After waiting in the airport for 7 long hours “Due to technical problems, Sea Air said”.. finally we touched down to Batanes, Island paradise of the Philippines.
1st destination is at the “Marlboro Country”. We ate lunch and was introduced to the magnificent view of Batanes.
Left and right you see spectacular views! I missed the place now.
The weather was quite fair, cool breeze but no blue skies. Its ok il definitely return to this beautiful province. 😉

Who said digital is cheaper?
Another 1TB in my WD family of My Books total of 3TB . This time i bought the green boxed WD which is the USB only model. This is P1,600 cheaper and it will only serve as my Time Machine HD.
Also, i upgraded my e71’s micro SD card to 4gb. I noticed it slower to respond.
Oh well living hi-tech is not cheap 😉
Saw an interesting view inside PEMC. Taken by the mighty LX3 and my own Infra Red effect in Lightroom.
Last tuesday, i judged a photo contest in Ortigas for the WESM – PEMC (Philippines Electricity Market Corporation) photo contest. Entries were taken by PEMC employees. I was invited by a good award winning fellow PiPho Org member Orlee Ninon.
the conference table full of 8×12 prints
I judged the contest together with Mrs. Huang, Wawi Navarozza and another fellow PiPho Org and past president Raffy Yllana. The other team of Judges were from PEMC President Mr Holapainen & VP Mr. Pangilinan.
I was impressed by some photographs since they maximized all what they have, note mentioning some decent point and shoot shots.
