“Jesus saw Nathanael com­ing to Him, and said of him, ‘Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!’ Nathanael said to Him, ‘How do You know me?’ Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.’” –John 1: 48–49 (NASB) In my pre­vi­ous […]

Philippines 2012

April 2, 2012

As you saw in the last post, I had gone to the Philip­pines on assign­ment to cap­ture the won­der­ful reunion of cousins from my grandmother’s side from my father’s side. Hav­ing gone that far across the globe to only spend sev­en days and fly back is almost unheard of. Usu­al­ly, a three week stay is […]

Philippines 2012: Day 1

April 2, 2012

I’m going to take you through my jour­ney start­ing right from the air­port. What’s a trip with­out cap­tur­ing what you did dur­ing your stop-overs antic­i­pat­ing a 12.5hr ride to your next con­nect­ing flight?! And at least steal­ing a few snap­pies at the gate passed the time quick­ly. Toron­to Pear­son Air­port: Ter­mi­nal 1 is one of […]

The meal was so good […]

April 2, 2012

So obvi­ous­ly, Day 3 was the post about the reunion, even though it’s not titled in sequence with these ones. Hehe! The reunion was a blast and I was tru­ly priv­i­leged to have been asked to fly all the way from Toron­to to cap­ture this reunion. And now, this is Day 4. I woke up […]

Philippines 2012: Day 5

April 2, 2012

When your trip is short, you cer­tain­ly need to wake up ear­ly to get the most out of the day, right? Ask me if I still had any ener­gy by 8:00pm after all the dai­ly activities…ask me if the food was still good! There’s your answer…haha! Play­ing golf in Philip­pines is cer­tain­ly dif­fer­ent than I’ve […]

Philippines 2012: Day 6

April 2, 2012

Well, this is the last day and we’re off to see an aunt who had invit­ed us over for lunch and din­ner. Get­ting there was quite a trek as the traf­fic was nuts! Let’s say there are three lanes going in the same direc­tion, here in North Amer­i­ca. That would eas­i­ly be five (if not […]
