Recently, I blogged about my dining experience in Oh, My Gulay, which is an art space for Baguio artists and at the same time, a vegetarian restaurant.  It was a pleasant dining experience for me as I was able to savor both art and the yummy food they served.

On the other hand, I also wrote about visiting Balay ni Tana Dicang in Negros Occidental and got the feel on how to live like a sugar baron, ca. 1883!  the house was just awesome!  It was full of antique furniture and everything was well preserved!

Join me in my explorations in the future!

On my last post for May in Mono-logues, I featured a tire repair man in his late 50s and i talked about moving on.  I guess, we all need to go on despite some obstacles that we face along life's road. 

On my trip to Atok, Benguet, I reminisce about the thrill of traveling through a dangerous road just to see the mummies of Kabayan, Benguet.  It was one of the most simple yet fulfilling trip I have had in my life.  It just felt good on top of a mountain.  We planned to scale Mt. Pulag this May but things did not work out.  It is already rainy season and rains do not augur well for mountain climbing.

Anyway, I will be updating my Explored! blog more often now.  I have had so many stories to share and pictures to show.  I hope you come back always to explore with me.

While I keep three other blogs, I still find this useful to help you navigate through my website and look for something interesting posts in my other three blogs

Anyway, I have made several changes in my blogs:

In "Explored!".  I find the new head banner quite interesting and more of me.  It was taken while trekking mt. Kanlaon in Negros Occidental.  I have recently featured Aliwan 2011 as my recent destination.  Please do check out for my upcoming post on my trip to Negros Occidental and Cordillera.

I changed the layout of Inkblots: Life as it happens.  It looks nice and dandy in its new white background and more navigational links. Do check out my latest post, which features another exhibit I am participating.  I recently won a photo contest and I am just so happy to share it with you.

Mono-logues is still thriving.  I guess this is now the most popular blog I maintain, with 230 facebook friends following it.  It has found its market niche.

 
Whenever possible, and whenever there are interesting subjects along the way, I manage to take some photos while on travel.

Some might find my article about Vigan, funny.  Well, it is supposed to be so.  While the photo taken in Lagawe is a memorable shot since it was my first street photo.

Read on at Mono-logues.
 
In the past weeks, I have written new entries in Mono-logues.  These are the following:

Searching - where I pay my moral obligation for a mother who is looking for her long-lost son;
Part of a whole - discusses some of my thoughts on the recent Manila hostage incident; and
Matthew 6:26 - makes me realize some more important things in this world.

I hope you like my new blog entries.  Read on...
 
It is raining and I cannot help but go back down to memory lane.  My new post in Mono-logues reminisces about the feeling of having a brand new DSLR camera in a place I will always cherish.  READ ON...
 
Finally, I have come to terms on how to use the blog function of Weebly.  So here I am guiding you through on what has been going on with my 3 blogs and photography activities for the past months.
  • I admit I have not been active in my travel blog.  It is just not easy to maintain a travel blog, especially when you are limited by financial constraints.  I have managed to have some travels in the first six months of 2010, but I still need to find time to write all those stories which I have accumulated.  Nonetheless, you may want to know about the Monasterio de Tarlac which I visited last April 2010 during the Holy Week, where I saw the Arqueta encasing the Relic of the Cross of Christ.
  • Kulimlim sa Pola, and Peace are my recent takes in Mono-logues.  Kulimlim tells more about how I maximized a rather gloomy day into a photographic opportunity, while In Peace, I pay tribute to the observance of the Holy Ramadhan.  Moreover, the article SOOC (straight out of camera) might be of interest to you too.
  • After the elections, nothing much has been happening in Inkblots: life as it happens.  Perhaps it was the election fatigue.  But I managed to spring back with my articles on Panata sa Pagbabago, and a photo/video production aptly titled "A People's Victory" on the Presidential Inaugural last June 30, 2010, which I also posted it here. Lately, I have exercised my brain in my take to yet another threat to intellectual property rights.
  • In my photography, I am beginning to learn more about high dynamic range (HDR) photography.  You might want to visit THIS SET in Flickr.
Thank you and please do come back from time to time for more updates.
