Man VS Fish

leave a comment »

We found ourselves a new hobby.

Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve been fascinated with the art of fishing. I grew up near a river where a lot of locals’ favorite past time is fishing. Early in the morning, people gather by the riverside with their rods and baits and spend the whole day fishing. Whoever catches the biggest fish goes home with a bragging right and a delicious dinner. There even came a time when fishing was so big, they had to organize a tournament that was held in Tabangao, Batangas City.┬áComplete with a committee, boats and coast guards, the tournament pushed through. The contest was sponsored by San Miguel Beer and people around the country joined.

Then, we moved to a new house. I’ve forgotten everything about it. My memories were triggered by a friend of mine a few days ago when he asked me to join him on a fishing trip near Philippine Ports Authority. Our first fishing trip and both of us caught a fish. After that, a lot of our buddies became interested with it and wanted to join the next fishing trip. I even asked my brother from Canada to bring our father’s fishing rod when he goes home for his vacation this coming July.

These pictures were taken in during our fishing trips in Pinamucan, Batangas and near PPA.

I remember during my sophomore year in high school,me and my buddy went to this place in Lipa City,Batangas.The place is called Big Ben.It’s like an arcade.It houses boutiques,a billiard hall,a few fastfood joints and some stalls.I remember back then,that was 1998,there was a comic book stall.I grew up admiring comic book characters and cartoon characters.I was an 80’s kid.Nothing like the kids today growing up playing PS3’s and Xbox360’s.So there we were,checking out comic books.i remember back then,we originally planned to purchase the death of superman.Then i noticed a couple of comic books close to where the death of superman was located.The comic book’s title is Stone.I did some research and i found out that it was created by a Filipino comic book artist named Whilce Portacio.I was immediately interested with it.It had a Filipino touch in it because the main character’s nemesis are all taken from Filipino Folklore like aswang,manananggal and kapre.So when i got the chance to go back there,i looked for the comics again.To bad they don’t have copies anymore.After more than a decade,i decided to continue collecting comics and graphic novels.I was just wondering if i can still find copies of the comic book.

Big Ben,Lipa,Batangas

My fellow comic book fans,i need your help in locating this comic book.Thanks.
