De-Cluttering People

Image
And I am back in online world! After a few days of hiding in the real world here I am now once again making waves in the so-called social media world of almost all of the people.

And  I have this intention of slowing it down. And by the way I have my three-day seminar last week about Conflict Management in Manila.  But before that I have decided to make this FOCUS project. It is a project to bring my life back to reality. To de-clutter my thoughts. To get in touch once again to my senses. To make sense of it all again.

And I am making progress really. I have tried to curb down my posting in facebook and some blogs of mine. Even in this blogspot. However I have to buried myself in some things really worth doing of my time. Reading. Cleaning of my room. Clearing out of my mind of what is really important. Right now. Right this very now!

So far so good. I have good signs of improving my life by not really paying attention to those "cluttering" areas of my everyday life. Just fo…

"Balik-balikan"

Image
There are places, persons and food in which we always remember..we find time to get back..and taste those good memories..and these are one of them..tortang talong from Ineng's and BBQ from Ineng's too..and ramen from Rairaiken..

Equally on the equation, there are experiences that we do not want to be remembered. Those times of personal sorrows, of grief, of being fooled, of being so naive and especially used by people whom we trusted us normal and good.







Back To Jogging

Image
That feeling of acceleration..of being lightweight..and running..
Last night I have told my nephews that we will be jogging this morning. And so Bambe called me at around 5 am to confirm if the routine will go through. And we go. At around 6 we were at the SM parking area and started to jog and walk and run..the usual.

Sometimes it was hard to start all over again after months or year without jogging..though my joints were not aching I can feel some uneasiness within my system. But eventually it went on that rhythmic cycle and I was back on track again.

For the biggest loser challenge? partly but mainly for my own health regardless of with contest or not.

Happy jogging everyone! and I posted it on my daily mile account!

Impulse/Urge

Just about last night..with my office-mates and friends from our service vehicle and we ate at Wanam Restaurant the one near SM-Batangas..Guisado pansit for the rest of us and lomi for Sonny ( maiba naman daw)..and lastly we had our siomai and squidball session at the Cafe Kampanaryo ( the small stall at the side of Trinity Church)..

Not so distant ago we were as happy as with other officemates in our service. However due to individual differences some went away and transferred to other vehicles. It was their choice. I do not care if they do such thing as long as I have done nothing wrong and mostly they were the one who have sinned more against me and the others. And eventually their leaving turned out to be for the best of us. We felt some relief upon knowing that those three who are not so good in attitude will finally go out. And those f*cking three had transferred to other vehicle together. Maybe they have this bond ( well they have common traits, which is the talk of the town e…

In Two Days ( Many Has Happened)

Image
I have watched this afternoon the movie "The Conjuring" and as of now it is the most horrifying movie I have seen in years! One of the best films I have seen this year. The effects, the sounds, the storyline, everything just conspired to wake up our sense of fear. And dark imagination. Some students whom I have seated in row had screamed so hard that they almost break the chair. Do not watch it alone!

In two days so many things has changed. Has happened. On the good news I have lose two kilograms upon weighing last Monday! And my blood pressure is stabilizing and in five years I have a 130/80 reading. Wow! It called for a celebration. And ironically to celebrate it I ate pansit guisado at MGM ( with Sonny).

And the rain does not stop until this morning. The hard hit Manila is still submerged in water. Prayers and donations for them. And almost I am sleep all day until I go to SM this afternoon and watch The Conjuring. I have seen my cousin Carlo who has been in Canada for y…

Ang Dami Kong Kilalang Napoles

Blame it all on Napoles. Napoles now is synonymous to corruption. Thanks to social media. Different internet memes are around from "SSS remittance, Napoles, Phillhealth..", imagine pati sa bayarin Napoles na ang tawag kasi yung tax natin sa kanila napupunta..there is also this photo of a crocodile ( symbol of corruption-being lifted by people out of the blood -kasi nahuli na daw si Napoles hahaha)..Nyeta kayong lahat!

But on the second thought Napoles does not exist only in government. Even in private organizations. Even just around. Want some names?

You know them already!

Icons

Image
Some of the icons of my generation..Cobain..Princess Diana, Bernanke, Monroe..they defined my generation..people who made the difference in their own way..their mere existence impacted more than mine but millions of people around..







Be Safe Everyone

Image
This morning the rain has never stopped even up to now..part of Manila and Laguna and Cavite are submerged into waist-deep rainwater..be safe everyone and pray that rain will stop eventually..

Can't Resist

Image
Yesterday supposedly I will not go out to SM..but my mind and stomach was craving for those foods..given the fact that this Monday ( today) we will be having our second weigh-in  for the Biggest Loser Challenge, still I cannot resist the food..first stop was at the supermarket with those special goto, tokwat baboy and lumpia which was known as pares-pares..then after watching Ekstra ( oh still I am a Vilmanian hahaha!) I ate at the newly opened Rairaiken Ramen House and Sushi Bar in SM-Batangas..I've got with me a hot pot seafood ramen and california maki with red iced tea..and because of that I am not expecting a drop in my weight now..or most probably a gain in my weight unfortunately..just be ready for the elimination on the September weigh-in..

Roll The Dice! Roll What? My Diploma?

Image
Last Saturday finally I've got my MBA diploma. And it was so big that I should roll it. How can I laminate it? How can I bring it whenever I have my job application? Better reduce it now.


Happy Birthday Ate Arlyn

Image
Last Saturday..my Ate is ten years older than me..And I am six years more than my first three decades. Do the math please hahaha!!

So how can I drop my weight? huh?



Cheating Friday

Image
And I was cheating again on Friday. Eating what I want. And for that day I had with me a Chickenjoy. Actually two chickens. Tasted so good! So delicious!

And today is the second weigh-in and I am not expecting a drop in my weight. Better luck next time. I do not want to starve!

Make It Happen Now

Image
I can open the door or just climb up the ladder, either way I am going somewhere. That's the motto now. If I have the chance I will grab it. If it is indeed good for me then I will get it. No other way but up. Sometimes the most decisive moments come when you are really on it. When your heart is actually craving for a change. For something new to happen. Then make it happen.

Now!
