Movie Review: Uchiage hanabi, shita kara miru ka? Yoko kara miru ka?

English title: Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom? I would like to believe that at least some would agree that this movie gave Bakemonogatari vibes.

I got curious but of course, it would take a lot of time to actually digest everything.

WFH thoughts

Two years since I started working from home as per compliance with quarantine guidelines in the Philippines and I must say, I have developed some habits far from what I have been doing pre-pandemic. Comparing WFH and on-site work can be difficult for one has what the other lacks but if I were to choose, as of now, I’d rather continue working from home where I am closer to my family. Aside from that, I
