Q3 2019 Goals Evaluation

I think this is one of those quarters where I was so distracted I didn't have time and effort to focus on the blog and on my goals. But I did what I could (best effort!). I even had a week where I didn't have time to even input my evaluation (my mind and body… Continue reading Q3 2019 Goals Evaluation

CA Trip 2019 (#1): Beyond Work

So, I just got back from a one-week business trip from California. I got the opportunity to go visit the company's headquarters in Redwood City which was really really cool. I got to meet the people I usually work with virtually. It is always nice to have a face behind the name and the voice.… Continue reading CA Trip 2019 (#1): Beyond Work

Just like that, we are already half-way of 2019! We are now entering the third quarter! Before I set out my new goals for the new quarter (I am very excited on this because I have a new format!), here's an evaluation on how I have done on the goals that I have set for… Continue reading Q2 2019 Goals Evaluation

Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Exploring More of Shibuya

After my visit to the Meiji shrine, my next activity was to grab a quick lunch before going to my next location. Well I already knew where I had to go. My boss, who has been to Japan several times, recommended this takoyaki place named Gindaco Takoyaki. Thanks to Google Maps (as usual!), I saw… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Exploring More of Shibuya

Book Reads: The Shack (William P. Young)

I first heard of "The Shack" during my vacation at the province during Holy Week this year. One of my cousins was recommending we watch this movie to be aired on local TV. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to join them. Fast forward to a few weeks and I was back at work, I randomly mentioned… Continue reading Book Reads: The Shack (William P. Young)

Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Meiji Shrine

As the days of this dream sequence (a phrase I have fondly used to refer to this trip) are passing by, I was learning more and more about myself. This is the first time I have been alone for days in a different country, and I am experiencing lots of new things, and thus learning… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Meiji Shrine

Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): The Unexpected Encounter

This happened in my return to Sumida Park. After my quick stop at the Ushijima Shrine, I began walking back to Sumida park grounds. As I was passing by the park with the pond (and with all the locals doing hanami), this memorable event started to take place. A young woman, around my age, who… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): The Unexpected Encounter

Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): Return to Sumida Park + Encounters + Reflections

The stretch of the Sumida Park that I already walked through is apparently just a glimpse of the whole park itself. On the other side is another stretch of cherry blossoms parallel to the Sumida river. I noticed that the boat that cruises along the river is more visible here compared to the other side,… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): Return to Sumida Park + Encounters + Reflections

Clow Cards: A Reading

During my Tokyo trip, I purchased a Clow Card set based on the anime Cardcaptor Sakura. I was obsessed with this anime when I was in elementary. The anime series had a comeback last year, and I am glad to say that I am still into it. ๐Ÿ™‚ It has always been my childhood dream… Continue reading Clow Cards: A Reading

Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): Sensoji Temple

For this trip, I brought with me my iPad (the one that I luckily won during one media event) and bluetooth keyboard. I have just recently discovered working and writing on the blog via this setup and I thought it was perfectly timed for this trip. I realized that really, writing is my method of… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): Sensoji Temple
