CHILDREN, SAY 741,176,323.20 PESOS!

MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH JAPANESE

Before my wife raises her eyebrow, I’m talking about food.   Japanese food, baby. When I was in Tokyo last summer, I had an affair with one of my favorite soups.  I savored it then more frequently than I can imagine.  The most authentic and the best Sukiyaki set that I’ve ever tasted was from a…

AGONY OF AN OFW DADDY

I never felt so helpless in my 34 years of existence until the past 48 hours. While my 6-year-old son was having episodes of vomiting after meals, loose bowel movements on top of intermittent fever ranging from 38’C to 40’C + and was complaining that his head hurts, I was only on skype to monitor…

DAYS IN THE CLOUDS

Last month, we temporarily left our work desks, classrooms and conference rooms as we attended to our medical university-college’s annual Strategic Meeting… The venue was impressive; we spent 3D2N at The Regency, Jerai Hill Resort on top of the hills of Gunung Jerai in Penang.
