tales and legends





Maria Makiling. She is the most widely known diwata or fairy in Filipino Folklore. This illustration is my own version of her. . I read tagalog books about Philippine tales and legends in my younger years and she was one of my favorite. and here is the first link I found in the net. I had not much time to check on other links.
I am not well and still very tired, and my right eye is continously moving(winking etc) for three days now. Something is keeping me from not going to the doctor. I am not sure what it is.......Damn, I am so stubborn.

Silly, stubborn person- you must take care of yourself and get well! Get thee to a doctor, friend, if you're not well soon.

*hug*

Feel better soon!
