Our company had recently held its annual Team Building at Warner Brothers World Abu Dhabi. The theme park just opened last July 2018. It was a chance to bring out the inner child in us. For one day, we were told not to think about work. But I received one a work-related phone call that day, well that's a different story.

My three-week vacation is over. I spent 95% of my time at home because it was raining throughout. How did I forget that August is monsoon season in the Philippines. But still, it was still a good break from the 40 deg C temperature in United Arab Emirates.
During my vacation, I gained 4 kgs. How can I resist my mom's home-cooked meals? For 21 days, I did not visit the gym. I ate, and ate, and ate until I fall asleep. Good times. And in that 21 days, only 2 days were sunny. That's the only time we were able to explore the city and the mountain side.
Duyan is the Filipino term for hammock. It is also a cafe in the Silay City, where the photo was taken. How I wish the weather was better during my vacation but nature is beyond our control. So instead of regretting, just make the most of it especially if you are with your family and loved ones.
Oh - and I just recently saw the trailer of the movie Edie. It inspires me travel. If workload is a little lighter, I will pack my stuff and travel.

The temperature started to reach mid-40's and it's giving me a burning sensation every time I go out of my accommodation. It is my first summer here in the Middle East as a resident. My friends and colleagues told me that this is still not the peak of summer season, perhaps in a month, it will hit 50 deg C and higher.

A few weeks ago, a friend sent me a message asking why I haven't posted travel photos lately. I was quite busy with work. But one weekend, instead of staying at home, I decided to go to Louvre Abu Dhabi, the latest architecture and tourist attraction in Abu Dhabi, United

Current workload is taking-off that I always lost count of the days, weeks, and months. I am still on probationary period, so I have to do my part to get that regular employee status. During the first week of April, I went to Thailand for a business trip. It was also the same week that I was featured again at Poets United. I am so sorry I wasn't able to reply to each and everyone.

Yes, that is eleven years of shooting, blogging and distilling thoughts. As you may already know, I started blogging when I was jobless. Since then, I made sure that at least I have one post per month though the number of posts per year dramatically decreases. I am sorry, I have been saying this every blogsary.

Reuniting with friends whom you haven’t seen for a long time is always a great time. When I found out that some of my high school and college friends are in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, I cleared one of my weekends to travel and explore the city with them. But two days were not enough.
