Calligraphy Crafternoon

A couple of months ago, I attended a Calligraphy Crafternoon at Pipino, in Teacher's Village. A crafternoon (craft + afternoon) as the name suggests, is a couple of hours spent making and learning new art with other artsy people!

For a couple hundred pesos, the kit included a pen holder, 2 nibs (I didn't know that's what you call the tips), ink, sheets of paper, and worksheets.

Photoshoot: Backyard Holi

It all started with these vague texts from our friend Kats, inviting us to her place, one afternoon in August. She wouldn't tell us what we were going to do, but instead kept sending us cryptic messages and clues in Facebook. We all tried guessing what it was but I don't think anyone came close.

Surprise, surprise! She had everything ready when we arrived that day. It was a photoshoot! --with colored chalk, and water, that was bound to get messy. And oh, and a huge rainbow umbrella too.

She got the idea from Hindu's Holi Festival, wherein people throw colored powder to welcome spring's abundant colors, and bid winter a farewell. Also, it commemorates events in Hindu mythology. Not that anyone of us were practicing Hinduism, it was just such a cool idea to capture the effect of chalk and water on still photos.

Ang Nawawala (Cinemalaya 2012)

ANG NAWAWALA (What Isn't There) by Marie Jamora 

"You like your men the way you like your comic books. With a lot of issues." 

The story revolves around Gibson (Dominic Roco), a seemingly normal guy who has a camera permanently attached to his hand, taking photos and videos. But his biggest oddity is, he doesn't speak, at all. He isn't deaf, isn't mute. He just chose not to talk, after witnessing a tragic accident in his childhood, which effect is also prominent in the tension looming over his family. Just coming home from the States for the holidays, he meets the charming Enid (Annicka Dolonius), and suddenly finds himself falling in love.

Bookworm Diaries: Book Swap and Book Ukay at Maginhawa

It's always the spontaneous invites that get honored, haha. A friend of mine texted out of the blue and asked me to go with her to the Moonleaf Tea Shop Book Swap event.
