Images Asia Magazine Aug-Sept. 2010

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to feature the fine artisans and scenery as backdrops or props for the shots in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

These were all shot at the end of February 2010 for their April May 2010 Issue. It was a fun 2 day shoot. The city of Puerto Princesa, through the kindness of Mayor Edward Hagedorn, sent the crew to our most popular tourist spots, and one of the nominees as one of the new 7th New wonders of the World, the Puerto Princesa Underground or subterranean River.

Thanks to the photographers, MJ Cachero who took the magazine issue shots and Voltair Fernandez Domingo for the behind the scenes shots, with all of us under the sound direction of Images Asia Magazine publisher, Ernest Gonzaga.

 Shot at Lotus Garden Restaurant and Suites, one of our favorite restaurants at that time, the food is great and the ambiance at night to us, is one of the best in Puerto Princesa.  Fine pineapple silk scarf by Rugungan sa Tubod weavers. I'm addicted to their fine scarves and have a collection of them going.

GNN Talk News TV by Annete Ablan

L to R: Annette Ablan, Dave Dewbre, Diana J. Limjoco
March 11, 2010 We were guests on GNN Talk News, hosted by Annette Ablan while we were in Manila. We are trying to pass the word on about electric motor bikes and electric tricyles as an alternative to vehicles using fossil fuels. We were able to go in depth on the pros and cons of the technology as it stands today and we feel the benefits far outweigh the cons, as long as people know and learn how to take care of them. And the retailers should have full mechanical support of units. Otherwise, it's a bust, leaving disillusioned first time electric vehicle buys with a bad taste in their mouth.
