PLC (Pedestrian Lane Cat)

While waiting for my ride home, I chanced upon this easygoing little feline making himself / herself quite at home in the middle of the pedestrian lane near my office building …

I tried to get acquainted with PLC when he / she crossed the street. But PLC decided to turn around and go into some nearby bushes …

Um, thanks …

Just had one of my supermarket reward cards renewed a few days ago. So usually, these things expire after one year. But apparently, it will take a good long time before I can do that with my just-renewed card …

Hope I’ll still be around! X3

I am Yuki and I sleep funny

Nope, I sure as heck am not dead …

2015 had been a toxic and anguish-filled year for me, in terms of finances, personal-that-are-also-connected-to-family problems, schmucks in the workplace and the new-but-age-old-and-still-saddening discovery that the people who smile the most can be the ones whose knives plunge the deepest into your back.

I have gone through bouts of depression, waded through the darkest valleys of despair, anger and bitterness. Faced cowards, liars, hypocrites, wimps and narrow-minded stuffed shirts. And let’s not forget that dreaded 4-word sentence – See you in court.

Which was why this blog has been silent for 2015.

I was also quiet last year because I didn’t want to die before my time, ehehehe …

So.

Enough’s enough. I’m through dilly-dallying and drinking too much whine (no, this is not a misspelling). I’m rolling up my sleeves, 2017. Let’s do this together, Dad …

2015 so far …

January 2015 is about to end soon, and it’s also too soon to say if 2015’s going to be as rollercoaster-ish as 2014. But so far, things are coming along quite swimmingly, at least on the writing front:

“A Fox, A Rose – and a Prince: Trailer for THE LITTLE PRINCE Hits Web! (yes, it was in December – but it’s the Little Prince!)

“7th International Manga Award Winners” (manga, comics, fumetti, bande dessinée – all different, all unique, but one and the same)

“Winners of the 59Th Shogakukan Manga Awards” (ghost stories, genies, yakuzas, NEETs and a temperamental 4th-grader!)

“MANGA REVIEW: Shinya Shokudou” (my first manga review! ^^)

“Winners of the 2014 KODANSHA MANGA AWARDS” (tennis and rakugo, anyone?)

What I’ve Been Up To …

Actually, these links happen to be one of the things that I’ve been up to. It’s good to flex one’s writing “muscles” – and I’d like to thank Flipgeeks.com for the writing workout. And thanks, Dad, for leading me to them …

Ika-labing isa ng Setyembre, 2001

I just remembered that today is September 11, and while wandering around the internet, I found a video tribute to some of the Filipino casualties on that tragic and fateful day. I guess it serves as a reminder that 9/11 isn’t just an “American” tragedy – it was everyone’s tragedy …
