From Taipei with Love... Haha!

Blogging from Taipei, baby!

Got here around 3pm for a stopover, and I have to wait 'til 7pm to board the plane to San Francisco.  Can't wait, man!  Can't wait! :D

Taoyuan Airport is big and clean.  And quiet.  I also get to charge my phone and laptop here, in preparation for my 11+ hours on the air.  Sayang, wish I could go outside and see Taipei 101.  And sayang, I don't even have a picture of myself here - the downside of traveling alone!

Ready for Break!

I'm so excited that I'm almost panicking for my summer trip a.k.a. the greatest trip ever!!!

May my flights be on time.
May the trains not leave me.
May my baggage not exceed the allowed weight.
May the strangers be kind to me (oh, please, please!).
May my plane seatmate be interesting and accommodating.
May I reach my friend's place in one piece.

I'm leaving on Thursday!  Can't wait!  But first, so many things to do and prepare. :)

Getting Better

So, things change and eventually, you'd be okay.  That place may still be far from sight, or may not even be conceivable at the moment, but trust that you'll get there.  In time. 

Normally, when you lose something, you get a replacement.  That's supposed to fill the void of that whatever you lost.  But, sometimes, with an ugly fate, that replacement won't be anything else but a reminder of what you've lost in the first place.  And you won't be able to move on.  Because you claimed something early on that's not even yours.  And you won't be able to move on because you don't want to.  Can somebody give someone some closure?

Blogging Rights

With the devastating things going around the world- the reckless earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the chaos in the Middle East, the thousands of people who are lost and those who died, and the uncertainties the humanity faces, it's almost wrong to feel bad for one's own little heartaches and doubts.  But then, even with this realization, I still can't help it.  It's guilt-inducing, this wallowing feeling of mine, but still, I let it simmer.  It must be that bad.

It's good then to have this outlet in virtual world.  Nobody or nothing else suffers from your complaints and undue self-pitying, but this little space.  That's one of the blogging rights I claim.

It's kind of cool for March, isn't it?  The wind reminds me of December, but not of Christmas.  No, not at all.

What Boredom Does

Boredom at work makes you do crazy things.  Things you haven't completely thought out about that will cost you your pride afterwards.  Like texting, for instance.
