Mount Guiting-guiting (2,058 meters above sea level) sits in the middle of Sibuyan Island (some 700 kilometers south of Manila) in the province of Romblon. It derives its name from the word “guiting” which, in the local language, means the teeth of the saw. The saw-like peaks of the mountain are so treacherous that no human, including the indigenous Mangyan tribe who lived this mountain for centuries, has explored the mountain ranges. This made Mount Guiting-guiting famous. It’s the sour […]
With proper wastewater treatment, commercial and industrial facilities participate in responsible and environmentally sound wastewater disposal. In this aerial drone photo, we took images of a wastewater treatment facility in Pampanga. Wastewater treatment is a process of removing organic matter and other contaminants. Chemical plants, as well as cities, purify water from chemicals, sewage, and floodwater. Its main goal is to clean wastewater to the level that it can be discharged back to the environment that is safe to […]
Long shadows formed late in the afternoon at Pinaglaban Shrine (also, The Spirit of Pinaglabanan), in San Juan City. While doing my regular practice flying the drone one afternoon, I noticed the long shadows created by the the setting sun. I hovered my drone above the Shrine to observe the activities of the people below. This lone jogger caught my attention as the only moving element in the scene. I waited for the right moment to press the shutter on […]
Sohoton Island, is a paradise tucked somewhere in Buca Grande Island, Surigao del Norte. It’s in a cluster of islands that sits right next to the famous island Siargao Island. It may be a lesser known destinations, but it provides respite to weary souls. The place is barely reached by internet, mobile phone, television and radio signals. Staying in the cove disconnects a traveller from the noise of the world. How ironic. When the world is so connected, as we […]

Some dreams become real. Other dreams remain as dreams. I once had a dream (or shall we call it, fantasy) that one day I will have a book in Malacañan. Hopefully, this book records even a tiny part of our country’s history. This book, The Journey of Malampaya Phase 3 Project, fulfills my dream. This is a lesson on how thoughts become a reality. I got the biggest surprise in my life when I received a Viber message from Chiqui […]
Mario, since his younger days, has had a restless mind. This flows in his activities. He hardly stays put. He explores many things. Many times he discovers things. At other times, it leads to disaster, like electrocution, minor burns, falling from heights, and bone fractures. But his mind never stops. He creates anything out of nothing without fear. He loves to tinker with things. Creates toys and objects about anything. Try out adventures that at times lead to disaster. But […]
Early this week, I had a chance encounter with a controversial figure during a photo assignment in the person of Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa, the current Chief of Philippine National Police. Born in Barangay Bato, Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur, he graduated from Mindanao State University with Bachelor of Science in Public Administration. He proceeded to enter the Philippine Military Academy and graduated in 1986. He earned his Masters Degree and Ph.D. in Development Administration from University of Southern Philippines […]
The 21st Graphic Expo 2016 adopted the theme Filipino Creativity Fuses with Disruptive Technologies. This event is disruptive to say the least. New technologies year in and year out are shown in this event. I remember in the early inception of Graphic Expo when digital imaging is just breaking into the market. At that time, there were many skeptics about the technology. But today, everything is digital. Those who did not believe in digital printing have embraced the technology. Disruption […]
