The New Rufo’s Makati

We were about to go home when my wife invited me to Rufo’s Famous Tapa.  I told her, “di ka pa ba busog”?  We just finished our food photo shoot with our client and now, we will eat again.

She told me  that I have to try their tapa in this new branch located in A. Venue along Makati Avenue.  Since I am with a foodie, its better to take this resto a visit.

I was just have to taste of it but I have cleaned up the whole plate and asking for additional rice.  An innovation for me as I found their sauce enticing. True to their slogan, “Sauce Pa Lang, Ulam Na”.

Tapa is delectable in taste yet juicy and tender. I like the way they cook their fried rice, not oily that made me to crave more.

One of the highlight ride on that day is the the huge ferris wheel aka Sky Eye illuminated by 20,000 multi-colored light bulbs, 32 air-conditioned gondolas that can accommodate four people.

Rising about 640 meters above sea level, the “Sky Eye” as of date is the highest ferris wheel in the country.

My Pre-Debut Shoot of my Daughter

Part of planning the upcoming debut of my daughter was her photo shoot.

Who would be a reputable photographer near our place can take this family momentous event of my daughter?

My daughter asked me that she liked me to be her photographer.  Thanks for that reminder.

Am I really license enough to take those pre-debut shots for my daughter? Yes, I am a hobbyist and this would be my first time to shoot this kind of angles for her.

I might give it a try and the way to experiment it is to my family.

I have directed some of her posts and picked beautiful spots in Nurture Spa Tagaytay as our venue.

These are some my shots and let me know what you think if I am capable enough to be the photographer of my daughter.
