DPP's KLM On Assignment Photography Contest Experience

 



"In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take."

That's one cliche that's true and it struck me to my very core when I joined Digital Photographer Philippines's KLM On Assignment (Barcelona) last July-August of 2015.

I would like to thank everyone -- family and friends -- who inspired, helped, and supported me one way or another. I would have not made it without you.

Here's the detailed flow of my experience from Qualifying Round, Announcement of Finalists, Final Round, and landing on the Second Place. :)

Cebu | Island Hopping and Snorkeling at Mactan

 


Island Hopping and Snorkeling at Mactan


Our visit to Cebu last summer is a combination of what is familiar and what is not. Familiar because Cebu has constantly been close to my heart having lived in its neighboring island, Negros Island, almost all my life. And on the other hand, we seek to see what Cebu has to offer on a different perspective coming from Mactan Island.

AurumOne Makati

 





AurumOne Makati, Magallanes, Makati City, Manila

My friends from Dumaguete constantly ask me, “What’s the hotel you could recommend in Manila which is just a few minutes from the airport?” I often have to think hard before I could give them a definite answer for their query before but now I have one.

Mactan Island | Cebu White Sands Resorts and Spa

 

Mactan Island | Cebu White Sands Resorts and Spa
Love the view from their roof-deck restaurant/bar

Cebu has always been close to my heart and what I considered my second home having lived in its neighboring island, the Negros Island, for twenty-one years. That is why I always come back to the Queen City of the South every once in a while.

Batanes Itinerary and Guide | Cagayan Valley

 



One of my dream destinations, aside from Coron and El Nido, Palawan, is to see the awe-inspiring landscape and seascape of Batanes! Well, 2013 was a pure bliss when I scored a round-trip ticket of around Php 1,400 from PAL (launch promo on their flights to Batanes).

Cabanatuan | Microtel by Wyndham

 



If you are looking for a classy and affordable place in Cabanatuan, I recommend for you to stay at the Microtel by Wyndham. I mean, I have been to a few Microtels but it has always proved me the right accommodation choice whenever I am on a trip or a mere staycation just around Metro Manila.
