Fate against me; Why I still haven’t traveled outside the Philippines

Right now, I should be happily strolling around Beijing and Shanghai – learning about our cultural differences, exploring cityscapes, and finally savoring the fruits of a year’s worth of workload.

Dear Romanoff:

Here you are again, talking nonsense with yourself, fighting battles no one has ever heard of. I know, I know life has been so tough this year; who’d have thought we’d get this far, right? It’s difficult, it always has been – fixing something that is not broken, going somewhere without you knowing where. And … More Dear Romanoff:
