Lola Eteng (Grandmother)
She'd wake up early in the morning and head to the
market to sell vegetables (and later some jewelleries).
Recently I learned that people in the market are there
by 04:30am. Some earlier and some sleeps there.
Grandma has this way of communicating, she'd scare
the shit out of you and also she'd be the calm of it all.
There were many quarrels in the household but only
she could maintain the whole family together because
everyone actually cared about her. She has the say end
of the day between all men.
Until her death, she united the family together.
Thank you Lola Eteng!
About Digital Portrait Series
My recent family visit in the Philippines in August
2019 has got me thinking, reflecting and very much
in a limbo of being born from the east and most of
my adulthood in the west.
Dedicated these digital drawings to my family as a
form of celebration in unity and love.
