Hello dear friends. Well I am guilty for abandoning this old account. It has been a really a long while since that last time I updated this. I am really really really sorry about it. I have been facing some life difficulties on all sorts of things and so, I'd like to thank you all for dropping by and appreciating my work.

But I my works that are now posted in my gallery are outdated. The recent one... I never finished it. I'm shameful! I'm sorry. Due to time, money and management... also the lack of inspiration, would have led me to stop. A couple months ago, I was really about to give up on my career, I almost did. Manila had made me feel useless and worn out at some point in life. The cycle was endless and I getting sick of making me do the same old thing because they see that I am only good at it. I was not able to do other things I'd like to try but I always get told,

"You're never meant to design."
"You don't fit to be an interior designer, why not be a furniture designer instead?"
"You don't have taste in design."
"You have no talent about design."

It hurts but I let it go and just keep on doing my own thing. More technical as per specifications, documentations, project management, construction detailing and whatever, I am pretty strong with that. I believe that a great design in an interior will show upon the details. Technical details. A design well thought of. So I stumbled upon the ad for hiring other creatives last June from one of my most admired design idols, I took the risk. Never thought he'd picked me. I felt deeply honored.

I dropped everything I had started in Manila for 3 years with my career and then moved in Cebu.

No friends that I know.
No family to come home to.

I don't even know the language.

Back to square one. So far so good, I'm doing okay here away from the family and friends. Been living here almost three months now. It's a different kind of experience.

I am still thinking of updating or transfer to behance. haha But whatever will be, will be.

PS: For industrial and interior design students who'd like to apply an internship, you may inquire because we're now accepting applicants. :) Apparently the website is still under construction and my boss's company is undergoing to a revamping from the catalogue, website, cards and stuff like that. Apply at :)

Haha! :)
