Buzzed, Bullish, & Branded

There are a few things in this world with which I can feign some degree of expertise. Basketball, food, and despite what some people think, my job as well – marketing.  And I’m not ashamed to admit that there are times when certain industry developments really get the inner nerd in me jazzed up. With […]

There were a number of factors that led to this piece: a slow day at work, a compelling urge for a creative outlet, a longing for home, a desire to motivate a friend, but most importantly, a rampant craving for some damn good pizza. Enjoy: I was bristling with anticipation.  No feeling beat the rush […]

Big Decisions
Big Decisions

“So how is Hong Kong?” Ever since leaving home for the Orient, that’s been a common question for me.  And with any big decision, it seems like treason to answer with anything short of “ONLY THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE I’VE EVER HAD #BOLDMOVE.” Big decisions look wider under the magnifying glass which leads us to […]

I don’t know who first paired ice cream with carbo-loaded desserts but they deserve a national holiday.  That simple stroke of genius changed the game forever, paving the way for the beauty that is à la mode.  Be it pies, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, whatever – sweet carbs go better with a scoop of ice cream. Earlier this […]

Food blogging has always been an aspiration of mine.  But for years, I’ve forgone such endeavors, hiding behind excuses such as lack of time or my trademark “there’s only so many ways to describe food without sounding like a snob.” But with the ink drying on my new life in a new city and a blog […]

Plot Twist
Plot Twist

The universe works in funny ways. Two months ago, after a frustrating and fruitless job hunt, I finally worked up the courage to temporarily forgo my quest for employment and embark on an extended bout through Southeast Asia.  Armed with a backpack, a strict budget, and no itinerary, I set off in hopes of eventually […]

Unlikely Bonds
Unlikely Bonds

Tranquil scenes like the one above are a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle that often characterize life in a foreign country.  What’s equally comforting are the subtle reminders of home, familiar relics from past lives unexpectedly unearthed in unfamiliar lands, no matter how profanely obscene they may be. Big Sean’s angry, resentful hit song, I Don’t Fuck […]

The Answer Is No
The Answer Is No

Those beady eyes staring at you through the branches belong to a tarsier, one of the world’s smallest primates and one I spotted during my visit to the Tarsier Foundation on the island of Bohol.  As a child, I was an avid lover of all things animal kingdom and thus it’s always a treat to witness exotic […]

Manila Musings
Manila Musings

I successfully made it through my stay in Manila without being robbed, an accomplishment I once would’ve thought to be damn near impossible given my previous misconceptions of the city.  But in between an endless stream of street food and mastering the the obscure jeepney system, I learned that there’s much more to the Philippines capital than […]

Joyce Is A Bitch, I Mean Cock
Joyce Is A Bitch, I Mean Cock

Fuck Joyce.  She’s a bitch. Fine, she only made me lose about $12 but when you’re on a budget, that can go a long way.  We’re talking about nearly five meals worth or even a night’s stay at a hostel here. But I digress.  Let’s make sure not to lose focus of the fact that Joyce is […]
