I am a Filipino currently working in the Middle East (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).
This blog started in June 2010 while I was still in the Philippines, as a journal for my experiences at work —which pretty much involved roaming within Metro Manila and some neighboring towns— and for logging other personal stuff (hobby, weekend activities). Photos used in the blog back then were from the point and shoot camera that I had for work (an Olympus FE15,X10), intended for site survey only!. That, I thought, was better than snapping with a VGA cam phone which I honestly first enjoyed (didn’t you?).
In November of 2011, I was dispatched here in the Kingdom. It was an opportunity to get new tools and that’s when I got more into photography, along with the intense curiosity and eagerness to document my experiences in this quite distinct country.
All images here are taken by me, unless otherwise mentioned.
