Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall and Winter 2013: A Mix of Mismatch

Posted by on Jan 18, 2013 in Art & Photography, Business & Finance, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Events, Fashion, Featured, Hong Kong, Style Flair, Travel

I have always enjoyed crowd-watching in Hong Kong. When it’s spring or summer, you would see vibrant colors in their wardrobe from shoes to bags and accessories. Come winter time, you get to see the locals strut the city streets with hip boots and cover-ups! With this, I didn’t let the chance to cover Hong Kong Fashion Week just pass by. I receive invites to different countries to...

Touchdown Nepal: Important Reminders

Posted by on Oct 5, 2012 in Art & Photography, Featured, Nepal, Travel

It has always been disorienting for me to travel in different time zones especially when my phone doesn’t automatically update the clock settings!  Anyway, I couldn’t care much about the time anyway.  It sort of stopped for me right when I saw Mt. Everest by the plane!   The Himalayas and Mt. Everest view from AirAsia X plane   Good thing I decided to bring my 70-300 zoom lens I got to zoom...

  CONCLUSION: Great function at reasonable price!   AEE Magicam Underwater and Sports Camera I got a chance to review the new AEE Magicam underwater and sports camera.  It’s less known to the public than GoPro here in Manila, but after using it, I conclude that it’s a pretty good contender. Pricing is not yet set here in the Philippines since it is new but it will soon be available...

My Intimate Photoshoot with The Boudoir Dolls

Posted by on Jul 25, 2011 in Advocacy, Art & Photography, Beauty, Featured

The best way to gain self-confidence is to do what you are afraid to do. I don’t think I will be where I am now if I didn’t stop to look fear in the face.  I used to have stage fright, but I really love dancing and performing and so I had to overcome it.  Performing on the stage in live audience and hosting a live TV show are two different things.  And so, I had to overcome the...

Surfing Photography Tips

Posted by on May 5, 2011 in Art & Photography, Featured, La Union, Sports, Surfing

Surfing is definitely one of the sports that is fun to capture. Every photo you take has something to do with how the waves form, how your subject performs his tricks and of course – luck and timing! After you get a really good capture, it’s all worth it! Show your subject your gnarly photo of him and he will appreciate it. I’m a surfer too and I know how it feels when someone...

My Makeup and Costume for Pole Recital Photoshoot

Posted by on Apr 30, 2011 in Announcements, Art & Photography, Cosplay, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Featured, Music, Pole Dancing

I can say I’m a late bloomer.  I mean, I could have done all these things earlier – dancing, makeup, fashion and sewing!  But instead, I took a route to the corporate world first.  Not that I regretted ever studying Accounting and working for a corporation… I think all of that was meant to be and I enjoyed the journey I took and the people I’ve met along the way (which also...

Happy 5th anniversary Hong Kong Disneyland! 5 years ago, Disneyland officially opened in Hong Kong!  This meant a lot to us Filipinos because we don’t have to go all the way to the US to experience the magical world of Disneyland.  Hong Kong is just 2 hours away from the Philippines and this meant, more happy trips to kids and… well, adult kid like me 😛  It’s more affordable...

I must say, I am so reluctant to admit that at my 25 years of being here in the Philippines, I haven’t been to one of the most beautiful places in my home country – Palawan. I have heard the many good things people say about this place but sadly, some sad events happened too that I shared with you here. Apart from that, cyanide and dynamite fishing were very rampant, killing our...
