SEAIR’s InFlight May 2009 issue will out by next week. I am glad to be in the magazine’s InFocus Section. I took the Bomod-ok Falls photo during my 4 day travel in Sagada back in 2008.
Text on the page:
This is the majestic Bomok-od Falls or the “Big Falls”, at some 150 ft. Dantoc took this shot on a trek of Sagada, in the Cordillera region, northern Philippines in October 2008. He started this trek from Banga’an to Aguid, traversing a steep trail, walking by rice field for about an hour under the heat of the sun, before reaching the falls right before noon.
Dantoc likes outdoor adventure like hiking, camping and mountaineering. His photos have been featured in the Reader’s Gallery of Outdoor Photographer Online.
Thanks to Jocas See & Margie Francisco for the feature.

My Turtle Sanctuary photo is included in their Insider Guide’s “Nature Unfurled”. It is about 10 beautiful landscape photos across the Philippines.
The Lone Tree of Turtle Sanctuary in Matina Aplaya, Davao City
The trip to this place was just a side trip of my Mt. Apo climb last April 2009. I asked a favor to Rhonson Ng if he can take me to the sanctuary. He fetched me at my inn around 4am and drove us to the place. I was surprised when I found out that our destination is just located in the city, Punta Dumalag, Barangay Matina Aplaya to be exact.
The turtle sanctuary is a property of Aboitiz but it is turned over to the DENR and to the city of Davao. It is now manned by Task Force Pawikan Davao, an organization tasked to protect and conserve the area. The place is guarded. After the turtles lay their eggs, it will be transferred to a hatchery to protect it from poachers and predators. The eggs must also be protected from rain and seawater.
