2010 a good starting year for one of my not so vital hobby. Yeah...photography though I call it amateugraphy (never mind on the way I call it...its just for newbies like me). For this year I've started exploring different photo tutorial sites, I've even used editing softwares, photo sorters and bought a cheap digital camera of my own.

Thanks to all of  those tutorial sites for the knowledge and learnings. I surely got a lot, out of it ...
  

Here are my top 5 sites (in random order) for beginners and maybe pros too.

Its really difficult for me to update this blog since as of now I'm sealed with loads of scholarly stuffs, plus the burden of the midterm examinations and the field work stress for our final paper in social anthropology nonetheless It should be at my utmost awareness to update and keep this blog site dynamic as much as doable.

Oh, before I forget my main purpose for this blog post it should be better to start it by...Last monday (that would be January 18, 2010) Karen, me, charle, nassefh, doods, nes and patrick celebrated karen's late special "for very close friends only" birthday bash at karen's favorite beloved happy place namely "penongs-located at many branches around Davao city".

As usual karen was slightly, just slightly angry at me again because I'm always the not on time human being when it comes to time consciousness though I really have a sensible reason for coming late.Anyhow, by the instance we've arrived at the happy place we were so inexorably glad because it was the year's first bonding moment for me and my closest friends. We've sang the classical(haha) Happy birthday to you song and prayed before eating our chow.

                                                                 while praying.lol 






chow!  

For the finale of the celebration we went to Jack's ridge to enjoy the view of the entire city, not to mention the nearest view just below it(hahah). As usual I'm the photographer I took pictures of them, just them. I've also incorporated my photo-shoot activity with the celebration, here are some of the pictures.

The night ended with so much memories, priceless memories I think...another night that would be treasured until reminiscently possible. Happy Birthday Karen...wishing you all the preeminent things in life.


 Another busy week at school but I still took pictures of various random bits and pieces. Anyways, I'll be posting once a month, some of my amateugraphy products and photo edits and update it if new photos will satisfy me.

Sa araw-araw na napapadaan ako at napapasulyap sa telebisyon parati ko nalang naririnig ang maka LSS na kanta ng advertisement ni Manny Villar. Pati mga kabataang edad 4 anyos eh napapakanta na marinig lamang ang hudyat ng pagsimula ng patalastas sa Telebisyon. Minsan nga nagbiro pa ang isa sa aking mga kaibigan na "ano ba yan, yan na ba ang bagong national anthem natin???". Di mapagkakailang di pa man nagsimula ang opisyal na campaign period, nagsisilitawan na ang lahat ng mga "getting to know each other" adds ng mga tatakbo sa May 2010 elections.Sino nga ba ang karapat-dapat iboto?Ibabase nalang ba natin ang ating mga boto sa kung sino ang mas sikat?o sino ang mas parating naririnig na matunong "daw" na kandidato?

Gising Pilipino!

Wag kang magsawalang bahala, kinabukasan natin ang naka-taya dito. Pati na rin ang kinabukasan ng susunod na henerasyon. Mag isip tayo ng mabuti kung sino ang nararapat ilukluk sa pinaka critical na posisyon sa pagpapalakad ng ating bansa. Wag tayo maniniwala agad sa mga pangakong napapako naman. Wag tayo agad ma kumbinse na iboto ang isang kandidato,dahil sa kung ano ang apelyido o sa kung sino ang nagpalaki sa kania. Wag tayo bumoto ng  mga kandidatong di alam ang tunay na solusyon o mga nagbubulag-bulagan lamang sa sitwasyon ng ating bansa.Wag tayong bumuto ng kandidatong magiging tuta lang naman. Wag tayong magsawalang bahala, gumising na po tayo mga kuya,ate,lolo,lola,itay,inay,tito at tita...



Back to school with lots of things to do and accomplish, yet we are still under the party mode spell of last year's holiday season. Last Tuesday (January 5, 2010) and Wednesday (January 6, 2010) me and my friends decided to go out for dinner and rock the Streets of Mintal, Davao City to exterminate the hex of the said  spell effect of the last season. We ate at the locally famous Chinese food station near the vicinity and sang our jolly and lovely songs at a  Small Videoke stall near the Mintal Public Market.

I ended up almost voiceless because of the songs till there was you, I, before I let you go and etc. Anyways we were all happy though were not on a  complete group that night...





Perstaym kong sumali sa L.P, pinilit kung sumali dito nang ako ay magkaron naman kahit papano ng makabuluhang aktibidad sa buhay lalo pa't isa rin sa hilig ko ang pagkuha ng mga larawan. Ang Kapal ko naman sasali-sali nalang ako ng biglaan(haha). "Makapal", ako ay nag tanong-tanong sa aking mga kaibigan kung ano ang unang pumapasok sa isip nila pag narinig nila ang salitang "Makapal". Ang unang sumagot ay nagsabing mukha daw, ang pangalawa naman ay pera "makapal na bundle daw ng pera" at ang huli ay sumagot ng libro.



 mga babasahin ni Eirven


Tinanong ko din ang  sarili ko ng parehong tanong sa aking mga kaibigan. Pareho din sa kanilang mga kasagutan ang pumasok sa aking isipan, ngunit habang ako ay nag aaral ng mga leksyon sa aking mga subjects naisip ko na pwede naman cguro na kahit ano nalang basta maikonek ko ito sa  "makapal".

Ang larawan sa itaas ay ang aking mga leksyon at makapal na ito dahil tambak na ang aking mga dapat aralin(pasaway na bata). Kaya naman nahuli ang aking post na ito dahil nga sa mga iyang nasa taas, at dapat ko pa itong ipagpatuloy sa ngayon para sa mga paghahandang gagawin ko sa aking mga examinasyon.









This is my first post for the year 2010 and I'd like to start this by greeting you guys a Happy New Year. Tomorrow, I'll be back to school and it means I'll be soaked again with scholarly activities. Its time for me to bring my notebooks and books back into action.Whoa! No more enough sleeps and Uber leisure activities. I  have to apply pressure in my academics too, because of the childish deal I arranged with my friend. The 2 weeks break I have enjoyed was done through infusing my self with adobe photoshop cs4, bloghopping, blog template editing and amateugraphy (amateur photography).




  pictures I took last  December 30, 2009

  
 By the way last December 30 was my 17th birthday and the birthday bash was held at a non famous beach owned by my Dad's friend. My family and relatives including me enjoyed the day by the different creative activities we have dipped ourselves into. The last two days Jan 2 and 3, 2010 was tiring for me because of the mild fever sickness I had caught, maybe It was caused by the Uber enjoyment action-packed stuffs I had.Yesterday, I also went to the mall to accompany my cousin and mother with their feminine shopping. I had also the chance to take pictures with their shopping trip.I'll just end this post with my photo-shots because I still have to pack my clothes and stuffs and tomorrow I'll be back to the dormitory
