Breaking Through



My siblings and I were at Bohol Tropics Resort in Tabilaran City, Bohol one afternoon during vacation time. We were enjoying the view of Tagbilaran Bay while we ate some snacks. The sky was quite overcast and I was intrigued how the whole scene would look in a photo. And so I took the shot. This photo speaks to me of hope breaking through an overburdened sky.

A Snapshot of College Life

Once upon a time in Cebu, I tried taking up a medical related course.

I took one year of Physical Therapy and knew for sure that I could not last another year hunched over preserved life forms (like frogs and cats and then the human cadaver if I had stayed on with the course) with the smell of formalin haunting my frail existence after stepping out of the laboratory.  It was just a year really but it was a pretty memorable year to me. Perhaps it was because I was living away from home. It was my first year of well, a kind of independence (not full independence since my parents and my sister spent for my studies and lodging). And I would say memorable because I had such cool friends, classmates in Cebu Doctors’ College (now Cebu Doctors’ University). They are still stuck in my memory – together with their laughter, jokes, songs. Who says college life, college classmates can be easily forgotten? 

As the digital camera was not yet a craze in the ’90s, we had so limited shots. Below is one shot thankfully taken by our good friend and classmate, Aser 🙂

Look Ma, Birds!

Birds, birds, birds

I took this shot a couple of years ago while I was on vacation in Bohol. I was fascinated with the numerous birds resting on the electrical wires. This was taken near Tabilaran City’s Rizal Plaza, just across the Bohol Provincial Capitol.
