In my family's itinerary, we were supposed to go to Chatswood for shopping today. But like in many instances in the past, last minute changes happened again which led me to doing my laundry instead. I was in the middle of my sulking, rather my soaking when my cousin invited me to try bushwalking. I … Continue reading Exploring Berowra Heights
It's been almost a week since I came to Sydney. My plan was to blog my daily activities. Unfortunately, I myself could not keep up to the many things I have been doing and the easiest way to do it is to take photos and post away. For long vacations like this, I make it … Continue reading New South Wales Chronicles
Admittedly, Australia is at the bottom of my holiday destinations list. I could not figure out a distinct charm that would draw me to it. A family occassion that could not be avoided led me here. I was not really thrilled about the gruelling 8-hour flight so I picked a night schedule so I could … Continue reading New South Wales Chronicles

The most dreaded Meet the Parents came first even before we were formally introduced. It was in a party, remember? We … Continue reading An Open Letter to my “What If” Guy
For morning run and sunrise For good coffee To catch-up on my readings
As we all usher in the new year, I find it appropriate to look back and see how the last 365 days have molded and changed me. Personally, I believe 2015 is a good year. Sure, it has its fair share of bumps but in hindsight, these do not outweigh the learnings I would be … Continue reading What 2015 Taught Me..
I have read only a handful of non-fiction books. Some of them are biographies, some are books on finance and all other sort of do-it-yourself stuff. I enjoyed most of them, particularly the biographies so when I chanced upon The Boys in the Boat I had an immediate interest to it. This talks about nine … Continue reading The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown
