May Kwento Ako #46 : The lady who sang the best version of "I did it my way"

This blog is my homage to a friendship.  A year had gone by so fast. I had grown accustomed to your text messages at 7:00AM, asking if we could talk. Almost every morning, I still half expect that text message from you. Each call was always fun and a learning experience for both. A chanceContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #46 : The lady who sang the best version of "I did it my way"”

May Kwento Ako #19 : Obi

HeContinue reading “May Kwento Ako #13 : BOEUCC, a Milanese Classic”

May Kwento Ako #8 : La Bicycleta

I noticed that there are so many bicycles here than in any continent.  We, Asians tend to keep our bicycles inside our homes lest they’d be stolen. Thanks also, to the cleaner air, environment and lack of congestion, I suppose.  People here are so lucky to be able to do this.

May Kwento Ako #3 : My 1st Indie Film.

One cold morning, in a distant yet mystical land, a beautiful couple wed.  The views were spectacular.  The architecture old but solid. Noticed lots of “tears of joy” shed. I was happy for them.  And happy for the opportunity to capture and create my first short film.
