Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

Change The Way You See Travel - Mobile Photography

When I was younger, I thought traveling is only for rich and fortunate ones. Who has big accounts, but nahhh you have to be creative, you have to research and plan your travel - inshort DIY so you can save money.

I always enjoy traveling to our province in Bicol and Pangasinan. These are the two provinces in the Philippines I frequently go and Tagaytay which is a 1.5hr drive from my house here in Manila. A few years back, when I still don't own a good SLR and I only rely on my mobile phone so I can capture my memorable memories to places where I travel. And now that I own an SLR, I still use my mobile phone for an unexpected capturing of a subject. 

I enjoy traveling via airplane and enjoying the view on the window seat. Capturing clouds, the tail of the plane, wing of the plane and landscape is priceless for me.

Because of traveling, I became an active person again! I now enjoy hiking, searching for falls, volcanoes and great scenery on top of a mountain.

One of the many things I enjoy while traveling is experiencing local food and especially coffee if the place or country offers it. 

I also enjoy walking around the street at night and day with friends. You will see unexpected subject to capture. These mobile phones are my go-to camera/bestfriend on the road esp if it has a very good camera that can produce quality photos just like the Huawei P9 that has a camera and co-engineered by Leica. It has dual back camera that can produce high quality photos like monochrome, colored, light painting photos and even slo-mo. How great is that?

Traveling makes me more appreciate LIFENATURE, and PEOPLE around especially on how to mingle with them and when I travel abroad with a different culture and belief of a country.

Regardless of different personality, culture and belief, I always gain new friends alongside with the photos I captured, experiences I endure, great memories that will always be remembered and friends (old & new) are the precious gifts to anyone who loves traveling.

Change The Way You See Travel - Mobile Photography


  1. I do enjoy travelling. But what I want to do when travelling is eating different cuisines that I am eating from different places and finding out how to cook those kinds of recipes back at home.

  2. You probably know already but there are some camera lenses you can just attach to your mobile phone if you want more high quality photos. I have a couple of kids and having my phone around to capture those unexpected kodak moments is precious to me.

    1. Yup and its expensive for some vrands like sony

  3. Photos look good, was actually thinking of getting the P9 or the Asus Selfie. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I find a great deal of joy in traveling myself. It's one of the three luxuries that I indulge in. In my last trip, I didn't bring a camera. All my photos were images taken from my phone. I've been meaning to get a new SLR or DSLR but sometimes kase when I'm traveling, it's a bit of hassle to take out your phone and camera - lol. So right now, it's whatever works and whatever's convenient for me as long as it still makes me take nice photos :)

    1. I will not giveup my DSLR. Yet Im planning to get a mirrorless camera cause its handy. But im hoping to win a huawei p9 soon

  5. i'm using samsung note 4 and my phone camera is really quite bad. i'm not sure if it's actually a defect on my phone, or what. but my phone camera gives me grainy and orangey shots most of the time. which is why i always end up using my mirrorless camera and then transferring the photos back to my phone to post on FB or IG.

  6. I am a mobile photographer too! I totally know how you feel about SLR camera, so I am a mobile camera advocate too! Haha, Team Apple over here!

  7. I really like how crisp your photos are! I wish they were bigger though! :O

  8. Travelling is really a great way to spend vacation time away from the hustle of routine life. We learn a lot, we see a lot, we eat a lot of new things. A good camera phone is really an indispensable thing to bring on these trips.

  9. I have a gopro but my go-to camera are my phones. It's really a lot more handy and accessible.

  10. I love traveling and it's been easier ever since smartphones came with better cameras! Taking photographs are now more convenient and it's the perfect gadget to have with you especially in places wherein you have to travel light.

  11. Nice one. It is a pleasure reading this piece of article. Pictures are just a memorable thing for the future. Thanks for sharing

  12. I love traveling. It really doesn't cost an arm and a leg to do it either@

  13. I accept. At some places carrying a dslr is plain cumbersome. And once I was traveling thru a place where camera wasn't allowed!!! So yeah, I still rely a lot on my phone.

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas.
