My second night living alone, I cried. I was still rethinking whether it was right for me to have gone back to uni after 8 years. You’d think why would it ever be wrong when I’m pursuing studies again? I’d say, I had been the breadwinner of the family since I left the uni at… Read More On my second night alone
For years, I have been deluding myself that I could actually write something worth reading. Must have stemmed from elementary and high school journalism classes I took. The truth is, I’m a better reader than a writer. But when it comes down to it, I simply enjoy reading without the requisite poetic waxing and over… Read More I Am Not A Writer. I Just Have Internet Connection.
If you haven’t watched all of Season 3, stop reading to avoid spoilers. The last thing I want is some whiny TV fan complaining that this post ruined his viewing experience.

As in the case of Wikipedia where I find most everything interconnected. I cannot explain the thrills that I get from the smallest connection one actor have… Read More Wiki fans the flames of my obsessions
Over the weekend, my butt refused to leave the bed in front of our tv. If you had to make me choose between family gatherings and TV time, of course it’s TV time. I’m a crazy loner like that. Last Sunday, I made the fatal mistake of watching Once Upon A Time on Star World. It… Read More Once Upon A Time, I loved and hated fairy tales
Disclaimer: I do not know which items are spoilers anymore because my boundaries have been blurred since I started reading A Song of Ice and Fire. I haven’t really watched Game of Thrones season 2 for the sole purpose of a dvd marathon on a weekend. So far, HBO has released Episode 9, Blackwater and next… Read More Obsessing Soon: Game of Thrones Season 2
