Busy Airport + The Runway Viewed from Above

The last time I updated this blog was in February. Imagine! I myself can't believe I have neglected this blog for 2 long months. What's up with me? All I can think of is the same old reason, I was too busy with my day job the past months and I'm sure even in the coming months, after all it's our bread and butter. Anyway, I will not promise much but I'll try my very best to share some of the photos taken within my perspective. After all this blog is all about photos of life... :-)

So to restart the journey.. Here's a photo of busy airport ground in Laguindingan Airport, Misamis Oriental, another plane has landed and passengers on board are starting to deplane.


Another one was taken above the ground wherein you can see the runway strip of Laguindingan Airport. A newly built airport that operated last year.

 


A nice choice of photos to be shared for Blue Monday and Monday Mellow Yellows.

Framed Tower

One early Sunday morning we attended mass at the chapel in the subdivision. We stayed and listened the gospel outside the because the little boy kept on running around.


I looked up and appreciated the blue clear sky of the early morning. Looking great as a background of the towering transmitter framed by the green tree leaves.

Truly a one beautiful Sunday with the Lord.

A Remembrance From My Online Journey


This a a very overdue post. Supposedly shared December last year but was too busy to complete. Nevertheless, better late that never. 

I’ve been blogging on and off for the past few years, ranting personal experiences and or just talking nonsense. Because I don’t really have the skill in writing (especially English), monetizing my blogs will be very difficult. Over the years I have received only few “once in a blue moon” opportunities from the paying sites that I have joined. The pays I got were kept on my paypal account, and just enough to buy and renew my domains. 
 
It was last year that my personal blog got more opportunities from a paying site that I have recently joined. Getting $5 for a minimum of 60 words post is very handy for me.  I got more views too, thanks to my friends at the bloggers community, they helped me get noticed. In fact I also received two collaborations from the two biggest online shopping malls in the country. 

Last month, I finally got a Unionbank EON card and withdrawn my paypal earnings. And guess what I got for myself? A smart camera that I can carry all the time! I needed a smaller camera to continue my blogging journey because the DSLR is too bulky, and my smartphone has limitations.

I was eyeing for the red Samsung WB250F Smart Camera displayed at SM City with price tag of P 11,990.00 for months already. Because I love colored gadgets, especially those with striking color, I was dreaming for it. 

But you know what? I disregarded the color this time because I found the same model which was cheaper by P2,000.00 at Robinsons. It was on Christmas Promo and the only available color was blue.  (Sayang naman ang P2,000.00)

So here it is, my new baby Samsung WB250F Smart Camera.

I’m still on the process of learning and exploring the features. I hope to make my own review soon…

Blue and Peaceful

It's the 8th day of January, and the busy body me never got a chance to post something here until today. Yay! 

Anyway it's a brand new year and I hope everyone is doing well in their first eight days and hoping that our whole year will be peaceful, with more blessings, graces and happiness.

To start this year's series of photos, here's one that I took last Monday, a blue and peaceful sea. I drove myself to Iligan from Cagayan de Oro the other day and took few minutes to stop by at the Centennial Park. The sea look do serene in a sunny midday. 


It was a good decision to pull over to take some snaps for Water World Wednesday. Because by late afternoon, this scene transformed into a gloomy sight because of the threatening rain and dark gray clouds, the first for the year in this part of the world.

And as of this writing, I can hear the rain drops pounding on our roof. Let's enjoy the wonderful rainy day!

By the way this photo was taken using my fresh Samsung Smart Camera WB250F.
