Facade of Mabuhay IT park

IT’S MY first time to enter the Mabuhay IT Park in General Santos City when I attended the training on microcontrollers and robotics. There Mabuhay IT Park houses the Project S.H.E.E.P. of the Local Government of General Santos City that provides free trainings on a number of applications like Computer Graphics, Multimedia, Music Education, and even workshops for call center agents.

The Mabuhay IT Park  is located at Ced Avenue, GenSan. Visit their website for more details.

Sunrise at the Peak

sunrise at bundol peak

LAST WEEKEND, after the stressful seminar-workshop I facilitated for student journalists in the Division of Sarangani, I took a trip to Bundol Peak, in Barangay Bagacay, in my hometown,  Alabel, Sarangani Province. I just love watching the sun as it slowly rises above the mountains that are beginning to gain lush back again, probably a result of the greening project of the government.

Bundol Peak, being one of the highest points in the area, provides a good vantage point to view Sarangani Bay in the west, and the river and the mountains in the north.

Bundol peak, however, is at a risk of extinction because of the quarrrying activities that’s going on in the area. Although it has stopped now, I am sure, one day, the landowner will continue the works and we will eventually find Bundol Peak a barren flat land.

Night Trekkers

trekkers in the night

A BLANKET of mist enveloped the trail as we began our night trek to Sanchez Peak in General Santos City.

I was part of the lead pack, so we were ahead of all the rest of the trekkers.

It was already drizzling when we were about to assault the steep slope. When I looked behind me, I saw this beautiful sight. Beams of light from an incandescent light bulb are filtered by the leaves of trees. The mist made the beams even more visible.

The monochrome look of this photo is natural. There was no alteration of the color of this photograph.

WE WENT to Gumasa last weekend. Gumasa is known for its pristine white sand beaches that are likened to Boracay. There were plenty of driftwood and other decaying materials when we went there. There was a flood that hit the town of Glan where Gumasa is located. But they were quickly cleaned up by resort owners. Gumasa still has its enchanting beauty.

Colorful Costumes


WHILE SCANNING my files, I came across this photo of my fellow participants in an English Language Camp. We were asked to perform a cultural presentation during the culmination night. My group decided to present a T’boli dance. The females, however, wore B’laan Costumes. The male one wears T’nalak, a T’boli cloth. The T’bolis and B’laans are local cultural groups here in Southern Mindanao.

We had a quick shoot at the lawn before our performance. The photo above is one of my better shots.
