Inihaw na Liempo

“Oh no, we can’t show this!”

My husband and I chorused upon seeing the video that we just shot. “But maybe I could work on it” I said, trying to convince my husband and for not making him feel bad about his camera work.
“No, you can’t show it, it’s out of focus – the camera was on the wrong setting.”, he said firmly.
As much as I want to share a video blog today, I am unable to. Apparently, the pocket camera’s setting was set to outdoor, the whole video was hazy, which he didn’t notice because of the small screen. “No worries” was my reply as I reviewed the whole segment. I saw that I wasn’t fully prepared. My lines looked too rehearsed, I talked like a robot… I realized I was the one who was not focused.
So here my friends is the dish that was supposed to be on video. Even though the video was out of focus, I’m quite pleased that it came out nicely in my photos.
