PISO per Minute.
Here is a business venture which is a direct result of lack of income, limited resources, a bit of creativity and a lot of wishful thinking.
Those who thought of this must’ve gotten tired of doing favors for others for free and decided to make a profit out of it.
They’re making messengerial work a free enterprise.
Funny business, but as long as they make money from it – then why not.
Pinoy entrepreneurs today are taking innovating traditional stuffs and franchising it a little bit too seriously. It went from making fish ball and banana cue food carts to ice scramble and then barbecued ISAW. Yes, folks… barbecued Isaw food carts and their selling like hotcakes – so to speak. If you happen to pass by the MRT Cubao-Aurora station try and look for it.
What would they think of next?
My father suffered and died from emphysema a chronic excruciating disease of the lungs due to excessive smoking.
He was a chain smoker.
He was a good father.
Actually, smoking doesn’t kill the smoker at once but it prolongs the addiction long enough so that when your body becomes too weak from the toxins, that’s the time when all the breathing problems and other ailments occur. And you have no choice but to cope with the suffering and the inconveniences of paying up for all the times you have abused your body.
It is a very costly disease. The maintenance medications and immediate relief drugs are so expensive not to mention the regular check-ups and the twice or thrice a year visit to the emergency room for serious attacks.
Smoking kills and that is an indisputable fact. If my story above doesn’t sound convincing enough, then check out what a single stick of cigarette contains:
Of course there are a lot of those who don’t give a shit about all of these warnings and what’s-it-abouts.
I have to tell you, that it is not only your funeral, it is also your loved ones’. All the people you cared about and who cared for you, it is them who you should consider with every puff.
I am not talking about second-hand smoke dangers which is also very true, but the greater menace would be leaving them because you’ve made that choice.
Making them suffer by letting them see you suffer from your disease years from now.
I have chanced on a smokers blog site yesterday and he said in one of his posts that studies says that lung cancer is a disease that can’t really be attributed to smoking (just like what everyone is saying) but with old age and a poor immune system.
If that is true, then by all means let us all die of lung cancer due to old age. Still, without opening a pack of cigarette.
You have a choice.
Smoking kills only those who allow IT to.
Shadow cast plays an important aspect in this work. The fabric was more alive with the dull background complementing and showing a dramatic effect on the subject.
Oil Paintings by Rob Hefferan
Rarely do I see paintings that really brings to life characters – there are three things that make Rob’s paintings so remarkable: Skin tone, Fabric and Movement.
All of which expressed masterfully by his skillful hands onto his paintbrush.
View some of his works here that can be found exhibited in galleries all over the world.
This one elegantly and boldly expressed light. Take notice of the skin tone - it is so fantastically done.
This one is more expressive than realistic. The mood set was excellent that the details came in secondary.
Sensual and romantic. Darker tones in my opinion are harder to create that is why this is so outstanding. Once again, this is so masterfully made.
