Last weekend, me and girlfriends went out of town. My friend Jek, invited us to join her to unwind and get out of the metro even just for 2 days. We packed our bags and went to Bataan. Good thing Jek was able to book a room for us for overnight stay. Just 2-3 hours away from Manila, you will be able to experience a historical adventure.
Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar
is a museum, resort and attraction combined. If you want to escape chaos just for awhile, this place is perfect for you.
and here are some of the photos I took when we ride bike to explore the entire place.
We had so much fun and I’m sure that we will be back for more.
I am writing this blog in behalf of my Filipino countrymen. Collate most of the needed images I saw from Facebook that can extend possible help to the victims of typhoon particularly in the Eastern part of the Visayas.

Anj and I are very good friends way back when I was working in BPO industry so when I heard the news that she and her long time boyfriend is getting married, I got excited. We both agreed that I will cover her Save the date shoot. She told me that she want it to be simple and fun. Location for this shoot was at University of the Philippines, Diliman.
Last October 05, me and my photo buddies joined 6th Scott Kelby WorldWide Photowalk. We choose to participate with Tilak Hettige again for the second time and location was at Roxas Blvd., which a pretty great location for photowalk.
