I saw this photo while I was browsing YowaYowa’s blog. It reminded me of a shoot we did a couple of years ago in Sagami Ono, and made me think could this be on the same line of tracks we shot on or if it was in a completely different part of Japan? It looks   Read More …

Last February 1, Gina Lopez, the Managing Director of ABS-CBN Foundation, launched a signature campaign to save Palawan from both illegal and legally-questionable (allegedly, some politician’s hands were greased to approve the mining contracts) mining activities in Palawan. The goal is noble, and the ideals are lofty. Indeed, that which they are fighting for is   Read More …

Last week, I had a toy shoot for some Castlevania toys that were going up for sale. The shoot was pretty straightforward, and all I needed was one off-camera strobe and a shoot-through umbrella. I initially planned to use my DIY macro studio, but it was too small for these action figures, and the ration   Read More …

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.

So, in honor of   Read More …

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 …
