Hi, I am Jyppe Alqui. Thank you for visiting jyppe.com™ – my personal lifestyle blog and a place to talk about anything I wanted to share.
I am a multidisciplinary visual artist who blends aesthetics into a happy, healthy and wealthy lifestyle.
Making display props, setting up floor and window display, designing effective print designs – ranging from a small signage to a large vinyl wrap, doing product photography and maintenance of the visual impact of the company where I was working with for nine years.
Some of the popular brands in Asia I have worked with are Canon, Nikon, Tefal, Pepsi, and Milo.
I hold a Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in Mathematics from Davao del Norte State College, Panabo City, Philippines with five different Leadership Awards, received during graduation, and I am continuing my self-study on Photography, Videography, Copywriting, Sales, Marketing and Entrepreneurship.
I had a plan of taking a Masters Degree but it is not realize until now since I have to work for living – for both my personal and family’s needs. Aside from that, I also have a dream of having an ‘educreational site’ where I can showcase my creativeness for both educational and recreational purposes.
In September 2016, I resign from my job in Brunei, went back to the my homestead in the Philippine, and started working as freelance visual artist.
I love collecting metal souvenir key chain, Lego and miniature toys. I am also an occasional traveler. In fact, I post about my travels on this blog.

I started entering the blogosphere in 2009 and after a year I have created many blogs as effect of my excitement in blogging until I have found my niche after few months of hopping from one blogging platform to another and writing anything and everything under the sun which I felt good talking about.
Though I have a little regret of having not a very good start in blogging, my learning from that experience is already a very good pay-off, and now I have the joy to maintain this blog, and other few blogs I have.
