Photos from November 12th, 2011. Canon Photomarathon + Wai Ying Chinatown + UP AME Monogatari + Swensen's at SM MoA.

I spent much of the day with Harvey and friends roaming around Manila because of the Photomarathon. It was my first time joining the Photomarathon and I kind of regret not putting my all into it (1st prize for our division was a 5D Mark II + a trip for two to Busan, among others) but I guess it can't be helped since I joined even though I was still very sick. (I even lost my voice by the end of the day.) At least now I know the level of skill of the people who joined, and that the contest was all about taking that one amazing memorable photo.

High points of the day were: our amaaazing lunch (and Aian finally realizing that Chinese food is heavenly) at Wai Ying, a fast food joint somewhere in Chinatown; having a mini-mini-mini shoot with Maronne outside World Trade Center; seeing one of my idols, fashion photographer Doc Marlon Pecjo up close; meeting up with Donna while at the UP AME event; seeing a parade of amazing cars around MoA; spending time in a cute ice cream parlor named Swenson's; meeting up with Mara near the end of the day. The day was long and tiring, but overall a pretty good one.
