i’m back!

March 5, 2009

I’M back from my PI‘s journey. And as I promised, here’s some of the pix taken by my ever reliable point-and-shoot digital camera, the Panasonic Lumix. I like the said camera because of the bigger LCD viewer and it’s also very comfortable to put inside the pocket, nuff said.

Part 1 (Manila & Cebu)

Rizal Park, Manila

Rizal Park, Manila

When we arrived at the Rizal Park, there’s not much people around and the weather is a bit windy, it’s perfect for taking pictures.

A bit of history – The Rizal Park (Luneta Park) also known as Bagumbayan is the place where our national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal was executed on the cold morning of 30th December 1896 by the Spaniards.
