Buhay Jeepney: Are we there yet?

A commuter looking out the window of a jeepney bound for San Andres, Manila. Taken last December 17, 2016 near Robinson’s Place Manila in Ermita. * * * I’ll be honest with you. These days I’d mostly take an Uber or GrabCar when getting around the Metro. Only because most of where I need to […]

Buhay Jeepney: Monday na naman bukas.

A jeepney driver resting his head amidst heavy traffic along Pedro Gil St. in Sta. Ana, Manila. Photo taken last year, October 27, 2016. * * * To say that traffic in Metro Manila is beyond redemption is an understatement. Traffic here is so bad, it let’s you cycle through all the five stages of grief, after which […]

passport.gov.ph – Expired SSL certificate on the PH Passport Portal for the past 12 days

A public portal used by citizens for passport applications (passport.gov.ph) suddenly becomes unsecure due to an expired SSL certificate and no one can do anything about it because, bureaucracy. Last May 12, 2017, the SSL certificate of the Passport Portal of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) here in the Philippines expired. I noticed this Thursday […]

Buhay Jeepney: Belat

A photo of a woman on a moving jeepney taken at night along Pedro Gil Street in Ermita. I haven’t posted anything lately as I’m still finding time to go through photos that I took the past two months. There’s just too many jeepney photos to choose from and there’s no simple way but to […]

Buhay Jeepney: Taft Ave. corner Vito Cruz St.

Whenever I’m on foot or commuting during the evening rush or at later parts of the night, I’d take photos of jeepneys and the drivers or passengers. It has become a habit the past few months and it soon evolved into a series which I will soon start sharing and putting up on a special […]

Street photography at night in P. Burgos Street, Makati City

That night I went out and took photos in the red light district of Makati with fellow street photographers Jonathan and RJ. We spent some time around these telco workers who were installing what I think was an LTE radio antenna that night in the corner of Makati Avenue and P. Burgos Street in Makati. Jonathan was […]

Review: Webfaction hosting still sucks

Eight years on Webfaction and I’m still hosting my sites with them. So yeah, Webfaction hosting doesn’t suck at all, sorry for the click bait. I only mentioned ‘Webfaction hosting still sucks’ as an inside joke within friends since we don’t really have much to complain about. I’ve been using Webfaction on most WordPress websites that I run, […]

Taft Ave. corner Vito Cruz St., Manila

Taft Avenue corner Vito Cruz Street, Manila

After a meeting on that scorching hot afternoon of March 23, 2017, I find myself walking along Taft Ave. from Quirino Ave. and taking photos on the way. The weather felt like it was in the 40s (Celsius) though it was probably around 33-35 degrees that day. I end up in the corner of Taft Avenue and […]
