Palawan-A Hidden Paradise
This is no April Fool's Day joke, I am heading to Palawan. I
learned to appreciate this hidden paradise when I read about this on Maui

The Garden Isle
I am packing for my unexpected trip to the Garden Isle today. It is nice
to see old friends again. It is disappointing to cancel all my committments
to people here in the Valley Isle. I will be back on Friday evening. I
hope the weather will be excellent because in the past few weeks, the
island was inundated by the torrential rains. The island is lush green
so it is good for my camera opps. Let's go, I am thinking of another cooking
session but my friends there are already setting up dinner visits.

Guess what? A real life bunny was in our backyard this morning.
My nieces and I decided to keep it. Di namin alam kung sino may-ari pero
nakawala rin. Anyway. That was interesting that happened today. We're
all happy today! The easter bunny came to visit.

Easter Bunny Update
It's sad to hear that the Easter Bunny was found dead on the
road. The kids found it. I was thinking about it when I woke up hoping
it found its way again in our backyard.
I joined AIGA,
the professional association for design
I decided to join AIGA after a visit at Kinko's where I used
to work for 7 years. This is where I was molded in my profession as an
IT professional and a graphic designer. Given a choice, what would I be?
Both professions make good money. I would choose the graphic designer.
This was the reason why I bought a computer in the first place to learn
how to do desktop publishing. I honed my IT skills from my pursuit of
becoming a good designer. Thank you for your support.

I had a chance to try out Microsoft's
Expression series' Graphic Designer. The program is able to mimic
a paintbrush in vector and raster mode. Thanks to my trusty Wacom graphics
tablet I was able to vary the pressure for each brushstroke. I'll definitely
buy this one when Microsoft releases it on the market.
I will be creating my digital paintings with this great software. All
it takes is an eye for design and the passion to take imagination into
the digital canvas.

In Flying Colours
I was excited to wear my polo shirt at work given to me by my
little niece. It's made of handwoven fabric from the Southern Philippines.
It's coloured green and has golden threads making it shine from afar.
I've gotten nice comments about my fashion for the day. A co-worker expressed
interest in having one of these clothes. Hmm, maybe it is a good business
selling ethnic Filipino fashion design.
