First of all, let me just get this off my chest -- MY D70 ROCKS!

Just got back from Cebu today after a week's worth of pleasure and business mixed in. "Pleasure" started with a roadtrip down memory lane, to the place where I spent most of my childhood summers -- Ronda. It's one of the smaller municipalities of Cebu located in the southwestern part of the island. Two towns away is its more famous neighbor, Moalboal, known for its pristine dive spots. But my Ronda is where I caught my first fish and my first firefly. Those got to mean something I should say. More than that, my grandparents got me a taste of real rural living to which I appreciate alot. And last weekend, after 8 long years, I was back. Can't help but get nostalgic about the place. In my eyes as a child, Ronda was a paradise. At the end of the day though, the least I could do was to capture its passing scenes.

Note: In Cebuano, BasDaku would literally translate to "Big Sand". And if there's "Big Sand", there's also BasDiyot(I know, it sounds kinky to Tagalogs) which literally means "Small Sand". Both names physically describe the geography of each beach.
