Jaymee's Beerday

Some shots during my cousin's beerday celebration at Malabon. I knew I wasn't nearly drunk when I took them but most are just out of focus. Actually, you can say all of them are. I think I have to avoid shooting while drinking.

This one was taken by Kuya Paeng with his flash device attached to my FM2

Feast of the Black Nazarene

Three weeks ago, out of nowhere, Gino (aka Mr. Pogi 2011) and I realized that we didn't have anything to do on a Sunday. So we decided to ready our cameras and witness ourselves the Feast of the Black Nazarene.

We found a spot  with a superb view of the procession, which was actually on top of a waiting shed in Lawton, there we watched replicas of the Nazarene and devotees en route, while waiting for the Black Nazarene to pass through.

We were told by some devotees that the procession was moving slowly. And they were right. We waited for roughly 2 hours until the Black Nazarene arrived at the scene, and it was worth every second of it.

It was really an overwhelming experience, especially when the Nazarene was in front of us and everybody was cheering "Viva!" while they wave their white towels.

It was hard to get a good shot of the Nazarene since it was surrounded by the precession's marshals, who's task  were to eliminate those who dare to climb their fortress, catch towels thrown at them, then throw the towels back to the wrong people.

After that, we were in for a treat at Golden Fortune's eat all you can Shabu-shabu which Gino said was a bad thing for it's a kind of drug... Nevertheless, thank you Sam for this very heavy meal.

And that's about it.
