Kiltepan View Point | Sunrise watching in Sagada

Welcome, 2015! To welcome the new year, I went on an adventure trip to Sagada! And one of the highlights of the trip was watching the sunrise at Kiltepan View Point.

Sagada, a little town up north in Mountain Province, Luzon, is such an amazing and beautiful place. First-timers like me will be awed with its natural beauty. I took so many pictures, so I will be dividing my blog posts into several parts.

There are so many things to do in Sagada, and they don’t necessarily have to cost much. Sunrise watching is definitely free! Kiltepan View Point is one of the best places to view the sunrise, so that’s where we (my sis, my niece and I) planned to spend the early morning of Day 3 of our Sagada trip. (As you can see, my posts won’t be chronologically ordered.) Continue reading Kiltepan View Point | Sunrise watching in Sagada

My Hope for the New Year

I know this is late. This post has been on draft since the 1st, but, as usual, life has gotten in the way…


Sunrises never fail to give me an awed feeling. I shot this photo on our way back to Manila from Baguio. We left Baguio at 5 AM and the sun was just rising as we reached the lowlands.

Like the sunrise, may this new year bring peace, rejuvenation and hope for better things.

I received this inspiring email a few days ago, and I’d like to share it with you. This is my earnest hope for myself, my loved ones and friends this year:

“May there be peace within.

May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.

May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content with yourself just the way you are.”

My mantra: This is a good year. 🙂

Saturday Photo Hunt: Curved

UPDATE: So. This post is so last week. This was the theme LAST week! Thanks, witsandnuts, for pointing that out to me. This is one huge senior moment. 😀

Today’s theme on Photo Hunters is Curved.

There was a time when my kids and I were so enthralled with our then-newly installed fishtank and its inhabitants. For a while I, a fishirazzi, stalked with my camera and shot incessantly at them.

I don’t think fish will ever get used to living in an aquarium –  the moment they see me hovering close by with that silver clicking thing, they’d all swim away, and take cover under leaves or logs. When I finally got the settings on my camera right, I was able to capture their fluid albeit fast movements.

The white-and-orange shubunkin with its curved tail fin was one of my favorites. Unfortunately it has since passed away. The orange shoobie on the right, though, is still alive and kicking swimming up to this very day.
