Perfect Combination

Blue and yellow is a perfect combination. I'm glad they go together :-). The yellow one looks like the yellow taxi at Mactan International Airport.

Roy's Birthday Celebration

A Saturday treat by my former student in fourth year high school Roy (in yellow) who once became my colleague. He celebrated her birthday at Park Place Resort on Saturday, August 21, 2010. Actually, his birthday was on the 17th but celebrated on the 21st since it's Saturday and everyone is free from work.


A year ago, I bought a domain from GoDaddy.com with domain name austerebelle.com. I thought it was easy as what I expect but I was wrong. :-( So I just leave it behind with my few $ lost. I'm not familiar about hosting yet and other things needed for my site. Now, I wish to continue using it but I don't know how, when and where to start. I need help.
Found something useful from ehow. http://www.ehow.com/how_5080300_set-up-godaddy-domain-blogger.html . It's all about setting up goDaddy domain with blogger.

Drafting and Technology

The love to draw occurs when I was in early years of school. Then, developed when I was in high school where Trade Drawing subject was offered. After high school I took Architectural Drafting and get a bachelor's diploma after four years. My first on-the-job-training was on summer 1998 at RS and Sons Shipbuilders. Another venue for my OJT was on the first semester of school year 1998-1999 at Cebu 3rd Engineering Department and at TEC, Industries (furniture exporter) on the second semester. The experiences I have with them was short yet unforgettable. I learned a lot of things on those days but not with CAD.

CAD was introduced during college days but that was not widely used at that time in our school. I can still remember the first AutoCAD application we were able to use, it was AutoCAD version 1998. We only have one computer unit in our laboratory at that time. So, only one student can use it in a day. Our professor arranged it like alphabetical order so that he can easily monitor and make sure that everyone can experience computer drafting.

In the school year 2001-2009, I've been teaching drafting but the manual one. Well, I have mentioned about CAD to my students but they were not able to experience using it. It's not because, we do not have the computer nor the program but because it is integrated in their computer subject.

Recently, I am enrolling a master's degree major in Architectural Drafting. It doesn't matter if I am teaching Filipino subject when I first enrolled. That was last year. By hook or by crook I will finish the course whatever subject will be given to me. :-) This year, my subject load is Information and Communication Technology or ICT in first year and third year high school. Uhm, well, I love it! And I am actually very happy about it. But I still dream that someday I will be able to teach drafting so I can exercise and share my knowledge in AutoCAD before it gets obsolete.

Sky Photos

A school inside a forest. I went ahead of them, lol. I need to go down earlier because I still have to travel and need to catch-up the bus at 4:20 PM or else I will be able to go home at 5. It's already late. Students live just nearby anyway.

While waiting for the bus, I spotted the sky at the adjacent lot. It is the elementary school under this beautiful sky.

Massage Sofa?

"The world's first little massage sofa." I was struck by this phrase printed on this unique vehicle. I actually have seen this picture at my sister's colleague at Singapore. Just edited it a little.

It made me a little bit curious so I tried to search it in google and youtube and I have seen a video of the model of this uSoffaPetit named Lin Chi Ling. The short video above shows how it works.

ICT T-shirt Design

Trying to make a simple design for my ICT students at DASNHS. I'm not sure if this will look good in the actual print. I made this design at spreadshirt. We can costumize our design in this site as much as we want. They have the design and text suggestions too. These help us make it faster in making an output.

Well, this is just a trial design. I am still thinking of another simple and affordable. And I will add it here.

Looking at the Sky on Friday

Looking at the sky outside Gaisano Grand Mall here in our City.

Looking at the adjacent lot of the Mall making the sky as the main subject of the photo. :-)

The exit area of the Mall.
Looking at the sunset.

Sometimes we just need to look up and see the beauty above. I'm not sure if my photos look beautiful in you eyes. Hehehe But you can see more beautiful sky photos here

Anapora at Katapora

Been wandering around sites google have given when I searched for the meaning and example of anapora and katapora. Both are derived from English words anaphora and cataphora. These are called reference or pagpapatungkol.

Here are some examples taken from pinoyhenyo:

Pumasok ang kanyang guro. Siya ay nagsalita nang ganito.

Anapora - panghalip na ginagamit sa hulihan bilang pananda sa pinalitang pangngalan sa unahan.
Katapora - panghalip na ginagamit sa unahan bilang pananda sa pinalitang pangngalan sa hulihan.

I've been searching for this because this will be the topic that I am going to have with my second year students tomorrow. Teaching Filipino isn't that easy. There are a lot of unfamiliar words that's quite difficult to understand than English. I just need to do my best and use all resources available because our school head trusted me that I can manage handling the subject. Well, I only have one Filipino subject. The rest are ICT (Information and Communication Technology), two sessions in first year and one in third year. I love teaching computer because it's fun and easy.
