About Me

My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

guimaras: villa igang's colors of dawn


Steadfast
muted colors of dawn

While the rest are still in dreamland (and some others just about to hit the sack), we are already up and about, wandering the resort grounds at 3 in the morning. I am not really sure how much sleep I got but I was pretty desperate to find a "sunrise POV".

guimaras: villa igang's sunset cave


Sunset Cave

Imagine this: a great cavern, facing the sunset, a few steps from your villa. Its cool crystal clear waters soothing your tired and sunburnt body after a day of island hopping.

iloilo: molo church (st. anne parish) - the feminist church


Molo Church (Parish of St. Anne)

In front of Molo's plaza stands an architectural gem whose red spires tower over the Iloilo skyline. The spires, one of the symbols associated with Iloilo, are so distinctive you can even spot them from the nearby island of Guimaras on a clear day.

guimaras: villa igang's inviting charm


Perfect Time for a Morning Dip

Scenic rocky coves, caves, a small lake, different species of mangroves, and rich marine life: these are just some of the charms that leave one enthralled in Villa Igang. Tucked in a rocky cove in the town of Nueva Valencia, Villa Igang is the perfect secluded place for a quiet getaway.

iloilo: miagao church, looking beautiful amidst repairs


Miag-ao Church: Under Maintenance
Miagao's barouque church

The Miagao Church, with it coral stone walls glowing in the early morning sun, still looks grand even with the scaffolding. This impressive 212 year old architectural treasure, constructed in 1786 and finished in 1797, has every right to be considering that it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Baroque Churches of the Philippines).

escape to iloilo and guimaras


Exploring Guimaras
a sandbar in Igang in Guimaras

I managed to squeeze in, before the rush of the holidays, a trip to Iloilo and the island province of Guimaras last weekend. My wife, together with two of our friends, flew in from Davao while I took the first flight from Manila. I was excited to plant my feet again on my father's home province after more than 2 decades.
