The Great Escape

Rediscovering life in Palawan Philippines

The Land Where I Was Born 005

Random photos and thoughts about the Philippines

Our environment, our experiences, and the people we choose to surround us shapes us into who we are. In this series I search the web for thought-provoking images about the Philippines, the country I was born in and which I am now just discovering.

Kid and shark - El Nido

“Here, thousands of islands scattered over the Southeast Asian sea hide a dark and sinister secret. The waters are teeming with ravenous sharks, and the land provides no refuge. Deadly snakes rule the jungle. And the furious storms can break even the strongest of spirits,” the voice over said. – Survivor Philippines Official Preview, May 13, 2012 

Asia - Philippines / Crucifixion

Crucifixion. The Real Deal.

Fans go gaga as Grammy Award winning singer Lady Gaga arrives under heavy security at the Makati Shangri-La last night. Organizers are providing the singer heavy security blanket in the wake of protests by several Christian groups who claim her songs mock Jesus Christ. – The Manila Bulletin, May 20, 2012
