Ilocos in Pictures

Ilocos happened by chance.

Asus Zenfone 3, Camera Features

Have you heard of the saying “All good things come in small packages!”?

As a travel blogger I travel a lot and take a lot of pictures. I had always wished that good cameras came in small packages that I could use in a jiffy and which also gave a reasonable result.
