Traslacion 2019

An editorial cartoon by NVTorrecampo which appeared in People’s Tonight on January 9, 2019.

Every January 9, the Traslación of the Black Nazarene (commemorating the “solemn transfer” of the image’s copy from San Nicolás de Tolentino in Intramuros to Quiapo) makes its way along the streets of Quiapo, with attendees reaching up to 12 million. — wikipedia

Paskong Pinoy Artwork

My daughter drew this huge drawing when she was in high school. It’s a typical house in the Philippines adorned with brightly colored lights and lantern for Christmas. The poster was displayed in her classroom.

This is N’s interpretation of a young caroler when she was in high school. Christmas caroling is part of the Philippine tradition in observing Christmas.

I think I’ve posted these pictures on this blog back in 2012.

College graduation gift

In three months’ time my daughter will be graduating from college and we are thankful that despite the financial difficulty we didn’t gave up in supporting her education. We thought of giving her a gift but she requested us to buy her ticket for a two-day conference scheduled next month. I think that is more practical than giving her cheap acoustic guitars at guitarcenter.com.

I have written about this list before but it can still provide some insights on what to give your picky college students. You can add to this list.

    • Camera – This is probably for those who like arts and taking pictures.
    • A good book – There are still a lot of people right now who cannot put down a good book. A college student who is supposedly more serious will appreciate this.
    • USB flash drives in different designs – There are some people who just cannot resist the unique designs of the USB.
    • Accessories for Gadgets – College students are usually busy and would like to keep their gadgets protected with the right accessories.
    • Journal – A lot of people would not admit it but they still write their thoughts on paper.
    • usb piano keyboard – This is perfect for those who love music and music gadgets.

These things will surely be appreciated.
