Sunday Quote and Photograph: When Disposable Plastic Cups Took My Breath Away

As I step in Café Cesario at the Cebu-Mactan International Airport to have a quick breakfast before our flight back after a weekend trip, something caught my attention.



In spite of my hunger, sleepy/heavy head caused by trying to catch an early morning flight, I can’t help but pause from my quick breakfast, stood up from my table and examine this piece that is hanging above the central ceiling of the café.

Obviously it's a Christmas decoration but what caught my attention is how and what material it is made of.  It is made from disposable plastic cups and its craftsmanship really took my breath away. 

My camera did not even give justice to this awesome piece but just the same I want to share it with you and so do with this quotation that I chanced upon…
“And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans—and all that lives and move upon them.  He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused – and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself”. ~Sigrid Undset~


  1. Excellent quote, something to reflect this festive holiday. Merry Christmas and God bless!

  2. Ang husay naman ng nag-isip ng decor na yan

  3. Very creative talaga. Wow. Very nice poem of Sigrid. I believe she is a norwegian. :)

  4. Honestly we have this creative mind, but for some reason it is being used for something else. Not just creative mind, Filipinos are simply smart and bright. Anyway I'm proud of whoever created that decor..such an amazing talent!

  5. Oh wow it's almost Christmas already. I didn't even realize it.

  6. paandar ang mga lobo ha... very bright ang nakaisip!
