It is a Filipino tradition to introduce a daughter to the public when she’s coming of age, a tradition that’s still practiced until today. On the Spanish era a “Debut” as we call it is only practiced by the “Alta Sociedad” which translates as high class society, a family will sell all their crops and poultry or even their cow just to make sure that the extravagant “Debut” celebration will push through.

I had the chance to shoot some photos and videos of my father-in-law’s 58th birthday celebration last January. Actually it was a double celebration of his birthday and their (w/ mother-in-law) wedding anniversary. It was a late celebration ’cause we only can visit them a week later the actual date. It was a good day for all of us my parents and my wife’s (Jenny) parents have a time to bond before my in-laws go back to Italy. One big happy extended family. Hope you like the photos and video, Kae sure did enjoy posing in front of the camera.
Its been a while since we did an actual team edit. Now we are proud to bring you a simple video that captures what Flipbykes is all about – diversity. Riders from different parts of the Philippines unite on a singular goal that is to support the ever-growing BMX scene. It doesn’t matter if your discipline is Flatland or Street or where you came from – Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, we all came from the same root. It’s always not easy being a rider on a Third World Country like ours but we make sure that there are means to overcome the obstacles that hinders us from enjoying our passion. BMX has been here since the late 70s’ and its here to stay even getting stronger every passing day. Continue reading
January is almost done and I haven’t even put a single post since mid-December. It’s been a busy year-end at work and other personal stuff. I’m glad to begin the year with a project that made me start photography which is BMX. A part from taking snaps of riders I also do ride on my spare time but for now I’m just the guy with camera – let the real pro-riders do their thing. I’m just happy to see how far BMX had become in the Philippines since the late 70’s. I didn’t actually witnessed the 70’s but from old photos, articles and people that told their wonderful stories on how they started in the BMX scene. How they make their own ramps like we do when we’re just kids. The schedule was very hectic and short but it was all made possible by our rider friends (Flipbykes Crew) that assisted me through the whole project. It was just a short time but all-in-all a time worth spending. For more about Flipbykes BMX Shop visit www.flipbykes.com. Without boring you any further here are the photos from the Flipbykes BMX Team photo sessions. Continue reading
