  1. Interesting classes! I'm fascinated to photography since I started blogging. I thought I should invest in a quality camera Looking forward to the reviews.

    On a different note, there is also a cooking class offered in the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines in BGC for an affordable fee per session.

    It always feels good to reinvent once in a while. :)

    1. Photography is addicting isn't it? Especially if you have a beautiful beam of natural light embracing your shot. I'll focus on food shots, landscape and artsy shots might compel me to buy an expensive camera!
