Reading, Writing & Re-writing.

Friday, March 4, 2016


This was a hard last few months. I understand that I neglected you and spent a whole lot of time reading, studying and researching. It was very hard on you. Especially when I spent nearly 12 hours a day on the Internet. But everything happens for a reason and I learned a lot about myself and life in general. I also learned a lot about the two of us as a married couple.

I still have a lot to learn and I still need to grow. I make a lot of good goals for myself but as you know, I take 10 steps forward then 9 steps back. But the important thing is that we are both moving forward, even after I take 9 steps back.

One of the best things of 2016 (so far) is that it is the year we started seeing reality in a similar way. You started seeing things in a more material sense, and from a practical and realistic standpoint, and I started realizing that 'non-scientific claims' are probably an unproven science (in specific situations). It is also the year I started praying again in a deep way to rewire my brain and reclaim the inner peace and mental calmness I once had.

This is a letter of appreciation and a letter of love since it is our 6 Year - Wedding Anniversary but it is also a tired and almost exhausted form of success. This is the month we nearly finished the foundation for our future. The year where everything starts to fall into place and life pays us back for all the sacrifices we made (for ourselves, each other and our family). I can also see us giving back to society in positive ways somewhere along the horizon. That makes me happy too.

Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for overcoming the culture shock of marrying someone completely different. And thank you for being a beautiful person that always grows, always learns and improves every year. The two of us will keep growing, building and loving. 

Love you so much and good job. You've done well :)

It is January 1st today and I am happy. I am happy because it is 2016, and I am happy about the experiences I had in 2015. I will summarize some of the best things that happened in my life during 2015:

  • March 5th, 2015 was my five-year wedding anniversary and I surprised my wife in a romantic way. I had dreamed about surprising her like that for more than a year, maybe 2 to 3+ years before I did. That was one of my favorite days of all-time. The New Year (2016) wasn’t as fancy but I had a similar feeling, I love you Emafe and I love being in your presence :)

  • October 1st, 2015 was the official launch date of It’s More Fun In Davao City, a project that will eventually include the most comprehensive website about Davao City, Philippines.
Throughout 2015 there have also been many developments in Davao City: Local developers have pledged to build more shopping malls, subdivisions are finally finishing up their amenities and a lot of roads + highways have been widened. This makes me happy, especially since we invested in a small house. Our family as a whole also did very well last year. 

Thank you everyone, I am signing off now, I just wanted to share my happiness. I will read this in the future so I remember 2015 and the start of 2016.
