i’ve watched your birthing

the turning of your heart

to the colors of the world

and your breathing

to the tempo of his arms

till the last you gave

was swallowed whole

by this black

encompassing whale

above

amidst

and below

-

my eyes are full

i shall break my silence, again

pray

this ain’t a half-cooked

promise

Photo Diary: Bunga Falls

Bunga Falls is located in Nagcarlan Laguna, my dad (forever photowalk buddy!) and I went there last June. I actually forgot the exact date (this is what vacation does to me, I’m not aware of the dates lol) but it was a weekday. Since it was a weekday I expected that there would be less people and it’s June summer’s over!

Well, it turns out my expectation was right! There’s a sign in the entrance that you need to pay five pesos, but there was no one to pay. From the entrance, there’s a short trek and when we arrived there was no one not a single being! We had the falls all to ourselves! That’s also why my video diary that I posted you’d see no people.

I think this was the first falls that I’ve seen. Yes, I’m from Laguna but I haven’t seen the more popular falls because I don’t have time or maybe I don’t make time for it. Unlike my dad who have gone to several falls already. Anyway, I can’t explain the experience, I just know that the nature lover in me was so happy! What I like best was when I was in this small hill(?) in front of the falls and I was just watching the water falling it was so calming he he he ~

When we’re preparing to go, a family came and some kids that I think just live around the place. That’s why there’s a photo above of a kid jumping from the waterfalls. I was so happy I caught it on my cam!

Bunga Falls is not yet super developed, but I’d still recommend you take a visit.



All photos were taken by me, even the self portraits (I managed to use the self timer lol) because my dad was so busy taking low exposure shots for me to bother him loljk! And also the layout and design were made by yours truly.  ✨

My tumblr page is working again. Took me awhile and a lot of help from google before I was able to figure out the problem. Basically, you just have to slide the SSL option on to enable the “https” code to work and to secure tumblr on Chrome. 

These are some of the photos from my most recent trip to Morong, Bataan a week ago. I went there to hang out with my Aunt who visited the Philippines (and just left this morning). The last time she was here was roughly a decade ago. Definitely, a lot has changed in the country literally, figuratively, and more importantly politically in that span of time. 

But the mountains, the ocean, the entirety of the countryside has always been breathtaking I suppose.
