Discover more of Philippines through #SinoPinas

#SinoPinas founder
Karl, Alexis and Raniel
Isa ang instagram ngayon sa mga nangungunang app sa smart phone o android phone ngayon parang naging kombinasyon na ito ng twitter and facebook kung saan pwede ka magpost ng mahaba pero witty at maglagay ng larawan na talaga naman magbibigay sa ito ng pansin hindi lamang sa ito kundi pati sa mga mahihilig gumamit nito lalo't pa sasamahan mo pa ito ng matinding hashtag na talaga naman dadayuhin ka ng mga iger people (tawag sa mga gumagamit ng instagram)
Ang #SinoPinas ang isa sa mga active community sa Pilipinas ngayon kung saan ipinapamalas nila ang aking ganda ng ating bansa.

Ang #SinoPinas ay itinatag ng 4 na influential people sa social media na sina Alexis Lim, Raniel Hernandez, John Austria at Karl Ivan Jover Presentacion.

Kaya naman noong nagkaroon ng isang exhibit ang #SinoPinas ay hindi na ako nagdalawang isip pa na pumunta sa lugar na iyon lalo na kasama nila sa exhibit ang ilan sa mga sikat na instagramer ng bansa liban dito ay makikita ko na rin sila ng personal hindi lamang online, hindi ba? Sabi nga nila bakit mo papalagpasin ang oportunidad kung alam mo naman sa sarili mo na kaya mo itong gawin.

Kaya naman pagkatapos ng munting program nila sa exhibit na iyon ay tinanong ko sila kung maari ko ba silang mainterview lalo't pa na isa sa kanilang founding member ay hindi ko pa talaga nakikila ng personal. Kaya naman noong malaman ko na pwede laking tuwa ko sapagkat bihira ko lamang sila makasalamuha sayang nga lang noong time na iyon ay hindi sila kumpleto.

Tara samahan mo akong kilalanin kung sino nga ba si #SinoPinas.

AXLPPI : Anu ba talaga ang #SinoPinas?

Karl Ivan Jover Presentacion : We're a community of instagrammer in twist of discovering Philippines.
Raniel Hernandez : Everything about Philippines, exploring more about Philippines, one destination at a time.
Alexis Lim : Yung etymology bakit naging #SinoPinas, so show to know parang we want to per-sonic ung Philippines, we want to treat it, hindi na it eh. Treat them as person as per city.
Raniel : So parang sino ba si Pilipinas? We knowing, trying to know who Philippines is, by traveling one place at a time .
Alexis : Parang to answer sino Pinas, we used to hashtage (#) Si(insert the place or city) for sample #SiManila or #SiMakati is serve as a tracker to every city na napuntahan natin or mga province. So pagsisearch siya sa instagram parang #SiPulag, #SiMakati lalabas na siya dun. Its easier to the people to see those places.
Raniel : We're helping people to see different location or spot in every province, every  corner of the Philippines by using the hashtag(#), so if you search any place you can see different photos or some of them undiscovered places pa.
Karl : We organized instameet din para to everyone halimbawa they want to join us. To meet other people din who are passion to photogaphy and travel
Raniel :  Also more initiating instameet to push people to travel around the Philippines, so trying to push everyone I mean in a way na we're organized the event like instameet, photography meet-up and explore one place in the Philippines with everyone.
Alexis :  Being part of #SinoPinas parang it is us to be a role model for people na traveler. So we're initiating to do our own travel aroud the Philippines din parang mainspire ng people or malook-up din ng mga people ng mga taong ito na hindi lang kami basta #SinoPinas na ginagamit lang namin ung name #SinoPinas for traveler, we want to a travelers talaga.
Raniel :  We want them to realize that travelling is not hard, its easy so as you see walking to somewhere to a street that travelling already.

AXLPPI : After ng #SiManila, ano yung naging next?


Alexis : Yung next one namin parang 5 months later ay 6 months later ayun ung Corregidor it was May.
Karl : Everything we organized from the tour kasi they only have one company sa Corregidor.
Alexis :  Parang ito ata ung of soure instameet. 
Raniel : We're not expecting na madami rin ang pupunta given na may bayad siya tsaka kanya-kanya siya .
Alexis : More pricey ba yung bayad so parang more expecting, sabihin na natin successful na siya kung 20 ung umattend pero umabot pa siya ng close to 40. So super proud kami doon. Then yung the next one is yung anniversary namin,
Karl : Ung anniversary instameet last November sa Mt. Pulag. Bakit nga ba Mt. Pulag pinili?
Alexis : Mt. Pulag parang mas challenging?
Raniel : Well kasi ayun nga #SinoPinas kasi is basically is hindi naman focus pero  we're open to make the community grow, we ask them kung anu ung prefer place nila to the next instameet-up, so most of them said Mt.Pulag. So why not try natin Mt. Pulag kasi karamihan sa kanila first time makakapunta sa Mt.Pulag, so why not try it and them ayun.
Alexis : Community First.
Karl : We gather for the sponsor ganyan para we have something to give them. We partner sa Grid Magazine din and we have feature din sa Grid Magazine that will be release on the next issue.
Alexis : For 2016  are plans basically more of travel muna parang kaming group (kaming apat) and then meron din travel with the community.

After this interview  I Just realized na masarap talaga magtravel sa Pilipinas lalo na kung kasama mo ang mga barkada mo o hindi naman kaya ang pamilya mo, hindi ba? Ika nga ng isang awitin "Piliin mo rin ang Pilipinas Kakulo ang kwintas ng perlas, Piliin mo yakapin mo, Kayamanan nyang likas
Piliin mo ang Pilipinas" so maraming dahilan kung bakit mo nga ba pipiliin ang Pilipinas, hindi ba?

So anu pa nga ba ang inyong hinihintay, Discover more of Philippines through #SinoPinas.

Muli maraming salamat sa founder ng #SinoPinas sa maikli ngunit makabuluhang pag-uusap!
