How to Enjoy City of Lights with Huawei P9

Huawei P9 review, Huawei P9 smartphone
Hello Ladies!

It’s been a gloomy days here in Manila, we blame it to this autistic weather and no matter how much we LOVE to go out and have some fun, we Asians are not like people from the West, we prefer to lurk indoors while enjoying our hot cappuccino / tea, in my case sitting next to a warmer place at home and happily reading my favorite book, which has been lying next to my bed, untouched.

Ohh these gloomy days! When can I see Mr. Sun Bright again! Hahaha!


When can I enjoy the City of Lights each night?!

Oops, I’m not talking about Paris for City of Lights. I’m talking about your own city of lights. Mine is Manila.

I like to enjoy my city at night time. And take some interesting photos of the night, including people with lots of stories to share. I always have my camera phone with me, fully charged and enjoy the night while walking back home from the hectic work schedule.

And with these very gloomy nights, well I admit it is difficult for me to roam around, and take some photos. So I stayed home for and think of things – including the next hobby I will be interested in just to keep me occupied. I was thinking of learning how to paint, but I’m not a totally artsy person.

I tried and tried, but I haven’t finished a single one.

Maybe my heart wasn’t there and I’m distracted with something else’s.

But anyway I will never give up…

I’m thinking of a possible hobby that I could do with my smartphone coz it is the thing I always with me.


So recently, I got to think how amazing technology is, especially with our smart phones. As a content curator and millennial specialist, I am really fascinated of how much this small palm machine could do and help simplify our life.

I could easily captured those moments for just a click, polish and edit these photos before publishing and sharing to my friends, take some video clips and incorporate some fun stickers, etc. etc. And its craaazzy!

Recently, I just that I can do painting with my phone!

And I was like “What? Is this for real? I can do painting?”


My creative side is so excited. I mean its awesome thing to do with smartphone. And with smartphone Huawei P9, I can possibly to those artsy creation using its cool feature, the light painting mode. Honestly this feature is something new to me and I’m excited!

Painting with light is such a fun technique that you don’t need a degree or expertise to make it. All you have to get is a camera capable of long exposure, then lights (you can use flashlights or anything), a tripod (especially if you have a trembling hands) and a darker space, and voila = your first light painting!

I have my digital camera and DSLR cam with me, but I’m a kind of lazy to tweak my camera for that, so I am use Huawei P9 phone to do the work. In just an easy tweak (which I find it so easy, for a busy girl like me) it helps me to create nice abstract light paintings. Check some of my captures.

Few days ago, I was in Manila along Roxas Boulevard were I had a client meeting. It was a long meeting and yes it went pretty well. So after my meeting I went pass in the public park near PICC. And in the middle of slight rain, I realized how beautiful this city at night time. I honestly haven’t appreciate it during day time, because of the buzzing noise, those busy people going back and forth, its cloudiness which turns out are smogs.

And that night, it was a shame not to take a photo of that beautiful moment. Using the light painting features of my Huawei P9, I created a much fun and exciting output something that it looks like dancing fairies at night, something that gives me fantasy in the middle of reality of life.

Ohh yes, these little things makes us smile and no matter how buzzing our life is, and how many days this rain will last, there is always that little light that shines for us.

Huawei P9 makes my photog-junkie-crafty-blogger-side more fun-tastic like ever.


This makes me unleash my creativeness, and enjoy the gloomy city of lights.

Look how gorgeous the lights are! It’s like a disco in the 90’s ready to shake your ass-off!

This photo was taken right outside my work building during the rush hour. It looks like there’s a car speeding competition, unleashing its nitrogen whatever, LOL. It’s full of testosterone!

This is my favourite – so dreamy!

This looks like my childhood fantasy with cute aliens and heels! Hahaha so funny!


Okay no matter style you do, and medium you use – do it and unleash your creativity. Be free to be yourself, in art there is no perfect strokes, no perfect designs, there is no perfection. Art is art and they are all unique. I’m not a professional photographer, not a super-geeky chick but I know that most of you will like Huawei P9 just like me.

If you are not a fan of light-painting mode, you can switch back it regular photography mode, an enjoy snapping interest things, just like this ramen selection I’ve took recently.


Isn’t it so pretty?!

I’m so freakin glad that Huawei P9 have this soo cool feature that I could incorporate to my blog. It is so user-friendly, I haven’t got problems with its functions plus the battery last way longer.


Now I can bring my new Huawei P9 along with me like every day without worrying about its weight, unlike my DSLR. Anything, it is so simple yet stylish that it actually looks good on my fingers.

  19. Firstly, those pictures are wicked awesome! I love playing with the exposure speed on my DSLR, I'm definitely into trying it on my phone. Also, the copywriter in me is questioning your use of "autistic weather" in your first sentence.

      Yeah, sometimes I use odd words and play it together just to highlight the word or a definition/situation, so that my readers in ALL WALKS OF LIFE / RACE / AND CULTURES would understand.

      You can also do it by manually adjusting the ISO of your phone. Ah I'm so thankful that light-painting mode is also activated to Huawei P9, coz I have no patience on manually tweaking it, hahaha
