I started blogging back in 1999 even before the term “blog” was invented. Back then, I started a website and called it “My Online Journal”, focusing mostly on my experience moving from the Philippines to Japan, first as a trainee, and then as an employee. Every week, I’d write about what happened, what we learned, where we went, how I felt.
Almost two decades later, I still write about my experience in Japan, but now I also add stories about my travels outside Japan, and I also post videos of some my attempts at music. At the heart of it though, I write about my continuing story as a … Filipino in Tokyo.
