Somebody from Cebu dropped a message saying she and her friends or colleagues just read my article that was published in Youngblood (the one about how I met a stranger on a bus) and she requested for a photo of Mr. Stranger. It has been my personal rule not to post our photos, especially the cheesy ones because I’m generally a shy person (my friends will club me on the head saying this, but it’s true).
But since nostalgia and longing have been bothering me for quite some time, I decided to post some of Mike’s photos here when we were in Ilocos last year to spend the holy week with my relatives. It’s been almost a year since I last saw him–we both work abroad (he’s a graphic artist/ layout artist/ web designer/ web host/ your-go-to-guy-when-you-need-some-digital-aid), and work has been my drug pill to make me forget that I’m one lonely person in this vacuum of… ick. sentimentality.
Here are some of the photos I took in the northern part of the Philippines using Canon ixus 80 (click on the image, it’ll pop). First four photos show Mike and my adorable cousin, Andy, and next to that is a photo of my very, very serious cousin, Miguel playing his PSP, and the other kid Mike doing Manny Pacquiao (we must’ve been bored in the car–except Miguel).
