"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

chasing the last sunset of 2007

everything is extraordinary."

12.31.2007: bidding bye to a year that was...

i spent the last week of 2007 practically sprinting from here to there and spent the first day of 2008 in a similar way. whew! you can say "LAAGAN!" and i'd just chuckle.

i was still in tangub city with my family when one of my awesome friends -- sealdz -- sent out an invitation to watch 2007's last sunset in OUR iligan. knowing i'd be back just in time, i said yes to the invitation... and la daaa daaaaaaa... swish swish flick! just take a look at the photo album i published in multiply to get glimpses of what i and a few of my hometown-slash-great friends said yes to! it's quite a year-end special.

the wonderful sunset experience was made even better because somebody -- a stranger to us -- approached us and asked if he could take pictures of our group. since it was a dslr nikon camera that we saw him cradling, we didn't dare refuse and we became instant models!

we had fun with the point-and-shoot cameras that we brought with us. we had more fun when somebody aimed his dslr cam at us and the sunset.

actually, with the sunset-painted sky as our oh-so-natural backdrop, only our shadows could be seen in the fantastic shots... but they were such fantastic shots! they'll definitely find their way to our respective friendster (& whatever) pages once we get hold of our own copies.

by the way, ENJOY 2008!
