IT’S LOVE MONTH AGAIN!

For hopeless romantic people like, ehem, I am, Valentine’s Day on the 14th of February is such an occasion not to be missed. Last year, I remember I took my wife, Tina and our kid, Gabby to a movie, dined in one of our favorites, and I never failed to give her a bunch of 3 roses of course…

AMANDA

“It is never too late to begin. Remember that you always wanted to play the piano, paint, write poetry, start a journal, read that challenging book, begin stargazing, learn a little Spanish, take up yoga or qigong, build something special. There will never be a better day to begin than today. Just do it.” –Jonathan…

SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO

Last year, I celebrated Chinese New Year here… I strolled this charming street of Manila called  Binondo with a bunch of fellow bloggers; was my first time to appreciate dancing lions and dragons with people of common interest. This year, I am excited to witness how Penang people observe such occasion. And who would not…

LOOKING AT MY SON’S PHOTO

6 months of homesickness is well worth this short sigh of contentment… If only I can pull the days to March to be with them again here in Penang, I’ll do it in a heart beat.

AS CHEESY AS IT GETS

Call me the biggest cheese ball on the planet, but it’s one of my favorite movies. Not because of anything but the lines on this film cut through me. And times like this that I am alone in my room and when Skype isn’t enough to melt my homesickness away, surfing the web for quotes…

THIS ONE’S WONDERFUL!

I never thought blogging can give me so much pleasure. From gaining loyal virtual friends (of whom I met a few already) to receiving comments and opinions on my posts that they generously share, to a few perks of being invited to events, receiving gift certificates and freebies, to earning a few amount from exchange links and whatnot.…

THEIR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

I considered myself lucky for working in Penang where diversity of 3 races – Malaysian, Chinese and Indian usually comes with festivities and holidays. Yes, January 20th, Thursday was declared a holiday here for Hindu’s Thaipusam celebration. (Google translate : Ang daming paid holidays!) My fellow Pinoys here and I heard from our Indian colleagues that thousands usually troop at Hindu…

SCHOOL IS COOL

I was smiling from ear to ear when I saw these last Saturday… Too cute for words? As a father to a preschooler, I cannot help but imagine how those innocent little hands molded these amazing creation. Impressive, isn’t it? I and my 2 senior colleagues found these stuffs in one corner of the school we visited last weekend. We…

10 THINGS I HAVE NOT DONE BEFORE

One of my friends of 18 years and counting, and the same person who introduced me to the world of blogging, Rob of Sensory Replays (to quote his verb-) urged his fellow bloggers to do a post similar with his.  He even required everyone who will follow suit to name the entry “10 things I have not done…

MY USUAL WEEKEND

I chanced upon this quaint Chinese facade in georgeous tone of green when I was walking in one of the streets of Georgetown, Penang last weekend.  I instantly fell in love with it. Walking around Penang Island is a good way to while away hours particularly on a lazy weekend. The sights on the streets and the street scenes itself are not that difficult to appreciate in…
