‎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're romantic at heart
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
