yeah im back

sorry havent updated you on the last leg of my mindanao trip, im still pretty racked up about having to leave the place. im still speechless, cant express myself fully about how beautiful the whole place is and what a wonderful time i had while doing the documentary. as soon as i can i will write about it.

anyway, yes im back in manila. arrived monday morning ready for work. will be meeting my boss today pa lang though. and im going to cebu tomorrow for one of his projects, will be back in manila by the evening (wow, jetsetter daw! hwahaha). im still have other projects i need to finish: edit the docus i did in la paz, zamboanga and in lake sebu, south cotabato, finish the script of the uccp youth choir christmas cantata, write a script for the reception of a friend’s wedding, and sleep. 🙂 oh yes, eat too.

gotta go. my boss texts me just now he’s to meet me in aurora ave at 11.30. it’s 10.50 and i havent bathe yet. cheers!


the return of the comeback, part 2

ok, by midnight tonight ill be off to davao and to gensan and to marbel and to surallah then to lake sebu by lunchtime tomorrow. im going back! still have a few interviews to catch and a few more places to shoot. my sked is really killing me, my boss in manila is already looking for me and was expecting me to be back in mandaluyong middle of october. and here i am still going round mindanao.

mindanao is soo much fun. everything is practically accessible by bus. and the traveling just adds to the charm of the place. cruising through foggy nights across mountains and plains and waking up in a different city the next day, though not entirely strange and unfamiliar. the spirit of the pinoy lives on and the more islands and hills you explore the more you realize what a wonderful place the philippines is, and how the government is doing a rather crappy job looking after it.

see you all soon. and perhaps more stories later too. just got another set of my photos from the developers this morning. more pictures of t’boli women dancing, and a few more of my nieces and nephew. cheers y’all! 🙂
