It’s Finally Out! : Velvet on JustWrite-Ph Author Bundle!

It has been approximately a month and a half has already passed. October is almost coming to a close. I still can’t believe it– the fact that I’m now an Author.  

God is Good” I thought to myself.

     A few months back, I would have never thought I would be anything but a broken piece of trash (I know– hahaha it sounds so off coming from me now. Does it?) Well, I guess that is to be expected, when you run down a mile of heart breaks on valentines day.

All I can say is that– this novel series definitely gave me a whole lot of things to think about, and perhaps not hope but, dream about. So, I would like to ramble a  bit about the one person who has helped me find my dreams and to everyone who has helped me grow.

 The Man responsible for my progress is my good friend, none other than— Mr. Mark Thomas Manalang of #UnlimitedGrubGrabs for all of his dedication, hard work and inspiring stories that he has shared.

My Beta Readers Kimy Sanchez of #Kimi’s Artspace and to my friends Yhen Cay and Girlie Mangahas. THANK YOU!

     I know that I still have a long way to go but amidst all the busy writing, musings and plannings. I will always look forward to tomorrow from now on.

Please continue supporting our Books from #JustWritePH and also Mr. Mark Manalang’s Novel: The Seven Day Detective that you can purchase: #JustWritePH – For Justice

Kinfolk Magazine Vol. 6


A friend of mine shared this to me, and I simply could not help but share.

Originally posted on Made by Sohn:

There is much to share and many words of thanksgiving that need to be uttered. Having my illustrations published in Kinfolk Vol. 6 is so much more than saying one of my career ambitions has been fulfilled.

To me, this project is evidence that God can do great works when we have faith in Him.  Never did I think in just five short months, I would already have published work in one of the most beautiful magazines of our generation.  Everyone who is close to me saw the wreck I was when I took the leap of faith to pursue calligraphy and illustration full time.   I look back and wonder why I had so much fear.  God promises that when we respond and obey His will, He will bless and take care of us, even in our career ambitions.  God says, “Never will I leave you, never will I…

Mga kapatid, ka-Pamily at kaibigan kong Minamahal
Ninanais ko sana humiling ng saglitang pagkakataong makausap ka…

mula saaking muntiang mensahe

Nangangarap na sana ay magbunga

Upang mahulma ang mga isipan tungo sa usaping gigising sa ating diwa

Dumating na ang panahon
Upang maulit muli ang matutunan umibig para sa bayang naghihinagpis

Kasabay ng alon ng mga damdamin

Ng mga kababayan nating nagnanais lumaya

Sa kaalipustahan ng ating kapwa

Bayang unti unting nasisilaw

Sa berdeng papel na mapanlinlang

Na inaakalang bibili ng ginhawa

Bayan na pinagpalit ang paglaya

Sa kasakimang di masusukat sa dugong binuwis ng bawat magiting

Kalayaang pinangarap para sa bayan natin

Tila dinaan sa aliw upang malihis ang tunay na adhikain

Sa bawat paglubog ng araw

At pagsikat ng buwan

Kalayaang minimithi nagmistulang mantikang natutulog at kat-hang isip

Di maiwasan mapabuntong hininga

Pagkat pangarap na paglaya

Ay tila nalimot na ng mga mamayang minsan nag Asam na makawal sa gapos ng nga banyaga

Mga damdaming suntok sa buwan ang isipan upang magising sa katotohan

Na pawang mga sarili lamang iniisip

Minsang naitananong sa sarili

Makakamit pa ba ng bayan

Ang hustisya ng kalayaan

At kung my pag asa pa bang mahulma

Ang isang mapang unawang pamahalaan

Na nag aasam ng ikakabuti ng ating bayan

Kung sa bawa’t oras na nagdaraan

Kabataang nararapat gabayan

Ay di mapaling sa landas ng kamalayan

Sa pag ibig sa bayan

Pagkat nahumaling sa mga banyagang nagpapangap tumulong sa bayan

O diyos ko na minamahal

Hinaing saiyo’y gabayan

Ang mga Bayani sa kasalukuyan

Buwis buhay na ipinaglalaban

ang kalayaan at paghulma sa bayan

Watch “Heneral Luna Film Experience” on YouTube

A quick note for a memorable experience worth watching.
Director Jerrold Tarrog has definitely raised the sticks high for a world class film. I salute the crew and Actor John Arcilla for his most creatively expressed acting as the General himself.

Gaming Morality A Student Documentary Feature

Are you looking for a video documentary about Gaming Morality?

If yes, then you’re just in luck. Read through the entry & hope it helps you along the way.

    I’ve got this awesome documentary made by a group of college professionals featuring the pressing issues of gaming morality and the effects that it causes for the gamer in the industry here in the Philippines.

A year ago, a favor was asked by my college friend, he told me about the topic that they had in mind and the documentary film that they would work on for some time and how they were in need to finish the project as soon as possible. Upon hearing this request it was understandable and with we decided to immediately we arranged a meeting.

I called out a few of my circle of friends & acquaintance to begin the shoot.

I waited for a couple of months before asking about their progress and when I heard about the work up and posted.

I immediately looked it up via YouTube channel and saw their finished piece.

It took them a whole, but the long grueling process was definitely worth it. I’ve been planning to post this video for some time now, but was never able to finish anything due to the series of unfortunate events that had taken place in my life. However, it is now my honor and pleasure to share this here on my third blog post for the Month of August.
