Batman Begins

This is something a serious Batman fan like myself would need to watch. It might not be the flashy movies with really long (sometimes meaningless) action sequences, or the big films with big stars, but it definitely is a very good idea. See, one of the best superheroes who does not have special superhuman powers deserves a lot more history than aliens flying in tights and a red cape.

Come to think of it, Batman is the only superhero I know who has no superhuman capabilities and certainly relies on intelligence, martial arts, and ever so cool gadgets to get the job done. Although at some points in time, he works with others, it is so much more interesting when he's going it alone.

If you look at the character, you might want to think that he would be a great villain. If he did become a villain, he would be like what Triple H is in the wrestling industry -- very very cool, very very "powerful", and very very much hated. See, if a villain had all the attributes of Batman -- or if Batman were a villain -- it would take a lot more than the justice league to take him down. It's either that, or he could blow gotham up in a matter of hours and leave everyone else lying there to die.

I certainly thank the comic gods for not making Batman a villain -- although I wouldn't mind rooting for a villain, much like how I always root for Triple H in the WWE.

Chill...

To the other Tiple H fans: check this out if you haven't yet.

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…

Futures and Options I: My Introduction to Computing

I've recently been thinking about how my decisions early in life have done me good to put me where I'm at right now. I've certainly lived a very fortunate life -- been blessed with so many good things and been down-right lucky being at the right place at the right time. My 30 year journey to where I am now has been very interesting. I can pretty much say that the experiences I've had up to this point have very much contributed to making me who I am -- and that I regret nothing. Still though I keep thinking about what my life would be like if I hadn't made certain choices I did make throughout the years. There are a few choices I've made that I've stuck to and I keep thinking about wondering "what if I made a different choice instead" -- and the more I think about it, the more I'm happy about the decisions I've made.

Futures and Options II: Exchange Student

Flash back to 1998, I was a junior in high school in the Philippines. I would have been at the equivalent of 9th grade in the US educational system at age 15. At this point in my life I had been given one of the best opportunities to experience a whole new culture and lifestyle. I had a chance to be an exchange student in middle America for one full year. This post is about how passing up this opportunity changed my life more than I would have ever known at the time.

The Rotary Club

Back during those days my parents had been invited to be part of the Rotary Club in the small town we lived in. There were various kinds of people who were in the club -- writers, businessmen, professionals (lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc.). My parents are businessmen who had very little in the way of…
