Since today is Dr. Jose Rizal’s birthday…here is my submission for day 18, sorry I’ve not been able to post almost everyday.
I apologize for the lack of posts for the past few days, but I made up for it by making 3 wallpapers.
I really love that quote from the book “The Joy Luck Club”
“I looked in the mirror, I was strong. I was pure. I had genuine thoughts inside that no one could see, that no one could ever take away from me. I was like the wind. And then I draped the large embroidered red scarf over my face and covered these thoughts up. But underneath the scarf I still knew who I was. I made a promise to myself: I would always remember my parents’ wishes,
but I would never forget myself.”
Lindo Jong from The Joy Luck Club
Reading good quotes everyday is somehow making me a better person. It helps me think more positively about life. Why not do that too?
Download an app or go to a quotes website and just read some quotes you like. You never know, maybe it’ll make your day a little brighter. 🙂

The Joy Luck Club
Directed by: Wayne Wang
Produced by Ronald Bass, Amy Tan, Patrick Markey
based on the New York Times bestseller “The Joy Luck Club” by Amy Tan
Let me just say this is a film that is close to my heart, being Chinese and Filipino. The emotion and tension felt between the mothers and daughters in the film is as real as you can get if you look at most Chinese mother-daughter relationships.(pretty darn awkward indeed in my case)
I suggest if you haven’t read the book yet, to go out and read it, its whimsical and touching in a cultural way(specially if you know a bit of chinese). It is an excellent read.
I don’t usually paint, but when I do, somehow I improve a little bit more.
It took me a while to decide which colors would look best, I ended up using 2 bold and simple colors which me and my mom love so much.
GOLD + BLACK
this is also for her birthday. She doesn’t show much emotion but you can feel if she’s in a good mood. Chinese mothers are very VERY hard to please(and that is an understatement).

Day 14: Audrey Hepburn
this is for my Mom who had her birthday today.
Day 13: This is for my younger bro who is such a war freak. Sorry if the image offends you, but it’s his birthday so here’s what I made.
Directed by : Tate Taylor
From the book by Kathryn Stockett
Cast: Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer
This is one of those movies that really kicks the crap out of you and leaves you to cry like a little sissy baby. specially when you’ve had the privilege to be raised by a maid(or yaya in our country).
I had a very sad parting with the maid that raised me since I was a child so this film really made me tear up big time.
