A trip to south east Asia part 2: Banaue, Camsur and Singapore
Camera: K-7 
Posted By: Zav, 04-03-2010, 12:58 AM

Following the 1st part of my trip in Asia ( https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/post-your-photos/95632-travel-trip-south-east-asia.html ), I will now share some pictures of Banaue, Camarines Sur and Singapore. Ready?

So here I am in Banaue, the famous rice terraces are there, everywhere around.

The landscape printed on the 10000PHP bank notes is from Banaue! I prefer it in a portrait orientation

I have been for a walk in the rice terraces in Hapao, it had the same feeling that I had on the Great Wall.

The feeling that I am walking in the middle of nowhere, following an ancient track.

February was the time for the Ifugao people to replant rice.

Looks as if even there a Pentax makes people laugh! Hey! That's serious photography gear!

Thanks for stopping by Rense. You can find the pictures in a bigger resolution on my flickr gallery:

Unfortunately, I uploaded them in various format (800x600, 1024...), that's why I am sharing in this medium size.

Must be a "hit & run" visit.

It was a "hit & run" plus I caught a cold thanks to the air conditionning everywhere
I had fever and quite a hard time there. I'll post more pictures later
Pablom, it was a good time indeed!

After Banaue, I went to the province of Camarines Sur, which is mainly known for two things: the Camsur Watersport Complex and the Caramoan Peninsula.

The CWC is known as one of the finest cable park in the world. It's really a wakeboarder paradise. But what is wakeboard?

Some says it's snowboard on water, others say it's a mix between waterskiing and snowboard, let's sum it up: it's a nice board sport.
The Caramoan Peninsula is known in France as the place where the 1st season of french Survivor took place.

I took a boat to the island of Aguiranguan. What can you do there? I liked very much the answer of the guide: "nothing". Count me in!

Well "nothing" is not really true.

You can swim, you can take a nap, you can have someone open some fresh coconuts for you.

Oh if you don't care enough, you can also have a sunburn!

It's really a fine place, like a little paradise


This ended my trip to Philippines, I took a plane to Singapore in Manila where I would stay only 3 days (hit & run!).

Unfortunately, the air conditionning made me sick me and I spent most of my time in Singapore in my hotel room with fever
Time to say goodbye to the volcanoes of Philippines.

Thanks axl.
I forgot to say that I had my best pizza ever in CWC: the bicolano pizza. xD

Oh I missed all those nice comments. Thanks to all of you.

Let's finish this trip in Singapour (this will be quick, I had fever in Sg and spent most of the time taking paracetamol in my hotel room).
Septrain I took more than 2 pics there

=> fullsize there: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4024/4446195524_56c7b37aa5_o_d.jpg
I spent some time in Sentosa, more specifically near the Siloso beach, the view on the bay there is quite incredible. You have boats everywhere!

If you go to Singapore, you should go see Chiifei from Chiif Cameras ( www.chiifcameras.com ), the local Voigtlander seller.

I bought a 20mm f3,5 (Ah LBA, LBA...) which is a very fine lens. One of first test shoots have been accpeted in the PPG


End of the trip, thanks for reading having a look at my pictures

Zav, this is a wonderful series. Almost feel that I'm there. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried as they all tell a great story. Thanks so much for sharing them.
