About

Hi! I’m C5 and I’m the author behind ceefive.com. My nickname existed even before the famous road in Taguig, Philippines. My name starts with a ‘C’ and my surname is the Spanish for five.

I started blogging in 2007 using a different blog which no longer exists. I did because I’ve been lurking the net since 1994 and I write better than I speak. (I used to have 3 dozen TLD blogs but had to give them all up when online income can no longer sustain them.)

Many things interest me and oftentimes I think of different things at the same time. More often than not, though, they just stay in my mind or I forget about them simply because I did not make the necessary notes for them to linger.

Generally, I like creating things with my hands. I knit, crochet, tat, weave, cut, etc.

I also love puzzles like cryptograms and crosswords. I also used to create my own codes (for coded messages).

As for food, my tongue can enjoy something bitter (black coffee, dark chocolate, bitter gourd) and spicy (anything with red hot chili peppers).

I love archery, bowling, and hiking, but it’s been a long time since I’ve done any of those.

My listening pleasure is classical. My favorite piece on piano is Liebestraume by Franz Liszt, and my favorite on classical guitar is Cavatina by John Williams. I have no favorite song. I been part of the Church choir since the 80s (soprano then, alto now) but I memorize no piece. I always have to look at the music sheet for guide (often for the right tune and timing).

As an income generator, I ghost write from time to time, hand knit socks, crochet hats, tat bracelets, etc. (I am open for business but definitely not between Friday sunset and Saturday sunset, as I am a Sabbatarian.)
