I’ve been living in Palawan for almost 3 months now. I’m currently based in El Nido, Palawan taking up a temporary job here but prior to that I worked on a very exciting project in Taytay for NoaNoa Island, a Palawan Private Island Estate that is now open for rentals and bookings. I stayed in the island for 11 days working on the design and also taking some of the photographs for the website. It’s quiet, serene and the reef surrounding the island is probably the best snorkeling I have seen. (Take a look at my Underwater Shots here).

On the Insider’s Guide section, Paranormal Expert, Frank Regis takes you to 10 Haunted Places to spook you. Somewhat a rehash of an old feature they did before.

Goldbeyond.com responsive web design (mobile, tablet and desktop)

 

The client just wanted a single page website with everything on it. They needed it “yesterday” since they have the event in the next few weeks. So I got their brochures, soft copy of their text and materials and whipped out the easiest with the most presentable I can muster. Even if it was a 1 page site I wanted it to look nice and consistent with their brochure materials so decided to use their main image as the whole background. Used CSS3 and HTML5 to make it responsive to different browsers. Even it was a single page site, a navigation was still needed to reach the site sections so anchors were used within the page. As an aesthetic addition, I decided to add Javascript Scroll for a more fluid navigation. So there goes a single page website that has a responsive web design feature. Check out www.goldbeyond.com

One of my favorite images from Sagada is published on the October 2012 Issue of PAL Mabuhay Magazine. It’s this boy kneeling on the ground at the cemetery in Sagada during the Festival of Lights celebration or Panag-apoy during Halloween. I just can’t believe it’s been almost 7 years since I took this photo. I was still using my trusty Olympus C750 point and shoot at that time. No DSLR for me then but I thought this picture captured the essence of the festival, remembering the loved ones by burning a pinewood fire or saeng. Lori Blackburn writes about it more on this issue as well as the other Halloween traditions around the globe.
