I think this is my first time to stop at a sunset here in Kampala, Uganda. You see, I’m not a sunset or sunrise person. Well maybe one time when I was travelling in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I woke up at 3 or 4 AM to witness the most majestic yet crowded sunrise in my … Continue reading Kampala Sunset
As the only OFW of our highschool barkada, I don't get to go to 90% of the gala. May it be a hike, beach trip or just a coffee shop hangout. There was a point in my life that I feel alienated from my friends. I left every group chat. I felt alone. I was … Continue reading Saigon Travel Experience
Last December 2017, we decided to travel to Kenya from Uganda by bus. I took some videos and compiled them to a vlog. Check out my Kenya Travel Vlog here. Thank you!
Two years ago, I wrote this blog post about my near death experiences in Burkina Faso. I got sick with Malaria, missed a coup d'etat and a terror attack. That's why this photo is very important to me. Malaria changed me. I borrowed a couple of paragraphs from that post but you can always check … Continue reading Through the Lens: Malaria in Africa

It's weird that I'm still a trainee myself but I don't have any choice. Also, I'm not much of a talker actually so speaking in … Continue reading Through The Lens: Overcoming my Stage Fright
This photo was taken with my very first roll of film. Literally the first frame of the roll as you can see with the frame burn. I didn't know that this is a thing until I read a post from our Facebook Film Group. There's even a dedicated instagram page (@f1rstoftheroll) for this beautiful thing. … Continue reading Through the Lens: First of the Roll
Uganda has a very centralized system. Majority of the malls/outlets can only be found in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. I'm currently based in Mbale. Roughly three to six hours from Kampala depending on the mode of transportation but I normally take the bus so it's six hours of travel for me. I love … Continue reading Through The Lens: Hopia, Mani, Popcorn
This photo was taken in a small village in Amuria District of Uganda. Like many other villages in Uganda, this one suffers with water scarcity also. Currently, it's the dry season so there's a challenge with water supply. Don't get me wrong. In the cities, there's plenty of water because of the National Water and … Continue reading Through The Lens: Water is Life
Hi guys! I'm doing a new series for my blog and it was inspired by Cordilleras Film Collective's Behind the Image segment. There's no title yet so maybe you can help me with that. But I'm thinking how about Through the Lens (wink) or Off-cam? It's an every other day post so keep your eyes peeled. I … Continue reading NEW SERIES! NEW SERIES!
