Tagum City is more than a city known for its paved roads. With 14 Festivals a year, it is surely becoming famous for its events and festivities. Davao Bloggers was fortunate enough to be invited in the 1st Official Tagum Photo Safari last January 16-17. I was excited to be with other Tagum photographers as the City’s PIO Edwin L. toured us around the precious nooks and spots of Tagum City.
The heavens shifted and the astrologists who favor the tidiness of the 12 zodiac sign must acknowledge the 13th constellation to maintain accuracy, says Betty Mattison Rhodes. Continue reading

I have not seen so many bloggers in one location until I attended the BlogFest SOCCSKSARGEN 2010 last December 11 in East Asia Royale Hotel in Gensan. And even though I could not remember my first blogpost, I could still remember why I decided to have one. It was therapeutic for me. It helps me stay put and it kills idle time. Needless to say, I blogged about — ME ME ME. But now my concept of blogging has developed into something bigger than I. And its not only me who is realizing this.
Blogs nowadays do not only contain the author’s emo moments. It now speaks of technology, tourism, politics, entertainment and more. Blogs have morphed from personal to business. And why not? Blogs create good networks and thus creates more opportunities. It can even get you a job or make self-employment easier.
It is apparent that across the globe, being online has been a part of many people’s lives. We have managed to merge our daily lives with our online personas. We engage in blog-like activities like status updates in our social networking pages and we post photos to share for our online community to see. We get news online, and sometimes, the internet is faster in delivering tidbits of what’s happened than the media. Communication has never been so easy and fast…sometimes, it beats real time.
If Hubert Webb is indeed innocent, our decadent judicial system is again proving to us how inutile it is.
But as citizens, didn’t we play a part by overlooking the fact that no proper proceedings were executed, and yet, we rallied to have this man’s head to be on the platter because we FELT, it was the right thing to do?
Had they declared him innocent before, I could imagine us rioting at the same decadent system we ridicule now.
Which makes me wonder… what makes us so expert in terms of defining justice when we cant even examine our own selves.

Do what you love…for me, is a bad career advice.
How many times we find ourselves saying it to other people?
How many times have we been fed with that cliche?
Too many to count, I guess. It has become an integrated part of our growing up.
Our seniors would often highlight their success by saying they have succeeded because they are doing what they love. Don’t believe them. They are successful because they are good at what they do.
And no, they are no more lucky than you are.
Thing is, we are complicated, multi-faceted, and our interest shifts as time goes by.
We do not only love one thing.
We love a lot of things. Continue reading
Yes, I usually have days where I just don on whatever is on the clothes rack and just paddle my way out of the house like an ugly duckling, swaddling and all. I don’t mind if I don’t wear make up or I don’t wear high heels on every party. I even smuggle my trusty havas in parties because, as we all know, high heels have a way of straining our legs and patience. But hey, women have high tolerance for pain, why do you think we end up with jerks sometimes?
I’m certified KIKAY. I love make-up, I adore shoes, and I drool over
gorgeous men handbags. I feel happy when, out of the blue, someone would say I look beautiful and healthy. I find it interesting how I look and feel different when I dress up. I get amazed at how tight dresses can make my waist smaller and my bust bustier…not that such clothing are advisable all the time, lack of oxygen due to tight wardrobe can be very dangerous. You tend to say things you don’t mean *haha.
One certified kikay thing I do is my penchant for skin cleansing kits. Not that I religiously apply them, I just like having them around. Makes me feel feminine…whatever that means. I grew up with a mom that had a salon, so I grew up seeing beautiful women strut around. I like watching women with beautiful faces. I just don’t like it when I begin to stare…they tend to get uncomfortable. Even in my photography, I like taking photos of women’s faces and features…it’s just sexy. Continue reading
