My green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) photo featured at the Tubbataha Reef 25th Anniversary Exhibit

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Tubbataha Reef’s declaration as a world heritage site. I consider myself proud and honored to be one of the contributing underwater photographers participating in a roving photo exhibit around Ayala Malls.

Above is my photo of the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) taken during my 2011 Tubbataha charter trip on board the HCA. I would like to thank WWF Philippines and the Tubbataha Management Office for this honor.

Through the photo exhibit, WWF and TMO aim to promote the Tubbataha experience and highlight the importance of protecting our Tubbataha Reefs and help raise funds to build a new Tubbataha Ranger Station, which will better protect this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our Bacolod Wedding

Bacolod Suppliers:
Flowers and Table Arrangements: Beng Picart Villanueva
Catering: Tizon’s (buffet) Calea (wedding cakes) Aida’s (chicken inasal) The Lacson Mansion (brick oven pizza) Virgie’s (Giveaways)
Coordinator: Cat Regalado

3.3.12. Our wedding day.

Due to requests from friends and relatives wanting photos of our wedding details, I decided to put them up here. Our wedding ceremony was held at Sta. Clara Church with the reception following at the Lacson Mansion, which is the ancestral house of the family (from my father’s side). We turned the Mansion into a garden of treats where our guests could experience “a day in Bacolod” in one venue. We didn’t have a wedding cake — we had 13 cakes from Calea. đŸ™‚

THREE =)

Ananya just turned three (and time flies very fast!). RIght now she’s in her McDonald’s phase and in the tradition of happy childhood memories, a children’s party at McDonald’s is a staple achievement. I never had one when I was a kid (which explains a lot, JK!). So after booking the place (McDonald’s Festival Mall at Filinvest) and choosing the Disney Princess theme, all we did was sit back and relax. Really.

Parting shot: This is her singing her latest favorite, Bad Romance.

The Talisay Ruins: My Ancestral Home

p1020448

Finding the words to describe a piece of history that defines your roots isn’t an easy thing to write about. Believe me, I’ve slaved over a blank screen with my cursor blinking impatiently, urging me to write down words. And I guess there really is no better way to talk about the Talisay Ruins in a more intimate fashion than to tell a story.
