Substitute artist

My daughter was really busy with her studies that I volunteered to do a couple of editorial cartoons for her. These cartoons appeared in People’s Tonight last week. Pardon the quality of drawings as I am not the expert when it comes to drawing, my daughter is. :)


The first one was the image of Retired Major Jovito Palparan Jr. who was arrested last week for the kidnapping and serious detention of two UP students in 2006.

The second image showed the “pact” between Christians and Muslims under the Bangsamoro Law which has yet to reach its final approval.

I enjoyed being an “artist” for a day or two. Not really keen on pursuing this new-found career though haha.

Family Emergency Preparedness Food Checklist

Have you had this panic attack every time you read or heard about the earthquake which experts said could strike and isolate Metro Manila? I do. While the family discussed about this in passing, we don’t have a solid plan yet on what to prepare or do when earthquake happens. I told the kids that wherever they may be when earthquake hits the area they should try not to panic and protect themselves (and please try to reach home safe).

Department of Health Photo: There is a high risk of malnutrition during emergencies like typhoons. What should be in your emergency food stock list to prevent this from happening to you and your family? (Please click on image to enlarge.)

Useful information about emergency preparedness suggests that a family secure a food checklist. The 72-hour emergency kit includes non-perishable goods, medicine, among others, but the food checklist includes a variety of non-perishable and nutritious goods enough to sustain a family for a few days.

Please check on the picture above to find out the necessary goods to stock at home in preparation for emergency situation.
