The Ultimate Commune…

… Is to meditate while sitting on a rock and breathing the ocean air with the sea and the sky in plain view. The setting sun on top of your head makes one wonder how awesome our planet really is!

3D Puzzle: Wheel Loader

This is the third puzzle I’ve assembled in the Construction Equipment Series of Scholas, the maker of this toy puzzle. It took me more time to assemble this piece because I was also watching “The Tourist” movie starred by Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie at the same time and cannot really focus in solving this puzzle. It’s a good movie… And I know, you would rather watch it, too, rather than look at the boring images I posted.

Yup, they are really boring. Hehehe! But I enjoyed assembling it as usual and my daughter also helped since she saw me watching the movie and had some difficulties in trying to fit a couple of parts in the half-completed wheel roller.

The Limited Edition Php5 Coin

The Php5 coin commemorating the 70th Leyte Gulf Landing… Don’t spend it if you have one as this coin is Limited Edition only and may be a collector’s item in the future!

The Leyte Gulf-landing coin has a diameter of 27 mm. Its obverse side has the image of the Leyte Landing Memorial Monument on Red Beach in Palo, Leyte, along with the markings “Leyte Gulf Landing” and “1944-2014.” Its reverse side has Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s famous quotation “I have returned. By the grace of Almighty God our forces stand together again on Philippine soil—soil consecrated in the blood of our two peoples.” Along with those are the markings “Republika ng Pilipinas,” Gen. MacArthur’s signature, five five-point stars, the Bangko Sentral logo and “5 Piso.” (Courtesy of Manila Standard Today, issue Dec. 20, 2014)

My Sketch of a Woman…

image

I drew this image using my Android’s Sketchbook. We were actually in a resort when I saw this woman wearing a two piece bikini having herself photographed by one of her friends. Good thing my photographic memory is operational that time and as soon as I got hold of my Android, I sketched her using her image stored in my brain cells.

Of course, my wife hit the “Del” button to completely erase her from my memory after I completed sketching her. And I had that “Del” button protruding at my forehead for three days since she used the heel of her shoes to press the button. I think her shoes was traveling like a jet plane when it hit my “Del” button!

Hmmm, where did I hid that “undelete” utility in my brain?

Only in the Philippines…

… Where shoppers line up waiting for their belongings to be checked and for their body to be frisked when entering a mall!

That’s how inept the law enforcement is in the country where crimes are rampant on the streets and inside the malls. And believe it or not, the Philippines is the only country in the Pacific Rim where majority of its citizens are Christians and churches are packed of “religious people” who curse, violate traffic rules, sell their votes to the highest bidder, tolerate, if not encourage corruption, and steals from the nation’s coffers right after the mass!
