Whenever I’d browse through instagram, I would always find myself admiring Jelito De Leon’s IG account. His pictures are superb and inspiring. He could easily turn simple things such as table, chairs, coins, coffee mug, etc. into something instagrammable and pinteresty (Oh, I just invented those words!)

So when the beautiful Cat Juan-Ledesma announced a workshop with Jelito, I decided to clear my weekend schedule and attend the workshop.

The workshop was held at Bungalow 300 in Alabang. It is a beautiful concept store specializing in vintage modern furniture and objects.

Cat was already near the front desk when we entered Bungalow 300. She made us feel welcomed with her warm smile and accommodating demeanor!

Jelito reminded me of  Charles Bukowski’s saying, “an artist says a hard thing in a simple way”. He walked us through the amazing world of mobile photography without intimidating us – specially the non-photographers like me. He used layman’s term as he shared practical tips and tricks. I am amaze how unselfishly he divulges his photography secrets to the group! He also patiently answered each of our questions. WOW! A person who has an amazing skill with such an amazing character!


After the interactive discussion, Cat surprised us with a lot of goodies from sponsors! I’ll let you take a peek into my loot:

 Cat surprised us more when she announced that we have a merienda cena! Hurray! What I thought as a simple merienda turned out to be a special treat!

About Audrey

I am not a typical “girl-next-door”, But I am striving to be a woman of valor. I cannot turn the heads of many people, But I can touch their lives and still be humble. To please my Creator, that is my main goal, To let Him mold me, for me to fit in my role. My other wish is to have a pure soul, And to have a zealous heart like a burning coal. Strength and honor must be my clothing, Purity and honesty, for me is an important thing. To be a woman of principles, that’s what I’m preparing, To make God proud of me as I keep on dazzling. I may not be as perfect as what I want to be, A soldier in the battle that is what I can see. I’ll keep on fighting to solve life’s mystery, To win the battle is the best reward for me!
