mang tomas shoot
how many times in your life would you say you’ve been seen in behind the scenes videos of local ads? 🙂 ninang may called me one sunday to tell me she spotted me and my bald head on tv. all in good fun 🙂 cheers!
to the grocery
it’s 10.22 in the evening. we just came from rustans fresh in katipunan. bought some beef (australian beef breakfast steak slices at p103 for 4 pieces) for dinner. tried identifying what happy food i wanted and realized ive been craving for beef pepper steak for days now. got pepper steak sauce also (expensive at p93 for 165ml); had to try it. we’re now back home and while waiting for the hawaiian brown rice to cook (courtesy of tita tina), i continue doing my sketches for tomorrow’s preprod while listening to nirvana’s (most awesome) mtv unplugged album.
chuvaness swore on the freshly squeezed oranged prepared by this squeezing machine in rustans and packaged in del monte bottles. decided to try out the smallest bottle (for p86 a pop) and it was actually good. i do think im a fan now. You Like This.
carlo pulled out some frozen onion rings and shrimp dumplings from the freezer while i contemplated on young pork tocino or nuggets. i decided to forego both and settled on the beef. also got flypaper as the newborn mice at home are getting comfortable, skipping over the kitchen floor like nursery kids on the way home.
ive already laid out the sticky traps, waiting vigilantly but it’s been 30 minutes and no mice. have their mothers warned them of such perils and kept them at bay in the safety of their little holes in my dvd cabinet? hmmm…
and the longer i keep on blogging, the less time i get to finish my sketches. till the next!
to ping or not to ping.
and i always ask these questions
im curious on this ping.fm network that updates most my online accounts simultaneously. of course i was wary of submitting my account passwords for it to access my twitter, facebook, myspace, multiply and my wordpress blog. however i was far more curious and fascinated of the possible convenience it offers me. curiousity kills the cat. how many lives have i got left? and we ping…
trying out ping.fm. will there be a hoorah?
worked on this nestle milo ad a few months back. i dont know if it was screened extensively on tv. the texture is nice and i like the soundtrack 🙂 artdep were lolafer and chantel plus ivan, setman buboy. cheers!
OMG. this office is awesome. looking out into nature and staying in a climate controlled environment. epic win. houses should also be this sensitive to natural landscapes. we tend to forget there’s more to our world than us.
would love to live in a house like this. but considering the climate in the philippines, this would be hell. tweaking the design would help, maximize habagat and amihan, sun directions and storm protection, the works. the structure is post postmodern na haha but i like. maybe less brown wood and a bit more polished cement. and less glass. mainit man gud.
From apartment therapy: In case you ever need to find that perfect gift for someone who loves dogs and/or cats, consider getting them one of these vintage-style record albums designed and created by artist Stephen Fowler…
my new bed. yihee
aside from the trip home, my birthday gift for myself was this custom-made bedframe (my design). this is a result of years of contemplation, visualization and prayers. i was undecided whether i were to do a daybed sofa kind of bed or one with a tufted leather headboard. eventually factors of size and bed position dictated i get this. also, originally i asked the carpenter to stain the wood black. he wasnt able to do it so i said ill do it nalang. but the antique finish, light stain grew on me, and surprisingly went well with my grey walls.
was able to enjoy sleeping on the new bed for three days before i flew back to manila. see you again in december! tita an, dili na pwede himuon bodeyga akong kwarto ha! bawal !
