Another Milestone

WARNING: This can really be mababaw for some of you. So, if you're not up for it, STOP NOW! :)

Well, this really a milestone for me. Considering I have never been super healthy in the past years. I am super sporty, yes. Athletic, you can say it at times. But I have never been dedicated to a healthy regimen in my 28 years of existence.

So, now with my first milestone. Out of the 30 days of September, I've gone to the gym for 15 times already. And I'm still planning to push for the 19 times, considering I still have the 27th to the 30th this week. 15 times is already enough for me, if you compare it with my past gym attendance. There were months when I missed out on my gym time completely. Or sometimes I had to just run for 10-20 minutes, and spend more time in the Sauna. Hahaha!

Yipee for me!

Now with my second milestone. I ran/jogged/walked/brisk-walked for almost 100 minutes. 10k!!! It's my first time to do 10k. And despite my tired feet, legs, and knees, I am so PROUD of myself! :)

I really can't hide my excitement when the treadmill meter (what do you call that?) showed 10.12 km! Woohoo!

This isn't the end. Even the 30th of September is not the end. I shall continue, until I reach the end of my journey. I'll continue until I can. :)

Cheers to a healthier and better eating habit, and to more active lifestyle. :D

Hooray for the better me! :)

P.S. I told you this is shallow post. But I really hope some people will be proud of my sort-of achievements in the past weeks. :)

Idol Mo Ba Si Popoy?

Has everyone seen John Lloyd-Bea's One More Chance?

If you haven't, watch it first before reading on. :)

I got this from here.

When it comes to classic break-up movies, Cathy Garcia-Molina‘s One More Chance is a tough act to follow. Because when it comes to onscreen break-ups, Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) and Basha (Bea Alonzo) have it locked down.
Especially when there are 10 solid reasons kung ba’t idol ng mga lalake si Popoy.

1. He suffers through the worst break up ever.
In One More Chance’s classic break-up scene, Popoy discovers that Basha’s car has broken down. And when he bails on a delicious Italian dinner to go pick her up, she breaks up with him.
Susunduin mo nga lang yung girlfriend mo brineakan ka pa. Bitch, you crazy.

2. Hindi siya nahihiya mag-breakdown.
After Basha breaks up with him, Popoy literally breaks down. Everywhere. In his bedroom. In his office. In the bar. Most men just breakdown at home. But Popoy takes it to the next level:everywhere.
3. Dahil ang tunay na lalake, walang abs.
In one of the final moments of Popoy and Basha’s relationship, they go for some last minute hanky panky. But as soon as Popoy throws off his shirt for some bedside manliness, we see that he isn’t the chiseled leading man we thought him to be. Kaya pala hindi pa siya nagco-cover ng Men’s Health.
But why get abs when you’ve got talent?
4. He gets both Bea Alonzo and Maja Salvador.
Even if Basha breaks up with you; there’s always Trisha (Maja Salvador). Last time I checked, she wasn’t too bad herself.
5. And what–if niya si Nikki Gil.
If you’ve got a bestfriend like Helen (Nikki Gil), then you really have nothing to worry about. Popoy’s got options. Lots of them.
6. At natataob pa rin niya si Derek Ramsay.
When Basha brings Mark (Derek Ramsay) to dinner with friends, you have to wonder if there’s something between the two. Because last time I checked, women don’t invite Derek Ramsayto dinner for his table manners.
But then again, Popoy uses his sheer lack of abs to woo Basha back. It takes two years, but hey, true love can wait.
7. Mumurahin ni Popoy yung ex-girlfriend niya at walang aangal.
Everyone has their own favorite lines from One More Chance. But one line trumps them all:
“Putangina naman Bash. Ganyan ka ba katigas?”
Because nothing feels better than telling an ex to fuck-off. And because last time ko ginawa ‘yun, binugbog ako ng mga kabarkado ko. Bros before hoes ‘yo!
8. He buys a new car with his ex-girlfriends money.
It’s hinted that Popoy and Basha had started a joint savings account while they were together. Suddenly, after the break-up, Popoy buys a new car. For himself.  Basha may not be able to afford Popoy’s broken heart, but she can sure as hell pay for his new ride.
9. He picks up his girlfriend and ex-girlfriend ON THE SAME TRIP.
There are easier ways to parade your hot new girlfriend, like say, changing your facebook profile to a really cheesy couple pic. Or tagging your ex with nude pics of your new girlfriend (that’s what I used to do).
But Popoy doesn’t need facebook. When he rescues Basha from the rain, he makes sure that Trisha is there to see how stupid she looks when he does. 
10. And he ends up with Anne Curtis.
At ‘yan ang tunay na lalake.

Commercials, Etc.

When I was reading Patty's blog, I had a good laugh watching some of McDonald's funny commercials.

So, I decided to search for more. :)

A Rejoice commercial. :)

There's a twist in the end. Hahaha! :)

Don't know if this was actually shown. Hahaha!

Care to share any links that can make me smile? :)

Journey to 120

Kakahiya to admit, I was 143.5 lbs., two weeks ago.

Now I value how hard work pays off.

After 13 days, lost 5 lbs. already.

Slowly but surely, para di naman magulantang ang mundo ko. 


Still striving. Kaya ko 'to!

Any tips for my "Journey to 120"? :)

Counting the Days

15 more days to go...

Should I be excited or scared?

My Other Woman

Saw the full trailer's link through my best friend's FB.

Interesting story. Great cast.

QUOTABLE QUOTE from Carmi Martin:

Ang mundo ay isang malaking Quiapo. Madaming snatcher. Maagawan ka! Lumaban ka!

PAK! :)

Will you be watching this movie? :)

I will, definitely!

Who Can Read Maps? :)

Sharing with you our adventures at Eden Nature Park, in Davao.

We had so many map-reading photos, that I cannot resist to share. Hahaha!

Ayan, even the boys don't know which way to go
The girls to the rescue! :)
All smiles when we reached the disappointing Matinlo Falls
J: You need help figuring out the map?

Wow! Does it look like X is consulting me? Hahaha!

Are you lost now?

X: Hmmm, I should've listened to R.
X: Sabi dito left.
G: Hindi, dapat right.
X: Sige na nga, right.
G: Left na lang, kasi sabi ni Weng, right.
X: (laughing)
Can we please take a vote?
Who can read maps better, girls or guys? Hahaha! :)

*I still can't stop smiling whenever I check out these pictures. :p

Davao Wow

My friends, the boyfriend and I went to Davao the other week.

Before the said trip, we realized that we were ALL booked in for a package with our chosen hotel (Clue: Initials - C.R.).

I was fuming mad already when I was talking with the reservations officer the day before our flight.

Good thing that the 'ending' of our discussion was different from what we experienced with their branch in Cebu two years ago.

The results: The five of us got upgrade to a family suite. And since only the four of us were included in the package (from Metrodeal), the 5th person was already free of charge. :)

Ok, scratch the bad vibes!

What I enjoyed most from our Davao trip was our water-tubing. Picture whitewater rafting, but instead of a boat, you're alone seated in a salbabida. It was FUN! Really!

*FYI, I was the one who got fell from the lifesaver. Hahaha!

Let me share more pictures for you to 'enjoy' our Davao trip as well. :)
With the caterpillars at the Butterfly House

Yummy yummy gelato for dessert at Crepelato
Php120 for this one, 2 scoops of super sarap gelato!

Such a cute couple, aren't they? :)

We had lots of 'map-reading' sessions during our Mountain Trail
@Eden Nature Park
The habal-habal ride.
No, this is not a photo-op.
We were moving when Al took this photo.
Those are BATS!
I won't be surprised if Batman surfaced from the cave. Hahaha!

We also visited The Crocodile Farm. Malagos Resort/Park, where the Philippine Eagles are seen. Mt.Samal.

I was a bit disappointed with Mt.Samal. It was just the slide. Period. Nothing to do much there, IMO. That's why we decided to rent a habal-habal, which was Php300-350 each per hour. Ouch! The journey going to the bat cave and falls are quite exciting and scary at the same time. You really will be holding on for your dear life. Hahaha!

How about you, have you been to Davao? What other places can you recommend that we visit? :)

5 Things I'm Thankful For #24

I apologize for being MIA in the past couple of weeks.

Life's been crazy. The craziest was last week. I don't want to explore on that though.

Back to my subject.

Do I have things to be thankful for? I know there's a lot, but really can't think of anything specific as of the moment.

So, this list may be a bit dull, or too obvious. I don't know.

1. A bright morning. Thank you for giving me another day to enjoy life. Since last week, I feel so giddy when I wake up. Why? It's how I fine-tuned myself. Positive thinking. Every time I wake up, it's one day less of my 'deadline'.

2. CashCashPinoy. They have this referral program. I have 'referred' all members of our household already, because I have purchased cheap-thrills from this group-buying site. The result? I have purchased a lot, yes. I have earned Php700 referral bonus as well. Woohoo! :)

3. National Bookstore. Indeed it is THE National Bookstore. I love visiting the NB Best Sellers in Galleria, it seems they've got it all (Yes, I know they don't but with the big space and unending book shelves, it sure feels like heaven). I now consider NBS as my go-to place when I'm down. No more munching on some chips, or finishing a cup of sundae. This is now my dessert. :)

4. J. For being there, as always. Thank you.

5. X. For again making me realize that I need to do something about myself (for myself). I know this realization struck me (for the 2nd time) the hard way, but I am now creating a plan. You just wait. :)

Sorry for just blabbing my way to my #5. I just felt like I needed to write, to express how I feel.

But somehow, I hope this inspires you to create a list of your own as well. Through your blog, or by writing it down in a piece of paper, or simply by "Thank you".

Have a happy Tuesday everyone! :)
