The Blessing of Family and Pets

The Blessing of Family and Pets

Last Sunday, I met our fun loving new American bulldog Buddee. He was very charming. I heard from my brother that we just got him that morning. He was a very spirited dog, an overexcited little mutt.  As I walked him around the lawn, his hurried sniffing antics and careless running about hit me. Suddenly I was endeared to him.

(Sorry Ill have a proper picture next time. Guardian of the Bantilan estate, Buddee G. Bantilan. Continue reading

LCC ARFIEN at 50: The Golden Harvest of Art and Architecture

Bounded by the main plaza streets
Founded by a commune of sisters,
Born of the passion of artists
And armies of student bach’lors.

From the increase of culture
Knowledge, art and learning
The finest of Bacolod architecture,
Was born in humble beginnings

On the shoulder of Negrense pride
From the diligence of Bacoleno minds
Came the radiance of colorful light
that will forever alter the city’s plight. Continue reading

French Flag on Negros Occidental Capitol


Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & Dubai

As an educator in historical buildings, there are many things we don’t want to see in a very esteemed building like our Provincial Capitol, such as the New Year and Christmas message that covers the top windows of the building every holidays. There are more appropriate locations for that. Why not in the Park or between the trees? That wouldn’t hurt.

Side A and Real Life Foundation in “Para Kay Toto” Concert

Side A and Real Life Foundation in “Para Kay Toto” Concert

I was spending time with my friends yesterday and we were talking about the coming Side A Concert in Bacolod City. What dawned on me is that this is not going to be a regular concert. The performing band would not be earning anything from this, but instead, they will be creating a difference for 1000 young kids who are currently part of the foundations who will be the recipients of this concert.

A thousand? That’s a lot! For other people, it is just a number but the lives that would be changed would be significant. Consider this: that the kids that tug along when you pass the overpass would not have the oppurtunity to decide if they are neglected and make a choice to “pay back” to the world through crime, but that through education, they can learn that other people care.
