#FSFAMnewyear2018

MOST RECENT

I'm a solo traveler with a "slightly" ambitious dream - to visit all 81 astonishing provinces in the Philippine archipelago. Ever since I started traveling, I was able to develop a love and passion for mobile photography. I get hyped to take travel photos. My aim is for the world to witness all the breathtaking destinations I laid my eyes on through my photographs.

Of all the places I've been to, I took my best shot in El Nido, Palawan. This was taken using my old mobile phone, LG G4. And if I am to give a title to this photo, I would choose "Chona Mae."
.
Last 2012, an earthquake hit the Visayas which caused panic and hysteria in Cebu, my hometown. People were rushing to go home, running in the streets, wanting to go uphill because a tsunami was about to devastate our humble city. But it never happened. Cebuanos then made a joke that the reason behind the frenzied reactions of the people was because a father was looking for his daughter named "Chona Mae" in the streets during the incident. When he called out her name, people misheard it as "tsunami" which made them freak out.

The waves at the Seven Commando Beach looked tsunami-like, hence the title. And I am proud to say that this is the best shot I took in 2017.

For a better and brighter year! Another year unlocked! 📍Nasugbu, Batangas.

Mother nature sure knows how to show off.

@heyjhude: “2017. I've been through a lot and I survived. Life is so deep and I can't barely explain how it feels to be in here. But I guess the best thing that happened to me last year was when I saw the reality of life. That it wasn't all sweets and flying colors. Not all that laughs are really happy, not all who cries are really sad, and not all who screams are mad. You have to look at their eyes first and see through their real emotions. I hope and pray that this year, people will be more aware of what other people trully feels.”

COMPASS | This is the tattoo that Elyang, Apo Whang Od’s grandniece, marked on my left leg. I’ve dreamed of having a tattoo before. I just didn’t know when I’d be doing it. I guess Shembot Squad’s trip in Kalinga this past week was the perfect opportunity to have it. I’ve wanted Apo to do it herself, but when she only agreed to mark us with her signature (the three dots), it was okay. At least I had a mark from her & also from someone who’s going to continue her art for generations to come.
.
Having a tattoo from the old Kalinga practice of tattooing was challenging, but that’s not to be compared to the other challenges I’ve experienced this past year. 2017 has proven to be one of the toughest years of my life. If you’re not yet aware, I almost lost my life this year... and a day doesn’t pass that I’m really grateful for it. My friends and I had an accident in Basilan a few months ago, and that experience taught me a lot.
.
On a brighter side, 2017 has been the year that I have traveled the most. And I am very glad that I did! The beautiful, the wonderful & the memorable places I’ve been to and people I’ve dealt with would always remind me to keep on exploring the world we live in. There’s so much to learn and so much to discover.
.
I‘m glad to have tied certain loose ends just before the past year has ended. I never wanted to keep things hanging, much more unresolved. Some of these things may prove hurtful, but at least, I’d find solace on their resolve. And for that I’m grateful.
.
Goodbye and thank you for the tough lessons, 2017! 2018, here I come! 😄

Looking forward to great and wonderful 2018.

One of beautiful beaches in the province of Sarangani can be found in the municipality of Glan. Travel time from General Santos City is 1 and a half hour. With many beach resorts to choose from, you can never go wrong with Gumasa. So who said that Gumasa Beach is very overrated? Actually, I enjoyed the place very much for its clear blue waters and long stretch of white sand.
.
This was part of my annual year-end travel getaway, together with Lake Holon. A way to cap a year full of learnings, fantastic experiences and, ups and downs.

Kudos to my travel buddy @eldrindg for this shot!

Cheers to more adventures waiting to be experienced this 2018! Happy New Year everyone!

Is it summer yet? 😂

This pretty much sums up my 2017.

1) An action shot, because I plan to keep going;

2) A somewhat wearisome but fun meal, because I have "too much on my plate" most of the time;

3) Chopsticks, because (I guess) I've learned two things: to take one step at a time, and to choose my battles wisely
