Actually, I'm not sure of this bird's gender. What about you, can you tell?

Sungka



Sungka, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

Sungka is a game played in many Filipino households, at least during my childhood as this was our grandmother's favorite game. I wonder how many of our youth nowadays know about sungka. Or are they too engrossed with their PSP or Wii to even bother learning the game?

A Prisoner's Mother and Child

SeeItSunday.net

Mother and Child by Rodrigo Addu, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

This painting is not by me but by Rodrigo Addu, a prisoner serving 3 counts of reclusio perpetua. His painting is but one of the many artwork on display at the Marian Exhibit at Shangri-La Plaza which I had the opportunity to see yesterday. Aside from the prisoners' artwork which are for sale, religious art are also on display, most of them antiques and just for show. The event is a joint undertaking of Radio Veritas and Caritas Restorative Justice Ministry which aims to uplift the lives of prisoners. It runs from October 11 to 26.

What I found interesting about this piece is that it was made through wood burning. A guide actually told me that the end of a Katol or mosquito coil is used.

Little Ones



Currimao Children, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

I don't know any of these children but they walked up to me when they saw me taking pictures by the beach. And pose they did; they weren't shy at all.
