Don't you just...

Friday, May 8, 2009

Don’t you just love Facebook? It’s like eavesdropping on other people’s private conversations.

Don’t you just hate Nanay Dionisia? She brandishes her diamond-studded Rolex, unmindful of the hungry, unemployed Filipinos watching her and her son’s every move.

Don’t you just love the feeling of fallen tree leaves crackling under your feet as you step on them? Without looking up, it reminds me that there are still some trees that remain standing.

Don’t you just find the politicians with their political ads on TV ludicrous? Made presentable by sheer humbug, they wrap themselves in a semblance of substance to hide the pure wind lurking underneath.

Don’t’ you just love Manila’s weather today? The sky is blue, and the rain is gone.

Don’t you just look forward to the weekend? After days of continuous toil, we all deserve a couple of days free of meetings, deadlines and ringing telephones.

Don’t you just love it when the paintings you have saved for are now hanging (sort of) on your wall? They give you a reason to smile whenever you look at them.

oh! you have new paintings. Are these in the Philippine setting?

I am also looking forward to rest during the weekends. :)

Angeli said...

yes they are, mordsith. yung una mga magsasaka na nagtatanim ng palay, yung pangalawa mga mangingisda, yung pangatlo mga kababaihan na nagtitinda ng nahuling isda. Pilipinong Pilipino, di ba? :)

Amelia said...

and just stared at them and brings back the memories how you were able to have it and hang on that wall ;)

also looking forward for the weekend...

Angeli said...

hahaha.. the problem, amelia, is that i wasn't able to hang them up. i tried the hooks with adhesive thing. bumagsak. i don't know how to use the drill and i don't want to ruin the walls so i just placed them on top of the dresser. :)

i have a diamond studded rolex - bought at at a tiangge st. francis. no one was impressed when i was flashing it at sm mega mall food court. :)

Kayni said...

who cares about rolex these days...lol. frugality is in =).

i love the paintings.

Angeli said...

hahaha.. frugality is in, indeed, kayni. a non-rolex watch tells the same time naman, di ba? :)

hey anonymous, stop wearing that watch. it's in bad taste. :)

who is nanay dionisia!?!? you should've shoved that cubic zirconia fake rolex up her .... lol!

unstranger said...

Paintings are wonderful. I presume it's a local artist? The frames could go though.

Angeli said...

natz, nanay dionisia is manny pacquaiao's mom. :)

unstranger, my sister doesn't like them frames, too.

unstranger said...

They're terrible. Your sister has a good eye for artistic balance!

Angeli said...

yup.. i am actually planning to have the frames changed.

unstranger said...

Just noticed the frame-less versions. They really are excellent paintings.

unstranger said...

p.s. Could you do three separate photographs of the paintings so I can get them printed off?
Also, do you know who the artist is?

Angeli said...

i'll take a photograph and send them to you. the artist is Buan from Cebu, Philippines.
