My 2010 travels in review

By on May 16, 2011
This is a rather belated review, but I still would like to share some of the mandatory solo photos taken at various Philippine destinations I've been to last year.

Harrington rod

By on August 1, 2007

An incredible march

By on September 25, 2006
The documentary made me realized that compared to some humans, the penguins have a strong sense of responsibility (parenting), teamwork (They have to rely on each other for warmth in a fierce snowstorm.) and selflessness (The males practically do not eat for over four months in incubating their unborn chick.)
