  • THE SCENE STEALER.

    'Kodaker' was our funny old slang for a photographer back when it was the popular brand. I actually do workshops for Canon. : )

    A proud Filipina from Davao City (Dabawenya) I write a column for two newspapers. I shoot and write for travel magazines, and other commissioned projects. My crazy adventures turned me into a photographer. I am also a nutcase artist who paints and draws caricatures.

    As a solo traveler, I have strange habits of hoarding funny signs, Asian horror films, weird artifacts and 80s memorabilia (MJ is my pop idol). This blog is the Scene Stealer, because I quietly capture candid scenes of humanity and surreal visions of nature (living in a magical world despite hard times).

    As a photojournalist, I love aerial, travel and culture in exploring destinations. Now a semi-retired TV host, I endorse products on the side and do charity works. This blog features my artistic journey, with inspirational quotes. My published articles are in another blog.

    All photos are mine unless otherwise stated. I only wish for respect, permission and courtesy in photo credits. Thank you.

    The Chapel of St.Joseph the Worker (Chapel of the Angry Christ) was built inside the Victorias Milling Compound by the family to serve the spiritual needs of its employees.  The avante garde at first caused controversy because the artists created a different depiction of Christ and Filipinized the saints with brown skinned colors and costumes. Today it is regarded as a pioneer in Philippine religious icon art. Visit Victorias, Negros Occidental. Casa Mariquit is a 200-year old house surrounded by banyan trees built for Mariquit Javellana Lopez by her father Ramon Javellana when she eloped with Fernando Lopez at 16. Fernando Lopez became a Senator and Vice President of the Philippines. Open for a "look but don't touch" tour inside, look for caretaker Bonbon.
