Find an excuse

Friend: Why do you travel? Bruno: I don’t travel, I’m always in Taipei. Friend: So why did you travel before, were you trying to find something? Bruno: Not really, but you know sometimes you pretend you are looking for something, but actually you just want to have fun looking for it, if you find or not doesn’t really make any difference. Friend: How’s that? Bruno: Well it’s like some people when you ask them while…

Lindblum

Friend: Lets go to Lindblum next week? Bruno: Why next week? Friend: I don’t know. Bruno: Why not today? Friend: Because I can’t be that spontaneous. Bruno: Why not? Friend: It’s just not me. Bruno: But how can I plan something for next week, that’s scary. Friend: So you are afraid of commitment. Bruno: It’s not that, but I can’t think that far ahead, and if I say yes now, I’ll probably forget or change…

whatever 13

Friend: What do you want to do today? Bruno: I want to move to Taiwan for good. Friend: Why Taiwan? Bruno: No special reason, just a feeling, I know I should move there but I don’t know the reason. Friend: Funny. Bruno: Not funny. Friend: So why don’t you move there, if you know that’s what you should be doing? Bruno: well, you’ve never felt like you know that what you’re doing is not the…

About finances

Most people I meet, usually ask me how do I make money, or how do I make a living, the answer will vary, depending on the person and the situation. Depending on their ability to think outside the box, their ability to understand or interpreting new ideas, or depending if they seem to be ready or not to understand that things may not be the way they’ve been told they are. And many times they ask…

I'll take the green salad

Remember that episode of Friends when Rachel, Phoebe and Joey, tried to explain to Ross, Monica and Chandler that they didn’t have as much money as them, and they get dragged to this fancy restaurant and they can only order a salad and a glass of water. Because they always have to go “somewhere nice”. That’s how I feel! Not everywhere, of course, this usually happens to me in Singapore, Japan, Australia and Korea, because there…

Going for a walk

Going for a walk here in Singapore and in most SE Asian countries is the equivalent of going for a hike in western countries. A simple thing like grabbing some food usually becomes an expedition, maybe not in Japan, but most Asian countries, most of the times there’s not really a sidewalk you can just stroll around, you usually share a road with cars, bicycles, motorbikes, and many many many people. Sometimes there used to…

Malaysia is the place to chill

Malaysia has become the best place for people like me who have no job and need to live somewhere spending very little money. Why Malaysia and not other SE Asian country? Well, first of all, free visa, not like Indonesia, Laos or Phillipines which charges you 20-25 dolars per month, or Cambodia, Vietnam, Burma,  where the visa fee can be as steep as 50 dolars per month. I’m talking about visa for westerners of course,…

A fire inside

Remember when we were young and there was a fire inside us? All that passion, all those feelings, where are they now? I still remember, back in 2006, when I finally decided to leave my comfort zone and moved away from Barcelona. The excitement I felt, that fire inside that makes you pump more blood, breath more oxygen, and makes you want to fly. All the expectations, the anxiety and the fear that represented going…
