This blog is about people, places, events, books, films and other creations and phenomena I encountered and experienced as I enjoy this journey called life, going slow and ‘smelling the flowers’ along the way.
I write about personal reflections and insights as a journal to keep me reminded of the innumerable things I have to thank for. Sharing to others who love the same things is the essence of the Filipino term kalakalan which means to trade, and therefore I expect readers to share their insights in return. If you have something to say or share, feel free to do so.
I am Jay Supetran, a Filipino working as a development finance consultant and freelance writer in Southeast Asia. I am currently residing in Myanmar with my wife Beng, where I manage a development project in Kayin State. I also write for Myanmar Insider, a monthly magazine; and contribute to Faithwriters.com.
