The fruit of the womb is a reward
Like arrows in the hands of a Warrior
are children born in the prime of one’s youth…”

My dad is a seasoned warrior
He handles skillf ’lly the bow & spear
My mom is a royal mentor
Who handles me with loving care. Continue reading

Review of Musika sa Museum Cafe

Review of Musika sa Museum Cafe – Sept.22 6pm

My first experience with the violin is with my maternal Grandfather, Portraitist and Painter, Timoteo Guintos (my poem about him here) who I’ve heard playing when I was just 4 years old. I also get a good pelting when I made my brother cry. Nevertheless, I understood the moody disposition of my grandfather and his quiet disposition. This made a great impression on me as a growing artist and I sought to look the for “family treasure” years later, – the violin.

Time Flies and Years Passed

Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & Dubai

Oh, How Time Flies

Oh, How time would fly,
When we were young
We would laugh and cry
And have some fun

But I saw you
Saw you grow,
And be the lady,
That I barely know.

Oh, How time flies and Years would pass!
