Photo Shoot Day 2


March 11

For thrill seekers and mountaineers, here’s something for you to explore! Why not trek a river and picnic at Bayugin Falls? A 20-minute tricycle ride from the town of Bulusan to Brgy. San Francisco. Then, a 20-minute walk to the falls culminates the hiking. The path was mossy and slippery. A steeply descent to the falls made my knees shake! Haha!!! If you have watched Kingkong, the location looks like its setting.

One hour of shooting. Then, a rain threat made us get back to the base site. There had no cottages to shelter my DSLR. Hehe!!! Along with me, by the way, were Baoy, a local ally, and Anthony, a boy tour guide.

In the afternoon, Baoy and I had a little “spirit.” I got drunk, but still shot the bell fry. I climbed its roof top. Hehe! What if I fell, huh!…Scary… Just look at the photos below how tall it is!

Photo Shoot Day 1


March 10

I bought a big lobster only for Php 400.00 ($8.1). It weighed 1.4 kls. Not bad.

In the evening, I had my cousin cook simmered it in coconut milk along with unripened jackfruit. Muy delicioso! I spent my dinner at the beach along with my cousins and their families. Hhhmm… I partnered it with grilled fish and pork chop!

A superb night, huh!

Summer 2009: Hongkong or homebound?


January this year… my friend, an aspiring commercial model, and I agreed to spend a vacation in Hongkong, crossing through Macau and Singapore. We already paid our airfare. Unfortunately, her mom did not permit her for the travel. So, I found it also uncomfortable to travel alone. Well… the airfare was non-transferable, non-refundable. It was already forfeited!… The schedule was supposed to be on March 4-13.

Hmm…Maybe we lost some bucks… But I gained another heartwarming vacation when I visited Sorsogon City then.

So here we go!

As soon as I arrived, I paid homage to Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral. My grandfather-priest, Rev. Fr. Lolito Fuentes, was then celebrating the morning daily mass. As far as I am aware, he was tasked to have the cathedral and the convent reconstructed. After the mass, breakfast followed, together with Rev. Frs. Treb Futol and Rowan Gramonte.

Trivia: my deceased father’s name was Pablo and his birthday falls on June 28. The feast day of Sts. Peter and Paul is on June 29. Maybe my granny named him after St. Paul, Spanish of Paul… And!!! My name is Paul!!! But I am not junior, huh! Haha… Hmm, so no wonder my heart is close to this diocese!

Calling all Sorsogon devotees both local and abroad, your diocesan center of praise is in need of financial support. It is almost more than a year and the buildings are not even half-finished.

Come again and follow my trail from March 10 to 13.

US PRESIDENT OBAMA’S INAUGURAL SPEECH – JANUARY 20, 2009


OBAMA: My fellow citizens:


I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears, and true to our founding documents.

The Secret


Barely two years ago, I had met The Secret through the Oprah Winfrey Show. As soon as I opened my eyes in the late morning, I turned on the TV set and it was tuned in to Oprah’s program. She was guesting the people behind The Secret! This intrigued me (and maybe attracted me too) so I then secured a book for my keep. I even have the DVD version!

 

What is The Secret?

 

The Secret is simply the secret of the great men and women of all ages. It emphasizes an Eastern Philosophy which adheres to the principle that like attracts likes, thoughts attract similar thoughts, and condition attracts similar conditions. Though many are aware of this principle but only a few practice it. So then it remained a secret in history until The Secret revealed it and proved it. A reason why literally, we can only count through our fingers the number of prosperous and greatly successful people of all times!

 

It is evident in Psychology that you’re ought to be optimistic rather than pessimistic. Positive thoughts attract events, things, and circumstances of the same frequency level. Negative conditioning, to be specific, always leads to unpleasant results. Napoleon Hill, one of the famous inspirational writers scribed: What the mind can conceive and believe, can be achieved. Keep that in mind.

 

Simply, if you appreciate all the goodness in life, the more that good things will happen to you. You may not know when or how, but they will just pop up out of nowhere. The Whole Universe will conspire with you and provide you what you have thought of! If you fill your mind with regrets, fears, failures, and all negative thoughts, then you will magnet same occurrences! You will even attract people of the same sentiments!

 

Every thought is a cause, and every circumstance is just an effect.

 

Photography has been my passion. Lately, I was inclined into fashion photography. Out of nowhere, here comes a former friend.  She presented a proposal:

 

          Business name

Your thought is just like a magnet. Driven by a strong desire, it can bring you the best things in life.
