Lucky me I caught this picture last December in our family vacation at Batangas, Phil.
I was really amazed by the nature look and this young girl’s caught my attention and inspired me how they enjoy a simple life…

A truly Filipina way!”

  1. this is so inspiring and touching, anton. thank you for bringing all these together. there is truly no other place like home, and home will always be where my heart is.

  2. i love 1 and 8. 1 because it is a strong photo. a conqueror and a survivor. i also love 8 because its witty, funny and endearing..
    great photos for all!!!

  3. i like number 8. it shows the real value of filipino. the photo itself can speak for it’s own. no need to explain

  4. I just miss those days when we were still young back in bicol when we get to take a bath on the side of the road on those “bukal” or super mini water falls. Before going to Tiwi and eating the ever famous halo halo in ice blink. AS far as I can remember they were using the old school ice shaver so it usually takes a while when doing your halo halo.
    Then my lolo makes this pure chocolate cacao (authenticity level – 100) drying up the beans and waiting for a couple of days.
    Naga’s toasted siopao, Tabaco’s suman latik of Tiya concing, and tuna in catanduanes.
    I want to go back where my roots are.
    Very relaxing nature shots. Good Job!
