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

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!


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…

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…
