Kapangyarihan

kapangyarihan (kapangyar´ihan) n. power, authority

This illustration was used as main visual for an article in the March 2008 issue of Baby Magazine with the title Tantrum Control 101: What to do when your child throws a tantrum in public by Jamie Ilao. The article itself talks about how to handle a situation when your little angel suddenly burst into hellfire and unleashes the evil twin.

I, on the other hand, call this illustration, "Kapangyarihan." As a parent, myself, I wanted to show the
helplessness of the parent under the "power" of the screaming child. Parents are really weak against their crying children. It is not easy dealing with tantrums especially with quizzical glances from the judging public. Do us a favor and try to look (and walk) away whenever you find someone in this situation. Believe me, when you have children of your own....

"Damn this cheap guitar!" I reassured myself after fumbling again with a simple chord progression from an early 90's song from a band named after some spices... I've been at it for hours on end since I bought this guitar at a mall sale. My fingers were tender and I was really frustrated. I was blaming the innocent instrument, betraying what I always believed that making a thing of beauty lies on the craftsman and not his tools. Out of nowhere, I felt a wave of grief... like somebody dear to me has died long ago and I've only come to realize at that moment. Holding back the tears was futile. I can no longer play.
