Three Cs of Bloggers Engagement


I've been blogging for almost 5 years but I rarely or almost not talk about my field of work, Marketing Communications, because I want to write more about non-work topics where I'm also interested - movies, mass media, heritage, travel etc. 

But lately, I've received invitations to talk or write about the craft, the practice, the profession.  So aside from accommodating such opportunities to share what I know, I will also try to share it in this blog once in a while.

Treasure Find 37 - Why I prefer HILOT than other massage treatments

I must admit, I'm a massage addict.  Well, it's probably because of the regular stress I get from work, blogging and a lot of other things.  But don't get me wrong, I know stress is part and parcel of our lives.  That's why my remedy for it is a regular massage.

Before my hilot therapy session

I usually have a backpain because of the laptop and all the gadgets I carry.  If you'll comment why bring it regularly as if it's the solution to the problem, then I would say it's not.  As someone who's in the digital practice, my gadgets are my tools.  So I can't leave them behind.

Reunions with Rossi Sweet Red


Thunderous laughter, sweet tears of joy, an endless weave of stories, and the passage of time become irrelevant as though the earth has temporarily stopped from its tedious orbit around the sun.

And the journey continues...

Last week, I was contemplating of stopping the blog already because I somehow got tired of a lot things -- time, traffic, disturbing incidents and difficult people.  But I stumbled upon this post by our CG lead Lawrence:

"The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."
Happy Tuesday! #TuesdaysWithMorrie #ChooseDayWithMorrie #MitchAlbom #CGchooseDayCycle14

And it woke me up.  Why give up something that gives me purpose and allows me to reach out and affect people in a positive way.  The obstacles I mentioned above should not stop me for doing something valuable for me and the people around me.  Just like in stories, we need the antagonists right? :) Hehehe.

So now, I revisited why I blogged in the first place - to squeeze my creative juice and connect to like-minded people.  And I unearthed all the memorable stories, for me and my readers, that I chronicled, for the last 4 1/2 years.
