It’s time again I do both the writing and photography chores on assignment in PAL’s Mabuhay Magazine May 2010 issue. And it’s great that it’s on a familiar place in Mindoro which is San Jose. Last time I went there on assignment, I covered the islands, scenic beaches and also the cultural and indigenous aspects of the region. This time around I delved deeper into the country’s history as it celebrates its 100 years and discovered the significance of MacArthur’s “Second Landing” that led to the country’s liberation.
It was an interesting assignment as it was the first time I got a little sick that I had to visit a clinic. But being under the weather didn’t stop me from getting the necessary information and taking photos for the story. Also on this issue are some of my takes for their Zamboanga City story and a small write up on Mindoro’s White House
