My first time as speaker – trainor in image manipulation

I’ve never wished or entered my mind to be a speaker cum trainor someday, but it happened so fast, as I was the choice by our IT Officer to trained Basic Photoshop lessons on more than 300 ICT Coordinators in three batches at our division office. Just imagine my excitement and nervous because I’ve never done this before tapos of all the people I can teach eh sa mga teachers pa ako natapat haha!

“This is my first time to do this so bear with me” as I spoke infront of the first batch in a rattling voice haha! Good thing the microphone has an excellent line conditioner to prevent surge or something that can cut my voice and not be heard by my audience haha!

Para din pala akong bumobola ng bingo sa video haha! :))


UPP flies at Iglesia ng Dios (video inside)

Woke up one morning and was surprised to be a member of a new and fresh UAS/UAV drone group called Unmanned Aircraft System Pilots Philippines (UPP). Actually, PMFC muna pala tapos in just a matter of few hours naging UFC naman bago naging UPP hehe.


The logo I designed for the group.

It was really a surprised since it wasn’t planned. We had a small gathering the night before with my fellow drone hobbyist and creating a group wasn’t in our agenda, kaya nagulat na lang kami, yun pala one of us (sir Fernan) created the group while we’re dreaming of drones in our sleep haha!

Anyway, we’ve already been flying for two sessions but for our first official on-location aerial sessions, we are fortunate to be invited at the Iglesia ng Dios in Gaya-Gaya, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. A beautiful open space area where a humongous structure for worshipped stand across the location which I’ve captured beautifully with my aerial cam.

If you’re interested in joining UPP, just message me on FB (raredog barcelona) 😀

Flying and Bonding with my Boys (video inside)

Time flies so fast, and so is my drone hehe. Hindi ko napansin mag two months na rin pala sa akin yung quadcopter  ko or toy drone to be exact. I have bought it last year, November 25 for P3,900 na kinita ko sa pagba-blog , so bale this coming 25th pa lang siya mag 2 months, and with that short period of time,  I or we (my family) we’re able to fly it for I think more than a dozen times na rin.


Since I only have one battery, the one that came with it lang yung gamit ko and no spare battery kaya limited talaga yung flying time. Recently lang dumating yung two spare battery na inorder ko from Ebay.

I’m glad I’ve picked The Tarantula X6 over Syma X8C (my first choice). Not only na its much cheaper but It’salso  very fast and much more agile. Maneuverability  wise mejo nakakalito at nakakakaba yung first time, pero once you got the hang of it masasanay ka rin. Like a musical instrument, for example a bass guitar tuner , the Tarantula also needs to be tuned or calibrated before flying to synchronized the motors.

Madali syang paliparin at nakakalibang! This is actually my first try on this hobby and I really really enjoyed it. Dahil jan andami ko na-meet na tao from all walks of life, me mga generation X, pero mas marami sa oldies haha! Tapos siempre nadagdagan mga new friends at acquaintance ko!

At ang PINAKA the BEST sa lahat, later ko lang na realized na I have bonded and shared the joy of flying with all da boys in my family, from my eldest son down to my youngest down to my grand child! Which you wil see on the video I made for this blog post. Enjoy watching and hope na nahikayat din kita magpalipad ng drone hehe.
