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…

Southern Living

I love the south. I love that its not too hustle and bustle but highly urbanized too. I like that I don’t have to get my brain dizzy with a lot of people crossing the streets but it’s active enough to have a bit of a social life too. I love that I get to live…

Daily Prompt: Edge of the Frame

We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person. I took this photo three years ago, when my wife and I decided to go on an out-of-town trip to Quezon, a province…

Daily Prompt: Odd Trio Redux

Time for another Odd Trio prompt: write a post about any topic you want, in whatever form or genre, but make sure it features a slice of cake, a pair of flip-flops, and someone old and wise. I miss going out on vacations. I have been out of work since June and though we’ve been…

Quaint and Happy Negros Occidental!

This is late, but I realized I haven’t been able to blog about our one-week vacation in my dear hometown in Negros Occidental. So now that this blog is already kind of of done with its hiatus, I’m going to post some of the best things we enjoyed while we were in the city of…

This is Love!

Boracay is love. Many complain that the loud music, the nonstop partying, the growing number of commercial establishments in the island are swiftly defacing Boracay’s charm, but I disagree. I think Boracay wouldn’t be as popular and as familiar that it is right now without these, for they form part and parcel of the island’s…

May ’12 Outings

So I realize, I only have one entry for the month of May. One. Just one. Wow, was my May that busy?!? I don’t remember it being more busy than the other previous months, but why just one post? Why? The good news though, is that my blog layout had been this for quite some…

Beach – ing at 29.

THE BEACH. I don’t know but for some reason I’ve longed for the beach for like, every single day of my recent life. I practically lived near one 90 % of my existence, and when I was separated from it ( 7 years now), it’s like I breathe life anew whenever I am beside it….

An Escape to the Queen City

February, aside from being THE love month, is also my wife and I’s ESCAPADE month. We started this tradition three years ago with a lavish trip to Baguio. I think it’s been established that the both of us see traveling as more than just something to talk and blog about, but really, IS an actual…
