  • THE SCENE STEALER.

    'Kodaker' was our funny old slang for a photographer back when it was the popular brand.

    I am a proud Filipina from Davao City (Dabawenya). I write a column for two newspapers, shoot and write for travel magazines, blogs, 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 retro memorabilia. 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.

    Taiping, said to be the wettest town in Peninsular Malaysia, is blessed with Taiping Lake Gardens, the oldest public botanical gardens built on top of an abandoned tin mine in 1880. Giant, century-old rain trees (“angsana”) thrive on fertile soils lining the manmade lake; branches are home to cute Dusky Leaf monkeys. The stunning garden is a sprawling 64 hectares of ten scenic lakes and ponds, lotus pool, charming bridges, jogging tracks, kids' playground, camp sites and wildlife night safari, all surrounded by tropical plants, trees, birds, flora and fauna. Hotels are scattered around the dreamy landscape and I stayed in Flemington Hotel. Make your life spectacular. Laugh. Cry. Learn. Love. Live.

Tai Hok Huot Coffin Shop, owned by Cambodians of Chinese descent, sells coffins and funeral services. This long thriving business is to die for. Oh but wait, a coffee shop is just next door. That will perk you up. ©Jojie Alcantara Eight is enough.
