Blame it on New Year – it brings a sense of New Beginnings and Letting Go’s, not to mention – Moving On’s. I was thinking of looking back at 2012’s happenings in my life, but I find myself looking back on the past decade of my life. I don’t know how that came about, I just realized if I look back from last year (it’s already 2 hours to New Year here…), 2013 will be the same as 2012 – or at least not much of a difference.
See, way back 2002 – things are much much different, a lot have happened and the impact of decisions and choices is only felt now til the last days of 2012. Well, technically for the long-term decisions and goals – which I never really have simply because time is never long-term for me. It’s me talking and am not generalizing. If you are one of those people who had the same impulsive and courageous character then we have the same disease. I plainly consider the tomorrow as a chore and live the days as if it were to end today. That is also the reason am saying I felt the consequences of 10 years eating me up just lately. I worried for a while, then got mad, hated myself for a few minutes – then I finally admitted defeat. I can’t beat myself for my choices – it is me, no matter how many New Year’s resolution I write – I live daily and not on tomorrows. What kind of failures really burn? I only know of personal and emotional attachments. Career and finances are always that something we can always recover from. Unfortunately, with raging emotions and physical attachment – things are murky and blurry especially when reason is all but a cliché’. Continue reading
Number one in extent, number one in population. The world’s largest continent is also the most populous with approximately 3,8 billion inhabitants, 60% percent of the world’s population. China and India are the dominant countries in the Asian market, but when it comes to vacations the southeast part of the continent is more popular: Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. Lately, South Vietnam and Cambodia have emerged as upcoming destinations for restless travelers, while Tokyo in Japan is always a must-go place for people that want to live, even for a few days, in a “Megalopolis”. India on the other hand offers other kind of thrills: busy big cities, curry smell and the sacred river of Ganges. The Great Wall in northern China and the Taj Mahal in northern India are sights you shouldn’t miss.
Asia is home to several language families and many language isolates. Most Asian countries have more than one language that is natively spoken. For instance, according to Ethnologue, more than 600 languages are spoken in Indonesia, more than 800 languages spoken in India, and more than 100 are spoken in the Philippines. China has many languages and dialects in different provinces.
Asia is too massive and diverse to conceptualize as a single digestible travel “destination”. Continue reading

Determining and describing distance in getting directions while traveling on places that one is least familiar with – Is a NECESSITY. Often, when we visit places as “tourists” – we deal with native or local people who does not use English as their 1st dialect. How will you get help or assistance in getting accurate directions from one place to another – I learned through experience, tough one. I realized one word changes the connotation or meaning of the whole sentence – that’s when you get lost. So I will share a trivia, petty as it may seem, but it couldv’e saved me the hassle if I paid enough attention.
The Photos will help you identify the difference and the usage of these words. Continue reading
