There's a brief introduction about Pictures of Life (Hulagway sa Kinabuhi) on my sidebar just above the Bisdak links. An English version of this post is available below for friends & visitors who do not read Bisaya; and well, for fun in linguistic exercise as well.

E as in Eskina
Gusto ko moguwa kay naa koy buhaton sa banko pero pagdungaw ko pa sa porch kahilakon man ang langit. Mokober pa gyud ko rog taga Business Administration department nga absent busa puyo. Magtangla nalang tingale kos eskina hangtud mahuman ning diskarte sa lecture hall. Traynta minutos nalang sulod nako. Kada adlaw ko ni malabyan nga eskina.

Ang ubang entre sama ani tua sa Bisdak Bloggers.

Corner (Eskina)
I wanted to leave the campus for a bank errand but when I gazed out the porch I was greeted by gloomy skies. A colleague from the Business Administration department is absent today and it's just my luck to be chosen to cover for him, so I have to stay put for two periods :(  In thirty minutes I'm getting into the lecture hall. When this is done and I breeze out, I'm seeing this corner again. In fact I pass by the same spot everyday.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
