for the fun conversations.

Till the next adventure.

Yours Truly,

Rocking the Mouth’s Cradle

Music of Bjork fills the air space around us, silhouettes of all shapes and size flocks

vibrant colors, here, there, everywhere.

I was really excited to be attending in this Art Exhibit of a truly talented friend, Russ Raniel Ligtas. I do miss attending these kind of events ever since I have been developing my jewelry line and anything business related. I love attending Art Exhibits for they show the true creative potential of the human subconscious with application. But for me, the most exciting part of the exhibit would be the Art performance. Whenever it comes to art performance, Russ Raniel Ligtas is one of the best or the best. His performances are beautifully plotted to question or maybe to tickle your mind.

Here are some of the paintings that I am really interested to get but maybe later on when I have my own loft, house, mansion or even shelter.

Looking at his works, their is something new and refreshing. Though the abstraction of body forms are still there but in the introduction of animals, vibrant colors, and a focus on certain body parts is entirely new.



And finally, here comes the performances that I have been so excited to see.


For musical background during the performance, the ever so talented Chai Fonacier sang with such medley and beauty.


During the performance, another person would be giving a piece of bread. Before she gives you that piece of bread, she tells you of a certain issue, in my case, she was telling me about the Manila Hijacked Bus.


During the performance, I just couldn’t resist to take a picture of this mother and child. One of these days, I’ll be making an artwork inspired from this picture.


After this performance, there was a little AVP and finally the most-awaited perfomance, the return of Happy. It was really amazing and energetic. He comes in the room running around and finally, falling down to the ground.

Then he stands up goes around the crowd, blabbering and showing a poster written on it, ” Who rocked the mouth’s cradle?”

He starts painting on the poster making a smiley face and finally showing it the crowd which ends the performance.

What a truly successful art exhibit and performance. Excited for more to come

Yours truly,

.N.

A letter from a teenage Filipino to the WHOLE WORLD

As you are reading this letter, I bet that you have seen/heard about what happened earlier in our country.

Tourists were hostages of a policeman here, Rolando Mendoza. After a few hours of the horrible crime, some of the victims were dead including the hostage-taker.

I wrote this letter not just to apologize but also to let everyone know that we Filipinos are not all like Mendoza. We are loving and good-hearted people.

For so many years, our country has been standing tall and surpassing every dilemma; be it small or big. Years ago (back when I wasn’t born yet), you have watched us fight for what we think is right. We fought for the democracy of our nation.. The EDSA revolution. But that’s just one out of many.

Second. We Filipinos have been serving other countries for our families and we treat you as our own as well. With all due respect, I thank you all for giving us the trust through the years. For helping us to become what we are now.

The Philippines is more than just a group of islands. We are a nation of strong and remarkable people. A country of beauty and love known to be hospitable and well-valued. I humbly apologize for what happened tonight. No one in this world would want something like that to happen for life should be valued.

I politely ask the attention of the world. Please do not judge and mistreat us just because of what happened tonight. I have been searching the net and found terrible things. Hong Kong advices to avoid travels here, China and HK bans Filipinos and that Philippines is the worst place to go.

I can’t blame you for what you have decided but I hope that you could understand. Our country is now in a sea of problems. And I know for sure that we helped you in a way or another. Let peace and understanding reign this time.

I know that this letter will just be trash but I wish that you would understand. On behalf of the Philippine population.. WE ARE SORRY.

As a song puts it…

And I believe that in my life I will see an end to hopelessness, giving-up and suffering. And we all stand together this one time then no one will get left behind. Stand up for life. STAND UP FOR LOVE

Sincerely yours,

Reigno Jose Dilao
