Manila Tonight

I've recently been getting busy getting hooked to one of the hippest online community for Filipinos living in and around (even outside of) Manila. And boy have the people at MTC got a night life! I thought the days of just hanging out getting drunk in UPLB in a regular fashion just for the hang of it is over, but I was surprised that people actually get to do that on a regular basis happily!

Now if that doesn't sound like a place I'd want to be in, or a group I'd want to be affiliated with, then I don't know. I am after all a member of the UPLB Computer Science Society, who among all people (geeks) have a reputation for very very prolonged drinking sessions. Maybe not all people in COSS are geeks, but boy are we a bashful group. The gimmicks aren't the finest things in life -- no fancy wines/dinners, no need to dress up, and no pretensions just sit around drink to your hearts' and pockets' delight fun.

I suggest every warm blooded manilenyo and provinciano give this online forum a try and be surprised at how fun the manila night life can be without having to worry (too much) about the wacko's out in the streets. Imagine, going on an EB where you'd be welcomed as you are and having fun to your hearts' (and pockets') content(s). And no pretensions -- all the people that go there are players, so talk about sex or no talk about sex is all in the same breath of conversation.

You might even get lucky at times (not that I have already) but that's beside the point. And mind you, you don't even have to be "young" to enjoy the online community. (right DMF? ;) ).

Try MTC now and discover what you've been missing all this time. :D

CHill...

PS. Thanks to the UC people -- you guys and gals definitely rock! DMF, tamahome, and awo -- if you're reading this, mas masaya kung nasa ilalim ng puno. LOL

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.

Note: This is Part 1 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. If you're intere…

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!
