Lakwatsero Shirt

I was accompanying  a friend with his year-end shopping when we came across this Lakwatsero shirt from Saplot ni Juan in Greenhills Shopping Center yesterday. I bought the shirt at once and I was to get it for P250.00. I might wear this in one of my trips. 🙂

Weekend Trip to Cebu

Taoist Temple

Weee! I’m going back to Cebu City this weekend for some business. It has been sometime since the last time I went there. I’m excited for my weekend trip. I was hoping I could meet all of my college classmates and blogger friends but the idea seems muri (impossible). I might meet up with some Cebu Bloggers on Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon, after their Sumilon Island trip.

Worldwide Photo Walk


Woot! I’m excited for my first Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk this afternoon. I registered for the Makati leg and it’s a good opportunity for us to take photos. We’re lucky ‘coz we’ll be able to get shooting permits from the Makati authorities. Getting a permit to take photos in the central business district is really difficult so I should maximize the little time they have allocated for us.

We’ll be meeting up at Rada Street in Legaspi Village this afternoon. I don’t know anybody from the pool of photographers participating in the Makati leg. I’m bringing my three lenses for this afternoon’s shoot. I’m excited.

Opening a travel blog

Since when I was in high school, I always find the opportunity to travel and go to other places.  I’ve been to different cities, countries and done a lot of things. Though I blog some of these experiences in my batang yagit blog, most of my trips remain undocumented.  I have lots of back logs to fill.

After I started working five months ago, the opportunity of traveling is being swallowed by my responsibilities. I don’t think I’ll have as much chance of traveling as I had before.  Since I still have lots of back logs to fill, I decided that I should compel myself to write about my travel experiences while waiting for a new one.

What to expect in this blog? I might be featuring different restaurants, foods, resorts, hotes, from different places. Of course, only those which I have experienced.  Expect more posts in the coming days.
