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.

cebu: tropical sunset under the bridge


Under the Bridge

I try hard not to miss any sunrise or sunset when I am traveling. These are the only two times in a day when you see the place in its "Sunday best". Even if the weather looks unpromising, unless its raining cats and dogs, I always head out.

lake sebu: t'nalak weaving


Lake Sebu T'nalak (Dreamweaver) 

If there is anything that can be considered as the centerpiece of the art and culture of the T’boli tribe in Mindanao, it would be the T’nalak cloth. Though the T’bolis are also skillful in other crafts such as embroidery, brass casting, malong weaving, T’nalak weaving has become most popular art form because it’s the one that’s unique to the tribe.

ma fil: lake sebu's hegalong (hegelung) master


Ma Fil Angkoy

High up in the mountains in Brgy Tasiman is an Ubo long house overlooking Lake Sebu. The host is an unassuming fellow named Ma Fil Angkoy (half T’boli and half Ubo), but you’ll realize why Ma Fil (or Mafil) is popular in Lake Sebu once you put a hegalong (or hegelung), a 2 string ethic guitar, on his hands.
