So I said something about April Fools

Paolo, may utang pa akong tula sa kanya.

VISUAL ARTIST, architect, writer, and poet Sid Gomez Hildawa, 45, passed away on Sunday, March 30, from a virus that led to multiple organ failure. Unconfirmed reports said he succumbed to typhoid and dengue fever.

Mr. Hildawa was the director of the visual, literary, and media arts department of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).

He was recognized twice by The Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards first for his full-length Filipino play Macho Motel in 1997, and for Building a House and Other Poems in 2006. He was also a two-time recipient of the Philippine Free Press Literary Award for poetry; author of Regarding Space, published in 2005 by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts under the "Ubod" First Author Series; and a featured artist in several one-man exhibits.

He was a recipient of the CCP Thirteen Artists Award, a British Council fellow for art and architecture, and a poetry fellow at the University of the Philippines’ National Writers’ Workshop and Iligan National Writers’ Workshop.

Mr. Hildawa’s remains were cremated yesterday, and mourners may pay their respects at the Don Bosco Chapel along Arnaiz Ave. (formerly Pasay Road). - BusinessWorld
