hmm... de-banned na ba talaga ako? LOL

I just discovered that I get "insta-banned" if I access this forum using a VPN with a U.S. based IP Address...
work around is to delete all cookies of "pinoypc.net", clear the browser's cache and log-in again.

tried that, same pa din eh.. ngayun naka log in ako, later nyan Banned na ulit

I rarely draw human figures but I wanted to join a fan art making contest for Mobile Legends.

This pic shows the improvements I got after a few hours of sketching.



Afterwards, I applied watercolor.



Not bad. The feedback I got from a female friend?

"Ganda ng singit."

 :lol:

I am more into landscape, night sky and still life when it comes to watercolor. I enjoyed making the fan art and might go into drawing pinups as well.

health-related question:

lemonade has become a pretty popular beverage these days and there's a particular lemon place near the office (lemon stop) which even gives you the option to add mint leaves, ginger, cucumber slices, lemongrass, etc.  if i just get the plain lemonade or even the ones with added fresh ingredients and i specifically tell them not to add any sugar/honey...would that constitute a healthy drink?  case in point:  last week, i tried their lemon + ginger + lemongrass and said no sugar...so it was sour with a little kick from the ginger.  reason i'm asking is that i plan to ditch the iced coffee habit and just go for the plain lemonade or the little add-ons instead...again...always no sweetener/sugar and i can see how it's made so i know the stuff they're putting in.  thoughts?

Any reduction in sugar is good. I'm now taking plain black coffee (no sugar or cream). Pretty bitter but after a while you get used to it. Also limit myself to 1 cup a day.

for the past 6mos been drinking lemon + Honey + apple cider vinegar every morning when I wake up
& oh I use all what is lemon except the seed.
I boil 3 lemons @ 2 liters water in a pressure cooker for about 6 minutes which makes the lemon squishy
then I blender the softened lemon & mix it back to 2L of water   

then whole day sa office my water is either green tea or malunggay herbal tea which smells like piss lol
+ 1 cup of coffee @11am as a break fast
what is love? baby don't hurt me, no more.

Either I'm getting too old or the Philippines has mostly caught up (consumer tech-wise) with the rest of the world. Just got back from a conference in Singapore and got billeted at a hotel with walking distance to Sim Lim Square. Browsed around and none of the stuff they were selling appealed nor impressed me. Also found Gunpla in Singapore is expensive.

That's because consumer tech is plateauing.  And novelty is only reserved for the high end parts and even those aren't so spectacular given their marginal utility.

I was thinking the ubiquity of e-commerce sites lically like Lazada and even Newegg and Amazon now delivering locally is also a factor.

Yeah a bidet would be nice, some of my batchmates bought a complete bidet retrofit before they went home from Japan.
