Photo Diary: The Capital



I went to Manila for my two-week training for the theoretical part of my radar course training (aka work). It's actually good to be back at the training center. Even though the corridors and the classrooms were already renovated, it was still a walk down memory lane. The memories of the old, decrypted hallways of the training center will never ebb in my subconscious thoughts. How could I forget this place? This is where I built my dreams and aspirations in life. Every corner of the building knew how hard I fought to become one of the guiding voices of the sky.

Drama aside, here are some of the snapshots I took during my two-week stay in Manila.

PS: I also made a 90 sec film. It's my first attempt to try cinematography. I know I still have a lot to improve, but I did enjoy filming this clip. Hope you enjoyed it!

Photo Diary: City Lights x Neon Lights



I usually post-process my photos on Adobe Photoshop. Before I bought my new laptop (it's a Macbook Retina Pro 2015 model, and I regret nothing) two months ago, post-processing was a daunting task. Aside from the fact that I edit photos individually, my previous laptop worked very slow that sometimes, it can no longer open Microsoft Word. I can't blame it, the laptop's already seven years old, and the hardware's already outdated. It can no longer catch up with today's technology.

Ever since I installed Adobe Lightroom on my new laptop, post-processing became a breeze. I got hooked on the travel presets. There are so many presets available online, some costs around ten to twenty bucks, but the choices are endless. These Lightroom preset had helped me in curating my Instagram feed.

Welcome to Davao, Uniqlo!



The long wait is over. My favorite apparel store is here in Davao! Uniqlo Philippines finally opens its first store here in Mindanao! In line with their 5th anniversary here in the Philippines, Uniqlo opens more branches in Mindanao - 2 in Davao (SM Lanang Premier and SM City Davao), and 1 in Cagayan de Oro City (SM CDO Downtown Premier). Uniqlo is one of my travel essentials. When I went to Korea last winter, Uniqlo saved my life from the harsh Korean winter.

Anyway, come and visit Uniqlo at SM Lanang Premier this Friday (May 26) and get the chance to win awesome prizes! The first 50 customers will not just receive gifts from Uniqlo, but they'll also shop with Ms. Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015.

Train of Thought: A Beginner's Guide to Southeast and Far East Asia's MRT System



Like Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory, I love trains, well, except for Thomas the Train because I find him creepy. Whenever I travel, I always take the time to ride one. There's something about train rides. I don't know, maybe because we don't have a train system yet in Davao, making it an unfamiliar travel experience to me.

Today, I'm going to share my experiences and a few tips on how to navigate around starting from the simplest MRTs to the most complex system I have experienced.

PHOTO DIARY: Bangkok's Floating Market



Your Bangkok adventure is not complete without visiting their famous floating markets. Centuries ago, the banks of Chao Phraya River became a settlement area. The lives of the villagers depend on the river banks of Chao Phraya. The tributaries and canals were the primary transportation networks during that time. To answer their basic necessities, markets started to proliferate along the river banks. It canals became a center of trade.

As road and rail networks developed in the late 18th century, the villagers started relocating their markets on the ground, forcing some to close indefinitely.

Today, these floating markets still exist and became one of the famous tourist attractions in Thailand. When we visited Damnoen Saduak floating market in Bangkok, there were a lot of tourists, both local and international. I was really amazed by the experience because it felt like I was transported back to time, sans the selfie sticks, cameras, and smartphones.
