Bridges and Dreams

I want to say Brooklyn has always been a dream. It was a 28 deg F late afternoon. The conference has ended and we decided, since we were already around the vicinity,  to might as well experience the famous bridge that connected Manhattan to Brooklyn. It was mesmerizing. The cold was unbearable, but it didn’t…

My 10-year Love Story With MR

I have been in the market research industry for more than 10 years now. Wow 10 years!  Time flew by really fast! I haven’t even realized it’s already been a decade! As a bit of a background, I finished college with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering. Took the boards twice, failed twice –  all…

The US in 4 Seasons…or something like that. 

They all said spring should have sprung the moment we landed on JFK airport’s tarmac. Nope. As I recounted the events in my previous blog, our trip was at the same time when the biggest snowstorm this year, so far, hit the Northeast US. So nope. No budding of flowers, no showing of green, red,…

The Small Town Boy in the Big City Part I

I think I’ve already mentioned in this blog several times that I  haven’t traveled outside of the Philippines. I have had quite a number of travel experiences, but only locally – visiting the beautiful beaches of my home country. Nothing internationally. Well, surprise readers. Not anymore. 😉 March of this year, I was given the…

9 Months

It’s been almost a year and up to now, I think I’m still in denial. I don’t want to discuss too much about you, how our lives were when we had you, Ccino. I guess I’m just in a state where I know you’re not around anymore, but I don’t want to acknowledge it. That perhaps…

The Second Coming

My wife carries pregnancy beautifully – I just want to put it out there. Well, to be fair, her second was not as smooth (I mean that figuratively and aesthetically haha!) as her first, but she wasn’t that awful-looking. To document that, and also because pregnancy is both an exciting and an expensive (putting a stress…

Fatherhood V.2

  So I became a father, again. My wife gave birth to Elias Joaquin Adosto last November 2, 2015. He’s a big baby! And I will forever praise Jesus for wife’s normal delivery of him, despite her C-section history with our eldest. He is planned. We always wanted to have another child – five years…

I am so back!

Hey friends! 🙂 It’s been awhile. Quite a long while. Alot has changed from the last time I wrote in here and I’ll try my best to chronicle my life again in this blog. Change. How constant this word is. I  think it has been about nearly two years since I’ve stopped blogging. Two years…

A Sad Look Back

Looking Back, 2014 was not a very good Year for Us. Not-so-good things happened that may have made me Question things. Though I feel like I have fostered better Relationships to my Family, extended family, to God and even to myself, I felt I ran out of luck and had to start anew on so…

Jews, Christians and Mr. Altman

A joke was raised by one of my market research respondents after he called to inquire about when he will be receiving his participation honorarium. Mr. Altman was a fairly jolly fellow. He recently joined one of our studies and was actually praised for speaking his mind spontaneously and for being open to talking about almost any…

Blessed.

Message from church hit home today. I realize I often complain about how unfortunate I can be. How I would have to work for every penny I have, strive for every little success I achieve. You see, I haven’t been someone who’s too lucky in raffle draws. I’ve participated in countless, but I am yet…
