subic

I remember watching a couple of episodes of a TV show (local) which featured Subic Bay and the sex lives of the people who either stayed there or were just passing by. It's certainly something to consider -- a very nice place like subic, the beautiful people who go there, and the very easy atmosphere surrounding the place.

I spent the weekend at Subic bay on an EB I went to -- an EB with a real activity in mind. It was an Amazing Race style tour around the base without having to spend money to get from one place to another using just your charms and wits. It was a definite blast, especially since my partner and I won the race -- of course, it has its fair share of drama and end-game excitement boiling down to the recital of the english alphabet reversed.

So there I was in subic bay, surrounded by the scenery, the beautiful ladies, and the booze. First time in my life that I had a real body shot. Others before that didn't count. Wasn't all that spectacular, but it was a real body shot.

What happens when you have a handful of people who just get to discuss things online with each other with -- whom you barely know -- and booze all around? Well, what happens is certainly something you can call fun. That's something you can enjoy for a very long time -- getting to know each other, getting to know yourself through other people, and knowing a lot more about the world with them.

A definition of an EB (eye ball) has changed -- now when I say EB, I don't just think of meeting someone and saying "hi", or "hello", but it's saying "hi" and "hello" with fun and happiness in your heart. I've been to other EB's before, but none was as fun as what I had been on a couple of days ago. Definitely one for keeps.

CHill...

(Hi kay sweet, kay partner barenaked, and others also in the race -- hope to see you all again soon) :D

Appreciating Rizal...

Nope, this is not an academic post. More of a reflective and wrote-because-i-was-enlightened type post. Anyway, I just passed a paper on Rizal's notion of a nation according to Quibuyen (a local writer who devoted a book -- A Nation Aborted -- on his treatise on Rizal). Chapter 6 was an interesting read, and a definite eye opener. Rizal all of a sudden became interesting, especially to someone like me who could care less. It seems that most of what Rizal aims for and wrote about is still evident in today's Philippines as I see it. I wonder why I didn't get to appreciate Rizal and his work when I was still in high school -- might be the fault of the high school and the curriculum, or might be because I was still considerably immature then. I wasn't able to understand most of Rizal's writings though even if I got to reading them basically because they translated from Spanish to Filipino/Tagalog. I don't have problems with Tagalog, until you put it in writing. I

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

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!
