:wave: Just because you don't see me, doesn't mean I'm not here (nearly every day). :ninjaeat: As usual, I'm usually posting comments on other people's stuff rather than uploading more deviations. Of course, I regularly shoot events and occasionally do paid jobs (parties, family portraits, etc), so I actually do have deviations I could upload. But there just isn't enough time... time for artwork, plus time for my musical endeavors, plus time to read my stacks of books, time for gaming, photography, sculpting, painting, writing stories, planning community events, and many creative activities I want to do or learn. :faint:

When I realized that I have quite too many hobbies and not enough time, I wondered if I should cut down. :omfg:

Since May of last year, I've been secretly working on a few fictional stories. :plotting: It's my first time putting extremely serious effect into my written creative works, and I even end up fantasizing about having my stories turn into movies, then having hundreds of fans getting in line for my autograph. :lol: Even better if there were crowds of screaming fangirls just chasing after me, and I'd have 12 bodyguards try to hold them back... while they call for back-up! :giggle:

I've put most of my attention to this one story which is a sort of dark science-fantasy suspense violence drama which I humbly sometimes dream could be turned into a TV series or movie series. :lol: Thus as I compose the overall plot, I'm aiming to pace it into several story arcs, with the ability to "end" the story with any story arc. But of course, I'm mainly doing it for fun with only about a 5-20% chance of thinking of getting it published (since fictional writing isn't one of my creative specialties). If my drawing skills were better and I had time, I'd probably do it as an illustrated novel with some pretty clever stuff going on. :plotting:

For now, lets just say that it's a story about characters of various ages in a group of small towns, with their interactions and relations revealed gradually as the main characters pursue their goals. What makes things interesting is that some characters have this "supernatural" ability which took me months to come up with, and several more months to fine tune. :D (And still not done!) I've been gradually making notes (using the website/program/app called Evernote) on character back stories, the history of the supernatural ability, scenarios I want to incorporate, character profiles, etc. (I like to "think of everything" first before even attempting to write out the actual story.)

Good evening people. :nod:

If you haven't known, a year ago back in Aug. 2011 I had unemployment benefits for the first time. I searched for jobs for six months, then got hired by Dept. of Human Services. I've been working there for over sixth months, and it's an alright job. It mostly involves paperwork and other office stuff, much more than my previous office jobs (where I did a wider variety of stuff). Basically medical assistance applications come in, completed by clients, and I'm one of several workers who review them, request for any supporting documents from the clients to prove their eligibility, determine if they're eligible in any assistance programs, then enter the info into the state's online system. (I get to access all kinds of info on people who live in Hawaii. :shh: ) There's also other miscellaneous tasks I do, or will be doing when my training ends.

Aside from this "daily grind" :o, I tried getting more kinds fun out of my island in my free time. :fear: So even though work isn't that interesting, after work and on days off I find interesting community events around the island to photograph, like festivals, performances, and various spectator events. Since March or so I've attended about 20 public events, most of which the average person here never even knew about. :D That's because lately I've started checking the community events page in this free little newspaper that I've been getting at my work place, which also led me to checking out other "community calendars" online. People here complain that "there's nothing to do on Kauai" aside from common stuff people do like outdoor sports, movies, and bars, so I like how I'm proving (to myself at least) that if you just look carefully, you can find some interesting stuff to do on certain days. Also, photographing these events has been valuable training in helping me improve my photography skills, even if most of my photos end up only just mediocre-looking.

Hi everyone. :wave: Time for another attempt at a New Year's Resolution. :omfg: I'll make a bunch, to increase my chances of getting at least one resolved. :giggle:

They are...

:aww: Give more deviation comments to random deviants, say... 20 per day. It's a good way to hone my art-critiquing skills, and get me more exposed to other people's artworks.

:aww: Compose some cool, hopefully full-length, songs using FL Studio 10, which was kind of like my Christmas present to myself. I normally make just 1-2 minute jingles then lose interest, or have a hard time.

^^; Get my story/manga ideas fleshed out into either novellas or storyboards. This is harder, since I want every aspect well-planned before charging forth.

:jawdrop: Get a better job. This is on-going, so in a way it's only a matter of time, but on the other hand it also depends on whether good jobs are actually available on my wee little island.

:wave: I just recently joined Model Mayhem to help me find some models to do photoshoots with. :bulletgreen: www.modelmayhem.com/RtistRodne… :bulletgreen:

If anyone reading this would like to do a photoshoot with me on Kauai, please contact me here on dA or on MM. :aww: I'd like to build up my portfolio with photos ranging from fashion to glamour, erotic, cosplaying, Japanese lolita/EGL/kodona outfits, hairstyles, conceptual/artistic, general portraits, playful/action shots, etc. I'm pretty open to all kinds. I live on the east shore in Kapaa, and may consider driving as far as westside if scheduling permits. :nod: For now I'll stick to TFP (Time For Print/Pictures), where model and photographer do a shoot and share the photos for both of their portfolios without either paying the other. (Model gets practice with posing, photographer with shooting, and they both get photos out of it.)

I finally signed up at a blog site, after all these years of them being popular. :o And I got two...

This one for general stuff like funny pics, quotes, maybe even reblogged/reposted stuff, and
that one for more serious stuff like photo-journalism style mini-articles. :nod:

So far barely anyone visits them, so please go check them out. There's only a few minutes worth of stuff to look at so far. I'll be aiming to update both at least once a week.

If any of you have blogs too, please share them here.

But it hasn't been just free time. Despite being unemployed for a month already thus having free time, I have to keep up with the job-searching just to stay qualified for UI (unemployment insurance, which in a simple sense, is like free money for me just for applying for jobs). And the job-searching is sometimes like work in itself. Some of the online applications take a while to fill out. One, for a state job, took me hours to do. :faint: Of course that's because I wanted to be thorough in the short answer sections (especially since I was short one year of required work experience), and also because the directions said "be specific... don't use vague terms."

Some things I learned in the past 4 weeks:

:o That even though I'm not earning money, I'm also not spending much. (I used to spend on lunch, gas money, etc. when I was working.)
:nod: How to make a decent résumé. (I actually never made one before, and I followed the basic template that HireNetHawaii.com uses.)
:roll: How to spot (most) fraud job ads. (Took me a few weeks of learning the hard way, but now they won't fool me again.)
:nod: That the Evernote phone app (and PC version, and website version) is really useful for people like me who like to write, whether it's writing fiction, writing lists of things to do, writing "blogs" entries, writing notes for work/education, etc.

Speaking of Evernote, besides drawing and photography, another of my creative interests is writing, and I'm using Evernote to store my story notes, character profiles, etc. It lets me write on my PC or on my cell phone, while keeping all my files "synced" in "the cloud." (There are other similar apps and programs out there.) As for what I'm writing about, I'm still in the process of working out plots and characters for at least three completely different series. I was immensely inspired by Tsugumi Ohba's & Takeshi Obata's manga/anime series, "Bakuman," starting from back in May or so. Bakuman is about two teen guys working hard to create a successful manga series, and they end up making new series after new series in the pursuit of making an excellent one. The writing aspect, where the writer (of the two guys) struggles to come up with interesting creations, reawakened the creative writer in me. Maybe someday I'll even turn my story ideas into comic/manga series too.

One day, I finished college and found a job to devote my time towards. After having worked three different jobs in a row (consisting of several social service programs) at the same company through the span of a little more than four years, the third job ends tomorrow (August 15th). The jobs are grant-funded, and my current job's grant is ending, with no job openings that interest me. So, tomorrow is my last day working for the company, and I'm now looking for a new job.

Spring 2007 through summer 2009, I was a staff member for the company's after-school program for middle school kids. Me, with little experience with kids, had to overcome challenges in the job. Overall I enjoyed the field trips we took the kids on. fav.me/d19zv5s

Summer 2009 through spring 2011, I worked in a new position where many of the company's small service programs would be handled by one person (me), working under two separate supervisors that I alternated "being under." I did miscellaneous office work to support our youth programs, and did case management for clients applying for weatherization (making their homes energy efficient) and at-risk individuals seeking financial assistance. After about a year, a second weatherization program came along which needed staff, so my job was modified to work under its third supervisor for a bit. My job changed bit by bit over the years, and I even served as a substitute teacher's aide for our company's two preschools. Finally, funding for my position ran low in May 2011, to the point where my 40 hour work week turned into just 20 hours.

Mid-May 2011 through mid-August 2011, I was hired for a temporary 40 hour/week job at the company, where I recruited hundreds of applicants for utility bill assistance and processed their applications. Thus I was back to being a full-time worker, but the catch was that this position exists for only three months a year, and workers have to apply for it every year if they want to work for it. Now it's the night before my last day. There is still so much work to be done, which my supervisor and a few miscellaneous staff will have to finish before the program's deadline.

I'll miss the company, it's memorable co-workers, the field trips of after-school program, accomplishing many intensive reports I wrote, office meetings, monthly lunch parties, annual company-wide functions, annual Christmas dinner parties, getting to meet hundreds of clients, gigantic work projects conquered up to the final minute, doing outreach events around the island, the cute preschool kids calling me "Mr. B," and the overall feeling of belonging to a place where my skills were put to good use.

And so the artist that you know me as, has also become proficient as an office worker / social worker. Wish me luck in finding my next career.

Happy New Year! :nod: I'm still around as usual. I don't believe in New Year's Resolutions because if there's a change you should do, you should do it right away instead of waiting for New Year's Eve. :omg: Nevertheless, I make a semi-resolution this year, :XD: of trying to do something art-related every day from now on. :faint: These will be either drawing something, photographing something, or doing administrative duties to further my big art projects.

:bulletred: Jan. 1st: made a new folder on my desktop to put in pics that I need to print out (planning on finally posting more photographs/etc in my room). The folder is still empty. :XD: It's still an art-related action though. ^^;

:bulletred: Jan. 2nd: made another empty folder. :XD:

:bulletred: Jan. 3rd: made a journal entry on this art website. :work: Still art-related! :lol: Maybe later today I go draw something for a change.


In other news, since July or so I got my first smart phone, which is an HTC Droid Incredible. :wow: It's pretty good (I can't really compare it to anything cuz I haven't experienced smart phones before), although has a few bugs here and there, and the way it's designed makes it difficult for a person to take a photo of himself/herself. :fear: Typing with the touch screen was kinda hard for me (meaning it would be even harder for non-tech-savvy folks) for the first few weeks, mainly cuz the virtual keys on-screen are tiny until you turn the phone sideways. Anyways, I like the game Angry Birds. :meow: I also installed a cell phone holder in my car to make it easier to integrate my Incredible when using its GPS navigation map, and also because Hawaii now has a hands-free cell phone law. (It's now illegal for drivers to merely hold an electronic device in hand while driving, even though it's still legal to hold a big dusty dictionary, or Double Whopper burger, or a passenger's shaking arm, while driving. :omfg: )

It's been slightly over a year since I last made a journal entry here. :wow: And I have the same job that I mentioned in my previous entry, thus I've completed a whole year of being the Multi-Services Coordinator. It's been alright, with some changes over the months. Starting this past April I started working for a third supervisor! :omfg: (Supervisor = boss = program director.) So now when I fill out certain forms, I need all three of my bosses to sign it in a little space meant for only one signature. :lol: I still work 8 hours a day, just that my hours have changed to fit all three of my programs.

In more art-related news, I did put my computer skills, writing skills, and art skills all to good use at my job. From about January up until August, one of my supervisors assigned me to create the next issue of our company's newsletter. I had seen several past issues, created by various program directors, so I had a good idea of what it should consist of. And it took so long because I only had a few hours a week to work on it, and also because it was one of those tasks that really isn't supposed to be assigned to me (because it's not "part of my job description") but I did it anyway because one of my supervisors told me to, so technically it's an order I must obey. ^^; And so, I created various little articles about what's been going on at our company, :evillaugh: along with the traditional mini-biographies of new employees (which usually takes up the last page, but we haven't had anyone do the newsletter for so long that the "new employees" had accumulated to span several pages). :XD: Since it came out to be a 13-page newsletter (compared to the usual 4-6 pages of previous issues) with coverage of many fun events we had over the past year, co-workers were impressed and gave me lots of compliments. :blush:

In even more art-related news, late last year (around fall or winter) I finally got my very own digital SLR camera. :omfg: My brother picked it and ordered it for me (and later I paid him cash for it). I can't remember why, but I went with it cuz the camera pleased me quite well. :XD: It's a Canon EOS T1i, which is kind of a "beginner SLR" compared to the massively expensive kind these days, but it was fairly new when we got it (by now there's its successor, the T2i :o ) and I liked its pretty huge, bright monitor, and it's ability to shoot HD video. (I shot a few small clips, and found that my laptop isn't even good enough to play them smoothly. :XD: ) It's a good thing too that we got this camera for me (while he still has his own, TWO digital SLR cameras), cuz I photographed so many events this year (a birthday, two trips, two Kauai outings, three weddings, etc) that by now I'm completely comfortable with my T1i, and can pretty much jump into almost any situation and start shooting with the right settings. I tell you, after years of shooting with film SLR cameras (from my high school days in the late 1990's, all the way up to 2006!), to finally getting a decent compact digital camera (summer of 2007!), to finally getting my own digital SLR camera, I suddenly feel like I can "hold my own" compared to the many other photo hobbyists and freelance photographers out here. :nod:

And if you noticed a few of my latest deviations (from months ago ^^; ), I used my T1i to shoot pics from my Japan trip. I still have yet to post other pics I shot, such as my trip to England back in May, along with some other fun stuff. :XD:

I have a new job position at my work place. :dance: A few of you already know this, but I wanted to wait a week before announcing it so I can say a few things about how the job is like so far.

Last week I applied for the opening of Multi-Services Coordinator, which does involve working in a variety of services in my company. I believe I was the only one who applied :w00t: but nevertheless I still had to go through the entire application process, job interview, etc. (It's a breeze by now though, cuz this was my fifth time applying for a job at this same company--that is, a different position each time. :XD: ) Anyways, I started at the beginning of this month. I still work Mondays thru Fridays, with the same supervisor in the afternoon. However, that's only for 4 hours. For an additional 4 hours in the morning, I have a different supervisor. :wow: I'm the only one in my company who has two supervisors for the same job. :lol: (Some people at my company have two supervisors, but for two separate part-time jobs.) My job is kinda like two part-time jobs anyway.

Anyways, in the morning I do scheduling, home visits, outreach, and other work for two social service programs my company runs. One program helps needy families save electricity by replacing their major appliances (water heater, fridge, and light bulbs) with energy-efficient ones... for free! Another program helps needy elderly people receive financial help for various necessities that aren't covered by other programs.

Then in the afternoon (after lunch break :hungry: ), I work with my original supervisor with all the youth-related programs our company has, including after-school program (my original job here), the early learning centers, and any other child/student-related programs. I'm supposed to be doing various types of admin work (collecting reports, supply ordering, recruitment, outreach, etc.) as a sort of assistant for my boss, but for now he's making me continue to work after-school program up until he hires a new staff for my former position. :D

I don't earn that much more money per hour (only a few dimes more), but at least I'm now working 8 hours a day instead of 5 or 6. :nod: That still means I'm now earning quite a lot more money overall. Maybe I could celebrate by inviting all my online deviant friends to a restaurant. :boogie: Of course, none of you live on the same island as me. :ohnoes: Oh, speaking of which, if anyone ever visits Kauai, please contact me. :D I can take you on some simple, splendid hikes :D as well as show you some cool places to visit. :nod:

My vacation trip to the Philippines in the past few weeks went pretty well. :floating: I went with my dad & brother on the Sunday before Christmas, so the sights were already quite festive. The plane ride from Hawaii to the Philippines was about 10 hours long. :boogie: Long flights are interesting, especially when passing through the International Date Line... it's like a time warp. :wow: We left Hawaii at about 1 pm, and arrived at about 5 pm... yet the flight was 10 hours, so it was like time moved super slowly inside the plane (with a looooong afternoon). Not to mention that when the plane landed, it was the next day. :wow:


:floating: Start of the Trip: Manila :floating:


Upon arriving at the airport in Manila (the capital city of the Philippines), as usual I got the uneasy alienation of not knowing Tagalog language. (I just know a very few basic words here and there.^^; ) But at least everyone there knows at least basic English phrases, since they learn English in elementary & high school. (And extensively in college, if they go college.) And nearly everything written (signs, menus, notices, etc) are in English. :nod: Most of the time we just let our dad handle the Tagalog speaking.

Anyways, we spent our first two nights in Manila, at the Kabayan Hotel closest to SM Mall of Asia. Yup, we went to Mall of Asia! :D It's the biggest mall in Asia (and 4th biggest mall in the world), made of up 4 huge buildings as well as a line of shops/cafes (Entertainment Mall) next to an esplanade/seawall beside Manila Bay. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SM_Mall_… The place was so huge we cruised it for a few hours and barely covered a fraction of the place. :lol: I liked how it's Entertainment Mall section has a lot walkways, a giant fountain, and playground. :glomp: And security officers there were fully armed with shotguns or assault rifles... usually with their finger already at the trigger. :excited: Not to mention customers are checked for weapons before entering the indoor areas. Anyways, we bought some clothes at the SM Department Store (nicely priced compared to American prices) :D, and had lunch at the Congo Cafe. :o The workers there
were dressed up in various safari outfits :lol: and there were jungle decorations inside. They served a variety of meat & seafood.

I love how nearly all workers in the mall stores, restaurants, supermarkets, fast food places, hotels, and other modern service stores are young people in their late teens & early 20's. :excited: It's great cuz as a group, their English is better than older people (good for non-Tagalog-speakers like me), and they're more pleasing to my roving eyes. :love:


:rudolph: Ground Transportation :rudolph:


Our ground transportation from the airport to the hotel was a taxicab. I think all ground transportation drivers charge flat rates rather than using a meter (to charge by the distance). Thus, we always paid up front... or during the ride. ^^; It's cool watching drivers collect money & make change with the passengers while driving in fast, crazy, unpredictable Manila traffic. :omfg: Every minute I'd think "Whoa! that was close!" when several vehicles switch lanes at once WITHOUT turn signals, while being just mere inches from each other, while pedestrians are crossing the street, etc. :faint: There were even passengers sprinting across the road, and jumping into moving buses :omg: or jumping off of them. :lol: And unlike in Hawaii... in Hawaii/America, other drivers honk/beep their horns at you to show that they hate you (cuz you pissed them off). But in the Philippines, it seems like drivers honk/beep their horns at you to show that they care
about you. :love: Thus beeping is extremely common. They beep to simply give other drivers and pedestrians a head's up that they're approaching or switching lanes. Usually it's a quick double beep. And yeah, despite the close proximity of the vehicles while driving, the lack of speed limits, less safety restrictions, aggressive driving tactics, and fast vehicles passing every slow vehicle (sometimes vehicles traveling towards each other both overtake others in the way, at the same time :D)... I have to say that drivers there are really good drivers. They've got skills that make the rest of us here in Hawaii seem like grannies. :lol:

Also, we rode a jeepney between the Kabayan Hotel and the mall. Just like the taxi driver, our jeepney driver collected money from everyone (about a dozen passengers) while driving. It took a while too, as he had to make change individually with several of the passengers, and did it all while looking at us thru his rearview mirror. :aww: My brother and I were quite humored/impressed, and my brother thought it was nuts/cool how the passengers pass their money up to the front, then pass change back. I imagine that people have to rely a lot on honesty, cuz even though it might seem like you could get away with pretending to pay your fair (or accusing someone else of not paying :giggle: ), it seems like the driver is super sharp at using the rearview mirror to check if everyone paid. And all while driving in fast, swerving traffic. :XD:

The Kabayan hotel is a pretty small, cozy place. The workers were mostly young adults (young workers again! :XD: ), mostly with college-age, skinny guys with American names. We had some poor service though, from NOT getting picked up by a hotel chauffeur from the airport (which was part of our package), to our room being prepped for only two people (even though the reservation was for three), to the breakfast server guy serving the girl in line behind me first, THEN me. :omfg: That was really offensive. I think he was sexist! Well I didn't know what he said (some line in Tagalog), but I'm sure it was some dumb thing. (My brother was ahead of me in line, and he, myself, and the girl behind me all asked for the same food selection when asked.) Anyways, if I knew how to speak Tagalog, I would have said something to embarrass him in front of everyone standing in line about to be served by him. :stab: Like "Ohhh, what is this?! You serve girls before guys, no
matter where they stand in line? :shakefist:" He was the least attractive male worker there too, so I wonder if he was trying to impress that girl by giving her special treatment. :unimpressed:

Anyways, from the hotel we went to a bus terminal to board a Partas bus early in the morning. Partas is one of the inter-province bus companies with big, air-conditioned buses with large baggage compartments on the outside/bottom of the bus. It had a TV at the front, near the ceiling, with speakers throughout the bus, and we watched a few American movies now and then. :nod: We were going to travel to the province of Ilocos Sur, to the area ("municipality") called Santa, where my dad grew up in. The national road we traveled (in the USA we'd call it an interstate road) went north from Manila, and close to the western coast as we entered Ilocos Sur. I enjoyed looking at the various sights, from huge billboards in the cities to fields of rice plants. The bus took several stops along the way (for restroom breaks at lil restaurant/shops), as well as a lunch stop at the province of Pangasinan, where Partas had an official, but rustic & simple, Partas bus stop.

We had about 15-20 minutes to buy & scarf down food from a lil cafe in there... which a few hours later caused me to have gas. :fart: And then, caused me to have diarrhea. :omfg: I basically spent the last hour and a half of the bus ride squeezing my butt cheeks together, and fighting off a "butt attack" every 10 minutes or so. :depressed: It was like... I was giving birth, but trying not to let the baby come out! :headache: So painful! I knew I had to rush to the bathroom as soon as we arrived to our dad's hometown (district of Magsaysay). Thus for the last part of the bus ride, I wasn't able to enjoy the scenery much. :D


:community: My Dad's Hometown, Relatives, and Old House :community:


We arrived at Magsaysay in the late afternoon, roughly 5 pm I think. Some of our relatives waited patiently at the little roadside bus stop for us. :aww: I barely recognized anyone in the group, ^^; but I knew that our three nephews would be in their mid-teens by now. (They were about 5 years old when I last saw them long ago.) I did recognize my two older cousins (in their late 30's I think) Arthur & Arlene there. Anyways we all hugged each other, and they helped us handle our mass of luggage. It was a really short walk really--just crossing the street, and walking on a road that forked into two. The left road went to the nearby coastal beach, and the one to the right was the street of "the house." Well, technically the house was one of those houses in between other houses (on all sides), so that you had to walk on pathways between the neighbor's houses to get there. And since relatives lived within walking distance (one family lived "in front" of the
house), there's a lot of foot traffic going on. :nod:

Anyways, there I was, my poop getting ready to burst out, ^^; walking down the street to the house. It's the house my dad grew up in, where my older cousins now live in (or at least do most of their cooking, cleaning, and hanging out at). One bedroom was for Arthur's kids belongings (at least temporarily while we were visiting?), another bedroom was for my brother & I to stay in, and the third bedroom turned out to be a small carpentry project my dad was working on... basically he built a lil bedroom in a big empty area in one of the two hallways in the house. :nod: That would be his room for the stay. The house itself is one story with cemented walls. Even the yards are covered with cement except for a few patches of soil for trees, probably for less maintenance. :clap: So yeah, when I arrived, I went right for the bathroom. The bathroom is quite makeshift, with actually two little rooms: one for the toilet, the other for the bath. After I "relieved"
myself, I felt all fresh and ready to explore! :wow: I felt like a new person. :aww: Better yet, my diarrhea was gone for the rest of the trip! :boogie:

The majority of our stay involved:

:bulletgreen: chilling at the house (literally, at least twice a day we'd just sit on plastic lawn chairs in the yard) :aww:
:bulletgreen: playing PS3 games or watching DVDs on PS3 with our four nephews, niece, and cousin (and adult relatives who sit/stand behind us to watch what was going on)... on my brother's PS3 & LCD screen that we brought along. :D
:bulletgreen: our dad doing more carpentry projects around the house (replacing cabinets, doors, etc), or leading our older relatives to do more cementing outside the house. Such a big spectacle... seeing like 10 men vigorously mixing cement right on the ground (technically, the already-cemented-ground in the front yard), all day long for a few days, and pouring/smoothing it out, and we'd have an equal amount of people just watching. :D
:bulletgreen: exploring the neighborhood within walking distance. I liked to say it was like being in an adventure RPG game, :dance: and I'll probably draw a fun map of the place someday.
:bulletgreen: occasionally going to the two shop-houses nearby. Those are lil grocery/goods shops built right at the front of people's houses, and sometimes they'd have a lil grill to cook some foods. :hungry:


:hug: More Funs :hug:


A few days into our trip, our relatives from England arrived. They came to rendezvous with us, although not at the exact same time. They included my only male cousin my same age, and his mom. The house right next door to our dad's childhood house is their own house (aka Auntie's house), which our Philippines relatives had been building & working on for the past few years.

And so when my aunt & cousin arrived, they wanted to furnish their Philippines house. :D My brother & I traveled with them to a department store in Vigan, and auntie "went mad" buying a sofa-seat-table-lamp set, a dining table & chairs set, stove, fridge, fancy lamp/clock, microwave, display dresser, etc. Interesting to note that she'd be buying all this for their house that they'd be staying in for just a few weeks. :lol: Of course, a few of our relatives would use the house for the rest of the year, and regularly hang out in it cuz of it's second floor balcony, etc. It's a pretty fancy, small but two-story, pink house. Our uncles/etc did more cementing in its yard (and laying a brick wall as a fence at one side) while aunt was there... and I'm not sure why but... ^^; it seemed like a popular idea for people's names to be etched into the semi-dry cemented areas. I was surprised when I saw the names of my brother, cousin, and myself on some of the cementing, even though we didn't help construct them. :lol: I think it was my dad's idea.

We took two drives to Vigan, the capital city of the province of Ilocos Sur. It was just north of Santa, and we'd cross a large bridge over a river to get there. Vigan is very Spanish-influenced, especially with its older buildings. There were lots of kalesas (calesas) there too, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalesa sometimes with 1-2 dozen of them lined up on a wide road, waiting for people to hire them. They're a nostalgic mode of transportation, consisting of a two-wheeled carriage (seats 2-6, depending on how skinny you are), a driver guy, and a single horse. :D

I also went (with just my cousin, aunt, and an uncle) to the city of Laoag, much farther up north. Mainly we went to a resort there, called Fort Ilocandia. (Turned out it's not associated with a fort/fortress. :o ) It's pretty big & fancy, with a LOT of recreational activities there for guests: three pools, golf driving range, archery field, paintball, casino, shopping, pools, beach volleyball, mini-boat rides, etc. They even have an ATV driving course on the beach! :wow: There were barely any guests, making it seem like a great getaway resort for people vacationing on the down low. :aww:

Most of our souvenirs are T-shirts. :D Actually, buying shirts & clothing in the Philippines is pretty fun, cuz a lot of the good stuff is so inexpensive compared to American prices on similar stuff. :clap: Next time I go, I'm gonna reserve even more room in my luggage for clothes I'll buy. :XD:


:santa: Special Events :santa:


Christmas 2008 was alright. I didn't receive presents (only one, waiting for me at home in Hawaii from my uncle & aunt), but I made a few friends happy by sending them gifts thru the mail just before I left for my trip. While on my trip, we spent Christmas Eve mainly just chilling at the house. On Christmas Day, we had a fancy lunch party at a nearby relatives house, with more relatives I've never seen before. :lol:

For New Year's Eve, we had a bulk pack of 100 mini rockets to light up the sky, as well as some of those huge, triangular-shaped "whistle bombs" that are SO loud. :omg: We also went to our relative's house where a pig was being roasted by constantly being turned over an open fire (lechon :D ), and an uncle fired a real assault rifle. :omfg: It was the loudest thing I heard all night! He surprised everyone, causing a commotion, and my ears were "ringing" for a while from the sound. :faint: Yup! In Hawaii you mainly just hear long stretches of firecrackers rapidly bursting. On the other hand, in the Philippines you hear a lot of explosions from rockets as well as gunfire. Thus, it sounds more like a war is going on! :excited:

Aside from those two holidays, we also attended a wedding. One of our older cousins there got married in the nearby church, and the reception was a block party at their house. :D Literally, people built a wooden structure over the road in front of the house to shelter long dining tables beneath them. :wow: Of course, most people don't have cars there, plus you could take a quick detour around the block, thus they were able to block the road like that.

And the most surprising event... a Christianing a.k.a. baptismal of a distant cousin's baby. (I'm not even sure how I'm related, but the baby's grandfather is my "uncle" who probably is an uncle in some way. ^^; ) And just a few hours before the baptismal ceremony, I was told by a bunch of people that I HAD to attend, because I was one of the "ninongs" aka godfathers. :omfg: Even more surprising was that the baby had over a dozen ninongs & ninangs (godmothers)... just like with the dozen or so other babies getting baptized at the church that day. :wow: Thus the altar area was quite packed with people. :nirvana: It was my first time being a godfather for someone. Basically we held lit candles (being careful to not get burned by the melting candle wax :dead: ) during the ceremony, then at the end we each used our thumb tip to draw a cross on the baby's forehead. :aww: Finally we headed to the baby's grandparents' house for a lunch reception (where I gave my gift money to the mommy). Later on I learned that as a ninong, I'm expected to send a gift every Christmas from now on. ^^;


:floating: End of the Trip :floating:


On our 2nd to the last day of the trip, my brother, our dad, and I rode another all-day, inter-province bus ride to Manila. Just for one night, we stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in Makati (a "business district"). Nice hotel! The workers spoke English, and the entrance had guards, metal detector, and drug-sniffing dogs to check every person entering. :D We did some shopping at the the small but fancy shopping malls very close by. Just like at Mall of Asia, these malls also had security guards at entrances to check for weapons :dance: as well as security officers patrolling , about one every 100 feet or so :o with either rifle or shotgun. :boogie: Makes the place nice and safe. :3 Also, we noticed there were considerably a lot more non-Filipinos at that hotel. We even saw a woman in a nearby mall who looked a lot like Jennifer Love Hewitt. :o

The next day, after shopping a lil more, we ate at a really cheap but really good buffet restaurant. :hungry: Worth going again! Then we took a taxi to the airport, where each of us got pretty affordable massages from an all-female massage & aromatherapy crew by the terminal shops. :nod: It was pretty good except, the women massaged us REALLY hard. :dead: My back & shoulders hurt for several days after that. ^^; But I'd do it again. :XD: Then we flew on the plane back to Oahu, and took a smaller plane back to Kauai.

Overall it was a pretty good trip. Pretty much the only thing I missed during the entire vacation was using my cell phone. :love:

I'll be gone for three weeks... :ninja: My brother, our dad, and I are flying to the Philippines for a vacation trip. :floating: It'll be my fourth time visiting there, and last time I went was 11 years ago. :o

So yeah, we're flying to O'ahu this Sunday, to board a bigger :o plane that'll fly for roughly 10 hours to Manila International airport. Long flights are fine with me as long as I get to get up and walk around now and then.

We'll be meeting up with (what I believe to be) my only male cousin who is the same age as me, and his mom (my dad's sister), who are from England. :D They're basically vacationing the same time as us so we can hang out. I haven't seen them in about 11 years as well I think.

Anyways, I'll be back on January 11th... with pics to upload. :wow: Everyone be good while I'm gone! :XD:

EDIT: Okay... I found it! :w00t: It was on a box, under a table, out of sight, at my workplace. ^^; But now that I have it back, I feel like I would have been okay if I never found it, cuz then I'd get to replace it with a much better camera. :XD: Anyways, thank you all for the empathetic comments. :hug::hug::hug::hug:



:tears: I lost my compact digital camera. :nirvana: I can't find it anywhere, and I believe it was either...

:bulletred: stolen from my bag by a stranger, while it was in our company van (cuz I sometimes leave the van unlocked).
:bulletred: stolen from my bag by one of my kids I work with (which I kinda doubt, cuz I figure they'd know better than to steal something that expensive from me).
:bulletred: misplaced somewhere at my workplace (which I doubt cuz I don't leave it laying around).
:bulletred: misplaced somewhere at my house, even though I checked the obvious places like my room, and every place where I set my work bag (which is where my camera is kept in).

I miss that lil bugger. :( It was my first digital camera too, and I only got it about 1 1/2 years ago. Anyways, if it doesn't turn up in a few days, I'll just have to... :evillaugh: buy a new one. I'm already looking at his "big brothers" (same brand, similar models, but more advanced) and again I'm getting impressed at how good compact digital cameras are becoming these days. There are even cameras that shoot in RAW format for under $300. :hungry: Anyways, right now I already have my eye on 2 awesome Panasonic cameras in the 200 dollar range. :D
