James and Sherryl SDE

2:04 PM
After a month and a half of rest, I'm back in the wedding scene. Last May, I had my sudden exit in my previous beloved group, Seed Interactive, which i helped build and worked hard for 2 years. I kept silent and tried to work things out on my own. People told me to apply for work here and there until the opportunity came for me to join Trebor Z Audiovisuals. Yep! I'm officially part of the team :) We had a group meeting once where me and some of my fellows from the previous group were welcomed, taught and oriented all things about the work.

June 23, 2012 marked my first day of job with the team. It was a big wedding when i heard the preps will be done at the Loft of Lantaka Hotel. We were early on the set together with Vista de Lente, who served as the official photographers of the event. They were very kind to lend us their ultra-wide lens which made the epic crane shots. The wedding was held at the St. Joseph Church and the reception at Lantaka Briza extension.

The groom, James, is a shy-type of guy but, Sherryl, the bride was just game. This is their second wedding and they already have two cute little boys. It was an emotionally filled wedding which brought life to the video. I'm happy that i finished the SDE on time and i received good feedback after it was showed :) So here's my debut SDE for Trebor Z Audiovisuals.

I've been very busy with my comeback in the wedding scene these days. I'm back in SDE editing now with a new crew, Trebor Z Audio Visuals, my dream videography crew. It's an awesome job and i'm getting used to the workflow and this whole experience is just amazing. :)

Last saturday, i had my first wedding SDE in Lantaka and it was epic! I hope they will post it soon. Meanwhile, in another room at the same location, my parents are conducting their Induction and turn-over ceremony for the Rotary Club of Zamboanga City East. My dad is the Secretary this year and i'm still the one in charge with the programme and backdrop designs.

The Rotary theme this year is Peace through Service. The theme logo is Japanese inspired because the Rotary International President is from Japan. It has an origami crane and cherry blossoms. I took the origami concept and created the designs with folded angles and kept minimal as possible. But, im a maximalist so it's still messy.haha. Here are the backdrop and programme designs.

Staycation: Regency, Andy's Satti

5:07 PM
School is back! But for us we're still on vacation. Our destination? Zamboanga! This is what we call "staycation", where you go vacationing at the place where you stay. The most important thing is that you are with you're family and you're having lots of fun. Actually, my ate is here for a month-long vacation coz she's working in Cebu. While my brothers and cousins are still on their enrollment, we're making the most out of the last few days before going to school.

June 4 - We decided to wake up early for a morning dip at the pool. We went to Astoria Regency seven in the morning. Wella borrowed his friend's DSLR camera so i took the opportunity to learn how to use it. Here are some of the captured moments of our random escapade.

We're hungry already so went to Andy's Satti House at Tetuan for our breakfast. The weather was gloomy so Satti was the perfect food for us.

Andy's Satti House is located at Natividad Street, near Universidad de Zamboanga

Satti is a Tausug food very popular in Western Mindanao. 
This is the "puso" or rice which is wrapped in coconut leaves when cooked.

The "ulam" are various grilled chicken parts such as liver, heart, gizzard or chicken meat. But the basic ulam is the "stick" which is beef meat (see photo below). Of course it's halal-certified , which means no pork! :D

The usual sight in a satti house has this grille. The huge pot contains the hot sauce which you can order as much as you want.

zamboanga city travel food andy's satti tetuan tausug food
The sauce is made of several spices (like curry, oregano, labuyo), tomato sauce, bagoong, flour and starch. This is the key for a good satti. Different satti houses have different recepies and combinations. Some put peanut butter which i like if blended well. Here's a blog on how to make satti.
