Holiday Break

 OH MY GOSH!!! *SCREAMING!* Good Lord, finally it's officially Christmas break! Ended Nihonggo exam with a buzz (iykwim) plus bonded with my good friends. I just can't contain my happiness knowing and thinking that this year has been so awesome and I am so grateful to the blessings and struggles mostly at school. It's been one of the busiest Trimester in my college life. So happy that second trimester has finally ended. School's out, holiday break in! Since I don't usually bring SLR lately, I make use of my phone anyway. I wasn't suppose to blog this but whatever, I just wanna let you know what happened today. I know some of you are already out of town or maybe out of the country to start celebrating the holiday season and good buys too. I hope you're having fun as much as I do today. ;)

Garnier Anilao

If you'd ask me what would be the most unforgettable moment that happened to me before this year ends was #Sembreak2013 in Mati City, Davao Oriental which was held last October 25-26th! Since it was a 2-day party, there were tons of people who joined and enjoyed the madness including myself and my friends who was also there to witness. Watch the After Movie Video here: #Sembreak2013 
Plus, Mati will always be the place where magic happens. Perfect beach, sun, sand, place, party and people.

Retro Peach

I am now a first-time godmother of the cutest baby I've ever seen, Baby Luke Marcus. Since I already posted the summary (hope you already read it last night!) of what happened to Baby Luke's Christening, let me share with you my outfit post yesterday. In case you're wondering why I'm blogging at class hours is because I don't have class today, which is a good thing 'cos the weather is so nice and really cuddly! *Hugs* So back to the story, I'm now getting used to an outfit post though my blog isn't categorized on Fashion Blogs. Lol! My good readers, bear with me *winks* I haven't been traveling lately to places due to my lack of time and busy schedule ahead of us, college students! Plus it's already the start Final exam week and I have to double time and exert a lot of efforts on minors. To make this short, you may continue reading and see the photos below!

Luke Marcus

Something went well and special today, December 15th! The Christening of Baby Luke Marcus and me, being a first-timer "Ninang" (Godmother)! Oh gee, Baby Luke is the cutest and I am so proud of his parents which was my high school batch mates and good old friends! Speaking of good old friends, some of my closest in high school was also there which made me so happy seeing them again. Had some good laughs and talks about life and school! Gosh, I miss them to the extent. It's a blessing to us, having Tracey as our friend, accepting her baby as our "pamangkin" plus I would never say no for nothing. Proud as well, though at their young age, they can handle the parents' obligations and needs for their child. To make the story short, see our photos below! ;)

Retaliate

Have you ever been to a party where 90% of the people are great dancers? Well we do! Last November, #Retaliate strikes Davao! Had couple of shots, dancing, selling, and more shots and dancing! *Puff* If you've seen my post earlier about this party, you'd have any idea about what up in Retaliate. I always love parties because I get to meet a lot of new friends and they all seem so nice and crazy! (Photo by Klyde Jarabelo)

Carte Blanche 2013

The Queen of all late! I know man, Carte Blanche 2013 is already 1 month old since it happened. But there's no such thing as stopping me for not posting a blog (even if I am sick for week!) about the crazy, wet, wild, ecstatic EDM Party ever held in Davao --- Or maybe even in Mindanao! The first ever Electric Music Carnival / 3D Party held in Mindanao. How cool is that? After straight parties before, one of the most unforgettable was CB2013! I can't contain how fun that one night was and what excites me more is that I heard, next year will be 2-day EMC Carte Blanche party!

Timbre

It has been for ages since the last time I posted a good entry on my blog! Gee, I missed you to bits! *Hugs, hugs*. I've been so busy in school (naks! lol), plus I am sick for almost a week now. Crazy right? This post was supposedly last month pa! Apologies. Anyway, I kind of took advantage of being a Lana Del Rey wannabe because of my floral crown which was made by my good friend, Bianca Sabellano from Fine Arts department. I also have another one which I used during Carte Blanche 2013 party. (I'm gonna blog about that soon! So stay tuned). Been also too flory during this shoot, from skirt, head piece to background! Earthly love indeed. As you can see, I cut my hair shorter and until now, I don't see any improvements! (*Cries* I want my old, long hair back!). Anyway, enough being a drama queen. Take a peek of what's inside! ;)

Bangon Pilipinas

I think everyone is aware with what happened on the recent devastation caused by the super-typhoon YOLANDA, with an international name HAIYAN. If you've seen the news, especially on CNN or even on your local news, as well as the photos on social networking sites. It's worst than hell. But there was still a positive outlook despite of the catastrophe happened --- the oneness of people all over the world. Helping, donating, volunteering in every way they could. Even on the simplest things they can do to help. From the past few days, after the catastrophic event happened in Visayas region where there were a lot of lives lost, economy was down, there were looting, a lot of people got sick, lost their homes, and the worst, their dignity to themselves. People were starting to feel pity. Donations overflowed but it wasn't too quick to response due to the downfall of electricity and communications were offline due to the typhoon. But now, the electricity was restored in Visayas region. Despite of not blogging for too long, I was busy helping out and volunteered at Philippine Red Cross, Davao City Chapter. Here are some of our photos from day one to day 5!

#Sembreak2013

It has been forever since the last time I posted an entry! Oh how I miss blogging! *cries*. I have been so busy with stuffs that's why and since today is already November and there are few more weeks before December, let me fill you up on what I've been up to! Last October 25th-27th, my friends and I went to another epic party in Mati City, Davao Oriental for the #Sembreak2013! And the crowd didn't disappoint us for being so wild and fun! It was waaaay better than last year. It's all over Instagram too! Just search for the key word #Sembreak2013. To make the story short, here are some cray photos we took before and after!

Retaliate

Hi there folks! I haven't been on the track lately since I was so busy at school. Thank God, it's Friday! Ugh! I have pending posts that're waiting for my approval but I don't have spare time to do such. Anyway, accept my apologies. Teehee! I have exciting news and event for you! Comeback Presents...

I Spy DIY

Oh, hello October! Let me just start this month with some simple tips I could share and give to you my lovely readers. When you're too bored or just wanted to see new looks on your things, what would you? If you question me, my answer would be "DIY-ing my old shirts/shorts". It doesn't have to be perfect, you just have to be creative. I have so many clothes that I don't wear anymore but I do love them and I can't just give it away to anyone (but many of my clothes were donated to ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya when my mom was still here in the country to help the people who were totally hit by the typhoon). Well anyway, I was left with my favorites ones! Last week, I made another fringe top from an old red T-Shirt and I wore it when my friends and I hangout for a night. I know, it's already ber-month and it's cold-blah-blah. But since I live in a tropical country, I can't seem to feel the coldness yet! I loooove fringe tops (and bags too!), I think it's too light, it matches with everything (jeans, shorts, skirts) and it's very easy to make one!

Party Poppers

As we all know, we are only left with 3 months 'til we say goodbye to the year 2013! How time flies too fast, and it's too odd if we aren't even gonna make use of this year. What I got right here to share with you are the two parties --- Hence, 2 PARTIES! The Sembreak 2013 and The Carte Blanche 2013! If you happen to follow me in any of my accounts (i.e., Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) you will know what am talking about. I've been posting their official posters on my accounts too! As far as I know, there are a lot of people who are interested about it. Who doesn't? Apart from the fact that these two parties will be on October and November, I have to post this on my blog for you to think about it and save up your allowance for this surely be remembered event! Well, don't get your hopes down since the official Carte Blanche team is giving away tickets!

Discover Madness

Have you ever heard about Tomorrowland? If not, then you're in the good hands (which is me). Tomorrowland is by far best biggest, grandest, wildest, most international and colorful crowd and party in this Universe! Beat that! Why am I blogging this is first, I want to experience it, which is already listed in my bucket list so if ever given a chance (and enough money to go) then I will with no hesitations and second thoughts. Second is, Philippines has been included in the "Thank you" video which you will see later. The moment Tomorrowland Channel released the Tomorrowland 2013 Official After movie on their YouTube page, I hurriedly downloaded it on my phone though it took couple of minutes after. It was worth the wait! Lol. So basically, I wanted to share with you one of my "Before-I-Die's-stuff" so here's one. A lot of my friends wanted to be here as much as I do and hopefully after we graduate or later then. Tomorrowland is held in Boom, Belgium for 3 straight days of non-stop partying together, with over 214 countries and 180,000 attendees from all over the world gathered in one place and event and that is Tomorrowland. There are line-ups of amazing DJ's in the world also gathered in the event. It's truly amazing and I had goosebumps while watching this magnifique

Peers

It's been a long time since I last posted something about school stuff-- I bet not everyone know it's our so-called Trimester break for a week! I barely can't feel it. We still have so much school works to do due til Thursday! I hope and praying by then we're over it though. Our Finals just ended last week but last Monday, we had our one last Final exams on PE. Our most favorite sport, Bowling on where I get 95 for the first time since I played Bowling. Lol! Since I am really craving for some blog posts for this week, so I made use of my phone for the reason that I am to lazy to bring DSLR and it's heavy, if you ask! I've been practicing my dialogues for this Thursday's presentation since I am not in the mood to go out and go to malls (well, if you know what I mean on what's happening here in Davao) and if you're watching news often, you know what am saying and it's very alarming AND I can't seem to risk my life then. It's too long story to tell. Back on the post, here's to what happened on that day!

Crafty Dreamcatcher

 Howdy readers! It's been a very long time since I last posted a blog and I can't even imagine how I missed all of you and blogging. *cries*! Let me explain to you why. Our Finals just ended yesterday, and since I am still a student, I have to exert double effort in all of the subjects. And it seems that I wasn't pack up with lots of posts though! But last month, I ordered a very special Dream catcher from Crafty Craft Dream catcher. The owner is actually a graduate from PWC so I get an easy access whenever I want to order a personalized dream catcher/s. It's actually my 7th collection and yes, I'm planning to collect more in different sizes, designs, made of, colors, shapes, etc. I know! I'm so obsessed with all of 'em! Don't blame me. Lol! I've been observing people lately and seems like they're in to it too. They love it as much as I do, though. Happy to know that. Somehow, if I'm gonna buy another one, I'm such in a complication on where am I gonna hung it yet my mini photo-wall-gallery is almost full and I've so much new photos to hung in there. Should I buy another stand (which actually occupies another space in my room, sigh) or fill my wall with dream catchers? Anyway, I'm gonna work on it soon! Take a peek.

Kadayawan Festival 2013

Kadayawan Festival, one of the most celebrated festivals in the country. It commemorates the town's thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest and blessings to each town's and tribes. It's celebrated yearly during August usually held on the second week. It's been an honor to participate at this event. Gladly, our school also performed during the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan. It is participated in numbers of categories consists of participants in different schools, places, etc. Despite of the security measurements that was implemented during the whole event, locals and tourists didn't hesitate to go out, explore and enjoy what Davao City offers! Likewise, my friend (Dina) and I didn't waste any time. As early as 7 am, we were preparing for our cameras and lenses to be use during the event. It was sizzling hot that we had to roam around (of course, with our ID's) for us to enter the site. Since everyone can't enter the main stage/performance area then. Luckily, we have the Photographer's Pass. It was very different this time. It was unexpected for some reasons. But then, I'm glad nothing bad happened. Somehow, we did enjoyed covering the event (which we usually do every year). Well, so much for preaching. Let me share to you some of my shots during the Indak Indak sa Kadalanan 2013.

Strobe Lights

This is College. Going home late, paper works, film works, and any works you could ever imagine. We get it, preparation. Okay! So let me share with you our "Behind-the-scenes" during our 3-day film shooting. Exhausting but very very fun, I say! Found new friends and cherished new memories together with the gang which makes me so happy since there were no dull and awkward moments during the shoot. It was so weird 'cause the time was in a hurry. We have to catch up the time for the whole day from 8am and at least until 12 midnight. Good thing there's a spare battery for the camera. Work hard, play hard!

Safe & Sound

Hi there! It take long days before I post on my blog though, apologizing. Well, can I tell you how exhausted I am from the last week's errands, projects, exams and stuff you could ever imagine in a life of a college student. I feel like crying every time I think of giving up but it was never an option to me but I just thought of it when the world is like opposing me, if you know what I mean. You just have to sacrifice something to get it done. I think this month is very stressful! So much to do yet so little time. But anyway, I don't want to get sadness affect me so let me start with you this exciting blog post today.

August Mayhem

Hello August! Can I tell you how excited I am for this month? Like... very very excited! Jam packed of activities and parties! Why? Because it's another year to celebrate the Kadayawan Festival. It's one of the biggest and grandest festivals in the country, tourists come to Davao for a week or maybe even a month to see and for the one week festivity. I am much more excited to tell you that there are lined up parties on the festival. Time to put on some dancing shoes then! I am lucky since our school's also participating on the event and compete on the street dancing category. Our midterm exams will be up ahead than any other schools (since we are Trimester) and yep, you will definitely see me capturing timeless moments on Kadayawan! Where? On the streets of Davao City, of course! Don't hesitate to say hi! ;) Speaking of which, back to the parties. If you're too awesome and definitely a party goer, here's for you (and for me too!)

Photo Dump

Aaahh! Can you believe that it's the last day of July?! Say whuuut! I mean, it's so fast and seems like yesterday. So since I can't always bring my camera wherever I go, here's a compilation of my Instagram photo dump inspired by Tricia Gosingtian. I got this whole idea while I was blog hopping and such. And since it's the last day of the month let me share with you some of the photos I shared on my Instagram. Nowadays, people are so busy on their mobile phones and they can't even leave the house without their mobiles (well, including me of course). So much going on in the social networking sites like hash tags, throwbacks, selfies and much more! Here are some of the photos you can see on my Instagram site (and Twitter too!)
What's more fun in doodling? Well, I think I am good on that!

Love for Cases

I have never been so wrong on being an addict, collecting cases ever since to my old phones before! I just think it's cool and the fact that YOU... YES YOU can customize your own casings just like I did with mine. Actually, the designs (I mean some) are mine and I let CASES DAVAO do its thing. I thought I would never get these stuff, that was supposedly last week due to my heavy and full packed schedule. Man 'twas insane! Speaking of which, em in love with its little details printed on, colors and uniqueness of each one of 'em! I can't stop staring the back case though. They're all my favorite and I can't decide which am I gonna use for everyday. Lol!

Crystalised

And it turns to be a blurry shots on a blurry night! I have no idea what went so not well with the photos taken by my good friends using my SLR! So let me just post this though since I do love my shorts *winks*. I spent my weekend with my good friends. Dined and had an overflowing chitchat. I've been down of interesting blog posts lately since I am very well busy and I don't time to go out of town or even the nearest beach here! Boo, right? *cries*. That's why it's a very big deal to me to go out once (or twice) a week somehow!

Korean Night

I finally have a chance to post something on my blog before this month's end! Ahhh this day was so much fun! Reunited with some of my closest friends in high school and catch up a lot of news and stuff and did A LOT of unending photo sesh with those guys! Tiring and cray but worth it! Getting back to what went well tonight. So I had to hurry and head to SM Lanang Premier to meet with my friends. Unfortunately, it's a very long ride from our house and the fact that I left the house on a rush hour! When I arrived at SM, I have no idea it was jam packed with people since the mall is having a 3-day Sale and there were so much guests in one night. Eun Joo Park, a Korean rock violin diva at the Atrium! I really don't know her and it's my first time to see her. I never thought she's really good and rocked the whole place! My friends was also at Manna Davao, a Korean restaurant that serves really good Korean dishes! I think I fell in love with it *winks*.

Sweet Love

Ahh! I wanna scream and shout and let it all out for not updating my blog too soon! I have been soooo busy and I have so much errands to do. Oh forgive me! So, today I just want to update it and the fact that I am using my mobile for this and grab something on my camera roll. Yep! That's how much I love you guys. I can't wait to post what we've been up to and this, shooting some stuff for my friends' birthday! Simple yet the sweetest! So much for that. Hugs and kisses to everyone!

Apple Green Wins

 Hello there! So basically, it's another month of the year we are facing. Which means, it's our exam month (Prelims). I got 2 more full days to study for the upcoming exams on Wednesday 'til Friday. *Winks, wish me luck!*. Before being on me, on a busy side of this month, let me share to you our last month's event which is our Acquaintance Party (Generally). It was so much fun despite of the sudden change of weather, and it rains the whole game part! We were dissected to different color schemes and teams with coaches, of course. I was on the Apple Green Team who won the game, first! Lucky are we, we had a very strong and competitive group among! Nonetheless of almost forgetting I have one left to blog and this was supposedly to the last day of June! Oh, forgetful me. Soooo here it is!

Boys Night Out

 The month of June has been a cray yet fun and unexpected month for me! The both last 2 weeks of it: Well spent! As promised, here are the photos from last week's night out with the Boys of Magic 89.9. If you're familiar with them, then you're cool! They've been touring around places/cities in the Philippines and fortunately we've been so lucky to be part of their SmartBNOxDavao visit! Since I am a Smart user, and that party was courtesy of Smart, I was then had a free entrance ticket and a meet and greet pass with the DJ's of Magic! Lucky? Super! And that doesn't end there, my friends and I met them all and had an opportunity to chit-chat with them and make friends with 'em! Thanks to Smart, Live More for the letting me in FREE! A party went well by Magic 89.1 Davao and everyone was having F-U-N! Ecstatic! Take a peek of what went cray last week's Friday night.

Jack Daniels

Being a college student need A LOT of effort. Even on a Sunday, you really have to work instead of being at home or church with your family. But in our case, we were at the airport to take photos for out Tourism Planning thesis making. We had a 50-50 chance 'cause of the weather. It did rained so we had to pull over and wait for it to stop. Was also lucky since we took photos from outside (since we aren't allowed to go in for some security reasons and definitely if you are not a passenger) before it rained. Didn't expect to rain since Davao was having a really humid weather. You really can't detect Davao's weather sometimes and it just suck! But thank you to SMART LTE, I had to update socially! Woop woop! And fast! Before anything else takes place, here are some of my "so me" shots taken by my good friend Eunice. She instantly had a good relationship using my SLR though and I am so happy about it! ;)

Neon Splash

It has been so long since the last time I blogged something! I miss you too much and I can't believe it's been a week since the first day of class started. It's insane how fast time flies, you can't imagine it these days. And since I owe you all gazillions of blog posts from the past days, I finally had a chance to play again with my camera with the help of my friends and of course the idea of being outside the house. Yesterday, my friend and I was supposed to buy books in the school but unfortunately, it closed about an hour after we arrived. Good thing I bought my camera with me despite of the heavy and long lens 'cause I know it's all worth the capture! It has been also a very gloomy afternoon and the fact that it rained couple of hours then. Weather here is really unpredictable, and the most important thing to consider is bringing umbrella and always secure your stuff! So much for that, today, I'm gonna share to you what we've been up with my friends and let the photos do the talkin'!

Socially Attached

What is APP? I have been on these new stuff called KEEK and VINE lately which are both on a Video app thing. I signed up to know how and fortunately, I am loving it! It seems so cool and since photos are so overrated, why not try Vlogging in just seconds! Well, if you're not that camera shy type person like me (hahaha) then you must have this on your phone! I don't know, but I am poor on followers when it comes to these and I would love you to follow me on: 
KEEK
Subscribe and follow me to see more of "ME-ME" and useless videos!

The second one is VINE
As far as I know, you can only download it via App Store and Google Play
but if you don't have both, you can still see my works on Twitter!
See it for your self :)
If you have one, follow me and search for my name: Eishelle Cellona or +Eishelle Cellona 

I am blogging before the class starts! Spending my weekend in my own little way. I can not believe that it's back to school season already, do you? *Sigh* Well anyway, leaving you with my latest post on Vine made by yours truly!

Hello June

Would you ever forgive me if I haven't been blogging lately?! Haaaa! It's been a crazy busy so far and Davao's weather isn't doing great! And I can't bring my SLR anywhere I go because I think that it's very hassle. So I'm gonna blog about the most ever random shots via my iPhone and what I have been posting on my Instagram. Peace out! I promise you all to give a lot of blog post soon. And since it's back to school season already, expect more of people (old and new) to see here on my blog for upcoming days! But this time, I want y'all to enjoy these photos I can share with you.

SarBay Fest 2013

It was yet another experience for me to be there. Travelling to the South was my first time and probably not my last! SarBay Fest reach 70k guest during the 2 day festival and it was craaaay! The people there were amazeball, they're so hyper, dancing, and the best part was meeting new people from there. Love 'em! To make the long story short, take a peek of what we did. SarBay Fest was probably a year ender for most of us!

WTB: SarBay Edition


Am I feeling already the heat? YES! Am I excited to hit the beach? VERY YES! Today, I'm gonna blog about "What to Bring: SarBay Edition" and "What's in my bag" for the 2 day event! 4 more days left before the biggest beach event in Mindanao and getting Re-tweets from @sarbayfest on Twitter makes me more excited about it! There's no such thing as over-packing bikinis and today I'm gonna show you my new picks! Take a peek on what's what.

Egyptian Classic

 تحيات And that means "Greetings" in Egyptian! Hello readers! It's been somehow weeks from my last blog post. I've been somehow busy doing my personal errands and such! Well, most of you knew that I am a massive fan of Dream Catchers and to addition of my collections, here's a new one given to me by my dearest Mom which was bought from Egypt by her friend. Oh and by the way, Belated Happy Mother's Day to lovely Mum's out there! Going back, this one's a bit strange since we all know that Dream Catchers are made up of wood, in a circular shape and has feathery designs. This one's made up of metal and shaped like a jelly fish (or am I being imaginative enough? hahaha!) I've been researching it on Google lately since I am strangely amazed with it. It's beautiful, don't you think? Unfortunately, haven't seen any of it on the internet. Even photos, none. I guess I'm lucky enough to have a different aura of collectible. Well if you know something about a bit of this, let me know! And oh, I haven't done any edits with the photos except for adding watermarks, and I am such a happy kid knowing I'm getting better and better on photography. With a little help of my external flash, lighting and good angle. Canon always works awe-incredible-some!

SarBay Fest 2013

Are you hitting the beach this May? Do you want to explore beaches and places you've never been to? Then this is for you, SarBay Fest 2013 (Sarangani Bay Festival 2013). This is the biggest beach festival in Mindanao, if you'd ask. Sarangani Bay is located on the southern tip of Mindanao here in the Philippines. General Santos City or commonly called by the locals as GenSan is one of the Philippines most important cities and ports, is located on the bay of Sarangani, making it one of the busiest. Well so much for that! Let me take you to the Festival. This coming May 24-25, 2013 (SAVE THE DATES!!!) it is gonna be a one hit of a big party knowing that a lot of people were talking about this on Facebook & Twitter, and that includes us! SarBay Fest will be held at Gumasa, Glan, Sarangani. 
TRIVIA! 
Did you know that the island of Gumasa is titled as the "Little Boracay" in Mindanao. 
You may check out this blog as well
or just simply type Gumasa Beach on Google to see more!
Since it's compared to the majestic, pure sands of Boracay it's hence in quite similarities. Though I haven't been there, my friends told me that it has really good quality of sands and clear blue waters of the ocean. Oh, this makes me feel so excited going to Gumasa, barefooted and enjoying the breeze of the wind and the pristine waters of it! Mindanao has so much to offer! I have been telling you this for the longest time. You can never go wrong if you will travel the highlands to Islands of Mindanao.

Motion

It's once another month to deal with. More of only a month before classes will begin and that doesn't want me to start yet! May 1 & 2 has been both productive to me well because of so many reasons. The second day of this month has been more of like it! I did a night photo walk, it's my first time so I am not good at lightning and my I can't control my hands on being shaky. So I decided to title my work today "Motion" since people & cars are moving. The subject I have today is a bit more interesting since I went to two of the busiest streets in Davao City. First stop: China Town (Uyanguren) and the second stop: San Pedro Street. I think most of the photo-walkers loves to go here since it has so much! From dusk 'til dawn or sunrise to sunset. Besides, you can find everything under the sun in these so-called people's shopping retails! If you've been here, probably you know what I'm talking about. Well if you're Manila, it's like Divisoria or Baclaran--- something more of it like that BUT cleaner and much safer because there are Patrols who roam around the street! If you're fun of the so called "Ukay-Ukay" or "Wagwag" then here's the perfect place for you. From clothes to shoes to bags, name it and it's there. Well patience is totally in need to this place since there's thousands (or millions) stuff to find!

Mom, I love you

Today is the last day for the month of April. Let me just take this opportunity to express my gratitude to my mom (well both of them though). But since the celebration for Mother's Day will be more days before, I will just post this then. So my mom had her month vacation back here in Philippines. I just can't believe that she has to leave so soon, which was yesterday! I actually don't feel bad (okay, a bit) but not really since I had a month with her. Spent so much with her! I just miss my mom that much, even one month isn't enough! I've never been so happy having her here, I can share gazillions of thoughts I've been thinking and then there's mom, always ready to listen and advice such things. I mean, to anything I guess! She's the best ever. I couldn't ask for more or so! Last night, she has to say good bye to the Philippines and head back to Africa, since her job is there. Last nigh (my dad, cousin and I) accompanied her to the airport. Her stay in this country was really not enough but at least, I know she enjoyed it. Love you mum, you're the best-est person I've ever known! Enjoy the photos! :-)

Teenage Kicks

What has been up, readers? Today, I'm gonna blog about what we did that is so cool and interesting which I have been doing from the past 3 years already. Ever since I got into photography, Canon is always the number one camera/DSLR I consider the most easy yet sufficient and elegant. Every year, Canon is holding a Photoskwela from different places in the Philippines. This year, they take off to Davao City which was held in SM Atrium. The guest speakers were Troy Monsod and Mr. Per-Andre Hoffman. If you're familiar with them, then you know what who the people I just mentioned. Both of them are big names in the industry of Photography. They're both ambassadors of Canon Philippines. I've met them before so I was familiar with their works and shots. It's always nice and different which is great! Talks and techniques that they have been sharing to so much people from the past few years. Every time Canon will hold Photoskwela's, the Canon team never fails to send me mails or contact me personally. I'm so glad they remembered me! Thanks for that. So to make the long story short, take a peek of today! Enjoy :-)

Day Four: Just Capture It

Our fourth and last day of the tour has finally come to and end! Awwweee sad but at the same time, we all had fun! So our itinerary for that day was to visit Overview which is amazeball, lunch at Seagull mountain resort and lastly, visit Philippine Eagle Center. Leaving Bukidnon was so much in a hurry since some of us woke up late and I haven't finished packing my stuffs yet. But thank God, the bus didn't leave us then. We have to travel hours to get to our destination, which is first the Overview in BuDa (Bukidnon-Davao) road. I have nothing else to say but... the view was truly captivating. It's so nature-y and refreshing but everyone went loco to the "pasalubong" corner which is on the hallway. So much for that, enjoy the view and the photos! :-)

Day Three: Bukidnon City


Blog post tour finally on day three! Hooray! Well, it's sad to leave and say goodbye to the awesome Cagayan de Oro but everyone has to. On the third day, we are heading to Bukidnon. It's like Tagaytay/Baguio scenery, yet it's located in Mindanao. It's cold and foggy even if it's summertime. The place is totally relaxing since there are thousands of pine trees surrounding the place! The view's are great too, sad to say I don't have photos of most of it since we were sleeping all through out the travel. This wasn't my first time in Bukidnon, but first time in Waig Crystal Spring Resort. Yep, that's we're heading. We had an overnight there, which we were freezing in coldness plus the air-conditioned rooms were bummers! There's so much in that place, though. You may avail with their cable cars, horse back riding, hanging bridge, the zip line and their pools and so much more! Check out their official website, just click the link: Waig Crystal Spring Resort. The tour wouldn't be complete without photos, right? Check out my shots! Enjoy :)

Day Two: Iligan City


Second day of our tour! This day for us has been sooo tiring and exhausting but it was all worth it. We have 4 destinations to visit for this day namely: Divine Mercy, Maria Cristina Falls, Timoga Spring Resort and last but not the least, The Tinago Falls. Before leaving Cagayan de Oro City, we had breakfast at Marco Hotel, the food were really great! Before 10am, we depart the place and head on to Iligan City. Iligan City is a first class highly urbanized city in the province of Lanao del Norte which is also in Region X, Northern Mindanao. If you're familiar with this, I bet you know what I'm saying. If not, you may read their Wikipedia. It is just a small city, people that're simple living and it is the home of The Majestic Falls. The supply of water in this place is massive! Why? Because Maria Cristina falls is located here. You'll know so much about this later! Second day of the tour has been amazing, seeing the wonders of nature you could ever imagine! I never thought even just in Mindanao, there are thousands of beautiful creations. It's truly more fun here, I preach that! Anyway, this is a long blog for tonight! So much views I'm gonna share with you. I hope you will have fun and gain knowledge on this. Enjoy! :-)
