For my birthday this year, GP was thinking of getting me a bag or a watch… but i kinda dissuaded him from it. We’re actually trying to save, and there wasn’t anything I really wanted from any designer boutique. What I actually really DID want was a GoPro a Hero 3+ Black Edition. For those of you who dont know, im a gadget gal. I’ll usually pick a new iphone over the latest Balenciaga or Givenchy (Chanel….well…that’s a different story) but anyway I’ve really been wanting a GoPro for some time now. The GoPro is a small camera that can take videos and pictures from a wide angle. It’s a cool gadget for sports as it has different mounts and accessories that you can buy. There’s no screen but you can use the app on your smartphone to view and even control the gadget. I thought it was so cool. I even asked advice from Magic Liwanag who’s a good friend and photographer for Hola, Jayvee Hernandez who’s a tech blogger and the photographer of the stars Raymond Isaac and they all said that it was a gadget really worth getting. And I was so ecstatic when GP decided to get it for me! (He keeps saying he invented it… GoPro Reyes daw haha)
but …. YES!! IT’S AWESOME!! And I was so happy with this perfect birthday gift. Just in time for our Boracay trip! In fact the night before we left I spent hours learning how to use it!
We flew to the island last weekend for a friends wedding (Bong and Tiny Go congrats again:) which was on a thursday, which gave us an entire weekend to ourselves to enjoy the beach. GP and I have been working like crazy recently and wanted some time with each other so this was a much needed vacation for the both of us. We were able to bond with our good friends too over happy hour and every time I’d pull out my camera…. They would joke around and say “Uyy.. Blogger!”. Hahaha! But you know, I’m well aware that I just started this little blog of mine and i respect the bloggers who’ve been doing it for a long time. I wouldn’t call myself a blogger just yet…since for me its still a little weird… Let’s just put it this way, I like a lot of things, do alot of travelling, go on alot of journeys whether just to a new restaurant or a new country and I guess this is my way of sharing it with all of you! and now I get to use my new GoPro gadget. See pictures below!
