“Waiting For A Sign” by Armi Millare/ Loudbox Studios
And I’ll hold my breath just until the train stops. Then I’ll count to ten. Maybe I’ll see raindrops as I’m waiting for a sign.
The cat wakes me up a minute before the alarm goes. I can tell myself won’t need him to say so. Waiting for a sign
Lean on to me don’t ever look back again no never ‘cause I am waiting forever. This is more than a sign, I am here and you’re mine.
If he takes me out and we talk til midnight. And he holds my hand til then I’ll just sit tight. Just waiting for a sign.
“Anong hihintayin mo?Yung magkaroon sya ng sign dito sa noo nya nakalagay Date Tayo?”
~Nestle Philippines Kasambuhay Habambuhay Short Film Anthology:
- Watch the film, “Sign Seeker” here. :D
- The song in this video was not the full version. I hope they will release an album containing all the soundtracks of Nestle’s short film anthology Kasambuhay Habambuhay. Haha.
architect as embroiderer?
Ornament is a crime” wrote Adolph Loos in 1908. This sentence was opening one century of disdain for architecture’s aesthetic developed by modernism. A hundred years later, a School claims for an embrace of ornament via computation. This approach of architecture is highly debatable since it seems to fully accept the role of the architect as only a embroiderer who would be able to express his creativity in non-essential elements (just like the French law which plans that 1% of every public building’s budget should be dedicated to a piece of art).

Installation in the Greek pavilion of the 2012 Venice Biennale, by AREA Architecture
AREA’s Athens Charting installation at the 2012 Venice Biennale - Greek Pavilion unites four Athens city blocks into one, giant public space, in the form of a 3.3m x 2.5m paper model. Part urban survey, part spectacle, the model is entirely hand-drawn with blue ink on white paper. Representing the city as a continuous surface that is, nevertheless, heterogeneous and culturally inscribed, the model seeks to engage the dynamic and rapidly changing context that characterizes Greek cities today.
