Here comes Hercules

Dear Internet Surfers,

Today is my Mommy's birthday and so we took the family out to lunch. While roaming around the buffet aisles, I got into thinking. Ice cream. Plain brown Sprinkles. Spicy tuna sushi. Boy, those dumplings over there are looking mighty tasty. Did that guy over there really filled up his entire plate with fried bananas. Holy crap! Her Christmas themed earrings lights up every other second ... I HAVE NO MUSICAL TALENT!!!!

Was I one of those kids whose asian parents forced into learning the piano, saxophone, flute, or those other shiny objects that I have no idea what their names are? NOPE. I kinda wish they did, but all this is going to change.

Zordon: How so?
Zordon: Huh?
Me: A harmonica of course!

Look at this beauty that I just ordered!

(It's actually a Key C I got.)

Now it's going to be great. The internet is filled with magical information with lots of how to instructions. I just have to keep on practicing!

Can't wait till Hercules comes in the mail! Peace out homies!


PS. Life List #28 Past the CBEST and CSET: CHECK! :D

hoy hoy!


Boy, I'm stuffed! I ate and ate with my fam bam, watched some Ghostbusters, and was bitten a couple of times by a parrot. Haha... I never learn. But I hope you all had a great day!

So a couple days ago, I decided that these big heads needs some bodies to go with.

Toddles yo!

My blog needed a make- over... I recycled some old work, made some space ships, mixed in my love for clam chowder, and added a lovely picture of myself.

Magical Source, Mystic Force!

Bendis: We're gonna die.
Mal: We are not gonna die. You know why? Because we are so... very... pretty. We are just too pretty for God to let us die. Huh? Look at that chiseled jaw!

-Firefly (2002-2003)

Mostly every morning I eat my breakfast while watching Power Ranger's Mystic Force. It's actually very much watchable, fun to watch, and a good way to start off your morning! If you count 11:30am still morning.

Life List #27

27. Better my Adobes Illustrator skills.

What better way to practice adobe illustrator than to draw the original cast of Stargate SG-1?

This took me awhile but I'm happy with the results! I love playing around with Illustrator and I want to get better at this! So I'll try to make something every week (hopefully!) :D


For some reason, I started to watch Stargate....and it is AWESOME! I'm just on season 2 and the story lines are wonderful! I love how they tie in the mysteries of our own world to their show! Worm Holes, alternate universe, Thor and Ra were actually aliens from another world?, say what!?!?! Yup! It's all there!

Toodles and go watch it for yourselves! :D

Rainbows are visions but only illusions...

Yipppeeeeee! I finally got the pictures of my final sculpture project for my basic sculpture class back in the fall quarter. :D

THE FINAL PROJECT: I don't remember the exact assignment but it was something about doing an installation piece or a piece that works with the environment.

lots of neon colored papers.
hot glue gun.

1. Find an icosahedron pattern online.
2. Print paper.
3. Use sharpie to make thick lines.
4. Scan and print copies.

5. Cut.
6. Fold.

7. Tape together.

8. Gather your coolest friends.
9. Massive Sweat Shop Time. Repeat Step 1-7 52 billion times!

10. Hot glue gun to wall.


BITS AND PIECES of my report:
For this final project, I was inspired by the work of the site of the United Visual Artist called “Canopy,” which presented a 90 meter long sculpture submitted above ground. It was made of thousands of identical geometrical metal shapes that could reflect light and gave the viewers an experience of “walking through the dappled light of a forest.” I liked how having this massive amount of simple shapes could create this experience for the audience.

I liked the idea of making something out of objects that could easily be found at home and can be reproduced easily by others. I felt that by using color paper, it gave off this nostalgic feeling. The use of a variety of colors also adds to the playfulness of the work.

I wanted to have 3D objects coming out of the wall that takes viewers into another dimensions. I chose to have geometric shapes because these shapes reduce reality into simpliest forms. The purpose of this work was to take the viewers away from reality and into a simple and playful world.

ARG! :)

Thanks a bundle to Diane, Vivian, Carl, Natalie, and Virginia for all their help with the folding, cutting, and taping together these wonderful and colorful little things! :D

Well ahoy there mates! :)

Happy belated New Years?

It's time for Groovin' Thursdays (but actually Groovin' early Sunday!)

An oldie but goodie! Most of the time I have no idea what they are saying, but doesn't the tune just brighten up your day?

Something I made in January...

I'm to the left and a Chau to the right.

This was my insert head cutout for our first ever Mr. CKI male beauty pageant! We watched our very own male members dance without shame, perform their own talent act, and answer very "tough" questions! All money went to charity (UNICEF and DSSLP). Guest could come and write whatever sayings they want in the black quote bubble thing (I'm not sure what to call it). The board also comes with an eraser and different colored chalks attached to the back.

Who wouldn't want six pack abs, a perfect body, and some itty bitty shiny gold shorts?

As the famous American General Douglas MacArthur said to the Filipinos during World War II, "I SHALL RETURN!"

(oh! thanks Tommy for the photo!)
