Positive Reinforcement

September 27, 2013

It doesn’t help that the result of my latest pre-employment medical exam states that I am overweight. The numerous gyms where I subscribed and inquired to did not mention anything like that even when they were eager to make sales. At 24.6 BMI (max), I am at a normal range. I really cannot understand how […]

As Random As I Can Get

September 25, 2013

Can’t I really find myself into dieting? I am excited to sweat out all fats on the gym. In fact, my body is “craving” for yoga now that I’d like to research anti-gravity yoga classes or even Plana Forma. I want to feel my muscles ache because of the exercises I do. But dieting, really? […]

Traffic Hell

September 13, 2013

I don’t know why some people objected but traffic alone, in itself, is hell on Metro Manila. We learned to live on cities when driving/commuting is at a speed of 10kph during rush hours. I hope the people of authority (LGU, MMDA, DPWH) know that Ortigas Avenue Extension is a hell of a road for thousands of […]

A Call to “Public”: Be the Change

September 10, 2013

Maybe I am just trying to open up myself to more people the way I normally don’t. But I think of joining Hands on Manila (http://www.handsonmanila.org.ph/volunteerprograms/activities), an organization which utilizes the power of volunteerism from people willing to help others. Beneficiaries are usually schoolchildren, senior citizens and mothers or even the environment by people who […]

Typhoon Maring once again awakened the […]
