Manila Turista (Part 2)
(Part 1 here.) 1.14.2012 On Carlos Celdran’s Intramuros “If These Walls Could Talk” Walking Tour I know, I should at least have pictures to go with this post.

1.7.2011 Okay, here we go. I was talking to Karlo last night and reflecting on what I’ve accomplished with PdP and my life in the past year. And while I may have taken steps forward, I’ve also taken steps back, and I feel I am almost at the same point I was last year.

I had a lot of plans for my Christmas break, productive things like writing blog posts, editing videos for Nomad Manager and Punchdrunk Panda blogs, dabbling/experimenting with instrumental track-making, painting, reading, and those other things that have some sort of tangible output with which to gauge the “productivity” of time spent during the holidays.
