Kapritso ni Furitsu

Presenting my new Bamboo Graphics Tablet by WACOM.

As i said on my last post that i was addicted to Photoshop recently that made me decide to buy this sleek and minimalistic piece of black pastic and a pen with no ink (!) to help me with my future Photoshop projects. Since i had a hard time using the mouse, this tablet helps a lot especially in putting even effects on the work with efficiency.

Actually this is the cheapest of the Bamboo Series (around 8,980 yen) i found in the Electronics Shop and it actually just serves right the functions i needed.

Up to this moment, i am still in the stage of exploring on what other things i can do with this tablet since the manual included in the packaging is all in Japanese so i think its up to me to discover for my self.

I know this is just one of my "kapritso" but it really gives me happiness to get what i want even if its just a whim. Its one of the things i don't like with myself, that i really have to get what i want. But sometimes it do me good since i really work hard in order to get it but sometimes i sacrificed some important things just to get what i want and that is the part i am down with.

But anyway, lets just hope and pray that i will find this hobby a productive one and will be transformed into money! hehehe! lets just keep our fingers crossed.

Lately, i had been hooked with Photoshop tutorials on YouTube that i spent until midnight everyday learning some basic techniques.

and i guess it paid off since i was able to learn techniques such as putting an Acryllic/Oil Painting Effect to some of my favorite shots of the kids of KCIC.

My Super Woman

hi there! whew! its been a loooong time since i made my last post. you might be wondering why it took me almost a month to make another post.

as always, (gasgas na alibi) been very busy with work. hehehe!seriously, i was preoccupied with lots of things lately that keeps me from clicking my blog site and update my posts.

one is my upcoming business venture in the Philippines (and i pray it would be a success or
else i will end up planting kamote when i go home! hehehehe!) that kept me always on chatrooom with my wife talking and planning for the preparations since she will be single handedly doing all the things from looking for the space to rent, contacting the persons needed to do the paintings, electrical wirings, carpentry, canvassing for materials, acquiring business permit, etc.etc.

these are just extra loads to her already loaded schedule of monday- friday work atthe bank, being the both father and mother to our four-year old son, and keeping her garden watered and always in bloom everyday!

whew! thinking about these loads, i dont think i can even handle it all by myself! but my wife really keeps me amazed on how she fits these on her schedule and be able to accomplish all on time.

she's my Superwoman!
