Fun In Singapore

Now that I’ve had enough time to recover from our recent vacation, I may as well write about it. We took a well deserved family break this past weekend for a short holiday in Singapore. Like most vacations that we ┬átake, it was too short. My general rule for travel is, plan to spend at […]

Homeless, from Chicago To Manila

At various points in life, all of us are convinced that we have seen it all. A week and a half ago, I went to visit some friends at their office in Makati. While outside of the building smoking a cigarette, I came across the most unusual and extrodinary person that I have met in […]

My list for 2009

Since 2002, my schedule has been chaos. My days and nights are often reversed without warning (due to work or travel). In my industry, […]

How culture is lost

I was reading something interesting from the BBC describing a decision by Mexico City to evict some 15,000 merchants from the city center. I believe that this decision might be a big mistake. I live in the capital of street enterprise, Manila (The Philippines). A short walk down the main road leads me to an […]

Writing well is the best type of SEO

Finding something interesting to read on the Internet is becoming increasingly difficult. I find lots of articles on blogs, most of them just copying what someone else said. Other times, the article might be interesting and fun to read if it was not trying to achieve a certain count of various key words. My articles […]
