Prepping 101: Food Source

No, this post doesn’t declare my accrual of a green thumb–at the least, mine is red from nail-biting. Aggregating thoughts swimming about, I’ve decided to create a series on sustainable living. When the nearest Mcdonalds or 7/11 has been toppled by calamities or a horde of zombies (you never know), what’s one way of providing…

Dapitan: In your spare time, draw fish.

Colours will distract you some days and they’re captivating enough to count as valid nutrition sources. Think photography, for me, has always involved tiptoeing lines between light and shadow; it’s a time-consuming exercise and a healthy distraction that sometimes serves it’s purpose, drawing in cash when necessary. Myriad of hues with it’s hint of comedy,…

Sustain the habit.

Continually, life blindsides me on an innocent Tuesday while you’re simply flowing with the tides. Salt to the face, ocean breeze, stray jellyfish nipping at your leg. My childhood, continuously tethered to bodies of water; the ocean a metaphor for life. What am I getting at? I’m not so sure yet, I just know that…

Paubari’s Third Son: Dumalapdap

I’d been itching to make this… finally got the time to do it today. If you see an awkward resemblance between Dumalapdap and Vincent Valentine from the Final Fantasy series then you’re just imagining things. Shortly after Humadapnon left their home to seek revenge on Saragnayan’s family and followers, Dumalapdap embarked on a quest of…

2012: Death, Earth and Sky

Almost, I hold this theory: jumble sunshine, sky, a string or brass section into any song and it’ll worm it’s way into my heart. End of 2012 and this song comes to mind, maybe because it’s both hopeful and bittersweet. By personal definition, the perfect metaphor for 2012. All those simple thoughts all those peaceful…

  On a bike, somewhere in Leyte, daddy and me. I have no memory of these times. Deep in my bones I know a fresh breeze will always be welcome on skin, riding bikes is a pleasant distraction, the sight of ocean is irreplaceable and my sense of security is rooted in mountains. I have…

One song, I first heard as a high school student: a string of lyrics that caught my ears. I forgot about it, I wasn’t in the habit of googling melodies yet. About four years afterwards, I’d just gotten into my first job and was walking around the mall after a long day. Matt Hales’ lyrics…

Known for being picky with food, it’s not the taste that often encourages it. I don’t think my taste buds have that much range… It’s mostly the ingredients I’m keeping a keen eye on. “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ― Hippocrates Simply put, if a meal leaves me feeling lethargic, careening into…
