Hi! It's been a while since my last post. Personal tragedies have somewhat slowed me down in all aspects. And just as I was rising again and stepping out of my self-imposed hibernation, tragedies again struck. This time not on a personal level but my country. Perhaps you have read or heard the floods and the earthquake that struck in some parts of my beloved country. Spent some time helping out in my own little way.

Nevertheless, life goes on. I have better appreciation of what I have and of who I am. Hopefully, this renewal of self and spirit will see us better off in the coming days and share more of positive energy with love ones and friends, both in my physical world and here.

Cheers to us all!
