  • Intramuros

    Formerly the infamous prison for rebels and dissidents during the old times, the walled city of Intramuros, the "city within a city", has withstood the test of time and still remains majestic as ever. Some of its splendor is lost due to urbanization not to mention the series of bombings experienced during the Second World War but it still retains its old worldly charm. Some of the moats and gates of old still stand while one of the many torture chambers has been converted to a coffee shop. How's that for ingenuity? For a tourist, a visit to Manila would be incomplete without at least a visit to the walled city. It is located near the Pasig River and most jeeps going to Quiapo will pass by there.
  • Bahay Nakpil-Bautista & The Boix House: Colonial Homes of Bautista Street

    Bahay Nakpil-Bautista & The Boix House: Colonial Homes of Bautista Street
    On the tamer side of Quezon Boulevard, the echoes of colonial domesticity and fortune still linger within the old homes of Quiapo. While many have suffered the slow death of neglect and the doom of uncaring government-sanctioned demolitions, some domiciles prove to be heritage conservation successes amidst the raucous of jeepneys, fruit vendors, political rhetoric and hawkers of bootlegged videos that clog the narrow streets that were once the most beautiful in all of Manila.
  • Let's Take a Stroll at the Manila Chinese Garden

    Let's Take a Stroll at the Manila Chinese Garden
    Do you want to see what the Chinese people have to offer in terms of architecture without having to literally fly all the way to China? If so, then visit the Chinese Garden located in Manila, right beside Luneta Park. But in the meantime, go through this post to see a sneak peek of it.
  • An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands
    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
  • Kids Rule Where?

    Kids Rule Where?
    Kids rule where? I was intrigued as I stumbled upon this slogan so I immediately checked out their website, looked for their location and go there for a shoot.
  • Grand Metro Auto Fest 2010

    The Grand Metro Auto Fest presented by the Girl Racers Club, Monster Radio RX 93.1, Slimmers World, and Xenon Bulbs was held at the Megatent Hall, Ortigas Center on Sept. 11, 2010. There was also an Inter-Collegiate Streetdance Competition held at the event. This is probably the fourth Grand Metro Auto Fest while the streetdance competition is on its ninth year.
  • Escolta Museum at Calvo Building

    Escolta Museum at Calvo Building
    Walking down turn-of-the-century Escolta was like a stroll though today's happening Bonifacio High Street or Eastwood City, where commerce and culture thrived as Manila embraced, willingly or otherwise, the 20th century. Elegantly dressed residents regularly visited this street to visit the numerous boutiques, shops and department stores that sold the latest clothes, cigars, jewelries and other fineries. Automobiles, horse-drawn carriages and Meralco tranvias (tramcars) shuttled them through this beautiful street. Indeed, it was "the" place to be seen.
  • Traveling Back in Time in Intramuros

    Traveling Back in Time in Intramuros
    Intramuros is a district in Manila, Philippines where structures built hundreds of years ago still stand. Visiting Intramuros is like going back in time, with the old, weathered walls that once stood as a fort tell plenty of stories and ooze of culture.
  • Residencia del Riego: Night Swim Fun!

    Found in Alitagtag, Batangas, this quaint resort provides a quick getaway for Manileños like me. Read on to find out more.
  • A Short Trip to Binondo, Manila’s Chinatown (Or the Day We Craved for Frog Legs!)

    A Short Trip to Binondo, Manila’s Chinatown (Or the Day We Craved for Frog Legs!)
    Every country has its own version of Chinatown, and the Philippines is no exception. Last weekend, my friend and I went to Binondo (Manila’s Chinatown District) to satisfy our gastronomic cravings.
  • Punta Fuego

    Punta Fuego
    Looking for a place to relax and unwind? Get out of the city and rest somewhere in Batangas, Philippines! Batangas is the HUB for those who want to beat the heat of the sun during summer. Hence, go there during the summer days or when you just feel the need to. Or a Lomo shoot perhaps. I stayed there a couple of times and I always enjoy taking memories with me through my Holga. I give the sceneries and the amenities 5 out of 5. The best shots I had with my Holga were captured at Punta Fuego, Batangas. It is located at the tip most part of Batangas and it is around 3 to 4 hours travel by land from the metro.
  • Clark Field

    Clark Field
    Last weekend, I had a chance to take some time to shoot at the open exhibit located at Clark Airbase. This place played a vital role during the world war. It is an airbase of the Filipino and American soldiers who sacrificed their lives for my country, the Philippines. Too bad it was raining when I had the shoot. I really wasn't able to capture all the things I wanted to.
  • Luneta Park

    Luneta Park
    Unfairly labelled as a make out haven for lovers, Luneta is one of the most important places in Philippine history. One can't help but feel a sense of nationalism as you step into the park. The Rizal Monument signifies the exact location where the national hero was shot on the road to the country's independence. On a more positive note, it is a photographic haven with its harmonious mix of playgrounds, orchidariums and picnic areas. Wait for dusk and see the most magnificent sunset you'll see by the bay. All you need to do is to ride a Jeepney or a bus going to Quiapo and go down there itself.
  • Jeepney

    There is no other transportation in the Philippines as ubiquitous as the Philippine jeepney. A hybrid of the American jeep, the Philippine jeepney came around the 1950's to fill in the need for mass transport. From the basic grayish silver color to fully "pimped out" complete with stereo blaring and disco lights inside, the jeepney is a sight to see! The jeepney by far, is the most useful, and most affordable means of mass transport found all over the country. Every jeepney has different routes, depending on the location, and has more access than the usual bus routes. Minimum fare is $0.15, but goes higher depending how far along the route you go, and it usually seats around 10 to 20 passengers, depending on its size and make. It can be flagged down wherever and whenever, on a busy street. Once you're inside, just hand over your fare to the driver - if you have change, the driver can multitask! He can count change, manoeuvre his way around traffic, pick up passengers - all by himself! Majority of jeepneys has no air-conditioning, and be prepared to get your hair messed up, or to even get sweaty as you experience the ride. It is truly a unique experience, only in the Philippines.
  • Ilustrado Restaurant

    Ilustrado Restaurant
    This place is a nice restaurant with tasteful recipes for everyone. It has a nice ambiance and an elegant colour theme of black, red and white. Lots of mirrors make it good for mirror shots for your OSCM. The cosy and laid back atmosphere makes it a good place to relax while enjoying your tasteful retreat! Yummy Filipino dishes are served with some non traditional twists.
  • Plaza Dilao

    Plaza Dilao
    Back when Christianity was outlawed in Japan Boat loads of refugees were taken in by the various Catholic groups in the 1600's. Most of these Persecuted Christians lived around the area known today as Paco, Manila. During the time of the Spanish occupation Paco was known as Plaza Dilao or Yellow Plaza. This was attributed to either the skin tone of most residents during the time or a plant that was abundant in the area. A statue of Dom Justo Takayama stands
  • White Beach (Torrijos, Marinduque)

    White Beach (Torrijos, Marinduque)
    Traveling to the island province of Marinduque during the Holy Week was a test of patience. But rewards are abound. The stretch of white sand beach of Poctoy is proof to that. The privacy of a beach cove was perfect for sleeping right at the shore. The following day was excellent for getting a tan, playing beach volley, throwing Frisbee or just take a dip!
  • Philippine Tricycle

    Philippine Tricycle
    We all know (well most people) that the quintessential Philippine way of getting around is with the legendary Jeepney. However it is unavoidable that in some cases that we would need to go someplace that won't have the luxury of space. We would require something a little more compact which is what the Philippine tricycle is all about. It is basically a cheap motorcycle (in same cases just a bicycle) welded with an aluminium sidecar.
  • Eyespotting Borawan Island

    Eyespotting Borawan Island
    In the small, rural town of Padre Burgos in Quezon Province, one can find an island getaway, unknown to many, called Borawan. The name itself was coined from the popular Boracay Beach and Palawan. As the locals and some reviews would say, this small side beach haven is a combination of both.
  • Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife

    Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife
    Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife is an ecological sanctuary within the city. It has mini zoo, lagoon, amphitheater, fishing village and vast areas of greenery's. This is my personal favorite spot to take pictures. The relaxing atmosphere and the serene manmade lake are just the extras. It has an enormous park land area hence there are plenty of sceneries to choose from. Great place to go for picnic and test your new rolls of film and cameras nevertheless.
