Playing with the Lensbaby

Using the lensbaby isn’t exactly a walk in the park, but it is even harder when indoors at night. When I got to borrow one from M+K (more like take since they hardly use it anymore ;)), I was just too excited I couldn’t stop trying anyway. I think it explains how I badly lost […]

Pisay ’96 Streetkids Christmas Party, Year 3

We’ve done this twice before, and we’re doing it again. The Pisay ’96 Streetkids Christmas Party was conceived to be a simple celebration — ipadama natin ang Pasko sa mga batang malamang ay wala man lang madadaluhang “Christmas Party” ngayong taon. Kahit sandali lang. Batchmates, bloggers, random friends, even anonymous souls have pledged their support […]

Medical Mission for the Dumagats of Sierra Madre

It’s not everyday we get the chance to make a difference in other people’s lives. When our friends Mar and Mic pitched the idea of conducting a medical mission for the Dumagats of Sierra Madre, we were told it was going to be a lot different than similar activities. The Dumagat people basically thrived in […]

2007 Pisay ’96 Streetkids Christmas Party

Last year’s Pisay ’96 Streetkids Christmas Party was a success we did not expect, at least not as much as people noticed it. Those who’ve seen the YouTube video were somehow inspired to do something similar, while others left praises of encouragement that never cease to make us smile, to this day. When Hana and […]

A Smile of Hope

The Pisay ’96 Streetkids Christmas Party is a project of our high school batch, just like the medical missions and other things we’ve done the past year or so. We understand that the long–term merits of a simple party may be questionable, but to put a smile of hope in these kids’ faces is more […]

PISAY the Movie

Despite the fact that I almost haven’t watched a movie in a theater for more than six months now, Tulad Ng Dati being the lone exception, I have no excuse not to see this one: PISAY the Movie! A finalist in the 2007 Cinemalaya, this film is from Auraeus Solito, more known for his previous […]

Video killed the radio star…

But I’d still take my fifteen minutes of radio fame. This Sunday, you will hear my *ehem* frenulum linguae—limited voice over the airwaves as I talk about a topic I supposedly know nothing about. Or so they say. Almost expectedly, I will be with the legendary Jobarclix (yes, that jobarclix!) and two of my Pop […]

In the fields

From the same set of photos from our high school batch’s medical mission: This weekend, April 21 & 22, Pisay ’96 will be at the Hundred Islands in Pangasinan for an Earth Day coastal cleanup. We are looking for volunteers who can lend a hand and somehow make a difference for the environment. Needless to […]

Pisay ’96 Medical Mission

Similar to the Streetkids Christmas Party we had last December, our high school batch had a medical mission at Lubao, Pampanga last February. I’m not gonna explain nor justify our efforts, instead I’m gonna plead for support and progressive ideas as we take bolder steps to making a difference. Of course I took photos (mirror […]
