I’ve been really busy since March. There’s house works, office works, and some freelancing. I’ll be sharing some of my works on my next posts – about designs and tutorials. Below are some invites I created.
Here’s a Winnie the Pooh-themed invite I made for my daughter’s first birthday. My wife thought of setting up a princess-themed party. But my daughter loves Pooh so we decided that we should instead use a Winnie the Pooh theme. And yeah, Gaea really enjoyed it though she fell asleep on some parts :).
I also created a fundraiser invitation for an event held in UK. I used images from Deviant Art. I would like to thank the contributors for making the images free – jazza-v and and ronaldinho911.

I was in total disbelief when I got an email from Mr. Sam about a certain Mr. Harry Thomas Jr. joining the yearly MovemberPI. The name sounds familiar as it belongs to the US Ambassador to the Philippines. I thought maybe Mr. Sam just mixed up the names so I replied and also asked for a picture that I can crop and add to the site. And man, I was stunned when I saw Amb. Harry Thomas Jr.’s picture on the reply. It’s really great to know someone popular, let alone a government official, joining a humble movement with a cause.
He even had a Facebook post about joining. And here’s his article about his father who fought against cancer.
Welcome to MovemberPI, Amb. Thomas! Thanks for being a Mo Bro.

Manny “PacMan” Pacquiao wins his 8th title in eight weight divisions as he smothered Antonio Margarito with lefts and rights for twelve rounds. It was almost a one-sided fight with me thinking that it was a shutout performance by the PacMan as he succeeded to claim the vacant WBC Super Welterweight title with a 150-pound catchweight.
|Pacquiao vs Margarito
Pacquiao entered the ring at 148 lbs while the Tijuana Tornado had a 17-pound advantage at 165. The PacMan also gave up almost 5 inches in height and 6 inches in reach. But after the bell sounded for the first round, speed and skill dictated the tempo. And those were the factors that determined the outcome.
Manny used his footwork, head and lateral movements, and his superior speed. When Margarito stalked on him, flurry of punches would start to connect from everywhere. Manny landed a total of 474 punches against Margarito’s 229. Pacquiao even looked at referee Laurence Cole, later in the bout, asking him to stop the fight but Cole allowed it to go on. The Mexican had a cut under the right eye and was almost closed during the later rounds. I remembered Margarito, on HBO’s 24/7, saying that when Manny gets in the ring, he’d probably think, “What have I gotten myself into?“. Margarito could’ve been asking that himself after the first round.
Even though the Filipino dynamo dominated the fight, he had a hard time putting the Mexican down to the canvass. Margarito is really tough. He even smiled at Manny after a combination of punches landed on his face. Manny was quick to admit to his opponent’s toughness,
“I did my best,” Pacquiao said. “He’s strong. He’s a very tough fighter. I can’t believe [he took those punches].” – Yahoo! Sports
Congratulations Manny Pacquiao for this great win! And thank you for a very entertaining bout. God bless.
