Batad was a whole new experience for me. I decided I would take on something new and more value to myself. Batad is a barangay in Banaue in the Ifugao province.

By Day … Continue reading COVID vs Oreo Cookies?

But last Friday, June 11, I finally did a 24-hour fast! There … Continue reading Friday Fasting

I appreciate the value that gadgets bring to my productivity and health. And so I like to surround myself with them. In some cases, I am even an early tech adapter/sneezer. But this planned obsolescence sucks as it means I have to let go of them soon. Like really soon. Continue reading Bitter Pill: Oh, My Gadgets!
