Pahabol – A Post-Holiday Entry

Enero 9, 2008
I never got around to posting any holiday entry last month, so I’m doing it now. Better late than never `di ba? 😀
The Holiday Season, straight from my cellphone’s camera:
Side stories:
A: Christmas tree at the reception area of our office-the very first Christmas picture I took last year (around November).
B: By the elevators at the lobby of our office building. Took this picture while waiting for my other officemates to come down.
C: A kiosk that sells Christmas lanterns from Pampanga.
D: The other side of the kiosk.

E: Hanging Christmas wreaths at a mall, which I pass by everyday on weekdays. View from the ground floor.

F: “Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!” Electronic-operated decors that give snow effect on (artificial) Christmas trees.

G: View from the top. See the giant golden snowflakes?

H: 2007’s giant Christmas tree in Cubao (Araneta Center). That’s how it looks at daytime.

I: Well-lit giant Christmas tree at night. Took the picture while stuck in traffic. D

J: GMA Network’s Christmas tree. Again, a shot taken from the window of a vehicle. The diver had to stop in Kamuning–at the MMDA office (figure out why he, the driver, had to do that. Hehehe)

K: My nephew, hugging a Php2, 500-worth giant balloon Santa.

L: Christmas wreath on our door. Thanks to the sales clerk who helped us put it together!

M: Our humble tree, which perfectly fit the corner of our little house.

N: New Year’s Eve; fireworks starting to light up the streets in our neighborhood.

O: Another New Year’s Eve snap.

P: New Year won’t be complete without fireworks ablaze in the sky.

I hope you had a joyful Christmas and may this year be good to us all. Cheers!

Laugh at your heart’s content

Agosto 17, 2007

Laughter is one of the most natural human reactions, next to crying. I don’t think anyone can do a practiced laugh, or maybe only very few can.

The following are among my favorite personal photos. For me, they’re more beautiful to look at compared to shots where we’re smartly dressed or fully made up.

Indeed, no medicine is more effective than laughter. Laugh as often and as loud as you can. Be happy! 🙂
