Here to organize JBOG Jan'2013 : Sinulog Festival Cebu, Philippines (17th ~ 23rd Jan)
I was a delegate of Crossing Bridges 7 to visit Cebu, Philippines in 2010. Always wish to go back to shoot the Sinulog Festival , revisit the charming city and meet fellow Cebuano photographers and old friends. Happen that we have a Cebuano CS member, who joined JBOG May'12, is willing to co-lead this outing.
This is a non-profit outing, est cost will be announced via email or drop me PM. Those who came to JBOG before, would know my style is to keep the cost affordable , without sacrifice much on quality to have fun/good food.

* JBOG (JB outing group) is a jalan/makan/shot around outing that was started Sep2011 to bring small group of CS members to JB for day, and eventually emerged to a regular monthly outing. We’ve been to many parts of JB, Johor and also overseas trip. The participants are a good mix of like-minded gentleman and ladies with a passion for NOT ONLY photography but also to make friends, to have fun and most importantly to have good food.
