My Fascination with Blood Giving

(old photo… circa 2011) Note: If you’re squeamish about needles, you probably shouldn’t read this blog. Personally, I have an irrational fear of paper cuts (long story) and I would hate it if I even glanced at a blog about that topic — so I totally understand if you don’t want to continue… See you next week! I spent a […]

HA44

I can get quite introspective on the 5-hour flight between Honolulu and San Jose. It’s because I’m sitting in a symbolic space between my two worlds. It happens more often on the flight back to the mainland (usually Hawaiian Airlines Flight 44)… probably because I’m reviewing in my head a week’s worth of activity, reflecting on all […]

My Dad, the Social Butterfly

This morning I woke up early and managed to catch my Dad before he left for his morning routine. We had breakfast together, and he was lamenting the fact that he had made a mistake and double-booked himself over lunch. He currently keeps three paper calendars: one that he keeps in his pocket, one on […]

Being Bored

My iPhone has been draining my creative juices! …or so said the story that I heard on NPR last Friday. Apparently there’s a project called Bored and Brilliant: The Lost Art of Spacing Out. The founders say that rise of the smartphone has led to a decline in original ideas, so they’re issuing us a week-long challenge […]

Thank You for Inventing This!

Thank You for Inventing This!

Gratitude is linked to happiness. And sharing useful techie stuff with friends also makes me happy. So I’m starting a periodic series called “Thank You for Inventing This” to honor the various tools I use and like. Don’t get me wrong — I’m not trying to get into the business of product reviews or endorsements. I’m just […]

Why do you do what you do?

Why do you do what you do?

I used to dread the question: “So… what do you do?” It’s the usual thing to ask during polite chit-chat, but I’ve never had a job title that fully described my job, so it’s always been a bit uncomfortable. Whenever someone asked, I’d pause to size up how much they really wanted to hear. Instead of giving my actual […]

Meet My Dad

When I made the decision to launch my consulting business, I knew that a lot of my potential clients would be in Hawai’i.  So I’ve been setting up my old bedroom at my Dad’s house in Moanalua Valley to serve as a second home-office. Moving back in with Dad has allowed me to learn so much […]

2015: Return of the Blog!

Happy New Year!  Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!  Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! Many of us have rituals as we greet the new year. Yesterday morning, as I ate my ozoni soup, I reflected on how strong mine are. I braved massive crowds at Mitsuwa’s on New Year’s Eve in order to get a precious bunch of mizuna, a […]
