Get On… Pagudpud

A day in the region of Pagud­pud. Ilo­cos Norte, Philip­pines. This place usu­ally has awe­some weather but we hap­pen to just catch a storm. Oh well, it wasn’t too bad head­ing out and doing some hikes and explo­ration by flip-flop. We went to only visit the North-side as we needed to get back down to Laoag later on that day. (Feb 2013)

All shot on the GoPro HERO2 HD. Edited on FCP X. My first time using it; sucks that you can’t trim the rejected partial-clips like in iMovie ’11. I might have to do the trim­ming before­hand, as unwanted file-space is adding up.

“ill-ocano” — An Adobe Illustrator Warmup

I’ve been doing some exper­i­men­ta­tion with Adobe Edge this past week since it’s pre­view release on Mon­day. I fig­ure to have a break, and do some exer­cises with Adobe Illus­tra­tor. Hence, the above: “ill-ocano”.

The Ilo­cano or Ilokano peo­ple are the third largest Fil­ipino eth­no­lin­guis­tic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilo­canos, from “i”-from, and “looc”-bay, they also refer to them­selves as Sam­toy, from the Ilo­cano phrase “sao mi ditoy”, mean­ing ‘our lan­guage here.’ The word “Ilo­cano” came from the word “Iloco” or “Yloco.“1

Yes, it looks like the spelling is off, but the expla­na­tion of why it is so and the exer­cise is right after the jump.
