This is my personal blog, wherein I muse about my experiences as a Filipino software developer. I’ll be talking about a lot of the code I write, when possible, as well as bits and pieces of things I’ve learned along the way, as a working developer who has not had a complete formal computer science education, and who is self-taught for the most part.

I’ll also be talking about how I try to balance work and life (and how I fail at adulting).

I used to write a lot more when I was much younger— personal essays and blogs, short stores, etc.— so this is also a way for me to exercise those parts of my brain that have (probably) withered away.


  • What’s with the name, Lizard’s Asylum?

    It’s a long story, tied to a handle I went by when I was younger; I’ve decided to keep it for sentimental reasons

  • Will you be updating regularly?

    Hopefully. I plan to update every Friday evenings, my local time, but as the popular aphorism goes: No plan survives first contact with the enemy. Scratch that, I’m updating every Saturday evening, to give me some breathing room.

  • Wait, aren’t you the child actor?
