I am Cj de Silva. Some might recognize me as the Promil Kid. I love to paint and illustrate. Advertising is not just a day job for me. Film, moving pictures and music are my escapes.

"Baby It’ll Be Alright" by Ryan Lerman is my new favorite song. Not in a current favorite song kind of way, but I think this song will be in my all-time list. I literally teared up when I listened to it while reading its lyrics. Especially this line. (Lettering by me!) #ryanlerman #music #lettering #typography #handpainted #art

I decided to re-record “Sabi Na Nga Ba”, an original song by my good friend @glentiopez

I was in Sound Cloud listening to my friend’s new song. I got a notification on my own track that got me going over my uploads. I realized everything in my Sound Cloud were from three years ago. I was 23 back then. I had the youthful audacity to learn the guitar, record using my laptop mic and mixed everything in Garage Band. I didn’t care if the final mix had some ambient sound of either a tricycle or jeepney passing by. I was somehow proud of it.

But for some reason, I have shied away from my noctural hobby of learning songs and recording them. I don’t know if it’s because life distracted me. Or it is because I grew older and lost my spunk. So I listened again to all the songs I covered and decided to record and remix one track, “Sabi Na Nga Ba“, an original song by my good friend, Glen Tiopez.

Now, I recorded by voice using Wincy’s spiffy microphone, properly mixed by my husband as well. And I feel that my voice aged a little, which I liked.

This year, I promise myself I’d pick up that guitar, learn a new song and sing again.
