Where are you from?

This is the number one question that I get from people that I meet for the first time. When I first came to Norway, I did not mind people asking me questions. I understand that some people are just curious types. I do not talk too much to people that I just met. In short, I am a…

Because I Care

After a couple of days following the presidential elections in the Philippines on Facebook,  I’ve had enough. I will not say anything about which of the candidates I think should have won, because it’s the majority of the votes count in the end and don’t forget democracy. Politics is a dirty game and we all…

My First Hike

This is my take for day two’s assignment for Photo101, Street. I took this shot during my vacation in the Manila a couple of years ago. The woman was apparently waiting for the right jeepney/taxi.

Convergence

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Converge.” This is my contribution to this week’s photo challenge. This shot of this beautiful hallway was taken at St. Agustin Church in the Philippines this summer. The arcs in my opinion gave weight to the character of the church’s architecture.
