I have a confession to make. I saw the film version years ahead before reading the book. Though I remember liking the film, I knew I had to read the book because I thought I have missed some of the important details.

An art exhibit is currently being held in Tokyo until September 12, 2015. It is one of a kind since it mainly features aquariums coupled with lights, producing a spectacular visual treat. Of course, an aquarium would not make any sense without the kingyo or goldfishes. The exhibition have a solid following since its conceptualization in 2011. I only heard about it this year though. How I wish my brother was here as he loves fishes more than I do.

Three years ago, I was able to witness the HamaorisaiFestival. Back then, I promised to be a part of the event every year but that did not happen.  This time though, I and my friends saw to it that we will be there as spectators or photographers, depending on our moods.  Since a strong typhoon had just left Japan, we were expecting the weather to be good. We trooped to Chigasaki Station at 1 am, camped on the beach at 2 am and started taking photos of the event at 430 am. All the things we do in the name of photography.  Craziness.

Two dates. August 6, 1945 and August 9, 1945. It’s been 70 years since bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These dates will be forever remembered in our history. The devastation is unmatched.

War is a sensitive topic to discuss. Lots had been said about the horrors of war especially during World War II (WWII). And every time WWII is raised, Hiroshima and Nagasaki are always the points of discussion.

I just returned from a business trip, my first in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I can also say this is my last travel for the first half of 2015. From January to June of this year, I traveled a total of 45,032 miles to four countries (South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).

I got this book as a birthday gift from a friend who jokingly challenged me afterwards that I should make my own version after reading it.
