Passengers Have No White Taxis Access at NAIA 3

This weekend, a concerned Filipino, Nityalila Saulo, video-documented an instance where the guards at NAIA Terminal 3 did not allow them to get a regular taxi at the departure platform. Since the airport taxi, the yellow taxi, is queued at the arrival platform, some passengers choose to get the cheaper and regular ones.

The white taxis have a flag-down rate of 40 pesos while airport taxis charge passengers a flag-down rate of 30 pesos more on. The km-rate is also almost double as the regular ones.

If you think that it is just for MIAA to release an official memorandum on the new policy, you can sign the petition on Change.org

Warlow's True Blood: Rob Kazinsky

And so Stephen Moyer created a hybrid of a daywalk vampire when Lilith turned Ben Flynn / Macklyn Warlow into a vampire thinking he will be the salvation of vampires as he is a fey -  and yes, he is the new eye candy. Bill Compton has gone too dry being a vampire, Eric Northman is too white, mirroring the glittering pale of the moon and Alcide Herveaux has gone ass; though Sam Merlott still has it, he's a shifter, ain't he?

Typical gorgeous man: with dimpes, nice accent and messed up hair and semi-carpeted scruffy physique. Why does Sookie Sluthouse get all the hotmen?

Late if you call it but I am watchin him on Pacific Rim.

Panagbenga Festival 2013

While I was organizing my photos, I realized that I have not developed some of these which were taken when I went back to the Philippines for a short vacation. I could not remember what was the occasion, it could be that I got bored here in KL.

I asked my mother if she could come with me to Baguio since the plan to drive north to Baguio with Armel was not happening. She mentioned that we could stay in her friend's house and it all went hell that I had to immediately find a room for two as soon as we arrive in Engineer's Hill in Baguio.

Nevertheless, this is the first Philippine festival that I captured on camera. There were some that I have witnessed but I still didn't have my camera with me.

As you could see, that the Ifugao culture is very rich. It roots down to their ancestors. I would want to go to the mountains and see the Ifugao Rice Terraces first hand - maybe soon.

The intricate of design hand-woven or hand-painted were designed on their clothes and costumes struck me the most. Although I didn't have the time to take pictures of the flower gazebos and floats because it was already full of mob as the local celebrities presented themselves along the famous street of Session Road, much to my surprise after going to the market that morning with my mother, the people were already taking their places to witness the procession of Panagbenga.

You could read of why they celebrate this festive occasion somewhere but I'd like to show you how colorful they are.

Eron-Salamat Nuptials

I am tracking back the posts that I have lost and it goes back to December 2012.

Barasoain Church
This is my cousin's wedding held at the small yet historical church of Barasoain in Bulacan. I never thought that the church would be that small. Inside, it is buffed up with Christmas decors but when you stand closely next to the alter, there's something eerie you would feel.

I am not a big fan of religion, specifically Catholicism yet the joy that it brings to me when I take good HDR shots is priceless.

Arrow's Oliver Queen: Stephen Amell

This is my TV series for this month. I am almost half-way through finishing the whole season 1 of Arrow and Queen has never failed the city of Starling. I drooled over some pictures of how scruffy with those soft blue eyes and chiseled yet buffed physique of Stephen Amell. I actually find him hotter in full  beard - must be the estrogen working.
