1982 – Grade 1 section 2 at Sta. Ana Elementary School, Taytay, Rizal (until grade 3 and continued grade 6) Ms. Albano, Thank you Ma’am for believing in me. She transferred me to section 1 in my next grade;

1983 – Grade 2 section 1, Ms. Lacanienta, My best english speaking teacher. She’s also my God mother in my wedding;

1985 – Grade 4 section 1 at East Bajac Bajac, Olongapo City (until grade 5) Ms. Barrera, Terror teacher as they say but I’ve learned a lot from her;

1986 – Grade 5 section 1, Ms. Inocencio, Another terror teacher and also a great english teacher if I’m not mistaken;

1987 – Grade 6 section 1, Ms. Zacarias, Best english teacher and adviser;

1988 – 1st year High school at Juan Sumulong Memorial Jr. College, Taytay, Rizal (until 4th year) Ms. Enriquez, Our strict but loving adviser;

1989 – 2nd year High school, Ms. Gondra, Our comedic, fun-loving teacher in J.S.M.J.C.;

1991 – 4th year High school, Mr. Faustino;

1992 – 1996 Again, forgive me if I don’t remember all my professors in University of Sto Tomas – College of Fine Arts Major in Advertising. Some of the names I can only say are: Mr. Tolentino, Mr. Ventura, Mr. Dellosa, Mr. Velez, and of course My Thesis adviser – Ms. Becares.

I owe everyone of these teachers what I am now. Not only these teachers but also to my friends, colleagues, supervisors and superiors – they are also my teachers that molded me to be not only a better designer but also a better man.

And the best teacher of all – The one upstairs.

Thank you.

Good bye Captain, Oh Captain!

Robin Williams 1951-2014

Robin Williams 1951-2014

Another one of my favorite comedian kick the bucket and it was a shock as expected to those who knew the man. It’s ironic to think a comedian would end his life due to depression. It was really another blow on the entertainment business losing another top-billed actor. But it’s not surprising that entertainers or a comedian as Robin suffers from this serious medical condition. Depression can happen to people in any age, even children, and people from any race or ethnicity or social class. It is influenced by genetics, and can run in families, Dr. Manpreet Singh told Live Science. This is quite alarming, but I think It’s quite rare here in the Philippines – being a hospitable country with people who always finds a reason to smile. We’re generally a cheerful and happy people.

Weekend Art Session

I promised my daughter that I’ll buy her this “Paper Clay Art” this weekend so we went to DV thinking we could buy them for less but to no avail so we have no choice but to go to Market Market where our neighbor bought them.

In return I told my daughter to create me a loom band bracelet and in a few minutes she did create me one. Bought the materials at DV since we can’t find that paper clay art thingy.

Happy Tin Anniversary SLEEP-ZERO

Happy 10 years SLEEP-ZERO

Happy 10 years SLEEP-ZERO

Funny as it may seem but a 10 years anniversary is a Tin anniversary as 25 years is to Silver and 50 is to Gold.
Time flies really. I remember my colleague Josel convincing me to also signup with his friend’s local hosting company and start building my own website cause it sounds ironic that you’re telling everyone you know that you’re a web and graphic designer but you don’t have a personal site – not to offend those concerned but guess what it’s been ten years then.
Loved those years when we still use tables in our web layouts, our daily dose of <tr>’s and <td>’s and spacer.gif for the perfect height and width. The introduction of css, the spread of DIV-itis and now HTML5 and CSS3 for responsive web layout.
Kinda makes me feel old when you get to talk to new breed of web developers and talk them through the process of web designing before – from sketch, to photoshop psd, and html conversion. Naah! Geeky stuffs you may not bother to know.
Just want to thank all those people who have been a part of my journey to this long and winding web and graphic design of mine. I won’t be writing this to a wordpress blog if it wasn’t for you guys. You all know who you are.

A day with Spidey

A day with Spidey

I don’t know why the movie had some low review ratings but for me It was an ass-kicking adventure part 2. A very entertaining humorous Spider-Man with an engaging romance and breath-taking action scenes.
Did I mention that I’m a Spider-Man fanboy :) not a comic type but the tv-movie spidey fanboy.
And btw, I also would like to apologize to Peter(Andrew Garfield) for that unethical interview done by our fellow Filipino.
Keep swinging man!
