The Power of THREE

...Or whatever it's called. No, it's not CHARMED. It's just a meme tagged to me by Eric (a.k.a Senor Enrique). Had a little bit of time after taking lunch this afternoon so i answered it while drinking coffee.

3 things that scare me:
- Not being able to care and help people that matters most to me
- prostitutes
- dying without making a difference

3 people who can make me laugh:
- My son
Ricky Gervais
- pretentious people who thinks they're so special and is somewhat glorified by a bunch of suckers

3 things I love:
- My family
- Allan Moore and Frank Miller graphic novels
- Some clean empty sheets of nice white paper to write, draw and put ideas with

3 things I hate:
- war
- people who brands comics as "children's books" ( children's book my ass) and comic artists as "some cartoonist".
- parents who breeds too much but are not responsible and incapable of tending to their kids' growing needs, from the very basic of food, clothig, shelter and education.

3 things I don't understand:
- why MacDonalds just throw away tons of unconsumed food daily when there are so many people in the world dying from hunger
- women with pms
- people associating club drinking with having GROs

3 things on my desk:
- Piles of papers (drawings, correspondence, printouts)
- pencil and multi-point filt-tip pens
- some pictures

3 things I'm doing right now:
- Thinking if I'm going to have another cup of coffee after downing the 4th cup just now
- Drafting the revised landscape working drawings for an india project
- Answering this, of course

3 things I wish to do before I die:
- Publish my very own 300-page graphic novel
- See my son in a professional football league (he likes to play)
- To know that I've made a significance to the lives of people that means to me and in turn realize their collective contribution to my growth as an individual

3 things I can do:
- draw
- love
- telling anyone in their face what they are

3 ways to describe my personality:
- quite (though i'm often labeled arrogant because I don't talk too much)

- I used to teach Architecture classes part- time in two colleges in Cagayan de Oro while having architectural job full- time (before coming here in Singapore)
- Had a huge, huge crush on Jennifer Conelly as a teenager in the movie "Labyrinth". The movie also featured David Bowie.
- Bought my first record at 6th grade. America's "One in a Million" album. Played it over and over again especiallythe track "I don'r believe in Miracles". My parents got so fed and sick with it they hid it.

3 things I can't do:
- I don't drive 4- wheels. The only one in my siblings who don't. i've had an accident in high school that nearly killed me and it serves as a reminder to me everytime I took the wheel.
- stop admiring beauty
- fuck around
