Burnt Skin: You are so TOAST!

You are so toast, Toaster! (*cries in agony*)

Well, it was already 7AM and I have not slept yet. I got hungry, so I decided to make a cheese sandwich.
— (But ofcourse I still ate some chips, some cup noodles and drank a pitcher of lemonade — Yes, I know. I have not been eating and sleeping properly this past few months, I promise to eat clean and sleep on time next month, again, I’m sorry) —

Anyway, I noticed that the upper part of the “Pandesal” was slipping together with the cheese melting towards the bottom of the toaster. SO WITHOUT USING MY BRAIN, I tried to fix the sandwich and tried moving it a bit closer to the toaster’s lid and then BAAAAM, my hand got burned..  (remembers pain *cries in agony*) (looks at wound *cries in agony*)

Our helper Tin-Tin offered me an Aloe Vera leaf.  She told me to just rub the jelly part on my burnt skin and so I did.
I searched Mr. Google and asked him if there were any remedies I could do for my skin.. and I found out thaaaaat,
ALOE VERA + BURNT SKIN = Soooooothiiiiing…

1.) I should have soaked the burnt part in cold water for 20 mins as soon as possible,   AND SO I DID….
Never apply ice to your burnt skin, The extreme cold can further cause damage to the burn.

2. Pat the wound w/ a dry cloth and get your Aloe Vera.
Break the Aloe Vera in the most fattest region so you could get a lot of those jelly-wellies..

3. Start treating!  Rub the jelly-welly unto your burnt skin in a gentle motion.
(You can put or apply as much aloe-jelly as you want to)
(This felt so great, I could have finished the whole plant! Haha)
APPLY THE GEL TWICE A DAY FOR 2-3 DAYS, UNTIL IT IS NO LONGER PAINFUL

Aloe Vera Jelly
It’ll feel painful once the jelly has come off but it’ll be okay after a few minutes.. 😀

4. Look at your burnt skin, and tell yourself that it won’t leave a scar 😥
– Hopefully it won’t but they say that it usually does, but I hope not! (*fingers crossed*)

Please call your doctor if you think that it isn’t just a 1st-2nd degree burn..
Things could get pretty nasty if you won’t. \(-__-)/

Camera used: GE X500
it was really hard taking a picture with this camera since it not friendly to those shaky hands (even just a bit)
though it takes good close-up photos when using a tripod (or when your really doing everything to stay still, haha)

Well, thank you for reading!

Welcome to the World of Theater: New Manghods

Welcome to the World of Theater: New Manghods

Hi. Hi. Hello!

Besides everyone having an awesome talent of their own.  There are other things that I really admire about this company,  We have this so-called “Magulang-Manghod” relationship (and no not those INCEST types, haha) It’s more like those KAPATIRAN moments I had when I was in highschool. It’s where the 4th Year (Seniors) would be assigned to take care and guide the 1st Year (Freshmen) You know something like how a mother would welcome it’s newborn into the world? Something like that.

In Japan they would call this as SENPAI-KOUHAI
Senpai: Usually older than the Kouhai (Senior/Mentor)
Kouhai: Usually younger than the Senpai (Freshman/Protégé)
*click THIS if you wanna know more*

Back to the Magulang-Manghod part, Magulang means an older sibling while Manghod  is a younger sibling.
In our case, even if we’re not blood-related we call the ones who passed the auditions and the initiation our new Manghod.

I have been a manghod once and from my experience I would describe a manghod as…  Someone who is new to the world of theater, Someone who is eager to learn more about theater, Someone who wants a fresh start, Someone who wants to be guided, Someone who admires his/her magulang.
Now, being a Magulang isn’t as easy as you think. You can’t be called a magulang if you haven’t done anything to earn that. Being a magulang means that you are capable of teaching and guiding your manghods, You have a bit of proof that you have the right to teach a few things to your manghod and have great passion for what you teach and do but even as a magulang we are still on the process of learning and WE SHALL NEVER STOP LEARNING. 😀

Every year our theater company accepts new apprentices. So that means every magulang would have a new manghod assigned to them as well. (that is IF the apprentices pass)
The manghod and magulang’s first pair-up would be in this parade, for this year we had “DREAMS & NIGHTMARES” as our theme.
The new kiddoes would be welcomed to the world of theater, well in this case it would be something like Street Theater 🙂

BayaNiRizal: Mga Bagong Kabanata ng Noli at Fili

BayaNiRizal: Mga Bagong Kabanata ng Noli at Fili 
Hi. Hi. Hello!

As I’ve told you in my “About Me section..
I am a lights designer and a member of  an awesome theater company the USA Little Theater. It’s actually thanks to them that I became a lights designer and now a Technical Director.  (But I still have a lot to learn though) Compared to those professional LD’s and TD’s. 🙂

Anywhoo, this post has been on the “draft” side for a while now..  ( 06-26-13 )  Well these photos right here were taken by me while I was lighting the show. (Thank god for Multitasking skills) Though, there were a lot of b-e-a-utiful scenes that I just wanted to shoot but since I was doing booth shooting and lighting I couldn’t possibly click the shutter every second. Haha. 😀

BayaNiRizal, Formerly known as Ciento Cincuenta—is a play-tribute to our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal on his 150th death anniversary—this was my first production as an official member of this University-Theater company. Though It’s still considered as a work-in-progress but out of all USALT‘s plays, this has been one of those whom I consider as my baby.  Besides being the lights designer, I’ve also acted as the anti-“Donya Victorina”, co-written one of the plays “Ibarra” and we (my fellow batchmates) collaborated with the “Magulangs” (senior members) to stage this production. This has been one of my proud moments as a member.

So, there are nine short-plays and each run features five selected plays, so as not to drag the audience. These photos are the recently staged short-plays ;  “Ibarra” ,  “Sisa” , “Kapitan Tiyago” ,  “Maria Clara” and “Miss Philippines” (Miss Philippines is another shortplay coming from another production in USALT’s : Eksena 5)

— Okaaaay enough with the “my-on-and-on-chibbles” ——
No, but seriously this is play is awesome.  you could check everything else here —> USA Little Theater’s WordPress. & here USA Little Theater’s Facebook

SEAFDEC, Guimaras Island

Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center  (SEAFDEC)

After watching the movie YES OR NO 2  (Les movie) I’ve been addicted to Fisheries and Agriculture.  (Something Random)   —–  Anyway..  Hahahahaha..

Let’s move on..  On June 1, 2013 – My theater folks and I went to Guimaras for our “Year-end-celebration-vacation”
We were supposed to stay at Raymen Beach Resort but decided to stay on the other resort (Alubihod Cove) which was just right next to Raymen’s.  (I’ll try to make another separate post on both Raymen and Alubihod Cove)

This was my 2nd time in Guimaras with the USALTees (Theater Company). So we decided to go island hopping and visit the ones that we haven’t seen/been to.

After countless visits on the same island/caves every time I go Island Hopping.. This was the first time I’ve been to the SEAFDEC.. a 20 minute “PAMBOAT” ride from Alubihod beach. Since I was super thrilled and excited to roam around the area.. I took a lot of photos and forgot to take a good look at those big groupers (Lapu-Lapu) 😦

– If you know Jennifer Lawrence the girl who portrayed Katniss Everdeen in the movie The Hunger Games. During her interview with Ellen Degeneres she said that she wasn’t afraid of sharks but was afraid of a Grouper that was as big as a Volkswagen. – :O  (Here’s the link to that ep..)

Villa Igang Beach Resort, Guimaras Island

The day after the Flying of the 15k lanterns, I went to the Island of Guimaras again.  (May 25, 2013)

This is actually my 2nd time coming to Villa Igang and actually slept here for the night.
Villa Igang is located at Poblacion, Nueva Valencia, Guimaras.
After arriving at the port in Guimaras
– You can either rent a “multi-cab” if you come with a group.
– You can either rent a “tricycle” if you come in 3’s or 5’s and with little luggage.
– or ride a jeep if you’re saving money (Haha) 😀

But I wouldn’t really recommend this place to Foreigners, Filipinos or  those who are “allergic” to dirty bathrooms, like me, and to those who expects 5 star accommodations.  (ex. Hot showers, Fresh Towels, Free Toiletries, Aired Pillows etc..)

But putting those negative things aside, For those adventurous people who just wants to visit or wants to stay for the night despite those unclean bathrooms, Haha. There are, (I guess) a lot of places to go to and a lot of things that you could do.

The first thing you’ll see when you arrive in the resort is the way to the butterfly garden which also leads you to the cottages/rooms, if you don’t want to pass through the garden, it’s fine you could just take the other way.. 😀

They also have a place if you wanna go cliff diving, our room was just close to the cliff. I think there were about 3-4 rooms available near the cliff diving place.. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to jump since I was afraid of heights. Hahaha.
But my friend did, and he actually jumped right after we had placed our bags in the room. Hahaha.

There’s also this Mangrove route which is the best part of Villa Igang for me. Well, next to the Cliff diving part.
Gave me chills when we were passing through those bamboo-wood-made-bridges..

They also have swimming pools. A place for Kayaking and I think you could also rent a Jet ski? (Not sure)

If you wanna go Island Hopping I think that it would be better If you go to the other beach resort (Raymen Beach Resort) –> It’s just near Villa Igang so you could go early in the morning or whatever time you want to go Island hopping.. 😀

I hope I’ve helped you (If ever you were looking for a review on Villa Igang)
Though, It’s not the usual “COMPLETE REVIEW” (Since I suck at that, My apologies) 😀
 – if you do have some comments/reviews about Villa Igang, Please don’t hesitate to type in your comment/review. 😀

Here are my photos during my stay in Villa Igang. Most photos are taken near the cliff and on the cliff..

Flew more than 15K Lanterns for Guinness World Record!

“Inaugural Light of Peace Event in the Philippines: World Peace through Inner Peace”

On ze 24th of May, I went to the University of the Philippine Visayas campus in Miagao City.

Since this was just my 2nd time flying a lantern, I have never seen lanterns this many “lit and set free” at the same time. Well, Talk about Mind F*ck (Excuse me) 😀
(For more details about the Event: ( Inquirer Visayas , World Record Academy )

Anywhoo, I brought Enrique (canon 10d) along w/ me, but those  “ERROR 99”  just won’t stop plus the fact that the mirror inside keeps on getting stuck and closing.  I even brought my film cameras which I had later realized that the event would start at around 6PM it would be fine if I had those high ISO rolls with me..
All I had were ze 200’s and one B&W 400..  This was such a huge BUMMER..

So in the end I borrowed my friend’s (Kat) dslr  and volunteered to take their pictures.. Thanks KAT! 😀
I have taken too many blurry pictures, too many of my friends’ pictures..  and I have even reached the point of forgetting the feeling of being there.. 😦
But the fact that I was there and being one of the “15thousand” who helped break the record was enough. (Hihihi)

Camera Used: (Canon EOS Rebel T1i/Canon500D)

I hope you enjoy a few of my photos on that day.. 🙂

Batad ’10 & ’11

I was born in this little town/place called “Batad” somewhere here  –> Google Map <–
Haha, anyway..  Here’s some photos of our friendly-vain Mother Pig and Baby Pig.
I also posted a photo of our old and cool junky car whom I have named “Rusty Jimmy”
But I have no idea if it’s still working..
My mom had it made so that whenever we would return here in the city,
people there could use “Rusty Jimmy” to run errands for my mom..

Thanks for dropping by Blogger, Phlogger and Reader!

Singapore ’11

My parents and I went to visit my brother and his family in Singapore.. (2011)

I had a lot of underexposed photos which needed a bit of fixing..
thus the B&Ws.. a lot of low quality photos too..
Never had a chance to go out on my own though.

There’s always next time. I hope to see you soon Singapore. 😀

Multiply Reincarnates Into a Social Shopping Hub

Hi Hi Hello.

Since “Multiply rebooted its system last December..
Getting rid of its Social Network and now focusing on being the “Social Shopping Hub” for Online Marketers.

Those who wasn’t able to save their files from that site is now living in a world of fear. (That’s me) Mehehe..
Goodbye Photos, Goodbye.  😥
(Now, I fear for my photos on Facebook) But, I think it’s time to put my new 1TB WD Hard Drive  “Teeruh” to use!

So, while I’ve been saving all my photos from Facebook to “Teeruh” I decided to fix some of  the photos 
and upload it here on WordPress..

It’s not that great though.. But whatever.. 
(Still thinking of a good name for my new category)

Enjoy your day Blogger, Phlogger and Readers!
