Meeting the Master (or How I Finally Got to Meet Romy Vitug)

March 9th, 2010 § 1 comment § permalink

Old School Cool – Tata Romy always uses his light meter when lighting his sets, even when he’s shooting digital.

Ever since I found out that my friend, TV and Film Director Rahyan Carlos, has been working regularly with award-winning cinematographer Romy Vitug, I’ve been scrambling for a chance to finally meet him. Yesterday, on the set of Rahyan’s newest suspense opus, I finally got to shake hands with the maestro whose work has been winning at the FAMAS and the Gawad Urian since the 70s (As a bonus, I also met veteran actress Perla Bautista as well). Any words of wisdom from the old lighting wizard? To become a good cinematographer, you first have to be a great photographer. Ain’t that the truth.

5-Star Insider

March 3rd, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

I thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast at the Executive Club of the Westin Miyako in Kyoto. Every morning, I watched the fog from the mountains gently retreat from the sunrise, until I could finally see the tiled roofs of the temples of Nanzenji.

In almost all of my international trips, I’ve always had the pleasure of staying and dinning at five-star hotels. To date, I have enjoyed the tropical sun at the Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall Resort in Jamaica and at the Westin Resort and Spa in Puerto Vallarta. I have savored high-grade wagyu and otoro at the Westin Miyako in Kyoto and until today I still can’t forget the heavenly Hainanese Chicken Rice at the Meritus in Singapore. I have immersed myself in the warm waters of W Hong Kong’s 76th-floor outdoor pool (the highest in the city) in the middle of winter and I have beaten the heat of Ho Chi Minh City with overflowing cold drinks at the Club Lounge of the Sheraton Saigon. These great hotels are destinations in themselves, and as a tribute, deserve their own album of iconic photographs.
