“Being busy is better than being bored. Bored left a long time ago. Busy is always around for me.” – Tabitha Robin 1/7 It has been a loooong time! I honestly don’t know what to write right now. Hopefully I can get into reviewing once again! Anyways, just came back from volunteering at a museum, which […]

“Problem with an old friend who is too busy: he always perceives you as if never changed.” – Toba Beta 16/3 I have all these books I’d love to start reading, but I have had no time to dive into them. There’s this novel that I bought months ago and it is still packaged in a […]

“Philosophy is really nostalgia, the desire to be at home.” – Novalis 8/3 Is it me, or there’s so many talks now about plastic surgery? To be honest I have thought about it, but watching and reading the recovery period even though the results are great, always puts me off. Plus the large amount of money […]

“Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.” – Phyllis Diller 1/3 March! Sydney is getting cooler and gloomy looking, which brings the unwelcome flu and cold season. I think I had my dose just two days ago and passed it onto E. He now is sniffling his way through the day, he and I […]

“The monstrosity of this, reaching Smiley through a thickening wall of spiritual exhaustion, left him momentarily speechless.” – John Le Carre 14/2 Once again I didn’t get a bouquet of roses. That’s all I really want on this day. Every 14/2. 15/1 Where has the week gone? Trying so hard to stay awake. 16/1 Instead of brunch, going […]

“Denial is a useful defense mechanism until it’s not.” – Rosalind Kaplan 9/2 The week has flown and I completed the first week of work for one of my work places. There is still much to learn with the system there and I wish I can install my own system. But if I do it will […]

“We should respect those able to choose love after enduring a lifetime of hate. It is the least we could do.” – Wayne Gerard Trotman 29/1 Landed in Sydney yesterday, and it still feels like I am still settling in. I have unpacked but everything seems new again, which is great. It is an immense juxtaposition […]

“Sometimes it pays not to be interested in what happened but in what did not happen.” – Ambeth O. Ocampo 16/1 Did the Intramuros Walking Tour by Carlos Celdran which was another insightful day, learning about Filipino history… the end of the day on the other hand turned out shit, with a moody human. 19/1 Decided to check […]

“Buy what you don’t have yet, or what you really want, which can be mixed with what you already own. Buy only because something excites you, not just for the simple act of shopping.” – Karl Lagerfeld 7/1 Saying hello from the Apulit Island Resort! Loving the vibe here, where I will spending the remaining 4 […]

“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” – Brad Paisley 24/12 Was my last work day yesterday for the year! Super excited for the holidays and for the trip in 12 days. I haven’t flown out to the Philippines since 2009. What has happened these past few weeks… […]
