  108. WOW!!! ngayon ko lang nabasa ito, lito!
    Ang husay, congratulations for such achievement in lonely planet. i just bought LP-Asia edition with Malapascua beach in Cebu as cover. I thought a fellow Pinoy (photo-blogger) writer/photographer made the collaboration but not, the photos taken in malapascua and the text of the article were both done by foreigners. Ang sarap siguro magtrabaho doon ano? trabaho ba iyon? hindi--kundi, passion!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Thanks a lot, Docgelo. My gf buys me LP books too. I want to visit Malapascua in Cebu too. Punta tayo don pag uwi nyo ng bansa. :)

    Naisip ko din po yan, Doc. Masarap nga sigurong magwork sa LP at sa iba pang travel shows. :)

    Happy weekend. Ingat po lagi.
