I just saw a video of Domeng's son graduating from De La Salle University with a Master's Degree in Mathematics. Even if he's from a rival school, I can't help but be proud with the accomplishment of both the person who went up the stage and the two individuals who worked terribly hard to see...

Learnings about Time
Note to self: 1. When someone says 10-ish, that's a range from 10:00 to 10:59. 2. Sometimes, when someone says that they'll be finished by 9:00, it's just a suggested time.
The Correct Running Shoes For Me
In the interest of finding the correct running shoes for me, I went online and took the tests at the Mizuno Precision Fit. The result said that I'm a neutral runner and that I should go for shoes with cushioning. It also gave me some models to choose from. One of them that I liked... Continue Reading →
My Brand New Messenger Bag
I bought the 11" Thule molded EVA laptop sleeve from the Apple Store in Hong Kong and fell in love with it. It fits my Macbook like a glove that I thought, "wouldn't it be great if it has a matching bag to go along with it?" I went online and found this Thule Crossover... Continue Reading →
Turning Thirty Five
I can't believe I'm turning 35 this month. It doesn't seem like I've been living in this world for that long. I think I would need a long ride soon to celebrate life.
My Thoughts on our Final Year
If the Mayans are correct and 2012 is truly our last year on Earth, wouldn't it be great if we would mark the last year of our civilization with peace and harmony? Wouldn't it be awesome that even for just one year, there won't be any hungry mouths to feed anymore? Wouldn't it be wonderful... Continue Reading →
I just watched the 1993 film Swing Kids starring Robert Sean Leonard and Christian Bale among others, and I do believe that it's one of the most beautiful films of that year. It's about a bunch of kids in Hamburg, Germany during the time of the Nazis. It's truly wonderful. Watch it if you can.... Continue Reading →
The wonderful feeling of having a newly-fixed car
I'm so happy that I finally did what I was planning to do with the car. With the 1-month gratuity pay that I got, I was able to replace all four tires, the front bumper and the right fender lamp. I was also able to have her wheels aligned and her scratches removed. Just now,... Continue Reading →
Killing me softly
On a flight back to Manila after a five-day adventure in Beijing. Even though I'm sleepy, I'm having a hard time sleeping as the leg room and everything else in this flight is really cramped. So I just decided to write this entry and post it once I land, or at least get a decent... Continue Reading →
Graham might get laid
It seems like our dear old Graham has a chance to get laid, finally. My friend's dog, Summer, is in heat, and she saw how handsome our boy is. Now we only have to iron out the logistics for the two to meet. I'm excited. Keep your fingers crossed.
Gong Cha Philippines
Our heart leapt out today when we saw a picture of a Gong Cha stand on Facebook and discovered that the owner is Gong Cha Philippines. We immediately asked our friends from Facebook and Twitter where that picture is. We were guessing that it's somewhere in Makati, probably in the Ayala Triangle Gardens. Gong Cha...

The Obsessive-Compulsive Me
I guess I am a bit obsessive-compulsive when it comes to making the house neat and tidy. It's already 1:33 in the morning and I can't stop myself from doing a quick sweep of the floor, changing the sheets, washing the dishes and putting things where they belong. I think tomorrow I'll wash the rest... Continue Reading →
Taking things to the next level
He maybe an assshole, but I have to admit that he forced us to take our game to the next level. His concern and our concern, at the end of the day, is one -- be able to give the customer the best experience possible. We may have different ideas on how to achieve this,... Continue Reading →
I'm currently having lunch here at Burger King SM City Marikina. I went to two NBI kiosks already to have my NBI clearance renewed but the lines were just too fucking long. The first one was in SM Megamall. The kiosk was stationed at the basement level but the line goes all the way up... Continue Reading →
Thoughts about the end of the world
I woke up thinking about the end of the world. Would God end His masterpiece by destroying it, like an artist throwing a tantrum, or, like an opera, would He save the most beautiful things for the finale and show it in its full glory?
