My friend Tet,  lovely girl that she is,  started the campaign #whywekendo to promote Kendo in the Philippines particularly Manila Kendo Club (MKC), my first Kendo family. I started Kendo a little over 3 years ago and I’ve only been with MKC a couple of months before I moved to Saskatoon.

The Move: Setting up my DigitalOcean Server

I recently moved to a new webhost (yay!) because the old is just getting way too expensive and unreliable as I barely use it and I don’t host anyone else anymore anyway. A good friend suggested that I go for DigitalOcean as he has been using for a long time and had not complaints about Read More

Google Takeout for Backup

So, what do you do when you see that your free Google account space is running out?

Google has awesome services we use daily and had become an integral part of out lives like GMail, Drive and Photos.  But like most of us, we use it free and thus it has limited space.


We can all download our files, however, if you have a lot to sort out especially with Photos, it can be a drag to sort out.

Google Takeout is a great tool that can help you free up some much needed space by allowing us to download our files by bulk, by app.  Just select which app you would like to backup at that time –

Kendo Life

Almost two years ago in Manila, I made a very #decisive thing. It was so decisive that it deserved a hashtag.  A good friend invited me to watch her Kendo class. I watched. I marveled, jaw dropped.  I was amazed.  I told myself, why not? I signed up. #Decisive.

While learning Kendo, I got to strengthen bonds with old friends, met knew good ones, fangirled over awesome sempais and senseis, joined some “protein parties”, planned genki Kendo-related stuff. All these  of course after the muscle pain, jelly legs and arms, the blisters with your skin getting peeled off aka your new badge of honor, the fear of dying while cleaning the dojo and the concept of death always looming around with every clash of the shinai, and the constant push to your physical and psychological limit. Yes, madness. It was good.

Things quickly spiraled, changing, that I found myself in a foreign and cold, cold land where winter is always coming  (woosh!).  I don’t know what I’m doing here half the time. However, I promised  to continue this most #decisive thing – my journey to being a Kendo practitioner.
