It takes me all the way, I want you to stay

Overplayed song in Manila radio stations: "Stay" by Rihanna featuring Mikky Echo. I like this song because of the story. In Rihanna's interview with the Examiner, she said "Stay is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with." We all know the beating issue but she still forgave him and now they're back together. I think she learned her lesson. She's stronger now and won't be a victim anymore.

Mixed Martial Arts (Hybrid Yaw-Yan Cubao)

Yaw-Yan, also called Sayaw ng Kamatayan or "Dance of Death" is a Filipino hybrid style of kickboxing developed by Napoleon Fernandez. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has dominated the kickboxing scene in the Philippines and has proven very effective against other stand-up fighting arts. (Wikipedia)

I joined Hybrid Yaw-Yan last 2010 in order to defend myself from bad people. I'm not an expert or anything but I pretty much learn everything from Sir Henry Kobayashi (CEO/trainer). I always sweat like a pig in all his warm up exercises. Imagine, it's just a warm-up exercise, what more if I finish the whole session? (without cheating of course!) I love mits training with Sir Henry because it's stress relieving. Like if I'm angry, I hit the mits harder. Seriously, it helps. ;)

DIY floral shorts

I've been seeing a lot of floral-inspired clothes lately so I decided to make my own version. I wore this shorts in my outfit post yesterday and got so many likes on facebook and instagram. My older sister got inspired with this project, so she drove to the nearest trading store and purchased some materials. Tomorrow I will help out my baby cousin Nica to bleach her denim shorts and make ombre-dyed shorts(click here for the DIY). Just like what I promised in my previous post, here's the tutorial for it! <3

Materials you need:

old denim shorts (bleached and dyed to your preferred color)
pencil marker
sewing thread
floral fabric

I think I’d have a heart attack

Overplayed song of the week: "Heart Attack" by Demi Lovato. I've been hearing it on different radio stations here in Manila and been trying to analyze it. I thought the song was about a girl trying so hard to impress a guy and she ended up not being herself so she messed up the whole thing. I watched the music video and realized that my analysis was wrong! LOL! On her interview with Perez Hilton, she said “I think everybody's been in a situation where they've been hurt several times. They feel vulnerable...There's been times where you've been hurt. When you have to open up your heart to somebody, it's a risk. This song is about taking that risk and the feelings that come from it."

The Paleo Diet

I learned about Paleo diet 2 months ago where in you have to limit yourself from eating dairy products like butter, cheese, milk etc. Processed foods and processed sugars are a no-no. Legumes, starches and alcohol. Yup I no longer drink alcohol and I have no plans drinking any time soon. When I see alcohol now, I just want to puke. Seriously! Paleo diet will change your life.

So what is Paleo diet? A pyramid illustration from fitbomb will do the explanation.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

Every time I hear "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson, it just makes me wanna sing it out loud. This song is about being fierce after ending a relationship. Some of you might think that you'll be lost without your partner, where in fact you are actually stronger and better off without him. Kelly sings the song loudly and repeatedly to convince herself that she'll be fine alone. She made it clear that "being alone doesn't mean your lonely."

I don't know about you but im feeling 22

Taylor Swift in blue & white striped dress

This song of Taylor is so catchy. It reminds me of my twin cousins who are turning 22 this November. Swift told Billboard magazine: "For me, being 22 has been my favorite year of my life. I like all the possibilities of how you're still learning, but you know enough. You still know nothing, but you know that you know nothing. You're old enough to start planning your life, but you're young enough to know there are so many unanswered questions. That brings about a carefree feeling that is sort of based on indecision and fear and a the same time letting lose. Being 22 has taught me so much."

No bake Strawberry Ice box cake

I was supposed to bake a cake but I decided to make an easier version. Ice box cake! This is very easy, even kids can do it. All you gotta do is to layer & freeze! No baking required! It's like a cheaper version of strawberry shortcake with chocolate ganache on top, isn't that perfect?!

Hopper -the hyper dog

Hi I'm Hopper! I'm 2 months old mini pinscher. I like to hop like a baby kangaroo. The first time I entered mommy KT's house, I hopped crazily instead of walking. I did this to impress her, Meryl(my 1st mom) and Shalom (her sister). They all laughed when I did that, so that's how I got my name, "Hopper". I think it fits me well because if you look closely, my face is really like a baby kangaroo. But of course, I'm more handsome than them. Teeeeheee!!! 

Here are some of my photos taken by mom:
I'm a big dog in a small dog's body.

Boracay baby!

I love going to the beach! Who doesn't right?! The warm breeze of the ocean makes me feel relaxed, I get to sip fresh coconut juice, get a tan and people watch! Yeah I love people watching, especially when I see cute guys with abs!      Nyahaha! Of course I wear sunglasses so that they can't tell what I'm looking at. (I got that tip from watching too much CSI Miami. :p) Anyways, they held a contest in our office and the person who gets to close more deals within a time period gets the prize. 2 round-trip tickets from Manila to Boracay, hotel accommodation and pocket money. Guess what?! I'm the lucky bastard! Wooohoooo! I'm going to bring my mom with me and my brother might join us.

Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own

All my fashion category will be from one line of a song. Today I feel like listening to "Daylight by Maroon 5" while typing this article post, so I came up with the title "Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own". I think the song is about a long-distance relationship. They were saying goodbye to each other but don't want to end it. (So full of drama! My golly! Hahaha!) Anyhow I like that song because a radio DJ in Manila asked Adam Levine what song in his album ' 'Overexposed' would he dedicate to his Filipina fans and he answered, "Daylight. It’s my favorite song in the album and it’s a very inspirational song. I love it very much." (teehee!!! Adam you are so talented, I will pinch your cheeks!)

DIY Ombre shorts

"Ombre" is a french term meaning shaded or shading. It was a trend last year and I saw a lot of celebrities or fashion bloggers with ombre-dyed hair. Now that it's summer time I'm seeing a lot of girls wearing ombre-dyed shorts so, I decided to make my own.  It's easy making them but it's time-consuming.

Halo-halo recipe

It's summer time once again! That means higher electricity bill and halo-halo season. Is there such thing? Okay I made that up! Halo-halo is a Filipino mixed-fruit dessert that is usually eaten during the summer season. (March-May) You will see a lot of halo-halo stands in every street corner. It's like a counterpart of lemonade stands in the US.

How to have a flat tummy?

Okay the title of this article is a little exaggerated. I don't really have a flat tummy but I try to have at least 4-pack. I think 6-pack is way too much. I'm not an expert or anything but I'll share to you some tips that I do that works for me. It is always best to consult your physician before starting any exercises or diet.

Here are some easy steps that I do:

Hello cyber buddies!

New blog at last! I've been blogging since 2011 but I deleted it because it's like an online diary that is too personal. Yeah like top secret! Bwahaha! Anyhow, on this blog I will write about art crafts, food, travel, fitness, and fashion. Basically anything that interest me. This blog is will be updated once or twice a week (okay! Maybe daily if I'm inspired enough to write stuff).

Today is Sunday so I'm going to share something about my favorite bible verse. Jeremiah 29:11
