Past-Present_Future


 
"Future - Present - Past"

The above composite picture I made up from various sources including the portrait of my friend Jasmine taken by David (my husband).

The girl on the water buffalo represents myself brought up in a humble and simple life in Catarman the provincial capital of Northern Samar in the Philippines.

In the middle of the picture I am thinking of possibly living in a big city and dreaming of what my life in the future may bring.

At present I am enrolled in Curtin Business School having completed a degree in accounting earlier this year at Murdoch University (Perth, Australia).

This is the start of a web page for myself which I hope to add to during this semester.

1st January 2006.
In the past three years it has been difficult for fresh commerce graduates to obtain accounting jobs in Perth - particularly for those of a mature age. Most firms prefer to employ people who have had experience. After hundreds of applications I found a part time job and progressed from there to a full time accounting position. I hope to complete the requirements for CPA this year.

Iwo Jima Filipino

 
"Iwo Jima Filipino"

21st April 2006.
Iwo Jima - Rosenthal
Yesterday I asked David if I could display the picture above which includes some of my friends. He is working on preparing a virtual photographic gallery of some of his work.

On the right is the famous photo of the second flag raising at Iwo Jima taken by Joe Rosenthal, the concept of which he had in mind while taking the picture.

Regarding the picture he says: "I see 'Iwo Jima Filipino' expressing a celebration of the successful struggle for Women's emancipation. It concentrates more on the individuals involved in the flag raising and appropriately it is a little boy who is determinedly planting a toy flag of the Philippines - they are roughly near the summit. Naturally, the flag points in the opposite direction.

In order from the left Jenny has a nursing degree, Myrna is a professional accountant, Edna is a botanist (Ph.D) and Cristy is a Mathematician (Ph.D)."
