Luke, my Latest Travel Buddy

It was 3 years ago when I first owned a DSLR camera. Out of spontaneity, I named him Harvey. He's my consistent travel buddy - from the extreme north island of Palaui, to the eastern island of Siargao, down to the southernmost province of Tawi-Tawi. He's my only companion when I crossed the borders of Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. He's even there when I was accused as a drug trafficker in Bali, Indonesia. Haha The best part is - Harvey never needed extra care. Sanay siyang madumihan, mabasa, at mauntog. Despite that, he remained to be at its best condition.

                                                          Thank you Harvey sa serbisyong totoo. Sulit na sulit ang pagbili ko sayo... 
                                                                                                   I hope your new owner will take care of you.



Now I have something to admit. It was not Harvey who's with me when I traveled to Misibis Bay, South Korea, El Nido, and Bellarocca. It was Cianna, my housemate Remay's Canon 60D. Cianna's pictures were so outstanding and eventually I got bored with Harvey. To cut the story short (at siguro dahil inggetera ako) I wanted a camera upgrade.

Meet my latest travel buddy...


Luke, my Canon 60D
it's Cianna's twin!


                                                                18-135mm and 50mm lenses
                                               not new. these are the same lenses i used before.


○ For the record, I got confused with switching to Nikon. It's very obvious that Nikons have better color depth and significantly better image quality against Canon counterparts. Despite these, I stick with Canon. I want more natural colors and softer photos. Most of all, Canon cameras fit my hands perfectly. It's as simple as that, I feel Canon.

○ Like Harvey, I also bought Luke from DBGadgets. It's an online shop, pero sushal na sila ngayon. They have a store now in Aphaland South Gate, right beside MRT Magallanes.

○ Plans for the year: None so far. Charot. Pangarap ko makasakay ng 2Go papuntang Caticlan. Gusto ko din mag-India kung afford ko ang pamasahe. Umii-scout pa din ko ng perfect travel buddy for that trip. Batanes, if possible. May flight na ba ulit ang SEAIR? And Jolo, kung isasama ako ni Era.

○ Yes Im very pressured to organize a joining trip. Relaks lang kayo jan. Iisip pa ako kung saan maganda pumunta. If you have suggestions, please drop a comment.
