Summer is here and it’s vacation time for must of us Filipinos. Beaches, trips out of town, Batanes, Sagada… Sometimes, we’re just hardpressed on what to do during this hot and humid months.
Following my two part post on 10 things to do this summer, this downloadable PDF version, an e-magazine, if you like to call it, is now available.
I’ve always thought of making an e-magazine version of select themes or posts of this blog and, while I’m not sure if this can be called as such, this might be a start in that direction. Preparing this was exciting and I have labored nights for the last few days, selecting and post processing images, edited the text as well as layout using Adobe InDesign CS3.
Some Q & A:
Is this download different from the two part posts? No, it’s just the same list but I’ve used additional images that you would want to see. I’ve also edited some parts of the text to make it more readable and concise. What’s more, as this is a downloadable PDF file, you can browse it offline with your tablet/Ipad or smartphone.
Why is this free? Is there a catch? Well, I want to distribute it to as many people as possible, even those who are not subscribed to my blogs. No, there’s no catch. Just click on the link below and download away.
Can readers distribute it too other than downloading it here? Yes, of course. The more people who can benefit from this, the better and I do encourage readers who have downloaded this one to send it to their friends and family. Or they can also link to this post in their blog.
How many images and what places are covered? The e-magazine consists of 25 beautiful images from 19 places in 11 provinces plus Singapore and Hongkong. If you have downloaded this one, please do drop me a line by filling in the comment form below or sending me an email via the contact form. I would want to hear your feedback and suggestions.

Lovely magazine, Estan! Comment lang, some of the text over the photos are hard to read. Maybe you can put a solid background under the text, and just lower the opacity, para at least kita pa rin yun photo sa likod 😀

Nina, I’ll keep that in mind. Thanx for the suggestion 🙂
