November 4, 2011


It was a long thing coming, me finally being ready to showcase my work.  Truthfully speaking if it was not that an exhibit were the penultimate result of my internship at the Gladstone Hotel, I wouldn’t have gotten myself ready.  What surprises me though, is that in that amount of time, I was able to […]

Annual Pumpkin Carving 2011

October 30, 2011


Hands down, fall is my most favorite of all the seasons.  There is so much to look forward to, my Algonquin Park Hike, the change of colors and the best of them all, my sister Ayen’s pumpkin carving party.  Every year for the last 9 years, my sister and I have invited friends and family […]

Thanksgiving 2011

October 9, 2011


It seems just a year ago that I dived into blogging.  Unsure what to do, I found my way around and got my first post up.  It was my first attempt to cook a turkey, Thanksgiving 2010.  A lot has happened since then.  Throughout the year, I have a lot of things that I am […]

High Park Sunday Morning

June 26, 2011


I found myself hiking through the trails of High Park early this morning, looking for a special spot.  I chose the park for my client, Jackie, who wanted an on-location portrait for her daughter, Caitlin.  I’ve always wished the High Park is right on my backyard.  Sprawling 400 acres in the heart of Downtown Toronto, […]

My favorite fortune cookie of all time

January 14, 2011


As promised from the earlier post, I would tell you about the fortune I read out of a Chinese fortune cookie.  This happened  back in late October when I was in the process of building my food website  When you are working full-time as a chemist and moonlighting at night as a photographer, you […]

My first Canadian Thanksgiving dinner!

October 12, 2010


After all this time in Toronto, I never have embraced the holiday of Thanksgiving.  I have always found another thing to do, another place to visit, so much so that I never really stopped and consider experiencing it.  This year however, I have a visiting cousin from Manila who would be arriving Thanksgiving weekend.  He […]
