    gosh, miss portia.. read this:http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/egyptarchaeologyculture..

    says that the pharaohs’ tomb could disappear.

    well, i know that this is not new.. but wala lang.. i just feel so much for them.. just like the parthenon.. we will lose it without even fully understanding their culture.. and besides you said it yourself and we all know that it’s gonna be hard to replace it or make a new one.. and it has its own significance.. i hope our technology can save these precious. i hope we can find ways to save it..

    @ecai i read it. i am sure there is a technology out there that can prevent that. but. i think what they need to do is limit the exposure. i remember this chinese painting, “6 persimons-, to preserve it, it is only taken out once every ten years for public viewing. it is a very simple painting, monochromatic. it is just that it refrlects the absolute description of chinese asthetics. so there is a way, always a way.

    @mina yun nga eh, i need a line. the problem is my lifestyle. masyadong mobile. i keep on moving from place to place… and that really isnt good if youhave a line. some places are not good for some lines… hay i wonder… when my feet are firmly on the ground perhaps i’ll then get a line. till then–suffer!

    @pauline ngayon lang ako nag-online ulet. how was the exams? sana okay ang nangyari seo… 🙂

    @jean camille i’m glad nadalian ka. 1 section palang na-check ko. and it appears may bumaagsak parin. well, problema na ng tamad yun, coz i think the exam was really easy…

    hope to hear from most of you soon! 🙂

Love talking about modern art. We started with theoretical essays, now we're discussing the -isms. The story of art that eventually lead to The Fountain is very interesting--world wars, development of capitalism, institutionalization, and rise of market industry. This class takes me on a journey, from the classroom to New York and Paris. I still remember seeing these works in the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay and Pomidou. Building the student's canonical knowledge of art, at the same time teaching them to challenge the canon and canon-building, is difficult. I don't know if I will ever strike the right balance. Rewards of being in the teaching profession despite of all the challenges it presents. #art #artstud #modernart Let me lead the story with baby and I are just fine. But it didn't feel like it when I felt sharp pains at 2 am today. I woke my doctor and #gamerchef up, to ask and decide if we should go to the ER. Then the pain started subsiding. Doctor said I can just have a regular check-up later, as I was scheduled to have a check-up in a few days anyway. But if the pain returns, I should call. Everything was ok, except I felt exhausted. My weight and blood pressure are fine. Doctor listened to baby's heartbeat and it is strong. Apparently, baby is horizontal right now and probably jammed her feet on my rib cage, thus the sharp pains. As I am small and baby is getting bigger and stronger, kicks and movements are bound to cause me pain, lots of it. As long as the pain subsides, it is fine. One of those false alarms that rather scared me. To cap things off, we shopped for some necessities, saw some friends, and had a nice dinner. The coming weeks are gonna be challenging. Rest is essential. #babynarratives Sleepy baby girl keeping me company this Sunday afternoon. Been feeling exhausted the entire day, I think she shares the sentiment. Cute baby Bunny really loves the comforter. #bunny #toypoodle #dogsofinstagram Baby shower and house warming. We missed you Raquel! Next time just bring Alex. Catching up over pizza, donuts, and our first tikoy gift. Lol. Can't believe we've been friends for about two decades! Part 2 should definitely happen. #shower If there was any doubt to a new phase in our lives, there isn't anymore. We received brown tikoy for Lunar New Year. Lol. Singing 'we are family'.... #cny #newyear #2018 #gamerchef One of the awesome things we bought in Myanmar. Love it. Hope we can find this here also. #lentils #travel #myanmar
