Sofitel is a place where we chose to stay at before skating competitions or simply go to, to have a fancy dinner at Spiral (one of the best buffets in Manila). We would visit this spectacular hotel every so often for many reasons. This time, we decided to spend the night there since it was the weekend that One Direction had their two concerts at the Mall of Asia concert grounds. To me, that meant really good food, a ton of swimming and super photogenic picture spots. That weekend, I was able to experiment taking photos with many features of my new camera. Yup, this means better quality photos are taking over the blog. Thanks to Ashley, Allyzza and Monina for letting me take photos of you, and Ronan Capili for teaching me the basics of digital photography. I still have a long way to go, but we all have to start somewhere, right?
