Exploring Baguio

It really felt great to be back in Baguio. From what I recall, I was still in grade school when we last visited this city. One thing I never really enjoyed was the long trip up and down the city. Other than that, it was great to see the city in a different way. Back when I was a kid, all that mattered  was being able to ride a horse around the park (plus the cold weather!)

It was nice to see places that brought back childhood memories. And it's good to know that most of the places we enjoyed visiting before are still there. It really felt nice to go around and say "Ah, naaalala ko 'to nung bata ako!"

Of course, biking around Burnham Park was one of those memories I was talking about. I think you can't not ride a bike when it's  your first time to visit this place.





I finally got to try the very famous Strawberry Taho! Only one of the many Strawberry flavored treats in the city. One of my favorites was Strawberry Sinigang.









 





We got to explore BenCab museum too! Fog came later in the afternoon which was really fun since I rarely get to experience thick fog in Manila.




I had such an amazing time in Baguio and I'm pretty sure I'll have to go back soon.

Weekend Workshop

One of the most fun weekends I've ever had this month. Meeting new people, sharing what I know, and being able to put faces to the creative individuals that have come across my feed are only some of the highlights every time I have workshops. I'm glad that I was able to collaborate with the amazing Cat Juan Ledesma and the lovely duo of Bungalow 300. It's always fun to organize events like these.

Town & Country December-January

One of my favorite shoots for 2014! It's always nice to work with people you're close to. It was natural that working with the creators of Craftsmith Living would be a breeze!

These are my favorite photos from the editorial

Exploring Hong Kong

We planned this trip months ago but I was never really excited to go. I was very doubtful when my friends told me I'd love it there.

They were right. I loved every bit of this place. 4 days were not enough to see everything. Most of the days we were there was spent walking around the busy streets of Hong Kong. I really hope that the next time I fly to Hong Kong, I get to explore more. I am hopeful to be back early next year.

I didn't really get to take a lot of photos (I probably did it intentionally so I have an excuse to come back) but here are some of the photos I took.
