Tinkering Tales

Tinkering with something new, with concepts and traditional mediums that have been long untouched which meant the perfect time to re-discover them.


My work will be up alongside other fellow INKies of Ang INK for our 25th year and  we will be celebrating it at Ayala Museum

We’d love for you to join us at the opening reception of our exhibit, Tinker Tales on Sept. 12, 2016, 6 PM. See you there!



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?


Tell Me Your Story

Sometimes we ask ourselves…

Why are some stories easier than others?
Better written than others?
Why are stories not fair in general?

Countless times we tend to beat ourselves then, punch a wall or try to avoid at all costs. Yet, the inevitable happens. It will still happen and will be a part of it. At the end of the day, everything written by the hands of something great and divine. Which gets rewritten, erased or completely changed.

Each story is different. In life, each tells a personal story about winning and losing, joy and pain, love and loss, destruction and discovery.

Everyone is given what they can handle. At times though, we think we can’t handle it. The stories of our lives can drive us a bit crazy (sometimes) with an intense attachment or if you’re in constant question with the situation.

Part of the reason we’ve got stories to share is that God wants us to know that his love is constant and unconditional.

That’s why we’ve been given free will. We take risks, we try and sometimes make mistakes. These are lessons to be learned, where we through grace overcome our fears and taking that first step into that undiscovered territory which could be at something out of your comfort zone. As long, as you take a bit of faith along in your journey.

Discovering peace within loneliness is when endure these times. When you know God is with you. What you cannot explain yet you trust in Him everything will be alright. With these moments, you are able to hear His message to you. 🙂

Definitely there is that liberating feeling and sense of empowerment in becoming a light to others by sharing your stories. May they be big or little.

Change destiny. Live your free will. Tell your story.

Posh Nails’ Ginger Lemongrass Summer Treat

After a trip to the beach, usually I’d book myself for a spa session for my hands and feet especially after spending countless hours roaming and sometimes sleeping along the shore. Not to worry, I was under the shade. Upon my return to the daily grind, dropped by the newest Posh Nails branch located at SM MOA to get myself a treatment.

Their summer offer, the refreshing lemongrass ginger is on point then. Lemongrass contains antioxidants and vitamins to prevent skin aging which minimizes pores and also as a moisturizer.

Ginger on the other hand has proven its magic works beyond the kitchen. This spice also has properties  that prevent damage from free radicals, evens out complexion and improves our skin’s elasticity for a more firm and of course, a youthful glow.

The package when availed includes a sugar scrub to exfoliate, a moisture mask is then followed up to lock in those hydrating anti-oxidants to rejuvenate our skin exposed from the summer sun. Finally, a lotion is then applied to condition our pampered hands and feet.


Of course, with the new offer from Posh Nails. We’re giving away 2 Lemongrass Ginger pampering packages here on the blog! With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we’ve also got 2  tickets to the special screening of Mother’s Day movie starring Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson on May 3, at the SM Megamall, 7pm alongside the special treat that you could share with your mom at Posh Nails.
