Saying goodbye to 2008 — and hello to 2009!

2008 passed by so fast — where has it gone?  In a way, it seems that 2008 was the transitional year.  It was the year when I deepened my expertise in project and relationship management, in addition to actually making … Continue reading

Surprise, surprise…!

Laos: Vang in the Vieng (Part IV)

I wanted to wake up early because I wanted to try one of two Vientiane’s most famous bakeries, both of which were situated near the fountain. There was the Scandinavian Bakery, which failed to appeal to me at all. Maybe … Continue reading

Laos: Jewel of the Mekong (Part I)

Just got back last Wednesday from an awesome Laos trip. It was great — despite receiving a handful of calls from work, Laos was as far away from Taipei as possible. It was indeed a world of its own, living … Continue reading

What I Did Last Night…

Ate at my favorite Taipei restaurant — Ruth’s Chris, finishing a 12-oz. steak: Beautiful, just beautiful. Check out the creamed spinach, mashed potatoes with onions and garlic mushrooms on the side. Unfortunately, the 12-oz. is just too darn much, so … Continue reading

Wild Weekend (2 weeks ago)

There’s so much that I’ve done, yet so little I’ve written about. Guess, every person only has 24 hours a day, and unfortunately for me, I’ve maximized these hours to the limit. For example, for today, I’ve only had around … Continue reading

Fun Christmas Weekend

It’s been a fairly quiet Christmas weekend for me. With some guy friends, I watched the amazing “King Kong,” which was even better than the original (though I hated the ending), and the “Family Stone,” which was downright hilarious! Warner … Continue reading
