‎2010 is indeed a cat year

‎2010 is indeed a cat year!

the year started really well as i finally got the time and attended a photography workshop... to take better pictures of course and to learn how to use DSLR properly hahaha.... tho am not sure if my mentors will be happy with me coz some of my photos still are amateurish oh well... but at least i were able to use whatever knowledge i learned for a good cause when a colleague asked me to be one of the official photographer in an outreach program... thankful for the opportunity and to be able to help in my own little way.

i also get a chance to put what i learned at the workshop when i 'discovered' that Makati have the Caracol Festival, and i realized i love shooting such festivities and i wish i'd get a chance to capture all the local feasts such as the ati-atihan, masskara, etc.

though 2010 has been a great year, February has brought many deaths in the family and we travelled back and forth in Batangas to lay to rest a close relative.  just barely days after the burial, an aunt died who lives in Mindoro and we had to go there as well... which is kind of good in a way to revisit the province that held so many childhood memories especially summertime... now i rarely visit there and only get the chance either that there's a wedding or a funeral.

it seems that 2010 has been a travel year for me... aside from the planned and unplanned trips i had lined up, work has required me to be at Clark, Subic, and Bataan a couple of times all throughout march and early april, hence the lack of posts (yeah i am making excuses because as much as i love traveling i realized that it can be tiring too!) one of the unexpected trips i had is a spur of the moment tagaytay roadtrip and it was the first time i tried zip line :)

aside from learning at FPPF i got to meet new people who shares the same passion with me - photography. my group "Team Maninilip" even had a roadtrip/photowalk at Batangas and tagaytay area sometime last March and it was a really nice experience doing a photoshoot with a group

i had the most awesome summer adventure which started off at Boracay with a side trip to Romblon! that was quite an experience and i'm still nagging myself why i still dont have a proper blog post of it!

and just a few hours after arriving in Manila from Romblon, i have embarked on my great north bound experience to Sagada on a Holy Week. If there is one place that i have visited in the Philippines that i would recommend you visit - it will be Sagada.

you cant say you have spelunk your ass if you haven't tried the cave connection of Sumaguing and Lumiang Cave in Sagada!

this year has been an eye opener as well when Sidney invited me to join him and other bloggers in a photowalk at "happy land".  you can help these kids through Project Pearl.

last May i finally had a chance to see Pahiyas Festival in Lukban Quezon and get to ogle at the colorful decorated houses and taste lukban langonisa and pansit habhab.  lots of things to celebrate this year including the recent marriage of one of my CHIPS gurls.

a lot to be thankful for and still so many place to visit so little time... and i thought i'm a certified beach addict but a nice dip in a pool with a serene place and a wonderful company can really make a big difference.

and i guess i fell in love with Cebu as i found myself once again at the Queen City, sky walking and whatnots =)

and it never fail to amaze me how beautiful our country is! i owe myself to write a post about Camotes Island... and i promise i will do a post about this enchanting island.

a lot has happened and i cant document everything in here as this is already a very long post...  but suffice to say that 2010 has really been a great year for this cat and i thank God for all the blessings he showered me.... and i know that 2011 is going to be more awesome! Cheers to you all. :)

you care about us
you're so lovable

just the way you are

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

your universe

I don't think that you even realize
The joy you make me feel when I'm inside
Your universe
You hold me like I'm the one who's precious
I hate to break it to you but it's just
The other way around
You can thank your stars all you want but
I'll always be the lucky one

canon photomarathon 2010 - manila leg

i had a chance to be a part of the Canon Photomarathon 2010 event last saturday held at Hall1 of SMX, Mall of Asia, it was a really nice experience.  there were more than 1000 participants and big kudos to canon team for making this event successful, dami pang freebies. i didnt win any of the prizes pero winner na rin because they were too generous by just giving all the participants a canon ef lens mug for free, winner na rin. experience and exposure, will join again next year :)

i was too tired from running around mall of asia trying to capture photos for the themes hence when i submitted my entry for the third theme umalis na ko, not to go home but have a chill night out with friends at MOA rin hehehe... but browsing sa mga forums, i saw the winning photo... wow! deserving talaga yung big winner na si Jesse Abad ng 5D Mark II, also reading from the thread it seems that the winner left early rin, too bad he wasnt able to accept his prize on stage.

big crowd! aside fromthe canon event there were also tons of cosplayers for the UP AME thingy event and there were lots of cute and sexy girls and some anime characters i like

i must say commendable ang pag manage ng canon nun event, they were strict with the rules, participants were given 3 themes to shoot. for each theme they have allocated 2 hours shooting time and 30minutes downloading time. i was actually stumped when they gave the first theme, riddle type kasi and on top of that puyat and antok ako hahaha excuses, but really nahirapan ako magisip ng entry for the theme hahaha

Theme 1:
Deep and Wide, Peaks and Valleys Go
Inside or outside, all the places you know
Near or Far it doesn't matter
It's the view that counts to the photographer

Theme 2
Big or Small we come in different sizes
short or tall, we grow in spurts and phases
round and round the circle of life goes
when we stop only god knows

Theme 3
Happy, mad - sometimes we feel the blues
angry, glad- our moods are changing hues
up and down or lows and highs
when we close our eyes - surprise!

canon photomarathon 2010 grand winner photo (photo grabbed here)

there were a lot of  freebies at the event from their sponsors and they provided free lunch and dinner, but i didnt eat at the venue, haba kasi ng pila so i opted to just eat out and buy my own food... i think next time its better they provide packed lunch for the participants instead of having long queues at the buffet since 1000 people is a lot.

all in all it was a big successful event event. big kudos to canon, thanks and sa uulitin :)
