They say that you have a lot of time when you’re 20, that’s okay. But now that I’m half way done with the ‘glorious 20s,’ I say that no matter how much you try to get things right when given a chance to do or have it, sometimes, you just need a few more tries to get it… just right. And you got to do … Continue reading 30 Things Before 30
Photo taken by Tomomi Endo (April 2012)Thanks for your never-ending support sensei! I haven’t experienced “four seasons” (since The Philippines has only rainy and sunny days) and lately, since I’ve been surrounded by a lot of Japanese friends, co-workers and even Taku, I’ve seen the appreciation of the Japanese in the change of seasons that I find very admirable.

That was my one and … Continue reading I think I know how to break my ice.
When I woke up this morning, I realized that I have a new goal: to be one of the richest person in the world. I came to realize that goal because when I looked at my wallet before going to work, I only have 66 pesos. I was surprised and thought of the things I’ve done yesterday.

Well, I don’t want to encourage people to decide prioritizing short-term goals but I think it’s best than not having goals. right Arvee? Shao Shao.
