Blog of the week: Kathang Makata
Monday, February 27, 2012 | 0 comments
     Nakakita, at nakabasa ka na ba ng blog na ang laman ay mga kwento, at talatang Tagalog? Uso pa nga ba ang pambansang wika nating mga Pilipino, o naluma na ng panahon at ng Ingles na lenggwahe? 



     Nakarating ka na ba sa blog ni kathangmakata? Na-engganyo ka na ba sa kanyang mga naisulat? Kilala mo na ba siya? Gusto mo ba siyang makilala pa?




Sino ang nag-impluwensya sayo'ng magsulat?
Isang kaibigan ko sa simbahan. Pinilit niya kasi akong mag blog--sa multiply pa to noon.
Kailan ka nagsimulang magsulat ng malilikhang kwento, atbp?
Siguro nung 2nd year sa college. May "creative writing" kasi akong klase 'nun, pero noon pa talaga mahilig na ako sa mga pagsusulat ng essays, yun nga lang kasi noon tuwing may essay portion lang sa exams.
Ano ang nagtulak sayong magblog, at ipamahagi ang iyong mga gawa?

Kahihiyan, minsan kasi may panahon talagang may kung anong ideya na lang na papasok sa isip ko tapos hindi ko mapipigilan bumulong at makipag diskusyon sa sarili ko kaya mas minabuting kong isulat na lang at ilagay sa tumblr. Para kahit papaano hindi ko lang sinasarili yung mga naiisip ko.(?)
     Nagsimula si Kathang Makata sa Tumblr noong 27 Pebrero 2011. Ibig sabihin, ngayon ang ika-isang taon ng kanyang blog! Para sa kaka-isang taon pa lamang na blog, malayo-layo na rin ang narating ng kanyang mga naisulat. At hindi nakakapagtaka ang mga nakukuha niyang "likes" at "reblogs" sa Tumblr.

Bakit Tagalog ang ginagamit mong lenggwahe sa pagsusulat?

Noon naman kasi wikang Ingles ang gamit ko, pero di nagtagal ginamit ko yung Tagalog kasi mas napansin ko na mas naisusulat/nailalabas/naipapakita ko yung mga nararamdaman ko kapag ito ang ginagamit ko.
Sa tingin mo, ikaw na lang ba ang nagsusulat ng mga malilikhaing gawa gamit ang pambansang wika?
Hindi. Marami pa din naman ang nagsusulat gamit ang sariling wika. May mga kilala at mga kaibigan akong ito din ang ginagamit, at hindi sila matatanda at uugod-ugod na, ang iba pa nga sa kanila ay mas bata pa sa'kin.
Ano kadalasan ang laman ng iyong blog, maliban sa kwento mo?
Mga essays(?), personal na opinyon sa mga bagay bagay, at minsan mga gawa-gawang tula. Kahit anong maisipan kong gawin at ilagay dun.

Bakit KathangMakata?

Kathang makata kasi... Noong "purongkalokohan" pa yung url na ginagamit ko may mga ilan-ilan na kaibigan at followers na nagsasabi na hindi daw bagay yung URL na gamit ko dahil hindi naman daw kalokohan ang laman ng blog ko, at na makata daw ako.
Katha (likhang) makata.
Base ba sa iyong sariling pinagdaanan ang iyong mga likha? Kung hindi, saan ka kumukuha ng inspirasyon para dito?
Yung iba base talaga sa mga karanasan ko, habang yung iba naman napupulot ko na lang sa tabi tabi--maririnig, makikita, mababasa.
     At kung akala niyo na walang nang ibang ginagawa si Kathang Makata maliban sa pagsusulat, nagkakamali kayo dun. Mahilig din siyang maglaro ng Tetris Battle, magbasa ng mga libro, mag-Facebook, sumayaw, at higit sa lahat, kumain. 

Sa tingin mo, ano ang iyong pinakamagandang naisulat?

Para sa akin, pantay pantay lang lahat ng naisulat ko. Lahat sila parang "okay" pa lang, kasi aminado naman din ako na may mas magaling pa sa akin at nagsisimula pa lang naman ako. 
Katulad ng mga kabataang lalaki ngayon, mahilig ka rin ba sa mga laro sa computer, tulad ng dota?
Oo, pero hindi gaanong madalas. Paminsan minsan lang kasi mas gusto ko manuod ng mga movies.
Sino ang paborito mong manunulat-- local at international?
Lokal/local, siguro si Lourd De Veyra pagdating dun sa mga blogs niya na nabasa ko. Nakakatawa kasi pero at the same time may sense din. [Sa] international, Si J.K. Rowling... Kasi masasabi ko na din sigurong inabangan ko talaga ang kabuuang kwento ng Harry Potter, at nakakamangha lang talaga yung panibagong mundong ginawa niya sa isipan ng marami.

Sunday, February 26, 2012 | 0 comments

Age
23  

Height

10 

School Attended
Year level & course
Bachelor of Commerce - undergraduate

Zodiac Sign
Pisces

Celebrity Crush
Talent
DJ/Actor/Model 

Hobbies
 Exercise, travelling, eating (not cooking!) 

Three adjectives to describe
ambitious, inquisitive, clumsy

ON LIFE
Do you have any regrets? Can you cite one?
Not really, I do what I do based on my current knowledge and experience. Sure there are things I can look back on now and say, 'Dam that was stupid', but in the big scheme of things, I don't blame myself for those things. How can you expect someone to know better, when they don't know better to begin with? you learn from these things and move on, you cant change the past, only the future. 

Who has been the biggest influence on your life, and why?
 I don't think there is any one person, I combine the best influences of many to create a set of habits/rules to live by. 

What are the best places you've been to?
 In the Philippines the Underground River in Palawan was amazing to see, I visited to film a movie (Madaling Araw Mahabang Gabi) which made the experience a bit different to the typical tourist experience. I wasn't expecting it to be so big inside! Definately a site I would recommend to my friends.

What's your fantasy career?
Well its a bit late now but I love the idea of being a great explorer way back before modern globalization. I love the feeling of travelling to new lands, not knowing what to expect, doing and seeing things that no one else does. 
If you die, how would you like to be remembered?
It may sound humble but I think the ultimate success in life is raising a family that is proud and thankful of their roots. I would like to be remembered as a good father.
Do you still have insecurities?
For sure everyone has insecurities. For me I tend to avoid things that I know will create them. 

Where do you see yourself five/ten years now?
Wondering where I will be in another five/ten years [Laughs] 

ON SCHOOL
What kind of student are you?
One that likes to go off on tangents [Laughs]

Do you party even on school nights, and how do you deal with the day ahead of you?
 If the occasion calls for it.. like if it was my birthday! otherwise I'm not so interested, I hate feeling like I have wasted a day.

Do you think your course is difficult? What makes it so?
 No, I just think juggling the time management aspect is. My schedule is very ad-hoc so planning things in the future, even for tomorrow, can be a waste of time. 


ON LOVE
Ideal Girl


Single or not?
Single 

*IF SINGLE
Have you been in relationship before? What happened?
 Yes but modelling got in the way. Long distance relationships are very hard and I am yet to find a way to make them work. 

What are your preferences in the opposite sex?
 A girl that can hold intelligent conversation, without being too serious. It can be a delicate balance, but it is one worth looking for. 


ETC:
What are the biggest projects in both modeling and acting that you ever had? 
 TVC's are normally the biggest. Currently in the Philippines I think my TV Commercial with Anne Curtis has had the biggest circulation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9nMLejvsm4)
Dream Projects:
To work on a massive location shoot as part of a Hollywood production. 
Have you received any indecent proposal? 
Luckily as a guy, I dont get it as bad as a lot of the female models. Many people make tongue in cheek jokes but when those jokes turn serious that is when I can get offended. 

How'd you start modeling? 
In the philippines I was discovered by Elite Manila. I had work here and stopped by to try out the market. I fell in love and have been in the Philippines ever since. 


Brands/designer you've worked with:
Cartier, LG, Palmolive, Hugo Boss, Hyundai, Rustans  

Found love in modeling? 
No however I applaud those that do, relationships in international modelling are 'certainly not' easy to maintain

When Our Stars Fall
Friday, February 24, 2012 | 0 comments
"As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once."
     Goodreads subscribers must have had a valid reason for giving John Green's latest book, The Fault in Our Stars, a good 4.67 rating. And I may not be able to give justice to the book with mere words for a simple book review, but please bare with me.

The Fault in Our Stars (182/365)

     Hazel Grace has Stage IV thyroid cancer when she was 12, but a miracle happened when a drug shrunk the tumors in her lungs. She lives. For now. However, she's dependent to the oxygen tank connected to her. It was her company. It was her best friend. Without it, she would be nothing.

     Then she meets Augustus Waters, who is in remission, at a cancer kid support group. And just like all girl-and-boy stories, they fall in love with each other. A cancer patient for a cancer patient. Who would disagree that they aren't perfect for each other? Augustus Waters, who's gorgeous and in love with Hazel Grace, wants to spend his one, last wish with the latter, and the author of An Imperial Affliction--a book Hazel loves, which she shared with Gus. Fast forward the events, and Gus dies. Simple as that, yet complicated in a way. Hazel thinks she is the one to go first but it was Gus. 
     "He wasn't perfect or anything. He wasn't your fairytale Prince Charming or whatever. He tried to be like that sometimes, but I like him best when that stuff fell away."
     Since the book's still new, and perhaps a lot of John Green (and non John Green, if any) fans haven't read it, I'll leave you to judge the book yourselves. But if you're asking me, it's beautiful, and heartbreaking, and sad--all at the same time. I mean, it's a John Green novel.

Books are forever.
Yours,
Marry
