Fresh Look and Some Nostalgia to Taste

new look

AS a personal rule and respect to good writing, I don’t like starting my sentences, especially my posts or articles with “I”, nor do I use all caps in stating something in intense emotion, nor do I use exclamation marks more than one because one is enough, two is too much, three is highschool-ish, but all I ever wanted to say in my first sentence is I LOVE MY NEW BLOG THEME!!!

Like what friend Jay said, it’s more Web 2.0 looking maybe because of the sliding panels and neatness. Fantastic, I say, when I first saw it after waiting for three days of the major appearance renovation.

There couldn’t be a more personal theme than this because the drawings look like my sketches and doodles.

friendster to multiply to facebook (I is dizzy)

Browsing the pages and categories, I found out a new button in the WordPress dashboard, the “Add feature photo,” that is, I need to choose the photo thumbnail that will go with the featured article on the homepage and in the Travel Gallery page, else I get a black square. This gives me quite a work to do because I have to go over a hundred photos in the archives. But since I don’t have all the time in the world to scan them all, I uploaded some pix.

In search of photos that fit, I visited my Multiply account which, to my surprise, is still there. Oh wait, it was Friendster that re-launched lately (and I never bothered to collect the pictures stored there because I feel they belong to a different person of a different time). Looking at my Multiply photos, I sure had gawdy photos I wouldn’t ever post in today’s hottest social network. Google +? Uh, not yet. Let’s give it some time and everyone’s migrating again, transferring photos, re-creating the Self.

a self retrieved and a self to become

There’s one lovely Me photo I retrieved, though. It’s inevitable that in having a new blog look, I revisit some things of the past.

This one was taken in Mt Tapyas when friends and I stayed in Coron, Palawan for two long weeks (the happiest days of our lives, yes) to do something with a lifetime effect: facilitate a youth program that will empower them, while touring every corner of Coron, with the locals themselves.

Just a few years ago, I was doing community work in remote areas of the Philippines. Forward to today, I’m here in Singapore, exploring streets and strange places. (Yesterday was Sentosa day with my 2-year old nephew, but that’s another post).

It will take long for me to change the appearance of this blog, but soon, I might just wander off again to something new in this short life.
