Out of the blue, I got an email inviting me to hang out at a studio that designs rings. I had no idea what kind of jewelry they did until I saw their blog, and instantly fell in love with their kick-ass custom-made rings!
Hot rods, tattoos, leather, and metal... check out the workshop of Dante Dizon and Noli Conrado of 13 Lucky Monkey! :)
Favorite toy as a child: bolex ni tatay (kaya may nasayang na mga roll ng film ni tay. Hehe. Sorry tay) [his tatay is artist/filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik]
Favorite toy now: Kalipay, yung anak ko :)
Turn-ons: watching people, lakad-ing, laro-ing
Turn-offs: greed, SM-ism... welcome to republic of SM!

What's the most important life lesson you've learned so far? If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry." - sabi ni lakay dalai lama, in other words float through life don't make your own problems
Most inspiring statement/moment (heard/said/read): Bathala na! Leave it to the jamming with the cosmos. Make defect into effect. Gisingin ang sariling dwende and you will be the best in whatever you do. - sabi ni lolo tatay Kidlat Tahimik
