20-minute exercise

It's been a while since I posted a topic about fitness. Last week, I enrolled in a swimming class, yoga, pilates and zumba. I know I'm crazy! I spent all my money there, now I'm broke! LOL! Yesterday I trained my friend Leah how to swim. I taught her freestyle and breast stroke. She got it real quick, she's a fast learner! She told me that she will swim everyday starting tomorrow morning. I'm happy coz I see her dedication and she's eager to learn more! 

Anyhow, I want to share this 20-minute exercise. It's so easy, I got it from Domestic Mama. I've been doing this exercise since March. Like every morning when I wake up I would set up my mat and do this. I sweat like a pig on my first 3 days but when I get used to it, whew! So easy! :) Please try to do it too, it's just a mini-exercise, short and easy, so please no more excuses! As Nike says, "Just do it!"

R.I.P to the girl you used to see

“R.I.P, to the girl you used to see

Her days are over, baby she’s over
I decided to give you all of me
Baby come closer, baby come closer”

Manila Target Shooting Range "MSR"

I love watching CSI, NCIS and Mentalist coz I'm curious how a criminal mind works. I read articles about worst serial killers in history like Ted Bundy, Ed Gein etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm not getting any pleasure from those gruesome details, I'm just curious why or how they did it. If ever I encounter one, I will just shot him in the head, no more talking. *Bang bang!* You're dead... Just kidding! I'm not a gun owner but I'm curious how to shoot, so my bestfriend and I went to MSR (Manila Target Shooting Range) to learn gun firing.

My mirror staring back at me

Justin Timberlake's song, "Mirrors" is dedicated to his wife, Jessica Biel. He said on an interview, “‘Mirrors’ is a love song to someone that you feel like is, you know, sort of your other half. One of the most valuable things in a relationship is being able to constantly change and be individual, but look to the other side to the person that you’re with and and know that they’re changing as well individually, but somehow you two can mirror each other and be the other half of that world that you both create.”

Wakeboarding at CWC (Camsur Watersports Complex)

Wakeboarding was developed by surfers from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing techniques. They did this as a way to have fun on days when there were low waves. Smart idea right?! They said it can burn 350 calories per hour and also tones up arm, leg, abdominal and back muscles.

Taal Volcano Guide

Taal volcano, "an island within a lake", that's what its called according to our tour guide. It's the smallest active volcano in the world and second most active volcano in the Philippines (with 33 historical eruptions). It's advisable to go there early in the morning like 6 or 7 because it gets too hot from 10am-3pm. I've been there twice and got sunburned on my first trek coz we got there around 10am. On my 2nd time, I learned my lesson so we got there early.

Don´t you worry child, see heaven´s got a plan for you

Swedish House Mafia's song, "Don't You Worry Child" was very consistent on the top 40 list of Ryan Seacrest's site. I like this song because of the message and the rhythm, makes you wanna dance and get LSS. "Those days are gone, and now the memories are on the wall". I think this line were in the thoughts of a young man looking at his family pictures on the wall. He's reminiscing how simple and good childhood can be.

Amazing Grace

It's been a week since I was in the province for my grandpa's wake. I'd like to share a video of my second cousin, Ingrid, playing a recorder. On top of that, I also want to share a poem that changed my outlook in life. I found this amazing poem in my grandparent's restroom door, it's called "WHAT WILL MATTER" by Michael Josephson".

Sonya's Garden Review

My mom and her churchmates like Sonya's garden so much that they go there whenever they have an outing or reunion. She keeps on telling me how beautiful their garden is and how much she wants to get the plants there. (She has different variety of plants in our rooftop which I wanted to sell online. JK ma!) :-p

Jet Lag

You say good morning
When it's midnight
Going out of my head
Alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
And it's driving me mad
I miss you so bad
And my heart, heart, heart is so jet-lagged
Heart, heart, heart is so jet-lagged

Jet Lag by Simple Plan, is about a couple who are madly in love with each other but they live on different sides of the world. It's hard for them to keep in contact because of time zone difference, so their hearts were jet-lagged.

Wall Climbing at Power Up Centro Atletico

If you're thinking of strenuous activity that involves legs and arms work out, this activity is perfect for you. Last weekend my colleagues and I went to Cubao, Quezon City to try out the indoor wall climbing. At first I was thinking, "Oh, this is cheese balls! I'll be bored later." Then after reading the standard procedures and climbing signals, I was like, "Uh oh! Information overload! Do I really have to memorize all this?!"

Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe

After a successful attempt on making the No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake, my cousins and I decided to make a fluffy blueberry cheesecake. I already have all the ingredients in the fridge, so all we gotta do is to mix everything and chill it. It's cold and creamy -perfect for summer!
