The search for an (internet) connection: 2 days, and I smell desperation

You will never guess where I am updating this blog. In an INTERNET CAFE, somewhere in urbane Makati…surrounded by kids shouting unprintables as they battle virtual assassins on the world wide web; people making a virtual connection on a very public place and what not. In short, its 1998 once again and I have returned…

wakarimashita!

Wakarimashita…it means I Understand. Or do I really? Two weeks into the new year and two weeks into my new job, I am beginning to ask myself if I still understand who I was. I loved the fact that I am challenged to excel in something I have almost forgotten how to do. I mean,…

New Year Stir Crazy

Happy New Year! I can’t believe we’ve just ushered a new year.

The pressure of dressing differently

Are women naturally bitchy?

I woke up late this morning and decided to fix my make-up on the office bathroom. As I entered, I immediately saw my good friend “A”,who works as a receptionist for the company but is also a professional model who had a billboard somewhere in Eastwood where she is hawking underwear. “A” is tall, blessed…
