Follow your Star

It’s almost Christmas. As we journey through this season of giving, I give you this friendly reminder; follow your star but be mindful of where it ends. All of us has a unique star to follow but it all points to the same destination. Also, just like the three kings, we must remember that we never travel alone. We have our friends and family to ride beside us through the scorching desert and the cold winter nights that we may come across. And of course, we have the star to guide us and lead us to the right direction. But after all the ups and downs of this journey, remember that the star leads us to the reason we celebrate Christmas. No matter what path we take, or how we get there, it ends in the same place. So enjoy this joyous season but remember why we celebrate. Merry Christmas! 🙂

Our Christmas Tree is Up

21 more days before Christmas and our tree is up. Here are some of my photos from our tree. I am in love with macro…

Travel and Eat

Sinuglaw(Grilled Pork with Tuna ceviche)

Well, I’ve been thinking very deeply about what to post next in my blog and so I found myself looking through pictures of my journey back to the Philippines. And found these amazing photographs of the food I engulfed myself with and I greatly miss. All of these are from Antonio’s Restaurant at Davao City. I love this place. Overall, I enjoyed my experience with food more than anything else in the Philippines. Well I guess except for scuba diving but that is for another day and another post. Enjoy!

Legoland

It was my nephew’s day. He was so excited to go to legoland and pick up a lego of his choice. Jake definitely had a lot of fun that day but I think his uncle had a lot of fun too. I can even go as far as his uncle was jealous because he didn’t buy his own lego. hahahah! His uncle took a lot of pictures so I guess he left legoland with a smile on his face even though he didn’t leave with any lego.

Lego was my brother’s collection back in the Philippines. I think that explains why after buying one lego box, we had to go back and buy 3 more for his son Jake. His wife was mad for spoiling his son. hahaha! For a second there it seemed that he was really buying the lego for himself. hahaha!!! Never the less we all had a lot of fun. Enjoy my macro lego moments.

Thunderstorm Fun

greenhill sunset05-2After the second annual UMsigaw Picnic, we stayed for a few hours more at Assiniboine Park to relax and talk. At least my friends talked and relaxed. I was having fun too; experimenting, practicing, and learning marcro photography. I took pictures of my shoes and spiders.

My crazy day didn’t stop there, after we dropped off some of our things in my house, the clouds started to look a bit crazy but amazing to photograph. I hesitated at first to stop and take pictures because I didn’t want to delay any plans we have that night. But then my friend Angelique suggested that we should stop to take pictures because she said these things only happen a few times a year. After hearing this, I rushed towards the greenhill to take advantage of the beautiful sunset and cloud formation of the thunderstorm. Please click on the thumbnail for a larger preview. Also, please rate and comment and let me know what you think. Thanks ^__^

Looking Through the Eyes

This is a photo of my nephew Martin Jake. He is such an great model if he is in the mood. Hahaha!! This is such an amazing shot I can’t even contain myself. One day I was just playing around with Jake and then suddenly he puts his eyes directly on to my lens. I wasn’t thinking about taking a photo of him. It just so happen that my camera was in our living room and he saw it. I asked him if he wanted me to take a picture. He obliged and I told him to look away from the camera for one sec and here is my outcome. hahaha… Thanks Jake!!!

Just Another Flower

Well, I’ve been back in Winnipeg for several months now. And for those who’ve been following my blog (hahahah!! if there are any of you out there..), you know that all of my post since May 2009 was pictures from my trip to the Philippines. I still have good pictures to share from the Philippines but I decided that its time for a little change of scene. So here it is, my first Winnipeg photo. I hope you enjoy. This photo was one of my test shots after buying my macro lens.
