VLF6: Bakit Wala Nang Nagtatagpo sa Philcoa Oberpas (2010)

Atop the Philcoa Overpass, life goes on as usual; a vendor waits for her toys to be sold, a street hustler invites passersby to solve a puzzle that doesn’t seem to have any solution, and an evangelist shouts hallelujah and asks for some meager change so that everybody’s soul can be saved.

Virgin Labfest 6 Photos: Balunbalunan, Bingibingihan (Set A)

Theater By July 29, 2010 No Comments

Balunbalunan, Bingibingihan written by Debbie Ann Tan, directed by Issa Manalo Lopez. Bembol Roco as Gilbey’s, Missy Maramara as Brandy, PJ Paule as Whiskey. Here is a slideshow of the photos from the entire set. They’re all really dark, even though I already cranked up the curves… I like to think of them as studies on chiarascuro. The photos were taken as photo documentation for Teatro Pilipinas and Tanghalang Pilipino but all photo copyrights belong solely to me.

Virgin Labfest 6 Photos: Isagani (Set A)

Theater By July 28, 2010 No Comments

Isagani written by Alex Dorola Yasuda, directed by Vince Tanada. Cast: John San Antonio as Isagani, Kierwin Larena as Lalaki. A stand-up comedian in one of those tawdry sing-along bars in Malate harbors a secret. Only the mute Miraculous Grotoo beside Baclaran church hears his stand-up lament after his comical stint at the bar. His prayer turns into a confession to a drug pusher, who peels off his comic mask slowly revealing a dark and terrible past. Unable to run away from the past that just keeps catching up with him, he cannot extinguish with all his comic quips and gags the horror he seeks to deny. No matter how profoundly he expiates for his crime, he ritualizes this scene every night much like his performance in the bars. This is a story of religious faith and a profound desire for change, a solipsistic reflection on remorse and the difficult striving to be whole again.

Potty Training One’s Child – Here is How I did It

MOMents By July 27, 2010 Tags: , , , 1 Comment

WARNING: This post is for and for mommies only. If you’re not a mom, stay away from this post. 🙂

I don’t really talk much about my daughter in my blog. Or if I do, I try to keep it to a minimum; but this post is all about mommyhood and if you’re not a mom, you will not be able to relate. If you are going to be a mom, reading might give you some insights. As for all the others, you have been warned.

Everything I am, everything I do is always an attempt at a balance. And when I have little successes like this one, I am allowed to be proud. Today I potty-trained my 15-month old child and I am one overly proud mom.

The Travel Factor 2010 Olympics

Travel Factor By July 26, 2010 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Here is a photo of all the participants after the brief awarding ceremony under the big tent. Some of the team members of Conquer (green) and UBBE (blue) have already left before we got the chance to tell them there is a group photo.

We all trooped to the Bat Cave after for more bonding time over dinner as well as to celebrate one of our friends’ promotion at work.

Over all, the TF Olympics was a success and so was the after-party and dinner. It felt really good to be with TF friends again and just laugh at the silliest things. Thank you Travel Factor for yet another wonderful time spent with all of you. You are the bestest thing traveling ever got for me. 🙂

The trip to El Nido, Palawan last April

Palawan By July 25, 2010 No Comments

I finally finished my blogs on Lia and I’s trip to El Nido, Palawan last April. It took a long time but I finally finished! One trip crossed out (or checked off) the travel blogs to-do list …and yet more to go!

I had a lot of pictures so I had to separate the entries.

I can do this. One little blog at a time.

Here is a photo of me with my Potter’s Place family, taken at the mess hall right after graduation. You can see some of the togas hanging out in the back… and I still have my long hair… 😉
