Request

Can I make one request? Can you please, please pray for me? No really, not just say, “Sure,” but really, do include me in your prayers… I’m going to attempt something really difficult this Sunday and I need all the help I can get. Just knowing that there’s people who’s concerned and cheering me on […]

Why is it…

…that moving forward often seems as if you’re moving alone? Aside from a brief luncheon with Top-Climber last Tuesday, I’ve been a hermit the entire week, holing myself up in an airconditioned room for hours to come poring through a book.

Something to Look Forward to…

On March, one of my colleagues from Zurich is visiting Taiwan. The extent of my interaction with him: A few phone calls arranging a client’s trip late in the afternoon.

Linkin Park comes to Taiwan!

“Linkin Fuck! Linkin Fuck!” chanted the huge crowd this evening at the Yuan Shan stadium. “Linkin Fuck?” I thought as I smiled. “Wow, that’s new…“ They were actually chanting “Linkin Park,” who performed tonight, November 16 (Friday) at the Songshan Soccer Stadium to an audience of 37,000 — their second largest in LP history to […]

Moment of Clarity

I think one of the reasons I like placing my thoughts down on paper (or via a blog) is somehow, ideas that were formed in my head suddenly become a lot more real. From their formlessness springs reality, and everything just became a lot clearer. Case in point, this was a week where our entire […]

The Balance of Me

I am an extrovert. I love to be around people, and there was a time when my friend asked me, “How can you stand never to be alone?”I can be quiet at times. Sometimes through the full volumed blasts of the tunes in my iPod shuffle, I sway my body from left to the right […]
