A try at pet photography…

A try at pet photography…

Pet photography is not my niche per se, but I’m not closing my doors on this subject. :) So one morning, I decided to practice on our own mini-dachschunds, Lexi (11 weeks) and RiRi (2 years old). RiRi is the mother and Lexi is her son. I took them out in the garden where there … Continue reading

What does it mean to ‘Make It Count’?

This video shows what that statement above means for one guy. His name is Casey Neistat. He and his fellow were asked and commissioned by Nike to answer this question. They spent the budget, travelled the world, came up with this amazing and inspiring experience. What about you, how will you make it count? :) Make It … Continue reading

I Love People: 5,000 Miles, 930 People, 162 Seconds

Here’s another viral video that makes me miss travelling once again and meeting new people from different parts of the world. This guy Benjamin Jenks of adventuresauce.com had a travel dream of hitchhiking around the USA for a year. He wanted to meet people from all walks of life and learn about the world through a … Continue reading

Getting married in a college campus? Possible!

Getting married in a college campus? Possible!

Carol and Ric took several weeks (or months?) searching for their summer wedding venue. The beach wedding option was booted out, a garden wedding in Tagaytay was also considered but eventually didn’t make the cut. I could just imagine how frustrating this could be. But after scouting around the metro and nearby areas, they found … Continue reading

Post-wedding thoughts :)

Post-wedding thoughts :)

There’s no such thing as a perfect wedding. I was “interviewing” the bride, my kaladkarin buddy, my partner-in-crime (?), my good friend since college Kirsteen on her post-wedding thoughts earlier this lunch. We were reviewing what transpired in their wedding, how some things have been screwed up by suppliers and didn’t turn out the way … Continue reading

The Power of Three: 3 Photos, One Story.

The Power of Three: 3 Photos, One Story.

For Zone V Camera Club’ s annual photo exhibit, our club has chosen to go “triptych.” The 3 scenes in each sets of pictures may stand alone but when viewed together present a view that draws the audience one step further or even three steps further. Our exhibit runs at 2/F South Entertainment Wing, SM Mall of Asia from Feb 23-29, 2012. Continue reading

Dwelling Place

Dwelling Place

This shot was taken in Phnom Penh, Cambodia during my backpacking trip in 2011. I used my Nikon with my 12-24mm lens and converted the photo to B&W in Adobe Lightroom. Checkered floors, single rusty bed fill the rooms… The place was eerie silent and it gave me goosebumps when I entered it. I couldn’t image how the … Continue reading

My Awesome Planner for 2012.

My Awesome Planner for 2012.

I’ve long quit collecting stickers for the Starbucks 2012 planner (and collecting calories from their toffee nut latte frappuccino). I’ve decided I won’t join the bandwagon and get pressured buying coffee just to have this planner–which almost everybody else has. ;) But… I got this really Awesome Planner which I think suits me! It’s designed … Continue reading

"I’m not a tourist."

“I’m not a tourist.” “I don’t wear socks with sandals.” “My adventure doesn’t stick to a schedule.” “I stand where empires rose, fell, and rose again.” “I travel for the little details.”  “You’ll never know if you like something until you try.” Here’s my blog’s video for the day featuring G Adventures’ ad campaign. It’s … Continue reading

The Longest Way…

I came across this guy who traveled from China to Germany just by walking, back in 2007. He called this project “The Longest Way“–as it is the longest way from a daydream to a dream. Based on his blog thelongestway.com, he did walk about one third of the initial way, from the first day (of his … Continue reading

Planning my financial budget and opening additional bank and trading accounts for the new year–check! “Dreamboarding” for 2012–that’s next! It’s the last week of the last month … Continue reading
