The One about the Yongnuo RF-603 C1 2.4GHz Wireless Flash Trigger/Wireless Shutter Release Transceiver Kit

You probably have done your research online and the fact that you stumbled on this review, more than likely you’re not looking at the more expensive Pocket Wizards. Well, like many others, I figured that because a large number of people on the Strobist community are using the Yongnuo RF-603, I had to try it for myself. For its price under $30, you get two trigger/receiver/transceiver and a shutter release […]

The One about Bravo Farms in Tulare

Back in 1995, Bravo Farms opened their first restaurant in Traver, California. Three more restaurants would follow.  Another in Tulare Country (2009), Visalia (2012) and Kettleman City in 2014. When it comes to ingredients and customer service, there are a few restaurants that I truly enjoy in the Central Valley and Bravo Farms Restaurant and Cheese Shoppe is one of them. While the main restaurant in Traver features an actual […]

The One about Shibuya and Harajuku

In Tokyo is the special ward, the fashion mecca for young and hip known as Shibuya. Historically, the area was the site of a castle where the Shibuya family resided in the 11th century. Shibuya is known for its trendy fashion and many fashion-driven buildings plus popular locations such as Shibuya 109, Cerulean Tower, Yebisu Garden Place, NHK Broadcasting Center, Omotesando Hills and more.  And this electric city is absolutely […]

The One about Tom N Toms

Quite often, with friends we hang out at a place that we all just hang out, drink coffee and talk. Usually, they are Chinese or Korean-based coffee shops and we happened to be in Korea town and friends have told me about Tom N Toms. My brother and I went, and for my brother, he said this is the place he often frequents and looking around, I saw a lot […]

The One about the Neewer TT560 Speedlite

The Neewer TT560 is a Speedlite that has received positive reviews from budget photographers in Asia. Released in Jan. 2010, there is not much known about this flash and because it was around the same pricepoint as YN-560, people flocked to the Yongnuo flashes for their budget strobist needs. Well, in August 2011, the TT560 went from $60 to the $40-range and many who noticed the price drop, flocked to […]

The One about the Lonely Planet Make My Day San Francisco Guidebook

For anyone looking for a non-verbose or thick travel guide, the Lonely Planet “Make My Dag” travel booklets are the way to go. A thin booklet, the “Make My Day” booklets allow one to flip between three sections: Morning, Afternoon, Evening So, if in San Francisco, if you don’t want to go to Fisherman’s wharf, flip the Morning section to decide between Golden Gate Park, Alamo Square Park, Lombard Street, […]

The One about TCL Chinese Theatres (formerly Grauman’s Chinese Theatre)

TCL Chinese Theatre (formerly Grauman’s Grauman’s Chinese Theatre) should be on the bucket list of anyone who is a fan of classic Hollywood films (especially silent film). While there are many shops and restaurants nearby and the Hollywood Walk of Fame is all around the area, to see the handprints/footprints and messages from celebrities of yesteryear is simply amazing. In fact, the highlight of my Hollywood trip is probably seeing […]

The One about Iyashi no Sato Nenba

I recently visited Iyashi no Sato. Having read reviews, enamored by the beauty of the area, I wanted to experience the area. We went in March 2015 and I knew that the chances of overcast and the chances of shooting Mt. Fuji would be slim. Accucare was right in its description two weeks prior that there would be snow or it would rain, but still, I wanted to experience the […]
