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.

mauban | cagbalete island: a slice of daily life at sabang


Cagbalete Island | Sabang

Clear turquoise waters and amazingly fine white sand - some of us simply can't get over Cagbalete's beauty. But for some of the folks there, its just another day in paradise. You can take the "paradise" bit in a literal sense.

mauban | cagbalete island: lowtide stroll


Cagbalete Lowtide: Friends

Cagbalete island has one of the most amazing low tide scenes. During low tide, the water recedes 800meters (up to 1km in some areas) from the shore, drying up a 3.6km stretch of white sand beach. Two of the local kids,  Billy Joe and Lawrence ( aka Momon), took us for a quick stroll one sunny afternoon.

landan | trappistine monastery: starting holy week with a family retreat


Trappistine Monastery: Fiery Sunset

A sky on fire - fiery clouds figuratively screaming strong orange hues, juxtaposed with the soothing silence of the monastery grounds. Such was our welcome when we spent a Palm Sunday weekend in the Trappistine Monastery in Polomolok.

Cagbalete: Crepuscular Rays

There is nothing that makes a place lovelier than a grand light display during sunrise or sunset. And wherever my trip is, sunrise/sunset shoot will always be in the itinerary :)

mauban | cagbalete island: revisiting paradise


Cagbalete Island - Boat Taxi

Fire up Google Earth and scour the Philippine map for small white rimmed islands - thats what a friend and I did before that led us to Cagbalete Island. Nobody was really blogging about this small gem in Lamon Bay back in 2006-2007. Off the coast of a small town in Quezon province called Mauban, its fine white sand is clearly visible in Google Earth.

singapore | chinatown: buddha tooth relic temple and museum


Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum

Singapore is a cosmopolitan city. Go downtown and you’ll know hear several languages spoken before you can walk a block.But if you want more visible examples of cultural diversity  then head Chinatown. There, along South Bridge road, are temples of three different religions, all in one street and just a short distance from each other.
