On Being Connected and Walking Adventures

I find it wonderful that I choose to walk to the station and ride the MRT rather than waiting in line for a cab to go home. It's nowhere near riding a bus, an FX or a jeepney, but this still makes me feel connected to the masses somehow. And if I wasn't wearing my... Continue Reading →


My Passport Ordeal

Finally my new passport is on its way back to the US Embassy to have my 10-year tourist visa stamped on it. That was quite an ordeal. To make the story short, here's what happened: We applied for a tourist visa last May 2010 and got approved. Few days after, I got a call from... Continue Reading →
