“Young cat, if you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you would learn. The most wonderful stuff.” - Dr. Seuss

In this room, in this room of mine.

I've been wanting to do a home office makeover ((Whatever for did I watch all those episodes of Merge, Clean House, and Design Remix when we still had the Lifestyle channel?)) for the longest time, and it was last month's termite invasion that pushed me to finally do it. I'll ...

The clover under your feet is shooting stars in the night.

January has been quite busy work-AND-household-maintenance-wise for Arn and me. Since my last entry, we've somehow managed to accomplish the following: 1) Had the house treated for termites. If you haven't inspected your cupboards and storage areas in a while, do yourselves a favor and do so now, you'll never know ...

In fire, in fire, down to the last wire

It's been a while since I posted a What's the Story entry so I thought I'd share with you a couple of really old design projects that I've unearthed from my ancient Mac's ((My G4 is turning 8 next month! I hardly use it anymore.)) hard drive. - Up first, ...

Summer rain, dripping down your face again

Sigh, my only excuse for not updating except is that I've been preoccupied ((With this, this, this, this, and this.)). Anyway, here are a few notes: - * It's been out for a while but here's a plug nonetheless: our mag Wedding Essentials came out with the annual Beautiful Weddings issue last ...

All that we are, all we do is here forever.

Just in case you heard rumors about it through the extremely tiny Metro Manila grapevine, please allow us to finally confirm that yes, it's true: Unitel Productions acquired the film rights to Arn's 2006 graphic novel "Ang Mundo ni Andong Agimat". We couldn't announce it formally ((Although of course family ...

There’s a silver lining in the corporate cloud.

Sorry for the lack of updates, too many things IRL ((in real life, lest you've forgotten)) were keeping my hands full. Most notably, our bi-annual labor of love: The new Wedding Essentials (July-December 2007) issue is out, and has actually been out for a while now. In case you haven't seen ...

Can you feel it? (Turn up your stereo!)

I have a confession to make: ever since Twitter invaded my life, I've been too lazy to update the normal way. But rather than let this webspace go to waste ((And yes, it's been paid for til the end of the year.)), here's one big fat update coming up. So ...

If you’re cold I’ll tell you it’s just the summer breeze

Since my last entry... * ...PLDT-DSL has gone from bad to worse. Is it just ours or do the lines really fluctuate for one to two hours during off-peak hours? It's been like this for two weeks now. We've reported it 3x but the rep only keeps saying that "they will ...

Really busy…busy, busy…hairdresser on fire

Huh? Is it time for my once-a-month entry already? I hardly even noticed February creep in because I was [see subject heading] ((And I was in 3rd year college when that song was all the rage with the new wave crowd. Do the math if you like.)) with: 1. A website ...

And the lights are flashing on your window sill

Hello, I hope you can support the following projects that my Arn recently worked on ((I only played supporting roles in these projects -- you know, scanning, photoshop and layout/FA work. It's really me hubby's show. ;))) . . Cast 10: Issue 10 of the charming Nautilus Comics series that revolves around the ...

Breaking radio silence…

... to let you know that I will *eventually* update this blog sometime in the future. :) In the meantime, I'm frequently on INSTAGRAM where you can see where I've been going + what I've been doing (and eating). Hope to see you there! *** Please also visit my husband Arnold Arre's blog for ...

Andong Agimat Animated!

What happened since the last time I blogged here? Lots! LOL but I'm not here to talk about them right now since I only have time to share with you Arnold's latest project, an animated film starring his very own Andong Agimat! Arn's never animated before (except for the flip books ...

All’s well that ends well

I apologize for being in a bad mood today but a certain "Totally Creative Graphic Design Studio" totally ripped off one of my original artworks and is selling it on notepads, journals and other stationery in their store "Invitation House". Tsk. My original design, a low-res image of which has been ...

You make me want to tell all I know

My husband Arnold is working on his second short film called "Kaye for Komiks". It's basically about a boy and a girl who bonds over a shared love for the comics medium. The film is still a work in progress but he made a 1-minute teaser video so you can ...
