I left Singapore back in 2005, perhaps a little disillusioned by the socio-political landscape at that time. It was a hard decision, leaving family, friends and a host of support systems, especially when my next stop wasn’t exactly an expat paradise. Life in Manila wasn’t a bed of roses, but my limps were holding up… Read More »
What would you think of a job ad that is posted for almost a year? Financial Times Electronic Publishing (Phils.), Inc. has been seeking to hire Senior Web Production Editors for its Philippine office for as long as I can remember (probably since last July when I started to take notice because the ad was… Read More »

Doesn’t mean I’m not giving pause to the pecularities in life. One thing I observed is that real estate agents (since I’m house hunting) in Shenzhen are as aggressive… Read More »
This is going to be my last post from Manila because I’ll be disconnecting my PLDT DSL service today. Starting from next week, I will be blogging from behind the Great Firewall of China. Wish me luck. The last two-and-a-half years have been a fun ride, and I probably should have talked more about my… Read More »
I’ll be heading over to Hong Kong for a vacation this entire week (helped by the fact that there are three public holidays in the Philippines on Monday, Thursday and Friday) so I may not be able to update this blog as often as I used to. Internet access in Hong Kong’s hotels is kind… Read More »
I wish I could say something profound today, but an explosion in Makati’s Glorietta mall this afternoon killed eight people and injured 80 to 100 more (depending on where you get your news). The explosion was suspected to be caused by a bomb. What puzzles me is that the malls (and most commercial buildings) in… Read More »
