Monks at Phnom Bakheng
Who said monks are restrained by their vow of silence and abstinence of worldy pleasures? I guess times have changed. Like our modern priest and nuns, monks are no longer confined to the walls of their convents or temples. They seem to be open nowadays to explore new things and the world around them.
Monks among the tourist
I found this group of monks who seems to be tourist as well when we were waiting for the sundown at Phnom Bakheng in Angkor Archaological park. I was amused to see them carrying some cool gadgets under their brightly colored robes. To think that another word for buddhist monks are Bikkhus which means beggars, these folks have money to afford gadgets as such.
This is just a quick post since I’m quite busy organizing some things and some projects as well. Aside from refinement to my sites backbone hosting Bigskymedia.net, I’m also planning to launch a new site as a replacement for my Daily Snap. Hopefully I can launch by end of the month. Also do check out the latest issue of Philippine Airline’s Mabuhay Magazine. I’m on the Last Frame of the June (?) issue and also a shot from the Kultura photoshoot I did for them for their Travel Log section. Also I got some Vigan photos out in Mega Magazine’s June issue of Girlfriend. I haven’t seen it though. If someone have a copy could you please scan or take a shot at it and send to me please. Many thanks to my friend Dahl for hooking me up with these publications.
Video taking monks
This week I was able to shoot a private party launch for the Wine Club Makati which will have an official public launch I think this Monday. I covered for my friend for that since he wasn’t available for that day, thus me ended up rubbing elbows with the elite and high society people who I was advised were guest that night. I don’t really know them though. Hehe. Next week I have a studio shoot for an advertising material for a known foundation. So please bear with me if I’m a bit slow on updates on upcoming days and do some blog rounds. Enjoy the week people!
