Here we go! The 6th country of the year. Boy, what the hell is going on. To be honest, I'm in a transition phase right now with work, and have been seen the dawn of the New Year. Because this phrase has been ongoing, it requires me to leave the country often because of visa... Continue Reading →
Hong Kong Airport Review
Airport Link = Arrival Hall Well, my first experience coming to Hong Kong Airport was forgettable, but this experience was stellar. When I got off the train, I literally walked 15 meters and I was greeted by an open-air arrivals terminal. I thought it was spectacular to connect the train and even passenger drop-off (vehicles)...

Traveling Pod #8: Esther Inspiration, Chinese Food, CBD, Mid-Level Escalators & The End + YouTube Video
Here I was before my travel vlog sitting in my hotel when I met a girl named Esther. Esther is a teacher who wants to become so many other things, and hearing what she had gone through was utterly heart-breaking. From physical abuse, to verbal abuse at a French school. So many different things have... Continue Reading →
Traveling Vlog #1: Deep Within Hong Kong
Wow! What a morning it was! I'm going to just sum what happened yesterday morning, then 3pm onwards, I'll talk about my new friend and seeing the real city + escalators + amazing cafe filled with so many professional people with similar accents. So, in the morning, it continued. That's right...from the hotel staff saying,... Continue Reading →
The Journey Before The Journey: Humble Pie!
Here we go! We're going to kickoff the festivities on a serious note. After getting off the AirportLink here in Bangkok, Thailand, I grabbed my luggage and went down three flights of escalators before reaching the base of the station. Looking as incredulous as I possibly could at that given moment, I picked a direction... Continue Reading →
Spartan Beast Malaysia = Cancelled; Now What? Spartan Beast Australia!
I went from booking a ticket, thinking that my Spartan Beast in Malaysia was on a Saturday, to cancelling a plane ticket and realizing that plane tickets on other days were at extortionate prices. YIKES! What a disaster. What seemed like a sure Spartan Beast and trifecta claiming weekend turned into a nightmare whereas I... Continue Reading →
Traveling Pod: Episode 6 – From Hell To Heaven!
Double check-ins, as mentioned before (at Don Meung International in Bangkok, Thailand), had some stereotypical treatment to them. Yeah, already mentioned. Then there was the delay turned almost mid-air collision with not one, but two other aircrafts. I saw it with my own eyes. We were ascending and we flew directly under a Singapore Airlines...

Ramble of Positivity: Episode XXVI – Number Four + A Resounding Offer
Here I am in the middle of the check-in line, grateful as hell (although the following events will lead to a different podcast on self-control) because this is a record forth country this year alone. Not only that, but an offer -- here's the story. Back in 2016, I taught at a company in an... Continue Reading →
Traveling Pod: Episode 4 – Vientiane, Laos — The Roots! Stunning Human Beings & Gratitude
Air Asia flight bound for Wattay International Airport in Vientiane. Hmmm, I'll just let the nostalgia sit in for a bit. Just 3 years ago, I was scampering across the streets of Vientiane with a Frenchman who couldn't handle his alcohol, got snubbed by some tuk-tuk drivers (just like Thailand), and ended up walking home...

Interviewee #12 – David Mauro – The Author Who Scaled Mt. Everest
Wow! Just a story that resonated with me so much. This was definitely the most inspiring story I've ever heard in my life, and it almost reduced me to tears at one point. This man, by the name of David Mauro, combatted a number of things in his early forties: divorce, death, plummeting job, etc. ... Continue Reading →
