PEBA BADGE ENTRY

I am just recovering from a flu which I had to endure during the weekend. (Wag kayo mag-alala hindi ito swine flu, Yes...I still call it swine flu kasi naman ang dami-daming ipapalit na pangalan eh may number pa, ayoko pa naman ng number na may letter...hindi ko maiwasan maalala iyong lintek na algebra na yan. So i'd rather call it swine flu or ewan flu para madali). Anyway, medyo ok na ngayon. Kaya naman halos wala na akong oras gumawa ng kahit ano pero syempre, para sa PEBA eh gagawa ako ng oras at pipilitin ko gumawa ng badge para sumuporta sa isang napakagandang proyektong ito.

Kanina lang, naglibot ako ng konti sa blogosperyo at meron akong tatlong napuntahang blog na nakagawa na ng kanila designs for the PEBA Blog design Contest. Na-inspire ako sa mga gawa at sumuporta ng mga kapwa natin blogista tulad nila Lord Cm, A-Z-EL at ni Nebz. Sigurado marami pang iba iyong gumawa eh pero hindi ko pa nakikita kaya ito lang na-post ko.







Dahil sa mga badge na yan, at syempre sa talagang cause ng contests ay na-inspire din ako gumawa kaso, meron akong isang munting problema. Actually, baka hindi ito munting problema. Una, sana umabot pa ako sa deadline ng contest. Ikalawa, eh dahil sa nakagawa ako ng dalawang design kanina eh hindi ako makapag-decide kung ano ang aking gagawing entry sa contest na iyon. Tulong naman diyan oh please...(with matching beautiful eyes).





Design I


Design II

Pero syempre, para mas makapili kayo ng mas maganda. Ipapaliwanag ko ang ibig sabihin ng mga badge na ito.

Design I. This is the first design I was able to come up with. Among the first things you will notice is the background image which is no other than Dr. Jose Rizal himself, I decided to put him on the badge not only because he's one of the most identifiable Filipino icon but also because of various other reasons. Jose Rizal being an expat himself shares a lot of similarities with his modern day counter-parts. Like most Overseas Filipino Workers, Rizal was forced to leave the country and despite of the fact that he's been to many places which offers a much more secure and convenient life, Rizal--at the end of the day still chose to comeback to our homeland even if it caused him his life. In a way, Filipino Expats nowadays, more often than are forced to leave the country due to the absence of opportunities to live a comfortable life and to be able to provide for their families needs. For me, it's admirable to see those people who've seen the world but still chose to comeback to our homeland even if they have all the chances to just leave and bring their families over. In essence, when this people invest to their kids future, they are also investing for the future of the country so that someday there would be no need for anyone to leave and to make sacrifices. This concept is in line with one of this years theme "HOPE OF THE NATION".

On the image, you should also see the cartoon image of the various Filipino Workers which represents our flexibility, adaptability and the many skills that we Pinoy's have to offer the world. I believe this represents the other concept of the theme that says, A GIFT TO THE WORLD. Along with the other images that identifies PEBA, I believe design I is a visual representation of this years theme. "FILIPINOS ABROAD, HOPE OF THE NATION, A GIFT TO THE WORLD."

DESIGN II in contrast is much more simplier and visually speaking, I like it better than DESIGN I because of the dark background and the colorful typography. I placed emphasis on '09' because I believe that we will see more of PEBA in the coming years and that it will get better every year.

So, what do you think? Pls...cast your vote which design i should enter and let's all support the Philippine Expats/OFW Blog Awards.

UPDATE: I've decided to choose design ONE simply because of the long explanation for the symbolism. lols!



Design I

If you like this design, go ahead and vote for it. It is design number 5 on the PEBA site. (click the image) Thank you for supporting PEBA.

QUESTION AND ANSWER!

Sabi nila, pagdating daw sa mga beauty contest. "There is no such thing as a wrong answer" dahil ang sagot ng kalahok ay base sa kanyang perspektib na hinubog ng kanyang pansariling karanasan, paniniwala at sa mga bagay na kanyang pinahahalagaan. Walang tamang sagot, ngunit madalas may isang sagot, pagsalaysay at pagtugon sa mga katanugan na palaging mangingibaw dahil marahil ang mga salitang ito ay totoo para sa marami at hindi lang sa nasabing kalahok.

I agree, there is no such thing as a wrong answer, but I think there is a Wrong Question.




Ang Q&A portion sa mga beauty contest katulad ng Bb. Pilipinas ay ang pinaka-aabangan ng manonood dahil ito ang bahagi kung saan kadalasan napagdedesisyonan kung sino ang karapat-dapat magwagi. Isang patunay rito ang ingay na ginawa ng pagkapanalo ni Janina San Miguel noong nakaraang taon dahil marami ang nagsabing hindi siya karapat-dapat sa titulo. Ganoon na lang ang ingay ng nangyari kay Janina noong nakaraang taon dahil sa kanyan…

Haaay...naku!

I've been planning to change my blog lay-out for about a month now. In fact, I already started with a semi-flash version of my blog (wow! flash?)which I plan to install once I purchase my own domain. However, today's lay-out change is totally unexpected and just like most unexpected change...it is very frustrating.

I was supposed to change the lay-out of my test blog today but because my brain has been on vacation since April Fool's Day, I didn't really know what I was doing. I stupidly mistaken my actual blog as my test blog, so I wasn't even looking when I clicked on the save new template button. So instead, of working on the test blog. I ended up working on my blog which I really didn't intend to touch in the first place. For the time being, I'll just use this lay-out I made overnight.
