The New Anton

By

I learned about this nike free blog contest from tanya , and it is very timely since I’ve been struggling for quite sometime to have a self makeover. From changing my selfish attitude, to improving the way I look, to reaching a new level of badminton skills, to living my life as meaningful as it can be. … What it takes is a combination of will power, positive vision, and relentless action that sometimes looks impossible to do.

Ordinary Food @ Zoovenir :(

By

What’s good about this place is the Baked Salmon and Cheese Dip (P290) with really crunchy garlic toasted french bread. … The Salads which was raved about by “F” is nothing but ordinary and we tasted both Tuna Turner (P140) and Chinese Duck Salad (P160).
…This is the reason that I want to blog about places, and restos in manila so that we don’t get all marketing gimmicks and information from TV Shows and Magazines…

Heartbreak Weekend :(

Also, when Rico M. was injured and Tang had to shoot in behalf of Rico M., the two free throws could have sent the ballgame into overtime ( he split his free throws).
…I was excited to watch finally for P300++ in this 40 seater Lazy Boy Theater with free flowing pop corns since January this year.
…I always look forward to the flickr meets specially since people there are very nice and share the common interest for the love of photos.

Sunday Morning Walk @ Seaside (Mall of Asia)

By

If you have not been to this place, this is the best place to exercise and spend early Sunday morning with your family. We call it the Seaside area where this is located near The Way, The Truth and the Life Church built by Henry Sy or infront of the biggest mall in Asia!
…There are group exercises in the morning, you can jog, ride a bike, or simply walk with your family from one end to another.

If there is one thing that I learned from The Fred Factor book, is that each day is an opportunity for you to make life a better place to live. The book is based on the extraordinary customer service of Fred the postman , and teaches you how passion in your work and life can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. When Fred was ask what motivates him on doing that things he is doing, here is the key ideas on what motivates him to be a “Fred”:

French Fine Dining @ Parallel 45

By

This fine dining restaurant just opened last July 26 and on Popsy’s bday we made sure that this is the place to be to select his 69th birthday. I’ve always been in the lookout for very nice dining places that is not in a hotel but the likes of Chef Laudico in Urdaneta, Tita Monings in Malacanang, Lolo Dads in Malate, and Antonio’s in Tagaytay.
…You should try the Soup & Sandwich (with foie gras), and the four dances of Foie Gras (small servings of duck liver cooked in 4 different ways — the “meat ball” cooked foie gras was good).

… When faced with decisions, try to look at them as if you were one level up in the organization.
… A person who is nice to you but rude to the waiter — or to others — is not a nice person.

My first Wedding Photoshoot Engagement

By

I was late by 15 minutes in the church and by about 90 minutes in the reception so it was a bad first job for me. … I was able to handle it during the church ceremony but I had a hard time with the exposure during dinner time.
… I was happy with the shots I got and I tried out a couple of effects I learned from Flickr’s Technique group.
