I'm pilipina residing now in Germany. Everytime I saw some photos about Philippines I feel terrible homesick I missed already the beauty and warm weather of our mother land. Every 2 years I go back to Philippines with my German husband and 2 kids for vacation and this comming December were fly back to Philippines to celebrate X-mas masaya kasi ang Pasko sa atin di tulad dito sa Europe boring at malungkot.
Regards to all kababayan

Thank you for sharing photos of my home country. I haven't been there since 1987. You represented it well.

Its always a pleasure to see my country from the eyes of a foreigner. Great Job! Loo forward to more photos!
I am so very happy to see photos of our village Port Barton.The photos is very nice.
Kersti, you don't understand how your pictures make me feel......makes me miss my country and my family so much. As bad as it is in the Philppines today, economically and politically, those pictures gives the Filipinos something to be proud of. thnx for those pics!
Great pics! It makes me feel proud to be a Filipino.
I think this is the most dramatic and most beautiful presentation of my homeland in photography. The best one i've seen in the net so far. Thanks for all these stuffs. It really made me very proud of my homeland. Best regards.
You have the most beautiful photos of the Philippines I have ever seen on the Net. Thanks for sharing.
My webpage: Filipino at Santiago de Compostela
Beautiful photos. Our search led us to this website as we are planning to relocate from boring, cold Estonia to warm and nice Philippines, at least for a year or two.
Kersti, could we contact you, if you don't mind?
It really seems like a place one has to visit!! I need sun - right now!! great gallery
Beautiful gallery! thank you for sharing such wonderful photos.
"A picture is worth a thousand words"...and you show it with clarity. I can give my life of comfort here to live in a paradise like the islands in the Philippines. God bless the children...
Nice images in your gallery. Learning to change composition to take the subject out of the dead center of the frame would improve many of your images greatly. Keep shooting. I wish I had the opportunity to shoot pictures at such a beautiful place.... maybe someday.
Thanks for sharing your photos. The Philippines is a very magical place. If you have the time you can see the trip I took there:
Scroll down to the Philippines album. Take care.
beautifully and professionally done.lovely pics,stunning scenery.good luck on ur adventures. arnel...cambridge inglatera
Absolutely amazing. Excellent taste in shots. Wow. You've made me realize that amidst the supposed problems of the Philippines, it's really up to you to choose the images you want in your mind.
My husband and I will be visiting Manila and Palawan very shortly. Do you have any advice as to what we should pack or sights/activities you would highly recommend? Any suggestions would be higly appreciated!
Hello, May I use some of your picture for my music video about mu country?
My name is Jose, an artist from the Philippines residing in California right now. I like very much how you capture all the reality about my country. I am planning to go back one day and do the same as you did so I could have the model for my paintings in which Philippines is my subject. Now that I found your impressive works, I could not wait anymore to take photos back home. Can I ask your permission if I could use some of your photos for my paintings.
Thank you very much in advance.

Kersty... Thank you for sharing such beautiful pictures of my native land. I have my 7 year old son working on a heritage report and he found these sights and animals to be perfect.

Excellent Photos. I lived at Subic Bay in the mid 70's, What a neat place to live for a couple years. My father was in the Navy. I wonder if anyone old enough to remember the mid 70's and the tv commercials comming out of Manila ? There were movie trailers from time to time for then the national martial arts star. His name as it sounded was "Lee to laup ey" - "stunt man, action star"
I haven't been able to find any information about him on the internet anywhere. Any hints ??
Once again thanks for all the great photos.
