Every morning brings me quiet happiness. A steady stream of wind from the huge windows cool the house, blowing away the previous night’s coldness in my body left by the air conditioned bedroom.

All started when I planned to see
1. an office
2. a museum
3. some people
Getting lost, like I said, is not a bad thing, at least to me, who has an uncanny record of running away from home (since 3 years old) and going to places I’ve never heard of. In the presence of strangers, I am most comfortable, but I have to admit, fear would always creep in, touching me with its cold hands, emptying my chest as if I’m on a rollercoaster dive.
The last time I got lost here in Singapore, I discovered some things for myself. First is the narrow alley of corporate offices housed in rundown, wood-framed two/three-storey apartment jammed side by side, set against the urban jungle in Tanjong Pagar, one of the business districts (like Makati) in SG.
One of these offices I found in the Internet and planned to see was Ink, an international media company that publishes in-flight magazines for several airlines in Australia, Singapore, Thailand and so much more, including the Philippines’s Cebu Pacific. The door of their office stands inconspicuously on the wall of 89 Neil Road on Outram Park, and nobody would notice it unless they look at it very well, because the building itself looks abandoned: it’s quiet and deserted, save for a few passers-by. I pried open the door after buzzing in and found myself on a tiny vacant room with an elevator on the other side. There was a magazine stand, and nothing else that I remember. No sofa, no receptionist, no security personnel. It was quieter inside. It reminded me of that scene in MIB (Men In Black) when J entered a weird building with a weird lobby, and true enough when I went up to the third floor, just like in MIB, the elevator door at my back opened to Ink’s office. When I went out of the office, I immediately gulped in fresh air.Read More

How My Sister Could Possibly Attract All The Negative Vibes Of The Universe In One Week (the singapore flight misadventures)
My sister, Micon, was scheduled to fly to Singapore on the last day of Oct. to work as consultant for a P&G account.
Guess what can happen to someone who’s about to work overseas and who has no OEC (Micon: “ a clearance for those going abroad to work from the Philippines”)?
She got “off-loaded.”
When she was about to step on the plane itself, the immigration officer looked at her papers and asked her to get her bags (which were already loaded in the plane). She debated, she cried, she called me.Read More
