Philippine Underwater Photo Diving Competitions

Diving season is definitely on! Not that cold water ever stopped us. Ok, ok, I’m sure you in Europe and North America are raising your eyebrows and muttering “cold water?” Well, 24ºC is kind of cold for us, but of course you are missing point. This is an invitation to ALL Diver-Photographers of the World to pack your gears and head over to the Philippines beginning April, 2011. Two (2) exciting underwater shootouts competition were announced during the last NUDI Night. NUDI, if I may, stands for Network of Underwater Digital Imagers. We’re a group of avid diver-photographers who...

Anilao Diving

Anilao is considered as the birthplace of Philippine scuba diving. The first dive resorts setup operation in the 1960’s and while various islands in the Philippines have also been known for scuba diving, Anilao remains to be the most popular weekend dive destination for Metro Manila folks.

Wanderlass Adventure Partners Contest Series, Part 2 has concluded and we have a winner. But before I announce it, let me say thank you for the warm response of this contest.

Adventure Partners Contest Series: Part 2

As much as I love traveling, packing had never been my favorite thing to do.  Even if I have a packing list I’ve referred to since my first solo trip, I could never be done in a few minutes. I would procrastinate and finally end up sleepless the night before my trip. It’s really bad if it’s a scuba trip with early dives scheduled the next day.
