These are five-minute sketches I made during my visit in Hanoi, Vietnam on November 23-25, 2017. I had a wonderful stay in the country and would like to share these with you.
Here’s my sketch of the Hoan Kiem Lake and the Tortoise Pagoda
But the highlight of my visit is the boat ride at Tam Coc river, a two-hour drive from Hanoi.
Another sketch of the river while the others were doing the bike tour.
Here are another “five-minute sketches” during my stay in Baguio last November 13-15, 2017 and November 27-28, 2017.
Here is a sketch of “Lolo Dad” with her granddaughter after breakfast at Pines and Country Steaks and Waffles.

A sketch of my colleague-mentor while working at the hotel after breakfast.
The past two months, I was frequently travelling both for work and leisure. Thus, I could not really draw that much and post a lot. However, I managed to make several five-minute sketches. Most were done whenever I get a lull time from my planned activities. I will call these sketches the “five minute” series. The first one I did was when I was in Seoul last August (see: https://pisiong.wordpress.com/2017/08/30/sketches-from-seoul/).
Today, I’m sharing with you several five-minute sketches last October when I was at Tuguegarao City, Cagayan for work.

A year ago, I made this cartoon in response to “cyber-bullying” that had transpired in my Alma-matter after some students tried to get support from the alumni against the burial of the late Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
Flashback Friday: On this day, two years ago, “laglag bala” issue was at its peak so I made this cartoon with a title, “Best Horror Movie!”
After the Punisher’s trip to Japan in which he was able to secure $1B worth of loans for the country, he got another trick on his sleeves. Meet Dirty Harry, his new spokesperson!
While thinking for a costume this Halloween, I wonder if there are “Pinoy characters” worth copying. Then, suddenly these Pinoy characters from Pinoy Komiks came to mind.
This is my tribute to Pinoy Komiks!
Why oh…why… my heart melts whenever you’re near?
But I always fail to say the right words… I just cant overcome my fear!
After being away for two weeks, here’s my first post for this month. “Mga kwentong barebero!”
Who should be the first?
Four years ago, on this day, I made this editorial cartoon with a caption, ““He who wants to catch a BIG FISH, must ALSO start fishing at his OWN POND”.
The fisherman is no longer fishing, but it looks like there is a new fisherman in town wanting to catch the “opposition”.
