Soak in Sunshine

August 15, 2017 0

There are times in life where clichés are vested with emotions to change moments to something not of the ordinary. I haven’t been myself lately, I know. I have thousands of images left in my hard drive that are untouched. One day I would wake up and tell myself “oh I should write about my trip to blah… blah… blah…” and at the end of the day I ended up not doing it.

In a day I always end up daydreaming when I scroll through my Instagram feed. I would tell myself whenever I see a photo uploaded by my friends or social media superstars, that place is beautiful, I have been there awhile back. And this would cause me to remember that I haven’t really shared those photos in my own space.

These days I have been clouded by my doubts maybe because of some emotional turmoil that had happened to me leaving me causing me to take a step back and just figure out myself. I’m in a state of constant learning, constant gain of self-growth. The ability to realize my own flaws and be responsible for them.

My passion for creative images gave me the nudge to create, edit and write again in my website. Looking back at some of the photos that I had in Coron, Palawan gives me soaked in memories of the time I was there. I guess it isn’t that bad posting it like a throwback. It gives me nostalgic moments. Raw and essential. These photos makes me want to travel back to Palawan and experience Palawan in another dimension. Perhaps just alone, do things that are quite pass my comfort zone. Talking to strangers, make new friends. Experience life.

Life Progress

May 4, 2017

Life in progress.The most questions that I’ve been asked over the past few weeks are something like this: Where have you been lately? (Right here, buried in readings), Are you studying? (Yes with dedication studying Masters Degree in Marketing Communication in University of Santo Tomas) Are you working? (Indeed I am).

Life happens so fast. It can change in an instant once decisions have been made. I miss the good old days of blogging as often as I can thus I used my recovery time these days to edit some photos and publish a worthy blog post from the heart. These first set of photos from Sweden was taken nearby a house from Robert’s best friend. The fresh air and seafoam grass emphasize how beautiful the city is. A lot was asking me why I haven’t published as often as before in my website. Simplest answer that I could say their sister, life happened.

Student life as I may say is compelling and challenging. Not only I created connection to my intellectual understanding, but also I cultivated new friendships that I can treasure with for a long time.

Juggling various commitments in working consultancy sidelines as well as creative gigs, having a regular full time job at Float Swimwear and the last but not certainly not the least my Masters Degree which covers immediate assignments to be passed as always. That’s a lot to take in just by writing but thankfully accomplishing it step by step.

Moving on for the past few weeks all I could think about when I was sitting at work was how much sleep could I take in at night when I get home however it was a luxury for me to get 4 hour sleep last month. But this week is a lot fairer my routine is slowly getting back to its pace. Carpe Diem.

For the longest time that I couldn’t write any, this space has always been my personal and creative outlet. I write and speak whatever I have always been passionate about. The color grading for all my photos has been one of my creative obsession wherein I would spend hours on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop just to get the right color tone for each photo. And certainly it progressed in time, I hope. You decide.

Summer is currently happening but I could no longer place myself on beach worthy Instagram photos since I need to stay on top of assignments and research papers (finals coming through) without a doubt hold priority above anything else. So summer should be spent somewhere else as I say to myself.

The rise of the cacophony of Instagram stars curating different photos of their everyday lives gave me more inspiration to be more creative. When Flight Vintage began there wasn’t that much of mobile phones with increasingly good specification features that could generate DSLR worthy type of photos. Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter gave the platform of editorial worthy features of photos to be served to the eyes of the millennial generation. Thus giving me the idea of why not change the name of my website to something more me as I have truly evolved in the ever changing times. Any thoughts?

El Nido Palawan

February 1, 2017

Travelling around Palawan gave me the realization that indeed Philippines possess one of the most beautiful beaches. El nido is on top of my list last year and I’m very well pleased that I have visited the islands of El Nido.


Hong Kong MTR

January 18, 2017 0


Upon stepping foot to Hong Kong, the dichotomy of living has grown on me. The walks to the Hong Kong MTR everyday gave my memory an upgrade to remember all the letters in each the exit. The myriad of different shopping malls gives my thought process that I can only buy a few things and totally not allowed to have a cart blanche of shopping free.


Explore Gothenburg (Summer)

Gothenburg (Göteborg), Sweden has its certain charm that draws me in. The Neo-classical architectural design gave me romantic daydreams while roaming around the city and you will too.
