post 2nd renaissance daydream

I had Oyakodon at this Japanese restaurant on the ave (University District) at a little place called Kikio (like in Inyausha) right next door there was a restaurant called Manila, which is were I originally intended to go, however they were closed. Ironically, Kikio had Philippines newspaper and Japanese language local information setting on a counter for free. Also the yagomoto was sooo good, for under 6 dollars total, I couldn't eat it all and now have my lunch setting next to me.
I am at Coffee and Comics, a mere 100 yards from my apartment (maybe less).

Coffee and Comics is a great place to set and get your wifi on, small but functional. The only drawback being that you have to walk across the street for a restroom. But the bandwidth is good. (with the speakeasy speed test 2479kbps down and 311kbps up) The coffee is real good, easily in the top coffee shops of Seattle, choice of music is great Isaac (the morning guy) likes Autechre, Kraftwerk basically German techno. The other guy Will, who used to be the owner is a totall mac addict, and has 2 macs for customers to use if you don't have your laptop with you. He also plays good tunes.

I picked up a copy of PNT Philippine news today, while at Kikio's because I'm very interested in visiting and possibly living in the PI for a while (as well as Japan) So I'm immersing myself into the culture at every opportunity.

On the front page I noticed a big article about a government fund to help women and minorities get business's going, very interesting, If I was a minority and a woman I would basically have an easy loan for opening up shop on a little tienda here in the U. which with the Asian population and people like me that like Asian food, there is no shortage of customers.

Also, an advertisement in the back shows some real nice condos in Fort Bonifacio, Ermita Manilla, EDSA, Pioneer, Mandaluyong City, but my favorite was the 45 story, residential condominium on Topaz street, Ortigas Center Pasig City.

I would love to live there for a few years and just study, study, study, because the cost of living is so inexpensive that I wouldn't have to worry about financial sustenance, and could just absorb computers. Maybe another Alaska excursion could pay for it (the only problem is the last 6month excursion about killed me, and I still haven't fully recovered.) Got to be another way.

Since we are on the subject of Asian things Regine Valasquez and Pops Fernandez are appearing at the Meydenbauer Center tickets ranging from 48 to 120 per seat.

Well, this was another moment in my time zone, life in the post second renaissance. The Ruby programming language continues to be absorbed ever so slowly, reading includes 20 tech books on my oreilly bookshelf, and some berkely hacker spy storey. Cuckoos egg.
