    Welcome, I can't wait to see more beauty of the motherland. My "lolo" is from Bicol, a city close by I believe.

    Cheers

    Mabuhay Frank! My family is from Bicol, but I've been living in the US since I was 2. Sad to say, but I haven't been back to the PI since I left in 1980. However, I do plan on visiting this December because my sister in-law is getting married there.

    Ingat and happy shooting. You're going to love the OM-D E-M5. I just got mine today. :)

    Welcome!

    Isn't Naga City in Cebu you guys? Putting it closer to Negros, which is closer to my ancestral island (Negros Occidental to be precise)! :wink:

    I think Naga and Naga City are two different cities. Naga is in Cebu and Naga City is in Bicol. But, I could be wrong. lol

    Hi Guys. Im glad to see quite a number of Filipinos in this site. Im from Cebu but currently based in Manila now. I am a future owner of OM-D, hopefully will get it next month.

    Maybe we can have a gathering or a Phototrek in the near future. Perhaps other non-Filipino members can also join in that gathering. That would be awesome.

    Correction... my grandfather is from Buhi which is a town in the province of Bicol. I can't speak or understand Bicol. I can only understand regular tagalog.

    @Adubo - Damn i wish i can go on a photowalk in PI. My family was always worried about taking me to some "real local markets" and bringing along a BIG dslr(bought M43 after my trip) and a caucasion fiance. :(

    LOL big dslrs plus tourists + public markets = chaos... I grew up here in the PI and went to AU and lived there for quite sometime, went back home to study, haven't left since, although if I"m on track this year, i'll be back in AU early December to work there... my favorite bit of the world outside PI

    New Pinoy member here. I took Photography classes many moons ago. I had my first taste of Photography with film. I still have all my 35 film gear, (Nikon, Leica, Canon P & TLR) except for the medium format that I had sold many years since.

    My digital photography is limited to micro four-thirds and concentrated to familly and party photos only. My other hobby is Horology.

    I am glad to be a member of this group.

    Cheers.
