Last December, my wife and I along with my in-laws went to Tagaytay, Philippines to have our anniversary lunch at Sonya’s Garden. Tagaytay is a 2-hour drive south from Manila, the Philippines’ capital. It’s a windy place similar to Baguio (the summer capital of the Philippines) with its scenic hills and slopes. In Tagaytay, there’s… Continue reading Tagaytay, Philippines – Sonya's Garden Anniversary Lunch
First day of the year 2009. I was on a plane going back from my home town in the Philippines to my work in Malaysia. It was an interesting flight for me for two reasons: 1) It’s New Year! and 2) I didn’t need to go to work the next morning, which was a Friday. … Continue reading Goals for the year 2009
Happy New Year to all! It’s been a long time since I wrote on this blog. Almost a year has passed. So many things have happened. New year. New perspective. New beginning.

They had pretty much the same performance as their… Continue reading American Idol: will it be David vs David?

The good thing about the Windows Live Writer is that it looks like a standard Microsoft Word… Continue reading Windows Live Writer

He has a very high capacity for absorbing information and got himself recruited by the CIA and NSA unknowingly. He works at “Buy More”,… Continue reading Chuck and the Buy More guys
I love going to the beach. The clear water, the white sand beach and the twinking stars at night make the beach so peaceful. One of the best beaches I’ve been to is Boracay in the Philippines. The above picture of Boracay beach was taken last December. Notice how clear the water is? It’s very beautiful. I… Continue reading Boracay – the Philippines' most popular beach
I’ve just watched American Idol. As usual, David Archuleta and David Cook both put on very strong performances tonight. One David is a hardcore rock artist. The other one is a balladeer. I hope they get to the final showdown. It’d be one hell of a show. It’s a bit of a challenge to compare… Continue reading American Idol – comparing apples to oranges
