I now have a new list of "wanna haves" -- purely items that would make my life a wee bit better to live. Not that I need a lot more than I already do, but like I said, these are "wanna haves". Would be great if some others could 1) point me to where I can get them (in the Philippines) 2) give me one of these or 3) give me ALL of these ;)

Here goes the (short) list:

1) Leather bound NIV Bible Study Guide
2) Relient K's Mmhmm
3) Tree86's Answer to the Question
4) Treo 650
5) A G2000 GC worth at least one blazer ;)

There are other things that are catching my attention right now, and all this (non)sleeping is sometimes already getting to me. Do you know the feeling of digging down deep and tapping already into your "super sayan" reserves? That happens when you're enjoying yourself working on a pet project for more than 24 hours -- then sleeping the whole day after.

Thanks to my officemates (Pabz and Crisitan) for keeping up with the code (and bug) spewing and fixing freak that I am.

Yes, it wrecks your bio clock, but when you do it for the glory of the Lord then it's all worth it. :)

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…

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!
