May Kwento Ako No. 48 : Buenos Aires has a modern side.

Yes! There is a modern side to Buenos Aires. A very modern side. Concrete, steel, glass. One would not guess that this hub is in the Buenos Aires that we pictured it to be. I think it is also a beautiful side. I really did not think that this place existed in this city. ItContinue reading “May Kwento Ako No. 48 : Buenos Aires has a modern side.”

May Kwento Ako #32 : I believe in the magic of Color

The gift of sight to me is very precious. Now that I am growing older, my eyes aren’t too good unlike before.

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. Initially, the thought was just just to share some of my photos taken in Milan last year.Continue reading “May Kwento Ako #22 : A Pinoy Pitches Milan. Incredible.”
