Adarna: More Than a Mystical Bird

I am not referring to the publishing house. 😀

Recently, I discovered a restaurant along Kalayaan Avenue in Diliman, Quezon City that serves delicious authentic Filipino dishes. Diners can take their pick of favorite dishes from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

I’m excited! I joined Sony Ericsson’s photo contest — TOPSHOT — and six of the photos I submitted have been accepted!

Sony Ericsson allows you to share your best shots of the Philippines with the rest of the world through this contest. Show off what you’re proud about our country. All you need to do is take snaps with your Cyber-shot phone and submit the pictures here.Sony Ericsson is giving away really cool and exciting prizes. Check them out here.

Honestly speaking, there are a lot of good photos there. You can flip through the TOPSHOT gallery and you will be amazed. I’m personally thankful that camera phones were invented. They’re handy when there are moments worth capturing and you’re not carrying your SLR or digital camera. 😀

These are my entries:

What do you think? Do I have a chance? 😀

The first time I saw this during a commercial gap, I was laughing so hard afterwards. It’s really funny. And brilliant! Very creative. Enjoy watching and tell me what you think.
Some of my friends said that this ad is too intellectual for the Masang Pinoy. Partly true. One, it’s not hard sell. Two, there are no dialogues. Most Pinoys utilize commercial gaps to do other things or accomplish a chore. Three, the viewer is required to watch it from beginning to end or you wouldn’t understand the whole thing. Lastly, you have to read the sentence that appears before the last scene to have an idea what product is being advertised (product is only shown once — the last scene).
Still, I love it. It’s one of the good TVCs I’ve seen this year. Congratulations to the team who created it. )

Almost Summer

It feels good to get away from the hum of the city even for a while. A few weeks ago, I had the chance to spend a couple of days in Pundaquit, Zambales. Let me share some pictures of those relaxing days. 🙂

Early morning in Pundaquit, Zambales I love walking on the sand. Sea breeze on my skin.

Exploring the beach early morning, Saturday.


See the island?Kubo - perfect provincial ambience.By the nearby hill.Fun on the beach.

*Some quick snaps.*




The more lively end.

Bridge to Pundaquit.

The other side.

Had to ask our driver to stop here so I could take these shots.

I need to explore the place more. And I’m definitely going back! I have yet to know the real name of the river and the places it runs through. I have to visit the islands, too (Caponies) and see the other side of the hill, where, according to the locals, the water is calmer and the environment is more serene. Yeah, there’s a lot more to discover!
