Hi everyone! I know I haven’t posted anything new lately. Preoccupations and limited connectivity floored me these past few days so I put aside this blog to focus on work. I usually go out on weekends to hang out with a few friends or watch a play whenever my thin wallet allows me to pay for the tix. It’s good that this rainy season keeps me grounded at home so I have enough time to ponder on life and what to do with it. Also, it helps me unleash my creative prowess. Stuck at the apartment, I usually turn the music on and take a video of myself singing. Aside from that, I found another way to put my artistry to use. I’ve always considered myself a visual artist, so I thought of combining this skill with my other passion: poetry. Cursive and calligraphy have become popular art forms and I’ve seen a lot of Instagram posts on letter -writing. So, I thought, why not? Hence, I decided to create my own way to somehow introduce Kinaray-a poetry with oriental twist. For my weekend project, let me take out my brushes and gouache and drawing pad to scribble metaphors into 5-7-5 syllables.
The image above is an example of what I did last Saturday. I’m planning to fill my watercolor pad with haikus written in my own language which is Kinaray-a. How cool is that?

Do you have you own weekend project?
