What I'm doing now: 1st October 2023

This is my now page for 1st October 2023. What is a now page? A now page goes to a page that tells you what a person is focused on at this point in their life. Inspired by Derek Sivers and his Now page movement and subsequent website.

This is what I'm currently doing:

Where Am I

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Where Was I

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Went there twice last month, once for WordPress Malaysia conference, and again to sort out some visa stuff. Great city. Modern, affordable, multicultural. Might live there.

Where Am I Going Next

Kuching, Malaysia. Checking in on an apartment I bought.

What Am I Working On

A mixed bag last month – WordPress, Laravel, Hugo, HubSpot CMS. Made my first code contribution to WordPress Core, and it was merged in, so my code is now part of WordPress version 6.4 which will be used on several hundred million websites next month.

What Am I Thinking About

Health! I am super focused right now on getting healthier and fitter. Very inspired by some of the stuff Brian Johnson is doing at Blueprint. While I am not following his methods, it’s made me re-think my attitude to health so diving in to that.

What Was The Main Challenge Last Month

Too much travelling. Left the UK, to Bangkok, to Chiang Mai, to Kuala Lumpur, to Chiang Mai, to Kuala Lumpur, to Chiang Mai. Don’t feel like I’ve had a decent nights sleep in a month, eating badly, things hurt. Hence focus on health this month and for the rest of the year.

What Have I Been Reading

Re-reading Robert Crais novels – right now The Monkeys Raincoat. Joe Pike is the man.

Also read a book by a Chiang Mai acquaintance – Rob Cubbon – titled Enhancing Your Creative Potential. A pretty good read, a few nuggets to take away from it.

What Have I Been Watching

Gangnam Zombie – terrible, like it was made by students or something

Everything Everywhere All at Once – awesome film, didn’t quite believe the husband/wife relationship though. Jamie Lee Curtis so good.

Jack Ryan Series 4 – The first four or so episodes were pretty dull, but the last few were gold.

What Have I Been Hearing

Been listening to old rave music – particularly DJ Daniel Billy Bunters shows on Mondays.

What Have I Been Eating

A lot of amazing Malaysian food. Malaysian food is sooooo good when compared with Thai food, completely over it now.
