Achieving the Impossible

Earlier, I was with my boy and his nanny at the amusement park when we came across this machine where you drop a coin to operate a catcher to win one of the stuff toys inside. There was this lady, in her mid-40's who was having the time of her life playing. After the 3rd try, she succeeded! I... Sign in to see full entry.

Sabotage : If Anything Can Go Wrong, it Will

Two days ago, I received an sms that the symposium of graduating students where I was scheduled to talk was postponed because of venue problems. I read the message after I woke up since it was sent around 1am when I check the details in my cell phone. It was supposed to be that day which will start... Sign in to see full entry.

What's Your Passion?

During my younger days, I thought passion is something I highly enjoy doing. Lately I realized it is much much more. When we enjoy doing something, we do it on our free time-- like watching movies, playing sports or baking a cake. What we are passionate about, we find time to do it-- not only that,...

Not Punishing a Child Molester

Earlier, I saw a news report about a child molester issue not directly settled by a school. The mother was angrily weeping as she spoke of her frustration over the administration for not taking the necessary steps. It is sad that such a scandal is often covered up to "protect" the reputation of an... Sign in to see full entry.

Lessons from Hindsight

Hindsight gives us the best opportunities to learn because we are able to see the big picture. In small events, it could be success or failure but when we assemble the pieces together, it may form a beautiful portrait of a part of our lives. Earlier, I learned that I angered a minority group in our... Sign in to see full entry.

I Will Never Go Back to that Watch Repair "Rip-off" Man

My watch's battery is dead. Earlier, I went to a watch repairshop to have this replaced when I saw the same guy who replaced my other watch's battery 2 years ago at another shop. I could not forget his face because of what he did. The watch was still in my arm when I asked him how much it would cost... Sign in to see full entry.

The Wonderful Juice Making Machine

I often see it on home tv shopping network but I think it is too good to be true. The prototypes only looked good but when it comes to actual juicing, it is very tedious and it won't take long before you get tired of its process and maintenance. Not with this baby. I can put in a whole apple or pear... Sign in to see full entry.

An Idea Worth More Than $1000 Whose Time Has Come

Around 3 years ago, I decided to buy an lcd projector for my home entertainment despite its prohibitive price. I got to use it only occasionally because I found it bothersome to set it up everytime I would watch a dvd-movie. Yesterday, as if Newton's apple fell on my head, I had an inkling to set it...

The Japanese Seaweed Snack Made from Thailand Made the Day!

People love something new. Yesterday I called a meeting and I was thinking of what to serve as a snack for the attendees. Then I remembered about this Japanese seaweed snack similar to the ones used to wrap sushis. But this one was a variation; it was thicker, crunchy and more delicious. And this is...

Meaningless Quality Time with People

As my 2-year old son is growing up, I notice he becomes more demanding of my presence. He would bring a ball and close the door behind him signifying that I cannot leave the room until our play session is over. Aside from playing ball, we do other activities like assembling puzzles and tickling each... Sign in to see full entry.
