Make A Wave Program

     Druoun X Images is proud to present to you the Make A Wave Program, a project initiated by DXI's founder - Matthew Chua. The aforementioned project is a photo-manipulation tutorial / socio-civic involvement training, which will take effect for one and a half-month intensive session. The program was developed with three basic principles - Learning, Sharing, and Serving.
 
     Make A Wave Program has been conceptualized last December 2010 and after a month-long period of conceptualization, Matthew did release the logo (photo above) followed by the release of the first date of the tutorial session entitled "Wave 1" (photo below).

     "Wave 1", the pioneering series of Make A Wave Program, starts this coming Saturday (Feb 5). Everything is ready (including the three students) and all exciting lessons are set to be revealed from day 1 to the last day of the program.

"Learn the basics...
...Share the blessing...
...Serve the people"

Make A Wave Program aims to: 
  • Teach different photo-manipulating techniques.
  • Enhance creativity and imagination.
  • Teach basic principles of leadership.
  • Develop the passion to share and to serve the community.
Note: Make A Wave Program has been developed to be the model project of ALA-International (Artists for Leadership and Advocacy International) in order for members to gain idea in how they can make use of their God-given talent in becoming part of the solution of the society that they're part of.

Stay tuned for more updates about this program. Soon...

Christmas Means?


     What is the real essence of Christmas? Why are we celebrating it? Is it to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ? or... Is it to remember Santa Claus? 

     Why are we so excited for Christmas every time we reach the "ber month"? Is it because of Santa's gifts? or... Is it because it reminds us how God sent his only begotten son? Thinking once? Thinking twice? Well, we should be thinking thrice as we try to evaluate ourselves on how we define Christmas. 

     Well, we were once kids and all we knew about Christmas back then (possibly until now) was about being good in order to receive gifts from Santa. We can't blame ourselves for having such a misconception because good old Santa has been emphasized throughout the ages, which made him more popular than the birth of Christ. It seems like each year (December) became a battle between fantasy and faith - a battle of popularity and authenticity amongst people. And it is a challenge for us to educate ourselves and to educate others about the real meaning of Christmas - the birth of Jesus Christ in order for him to experience death and for us to be saved from our sins. 

Let's all transform GREAT DREAMERS into TRUE BELIEVERS! Go on... spread the message!

World AIDS Day 2010


     December 1 is here again. It signals the start of the month of December (the much awaited month of the year). But did you know that this particular date has a much deeper meaning? Yes, it truly has. Just to give you a quick information, December 1 was actually declared as the "WORLD AIDS DAY" in order to remind the public about its harmful cause and effects to the society.

     This year's theme of DXI emphasizes the should-be common knowledge of everyone - AIDS KILLS. Language should not be a hindrance in delivering the message across the globe because no matter where we live and what language we use, AIDS is still AIDS.
It spreads... it infects... it kills!

     Let's all spread this simple yet striking concept of DXI. Remember, AIDS should not be taken lightly because it destroys the life, hope and future of everyone.

Blog Action Day 2010

Some thoughts to ponder:

1. Unsafe drinking water and lack of sanitation kills more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Unclean drinking water can incubate some pretty scary diseases, like E. coli, salmonella, cholera and hepatitis A. Given that bouquet of bacteria, it's no surprise that water, or rather lack thereof, causes 42,000 deaths each week.

2. More people have access to a cell phone than to a toilet. Today, 2.5 billion people lack access to toilets. This means that sewage spills into rivers and streams, contaminating drinking water and causing disease.

3. Every day, women and children in Africa walk a combined total of 109 million hours to get water. They do this while carrying cisterns weighing around 40 pounds when filled in order to gather water that, in many cases, is still polluted. Aside from putting a great deal of strain on their bodies, walking such long distances keeps children out of school and women away from other endeavors that can help improve the quality of life in their communities.

4. It takes 6.3 gallons of water to produce just one hamburger. That 6.3 gallons covers everything from watering the wheat for the bun and providing water for the cow to cooking the patty and baking the bun. And that's just one meal! It would take over 184 billion gallons of water to make just one hamburger for every person in the United States.

5. The average American uses 159 gallons of water every day – more than 15 times the average person in the developing world. From showering and washing our hands to watering our lawns and washing our cars, Americans use a lot of water. To put things into perspective, the average five-minute shower will use about 10 gallons of water. Now imagine using that same amount to bathe, wash your clothes, cook your meals and quench your thirst.

Encouragement

     When was the last time that we were encouraged to do something worthwhile? When was the last time that we have encouraged other people to continue what they've started and to finish the remaining chapters of the dream that their pursuing?

     If none, then this post shall remind you to encourage them because encouraging someone isn't just words being given by people. Those words would really mean a lot and would change the way they think and the way they would handle things in times of difficulties. Just to make it simpler - encouragement would change their lives forever!

   One would need to be equipped with PASSION, DETERMINATION, EXCELLENCE, and DEDICATION for him/her to achieve what he/she desires to accomplish. But there are times that a person would feel empty because of the lack SELF-MOTIVATION and that's the perfect time for someone to ENCOURAGE that person for him/her to move forward and to continue the battle that was destined to be finished in a very triumphant way. 


     The photo (above) has been created by DXI founder, Matthew S. Chua, as a birthday present to Ms. Maria Lolita Musni or simply known as Lot. Today's her 21th birthday and she deserves to celebrate this very special day with a positive mind and a passionate heart for he to reach her ultimate goals in life.

Earth Day 2010: Go Earth, Go Green!

     Earth Day 2010 is here! Have you done your part in caring for this planet? If not, then please act now. Remember that this planet is our home and our source of life. So please be responsible enough because God gave us the task on taking care of the home that he built for us.  I won't expand much on the topic because the image (below) that I made speaks louder than my writings.
