This is where Dad used to play during his pro pelotari days. An elegant Art Deco structure that has been part of Manila's history for as long as I can remember. Its Sky Room was also once the playground of the elite back in the City's glory days.

Today I turn 36, and I am writing this down on a markdown editor on my iPhone while lying on my side, bored and tethered to a hospital bed a few inches short for my height, where I've been stuck since yesterday after being diagnosed with dengue fever. I will probably post this late since…

This is Rubik, our new furry bundle of fleas and joy. He's so far doing okay, loves to snuggle up to whoever is sleeping and is somewhat more clingy than our previous cat. Our first cat, Peabo died last August which broke the kids' hearts and so I just had to get a new one.…

Uber is gone for now and I want to write something about the entire fiasco as it affects me and my family a great deal. But I will not write it without first waiting for my anger to subside. I want to fair; to Uber, to the LTFRB and to Taxi drivers and yes, even…
We drafted the framework for an Open Government Licensing Policy into our draft EO on the National Government Digital Service (Committee) back in the previous administration. Too bad it never got signed. But here is the jist of what an Open License is all about and why it is important. https://blog.okfn.org/2017/06/08/the-state-of-open-licensing-in-2017/

"Got a lot on my mind/plate", seemed to me as the usual excuse I give myself on why I just don't go ahead and start writing again on this platform. Too much noise, too many distractions, real-life, actual work, etc... and the list goes on and on. These things I keep using as excuses to…

Open up my head and let me out... argh! I can't seem to shake this DMB tune off my head. I went silent from April of 2020 up to now. With the exception of a few posts on my IG and personal socmed accounts, I pretty much erased my presence digitally. At some point I…

Sometime between December of 2021 and January of 2022 or roughly two years since the pandemic hit, I found myself outside shooting on the streets again.
