The theme for this week’s photo challenge is PURPLE. Barney! Today is also the day before the Milo Marathon.
Barney + Milo = Bad memories.
I remembered again the runner wearing purple shorts who tricked us to cheat in the 2009 Milo Marathon finals.
Goodluck runners. Run strong. Run proud. Run true. Don’t ride the bus!
My entry for this week is this gorgeous flower I saw at the Salcedo Market. This is a Purple Passion Vine. Gorgeous!
Some interesting purple entries this week:
1. Purple Pod Pole Beans – love the play on purple and red
2. Dusk at Mt Fuji. I chose Kamakura over Mt Fuji now I regret it not visiting. Here it looks majestic and mysterious.
3. Thistle do. It’s tiny, pretty and yeah play on words was witty.
5. Pinoy purple goodies galore
6. Venice Carnival player
7. Purple rain down under
8. But wait there’s more, click here to see all the entries.
I already posted one for today’s weekly photo challenge here and then I remembered this one. Perfect for this week’s theme. This is a video grab of me inside the zorb, screaming my head off.
Have you ever tried zorbing? Basically, you go inside a ball and they roll it down a hill. Fun! The manongs said it would take 22 seconds to get to the bottom of the hill. That’s not too long, right? Well… if you are inside the ball and in a never ending ground-sky-ground-sky phase it will like forever a day. Absolutely fun!
In my recent travel to Davao, friends and I ate some durian on the street. This is the first time for me to taste this ewwww smelly fruit and I was pleasantly surprised that it was really delish. Stinky but absolutely delish.
When we passed by the vendors, the smell could easily drive you away. But after one bite, you will be hooked and the smell won’t bother anymore. I do believe that I started to smell like durian also kaya I can’t smell it na.
Happy rainy Saturday folks!
Here’s my contribution to this week’s photo challenge. Found momma and her babies when we visited Ilog Maria.
For the weekly photo challenge, I’d like to share with you Mr Motorcycle Man in Yellow. Picture taken with my camera phone (errr this is my only camera haha). Distortion from the bus motion, windshield and the rain.
I like these 2 because the rain and the windshield made them look more like paintings than photos.
Another perfect weekly photo challenge theme, swak and sakto for the photos I took this weekend.
Indulge. After a crazy work week, I took time off and went with friends to Anawangin. It was a perfect place to just sit back, relax and indulge in some down time.
When was the last time you slept under a tree?
When was the last time you looked at the clouds?
When was the last time you walked to check out what’s beyond the river bend?
When was the last time you sat on a river bank and just watched it flow?
When was the last time you climbed a hill?
When was the last time you waited for the sun to kiss the horizon?
When was the last time you saw the stars appearing one by one in the sky?
I haven’t done all these things in a long long time. I indulged.
Whenever I travel, I always try to find where the locals go and eat. I find that it’s a great way to experience a new place.
This is a nasi lemak. It is a typical breakfast in Malaysia. It’s fried rice served with anchovies, egg, cucumber, roasted peanuts and sambal. I saw people ordering milk tea so I added it to my order also.
Pretty much similar to the Pinoy SiLog ( fried rice + egg + a fish or meat dish).
I had this one rainy morning in one of the restaurants near the Central Market in KL.
And this filling and yummy delight only cost me MYR3.80 (about Php52 or USD1.20).
The Philippine tarsier is a shy nocturnal animal that leads a mostly hidden life, asleep during day and only active at night to hunt food. – Wikipedia
They have buggy eyes, well formed hands and very shy (or scared). A tarsier is so small. The one in the photo above is probably as big as my palm only.
We didn’t go into the wild to see them though. In Bohol, they have set-up centers were tourist could interact with the tarsiers.
Flash photography is a no-no. It will hurt their eyes. Me and my trusty iPhone pose no danger to them, but there were some who are a bit careless.
I do feel sad for them. I wish Bohol could set up interaction centers that wont take these fragile creatures away from their natural habitat.
This is one opportunity that I never miss every time I take an overnight flight.
At around 4am in the morning, I always make sure that I am awake and looking out my window. I love watching the sunrise but the sun making its way up and over the horizon is simply spectacular.
