Canon votes earth

In the first global election between earth and global warming, Canon Marketing Philippines votes earth. For one whole hour on March 28, Canon will turn off its billboards in the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and in Cebu, along with all lights in all its offices, branches, and service centers nationwide in support of Earth Hour 2009.

“Here at Canon, we take the environment seriously and participating in Earth Hour is just one of the ways we do this,” said Canon Marketing Philippines president Ramon Arteficio. “Climate change is a matter that we cannot afford to ignore and it will take all of our efforts to combat it.”

This is the second time that Canon joins Earth Hour. Last year, aside from switching off its billboard and office lights, the company gathered employee pledges to turn off their lights at home.

OLYCLUB Philippines Conquers Mt. Pinatubo

OLYCLUBPH, the official camera club of Olympus users in the Philippines, with a good bunch of our members went on a trek to conquer Mount Pinatubo last March 14, 2009 via Capas, Tarlac route.

It was a first for most of us so we took the usual one hour shortcut called the “Skyway” on 4×4 off-road jeeps. We are left with around 1 ½ hour leisurely hike that did a good number of calories from us before we are rewarded with the picturesque view of the crater.

We manage to get plenty of good pictures with our Olympus digital cameras and Zuiko digital lenses despite the cloudy and somewhat gloomy weather that day.

The club participants of the trek are very much thankful to OLYMPUS for supporting us and special thanks to our Olympians Resty Familara and Arthur Feliciano for organizing the trip.
