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

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…

A Passion Project

I was so moved today by the prospect of a passion project that I took some time on a Friday night to get it done. Let me present the #RedJeans project over at redjeans.org. I've found myself wanting to work on a project that came purely from the heart and one that was very dear to me, something that is personal, and connects with a larger community of people in the world.
The idea for redjeans.org came to me as a hint when I was writing up my reflection for 2018. I realised that I didn't spend quite as much time identifying with and working with a community. I did a bit of soul-searching and found that one of the activities I really enjoyed and cherished in years past is donating blood -- and I keep wondering why not more people do it. It was an idle thought but then a conversation with someone where I described why I wrote down "donate blood more often" in 2019 became an idea where instead of just me doing it, how about if I get my friends to do it too?

I left it a…

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 p…
