Normally, new year’s resolutions are declared when the year is new. To be honest, I did create a very short list, but I thought I’d wait till after the Chinese New Year. You may ask why. And the simple reason is that I wanted to have more time to think and reflect what aspects of   Read More …

When I was young, my brother and I used to draw on the corners of notebooks. Each page had a slightly different drawing, so that when you flipped the notebook the drawings appeared to be moving. It’s still fun. And you aren’t limited to drawings either; you can also do this with a series of   Read More …

Everyone has seen them. More and more people have them. You know, photos of people who buy a brand new DSLR, get introduced to the world of photography, and inexplicably can’t find a better subject to shoot than themselves in front of a mirror holding a camera up to their face? So, in honor of   Read More …

I apologize for the incredibly long delay. But without further ado, the conclusion… After our mini food-trip around Laoag, we were now back in Balay de Blas. Some of us chose to rest, while playing Monster Hunter, and some of us wanted to…uhm…relieve ourselves. I had gone first, and partly due to the poor ventilation   Read More …

So it’s been two weeks since we came back from our trip, and this post on the last leg of our Northern Exposure trip has just now been written and posted. Man, it’s really different when you’re out there, without a care in the world blogging at night as you wind down your day of   Read More …

This one took a bit of time to write. Actually, it’s starting to write that was the hardest. We had so many places to see, so many things to do, so many laps to swim, and so many food to eat that I just found myself happily exhausted. We arrived in Pagudpud, the third leg   Read More …

Been quite busy having a vacation. Just a quick post on the tigers in Baluarte and the old belltower in Vigan yesterday. We’re in Pagudpud right now in Hannah’s Beach Resort (miss you, Hannah) enjoying the breathtaking scenery. So, in the meantime, here are some more pics from our great adventure. The tiger was pretty   Read More …

Right now, we’re having lunch (some of us, me included, halo-halo) at Mang’s again. A while ago, we were at Baluarte. We had empanada again, and I had papaitan as well. Ever since we got to Vigan, the second destination of our trip, we have been almost nothing but eating. Then we’d take a break   Read More …

We’re currently in Alaminos, the first stop in our trip. The bus ride (P352 incl. insurance) was shorter than expected. We left the Cubao terminal of Victory Liner at 9:00PM. By 1:30AM, we were already at the Alaminos terminal. I’m not sure if it was because it was the middle of the night, or if   Read More …

As I mentioned last time, in a few days me and my buddies are off to our Northern Exposure trip. Since we’ll be travelling by bus, we’re going to be foregoing the luxury of trunk space and instead we’ll have to rely on our backs to carry all our luggage. It’s important nowadays for photographer’s   Read More …
