It is the inflight magazine of Royal Brunei Airlines. Three of my photographs were published in its May/June 2008 issue to accompany an article that explores the charming side of Manila -- its historical splendor and cultural legacies.

A special thanks to Ivan Man Dy for facilitating this terrific opportunity!

Please note:
I very much appreciate my articles and photos appearing on fellow bloggers' sites, popular broadsheets, and local broadcast news segments, but I would appreciate even more a request for permission first.
Thank you!

Congrats Eric,

I hope there are more to come!

Is this the Mosque with a 24 karat gold (like the Mosque of Omar in Jerusalem) dome, which the Ayala Development Corp. built?
The second photo looks like the Malacanang facade.

Hope they invite you to stay, "IshAllah!!!"

The photos are just marvelous. I hope your articles and photos get published as a Travel Guidebook. e.g. Lonely Planet, Berlitz etc.

this is great, Eric!!

You do have wonderful pictures! Hope you get more and more assignments like these!

Whenever I get to ride airplanes I always stash away their in-flight mags just because I know that the photos in it are worth keeping! Sayang hindi kami pumupuntang brunei!

Yes, that was from my photoessay on the Chinese Cemetery:

Many thanks, Pusa :)

With the price of oil as it is, a single barrel would be fine with me :)

Thank you, Sidney!

That's the building within the Malacanang complex, Ka Tony, where the last and final photo of Marcos and Imelda was taken on the balcony as they waved goodbye to the Filipinos before they were whisked away on a helicopter, and then on to a plane to Hawaii.

This was the lead photo on my photo essay on the Malacanang Museum, which this building has been turned into.

I'm waiting for Prince Jeffrey's invitation, Ka Tony ... hehehe!

Thank you!

Those inflight magazines are truly wonderful, Bernadette. Their articles are often well chosen and written. And of course, the pictures as well :)

Many thanks!

Thank you, EM!

I am humbled by your kind words and wishes :)

Actually, they remind me of what Oprah Winfrey once said: to keep throwing out there what we love doing, for the universe will eventually reciprocate in kind.

More than the lovely photos, I think its a very positive statement in portraying Manila and sharing to others her unique character- far from the poverty and third-world mediocrity that somehow, outsiders have come to associate with our city.
