Archive for December 2009

We only have a few hours left before we say goodbye to good old year 2009 and welcome the year 2010. My previous year has been a roller coaster ride of happy and not-so desirable things that I will forever keep in my memories.

There are a couple of things that I need to leave behind to face the coming year with positive thoughts and strong energy. I think almost everyone of us experience the dilemma of nostalgia as the year ends. We feel mixed emotions of loneliness and excitement as we are about to face another phase in life.

I just hope that everyone will have a wonderful year ahead. Happiness is a choice. It's a matter of how we look on things. If we want to live a life full of positive energies and environment, we have to appreciate even the small good things to feel our worth.

May all of us have a prosperous and healthy new year!

We were at SM City Clark just a while ago for the Pyrolympics Fireworks display which was held at the mall's parking lot. And since I have my new Nikon D3000 DSLR with me, we decided to do test shots.

Unfortunately, I am not yet aware of the different manual settings of the camera in different light situations so my fireworks photography set turned out to be not that favorable to a photography critique's eyes. Also, I didn't use a tripod that is why the output were kind of shaky and grainy.

Next time, I will try to get better shots and I will consult the experts, too regarding the proper settings and adjustments. Here are some of my shots:

Hi there, I will be offline most of the day since a couple of friends have invited me to go to Manila and buy stuff for the Holiday party. I also decided to buy myself a gift - my dream Nikon D3000 DSLR camera.

I took this chance to buy it since it is way cheaper in Manila compared to the stores here in Pampanga. I think it will save me about $80 which is a lot and I can even use that in buying presents for my nieces and nephews.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your weekend and pray for a safe trip for me as well. =)

This is the most wonderful time of the year. Where every family celebrate together and cherish the meaning of Christmas. Our tradition mostly involves celebrating Christmas as a one family, eating together and going to church together.

Let us not forget that this day, our salvation was brought into our world to redeem mankind. With that, let us commemorate and thank our Saviour for rewarding us with such blessings.

I hope you are all having a great time today. Send my regards to your families and friends. Merry Christmas everyone!

All the best,

A couple of friends and I agreed to have a joy ride yesterday since we all have nothing to do at home. One of my friends offered his ride. We went all over the streets of Angeles city and San Fernando. Then, we dropped by at a convenience store in North Luzon expressway near Mexico after which we strolled inside Lakeshore, one of Pampanga's famous luxurious subdivision and event center. Lakeshore is well-known for its light house and man-made lake. Here are some pictures.

Christmas lonely feeling, nostalgiaI woke up late today because I needed to finish a lot of pending projects last night. The day kind of felt strange to me because I felt nostalgic and suddenly craved for Christmas. Memories kept on flashing back in mind especially the happy ones during my childhood. I can't explain it but I am experiencing the feeling of homesickness as well (I am at my home, for your information. Strange isn't it?).

Well, just to deviate my thoughts (or I probably scratched the itch, haha), I quickly turned on my PC and downloaded some of my favorite Christmas songs - Jose Mari Chan hits. I transferred some on my music player, put on my headsets and maximized the volume. Now I am more relaxed and composed.

We were at Marquee Mall last weekend with a couple of friends. Actually, I often go to the malls during weekend as one way for me to treat myself and shake away stresses and fatigue. Marquee, by the way is the newest Ayala Mall and it is the first here in Central Luzon.

Anyway, I just want to share this cool ride that we saw in front of the mall's entrance. I kind of freaked out when I saw the headlights - because they are not lights; they are LCD monitors! Can you believe that? It's like a pimped ride from the famous MTV show.
