There's plenty of all three at Singapore's Vanda Boxing Gym, where company CEO's and other upper management types take time out to punch away their stress.

This time from my home village:

The family pieta awaits the procession:

The Santo Entierro:

The houses here look older and the devotees now look younger, but its nice to know that tradition lives on :)

A Big, Fu@%^ing


It's whale shark watching season in Donsol... if you've never seen a Butanding up close, I suggest you drop what you're doing and head there now. The season lasts until May!

Another bouncing baby...

Kris :)

She's Central Javanese and is at least fifty years old. She was confiscated at the airport when I brought her in from Indonesia, which meant I had to pick her up from the police station a few days later. The wavy lines on the blade is a unique characteristic of this weapon.

Unlike the bouncing baby Leica, though, this baby must never be used :)
