And There Was Happiness At The Manila Polo Club.


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!

OF what I really love to do after every session of my wedding and every engaging shoot, I mean always love to do, is to enjoy every minutes of the break, be it a coffee break or perhaps a make-over break for an hour or a half. I simply take some rest to look good before the session begins, again.

Pampering with self is among the very first in my priority list, everytime there’s a break in between wedding photo sessions. I just lay back, off with my leather shoes, sometimes, I’ll take some minutes of nap or perhaps, I’ll get my phone and get online and slide into an instagram (an online photo sharing on phone) for some posting. Thus, it makes me feel relax and feels just fine and alright after hours of session.

After a minute of energizing self and stressing out, I’d really love to munch some chicken crispy nuggets with it’s sweetened and light sour sauce that is tinglin’ in the mouth.


And yes, it makes me feel alive again and energized, ready again for hours and hours of wedding photo coverage. Come face-to-face again with clients in a new revitalized in full vibrant and in dynamic mode, this time it was with the Yeo and Dy Wedding at the Marriot’s Manila Hotel and with my Fujifilm cameras, the X-T1 graphite and now with my new Fujifilm Nano-G1 50-140mm F2.8 XF Lens with 5 stops image stabilizer.

And yes definitely, you will be amazed also with the sharpness of the images it produces. Besides the cameras are lightweight and compact and has wi-fi capabilities, really a good help for us photographers shifting into mirror-less cameras and enjoying it.

Moreover, before we begin another hours of session again with my X-T1 graphite (and now with Fujifilm Nano-G1), I need to drink a cup or two of my favorite cappuccino, that foamy and invigorating.
