upon passing the Architecture Board Exams

“Behold, children are a gift from the Lord
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


Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & Dubai

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.

The Museum Cafe was filled by art patrons and music lovers from all over Bacolod, including a good representation of Chinese and Indian visitors. Continue reading

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!

One Tree Hill S6E22: Our Life in Movies

I spent some time watching the rest of the One Tree Hill Season 6 that I’ve missed. And being the only one awake at midnight with a romantic light on and full of emotions and life, I a pressed to write.

These series makes me come alive. Coming home from my evening run in the Bacolod Government Center, I was still empty. I really appreciate how the writer mixed the loss, rejection, fun and connection that their life comes to. Memories from high school and my friends just come to mind.

In this episode (Sesson 6 Episode 22), I think the writer explores the value of relationships. He contrasts the differences between a run-away parent to a parent who sticks around but Continue reading

1. When we disobey God, He may be thinking, “Hey, the man is leaving my Protection but if I force him back, he might not want to go home, yet, so I will let him.”
