It’s definitely MORE fun in the Philippines!

Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez Jr. has been quoted as saying, ”What differentiates the Philippines from every other place in the world… is the Filipino. It’s his special gift for transforming what is already a beautiful place into an unforgettable special place.”

“You take two identical islands, put FILIPINOS in one, and it’s going to be more fun in there where they are!”

High five to that.

Well, here are my initial takes to the new DOT tourism slogan which has triggered an avalanche of memes in the internet…

Allow me to share the slideshow presentation of  Kharen Florentino & John Paul Laguilles Nuptials held October 21, 2011 at Rafael’s Farm in Babatngon, Leyte.

This event was a first for us, the documentarists, in so many ways – the prenup was a unique one; we had the shoot at Zip So. Leyte at Agas-Agas Bridge in Sogod, So. Leyte and at a river in Abuyog, Leyte. Also, it was for me the first garden wedding documentation at beautiful Rafael’s Farm in Babatngon, Leyte. The final slideshow shown here also incorporates for the first time both still photos and videos taken during the prenuptials.

Hope you like it.
