Trader and I visited Taiwan last weekend and gorged on its cheap eats at the Night Market. Boy, Trader was like a little boy let lose in the candy store. He LOVED everything! I took him to the cheapest place … Continue reading
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
There was a story of a traveler who sees an old man outside a random town. “What type of town is this?” he asks. The old man asked him what he thinks the townsfolk is like. “Places like these are … Continue reading
What motivates me to go on daily is the constant fear of failure — I’m afraid to be and remain ordinary. Some people care about succeeding and excelling. Me? I fear being at the end of the foodchain, settling for … Continue reading

…that moving forward often seems as if you’re moving alone? Aside from a brief luncheon with Top-Climber last Tuesday, I’ve been a hermit the entire week, holing myself up in an airconditioned room for hours to come poring through a … Continue reading
*Backdated October 16 — so do forgive me if a few things are already outdated: In light of this blog’s annual tradition, a brief rundown on how my year of being 26 is in order and what have or have … Continue reading
I think one of the reasons I like placing my thoughts down on paper (or via a blog) is somehow, ideas that were formed in my head suddenly become a lot more real. From their formlessness springs reality, and everything … Continue reading
Since last Tuesday, I’m 27 years old! *Shudders* NOT a good thing when a day before your birthday, you bump into an acquaintance, who after finding out you’ll be turning 2-7 the next day nonchalantly comments: “Oh, so you have … Continue reading
It’s typhoon day and I found myself finishing this list — at long last! It’s been over a year since I’ve come with a list — and at a point of being uber-narcissistic, am again recording my legacy by listing … Continue reading
