About The Blogger

Herbert is a frustrated cook, who always gets chastised by his wife, Jeanne, for leaving the kitchen a mess. He has set aside his DSLR camera and started his advocacy on mobile photography. He won an ASUS premium phone last year, which motivated him to pursue this shift. He enjoyed it even more since he won the most-coveted flagship Huawei phone last May.

Herbert is a Digital Marketing corporate slave for offshore clients as his day job.
