"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

project 365: the third five

"The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement.
But the opposite of a profound truth may well
be another profound truth."

--Niels Bohr

day 11. barangay ginebra rules! the philippine cup of PBA was won by my team. ginebra beat san miguel after a 4-2 run during the best of 7 championship series. my allegiance to the team is influenced by my father and brother... and my youngest sister.

day 12. 'gaydar' is a recognized word in the dictionary (webster's). it was inducted to the roster of words ahead of 'blog' and 'bling'.

day 13. hip hop moves. 'nuff said.

day 14. robbie williams and alanis morissette sang and danced in the movie, de-lovely (2004), a biographical musical. alanis performed 'let's do it, let's fall in love' while robbie sang 'it's de-lovely.' other musical performers for the movie were elvis costello, sheryl crow, diana krall, and natalie cole. de-lovely starred kevin kline as the composer, cole porter, and ashley judd as linda porter. jonathan pryce and peter polycarpou who both performed in miss saigon also had roles in the movie!

day 15. not a hoax. amazing moment caught on cam!

the picture is authentic. the tiny hand in the picture is that of then unborn child, samuel armas, who at mere 21 weeks gestational age was operated on inside his mother's womb due to spina bifida. his hand flopped out of the womb just as dr. bruner, the doctor, was closing the incision. the doctor lifted the tiny hand gently and tucked it back in. what a moment! the operation happened on august 19, 1999. samuel was born healthy on december 2, 1999.

p.s. project 365: the third five covers the period 02.23.07-02.27.07. future updates on this project will be posted here.
