Yesterday was long and tiring but in the middle of it, I found something of my interest. I had lunch at this small town restaurant called “Wa Nam sa Bukid” with my workmates. I honestly don’t know what “wa nam” means, but surely “sa bukid” means “in the mountains”. What mattered was the really good food, made even better by the fact that we all had them as a treat. 🙂
Then I saw these frames hanging on the restaurant walls; they’re too beautiful to stay unnoticed. Unfortunately, they were hanging too high for me to read the signature. Up to now I’m still wondering if these frames were entirely painted or they were half painted, half photographed. Although I couldn’t imagine yet how the latter could have been done.
I wish I had a closer look at these frames so I could have figured what they really were – paintings or digitally manipulated photographs. Anyway, one way or the other, I adore these artworks and I’m now wishing I can also make at least one. 🙂

Visiting M’s mom’s place is like going to art school! That means I spend most of the time with my little playmate, one of M’s two little sisters. We draw greeting cards, color them, make bead bracelets and bead bottles, and design popsicle sticks.
My little playmate also has this big box of cloth scraps, which her granny brought for her. And shuffled among the scraps are three harumika mannequins, which she plays with her mom and her older sister. They usually play the harumika time as a contest; mom never wins and we know why. 😀
One time, my little playmate stayed upstairs playing with her sister. M, as he always is every time we visit his mom’s place, was also stuck at playing his game. And there I was playing, too, with the harumika mannequins, dressing them up in any ways I could come up with. It was fun! I thought I loved every design I pulled off, so I grabbed M’s camera and took shots of them all. Even more fun! 🙂

Someday when I’ll have my own house, I’m sure gonna find somethin’ like this! Maybe for my own room. Or for my bathroom. Maybe I’ll hang them above the tub! 🙂
This is somewhere in Gateway Mall, Araneta, Cubao. Whenever I get to walk around Gateway, I make sure to stand right there just for a minute; watch these snow-white butterfly cutouts as if they’re actually flying. Y’know, it often feels good to see kids’ stuff while becoming aware that you’re, in fact, aging. “HaHaHa” Lovely! 🙂
