  • Reformative

    I was lying down the barren bermuda grass with a triple-bent fork in my crotch talking about the Anahaw plant. That was a patch of land about six square meters. We used to wrestle and waste each other there, my cousins and I… Would you stay or would you not? Wait… consider that you were…

  • Sunday Morning

    It Is Sunday Morning While everyone is asleep still, enjoying their respite from the yesterday’s bustle, I am wide awake. I let the hours pass by an occasional dreamless slumber. I’ve been loved, hated, loved, hated, loved… And it always ends up the same. Never a cycle and my behavioral pattern abruptly ends at this…

  • Drafting Applicator Version Zero

    Branching out from HopScotch, I am reformulating mostly the front-end of the theme. Here comes Applicator – which I plan to submit to WordPress Free Themes. The basic HTML skeleton are based on WordPress Twentyfifteen and HTML5 Boilerplate / Mobile. Basically the content of <head> are snippets from these awesome frameworks. Currently, I am building…

  • Active Element

    An Active Element is a user interface element that can be interacted with. It’s something you do something on (like click, tap, type on). A very basic example is a text link like this: [codepen_embed height=”266″ theme_id=”1820″ slug_hash=”GpyBgM” default_tab=”result” user=”BrianSahagun”]See the Pen Text Link by Brian Dys Sahagun (@BrianSahagun) on CodePen.[/codepen_embed] Or a button like…

  • 4 Minutes of Deafening Silence

    You know what I can’t stand for 4 minutes? Listening to classical music radio station while driving. We try it, Jaycelle and I, from time to time if we can stand it. At times, when we’re word-battling, we don’t notice the music in the background. But at times when you put your ears into it? Nah, next…
