National Heroes Day






A couple of photos shot sometime ago, fitting for National Heroes Day.  Chanced to have seen these guys cosplaying  Heneral Antonio Luna and his troops one afternoon. Would not pass up the chance for this. Heneral Luna is a bio pic movie about a fiery Filipino general who fought during the Philippine-American war. So far, one of the better films in the local cinema which acquired a cult following. Hoping to see more films like these soon, said that there’s a Gregorio del Pilar movie in the works?



Hello Lucy

Lucy-the-FrenchieNoticed a lot of people have taken a liking for French Bulldogs lately and left me in wonder on why. Last weekend, came across this little lady named Lucy and finally found out on the later. They’re adorable and playful.

If you’re reading this, I’d like to ask a question. Do you have any pets and out of curiosity, what are your pets’ temperament? :))

The Perspective So Far

We’ve managed to have resumed Sessions Illustrated earlier this year with a quick walk through on the basics of perspective which comes in handy when you draw backgrounds if you want to create a full illustration to help in narrating a story. Unlike before we’ve managed to have a monthly meet up for the past years, we’ve decided to focus on the quality of our meet ups opposed to quantity. So this year, we’ve planned to have each meet up with a theme and a topic or skill in drawing we will be discussing about.

Southern American Cooking at Don Andres



Discovered Peruvian cuisine themed restaurant here Don Andres. Tucked along Sgt. Esguerra Street, Don Andres surprised us with a great ambiance and delicious food. Originally from Scout Tobias, they’ve currently relocated  the restaurant. Ran by four friends, they’ve decided to put up a resto with a South American flair. They’ve worked with a Peruvian chef, who grew up in Japan. Yes, that’s right. Japan. Turns out there is a large number of Peruvians also residing in the land of the rising sun. After creating a menu the way the chef has wanted it as so, they’ve managed to present an array of dishes. While names do sound familiar with our association with Spanish culture. Some of the food here are brand new to the taste.

DA-DonAndresDon Andres’ cleverly designed logo. Exactly what do you see? 🙂

Tried out Inca Kola, an import from where else Peru. 😉
This soda has an unusual sweet, fruity flavor. Comparable to bubblegum & cream soda, if you’re familiar with these 2.
