Ark

Yesterday, dad and I went to service together at Victory Christian Fellowship in Fort Bonifacio and the pastor (I forgot his name) talked about Noah and the Ark which Noah was instructed to build. It said a lot about Noah, in his obedience to God whom he had faith in.

I remember a time in my life where I was pretty much asked by the Lord to obey -- and when I did, I found out how the blessings abound. I used to listen to God by reading the word intently back then, but now I fell out of that habit. I want to change and get back into the groove and again walk with Him.

I should get my schedules straightened out, spend my days in pursuit of His will and not mine, and to listen intently and obey what he asks me to do. I've missed listening to Him (you might be asking how I listen, and the answer is by reading his Word -- the Bible -- as a devotional, and it just makes sense as if He was speaking to me and telling me what to do). I miss the comfort in knowing that what I do is all for His glory, and that it's for Him and not me. I miss the feeling of being among His disciples and follwers and the fellowship.

I've been taking small steps towards getting back into the pace of walking with Him, and I need to listen again and get ready to take another leap of faith when He asks me to. I've done it before, and He hasn't failed me. Now, I need to trust Him again, and start walking with Him again.

Chill...

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…

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…
