“If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” – RuPaul
Most bloggers publish their New Year Goals and Plans within the first seven days of January. For a change, I am publishing mine on the last Monday of the month. Why? Because I want to! 😛
I don’t know what made me check the Facebook page of Velvet Channel last December, but I did. I scrolled down the page and saw a status message regarding a contest. All you have to do is answer this question: Which Velvet show do you love the most and why?
Last year, I was able to work on my third short film. It was something that I conceptualized after I finished editing my two previous films (Kuya Bunso and The 12th of June). I originally planned to make a five minute ‘infomercial’ that can raise awareness on HIV with no dialogues. I ended up playing with the main characters until it became a 17 minute screenplay.
The story of POSITIVE revolves around Celine Antonio, a young married promiscuous woman who is about to face the consequences of her infidelity. Is this based on a specific true story? Nope, but it is inspired from true events.
I used to collect stamps when i was younger. I was influenced by my dad. He taught me how to remove the stamps in envelopes without destroying them. It was the time wherein I had penpals (yes i had some when i was in elementary!). I also ended up collecting some of the envelopes from my mom’s letters that was sent by her former workmates who tried their luck in countries such as Canada, UAE, UK, Italy, United States among others.
Right now, people seldom send letters, greeting cards or postcards via mail. Why spend some money buying writing materials and stamp if you can communicate by text, chat and email anyway?
When I arrived here in England, I saw a tourist holding her postcard album. She was telling her friend that she managed to collect those postcards by swapping with other collectors from different parts of the world. That’s when I get the idea of starting my own postcard collection.
