I made some illustrations of the scenes from Chapters 16, 19 and 20 of Noli me Tangere, written by our esteemed national hero, Jose Rizal. Looking back at these illustrations which I did roughly eight years ago as a school project, I must confess that these were badly drawn! Well, maybe because I used MS Paint and mouse. Still I was amazed on how I imagined the scenes.
This is the town of San Diego.
This is Sisa, preparing a wondrous feast for her two sons, Basilio and Crispin, who will be coming home from their sacristan duties. However, things will go wrong for the rest of the chapter.
This is during the conversation of the teacher in San Diego and Don Ibarra Crisostomo. The teacher is stating his bad experiences in his initiative to improve the education in San Diego.
This is during the meeting for the upcoming fiesta in San Diego, on how they will spend the money, etc. The conservatives and liberals will later on debate with their ideas.
ACLE or Alternative Classroom Learning Experience is an annual event by Values Education and other humanities subject. Companies from different sectors are invited to give talks and lectures, and this year are Jollibee, Yellow Cab, Bejeweled Slippers, Goldilocks, Innovations, etc. I registered late so I was left with Bejeweled Slippers.
I didn’t expect much but I was relieved that the lecture was quite fun and inspiring. Partly because it was somehow related to Economics which we were studying now; stuff like entrepreneurship and profits. Moreover because I was hooked by their slippers.
What’s good and unique about them is the gems or jewels embellished on ordinary slippers. Each is designed with cute sequences which really has a touch of feminine style. Slippers today are generally sold with prints. But I think this was my first time seeing slippers designed in such a shiny way.
They were a bit pricey but then I thought it was a perfect opportunity to buy my mother an advanced birthday gift since she doesn’t usually buy sandals for herself. So I bought a pair of Bejeweled Flats or Jazz in Beige.
