#ArtPH - Ryan Rubio's Instinctual Creation



Ryan Rubio sources rocks such as green quartz, granite, and silica from the seas and rivers of his hometown Paracale. For him, any material could be used and any time a perfect time for a search. He chooses the rocks that fit the image he has in mind, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle still unclear in his vision. "I see this is a collaboration with nature," he said. There are certain materials that he uses as is - without any alteration as he sees these resources as already perfect in the way nature formed them. They are left untouched except for a coat of gloss to let their natural color come out. The rocks have distinct shades and shapes that no tool could ever create. It is only through inherent factors like heat, salinity, depth of water that it is possible to attain such characteristics.

Some of his works:

Innate Vision

He shared that he wanted to moved the 2D images from his painting to 3D images thus resulting to Instinctual Creation. Before he transitioned to stones, he is using wood and metal as his material for his artworks. 

Yes Be Yes! No Be No!
Being an artist will come out naturally in each and everyone of us. Everyone will have his or her own struggles. - Ryan Rubio.

she's looking at you!

Beautiful faces with beautiful feelings.

#FoodPH - I found my BAY! Sharing my Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus Experience!

Every time I explore a place, besides attractions and artsy stuff, I always look forward to have a gastronomic adventure. Philippines is composed of more or less 7,107 islands and it’s always a battle for each place who has the best of this and this. In terms of seafood, Visayas and Mindanao always compete with each other. Having said that, as I was doing my groceries, I come across a frozen product from Sarangani.


Sarangani is one of the provinces in the Philippines which is part of South Cotabato. This place is rich for natural resources both in land and in sea. It boasts its expertise in aquaculture proven as they are the Philippines’ largest processor and exporter of premium quality bangus as well as many other processed seafood products.

It was really catchy to see milkfish in bright blue packaging showcasing the freshness of the milkfish. I bought the marinated baby milkfish in original and spicy flavor. I was really excited to try it because I am craving for “daing na bangus” for weeks so imagined how my eyes glistened when I saw Sarangani Bay Premium Bangus!  Each pack is composed of 5pcs. of high quality marinated baby milkfish and I must say that it’s affordable for its price. 


I am slowly transitioning to fish from red meat diet as it has more health benefits. It provides various health benefits due to the vitamins and minerals it contains such as iron, zinc, iodine, vitamin B1, folic acid, and especially the omega-3 fatty acids that is known to prevent heart diseases.

Having a taste of freshness in a pack is not anymore a surprise but it’s commendable how Sarangani Bay maintains its standards and quality of their products. Commercially packaged frozen fish can taste as good as fresh caught harvests because they are carefully “fresh frozen” within a very short time after being caught, locking in freshness and flavor.


I am looking forward to try the bangus belly and smoked milkfish! To know more about Sarangani Bay, visit www.saranganibay.com.ph.

Have you tried this product? Let me know your thoughts about it.

Change The Way You See Friendship!


Change the way you see friendship!

As they say, friends are extension of one’s family. You chose them to be part of your life and there’s no such thing as accidental friendship. It’s a matter of choosing the people who surrounds you which makes you a better person despite of all the challenges you’re facing every day.

I am sharing you some points on choosing the people whom you can consider as friends.

1. Choose people who are family oriented.

For me, it says a lot if a person is family oriented. It just means that even you’re just friends, you’ll be treated as part of the family. These people are those who care more and will extend help if needed. These are the people who love unconditionally and one you can depend on.

2. Choose people who has big goals and loves to challenge themselves.

Surround yourself with people who like challenges, adventure and taking big risks for self-improvement or development. These type of people will unleash the competitiveness within you and will take each moments to the extreme. It’s always a roller coaster ride with them.

A good friend listen to your adventures, A best friend makes them with you!

3. Choose people who shares the same passion.

Not everyone knows exactly what he or she wants in his or her life. You are lucky enough if you have someone whom you can share things you loved to do and explore different sides of your creativity. Knowing your purpose in life can mean one thing and sharing it with people who has that same passion is another. Create a positive energy that flows within and radiates on the outside making a positive change out of the passion that burns in you.

4. Choose people who are genuinely happy with your achievements.

Some people will say that they’re happy whenever you achieve something great but deep inside they’re jealous and will say “You don’t deserve it bitch!”. But there are those people who will be genuinely express that they’re glad with everything you are going through may it be a promotion at work, having the highest score in a subject, winning a contest, nominated for something you are really good at etc. These people who are genuinely happy with your achievements whatever may it be must be kept in your life. They are the ones who see the goodness in you!

5. Choose people whose there during your low/lowest point.

We face a lot of challenges every day and at some point becomes one of the obstacles friendship may face. It’s nice to have people around you during those happy moments but it is in your lowest lows that it matters most. Having a strong support from these people will bring back the joy in you and will make each difficulty bearable. It is in these rough moments where people can show their true concern to you and will help you out in any way they can.

The most memorable people in life will be the friends who loved you when you weren’t very lovable.

6. Choose people who choose you.

I do believe that there’s such thing as ELIMINATION ROUND in friendship. Not everyone is meant to stay in your life as some of them is just temporary. People are there to teach you a lesson or two. Whoever stays in your life, these are the people you’ve chosen and chose you as well.

A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends never part.
