Yup, it’s been a month already and yet I wasn’t able to post them. Yes, hiatus brought by various activities and my day[night] job. Anyway, this happened a week after my 23rd Hurrah. My pals didn’t failed me on this one, we spent the whole evening laughing and fighting the drowsy feel of the good chilled vodka.
My mom cooked everything I requested, from the main course up to our pulutan. She’s the best. And Dad, who came back after almost 2 weeks of being confined somewhere in Batangas and underwent in a gal-bladder operation, brought me a cake. He still treats me like a kid and I treasure it.
Well,kahit di kumpleto ang aking high school barkada, okay lang dahil nagenjoy naman kami. look at the photos below, hanggang tenga ang ngiti ko. [napansin ko lang nung ineedit ko na ang mga pics…masasabi ko na masayang masaya ako that night.]
after stuffing our gout with a sumptuous dinner, we ended up having a round up in my blue walled room. As usual, kelangan ng movie to make it more interesting. good thing I was able to download some horror flicks before the occasion. We watched “Cinco”, we can’t scream [or laugh hard on the almost crappy CGIs] because everyone is sleeping and my younger brother’s room is only one “wall” apart.
After Cinco, I played “the Orphan” pero dahil pagod sa trabaho, ayun nakatulog ako sa first 10 minutes ng movie. pagkagising ko ay nagfafacebook nalang sila sa PC ko. hope they didn’t visited my bookmarked sites. 😀
pero bago ako nablack-out, a friend called us. I was surprised and thankful with that nice gesture. Noemi, whose living 2 blocks away, can’t go because she have a shift. She’s a nurse working for a medical insurance company, the same company who answers my medical bills. Everyone had a turn to talk to her over the phone. I felt like a celebrity becasue of that phone patch :D. Umasa tuloy ako na makarining ng “roll VTR” sabay play ng mga greetings 😀
After 2 bottles of strawberry vodka, everyone begins to have an involuntary and unwanted shut-eye. but we have this deal na we will draw some doodle sa mga taong matutulog. I have this drawer full of pentel pens [not sharpies okay?] Alfie and Galaxy initiated the havoc. but we ended doodling each other’s skin kahit na gising na gising kami. It’s a tradition Alfie started 2 years ago. He even got this video where he and I drew some doodles to some drunk comrades and even have an introduction, naming it “Art Attack” ; kung saan nang-aatack ang art. dati masakit pa dahil ballpen at signpen pa gamit namin, good thing we have a lot of pentel pens that day 😀
but it seems doodling each other wont stop us having a shut eye. we ended up snoring for almost 3-5 hours. [but i think It was only me and ero who are snoring..anyway..] mom prepared us a sumptuous breakfast as a jumpstart.
after breakfast, it’s time to clean up. I must say, its so hard to erase those tattoos I got from the doodlers [alfie and galaxy]. Lord had to help me erase the pseudo-batman tats in my back. Also I got some present from my pals; another collectible bracelet from Angy, USB from Lord, a hug from Dory [cheesy] and a pad with some written wishes from the rest of the gang. thanks guys 😀
so after prepping up, its time to send everyone home, but as usual, di mawawala ang mga kodakan moments. I made a SILVER LUNA placard using a left over styro while everyone is snoring. It is so cute and handy for a camwhoring activity hehe.
So thanks again guys, you lessen the pain of getting older. hehe. I still feel like a kid by just having you guys around, so kailan ba ang next stop? Dory’s birthday? must file a leave as early as now 😀
So that’s for now guys.
So Till Then and Godbless 😀
March last year, me and some from the Silver Luna Gang agreed to do a business out of my hobby. A little home based studio for Audio Video Presentations, catered for birthday, weddings, seminars, other events and as giveaways. We named our “company” as “ARTEBIDA”. Audio Video Presentation projects came in and made me busy for a while which is good for business. The Tarp we posted on our gate is our only advertisement, it is also reminds our strong friendship every time we look at it.
But I can’t stop myself to use the first name of the Studio which is AMHERST UREIQN STUDIOS. I don’t know, I think I’m still attached to it. Amherst Ureiqn studios reminds me of college and it is so hard to let go. Projects overflowed my calendar till now. I managed how to balance work, my health ,stake outs with the barkada and my bankable hobby with is Video Editing. I do Video post productions for various schools and universities now. Every client came in is another addition to my Demo Reel and Portfolio, but still I use my hobby to help some friends , did some AVPs for free, still I enjoyed watching the end product, making it one of my favorite, “PUSH” for FCPC is one of them. The flash animation I made about abortion, scored by an a capella / choir version of Matchbox 20’s “PUSH” made it unforgettable and until now, I look forward to do something like that.
This hobby gave me opportunities to meet various people, to gain more techniques in production and made me land a job as a high school teacher for a special project and sometimes give talk to various colleges.
Almost a year passed, many happened that changed me also the state of my studio. I also realized what is the use of a tarp that don’t bear the name of the studio that I’m currently using, plus, I lost my phone twice, so contacts embedded on that ad is not useful anymore. So I decided to change it for the better. With the permission from my friends, I decided to take the old tarp down and produce a new one. Promoting the studio I had in my dreams. A studio named AMHERST UREIQN STUDIOS. minimally inspired , I designed a simple tarp, my logo against white backdrop, services rendered and contacts on the right. It is nice to be proud showing everybody the name of the studio I made couple of years ago.
Now I would like to take the opportunity to thank my family, friends, clients and students I had before. You made my hobby productive; it made me more passionate about it. Thanks for new projects that challenged my creative juices these past few years. Thanks. The studio I named out of my codename last 2007 became a striving underground business.
Thanks to my friends at SYNCOMASS for allowing me to edit those AVP, flash animations and sorts, it served as my training ground. My clients from First City Providential College,studes and friends from College of Languages and Linguistics, College of Communication, Advertising and Open U of Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Far Eastern University, Our Lady of Fatima University Lagro, TIP Cubao, Gregorbelle Preschool, ePLDT Ventus, Creative Vision photography, Ronnie Colors, Montana Luz catering, Philippine Information Agency, My co editors, my friends specialized in different editing software, various Medi speciliast I met and became one of my friends, my studes at PWU and IHMU, to the Silver Luna Gang, to my family, and the God above. Thanks.
Check out my portfolio site where I posted some of my works, from graphic design, video editing up to AVPs and 2D animation: WWW.UREIQN.MULTIPLY.COM
[my first ever demo reel made last 2008, If ever got a chance , or time on that matter, I’ll do another demo reel..hmmm…]
Well, Happy 3rd Anniversary , AMHERST UREIQN STUDIOS : eyecandies since 2007
I almost gave photography [mobile photography to be exact] last year, when some culprits stole away my equipments. [those bastards–anyway, enough with the cursing]
Honestly speaking I am not a professional photographer, i was once satisfied with point and shoot cams, not having any concerns with ISOs, modes, focus, exposures, and any photography jargons available in human subconscious. Unconsciously, It just came to me to put an angle and proper framing on every photos i take. thus that’s the start I owned photography as one of my mediums.
So what about Blurred realms Project? well, I was once tempted with this interesting project, One photo a day, for the whole year, however, by some obvious reasons, i can’t keep a promise to shoot some image everyday. i can’t bring my cam everyday because I might lost it again along the process. Then Blurred realms project came to me. it is a collection of some random pics, from snapshots, stolen shots up to beautifully planned snipets of life, with some quotes in it. it’s like making your own postcard. On this case you don’t need to be a professional photographer, all you need is your own appreciation to your own art. It doesn’t matter if its crappy or beautiful;, as long you own the medium, it will give you some rewards in the future 😀
Anyway, I spent my Christmas vacation on some undone projects, from commisioned graphic lay-outs up to audio-video presentations. then along the busy editing and hulabahoos , I just thought that Its almost a year since i created the last set of Blurred Realms Project. Why not start another set for 2010. so I scanned all my back-up DVD photos and grabbed some interesting pics, the theme? Snipets of life, a collection of ordinary photos that captures different moments of the subjects lives. all of them we’re took unplanned. meaning, subjects had no time to strike a pose, wear make up or shift their facial expressions, I just called thier attention and click my camera, just like a paparrazi.
Anyway enjoy some of the photos from the third set of Blurred Realms Project
so there you go, why don’t you give it a try. Scan your files now and let your instinct select those pics, if needed, splash art or adjust color by using photoshop or other imaging software. Self made postcards can be a nice gift in ordinary days you know 😀
for the whole third set of Blurred Realms Project, please give these links a click 😀
Well that’s for now…
So Till then and Godspeed 😀
it’s been a year since the last time we saw each other. Haist, even though I got a chance to catch up with some of them, it’ll be more likely to have all the SYNCOMASS peeps around, chatting, goofing , whatever.
So it is December already, any plans for us to push our annual reunion to it’s 2nd year before yuletide activities overload our calendars?
[SYNCOMASS in NO TIME 2008 reunion here —-> http://ureiqn.multiply.com/video/item/66%5D
Also I learned that one of my pals left the country without any formal goodbye. We didn’t even had a chance to wish him luck or bid goodbye. He just left us hanging. Anyway, the whole SILVER-LUNA Gang wishes Alfie to have the best for his career as a Seaman.
Bon Voyage Alfie. We’ll miss our weird mask rider black—–in white 😀

It’s Dory’s “Botday” when we decided to dare ourselves on this one thing. Nothing serious actually, all we have to do is to use one certain photo as our profile image on our facebook account[s].
We took several group pics during our trip slash celebration [do I need to spell out “slash?” heheh anyway], we do make attempts to produce good photos when we’re still roaming ’round the mall but we can’t. I thought the challenge won’t be possible until i got a chance to scan the photos from Galaxy’s cam. I found some pretty decent shots but there is one that caught my short attention span. A group shot at Alfie’s House [the offcial Silver-Luna Tambayan]
Fortunately, my so called creative juices let me do some simple twitches and adjustments to make it more interesting. And here’s the end product 😀
Just like a mock DVD [or on the image size CD] cover , I imagined what if I put a title on it, just like a movie poster, complete with DVD official logo [sorry, BluRay discs never works for me, hehehe]. thus I ended up BEP’s recent album title The E.N.D. Energy never Dies…
I sent a group text to all Silver Luna peepz that were present in that certain image, I told them to check my post and start to use that as thier FB profile pic. after several minutes, Alfie replied “wow, ayos ah, sige sige, pero pede palitan? ang panget eh jejeje.”. It didn’t broke my heart, actually it’s a sign that he likes it…hahaha LOLz, just working on my reversed phsycology. hahaha LOLz. 😀
