The /NOW Page Movement Derek Sivers started way back 2015, and here I am joining 6 years after.

Basically, I will put updates from what had happened the previous month and recent days leading to this post. Okay, here goes nothing…

Last month of 2021 was a mixture of good and bad.

Good, that I was able to travel again but for work, to 4 areas in 4 days. Bad, that the areas I went to were affected by Typhoon Rai (local: Odette). Still thankful that I was already back in MNL when the typhoon landed, otherwise I’d be stuck there for the following days/weeks.

COVID cases are on the rise because of the Christmas holiday and highlighted by the incident re: a traveler who skipped quarantine (sheesh) With things easing up in the metro, this kinds of stories shows how one careless person can affect the effort of the many.


2021 was a challenging year for us. From work burnout with previous employer, to contracting & recovering from COVID, to transferring to a new office while living with the virus, and the tragedy caused by the last typhoon to enter PH.

It has been one hell of a year.

I hope that 2022 will be kinder to everyone and hopefully we all learn to live life knowing that living the “normal” life will not be the same as 2019.
