• LIFE,  MY JOURNAL

    A game-changing, record-breaking, life-stretching year that is 2019

    Before coming up with the title, I had lots of questions in mind. Aside from the typical “how did my last year go?” which I typically ask every end of the year, some other thoughts like “should I still write a year end essay?” and many others try to bother my already preoccupied mind. People typically publish their year – ending blogs at around the last days of December. I don’t quite understand why I publish mine at around January even during last year when I first started blogging again thru this site. Conventionally too late but I still ended up posting anyway. Just like my 2018 year ending blog…

    (My very late blog post about the) HANGOVERS of 2018

    Author’s Note: I was able to finish writing this post just February of this year. But due to unavoidable circumstances, let alone the loads of responsibilities outside of the internet, I couldn’t publish this. Many things happened in my life, still both good and bad. Although I’m thinking about just writing another year-ending post, I guess I can’t just let this writing slide down the drain. I did exerted my energy on this to be written, handwritten from my journal up to being typewritten here. Besides, this could somewhat be related to what I’m planning to write today as my official 2019 annual essay. So, I hope you enjoy reading!   …

    BATAAN, Philippines: Traveled for HEALING and FINDING MYSELF

    “I had lots of work to do, had a not-so-open-minded boss, had no money, just can’t simply leave for a week untraced”; “I’m busy” and many other excuses resonating on my mind are making me hesitate to push through with going to this trip. Although I badly wanted to go, there’s a huge need for me to holistically prepare despite my wife’s constant persistence. Last year, I even had the opportunity to have the same experience for an extremely discounted price (for reasons I really don’t know) but I still refused out of not being really prepared enough. Again, imagine the horror of telling my boss that I’ll be gone…

    TRANSITIONS

    Well, it’s been ages since the last time I wrote something personal. So I thought to myself “why not?” I could stick into writing again something related to my 1-year old daughter whom is currently living her life somewhere far away from us. Maybe on the Marvel Cinematic Universe because at the post-credit scene from the movie Infinity War, she was called by Agent Nick Fury to face the mighty Thanos. She’s Captain Marvel after all (LOL!). Although I already wrote a little draft on a post about her, I’m not gonna write something about our grief of losing her in this post… again. I’m also gonna set aside the…

    The AEROLINE experience: a 6-hour bus ride from KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA to SINGAPORE

    My very first international trip was way back 2012 going to Singapore with my family. I was still a student that time and I think this is what triggered me to say “yes” to going on adventures. I even thought of wanting to live here but didn’t materialized. Fast forward to 2017, I was able to go back to this amazing place with my beautiful wife and even repeated it recently past March of 2018. Contrary to my 2012 trip in which we arrived and departed at Changi Airport, my wife and I arrived in this country through a different approach… twice.   IS IT POSSIBLE? I remember a family friend based…
