The best of the season

Photo enthusiasts will surely have their feast day this season with plenty of Christmas lights and holiday events to capture.

With your camera set you can take as many pictures that you want from setting up the Christmas lights and Christmas tree adorn with colorful ornaments in the living room. On Christmas eve, you can take a good shot of your cute little kids or nieces and nephews giggling and having fun while opening up their presents. You have to be quick to shoot otherwise you’ll miss their smiles and laughter in a second. Oh, what a joy to see the excitement in their young faces.

As for the events, you can start taking good pictures during Simbang Gabi (Misa de Gallo or Rooster’s Mass). You would not miss the facade of the church and the line to makeshift stores selling delicious puto bumbong and bibingka. You don’t need to complicate things to have a good shot of what you have or see at the moment. Just enjoy the moment and leave out unnecessary details. Don’t forget to bring extra batteries.

Have fun shooting!

Simbang Gabi


Did you wake up early today to catch the traditional Simbang Gabi (Misa de Gallo or Rooster’s Mass)?

Today (December 16) marks the beginning of the nine-day mass observed by the Catholic faith in the Philippines (and elsewhere worldwide).

It’s a popular belief that by completing the nine-day mass, which ends on December 24, one will be able to fulfill his/her prayer. You can pray for goodwill, good health, prosperity, or just about anything even material things like gps tracking for trucks. But don’t expect for a miracle to happen instantly because you still have to work hard for the things that you wish or pray for.

What is it that you want to achieve this year?
