What Millennials Must Learn from Old School.

Lets cut the chase, read below and see the no brainer we generation xyz have experience.

1. Courtesy.
2. Socialize.
3. Etiquette.
4. Read 1 to 3.

Advances in technology does not mean better human interaction both to fellow people and its surrounding. The convenience of technology made everyone dull with less interaction and more of just tapping the screen with 2d emoticons.

What is missing? A genuine life.

Go out without a camera, stay offline. Do not tell friends you did this, done that. Just enjoy the moment. Do you really need a picture to remember the best sunlight? You are missing the warmth of the sun. Or memories now are stored in circuits in some server people called “cloud” storage.

Enjoy nature. Enjoy people. Enjoy life.



Back to Ballpen. Listen to Your Guts Not Opinions

I started drawing using a ballpen/ballpoint. Stepping in High School someone made a negative comment of using ballpoint for drawing. This affected me for years that serious art should be drawn by pencils, charcoal, oil, watercolor, pastel and others. But not ballpen.

Then I came upon professional artist using ballpen for their art. Realistic portraits and landscape. Suddenly I found myself going back to my roots and making effort to perfect my ballpen skill because I have a lot of catching up. You can see my early sketches in this blog I used pencils and it shows my struggle with pencils. I have to excel on pencil to make it because I love to draw details.

I hope I get it right this time using the pen I love since childhood.


DrawBack: 2005 IT Admin Facing Security Challenge


Security threats back in 2005 and before is still the same problem facing ICT today and growing. There are only a few good guys defending the network infrastructure and sadly, most of the attack are within.

The Philippine Airforce F-5 Freedom Tigers last flight was in 2005 September. A demeaning tow to its final resting place to be scrapped, leaving the airspace virtually defenseless and left to a handful subsonic S211 to handle the task of protecting Philippine skies from foreign threats. The threat within are politicians that stole peoples money and gotten away with it. But I salute the pilots to perform their duties against the odds.

The same salute I give to the handful of ICT staff who keep the network free from security threats.

Fight the good fight. Enjoy.
