Preparation...

I am currently enjoying my work, and it seems that my boss is also enjoying working with me, or at least watching me work. That's the impression that I get, and I've already been with meetings on the upcoming projects we have (which I cannot talk about). However, I'm going to have to brace myself for an ~8 hour drive from here in Makati to Iriga in Bicol. That's quite a long ride, and I'm not sure what to do aside from sleep, watch the windows in the middle of the night, and listen to radio.

Anyway, I should be enjoying the sights, and the setup. I get to travel, and work, and enjoy both at the same time. I just hope baby would understand, and not worry too much. And I hope my parents understand, since well, it doesn't seem to me that I would get the opportunity to go home in 2 consecutive weekends because of work.

I'm taking this seriously, and I hope the company takes me seriously too. It looks so in the outset, but I have yet to see how far I could go and bring this company with me, or how far will this company go and bring me. I have yet to find out...

Chill...

  2. From Makati to Iriga? It must more than an 8-hour trip. Went there a few weeks ago. Damned long trip, I say.

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!


Rant: Despair and Hopelessness

This weekend I had the chance to do a Google+ hangout with my father in the Philippines. He and I don't talk often but we do have a very good relationship. My dad is cool like that. In this hangout we talked about a few things happening in the Philippines and I've gotten the feeling that my homeland is getting ever deeper into economic disrepair, and that the politics to which I've come to be hopeless on is beyond repair. I've wanted to get something off my chest that's been bothering me for a while now, so if you would indulge me please read on.

Background

I grew up in a part of the Philippines where the land is fertile, there are thriving industries, and there's a certain sense of abundance and stability. This part of the Philippines has good schools, good employment opportunities (mostly industrial and service industries), good investment opportunities (real-estate and agricultural), and good potential for growth. This was true when I was young and this is tr…

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…
