shades

I love dogs! Especially big ones who can tackle me to the ground! The St. Bernard is from Baguio. Although I feel a bit bad that he's being used for business, but still, doesn't he look so cool!

Sulyap

This pic was taken in Batasan right after typhoon Ondoy.

GK

This is the Gawad Kalinga Village in Aroroy, Masbate. From afar the houses look like toys especially with their bright colors.

pinkI

I find this little girl's smile very pretty. She's from Gawad Kalinga Aroroy. We should be reminded to smile more often, especially at the beginning of the day. Good morning folks!

Our Father

The Lord's Prayer is one of my favorite parts of the mass. It's the time when everyone, including strangers, get to hold hands in unity. Even better when you're beside your crush!

halo-halo

Halo-halo is one of the most popular dessert in the Philippines. It's a mixture of several ingredients including milk, banana, sago, gulaman, ube, leche flan, ice cream etc. Perfect for the summer or even the rainy season.

judgement

I get that we are all entitled to our own opinions, that we are allowed to express our faith, our beliefs.  But do we really have to judge? Who are we to judge? I have a lot of gay, bisexual friends and most of them are the best people I know. They're smart, kind, generous just like my other straight friends. Some of them are even more religious. So what's the difference? Their sexual preference? What is normal anyway? What is proper? I don't se my gay friends throwing stones at me for liking girls.

I'm not going to start a debate. Let's just all agree to love and stop the hate. To accept everyone for who they are. People are people. On some level we are all the same. Okay?

Lake Sebu Falls

This is one the 7 falls in Lake Sebu. I couldn't get a closer shot because the crashing of the water was just too strong, my poor camera would get wet. So I had to settle for this. hehe.

smile

He's one of RJ's kids in Gawad Kalinga Aroroy, Masbate.

Start your day with a smile guys! Good morning!

undoy

Let's pray that this doesn't happen again.

I think a lot of us are still recovering from the devastating effects of typhoon Ondoy last year. But already the start of the typhoon season is here. Are we ready?

Keep safe everyone!

sand and bamboo


This is where I want to be. Right now. This is the sand bar in Camiguin. I have fond memories of this place.I remember a couple of years back I spent half the day on this mini island on my own, with no one but my book and camera.

What I'd give to be back here, to leave everything behind for just a second, and just dive in or sleep under the summer sun.

spikes

I'm not really sure what kind of flower this is but I think it looks great. I saw it on my way to ADMU HS last summer. The rains are here and it will be more difficult to capture these kinds of moments. But it's okay, the rainy season has something to offer too, it has its own kind of beauty which I hope to capture when I'm not too lazy lounging around in bed.
