BOHOLicious weekend

Last weekend, I went to Bohol together with some friends. We stayed at the Dumaluan Beach Resort. That weekend trip was a blast! It was my first time to go there and I just fell in love with the beach… who wouldn’t?

Beside Dumaluan Beach is the Bohol Beach Club, we just paid the Php 350 entrance fee which is good enough for the whole day (and it's consumable -- food and drinks!). Like how my colleague describes it, “this place is like being in your private Boracay” (less the crowd, of course). These pictures were taken around 10:00 AM.,while some of my friends are still sleeping (and others went out to try the plunge and the zipline). No post-processing done on the pictures yet. This is beach heaven!

Photoshoot Preview

I was invited for an awesome photoshoot for BlackStellar Events last Saturday. Here’s a sample shot (double-click the picture for a larger image):


I’ll be uploading the full set to my gallery soon :)




I just met a superhero…


Relief Operations for the victims of Typhoon Ondoy  are still on-going throughout the country. I am amazed to see how this calamity united Filipinos from all walks of life. Go Team Pilipinas!

Last Wednesday, I volunteered again for the relief operations organized by our church in the Fort. I was assigned to an area near our church along with a familiar personality – Mr. Alex Compton.OndoyRelief_AlexCompton


To many, he is not just an ordinary guy. Alex is a full-blooded American born in the Philippines. He’s an athlete and was very popular during his years in the Metropolitan Basketball Association (Awarded 1999 MBA Most Valuable Player).


We exchanged stories about life and some of our ‘Ondoy experiences’ while on our way to Western Bicutan. We passed by a GK (Gawad Kalinga) community nearby and he looked so glad to see the developments in that area. He mentioned that he was able to volunteer that time when the houses there were being constructed.

“When did you become a Christian?”

“More than 10 years, I think…”, I replied.

“Mas lamang ka sa akin… (you have more advantage than me)”, he smiled.

Probably not, I thought. It’s funny to realize that I have more learning experiences inside the church than outside of it.

I am honored and humbled to learn from you, Alex. You taught me what ‘getting out of the comfort zone’ truly means.

September 30, 2009 – I learned that you don’t need to have super powers to be a hero. Your life could be a blessing to someone in need.
