Yay, first blog of 2018! I was supposed to blog about something else, like my shoot for Isidore Watches (which will be coming soon, promise), but… well, I started this year not so great. I started the year questioning a lot of things about my life, like my career, and so many other things. So you know, I just wanted to post something that would make me happy (and hopefully all you readers too ^^). So today’s blog post is…

So October last year, our ninang Malou and ninong Ronald (who are very adventurous :D) invited us to come with them for a weekend trip to Burias, Masbate, courtesy of GoRon Adventures. Rae and I were like, okay, sure. Why not? It had been a while since our last trip anywhere. I think. XD We were going to Korea next month, but local travel? Well, we had been sorely lacking in that department. And had we heard about Burias before?…

So, this was way back in 2011, during Holy Week I think. Yeah, I already said the 2011 part in the title. XD Anyway, so, before anything else, here’s some advice for you kids… and well, for pretty much everyone in general: when you get a free trip like this (my parents paid for me and my siblings, yay XD), don’t be all jaded like I was. To be fair to me, this trip was on a guided tour basis,…

Well, it has been a while since I posted anything on this blog! Haha. XD And because it’s rainy, I felt like going down on a trip to memory lane, and posting our Shanghai trip last 2014. Rae booked these tickets on whim. Well, that, and because it was only $160-ish(!!!) for the two of us, round trip. Awesome right ? 😀 But wait, there’s more! Our hotel in Shanghai was only less than $120 for 4 nights! So cheap!…

Behind the scenes of our Metro Weddings shoot XD


So, we did this for Metro Weddings’ latest issue: But this couldn’t have happened without us all having fun… and have fun we did. XD Just ’cause it’s fun, here are some behind the scenes photos.

XD Sam hides under her umbrella during a test shot for 2 reasons: to avoid the sun, and to promote the World Wildlife Fund. XD Hairstylist Archie…

We got stuck in the sand at Bangui Windmills! @_@


Hey! How are you guys? XD Been so busy these past few months that I have not had time to blog. ARGH. That’s so hard when it’s supposed to be part of my job too. Haha. XD Anyway, so sharing a recent experience last month, when Rae and I were in Ilocos Norte with our clients Vince and Michelle to shoot their prenup. After we got our long-awaited soft biscocho at Pasuquin (long story XD) we arrived at Bangui to…

Thoughts about cliff-diving at Salagdoong Beach, Siquijor


Cliff-diving (or cliff jumping rather, because I don’t know how to dive) has never really been on my bucket list… oh wait, I don’t have a bucket list. XD To put it simply, I never really thought about jumping off a cliff until I was actually there in Salagdoong Beach and I saw a bunch of people jumping off the cliff. If you were at the beach, and kind of far away, you would think that the drop wasn’t that…
