Of Moleskines, Hidalgo and other random ramblings

MAD ABOUT MOLESKINES. Thanks to Benedict (bueno), got na my 2008 edition of Moleskines. After running out of the pocket diary edition last year, resolved to get one very early this time around. The delivery was oh so quick, 1.5 days total. Salamat Benedict. I can get back to my Hemingway mode (naks) again for 2008. 

HIDAL-GO! Went to Hidalgo yesterday to look for a diffuser for my speedlight. Was aghast to find the sidewalk vendors out in full force again. I may not agree with a lot of the ex-Mayor Atienza's policies but he did a good clean-up of Hidalgo last year. Kailangan bang baguhin ni Mayor Lim itong magandang nasimulan? With the vendors back, most of the camera stores are closed on Sundays. Oh well. 

85 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS.O h, it's two months to go before December. Without meaning to, got started on my holiday gifts. Not that I have a lot of dough (on the contrary, business has been slow this year with little prospect for a bonus) but what the hey, time to spread a little cheer. 

MISSIONARIES OF CHARITY. Passed by my favorite charity yesterday and honestly, the devil really breathes down on my ear even moments prior to giving my share. But you know what? It feels good to share, no matter how little. I always believe in karma and good stewardship.T hings aren't that well-laid out now but help my faith, I believe God will take care of my needs. 

WISHLIST. Ain't bad to dream because only the dead doesn't dream. So here it is -- a Nikkor 18-200 VR lens. so I can just travel around with my 10-20 UWA and this piece. either that or the Sigma 18-200 OS.  I've been a very good boy this year, hahaha.A nyway, let's see.
