Research on indigenous knowledge of the Philippines
Explore the living beauty of the baybayin and discover how Philippine ancients thought within an indigenous worldview; share how baybayin writing symbols and other writing symbols and symbolism around the world have deeper meaning. The baybayin is an ancient writing system used in the Philippines before Western colonization. For modern Filipinos, discovering the mere existence of the baybayin is like discovering a missing piece of their cultural identity. Delving into baybayin meaning is one way that we Filipinos can reclaim the ancient beauty of our ancestors that is deeply embedded within our Filipino identities and our human existence.

Marla Viray, 23, is a journalist who always dreams anew. That is, upon the fulfillment of dreams previously pursued.She is now venturing into business journalism as a news writer for SNL Financial, an international business news provider with a Philippine office in Makati City.But that doesn’t mean she bade goodbye to her dear hometown altogether. She takes the five-hour bus ride from Manila to Pangasinan almost every weekend, just to eat the best ‘lutong bahay’ her mom prepares, spend precious time with family, laugh with friends, have breakfast in the garden, play with her dogs, jog, and many more.She still tries to contribute news features to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, even after resigning from her post as a northern Luzon correspondent.She previously served as a journalism instructor at Lyceum-Northwestern University in Dagupan City and greatly treasures the experience, including memories with her students there. =)This blog keeps her remembrances readily accessible, her experiences stored, her smile ever present.

Poeta y Diwata
Barbara Jane Reyes
I shy away from the word “Activist,” but wholeheartedly believe my work is “Political.” I believe when a Pinay writes, and she is the subject of her own narratives, then she is subverting those master narratives which have figured her as a voiceless and passive object. As a poet, I believe in using to the fullest potential form, punctuation, the page, and language; I believe in remodeling the master’s house using the master’s tools. I believe in subverting the master’s literary forms and art disciplines by simultaneously insinuating and forcing into his forms my own base of cultural and historical knowledge, thus contributing to the hybridizing and mongrelizing of what once was culturally exclusive. And finally, I believe in publishing, creating and leaving tangible evidence of our words, voices, and visions.
Ranting, raving, and fighting evil... all the way to the bank.
A personal money-making gig outside of your regular not-so-much of a money-making job. Or, a personal money-making gig because you don't need a job and you're all badass. It's a necessity and it's a free-for-all. It's survival of the craftiest.
Life experiences are like sentences - we are always looking for the full stop, the conclusion. It's OK to end a train of thought, but not thought itself. Thoughts are the beginning of our creation and are here to be creative. Thoughts are like the magic carpet on which the soul rides across eternity - in reality, there are no endings, no conclusions. Rest for the spirit (which is what we are) is when we allow only the current of the purest thoughts to flow through our mind - thoughts which carry good wishes and blessings for ourselves and others. This is not so much going with the flow, as being in the flow, and being refreshed by the flow. It is how we refresh ourselves. For when we have powerful, positive thoughts for and about others, who experiences them first?

I am a Filipino work-at-home mom.I used to hold a full-time job, first as a public school teacher, then as a writer/editor of English teaching materials.In 2010, I took a homebased writing job because I felt I needed to be at home to properly raise my headstrong daughter.

This blog will tackle the TRUE BEAUTY of the Filipina women, as we mainly discuss body acceptance. We want you to finally relate to the images that we will be posting. We want you to feel good about yourself. We want you to love your body 'cos it's the only one you've got. We want you to work with it and not fight with it. We want you to share as we share, vent as we vent, about the struggles we've all had due to the booming imperative (and dangerous) persuasion of the media. It's time to be REALLY comfortable in your own skin. What's the big, fat deal anyway?! Let everything bulge out! Embrace that beautiful belly. :) - See more at: http://www.theplumpinay.com/#sthash.etkaZMHO.dpuf

Blessed with three wonderful children, I am also a teacher, cook, nurse, playmate, and human jungle gym to two of them – two because one of our daughters is now an angel in heaven.

And as with all mothers who are raising young children, I shall perennially be praying that I be able to raise responsible, loving, and Christ-centered individuals.

One (pinay) mom who wants to spread the word of spread the word to save our mother earth
The ecomomwarrior site came to fruition after many years of self education about the state of mother earth and ultimately the encouragement of friends. As a mother of an almost four year old in New York City, I have witnessed first hand the environmental abuse that occurs on a daily basis and quite honestly depresses me to no end.ecomomwarrior as a phrase, speaks for itself and can be attained by any person, given the patience and will. We can all be eco warriors as long as we dedicate a life style that honors, appreciates and respects Mother Earth. We need to unlearn behaviors that society has forced onto us. We can all be eco moms; teach our children and our children’s children that we are the change that we want to be.This may sound like a bunch of crazy talk but if this site reaches one person and educates them to change their way of thinking or way of life then it is worth the rantings.

My name is Jenny.I started the Jenny’s Serendipity blog when I got sick early in the beginning of the year. I was off for one week and was bored out of my wits. I did not anticipate that I will be enjoying blogging so this is my new hobby now.Anyways, I am the youngest of 10 children. Being the youngest of the family, I tend to be more adventurous; a bit of a loose cannon; the artsy type; the clown of the family or the outrageous one; agreeable, but not always and the provoker [On a positive note!]. If you look up birth order in Google, I am the exact definition of the youngest child. Spot on!

I'm a self-taught photographer born and raised in the Philippines, and who has lived in the United States, Japan, Germany and England.

My affinity for bridges and reflections leads me to set up tripod along waterways, from the never-ending Danube to the romantic Rhine to the picturesque Seine and Thames, and the winding canals of Amsterdam and Venice.
