Weekend Nature Escapade

I spent the weekend chasing waterfalls with my friend. Here are some shots from our escapade.

All photos were taken using my Samsung S5 phone. 🙂

The Sunrise Series

I love taking photos of sunrise. I love looking at the sky as it changes colors. I have yet to see a more beautiful thing in my life. To me, sunrise is the most beautiful thing.

I took these photos yesterday and I wanted to share it to the world. I hope you enjoy it.

I don't know these people but I was too lazy to leave the tent so I took this photo instead.

I may not know them but I would like to thank them for adding beauty to this photo.

This is my favorite. I have never seen the sky in this color before.

Weekend Wanderings: Celestial Gardens

To be honest, I don’t think this place was made for sightseeing. Considering the graves neatly lined in this vast place, it is evidently a memorial park. This did not stop me from exploring the place though.

Please don’t get me wrong, I mean no disrespect to the dead. In fact, I envy them. No, I don’t envy their dead state, I envy their view. The dearly departed seemed to have the best view of the city. Now, i feel like a loser 

I mean, just look at this view!

Now, do you agree with me? Trust me, the dead has a better view than I have. Imagine waking up to that view everyday (not that they will wake up) and seeing the sunrise with Cebu city’s skyline. It would be awesome.

This is not the only thing you can see in this place though. When my internet connection is better, I’ll post the other photos. For now, I hope you enjoy the view.

Temple of Leah: A Monument of Love

Often when someone tells you they will build you a castle as a symbol of their undying love, they do not mean that literally. Well, here in Cebu, someone did just that. He didn’t build a castle for his one true love, he built her a temple.

I have often been skeptical about undying love. I have always questioned the possibility of loving someone forever. Well, seeing the scale and grandeur of the Temple of Leah made me think that maybe, just maybe, there really is such a thing as forever.

With its greek-inspired architecture and intricate designs, the whole place looked like a movie set. It makes you momentarily forget you’re still in the Philippines. When I visited the place, a large part is still under construction but it already looked timeless.

What a way to show your love! When you see the magnificent view, the sculptures and the artistic design of the place, you can’t help but be amazed.

Imagine the time, effort and money it took to build this temple of love? The goddesses of Olympus must be jealous.

Here’s a sampling:

So next time you visit Cebu City, don’t forget to visit this place. See it for yourself!

Love, Baguio

I loved Baguio even before I saw the place. I’ve been there on various times and I still want to keep going back. Here are some photos taken the last time I was there.

image

Session Road. For the many times I visited this place, this was the first time I actually took a photo of it. I love this part of Baguio. The busy street, the beautiful facades and the people walking to and fro with their boots and thick jackets.

image

Mines View Park. One of Baguio's most famous attractions. The place is quite crowded so I really prefer going there in the early morning when there are still few tourists milling around. The cold, soft breeze and this awesome view is enough to calm me down.
