1. Summertime in Manila: Blue Skies and Scorching Heat.

    These photos are from 2012. I realized I haven’t walked around the city for a long time since I started my preparations for something so there.

     
  2. Chinese New Year 2014

    Binondo, Manila

     
  3. Chinese New Year Photowalk 2014

    A Program at the Plaza of Binondo, an afternoon blast off with dancing Lions and Dragons. This kicks Chinese New Year Photowalk 2013’s ass, which was uneventful.

    Thank you to the people who joined us this year! Looking forward to the next Jaywalkersph event.

     
  4. These kids stole the show at Ongpin last Chinese New Year.

  7. Million People March 8/26/2013
    Quirino Grandstand, Manila

    This is not your usual protest. The count was 400,000 people attended. Usual faces during protests, first time to attend a protest and some attended their last protest when President Estrada was ousted from Malacanang.

    Some of them are the usual protesters with flags, effigies and their fists in the air.

    Some are students from the grossly underfunded Public Schools and State Universities.

    Some are private school students automatically paying 12% VAT on every item they buy.

    Some are medical workers from Underfunded Public Hospitals.

    Some are from the posh and gated villages paying business, income and real estate taxes from what they own and earn to the government.

    Some are from the middle class, paying so many taxes and contribution of government services, saving a little for themselves and the families they raise.

    Some are from the poor, those who badly need the care of the government.

    All Filipinos from all walks of life were represented in this protest and is rallying for a single cause: the abolition of the Pork Barrel in any name or mean and the prosecution of those who misused the public funnds. This is the biggest and the strongest protest so far in the Aquino Administration and the most memorable and significant commemoration of the National Heroes Day Holiday so far, in living memory.

    The real battle has began. The Executive Department already submitted the Proposed 2014 Budget with the PDAF (Pork Barrel) still in the details, and we, as taxpayers and the Filipino People must see to it that the taxes, the nation’s budget is well appropriated and well spent. The deliberations on the 2014 Budget is ongoing.

    If the Rizal Statue could talk, what is his reaction on this happening in front of him?

  9. Design of Street Lamps at the Govantes Bridge

    Looks very Vigan, made locally and more classy compared to the “Lollipop” streetlights we have in Metro Manila right now.

    Vigan City, Ilocos Sur

     
  10. These are some of the Instagram Prints the I (and all of the participants) got from last Wednesday’s InstaMuros Instawalk. I hope all participants enjoyed the many many souvenirs we handed to them! We also enjoyed organizing JaywalkersPH’s very first Mobile Photography oriented event.

  11. Instamuros Shots

    I had these shots for the InstamurosMNL yesterday. Among the 18 shots uploaded, these are my favorites. This is my favorite spot in the Walled City, the Plaza Roma.

    To view my whole InstaMurosMNL sets, visit my Instagram (you can also follow me).

     
  12. The Lawton area might be packed with people tomorrow so I think it would be nice to bring you diversion routes for tomorrow. This will be a long walk because some road will be closed. Please refer to this link for a closer view! Or save the photo above.

    Route 1 - From LRT Carriedo

    Route 2 - From Quiapo Church

    Route 3 - From LRT Central Terminal.

    The nearest landmark to the start of Instamuros is Letran.

     
  13. At the top of the Tandang Sora-Luzon Flyover, Quezon City

    I sneaked at the top of Tandang Sora - Luzon Flyover, and these are the views found at the top of the said Flyover.

    The Tandang Sora - Luzon Flyover connects the South Tandang Sora Avenue and Luzon Flyover. The flyover serves as the C5-Commonwealth interchange and a part of the C-5 North Extension by the MNTC.

    Photos taken last February.

     
  14. I now confess, I made the Final Challenge for Juandering in Manila 2.0 Filipino Chinese Friendship Arch Station. Unlike the first Juandering that has 10 stations, now we have only 9 stations.

    I designed the final station challenge to be as time consuming (worth 2 stations): wide coverage area and hard challenge. But I think only 5 teams got this far.

    First Row: Art Noveau

    Second Row: Filipino Hispanic

    Third Row: Modern - COntemporary
