Langyaw #02: Cuyo

Categories E-Magazine
The new issue of Langyaw as a downloadable PDF e-magazine

The town of Cuyo, a remote municipality of Palawan, between this province and Panay Island, north of the Sulu Sea has always been a mystery to me. In 2006, I was able to visit this beautiful place for a few days as part of a heritage church book project.

This new downloadable photo PDF is my second e-magazine following last year’s issue #01 and focuses on this far flung town.

From everyday objects to the massive fortress-church. From fishermen early in the morning to a lazy afternoon with some children playing. Or an amble within the quaint town.

This 33-page download consists of 31 beautiful colored images that I have taken when I was there, presented mostly as single page spreads except where there are vertical photographs. Check this download out and fall in love with the place. Click the links above to read my entries.

  1. i used to play sepak takraw wayback elementary and high school. the place is reminscent to my childhood life, very much similar to our place in tagbilaran city.

    this, for sure, has slapped me to remember my forgotten past — a past i’m failing to flee from.

    “Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makarating sa paroroonan.”

    cliche, but its creeping my nerves all of a sudden.

  2. i don’t know. it’ll be too emotional for words to be written, too anchored to metaphysical things that only through silence it can be understood. char.

  3. @fetus: haha. imagine what i had to go through na lang when i had to write about dumaguete. hehe. but it was worth it.
    @estan: paturo ng ebook one of these days! very professional ng dating!
