Transforming bad ‘Memories’ into beautiful art objects

  Designer Josef Crisanto recalls that in his childhood, his father was not consistently present in his life. The boy saw him at night, during an evening ritual of stroking his fighting cocks while having a glass of whiskey on ice. The sound of fluttering wings, the jingle of ice cubes, the dash of amber whiskey kept the father company. Crisanto has not seen his father in 26 years. Hence, this memory lingers in the designer's mind.   As an homage to his absentee father, he has created a large-scale whiskey glass, titled "Daddy." In a press statement, Crisanto said he is making a collection for a client, using a synthetic material that embodies the qualitie...Keep on reading: Transforming bad ‘Memories’ into beautiful art objects.....»»

Cargo pre-shipment inspection could thwart drug smuggling –Atienza

  Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza urged President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday to order the compulsory pre-shipment inspection (PSI) of all containerized imports to prevent the large-scale smuggling of illegal drugs into the country.   Atienza renewed his call for the mandatory PSI after the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said around P11 billion worth of "shabu" slipped past the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in July.
