Cottages at Manjuyod Sandbar

i sketched this from the third cottage, olympia island and negros island is in the background.

There were also lots of gull-billed terns in the area last march and i took some pictures of them

Views from Sipalay Negros Occidental




I would go back to Sipalay again for:
- their grilled chicken
- their fresh tinolang isda
- the fun in swimming and bamboo rafting
- the corals and fishes we saw
- the trek to tinagong dagat
- the tasty carenderia food
- the bodots-loving citizens
- the caves and rock formations by the sea
- the sunset
- the awesome and affordable tinagong dagat resort
- the sheer joy in standing in-line at the one and only ATM machine with the Locals even though we know that the machine will not give us money because of faulty network but still we stand in line because we are hopeful



It's Mambukal once more


My third time in Mambukal Mountain resort. Now i got the change to draw  bigger trees.

I was in highschool when i first went to mambukal on a field trip, that time i stopped drawing for a while and was more into music particularly playing the guitar.

The second time i was here was with my wife on our honey moon.

The Dumaguete City Bell Tower


I have been living in dumaguete for many years and it is only last month i got to sketch this city's monument.

ambak dayon tilap!


Sarrat Church walkway and Bell tower



the paoay church



This is a UNESCO Heritage site. The best thing about skteching what you see is that, you can edit out the tourists. Here we had a real Illocano lunch  at the parish convent courtesy of Rev. Emy John A. Domingo and his  youth ministers.

Gull-billed Terns at the Manjuyod Sandbar

These birds fly close enough to the cottages for me to take these pictures, they swoop down on the water to prey on small fishes and if you throw breadcrumbs on the water, they will swoop down on it too.
