Farewell Dragon Lady

Nov 22, 2011
My fave author passed away. Good bye Dragon Lady, I shall miss you. I hoped you'd write more books. :-(
I shall forever cherish the stories that shaped and comforted me.

Un-disciplining our kids

Do you allow your kids to laze in public seats playing angry birds on your or their iPhones?
I see a growing number of young children who have not a care in the world but the game they play. I was in DFA last week and there were a lot of kids waiting, being literally dragged by their parents because their are so engrossed in whatever consul their eyes were glued on. This picture of a girl is in a church lobby. The man besid her is trying to talk to her but she is non-responsive. (I heard her other siblings are not so respectful to elders)

What are the parents allowing their children to become?
When I was young, my parents will not allow any of us to be unproductive. Oh, we can play. We are encouraged to have sport, music or some hobby. We can make a mess but they want us to learn and have an output. My siblings and I played a lot and made a mess of the living room a lot. My mother was fine by that as long as we moved our bodies and build our creativity. I spend countless hours in my room scrap booking or beading but that was ok as long as I home my creativity.

These games on consul are fine. They're fun too but they keep oneself isolated in the midst of a crowd. Besides, it's lack of social etiquette. When they grow up, they'll still be glued to a gadget and not much on socialization and manners. And these kids will think it's ok because their parents allowed them to in the first place.

For the parents, they are spoiling their children this way because they can't baby sit them well. True or false? Giving them your iPhone or android to play with until all hours is not love. It's opposite. It's like hating to deal with the problem so you let the gadget handle them. Well, newsflash. These gadgets will handle them to social decline.

So, parental tip. Give them time to play with the iPhone/cellphone/android. Let them play but not in public and certainly not for too long. An hour or two tops at home. Oh, and don't forget to teach them social etiquette and manners. Discipline them if need be.
If you can't handle your child, parent, you need therapy.

My Davao Vacation 2011

One word to sum it all up: Food!

I've been away for about 3 years and Davoa is changed. There's so many food places and my relatives are bringing me to them. Wow, Davao=food!

After 10 days, it was sad to leave.
So I bring you Davao's skies.

My New Inspiration for New Show

Since most Lolitas are centered on Alice, I thought to make a Wonderland show. Of course, half the show would be about Pirates.

It's been so long since I last sketched.

When your hand needs lots of practice, my eyes nearly weeps. 
 I'm sure my sketch teacher will fail me for this quick sketch.  
I'll have to practice again.
Sewing a lot didn't help. I need to learn to sketch again with cleaner lines and with defined details . These have to be cleaned up with photoshop.

9 course Thai dinner


In ordering Thai food, ask what the house specialty is. They may have a set course in line. Trying it will be best. Usually, the restaurant asks how hot you want it. Best to order mild to medium.
