Very proud of all the women that spoke and shared.

With gratitude,

Paris, 2010

That year, I spent two weeks in Paris to find and heal myself. I took the first photo on top of a Ferris wheel. My sister and I had no money, spent the last few coins on coffee and jumped on a free Ferris wheel ride as it rained. The second photo I took as I was walking around. 

Trips like these are the ones you look back and realise were incredibly therapeutic, and set the stage for the new chapter. I should really organise my photos better. Looking forward to the next. 

Photos: Walls

I took these a few months ago but wanted to post it up as I clean out photos in my phone. 

I really do love murals. Growing up, I would watch my sister paint murals in her high school back in Long Beach. Back in the Philippines, I would crave just to find some street art hidden around the city… Now, I like to show people from other parts of the world how the walls in Hong Kong can also look like… Yes, I roam the streets quite often just with an open eye.

Speaking of my recent Japan trip…

Time passed too fast but at the same time, too slow. Where 15 hours could feel like only 5 minutes had gone by, and 5 minutes could feel like it’s been 15 hours…

I find it effortless and non-intimidating¬†for me to jump in and out of this realm. I needed a break from Hong Kong, and the many multiple worlds that exist within this world prove that there is always something new to discover…uncover…recover…

Til next time.

Photos: Tech In Asia Tokyo Recap



Catching up with a few of my¬†posts today. Here’s a look at¬†our adventure in Tokyo last September, when we (The Digital Vandal) attended Tech In Asia Conference¬†(TIA). It was only Amanda and me on this trip this time unlike the other trips we’ve had for our app. We¬†had a booth on the second day of TIA, and the rest of the time was spent meeting people and attending talks.

I realised something within my own journey in tech conferences, that not only have I perfected key¬†“pitching” strategies, but I have also mastered my energy levels and can perfectly schedule the times when I’ll need caffeine. I’m like a Jedi-Master I tell ya.

But anyway, what’s not to love about Tokyo? I love getting lost here. I’ll be posting more about this trip but here’s a look at some photos from the conference after the jump.
