Gulugod Baboy (translates to Pig Spine) is a local term for the mountain located in Anilao, Batangas. Locals said that it is called this way because of its contour shape. I already climbed this mountain 3 times with different sets of people. Every climb offers a different experience. It is a relatively easy climb taking just almost 2 hours to reach its peak. The view from the top is great - you have a 360 degree view of Anilao, Batangas Pier, Maricaban Island and other mountains.

To go here from Metro Manila, just ride a bus going to Batangas Pier. Get off the bus in Mabini and arrange a transport going to Anilao. There would be many Jeepneys (local public transport) going there since Anilao is a regular diving spot for divers. This is an ideal weekend getaway for adventure seekers like me. You can climb the mountain on your 1st day and camp at the peak at night. Early morning the next day, you can go down directly to the resorts in the area for some swimming, snorkeling or just plain sun bathing. It’s like hitting two birds in one stone as they say!
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

In this article, I'll show you the usual route I take whenever I walk through the streets of Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong, this time in preparation for making a puppet called Mr. Golden.

Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
