Good or bad, as the French would say : "C'est la vie!" (trans. "That's life!") and so shall we embrace it!

Up & Around : Decisive Moments Basic Photography Workshop

“Wow, that’s a great picture! What’s the brand of your camera?”

This is a clear insult.

One of the things I learned from our instructor of basic photography. He elaborated by saying that the quality or greatness of a photo comes from the eyes and skills of the photographer and not through the brand of the camera. It would be an insult to suggest that the equipment is what makes a photographer. (more…)

VolunTourism / Getaway High : Jomalig Island

Sun, Sand, Sea & Smiles

A weekend well spent giving back to the children of Jomalig Island.

In the wee hours of the night, my family and I wandered the silent street heading to the port in Real, Quezon; searching in the dark for the boat that would take us to the promised unspoiled beaches of Jomalig Island. In this 9 hour quest involving land vehicles and a fisherman courier boat, we wanted to set our sights on this majestic place in hopes to help promote the sluggish if not uncertain tourism of the community. Same as what other backpackers have been doing on their way to this lesser known sweet spot to bask in its beauty but this time, our journey was a different one. We were en route to not only help promote, as bloggers, the tourism of this island but to also share a few blessings to the less fortunate children of the community.

VolunTourism – this is what the idea revolved around when our event head blogger Jungie invited us to join this project. Gathering sponsors to help fund this like NutriAsia along with volunteers and 4 other bloggers, we were all determined to go in, see the beauty of this place, give back to the community and leave with an untainted impression that big or small, all efforts to extend a helping hand are merited. That literally anyone can bring joy to a remote community far from the comfortable lifestyle of mainlanders and to spread the word of what others are missing out on.

And so we set sail…
