May Kwento Ako #22 : A Pinoy Pitches Milan. Incredible.

      As fate would have it, in cooperation with the Philippine Italian Association (PIA) and with Dr Becky Singson, I have been invited to pitch my perspectives on Milan through my lens after an intimate dinner.

May Kwento Ako #21 : What is with Kobe Beef ? Wagyu?

We found ourselves in the fabled Kobe. Far from how I envisioned this world famous place to be, as I earlier imagined this place to be full of cows, farms and hays. With slopping terrain. Lots of grass and sunshine. No, no, no. It is a city with a Port, with hundreds, if not thousandsContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #21 : What is with Kobe Beef ? Wagyu?”

May Kwento Ako #16 : A good man is always worth patronizing.

  Some say something good happens to good people when they least expect it.  Amen! One day, upon the recommendation of a new friend, I checked out this nearby shop for its workmanship.  Upon entering, this shopkeeper-artisan entertained me straight away like an old friend.  I just said that I was just looking around aContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #16 : A good man is always worth patronizing.”

May Kwento Ako #15 : The Art of Keeping Still

In today’s world, “how does one keep still?” is a question that is on my mind often.  I am like you who has a dozen and one things to do daily.  On top of work, there are errands to get done, bills to review and pay and files that need sorting.  And, I need to keepContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #15 : The Art of Keeping Still”
