A Lovely Connection: Cecille Yllang Montenegro

My Gift from Cecille Yllang!
My Gift from Cecille Yllang! (1/1)

Hello there everyone,

How is everyone doing during this fine, Lion's Gate day?

I wanted to share a lovely postcard that I got, finally, from our lovely, Filipino World Pulse artist, Cecille Yllang Montenegro. She mailed it in March, but I only just got it a couple of days ago from Japan, where she's currently residing. It was such a lovely, unexpected gift, though. I had forgotten about it since it had taken so long to get here. But I felt so connected to her, and glad to receive it. It brought a smile to my face and I thought about all the trials and tribulations this little gift went through to reach me:-)

This is the meaning of the graphic: here in the Philippines we have a story of mythology about the two gods that represents men and women. "Si MaLAKAS - man at Si Maganda- woman" (the strong and the beautiful). Lakas is not just a word for men but a word for women.

I've had the honor of meeting Cecille when she first joined the forum on December 26, 2016, a month after I joined, and we've been friends every since. You can see her first, introductory post here: https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/yllang/posts/72916

I hope you enjoy her artwork, and my lovely postcard, too!

This is more about this amazing World Pulse member and artist, as well as her amazing work, too:

Hello Dearest Tam,

How are you doing? Yes, it is!

You're welcome.

This is what she wrote on FB about the print, too:
Here in the Philippines we have a story of mythology about the two gods that represents men and women. "Si MaLAKAS - man at Si Maganda- woman " (the Strong and the beautiful). Lakas is not just a word for men but a word for women.

I thought you would appreciate this additional information:-)

Waoh Jill what a lovely card it is. You know what?, if you weren't doing a great job, you wouldn't have been given such a beautiful post card. How I wish I could also received mine too. You know, the role you play in peoples lives you can't see it yourself but others see it. Intact you play a vital role in the lives of all the sisters by encouraging us on what ever task we are doing. What a loving sister you are, you deserve more.
Have a pleasant weekend.
Love you Jill
Gods blessings will continue to rein upon you.

Hello,

This is so sweet Jill, thanks for sharing your joy and the gift you received with us. It is nice to see friendships grow and in an artistic way too, I am very artistic myself and do appreciate art very much. I went back and looked at her first post and she has become very successful in her mission to empower as an artist and of course you are such a delight and very exceptional soul. I enjoyed reading your post and following the trail you provided. It was fun. Thanks.
