Pipi na bulag pa

"Ticket vending machine does not accept coins 2010 and 2011 series."

Ito ang dahilan kung bakit ang napakahaba ng pila sa Metro Rail Transit 2 (MRT2) na bumibiyahe mula sa Recto hanggang Santolan.

Hindi naman ako araw-araw sumasakay sa MRT2. Pero kada sasakay ako ay hindi nawawala ang problema ito.

Noong itinayo ang MRT2, nagtiis ang karamihan sa mga taga Metro Manila dahil sa trapik na idinulot nito.

Pero ngayong operational na ito. Nagtitiis pa rin ang sumasakay dito dahil sa haba ng pila upang makakuha ng magnetic ticket.

Tama ba 'yan?

World's most expensive photo

Kopya ng Rhine II (larawan mula sa BBC)

Nagkakahalaga ng P187,813,665 ($4.3m) ang larawan na nakikita ninyo sa itaas. Ang imahe ay photograph ni German artist Andreas Gursky at nabili ito sa nasabing halaga ng isang German collector, ayon sa British Broadcasting Company, sa isang auction ng Christies ng New York.


Kuha ito ni Gursky noong 1999 at ginawang digital image upang maalis ang ilang bagay sa photograph na aniya'y nakakasira sa picture.
Ipinaliwanag ni Gursky na  "a particular place with a view over the Rhine which has somehow always fascinated me, but it didn't suffice for a picture as it basically constituted only part of a picture".
"In the end I decided to digitalise the pictures and leave out the elements that bothered me," aniya. 


Monday pixels-Jeepney photo shoots

Texting, one of the things you can do inside the jeepney...

Anong ginagawa mo kapag bumibiyahe sa jeep? May ilang pasahero, kung hindi kabisado ang ruta ay nakatutok sa dinadaanan ng jeep upang maiwasang  malampasan ang bababaan.

May ilan naman na busy sa pagte-text habang sinasamantala ng iba ang pagkakataon upang makaidlip. Karaniwan ay sumasakay sa jeep upang makarating sa paaralan, pinapasukang opisina at sa marami pang kadahilanan. 

Jeepney pa rin naman ang pinakamurang pamamaraan ng transportasyon sa ating bansa at hindi maikakaila na ito pa rin ang pinakamadali at pinakamabilis na sakyan pagkaraan ng bus o taxi.

From GenSan to Lake Sebu, road pictures

The signs are on the wall...habang ginagawa moa ng dapat mong gawain.
Found this inside the newly-built and launched Surallah terminal
Additional pictures I took on my way to Lake Sebu from Gen. Santos City. Had a great time. The journey was worth it. To visit Lake Sebu from GenSan, take a bus to Marbel and from there take another bus to Surallah. At Surallah, you could negotiate for a "Skylab" to take you to Lake Sebu. Or you can take a van from Surallah to Lake Sebu.

Lake Sebu sights and pixels

An example of the vibrant colors of Lake Sebu.
Here are more pictures which I shoot during my visit to Lake Sebu. The place is just beautiful, the people polite. And you can eat the best tilapia/plapla harvested from fish pens in the lake. 

Lake Sebu Falls


I recently visited Lake Sebu in South Cotabato and was amazed by the water falls in the municipality known for its Tiboli culture. There are seven falls in the area but my schedule permitted me to visit just two of the eye-catching,  breathe-taking sights.

Cotabato City, green sights and blue skies


During my recent sojourn in Moro land, particularly in Cotabato City, I had the chance of visiting the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Masjid, which according to MindaNews is the grandest in the Philippines.

Monday Photos - Sultan Mastura, Maguindanao

Blazing sunset showers the rice fields and coconut plantations.

I travelled recently to Sultan Mastura in the Province of Maguindanao  in the southern part of the Philippines. It was noticeably peaceful with people trying to live their lives to the fullest. Here are some of what nature offer visitors in the municipality.

Monday Photos - Negative Pixels

These are cups with hot coffee. I took this while on a forum and the effects were just marvelous.

I experimented with the features of my phone camera and utilized the negative functions and here are some of the results. Enjoy.

Monday Photos - Quezon Memorial Circle Pixels

This is my take on the Quezon Memorial Circle and the people who enjoy the place. 
Isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit masasabi kong isa akong proud citizen ng Quezon City ay ang Quezon Memorial Circle. Napabayaan ito noong panahong ang namahala rito ay si Charito Planas. Pero ngayon, masasabing astig ang lugar na ito. May softball, baseball at football field na rito ngayon. Mayroon ding rock climbing at zip line. Ang dami pang makakainan. At siyempre, kung gusto mong tumakbo, ayos dito.
