June's Farm

1

Mountain scene, great-looking parish church, hang out or chill bar... all in one place!

Dao, Capiz is located somewhere in the northern part of Panay. After our happy campers club camp, some friends including I managed to visit June, a friend who is about to get married.

Visiting Dao is a new thing for me (except maybe if we’re on our way to Boracay, we always pass by this place). So I decided to give it a shot. The first thing I really liked about June’s farm is that their place includes a nice parish church. Built in a “modern” way, it provides local and townspeople blessing from the hands of the priests. Aside from that, wedding reception can always take place over the St. Joseph’s Center. The good thing about June’s place is that when you move over at the back of his house, there’s a little hill where you can view some scenery and relax if you want too.

Now here comes the greatest part! Relaxing over the mountain is such a nice thing to do especially during those long afternoon hours but it does really stop when night time comes especially if you don’t like waiting for a shooting star to pass by. What comes next is you head over the Poblacion (or somewhere around their town plaza) and chill in “hang out or chill” bar. Folks told me that the owner is a German guy but he’s not there and the people running the place is the German guy’s wife (a Filipina, of course).

We laughed the night we spent over the “hang out or chill” and made our way back to June’s place. While they were sleeping, I sneaked out and went uphill. Lying down was the best part. Why? I can wait for that shooting star to pass me by. Wishes, here they come!

    Bite-Size Fiction: Spectre

    Ever since she started working late hours Tammy had inevitably acquired the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night, doing nothing but catch up on her favorite websites, eat, and watch television. When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    I like taking pictures of everyday things I find in ordinary places. Taking close-up pictures of them makes them look more interesting. A spoonful of candies or a small necklace looks more interesting and fun up close.
