June 20, 2016 • English, Online Life, Web Programming

After my last attempt to purge all my tweets at Twitter. This time I was removing all my plurks at Plurk, a less popular yet unique microblogging site. While there are apps for deleting entire tweets, I didn’t find one for Plurk, except a python script. At first I was deleting it one by one using […]

Dear My Friends

June 12, 2016 • English, Self Reflection

Dear my friends, Sometimes there are ups and downs in life. Sometime it’s so up high that I didn’t notice my surrounding. Sometime it’s so down that I wished I could have you on my side. Sometime I just missed you so much that I kept calling your names. As time passed, we are all taking […]

Beyond Denial: Fear Based Living

March 20, 2016 • English, Self Reflection

This year is dedicated for me to work on exploring and discovering who I really am so I can live an authentic and fulfilling life. Part of the effort to identify myself is by labeling personal traits. I could find some symptoms which hinders me to live a fulfilling life. And recently I just found another term […]

Stuff is not important. People are. Fun is. Passion is.

February 21, 2016 • English, Self Reflection

When we were born, we didn’t bring anything to the world. And when we die, we wouldn’t bring anything from the world. Then why would we live our lives accumulating stuffs and being attached with them which only lose all their meaning once we leave this world? It is very common for people to acquire […]

Valentine’s Day’s Wire Crafting

February 14, 2016 • English, Random

What’s a better activity for a single on Valentine’s day? When I just didn’t feel like going anywhere outside. When rain poured heavily outside, adding a bit more mellow atmosphere. I just enjoyed myself playing with a roll of soldering lead I found in my toolbox. Soldering lead is much better than using twist tie […]

Following up my 2016 resolute attempt for minimalist living and to break attachment with books, I’m listing out books which I have, and books I no longer have which I might need later for reference.

My Life in a Diagram

January 16, 2016 • English, Self Reflection

Today is the middle of January. All the hype and euforia of new year celebration has gone by now. Television and social media are no longer filled with “new year resolution” broadcasts. But you know that there is something more matter. Have you written down your own new year resolution? Years after years it’s always […]

December 31, 2015 • English, Random

2016 is coming in a few minutes. And this new year’s eve is surrounded by rain as always. Wishing you a happy happy new year!

It’s December 31st

It’s December 31st. The very last day like any other years, there are so many things going on through my mind. A roll of memories quickly rolling over the mind playing back past events I’ve been through. A list of achievements reached. A longer list of year-long goals yet to be met. A set of […]

Social Media is Anything but Social

November 18, 2015 • English, Self Reflection, Social Media

There have been numerous posts of this kind around the web. And you might have read one too. The social media we know today is so much different than what it is like before, or at least around 2000s when I embraced the internet and social media. Once it was a good way to connect […]
