Panagbenga 2009: Stress, Pics, and Direk Jay.

I can say that the recently concluded Session Road in Bloom was a success. Though it gave us headaches and made us vampires, we're still happy to be part of this activity. I met some new friends, bonded with my Dad for a few days,a nd even met a fello blogger- well, almost.

I was Sunday night, March 1, 2009. After setting up the booth, we went to Jack's for dinner. And after a hearty meal, I decide to went outside to get some fresh air. He was standing about a meter away from me. Continue Reading this Entry..Wearing gray long sleeves, he was holding a paper looking down Session Road as if he was waiting for someone. I stared at him, and I thought he looked at me too. He looked so familiar to me. And when a woman approached him and walked away, it was only then I realized that that man standing beside me is no other than indie film director and fellow blogger Jay Altarejos. Well Direk Jay films include Ang Lihim ni Antonio and my favorite Ang Lalaki sa Parola. Aw, I should have approaced him and said hello, I thought.

Tuesday morning, I posted a comment on his blog, asking if he was in Baguio last Sunday. And he immediately replied back:


yeah, i was there and was wearing gray long sleeves. sayang, we could have said hellos.
anyways, i'll post if ever i'm going there again.
thanks for dropping by.

After the festival, we went to La Trinidad, Benguet to visit the trade fair for the annual Strawberry Festival. It was fun looking at the products made from this delicious fruit(actually its a fake fruit). among these products were: Strawberry dressing, shake, pies and other pastries, ice cream, and of course, soap. Unfortunately, I was not able to take some photos(the digicam is not working), so we just enjoyed the moment looking at the products.

As I promised, here are some pics I took during Panagbenga 2009. Some were 'ugly' shots but still I hope you'll like it.

I was trying to pload the video for the fireworks display, but the net connection is not good, so I will just post it next time.
