Another Day in the Office

I am starting my day slowly, sipping my hot coffee, checking email… nothing new. I hate surprises. I was caught off-guard with our client’s requirements that I failed to see! Hairs on the back of my forehead started to rise. I knew it, something’s wrong. My once slow start accelerated to higher gear. Next thing … Continue reading

Only Introvert Can Understand

I prefer isolation. I wake up each day wanting more minute, not because I beg for more sleep, but because I don’t want to face the world. I’m not ready yet.  All I want after a dayjob is to sit in silence, in the dark… alone. But I wasn’t built for that. I can lead … Continue reading

Dad’s Journey

Every journey is never easy. It takes more than a desire to move forward. Drive, passion, dedication, name it. Bottom line is, you’ve got to have that to separate yourself from merely an enthusiast.  My journey as dad started one year after quitting my day job. Being an expat, I have to give up my … Continue reading

Offering our Hearts

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Psalm 139:23 The above passage portrays our desire to surrender fully in the Lord. We can only arrive on this place when we are saturated with His presence in the spirit of worship. I have to admit, I’m not always receptive to … Continue reading

Binabaybay ko ang maliit na pinitak, Paglagpas ng sementeryo, aking tinatahak, Makipot, nakakakilabot, Sa takipsilim Kadilima’y pumapalibot. Umaambon pa kasi Malamig na hangi’y dumadampi. Papalapit na ako sa malaking puno ng balite May maligno daw, dapat magpasintabi May nagpapakita pang white lady Ba’t naman kasi iniwan ako ni ate. Nag-umpisang tumayo ang balahibo ko sa … Continue reading

Opera VPN: Because Privacy Matters

I don’t know about you, but I take my privacy seriously. Living in the Middle East subjected my online access into censorship. I don’t mind the government blocking various websites, makes sense to me. My paranoia is, the government must have its way of reviewing my weblog. It’s like in Will Smith’s “Enemy of the … Continue reading

A grateful father

  As me and my wife are conversing with my flight bound to abu dhabi, my son did not pay attention to me. He’s busy playing with his toy jollibee. Before retiring to bed, his mom is training him to pray. My safety here abroad is one on his prayer list. Little did we know, … Continue reading

A good day to visit

Beneath a cloudy horizon spreads a gulf mena. Once was a scorched desert turned to be a melting pot of oil so rich that it paved way for this region’s development. Dubai, here i come – again. It’s not so (annoyingly) hot on this season. With 23°c, feels like a tropical country i came from: … Continue reading
