Free Download Camp John Hay Event Map

Camp John Hay in Baguio City is one of the top wedding destinations in the Philippines. Its high altitude location is the perfect venue for a country spring or cool weather wedding themes.

A college friend recently contacted me to create a map of Camp John Hay for her sister’s wedding. Since it’s very rare to find a decent map of the place, I plotted the CJH using existing ones online and created a cute hand drawn piece.

I wasn’t commisioned for this project, so it’s my pleasure to give it away for free! Download the Camp John Hay map for FREE by right clicking and Save image as… to your computer.  It’s easy to customize it when you use any design software. I hope this helps!

Spicy Tofu Stew Vegan Recipe

Spicy Tofu Stew











Cut tofu into desired size. Bread regular firm tofu with all purpose flour.

Set saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to the pan and sear tofu each side for about 2 minutes per side. Set aside.

In a sauce pan, add the butter, tomato paste, tomatoes, cumin seed powder, paprika, salt and pepper to taste. Add the potatoes and carrots and continue to cook the stew for another 10 minutes. Add 1 tsp brown sugar. *You may add 1/2 cup of water to dissolve tomato paste.

Now get the saute pan where you seared the tofu and pour the sauce. Cook for 5 minutes. Serves 2.

“Little League” Day 1 of B/W Photo Challenge

My mother nominated me to take the Black and White Photography Challenge. I will be posting photos for five consecutive days and nominating someone each time. To start the challenge, I chose this photo taken two years ago in spring time at Germantown, MD. It was cool how the parents cheered for their sons but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture it.

Rain & Movements


This was during a storm a few weeks ago. I have to leave work as soon as I got in the office when I heard the nearest dam in our city was in critical condition. While waiting for my ride home, I thought I wanted to be productive while standing for an hour at the side of the road. So I got my phone and took random shots of the rainy scene. Capturing people on an ordinary day in Manila boasting vibrant contrast of colors and textures that each has a quick story to tell. I hope you will enjoy this set! 10612355_10152474575498318_488008681_o
