“The Trees” sculpture in Burgos Circle teaser image

I have always wondered what that tree structure was in Burgos circle. I pass by it everyday on my way home so after my chocolate fire date with Kamille we headed out to Burgos Circle.

It turns out it is a steel sculpture. According to the pages I googled the tree sculpture is called “The Trees”, aptly named if I may say so :p. It’s an artwork by Reynato Paz Contreras. Read More…

Mount Pinatubo teaser image

Looking for a travel buddy is easy if you’re going to beaches, monuments, food destinations, etc. But for places like Mount Pinatubo where there is some physical exertion involved I found it quite hard. For the longest time I’ve invited my friends to trek Mount Pinatubo and the usual answer : “ayoko nun nakakapagod!”, “mainit!”, “gusto ko yung relax lang”, “pass” and these are from basketball / futbol playing / sporty / gym going guys. No one wants to go trekking, period.

Two weeks ago, I finally got to go. Guess with whom? 3 girls.

Fish Feeding at Solenad, Nuvali in Sta. Rosa Laguna teaser image

Fishy fishy fishy!! If you’ve seen Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo then you probably remember that line. If you don’t then you’ll say it anyway because there’s tons of them here!

This is the first time I’ve seen so much koi in one place. Some were even jumping out of the water as they were being fed. It’s really a sight to see and I’m sure everybody not just the kids will enjoy it. It’s a good place to bring your family, dine out and enjoy some outdoor activities.

University of Santo Tomas at Night teaser image

I got to see UST at night after the new year due to some unfortunate incident. My girlfriend’s brother had to be admitted to the UST hospital due to dengue fever.

I never appreciated UST until I saw it at night with all the lights on plus Kamille gave me a tour of her school and I realized how much historical value the place has. So when we headed back there I decided to bring my camera and shoot the place.

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you had a blast in 2011. If you’re planning trips for 2012 you should definitely include Caramoan Islands.

Policarpio Street in Mandaluyong City teaser image

Policarpio Street is the popular street in Mandaluyong City known for the wonderful Christmas lights and decorations of the houses.

I saw this on TV I think last year but only had the chance to see it today, I was accompanied by my girlfriend Kamille. It’s basically a street with houses, you can park anywhere along the street. I think it’s pretty safe since there are a lot of people going around and there’s a Tanod guarding the gate. I noticed 4-5 houses with displays but only 3 got my attention and those were the ones I took photos of. Read More…

Meralco Liwanag Park teaser image

I work in Makati but I pass by Ortigas often because I drive my girlfriend home after work. 2 weeks ago I noticed the Christmas lights on the Meralco building facade and the Giant belen from outside so I decided to give the place a visit. It turns out to be Meralco’s Christmas park called Meralco Liwanag Park, I think they changed the name recently because I saw a sign outside before saying Paskuhan Village.

In 2010 I got to see Anawangin cove in Zambales. It was just a side thing, the real trip was to go to Iba, Zambales. My friend Toff has a small resort in Iba. Check out their website Tammy’s Resort( I built it , shameless plug :) )

We stay at Tammy’s resort every once in a while to relax and unwind get away from the stresses of city life. When we’re there the routine is the same eat, play beach football, play cranium, get drunk, sleep then the cycle repeats. On this particular stay we wanted to do something different. So on the way home we decided to pass by Anawangin cove.
