And it’s quite surprising how life-changing it is, in a certain point of view. Continue reading “10 Things I’m experiencing while working at home”
“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

Meralco Week 2010 – Elevation
Last March 2010, Meralco (Manila Electric Company, Philippines) celebrated Meralco Week dubbed “Elevation” and I have been going in the head office’s compound (Ortigas, Pasig) recently, around Business Solutions Center. In lieu of this month-long celebration, they have built their very own Transformer robot named Lightbringer, a company service vehicle.
Got my personal copy of Smashing Book!
After months of waiting straight from Germany, finally got my own copy of the popular design book “The Smashing Book” by Smashing Magazine
And what can I say, the almost complete guide for a web designer, developer & practitioner. A compendium of tips, guides, and modern standards from Typography, CSS, and Web Optimization
In lieu of the launching of my brand Antworks Digital Design & Concepts, the book really comes in handy – a definitive guide to modern web design standards
The late Senator Benigno “Ninoy” S. Aquino Jr. has been revered as a Filipino National Hero, one of only three to be recognized by the national government. He was also, for decades, been famously known as the arch nemesis of then strongman and dictator Ferdinand E. Marcos who ruled the Philippines for 20 years. The world watched as the two of the most brilliant minds in Philippine politics go head to head to a collision course that would lead to a momentous revolution, one kind that the world would see for the first time.

SM Mall of Asia Premier Cinema
The finale event of the Manila Design Week 2009, and most probably the notable. What has become (in its 4th run now) the premier annual event in the Graphic Design world here in the Philippines – Graphika Manila.
This was my first attendance since the event’s inception in 2006, together with the Orange & Bronze Creative team.
What surprised me in the event itself is when I found out the fact that Aram Beheshti, all the while, is Graphika Manila’s foremost inventor and big boss, who’s actually a schoolmate of mine in Don Bosco during college. We soon hope Orange & Bronze Creative team would be a sponsor on next year’s event!

Crowne Plaza, Manila Galleria
A colleague from O&B Creative, Mikko Claour and I went to the Adobe Creative Festival – Live in the Philippines. A short but really noted event.
This was actually Adobe’s official launch of Creative Suite 4 (CS4) here in the Philippines. Just recently, we in the Creative team of Orange & Bronze just purchased our own sets of Adobe CS4 Design Premium, and everything they’ve presented in the event are included in the tutorial packages included in the bundle. Not only that, it’s all available (and more) online here , so you really didn’t miss anything – except the in-your-face and real time demonstration of all that’s new in CS4.
