  • 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.
