Weekend at Quezon City

I was invited in a photoshoot by my cousin’s friend, Kuya Jay Exiomo, for his personal project “Metro Manila Diaries”. I’m still happy for being part of this project, spreading the beautiful and historical parts of Metro Manila. You may check his wonderful works in his travel blog Pusang Gala. 🙂 P.S. You might drool over his beautiful shots and the places he had been to!

Photos were taken in some of the famous places around Quezon City: Quezon Memorial Circle, Maginhawa Street and UP Diliman. Below are some of his shots:

Quezon Memorial Circle

I was still in High School the last time I visited Quezon Memorial Circle and as far as I can remember, there were only parks and sari-sari stores around. I’m amazed by how much it has changed! There were now interactive museum, restaurants, court, fitness equipment, and a lot more! We need more city parks like this, please. 🙂

I bet no one gets hungry here in the famous food street, Maginhawa Street. lol. Photos were taken specifically at StrEat and Cat Cafe Manila. Instagram-ish stores that offers a different variety of foods, who wouldn’t want to come here? 🙂 It may be scourging hot outside but I don’t mind, I could chill here any time!

UP Diliman Campus

The home of UP Fighting Maroons. Best place to have any photoshoot theme, jog and train, stroll, eat street foods or just relax over the weekend. The sun light, forest like surroundings – UP Diliman Campus will make you feel like you’re far from the busy city. You’ll love everything about here.

So aside from Kuya Jay’s photos, I also have my own random photos. Haha!

Touring around Quezon City made me realize that each city has its own beauty and history that I need to learn and to know more. 🙂

Looking forward for more photoshoot, random photos and weekend like this! Hope you had an awesome weekend like mine! 🙂

VISUAL: Weekend Getaway at Baguio City

Baguio City is also known as Summer Capital of the Philippines because of its cool climate. One of the favorite destination of locals and tourists anytime of the year.

Last weekend, we had a chance to visit Baguio City again. It’s been a rainy week but I still chose to wear shorts at Baguio City despite of its cold weather. Damn, never again! Haha.

Some may not know yet, I like mobile photography. You may check some of my shots in my Instagram and Twenty20 accounts. 🙂

So below are some photos that I randomly took:
