1/4 lang sa dugo ko,Kasi ang great grandfather ko ay nakapag asawa ng dogong
balangao, sa mother side ko.

E sa Father side ko naman ay dogong Kankana-ey at Apla-ay bontok naman.

Kaya ay ako ay isang Hybrid na, kasi nag halo na ang dogo ko.

Maski ika'y halong dugo ng iba't-ibang katutubo, ika'y lahi ng bundok :) at yun ay malakas sa iyo

Ako din ay isang halo-halo sa dugo, ay yun ay naka tulong sa akin na makipagsapalaran sa iba't-ibang lahi, tribo at bayan dito sa Pilipinas

this series has a more modern touch into it, does it?

The costumes represents the traditional Philippine ethnic costumes as authentically as I could, and I cannot deviate from the patterns

You see I have worked in anthropology before and lived with several of these ethnic groups and have been adopted by some, hence I cannot 'modernize' their looks :)

But the metallic pen do give the modern feel to the series
