Sometimes, we focus our lenses so far to capture the landscape and forget that people also make places interesting.

Lost in Ligao City!

Doing school work in summer has its perks. Yesterday, my classmates and I went out to conduct our MD Research and we decided to take it as an opportunity to visit a new place.

Luckily, we finished our tasks early, leaving more time for our escapade. On our way to Kawa-kawa hill in Ligao City, bright sunflowers along the road welcomed us. We had been told that growing sunflowers during the summer season is a tradition in this place.

19 Some 40 minutes later (we were driving from Tabaco City), we finally arrived at the foot of Kawa-kawa hill. This place is actually famous for its “larger than life” Stations of the Cross and many tourists come here specifically during the holy week.

Kawa-kawa hill stands 236 meters; however the path towards the crater is approximately 500 meters. It wasn’t a very tiring walk though because the path is paved and there’s just too much to see along the way. The crater’s rim is another 836-meter walk and anywhere you stand, the hill has a good view to offer.    20 The peak of Mt. mayon is also visible from Kawa-kawa and it’s just amazing how Mt. Mayon seems to change its color as the sun starts to set. 18It was a great day for we accomplished many things and witnessed new places. The sunset view from Kawa-kawa was perfect to end the day.

Lone Trees

I have always been attracted to lone trees, as if there is this invisible line trying to connect me to them. Probably because we are the same in so many ways.

Where the dead are

Tradition is what binds the Filipino people.

While other countries celebrate Halloween, putting on their best costumes knocking on doors trick-or-tricking, the Filipinos have something different in mind. For so many countless years, Filipinos have this tradition of visiting their dead on the 1st of November. I, too, am part of this tradition for nine years now.

The cemetery atmosphere actually transforms from a creepy environment to being fiesta-like.

But this one didn’t want to lose its horror vibe.
