Dapit-hapon


Si Lola
 Sa edad na nobenta'y syete, ay tila kamangha-mangha
 Sa hagdan ng lumang tahanan, kaya pa niyang mag-akyat-baba
 Kaya pa niyang humawak ng sariling kutsara
 At kumain ng nakasanayang adobo at tinola

Si Lola
 Sa maghapon ay wala nang gawa
 kundi matulog, kumain at pagmasdan ang bintana
 Sa darating na dapit-hapon ay magsisindi ng kandila
 sa harap ng altar ay luluhod at mag-aantanda

Si Lola
 Nabuhay upang ang mga anak ay punuin ng pag-aaruga
 Ngayon ay wala lahat, matagumpay na't mga dalubhasa
 Binhi ng pagmamahal at kasipagan sa kanila'y ipinunla
 Siyang tanging yaman na maipagmamalaki sa madla

Painting on Flower Clay Pots


A few months back, we went to a resort at Laiya, Batangas, where we had our wedding to celebrate our one year anniversary. On our way home, we passed by some stalls selling clay pots. Varied sizes from an inch tall up to four feet. I'm a bit excited on what I could possibly do with it so I bought the smallest size. The cutest size where you can place small cactus or fortune bamboo plants.

At home, I first cleaned my mini pots. It's important to have a clean painting surface so you have to remove dirt, sands or any other elements. I used sponge and scraper to do the trick.
