Manila’s Sunset!

The City of Manila is located on the eastern shores of the Manila Bay in one of the finest harbors in the country.  Manila was also the seat of power for most of the country’s colonial rulers. It is the home to many historic sites, some of which were built during the 16th century. Anyway, I just want to share my weekends escapade and I am amazed to this awesome sunset that I saw.  Sunset4

This is the the center of Manila … and I love the reflections of the lights! So simple at night.

“I know that I shall meet my fate somewhere among the clouds above; those that I fight I do not hate, those that I guard I do not love.”
W.B. Yeats

Sunset01 “It is a very beautiful day. The woman looks around and thinks: ‘there cannot ever have been a spring more beautiful than this. I did not know until now that clouds could be like this. I did not know that the sky is the sea and that clouds are the souls of happy ships, sunk long ago. I did not know that the wind could be tender, like hands as they caress – what did I know – until now?”
― Unica Zürn

That’s all for today fellah! Opps by the way, Photos are taken only from my iphoneSE and by my own words.

New Elected President of the Philippines

1780851_229341123918492_480604856_n

Rodrigo “Rody” Roa Duterte, also known by the nickname Digong, is a Filipino lawyer and politician of Visayan descent who is the current apparent presumptive President-elect of the Philippines. Wikipedia

Born: March 28, 1945 (age 71), Maasin, Philippines

Education: San Beda College, Lyceum of the Philippines University, San Beda College of Law

Spouse: Elizabeth Abellana Zimmerman (m. 1973–2001), Honeylet Avancena

Children: Sara Duterte, Paolo Duterte, Sebastian Z. Duterte, Veronica A. Duterte

Siblings: Jocelyn Duterte, Blue Boy Duterte, Benjamin “Bong” Duterte

Previous offices: Vice-Mayor of Davao City (2010–2013),

Political life

After the 1986 People Power Revolution, Duterte was appointed officer-in-charge vice mayor. In 1988, he ran for mayor and won, serving until 1998. He set a precedent by designating deputy mayors that represented the Lumad and Moro in the city government, which was later copied in other parts of the country. In 1998, because he was term-limited to run again for mayor, he ran for the House of Representatives and won as Congressman of the 1st District of Davao City. In 2001, he ran again for mayor in Davao and was again elected for his fourth term. He was reelected in 2004 and in 2007.

In 2010, he was elected vice mayor, succeeding his daughter, Sara Duterte-Carpio, who was elected as mayor. He has been offered the Interior Secretary post 4 times, by presidents Fidel V. Ramos, Joseph Ejercito Estrada, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, and Benigno S. Aquino III but rejected all of them. In April 2014, he also declined a nomination for the World Mayor Prize, given by an international body to outstanding mayors saying “he was just doing his job.” Among the other awards Duterte also refused to accept for Davao City includes the one given by the American Cancer Society and the 2010 anti-smoking award in Singapore

Wishing for a REAL CHANGE for the Philippines!

May allah be with us!

AMORSOLOESQUE in Abu Dhabi

Why AMORSOLOESQUE? 

“Amorsoloesque is a learning technique,” says Kris, “the only limit is your imagination.”  This is a million dollar answer of Ms. Maricris Fabi-Carlos.

Why should i like her and what’s her capavility?

Only one answer i can tell she’s very unique and a very strong woman as i’ve ever seen, a down to earth person.

 At first, am hesitating to ask some questions on my work doing amorsoloesque but then she come to me and ask what i need to do and even i ask her so many times to come on my place to ask for more i don’t feel any problem with that and i like the way she teach.

Here’s some summary of her Basic Information

Her passion for the art started when her father introduced her to sketching and oil painting when she was younger. In 2007, she took basic and advanced photography courses at the FPPF( Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation), finishing at the top of her class. In the same year, she went on to win Photo of the Year 2008 with her “Raindrops” entry in the PhotoWorld Cup Network, a tough competition of the best photographers among the Philippines’ camera clubs. More awards affirmed her artistic talent: she was two-time Imahe Club’s Photographer of the Year in 2008-2009. In 2009, she ranked 5th as Photographer of the Year in PhotoWorld Cup; shooting up to 3rd in 2010.She is also a speaker in Photo World Asia 2011. Lately she won in the international Photo Competition held in South Korea. She beat more than 500 entries from Japan, Korea, Philippines, China, USA and Canada to win the 2011 Asia-Pacific District Photographic Competition of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

She loves portraiture and landscapes, enjoying and portraying them with available light. After her photographer-husband Jon Carlos taught her Photoshop, Maricris got hooked on photo editing and doing layouts for weddings, and shortly thereafter her passion to create surreal images started.

Amorsoloesque is inspired by National Artist Fernando Amorsolo, who art depicts Filipino Culture and way of life amid the back lighted scenic Philippine scapes.

Maricris is now doing photography workshops. Lately, she conducted a highly successful “Amorsoloesque” workshop in Singapore, It was attended by Singaporeans, Indonesians, Malaysians, Indians, Vietnamese as well as Filipino expats.
It was a great success as every single attendee learned the Amorsoloesque tips and Techniques.
The participants output were astounding, It piqued everyone’s dormant creative mind.And as what Amorsoloesque is all about..It is a learning opportunity.

“Amorsoloesque is a learning technique,” says Kris, “the only limit is your imagination.”
