ABSOLUTELY and definitely not maybe, it was the most spectacular and breathtaking Friday night to wind-up this year’s engagament in wedding photography at Manila Polo Club located at McKinley Road, Forbes Park in Makati City.

Almost close in celebrating the coming new year, Brian and Cheryl decided to vowed each other’s perpetual love beforehand with such amazing fireworks best seen during the celebration of the new year instantly prompting the festive and remarkable merriment the new life brings as the fast approaching new year upholds.

It was really a one astounding wedding engagement so amazing not only to be shared but to remember for the rest of our lives, capturing every great moments using of course my ever reliable Fujifilm XT1 with 10-24mm F4 Fujinon lens, a one momentous wedding ceremony ever. Nevertheless, as we all wait for the coming 2015, let me be the very first to congratulate in best wishes and greet the wonderful couple, a very Happy New Year in advance to the newly weds Brian & Cheryl.

And There Was Happiness At The Manila Polo Club.

LighterSide

Reframing the lighter side of life. Where happiness happens at the Manila Polo Club.

What I really like about life is spending it with happy friends and great colleagues. Now that Christmas, time of merrying and festive celebration is all around the corner, I enjoy life more with happy moments and yes, those wacky images. Time to rekindle life a much more lighter that I should.

It was really fun and exciting meeting back again my team at the Manila Polo Club. Fine dining with lots of stories delivered and told, stories that beget loving memories. Drinking with merriment and enthralled with every words and images that came forth for such a great bonding moments, fondling it more to embrace those extra adoring experiences, more of it like a celebration of life.

Altering my point of view, now I remember what Pres. John F. Kennedy charged the Americans with the words “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.” Encouraging all of us to rethink our rights and obligations.

Thus, for the lighter side, I mean for the brighter side of life, why not asking again each and everyone of us, “Ask not what your happiness can do for you, ask what you can do for your happiness.” To make things better and enjoy more of what we called…happy life.

And there goes again my happy feet at the Manila Polo Club with great friends and acquaintances, and there was I…there was life!
