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 […]

April 2, 2012

Arrived, safe and sound! Famil­iar land­scapes,… famil­iar smells,… famil­iar food!!! Yum! It’s always cus­tom­ary for the trav­ellers to be greet­ed with a nice home cooked meal and sure­ly that’s what my Dad and I came to when we arrived at my aunt’s house after a two-hour com­mute from the air­port. The meal was so good […]

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 […]

mddpho­tog­ra­phy takes its first over­seas assign­ment in the Philip­pines! Last sum­mer, my father reunit­ed with his first cousins after 40 years (can you believe that?!), as these rel­a­tives decid­ed to vis­it Toron­to. This meet­ing was just the tip of the ice­berg. One of these cousins, Cora, had been start­ing a fam­i­ly tree, which appar­ent­ly was […]
