too long a break.

it has been so long since i last wrote to this blog, and sometimes im beggining to forget why i even have a blog.

basically, i want an outlet of thoughts and emotions, as well as an activity in which i can reflect upon what has been happening to my life lately. well now that im back on track, and am very much in the mood for reflection, im getting back on the horse which has taken me to a place i really like -- deep inside of me.

yes, there have been a lot of events in my life, as well long stretches of uneventful moments. nowadays, moments seem to come unnoticed and even come like the wind that passes me by. maybe its because im pretty much content and somewhat accomplished in my life, that things seem to just pass by unnoticed.

however, it may be because ive found peace in myself, and now that i am a godfather to three very young and very lovable kids -- diche's pong, ate lev's jose, and dianne's tsianina -- my life seems to be more than just my struggles in the present, but their life and future. i take my being a godfather seriously, and because i do, i try to be the best godfather i can be. although i would love to be there and act as their father or just like a father, i can only do so much right now.

right now, ive been focusing on planning my life and realizing the goals i can accomplish right away. i have been contemplating on a lot of things that i want to have by the time i want to have it comes. but more than that, i have also been realizing ways in which how i can obtain these things while im at it - and i keep this in mind day by day.

and as i end the days, i always make an effort to thank God for the wonderful life i have, and the people around me who have been special in their own way to me. and everyday, i wish other people do too - because the world would be a whole lot better place to live in.

until next time! =)

by the way -- i love you elvine!!! ;-)

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…

Futures and Options III: Economics, Journalism, or Computer Science

I realise it's been a year since my previous post on this blog, and I've found myself having very little time to do another "brain dump" on the subject of my early choices in life. With that in mind (and as I'll be traveling again soon) I get to think a little more and reflect on a few of the things that have happened.

Much like the previous post, this one's set in high school -- where I was part of the swimming team, in a band, had been programming with Turbo Pascal, Java, and then C++ later on, and was about to make a choice that would literally change the course of my life. This one is about the choices I made, and the ones that were made for me.

Note: This is part 3 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts, as well as for your reading through this series!
