View from IRRI's Canteen: Pila Delights

This is a picture on my first visit to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) at Los Baños, Laguna for the year 2011. It was a fine day and who will not love the bright, blue sky.

I had a satisfying brunch at IRRI's popular Pila Delights canteen.

Independence Day Celebration at Luneta Park

It is a pleasure to have been at the Luneta Park during the celebration of Philippine Independence Day last 2010. I just wish I had a better camera during my first time at the park.

Starfish Track in Batangas

Took this picture of a starfish track at a beach in San Juan, Batangas (near the more popular place Laiya). This is also the place where I first saw starfishes camouflaged on the beach sand.

Christmas Decoration at Rustan's Ayala

This is just one of lavish window decorations in Rustan's Ayala for 2010 Christmas Season. Who can not notice a place like this glowing at night in Ayala Avenue, Makati City?

Obviously, the decoration was sponsored by the banking company Citibank.

Flower at Camp John Hay

This is a photo of a flower taken near Manor Hotel at Camp John Hay in Baguio City.

The flower's yellow color proves that the plant is really alive considering that it only grows from a hole at the side of an asphalt road.

Mount Makiling View from Los Baños Bayan

This is the view of Mt. Makiling from Los Baños Bayan. Picture was taken near Laguna Lake near the back of Los Baños Municipal Hall.

Reodique-Pacleb Nuptial at Camp Atienza Officers Club

Caught this split-second moment at their wedding.

It's a pleasure to be invited as one of the groomsmen at Myra Pacleb & Gilbert Reodique's nuptial at Quezon City. It was raining during that time but it seems the heaven has blessed the day for them. The rain stopped at the right time when we were to march for the ceremony. The ceremony was both solemn and joyful. It seems I can't get over with the joy I felt for the couple.

The reception was in Camp Atienza Officers Club.

Ate Myra is a very warm Ate and Kuya Gilbert a very kind Kuya. :)

Wild Flower in Ilagan

This is just another picture of a wild flower I found in Ilagan, Isabela. Who cannot notice it if it's purple color made it stand out from the greeneries around it?

Irene in the Office

This picture of my office mate, Irene, is taken at the office (What's the odd?). The white (or dirty white) wall emphasized the green color of the locally produced fan and hat.

The two accessories were perfect as Filipiniana costume on Orange and Bronze Software Labs's 2010 Christmas Party.

Mushroom on a Hill in Ilagan

Just came across this tiny mushroom while hill-hopping with my siblings near our home in Ilagan, Isabela. The transistor-looking thing on the background is a water tank which was part of a now-demolished lodge in the area.

Lamp at Oh My Gulay! Art Gallery and Restaurant

Just a lamp at Oh My Gulay! restaurant in Baguio City. The bright yellow color of it surely draws anyone's attention.

This photo is not enough to show the artworks you can see at their art gallery. The restaurant serves vegetarian food by the way.
