While in the Philippines, I decided to take a photography workshop with the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF). I must say I enjoyed the workshop a lot. I not only learned technical aspects of photography and composition, I also left the workshop inspired by the lecturers.

And the class was a fun bunch!

Here are some photos I took during the first day of the workshop.

Manny Pacquiao

These photos were taken the day Manny Pacquiao arrived in Manila after his fight with Cotto in Las Vegas. His motorcade passed right in front of my sister's office building. I did not bring my dslr but was able to borrow a point and shoot camera.

I do not know much about Pacquiao. So, I grabbed the information below from Wikipedia.

Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao (pronounced /ˈpækjaʊ/, /pa'kjaw/ in Cebuano and Tagalog, also in Bikol; born December 17, 1978), more commonly known as Manny Pacquiao, is a Filipino professional boxer.

He is currently the WBO welterweight world champion, IBO and Ring Magazine light welterweight champion, and is rated by Ring Magazine as the #1 pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

He is also the former WBC lightweight world champion, WBC super featherweight world champion, IBF super bantamweight world champion, and WBC flyweight world champion. Furthermore, he is the former Ring Magazine featherweight and super featherweight champion.

The Filipino boxing superstar is the first boxer to win seven world titles in seven different weight divisions. In addition, he is the only boxer to win the lineal championship ("the man who beat the man") in four different weight classes.

I haven't been good at posting to my blog lately... I've been taking a lot of photos this summer. It's just that it takes a while for me to load and review them on my computer.

Here are a few I took back in September with my friend Ji. It's actually in the same train station where the bench photo from the last post was taken from.

Last Day Today

Today is my last day at work. As I mentioned in my a post from last month (Outsourced), several positions in the company I am working for will be outsourced to Ireland.

I was browsing through my photos and I came across a photo I took of a train station bench. I noticed the word "World" and took a closer look. It said,

Worlds the limit if you take advantage

And of course, now I have to be better at conserving cash too! ;)
