Don’t let her refreshing green eyes fool you. It’s not the freakish limb that makes her a monster. It’s what she did to her twin sister. Jealousy can literally drive you mad with just a touch of her reptilian hand. See her sister at ward four in the Mental Institute for proof. The sister is lucky considering what she did to others. Jealousy can suck the life out of you with a kiss. Ever wondered what happened to her boyfriend? Now you have an idea.

(I kinda like creating comic book characters. I remember creating some when I was younger. This one I did for Illustration Friday:Monster.)

Bright Lights

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone
Who will save me from all I’m up against out in this world
And maybe, maybe, maybe
You’ll find something that’s enough to keep you
But if the bright lights don’t receive you
You should turn yourself around and come on home

Lyrics from Matchbox Twenty's Bright Lights

I remember a first-and-last date with this song. I was asked what type of music I liked and I mentioned Matchbox Twenty. It was played for me but I didn't get to listen to the music because we had a great talk.

Ikaw, Araw

Masarap siguro
magkubli sa ulap
at ako naman sa dilim.
Sabay na lang tayo
tumula't mangarap
kahit hindi na marating.

Hindi magtatagal
ikaw ay sisikat
at hindi na matatanaw.
Ako'y mapapagal,
tulog ang ulirat
patuloy ka sa lang dalaw.

Habang kaya ko pa
munting handog sa 'yo
tulang piniga sa ulo.
Sana alam mo na
sa bawat silip mo
paligid ko'y kulay ginto!

Thanks to Shai for the subject and the camera. I ran out of batteries.

I was supposed to get a tribal henna tattoo in time for the beach trip this weekend but I've been too busy.

So I just drew a female figure on my skin with a pen for this week's Illustration Friday:Tattoo.

Hmmm, this reminds me of the 80's.

First Summer Tripping

Originally uploaded by C Saw.
I have officially started my summer season. Mine is usually marked by getting away from Manila.

We went to Baguio last weekend. Although I have been there a couple of times, I never got to enjoy the place before unlike last Saturday. We used to only have stop-overs at Baguio but not as the actual destination. I can say it was my first time to discover the place.

It was also my first time to ride a horse. I even wore a cowboy hat to complete the look. It was the firt time I went up to a vendor, ask if I could borrow his balloons so I can take a picture of myself with those. It was the first time a poem was presented to me, although not the first poem inspired by me. There were a number of firsts for me in this trip that I'd rather not write here.

But that's just the first trip for this summer. Batangas and Subic later!

As a kid, whenever I saw a dead cockroach, I'd pick it up and throw it at my brother or scare him with it. He used to cry and scream like crazy everytime I do that. I almost always die of laughing.
