The concept of the design is structured meets drape.

The ribbon buckled at the front goes around at the back which gives a structured feel to an off-shoulder, sleeveless dress.

This is a one-piece garment where the hemline falls just above the knee. The draped fabric gives a soft touch reminiscent of ancient goddesses.

Pay It Forward: Topic for Week #36: Thanksgiving

Give thanks for the gifts and things we receive

It’s not how big or small the gesture is

But on the essence that we truly give

An acknowledgment that we should not miss


Give thanks for another beautiful day

For the time that we are going to spend

Or the sunset to marvel at the bay

For work and for play that we mix and blend


Give thanks for the people we meet and greet

From what we’ve learned from them – insights and views

We encounter like a kindred spirit

Thankful for the options we get to choose


If we are to return the good favor

Pay it forward and do it with fervor

Uncle Sam’s Fate: Topic for Week# 35: US Elections / Republican / Democrat

We are looking for someone to lead us
A person who shares the same ideals
With a vision to carry is a plus
With hopes in advancement for the casuals

Tackling ev’ry issue with a debate
A meeting of the minds for the nation
That will help determine Uncle Sam’s fate
The turn of events in the election

So be Republican or Democrat
It’s conservative versus liberal
A sojourn with each John Doe’s caveat
Here’s to levies and laws strong upheaval

Conceding with dignity, they report
Along with the promise of full support

Braid: A Furniture Sketch

I made the sketch below…

which was inspired by my jelly flats…

I’m thinking of indigenous materials like rattan, abaca and the like for the actual piece.

Eternal Sleep or a Spring of Breath – Topic for Week# 34: Death

I tend to cry for topics such as this

We get the same fate sooner or later

I just don’t want to lose people I’ll miss

Guts, will and strength I have then to muster


Death, it comes to us unexpectedly

So cherish all the ones you love and care

Accepting flaws and all wholeheartedly

Quality time and attention to share


It is the natural cycle of birth

To learn, grow-up and give way to new blood

Relinquishing our purpose here on earth

From dust and yes we will return to mud


What we have to do is live the present

This should be our unwavering statement

Peter Pan

Let me tell you a story

‘bout a boy who never grows old

A tale as old as knights and Holy Grail

With versions in different tongues

It stretches from far away lands,

o’er the mountains, across the shore

Take heed as we follow him in his adventures

Fairies and pixie dust

Treasures, jewels and emblem crusts

Chase away dreams in Neverland

Looking in his eyes with infinite wonder

His heart of gold waiting to unfold

A grotesque way but I’m falling / flying

Escape the everyday

Blurred visions and words coming into play

To (Be) Inspire(d) – Topic for Week# 33: Inspire / Inspiration

Whenever I encounter writer’s block

I’d immerse myself in this happy world

Rather than watch the time flies at my clock

A kaleidoscope that is turned and swirled


I take inspiration in things I see

Be motivated by people I know

To whatever, whoever I might be

Everything is not for a circus show


Inspiration comes in the form of goals

Or situations that stir emotions

Or views and thoughts that flow from kindred souls

Anything that calls and commands actions


So if you will ask, “What do you aspire?”

I long to be inspired and to inspire

Fan Fiction – Topic for Week#32: Magic

If life is full of magic and potions

Will it create a world full of mystique?

The use of sparks, fireworks and explosions

Orcs, elves and fairies of diff’rent physique


Will you depend your life on magic cards?

Or see the future on a crystal ball?

Some old tricks made by witches and wizards

Enchanted forest where trees are so tall


Are these things happening all in my head?

Curious explorations made by the mind

Stories of fiction while I lie on bed

Works of wonder in troves that you will find


Real or not, sometimes it’s good to believe

But in the present is where we should live

Like Water – Topic for Week#31: Water

Water cools you down

From the heat and dry weather

It refreshes you


Take the water spring

It gives  life and nourishment

Vitality sings

Its fluidity

Capable of taking form

Whatever shape, size


Live and co-exist

With diff’rent people around

Dealing with others


Off to the distant

Sailing away to nowhere

Where I stay afloat


It’s an element

A spring that breaks this dry land

It quenches one’s thirst


Still waters run deep

Please let me know what you think

A glimpse in your mind


Water flows the earth

A resource that’s getting scarce

Not unless we learn
