#ArtFairPH2017

Another year of art, wine and life. A dump of my favorite picks.

Productivity Check

I tried to art my way through studying the back and lower extremities. I got the art part down; the anatomy, not so much. More notes! Earlier this month, I blogged about my feels over the intersection of Anatomy and Art. This is just more of the same. With more ink. When we get to internal organs next…

Anatomy and Art

All the same. Then: Figure Drawing (2012) Now: Clinical Anatomy (2016)

ASMPH MD/MBA: 3 Modules In

Finding the time to write is difficult when life itself outpaces the speed of my thoughts. But this last week’s dermatology submodule gave us all in YL5 some much needed respite, so I think I can try my hands at updating this blog. Also, we’ll be properly dissecting our cadavers tomorrow, and that means I’ll…

Ballet: The Great Classics 2016 by PBT

LET NO ONE TELL YOU THAT BALLET IS BORING. I almost cried, I kept sitting in awe, I learned to believe in love again. Philippine Ballet Theatre’s The Great Classics was a good show and a fun time! As always, we can’t take photos or recordings while the show was ongoing. Showing in Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo,…

ASMPH MD/MBA: Transsum

The long journey’s at its formal start — five years of MD/MBA (what’s that? why is it relevant?), a couple of years residency, and a million or two moments of crying. I’m so excited. I’m also afraid I’ll forget things (half of my college experience now seems like a haze in my memory), so here’s a…

Comic: Lucifer (2000)

I have a problem with pride, and the asociality that comes with it. I can only bear few people, and they all must be as…

quotes for the day(s)

I’ve been collecting so many words lately. My lettering and calligraphy can’t quite keep up. But even without asking, I just want to point out that this: and remember: anything divided by their equal will always become one. al v esben was made by a news anchor writing under a pseudonym. Here comes (some of)…

ArtFairPH 2016 (a photodump)

I went to the ArtFairPH last February to satisfy my ravenous appetite for art, good company and pretentious wine. I went first on a Friday night with C (and there’s a long story there involving traffic, impulsive life decisions, a potted plant, and a job interview), then on Saturday afternoon with my sis. I will say that…
