Buke and Gase live in Manila! (Feb Fest 2014 Part 2.1)

February 20, 2014 - Feb Fest 2014


Another thing I love about attending music festivals is that not only do you get to meet new people (and fellow photographers), you also learn about cool new bands! Meet Buke and Gase, a duo from Brooklyn who uses handmade instruments. Amazing. I highly suggest checking their songs out, you’ll be blown away!

Special thanks to Random Minds Production PH for organizing this festival! T’was great witnessing this phenomenal band from Glasgow!


Rome to Loreto (12 Days in Italia, pt. III)

I’m hopefully going back to Rome in a few weeks (when I finally get my visa) to join the Canonization of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII. Both made such an impact to the Catholic Church which is why they’re both dear to me, Pope John Paul II especially. Since I’ll be able to see the beautiful country of Italy again, I thought I should finish uploading some backlogs from my Italy trip a year ago. This post contains a lot of photos. I felt like cutting them down but remembered how great this day was. I’d like to remember as much as I can. Plus, I don’t know a lot of people who’ve been to Loreto. The journey to that beautiful, beautiful hill town was one of the highlights of my trip. And I’d like to share my experience with you all. Please enjoy the photos under the cut. 🙂 — It was March 23, 2013, a day before the start of Holy Week! (more…)

Snippets (of January and February ’14)

I’m back and that means I’m finally done with college. 🙂

I’ll probably make a separate post specially for that but for now I’ll be posting my backlogs, and there are lots of ’em!

Jan. 27 – I’m an Integrated Marketing Communications student and a class of mine deals with different clients on a weekly basis. One of them was McDonald’s PH. Since it’s such a big account, we of course had to come up with possible ATL executions. One of which is radio. So here we are making a cute popfolk-sy jingle in our makeshift recording studio in school aka the basement parking lot.

Feb. 13 – Sleepovers are common for the students in my course. But on this day we had a sleepover not for academics but because we went out the night before to watch the wonderful musical, Wicked, which ended late at night! Here is Shelly the morning after, studying for our midterms in a few hours. Haha

Feb. 20 – My nephew got 3 new turtles as pets. From left to right, let me introduce you to Einstein, Lincoln, and Louis Pasteur. Nerd and geek genes run in the family, I know.

Feb. 21 – I had a ‘catch up’ lunch with one of my good friends from the lower years, Max. I rarely get to talk or hang with my friends because of the senior workload so I appreciate the short times I get to spend with them.

Feb. 22 – A new baby in the family is born!

Feb. 27 – Welcome to this awesome world, Elaina. Once your vision develops, your googly eyes will forever twinkle at the wonders of the world you’re yet to see!!

Well that was such a short post for two months! To be honest, I wasn’t able to capture much. Stress, physical and mental fatigue have left me uninspired and unwilling to lug my camera around. But on some days I was able to muster enough willpower to actually take pictures. Will be posting those in a while. 🙂

Thanks for viewing this post!

Warpaint live in Manila (FebFest 2014 Part 1.1)

 February 13, 2014

I was fortunate enough to have taken pictures of two of my favorite bands, Tegan and Sara (last November) and now, Warpaint!! Special thanks to Random Minds Productions PH for organizing FebFest 2014 featuring such great artists. Photos of Eyedress and Mogwai will come shortly!

Em, Theresa, Jenny, and Stella were all phenomenal. And what makes them even more awesome is how kind they are! Truly a band I look up to.

I hope you all enjoy these pictures I took of them under the cut!



August 25, 2013

Months ago, my family and I went on an overnight trip at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, Bataan. It’s a sort of resort that tries to preserve historic Filipino homes, hence the “Las Casas” in the name. Houses that are over a hundred years old serve as your accommodation, letting you experience the full thrill of sleeping in a piece of history and the supernatural. Haha, I kid. The whole compound is beautiful, really. But the overcast weather slightly messed up the colors of my shots.

Perhaps I’ll share them someday (it’s such a shame too since the place is a beaut!), but for now here are some snaps from beach side.


A wonderfully simple Sunday

February 2, 2014

What? An update? Well, yes! This is my first post of the year, can you believe it?

I haven’t been able to update in sooo long because of–yes! You guessed it right!–school work. Even during the holidays I was flooded with so many pitches, researches, and papers! 😦 Oh well, at least I was able to get a decent break this weekend (despite having a Saturday class).

My mama went out of town today so I got the whole house to myself, and on such a beautiful day, too! Since I have minimal homework this week I took this opportunity to get back to my reading while snapping a few photos.

Some photos of my sunny day and my nephew pretending he’s a cardboard box robot are waiting under the cut!
