Today in pictures

Posted by Abi Kwok on August 22, 2008

Today was a tiring day. I got home at 9:30 p.m. after being stuck three hours in traffic; my legs are aching because of a 1 hour walk (total); and my stomach is killing me. But I got pretty pictures 😀

Today I was at Roxas Boulevard for the 12-hour ‘Truth Fest’ there. You read it right, 12 hours. No, I did not finish the entire event good Lord o_O.

Anyway, I tinkered around (again) with my SLR and here are some photos I took:

If I must say so myself, my photography skills have greatly improved *gloats*. 😀

A[nother] day of firsts

Posted by Abi Kwok on August 6, 2008

Today I was shoved into the Senate beat, which would make it my first time inside the well-hidden Senate building in Pasay City. As a newbie, I was so star struck: seeing a lot of senators, feeling the pressure of being in an actual beat, and mingling with other reporters. I was on a high. Of course, the pressure and anxiety were there, but I tried hard not to let people look down on me.

Hey, just because I’m young and I’m new doesn’t mean anyone can push me around 🙂

Anyway, I can’t help but take a couple of photos from the Senate.

I’m really on a high right now, although I feel so tired and I feel like I’m about to get sick. It’s the weather, ack.

Here are my stories for today:

(UPDATE) War imminent if MILF land deal is signed–critics

(UPDATE) Senators want Esperon sacked

Senate concurrence of JPEPA ‘virtually assured’

Piñol brothers decry military ‘neglect’ of North Cotabato

Foreign media condemn broadcaster’s shooting
