This was taken in 2005, with myself (Fisherman hat dude) and my Cousin Paul (Red shirt dude) along side with our soldier friend and Mr. sleeping soldier. My cousin’s father invited us to come in some sort of a military exercise just outside the road to Maria Cristina Falls, Iligan. My Cousin’s father is a reserve Major and also worked in the Maria Cristina Power plant in Mindanao.
We listen and learn on how life of a Philippine soldier is, how minimum their wages are, how they part with their families in order to do their duty as a soldier, one of them told us “a life of soldier is just big adventure.” and also told us stories.
When I was little kid I always dreamed about being a soldier that’s when I shifted dreaming about being a Pirate and a spaceman xD. I remember my aunt asked me why do I want to be a soldier? one thing that always pop in my mind is “protecting our own” I really don’t know where I get that, but I grew up with it.
I’ve been away from home for almost 6 years now, I remember whenever we visit other towns and cities, there are always check points, there always marines posted everywhere, and you always see armored cars and choppers passing by, we sometimes waved at them hoping they wave back, that was actually fun times,
now we hear the news about the Progress in Mindanao, we hope this peace and progress will last forever, no! we want this to last forever.
I really miss home.

I added new Tuning sound marks or (Paghuni sa pantingog kudlit) this are,
– long sound vowel (Taas pantingog),
– a glottal stop (Balî pantingog),
– a “ya sound” (Ya kudlit)
“which change any consonant inherent vowel to “ya” example: Dya, Sya etc.”
– a “ang sound” (ang kudlit)
“which adds any consonant inherent vowel to “ang sound” example: Kang, Dang etc.”
which I based my modern kudlit/mark on the Kawi script diacritical mark,
The design of the symbols are based on Visayan Tattoo and other austronesian elements, which represent both Upperworld (curvature characters) and Underworld (V shape characters) elements according to Austronesian beliefs (reference).
(I’m going to post that soon.)
There are words in Visayan that has the same spelling but different sound and meaning, this is the reason why we need to implement additional tuning marks,
for example the word “Baga” which means “scorching” in Sinugbu language, there are other words that has the same spelling like “Bagâ” which means “Thick”
and “bágá” which means “lungs” both has the same spelling but different sound vowels and meaning.
and by the way I also based my Vowel killer on Kawi script:
(Notice the bird shape pattern, the shape represent the upperworld element (reference).)

Si’Tukugu the Brave and Si’Manuku, Spirit of the Hills pass
Manuku design is inspired by Ashti work, since I don’t know how to draw a cute pikachu 😛
Tukugu design is inspired by the Visayan Lord customs, his carrying a Talibong sword from Leyte or Samar? I’m not sure. the tattoo design is inspired by the Bisayas Illustration on The Boxer codex manuscript, I made his teeth white since he hates to chew on betel nuts, he only eats fish 😛
Manuku is a Ancestral spirit Tarsier from the island of the hills, he found Tukugu in the ravaged village attacked by raiders from the other island, since then Manuku took care of Tukugu as he grew up, Manuku teaches Tukugu how to survive and to fight, Tukugu then left the Island of the hills with Manuku to look for the sacred artifacts pass down by Tukugu’s ancestral tribe that has been stolen by the raiders, along the way Tukugu met some other people from other places, then later joined Tukugu and Manuku for his adventure, finding the lost sacred atrifacts (to be continued)
