A different feeling

It always delights me each time I receive a fan art. People taking their precious time just to draw my character. And one particular person who had created so many fan art uses a pen name Originalnameless. His real name is Joy Paz A. Gatdula. He currently holds the record of the most Kalayaan fan art, around 9 drawing in all (including the villains). It's been quite a while since we have exchange messages. But many months ago, we occasionally trade messages quite often. And each messages he sends me , there is always a message of respects towards me. An honor that most of the time that I feel that I do not deserve.    

I have not met him in person before, and I'm afraid that I will not have that chance. Because I am very sad to say that he just passed away earlier this month due to a heart attack. I had confirmed it from the post of Gian Carlo in DeviantArt. 

To be honest, I was a little ashamed of my self not seeing it sooner that he was the one that the comics group Hollow Point was saying that just passed away earlier this month. 

It is a little bit different feeling for me being sad for a death of someone that I never met in person before. I guess this is what Ferdinand Blumentritt felt like when he received the news that Jose Rizal died.  

It is such a shame for an early age of only 32 he is already gone. There are so much potential on him. I really regret not meeting him in person. This kind of things makes me thank our creator more each day for the life that he gave me. For a person that will be 39 years old this October, it makes me think how lucky I am for I am still here.

The following artwork are the fan art that he send me. Goodbye my friend and thank you very much for these wonderful art that you gave me.

Philippine government please watch this video

If a single person could get a P10 Billion through NGO from the government. I am very much confident that the Philippines could create something similar to this so that the yearly flooding could be stop once and for all. Mahal ang pag papagawa nito pero mas importante ang mga buhay ng tao kaysa pera.

Floods again

(Image taken from Yahoo News Philippines Aug.19,2013) 

Exactly last year, I posted THIS ENTRY about the sewer system. And one year later here we are again. Floods in Metro Manila, in the provinces and almost every where in the Philippines. And this will continue again and again and again. Year after year after year if our government will do any thing about it.

Sana naman ay i-abolish na lang ang Pork Barrel at gamitin na lang ang pera sa pag papagawa ng mga malalaking sewer system hindi lang sa Metro Manila, kundi sa buong Pilipinas. Sa ngayon kasi ay existing na mga estero, ang average diameter ay 3 feet lang, puno pa ito ng BASURA. Kaya hindi naka pagtataka na mag baha ang mga kalsada natin.

A better way

Dapat panoorin ng MMDA ito. They should start thinking outside the box. As EARLY as 1860's in London, they have already solved their problems in traffic.

I'm not Mighty

One of my habit is to Google my name. And in many occasions that I find my name popping up in some forums, message board and blog site. But most of the thing that had catch my attention is people address me as 'Sir', 'Master' and others (believe it or not) 'Mighty Sir Gio Paredes'. Although I am very much flattered that people would address me with such a high regards, I still think that I do not deserve such a praise. Aside from publishing my own comics, I'm just a normal person like you. Even my friend Randy Valiente does not wanted to be called 'Master'. Dahil sabi nya 'Kung may Master ay mayroong Slave.".  Tama nga naman. So I really would appreciate it if people would just call me plain 'Gio'. At isa pa... pag Gio lang tawag nyo sa akin, feeling ko ay bata pa ako at hindi tumatanda. :-)
