Macrography: This Snail

Saturday, December 21, 2013


Hey !


I’ll treat you to lunch of sosi escargot if you can tell me where this snail’s eyes are located!



Little John’s, Baguio

Friday, December 6, 2013




My new favorite spot is a hole-in-the-John Hay-wall that I've been passing by countless times while around the Commissary.  Why I decided to check this place out just now is beyond me. All i know is I've missed a whole lot. I can spend the rest of my day here in this exact spot, reading, writing, wasting time, soul-searching yeah hehe, staring outside while having my nth cup.


And oh, my search for the bestest tocino ended here. Happiness found. :) 



Back in Baguio

Tuesday, December 3, 2013


Arrived too early with an upset stomach. Want to visit my favorite Jollibee branch (who's supposedly operating for 24 hrs!) and found it's still closed. Had to go back up the cathedral with my thousand-pound bag and wait ‘til the sun wakes up. And when he finally did,  had to go back down for my breakfast, upset stomach and all. This is bad.  Decided to visit Burnham and maybe have my morning coffee while waiting for the ukays to open. Passed by the stadium and this sunshine.  Had to stop and take a shot. Told myself "it's going to be ok."


Old things, new eyes. Thanks for the cold warm welcome, Baguio!



Mt. Tapyas Cross before Yolanda

Tuesday, November 12, 2013


My prayers and thoughts to the devastated and suffering on all parts of Pilipinas.  We're all in this together.


Of course we will rise again. We are, afterall, Pinoys. Nobody and nothing can ever destroy our spirits.



Baguio City

Tuesday, November 5, 2013


Dear B,


So Greece has its colorful island houses in Parga. Well, we have this crowded mountain full of colorful houses in Baguio City. That’s part of the charm. :) No matter what they say, I’ll keep coming back.


See you soon and your mysterious mists, my dear B.



Roof Deck, Microtel Mall Of Asia

Thursday, October 31, 2013




I leaned into the railing, look at that ship and felt like I was somewhere else. It seems to be floating.


Felt like I was literally at the edge of the globe.


*Snap* That’s our Manila Bay, viewed from the roof deck of Microtel MOA. :)



Mt. Tapyas Hotel, Coron

Monday, October 28, 2013




Of course not! This isn’t part of the French Riviera! This is the view from Mt. Tapyas Hotel’s Bar and Resto somewhere in Coron.


Nice no?! Hehe.



Saud, Pagudpud

Sunday, October 27, 2013


Oh how i miss them beaches and the soft crashing waves. How i miss my rockin' seastars and beautiful seaglasses. And how i miss my hand-painted majestic skies at nightfalll!


Beach calling... :)



Macrography: The Red Dragon

Monday, October 21, 2013




“The closer I get to you
The more you make me see”


Love getting close to a red dragonfly. For one, he looks geeky, with his big eyes and all. Second, his colors are pretty. Third, he's rare. I may never see him again.

Dear Bohol,


You may be broken now, but like all heartaches and tragedies, this too shall pass. You’ll always be beautiful.



Taal Volcano in Monochrome

Saturday, October 12, 2013


Hey !


Taken 6 years ago. Just experimenting with the tones and all. I always knew that Tagaytay is poetic in the mists. But I never thought it would be THIS poetic in monochrome.

Baguio City Clouds

Tuesday, October 8, 2013




Sometimes, before sunset, the cloud gods come down the hills of Baguio City.  They look like they're about to eat the entire town, but the soft pink tinge is so pretty against the blue skies,  making them look like giant fluffy cotton candies!



View from Sta.Monica Ranch, Puerto Princesa

Sunday, October 6, 2013


Hi there busy one,


If you can't stop and smell the roses, at least enjoy this breathtaking view. Please, please savor the greens and the blues.


You must go here sometime. :) Awesome place.




Baler, Aurora

Wednesday, October 2, 2013


After days of grays and whites, the skies finally opened up and showed some colors.  To some,  when the sun begins to set, they start to call it a day.  To some, evening's about to begin. 


Now when the skies finally start to show some colors, to some,  this is when the magic happens. 



God rays of Manila Bay

Sunday, September 29, 2013


Hello !


You've been working so darn hard, can you turn away from that PC for a while and come with me? Let me take you here. Somewhere in Manila where the sun sets slowly. Where the crepuscular rays are  spectacular and the sunset is, as always, incomparable. This lady over here, all she need is her bike. And a few minutes.



Window Seat, Above the Clouds

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Keep dreaming about clouds... Me above the clouds. Me and the sea of clouds and the warm sunshine. And someone's calling me... no, something's calling me. I realized it was... Pulag? Oh no!


Macrography: Flower Parts

Wednesday, September 18, 2013




Somewhere in there is the pistil. Remember that flower part? Don’t know which exactly it is, feel free to figure. :) Just want to mention it because I miss that word. Pistil. And stamen. So old school.



Abra de Ilog, Mindoro

Monday, September 16, 2013




Abra de Ilog is a simple and sleepy town somewhere in Occidental Mindoro, where everything looks otherworldly as the sun bursts every morning, bathing everything in soft tangerine.



Mt.Pinatubo, Zambales

Thursday, September 12, 2013


It’s always fun to bring along someone that fits just right in your pocket. He/she is your cute companion who willingly becomes your model at a moment’s notice. Here’s Gingy,looking so adorably

delighted as he looks over the scenic Mt. Pinatubo crater lake.



Purple Skies of Saud, Pagudpud

Tuesday, September 10, 2013




One happy morning in Saud, the skies turned purplish! It was one of the prettiest skies I’ve ever experienced (and captured). Ain’t she pretty? So relaxing, so lush. Me wonders if you saw it too. We are, after all, just under the same magnificent skies!
