Photographer Hack… the Lenspen!

​If you are using a lenspen to clean your gear's lenses, don't throw it away after the carbon-tipped disc has been quite used up. It is still useful! I use my old lenspen to clean my reading glasses, the screen of my mobile phone, and even my watch and other sort of things made of... Continue Reading →

Isaw-isaw (Grilled Chicken Intestines)

This popular street food in the Philippine is what we call the "Isaw-isaw" or plainly, a grilled chicken intestine for the un-oriented. You see, nothing is wasted in our country. We eat everything in a chicken... its head, its organs, its blood, and even its feet. And believe it or not, we call the chicken... Continue Reading →

Wag Matakot… (Don’t be afraid)

A masked vendor holding a newspaper with a headline "WAG MATAKOT", which means "Don't be afraid"! I'll let my fellow Filipinos translate what this phrase really mean in our country where scores of people are killed every day... 

Nuong bata pa ako…!

I sometimes miss these days... ... Nuong sumasabit ako sa dyip habang may sumisigaw ng "... Valiches, Novaliches"! ... Nuong umaangkas ako sa traysikel na kakalog-kalog dahil sa lubak na daan! ... Nuong sumusundot ako ng pisbol sa kalyeng mausok at maalikabok at isasawsaw sa sukang punong-puno ng naiwang pisbol na lumulutang pa! ... Nuong... Continue Reading →

Philippines: China or the USA?

Ika nga ni Ompong

From a Filipino who has seen the world…

I like China because they sell cheap alternative products. I like America because of Star Wars, Titanic, Resident Evil, and of course, The Walking Dead, my favorite TV series!

I like China because of the birthday noodles, and that delicious lariat-style cuisine. I like America because of their hotdogs and hamburgers. Let’s add Disneyland and Universal Studios theme parks that bring out the child in you.

But of course, I also don’t like certain things from China and from America but these things will not make me “hate” them. Simply put, I love China, America, India, Russia, Australia, Japan, Canada, and the rest of the world!
