Manila Bulletin TRAVEL May 2008

It’s always nice to see some of your works published in print media whether big or small. On today’s issue of Manila Bulletin TRAVEL, they have a feature on Travel Photography 101. They got to interview the likes of George Tapan, Ronald Jayme, as well as Photobloggers like Anton, Eric, Markku and me as well. It also has a solo feature on Ivan Henares and other interesting article. It’s a pretty nice issue. Here, I’m sharing the tips I wrote there on taking Travel Photos.

Climbing Mount Daguldol with Columbia Sportswear

Descending the Summit

Descending the Summit of Mt Daguldol

Now that summer is here, I know a lot of people would be doing what might be the hardest pre-traveling activity which is – packing and deciding which clothes to wear and take. I myself spend some time considering what set of clothes to pack depending on the number of days and travel destination. In the few set of clothes I bring, most of them are light, comfortable and functional. With functional, meaning it can take on the elements and dry quickly while remaining sensibly fashionable. One of the outdoor apparel brands which has this functional qualities is Columbia Sportswear. And just these weekend, Kenrich International, the local distributor of the brand, invited me along with fellow bloggers, Nina, Phoebe, AJ and Jayvee at the trails of Mt Dagulgol to put their outdoor clothes line and gears to a test.


Desktop Free View

iRonnie of I Set no Corner created a very cool meme called “Desktop Free View“. And I was tagged by Cheh with this.

iRonnie says,

Most people spend a considerable amount of time in customizing or in finding a desktop wallpaper that suits their taste. Sadly, our computers often remains… personal. Why don’t we brag to the world our good-find wallpapers and let them have a peek to our personality via our desktops?

Well here’s my current desktop. I don’t usually have a lot of icons on my desktop except for some new files I would watch like the current Bleach and Naruto episodes which I would soon move on their own folders. I get a lot of my wallpapers over at Deviant Art, which has a lot of great artist and artworks I really like.


My Desktop Free View Instruction:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. 😀

You can do a screen capture by: [1] Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key). [2] Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V). [3] If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

The face behind the blog

Ferdz at Ayala Museum

Most recent picture of me, taken at Ayala Museum during the CCP (Camera Club of the Philippines) exhibit August 25 2007. I look so serious don’t I? Hahaha. Self portrait taken with my Sony Ericsson K800i. The photo on the back was taken by CCP member Jhonny Cruz

Bulaga! Hahaha. Anyways, I was tagged by Mousey and Cheh for this The Face Behind the Blog meme which was started by David Airey guy. Well as much as I don’t like to put my pictures here as I think the pictures of scenery is more appealing (hehehe) I guess I have to give in to this one once in a while. But hey, I already have some pics in my About Page and Portfolio.

I’m not tagging anyone for this one as I’m too lazy right now to post some links. If you feel like doing this meme. Go ahead! 😛

Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Meme

Cosmo’s World and 8 random facts

Cosmo’s World Theme Park Largest indoor amusement park in the world

Cosmo’s World Theme Park Largest indoor amusement park in the world

Got a quick fun post here to answer a pending meme and still feature another travel attraction. I know it should be raining a lot these days but it isn’t. Aside from the afternoon short burst of rains, water levels are still at critical level and the morning to afternoon heat is just unbearable nowadays. That’s why browsing through some photos of my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, I saw some pictures of Cosmo’s World Theme Park. It’s is dubbed as the largest indoor amusement park in th world. Boy wouldn’t it be great if we have one here? A park with controlled air con temperature and no worries about the rain?
