twisted fork

i like art. it's unpretentious. and raw. and it creates better bridges to community. though I'm not good at it,i like to think that i have a huge and healthy appreciation for arts more than any categories i would like to bring up with,well art AND life itself.

enter Ferdinand Center for the Creative.

I believe in this group because their aim is to teach,provide art to the less fortunate.
I also have this strong belief that art will eventually rule the earth.

i got this message from ferdinandcc's main man, Lester nelson, last month,asking if i can do some stints on interviewing some of the graphic artists here in manila.without batting an eyelash,i had to say yes.

now,i have to say that i have NO proper knowledge of theories or technicalities when it comes to graphic design,but i know how to distinguish pieces that stand out.because i think that those pieces makes a person different.

my first interview was for graphic artist Dan Matutina.
he's the main man for Idea's - it's a design & communications agency that helps design to nonprofits and NGOs.

If that’s not enough, he also teaches at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts.

for days, i had been emailing Lester back and forth about questions we can ask to Dan,until those were finalized and i had to email Dan.I was nervous because,heck,that's my first time and I feel like a groupie.

Finally,i had a reply from Dan for the interviews.yay!!
being a wreck for a few days paid off after all.'s the link:

and here's Dan's links:
super thanks, Les!!

in her elizabeth

i was on leave last Tuesday,my nose was runny and i had a really irritated throat. i'll be on leave until this Friday.

after a ton of events,i was encouraged by patty to write again,so yay.

anyway,since i was on leave last Tuesday,i was also invited by close friends,Ben mart and Charles to have dinner at dampa.seafood overload.haha.

by 10 pm,we were already stuffed with seafood on our bellies and mart has to go home.i have to file for leave by 1am so i was really that available that time.luckily enough,Charles said that the terminal going to their place arrives by 10.30. i had to suggest to Ben and Charles to go with me at the collective so check out the place.

when we came there,the place was pretty much closed. except for Vinyl on vinyl,that art space with beautiful graffiti on it.luckily enough,it was the opening night for kooky tuason and some artists for their show "in her Elizabeth"- it's an exhibit where artists get to interpret their take from kooky's poems. i get to see Dex again, and some familiar faces, like Zeus.and i was introduced to uno magazine's gabby de la Rama and comedian Stanley chi.they're so down to earth.but i was really drawn into the artworks and sounds-it never fails that these two always go hand in hand.that was a good night,every art night is.

i was on hibernation

long time no activity,bloggie.*sigh*
i promise to now give you helluva updates soon
i'm still heartbroken and hopeful
it's much better to be on hiatus on relationships and special someone
i'd rather focus on things that i love
music and art, sometimes people food and fashion
i promise to write more. <3

back to work

i've been in my absence for almost 2 months here.i missed writing though.i've mostly been busy.i've been through a lot lately so i really do apologize for that.but now that i'm back,let's get to the main stuff.

last 2 weeks so far was awesome.


FRESH SOUNDS at RCBC's hexagon lounge

Upharma down,Not Another Boyband,and Sleepwalk Circus

I simply cannot miss that because of some reasons

* it was my day off
*i still have spare cash to kill
*rcbc is a place that a few heard of as an elite gig spot
*lastly-sleepwalk circus and updharma down

i came there late with my usual posse- ben and charles. then i saw some friends there as well,like red and nikki, tim, aki and even my grade school classmate,paula!:D

we already arrived when the first act, Not another boyband did their stint.they sound electronica,which will make me look forward to listening to them.i was only able to hear one song from them when we arrived.but i promise to listen to more of them soon.

it was nice when i was a bit tipsy that time.listening to Sleepwalk circus feels like it drives me to into this place when no one braves to that was my first time to also see their new bassist,laurie.she was cute,hehe.

the reason why i also loved Sleepwalk is because all performances are different.they weren't boring.the light shows were only a plus.

The next and last act of the night were from Updharma down.

And just like Sleepwalk, they are also one of the acts that everyone shouldn't miss.

Armi's vocals were as superb as always,followed by Carlos' trippy riffs and Paul's basslines were always awesome.And finally i get to watch Ian to play again.All of their songs made me fall in love with "Bipolar" once again-as if i've lost my love for the album.haha.

It was also great that I've encountered my 5 minutes with Armi.She asked where i got my shirt- my fave tee of the moment-my yakult shirt.:D

late night ends,and ben and charlie had to leave after.So red nikki and tim invited me to eat midnight dinner with them at an area in ortigas where foodtrip galore exists.They call it banchetto,and the foodmarket opens every friday midnight to saturday lunchtime.

And the glory of it all began. i had a hard time choosing what to eat because all looked so mouth-watering.i liked Tim's blueberry pie that he was perfect-not to sweet and not too heavy at the same time.and i ate my chicken pasta. and i was baptized with banchetto's bestseller- the crepeman's white chocolate crepe.and i was craving for it after.hehe.that was a good night.
