a wishlist update:

someone is telling me about his recent trip from palawan. that i should go there since the fare is dirt cheap. i wish i have money to blow on trips but all my money is being sucked dry by my lust for filters and lenses. haha! *expensive hobby, f*
now, im targetting the canon 18-200mm *nerdtalk*. i seriously need a Sideline since the bugger cost 30k+.
i'll just add the lens on my wishlist for now. =)

graphika weekend

i became one of the lucky delegates to attend the GraphikaManila '09 in MOA premiere cinema last Aug 15. and since i'm satisfied with it, i will choose not to bash it.

highlights :
• The Stefan Seigmaster talk -- who made me realize that i shold complain with the peanuts that i get for working and for not taking credit for all the great things i do for work.
• The Industrial Light and Magic Reel & Christian Alzmann -- get a day job that will pay for a dream job until you do your dream job. and he gets to get paid great money to draw robots (something he used to do in Math class1 hahah)
• Brand new school's Ludovic Schorro - love the typography. =)
• and of course, i get to witness the magic with Tabs

i will share some of the photos i took at graphikamanila, MOA and a roofdeck with an inclined ledge. :)

its a sad day for my generation since we grew up listening to francis magalona's music.
i loved listening to his music from Cold Summer Nights to Superproxy. and look at his photography/art.
a talented man indeed.

san na tyo makakakita ng superproxy nya?
may he rest in peace.


i was up until 3am...
some people knows why...
my head is swimming...

and because of this.
i deserve a pedicure and a trip to the ice cream bar and new tsinelas! hehee!

being mortal

ah. its been a long time. 

i was juggling JO's after JO's. haggling for deadline extension -- baka umubra. its been a crazy week. hay.


watched Curious Case of Benjamin Button last saturday, not because of Brad Pitt, but because i have read the story way before i learned that it will be filmed. and i agree, it is one of the best films of 2008. =)

i've been reminded again of how short life is.

weird when g & i were talking about money and fulfillment. i said i'd pick fulfillment anyday. since i think there would come a time you couldnt think of a single thing to buy.
i feel fulfilled when i cook for the people i love -- esp. when all i end up with are dirty dishes. hahaha. i should really open my own carinderia. =)

taken from leaflens: always be happy, and enjoy. no amount of stress is worth it. pera lang yan. trabaho lang yan. aanhin mo ang payroll kung patay ka na o nasa coma ka? morbid thought, but it's a good reality check nonetheless.

project 365

i know im a bit late. i'll play catch up. this is one of the things i'll do this year. wala lang pong kokontra. hahaah! wish me luck!******Project 365: How to Take a Photo a Day and See Your Life in a Whole New Way

Project 365People will often say that their whole lives flashed before their eyes after they experienced a traumatic event. Perhaps it’s a bit morbid, but we think that sounds pretty incredible.

When Taylor McKnight started taking a photo a day on January 1st, 2004, he never imagined the project would not only serve as a way to remember a year, but also help him understand what was important to him in his life.

Whether it was his relationships, his career, or his fashion sense, recording a photo a day for a whole year left him with a rich visual history of his life. And it made him a better photographer to boot!

Now that he’s in the middle of doing it for a second time, we asked Taylor to write about it for us. Read on for our tutorial on how and why to create your own daily photographic history.


Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:

  • Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)

  • Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.

  • Taking a photo a day will make you a better photographer. Using your camera every day will help you learn its limits. You will get better at composing your shots, you’ll start to care about lighting, and you’ll become more creative with your photography when you’re forced to come up with something new every single day.


Here are six tips on how to create your own Project 365:

  1. Bring Your Camera Everywhere
    Yes, everywhere. Get in the habit. Grocery stores, restaurants, parties, work, and school. Going to a movie theatre? Snap a pic of the flick with your phone–there are photo-ops everywhere. If you have one of those tiny tiny cameras, you have no excuse not to have it in your pocket all the time. And if you don’t? Camera phones are a great substitute.

  2. Make Posting Easy
    You can install blog software like Movable Type or Wordpress on your own site and create an entry for each photo, but for true ease of use, try a photo sharing site. Flickr will let you post a week’s worth of photos in 2 minutes flat, and fotolog and are geared toward a photo-a-day workflow. Making it fast and easy means you’re much more likely to do it.

  3. Vary Your Themes
    Try to capture the day’s events in a single photo. Perform photographic experiments. Take a photo of someone new you meet, something you ate for the first time, or something you just learned how to do. Take a photo of something that made you smile. And don’t forget to take a photo of yourself at least once a month so you can remember how you’ve changed, too.

  4. Tell a Story
    Use your blog entry, or your photo description, to explain what’s going on in each day’s photograph. How good did that dinner taste? What made you want to take a photo of that stranger? It’ll help you remember down the road, and it gives friends following along a better appreciation of why you took the photo you did. You don’t need to write a lot, just enough to add some color.

  5. Don’t Stop, No Matter What
    This is perhaps the most important tip of all. You will get tired of taking a photo every single day. Some days, you will consider giving up. Don’t. The end result is worth the effort. Remind yourself why you wanted to do it in first place.

    There will be times you’ll think there’s nothing interesting left to take a photo of, and times you’ll think you didn’t do anything exciting enough to take a photo of. There’s always a great photo to be made.

    Get out of the house and take a walk. Or stay inside and look around. Take a photo of something important to you. Take a photo of the inside of your house so you can see how your taste has changed over the years. Take a photo of anything, just don’t stop.

    N.b. It helps if you’ve told your friends about the project and asked them to follow along. Their encouragement will keep you going!

  6. Post early, post often
    Plan on going through and posting your photos at least once a week so you don’t get backlogged and feel overwhelmed. Ideally, post every day or two. Again, spend the time up front to make sure it’s quick and easy to post. It’ll make all the difference.
