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.

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.
