food trip

Whenever I take a trip anywhere, food is always on the agenda.  Sampling the local fare even if it is a trip to California – the local fare being a trip to the local In-N-Out Burger joint =).  That being said this time we went on a trip to the Philippines – Cebu, Bacolod & then to Manila a quick one week trip and hectic traveling but wonderful nonetheless! =)  Here are a few photos from that food trip, enjoy!

the move

I’m not sure why it is that I think I can actually handling so many blogs. I had at one point about 4 or 5 personal ones, plus all the social media, facebook, tumblr, several instagram accounts, etc., etc., etc., WHAT WAS I THINKING?! Well I wasn’t! So in the interest of expediency, ex·pe·di·en·cy look it up its a word, I will focus all energies on just this one and all others now “resolve” to this website, www.oftana.photos plus the fact that its a cool TLD =).

That being said these photos are from a recent JLB event called the pixie shoot.

a visit to the Ruins

The first impression I get is of awe, it is an amazing structure. Though my awe is probably from the fact that the building is almost 100 years old. Another thing after seeing it first hand is that it’s actually quite smaller than depicted in the photos. Regardless, it is a beautiful structure and the story behind it is quaint.
