Walking the bike home

I walked my bike the last 5 kilometers to my apartment because of a flat tire. Took me around 1 1/2 hours. No worries. Took my sweet time. I still had a smile on my face. My music player kept me company.

A concert at the park...

Just arrived home from Rizal Park Open Air Auditorium where my band BARABBAS performed live on a lovely Saturday late afternoon!

The park brought back memories. My alma mater is just a few blocks away (Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila) and I used to walk through this park all the time.

I took a lot more photos and videos and I hope to stitch together a new video soon.

Thanks to my brother Nal vivo Jr. from HATEURE and THE INSEKTLIFE CYCLE  for these photos!

The shit has hit the fan

So, I just did something today where I figuratively jumped off a cliff.
As I plunge head first onto the rocky depths below, there is literally no turning back this time.

For better or worse, I made a decision.

This is going to be a painful descent, and as I reach rock bottom, I either get back up and rock n roll, or just lie there dead.

Let's fucking do this.

Holy shit.

A Pic A Day VII...

i suppose...

for you to go where your heart truly desires...

you have to take a leap of faith,

scrape your knees,

endure the pain.

find the courage to

face the fear of uncertainty.

your heart knows where to go.

take the rest of you with it.

These sandals were made for pedaling...

I just realized that I have been using these Merrell sandals since 2013.

It's unusual since my feet have a penchant for destroying footwear in a short span of time.

I'm impressed.

My Dog, Boss...

His name is Boss, and he's
an American Bulldog.

Here he is at my balcony
barking at something that
caught his attention.

He's big enough now to make it
very difficult for me to carry him.

He is my ever loyal monster companion.

He never fails to greet me
with an enthusiastic
wagging of his tail.

Amazing creature.
Boss when he was younger.
Cute and cuddly.

A Pic A Day VI...

Dinner at some eatery before going home.
the hustle & bustle of marikina...

enjoying the view,

an ocean of people on their way home,

a hearty meal, a dependable bicycle, a full stomach.

today was a good day.

A Pic A Day V...

Intramuros Walls, Manila

i detest this crumbling, corrupt cesspool of a city

            there is nothing here that inspires me

except for a few nooks and crannies here & there,

the buildings and structures of the past,

the cobblestone streets,

   the old glory of manila.
