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

Lessons from An Escape Room

I'll go straight to the point: the heaviest take away that I had from this experience is that --- any activity that involves signing a waiver means that you are about to partake in a high-risk activity. I was late to realize that Escape Room games are included in that category. Based on a template… Continue reading Lessons from An Escape Room

Solo In Tokyo (Day 4): Wandering Around Akihabara

This might be one of the most spontaneous day I had in Tokyo. From the way I began my day to the places I got to visit to, I just went with the flow and followed where my instincts led me to go. "Woke up early" I was soooo exhausted the previous night that I… Continue reading Solo In Tokyo (Day 4): Wandering Around Akihabara

Black Mirror Season 5: A Review

It's that time for all Black Mirror fans to rejoice again -- a new season has been released over at Netflix for this politically acclaimed technology-will-destroy-humanity-themed anthology series. As a super fan of their material, I was beyond thrilled for this and I immediately jumped onto the Black Mirror train as soon as the episodes… Continue reading Black Mirror Season 5: A Review

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): 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: An Introduction

I just landed yesterday from a nine-day soul searching trip in Tokyo, Japan. I have booked and planned for this trip since June of the previous year and honestly the planning stage was a bit stressful for me. This was my first ever solo trip in a city that I will be visiting for the… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo: An Introduction
