Pristine Waters of Masasa White Beach

Summertime!  Some enjoy basking under the sun clad in their designer swimsuit with matching designer spectacles.  I DON'T.  Some revel in the sight of cerulean waters and glistening white sand.   I REALLY DON'T.  Uhmm, maybe because I was trying so hard (and already spent so much) in making my skin tone significantly lighter than my original color.  And also because, you guessed it right, I do not know how to swim!  Oh, well...

5 Tips on How to Get a Good Night's Sleep

1... 2... 3... 10,001... 1,897,657.876... Oops, it's time to get up!
Think about it.  We spend a third of our lives in bed.  Say, what?  If you are 24 years old now, then 8 years of your life were spent lying on bed, sleeping.  Amazing fact isn't it?  Since we are spending that much time sleeping, it just makes perfect sense to get the most out of it.  After all, a good night's sleep recharges the mind, body and spirit.

Here's some tips for you to get a good shut-eye:

The Pinoy Shutterbug

My very first shot of the moon.  I used a Vivitar telephoto lens with a Canon entry-level camera.  I was lucky, don't you think?  The craters are noticeable in this picture.  No post-processing was done with this picture.
I love taking pictures.  I call myself, "The Pinoy Shutterbug".  For me, it's like capturing emotions.  Even an inanimate object when photographed on a certain lighting condition can evoke a certain kind of emotion in us.  I remember our very first camera.  It was an "instamatic" Kodak camera.  It was one of the few things my Dad bought in Japan in the 70's.  At that time, we have to load films (which are then available in rolls of 12's, 24's, and 36's) and use disposable flash bulbs (that cubic bulb that rotate each time it flashes).   Because  the film and flash bulbs are very pricey, we were only able to capture "Kodak moments" on special occasions.

Musical Theatre Goddess LEA SALONGA is Still Freaking Awesome - Rendition of Aladdin's A Whole New World with Il Divo went Viral

The YouTube video went viral after several websites featured the video from a performance of the operatic group Il Divo in their "A Musical Affair" world tour with the legendary Lea Salonga.  All of the articles from these websites were amazingly surprised to hear Princess Jasmine singing live on stage the iconic theme of the 1992 Disney animated film Aladdin, and sounded pretty much the same from more than two decades ago.  Lea Salonga's 2014 rendition is as perfect as her 1992's.  Everyone is stunned!  I wasn't!  You know why?  Because Lea Salonga is just PERFECT!

The Power of Three

I call this picture "The Power of Three".  This three-piece set is one of the many chandeliers hanging from the ceiling of the newly opened Chinese restaurant, Lugang Cafe, in Megamall's new Fashion Hall.
