life and love come hand in hand...

or so at least i think it does. i think love is life - because without one, there is no other. without life, there will be or can be no love, and without love, there could not or would not be life.

its kind of like a mobious strip, in a sense that you start with one, and come to another end, but then you'll be returning to the starting point. although there are many explanations to what love is and what life is, basicallu we're better off not arguing any one of these explanations - because basically, who really knows? is there a course on the study og life and/or love, and there is, how many Ph.D.'s are there now?

unarguably, both these things are very important to both of them, and to all of us. people cannot survive without love (for the self, for others, or for something at least) and there wouldn;t be people without life...

but why am i getting worked up about it? because primarily of the way people have sometimes taken both or at least one of those two for granted. a lot of people now delve into themselves and become an all-knowing and self-sufficing gook that doesnt really care about other people or anything happening around him/her. if only everyone will take time and live their lives in love - loving themselves, and others - maybe there wouldnt be any problems in the world. but then, its just a dream...

so what do i wanna say? basically, i want to say that i love life, and i live my life loving myself and my true love - elvine. to those who know me, you know who i am talking about. to those who dont, well you have a lot to learn about me. =)

anyway, i'd liek to take this opportunity to share my love of life, and my life of love with those who bother to read... my suggestion is: if you havent been living a life of love, or havent been loving life lately, try it - it might njust turn your life around, like how it did to me.

have a nice one! =)

Writing Again

It's 2019 and I just realised that I've not written on this blog for a long while. I feel a little bad about this so I'm picking it back up again. More importantly, I've limited my social media to just Twitter (I've deleted all my Facebook-related accounts) and will be writing more on the blog instead of engaging in other social media sites. If you want to reach me directly, you can also reach me through my keybase.io account for encrypted communication. If you have my phone number, you can also contact me through Signal. Quite a number of things have happened in the past few years and here's a quick update on things that I can share:

I've been working on XRay, a function call tracing system now part of the LLVM project. This took a good two and some years of my time at Google.Most recently I've moved to the Chrome Operations Team still here in Google Sydney. I can't give specifics yet of what I'll be working on, so stay tuned.There've been c…

A Passion Project

I was so moved today by the prospect of a passion project that I took some time on a Friday night to get it done. Let me present the #RedJeans project over at redjeans.org. I've found myself wanting to work on a project that came purely from the heart and one that was very dear to me, something that is personal, and connects with a larger community of people in the world.
The idea for redjeans.org came to me as a hint when I was writing up my reflection for 2018. I realised that I didn't spend quite as much time identifying with and working with a community. I did a bit of soul-searching and found that one of the activities I really enjoyed and cherished in years past is donating blood -- and I keep wondering why not more people do it. It was an idle thought but then a conversation with someone where I described why I wrote down "donate blood more often" in 2019 became an idea where instead of just me doing it, how about if I get my friends to do it too?

I left it a…

From FOMO to JOMO

Until very recently I believed that I needed to be on top of the latest news and happenings not only in my field (computer science and software engineering) but also in as many things as I can be on top of. This meant subscribing to all sorts of magazines, newsletters, YouTube channels, Twitch streamers, watching TV and live sport events, etc. — I was on top of a lot of the latest happenings, trends, news, interesting developments. I was having fun and I felt busy. What I did not feel was particularly effective nor productive. I felt like I was consuming so much information with the thought that it might be useful someday. When I was younger this wouldn’t have been an issue but I realised that ever since I’ve started taking stock of what I’ve been spending my time on, that a lot of it I’ve been spending just staying on top of things that I really didn’t need to be on top of. This article is about some of the realisations I’ve made in the course of exploring this issue of “FOMO” or th…
