I’m back in Manila

I just came back from a backpacking trip outside the country. The first thing I checked when the plane landed in Manila is my mobile phone. It was turned off for a couple days so I was a bit excited to check text messages in my inbox.

Surprisingly, most of the messages I got were political campaign ads endorsing candidates for the local/national elections. How did they get my cell phone number?


Here’s one sample. (Hello.. I’m not residing in Palawan to begin with.)

These campaign materials are everywhere --- Print, TV, Radio, and all over the internet. Now, through text messages? Give me a break.

15th Hot Air Balloon Festival

Feb 14, 2010 - It was a “steamy” valentine’s day. :)

My friends and I went to the 15th Philippine Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, Pampanga. We arrived there around 4AM … good thing we arrived early! We waited in line for about 30mins to get tickets at the entrance. Not bad, but next time it would be better to purchase tickets in advance. 

Taking pictures was a challenge since almost everyone wanted to get good angle / view of the balloons taking flight. I think more and more people are getting hooked into photography. From entry-level cameras to high-end DSLRs, tripods, monopods, telephoto lenses… name it, and you’ll get to find someone walking while carrying these gears. There was even a booth selling DSLRs on site. It was crazy!

It would’ve been a great experience to ride one of these. But for now, I’m contented taking pictures from the ground.
