A portion of San Diego Bay looking still like liquid glass
Quitinday Hills is an upcoming attraction in Albay (or maybe it’s already popular). It boasts a magnificent view of the Mayon Volcano on a clear day, but the hills are a sight to behold on their own.
This stop is one of my favorite moments of last year. I still remember how it would drizzle for a few moments then the sun would shine again, and then drizzle again. I remember how clean the breeze was and how light and unburdened I felt. I remember how proud the locals were of their place and how kind the tricycle driver who brought me to the foot of the hills was.
There are so many beautiful places in the world, but this experience reminds me to come back to the Philippines and visit more.
I was wandering around Kamakura and caught sight of this lively street. I found it refreshing and lively considering how quiet and deserted the rest of the place is. Unexpected indeed and a positive experience for me.
A lively night in Shinjuku. Then again, Shinjuku’s always lively^^

It’s my seventh month here in the US and I’m still yet to slip back into the corporate cogwheel. There have been days when I’d feel really down, but after a third time breaking down I decided to choose looking at the good things God has given me since I got here.
This pic is from my daily walks, something that has become a routine for me, a way to clear my head and reflect at times too, keep healthy in all aspects, and pause and appreciate my surroundings. I’ve always admired how beautiful prolific wild flowers can be. It also reminds me of Matthew 6:26 – 34, particularly v. 30: “Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” (NKJV)

We almost didn’t make it, but my brother was determined to get there in time. We braved the frigid breeze and I tried my best to steady my hand to take shots. This is definitely one of my favorite sunset shots even if the sun itself is no longer really visible.

Clueless? Defiant? Bored? Brewing a prank?
Poised for an attack? About to take a nap?
One of those random shots that turned out to be a gem. In many ways, represents the detour I took.
One of those shots cementing my aunt-hood. One of those rare moments when the sight of a snake didn’t scare me.
…and into another dimension^^
