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.
I am Jay Supetran, a Filipino working as a development finance consultant and freelance writer. I am currently residing in Manila with my wife Beng, shuttling to Myanmar and other Southeast Asian countries where I coordinate implementation of development projects. I share work-related articles in field work notes and contribute to Faithwriters.com. I also write for Myanmar Insider, a monthly business magazine in Myanmar.
