last sunset of 2008.....


Still feeling the holiday
fever with it's effect on my
body ( stress), and wallet.

.......while we were very excited here in the Philippines, my students in Korea thought it was just another ordinary day. Let's forgive them, they have their own New Year's day celebration based on the LUNAR Calendar which eventually falls Jan. 25-27 this year. That's the BIG DAY for them.

And if I may share, it has been their custom to climb a hill or a mountain and see the last sunset of the year and the 1st sunrise of the new year. So, my friend JOSH who is also an ESL teacher for KOREANS thought of doing the same thing.

I would like to show their pictures
of the sunset in PUNDAQUIT beach
with the CAPONES Island and
ZAMBALES mountains as background~~~~


Seems like time elapsed photography right?
and the mountains of Zambales also provide
a majestic view.


who wouldn't fall in love to this place.
I consider it home away from home.

and with these pictures, I hope to spread love this 2009.

I love you all. haha
