Welcome Home Manila – Getting Settled in to a New Life

I’ve been back home in Manila (Bonifacio Global City) for just over two weeks now, trying to get settled in to a new life here in Asia. Wow, time sure does fly! Although I would have much preferred to have been more active blogging lately, quite frankly, I didn’t realize how much running around town I was going to have to do, right from the start!

These are kind of the moments you

Pho Ga Recipe

Summer is here and it’s finally NOT cold in the Bay Area… Still, after being away and overseas for 7 months, you could say I’ve been missing “home cooking”, so irregardless of the weather cooperating (or not), I’m in the mood for some HOT SOUP!

My BGC Morning Routine

In order to be consistent with anything, a person likely needs to operate with some kind of structure and routine in place.

Don’t you know that they’ve done research studies out there and they’ve found that people who are unproductive, lounging around all day and not using their brains actively end up becoming completely depressed people who feel totally disconnected with modern society? I mean if you’re not interacting with your co-workers on a regular basis, your brain is just gonna become mush and you’re going to feel like you’re going through life without any goals or purposes!

Spring Cleaning – Water Fasting for Better Health

Post_Meal - 1

Out here in the Bay Area, it finally looks like the rainy season has come to an end… maybe… In any event, the weather is starting to warm up again and it’s feeling more and more like spring. With that said, I thought now would be as good at time as any to initiate some spring cleaning. No, not in the traditional sense, although I do have a ton of clutter that I need to sort out before I can check out of Silicon Valley for good and embark for Hong Kong, the site of the next chapter of this journey…

But before we can get from Point A to Point B, I first need to “fix” myself. So, starting today, I’m going to
