Today I ran outside and it felt awesome. The truth of it is it has been 21 months since the last time I did anything outside. We have a couple of seniors in the house and one has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease from a lifetime of smoking. So when the Pandemic hit, we had to... Continue Reading →

My Wellness Journey Talk
Last Saturday, I was invited at the Lifescience Wellness Center to do a short talk on my wellness journey. Although there were only a handful of people who attended, it felt great to spread the word and hopefully inspire them to be healthy. I tried to make the talk fun and relatable. I simplified the...

My Latest HBA1C Result
My first HBA1C reading in January was 7.10. That’s when my doctor told me that I have Diabetes. Determined to fuck the hell out of this disease, I did a complete lifestyle change — diet, exercise, and mindset. Last May, I had it tested again. The result of the second test was 6.10. It’s significantly... Continue Reading →
Fuck You Diabetes
Original post from my Bisikleta.ph bike blog So I was diagnosed with diabetes by my heart doctor a few weeks ago. It was a wake up call. My past two annual executive check ups indicate that my numbers were pre-diabetic. The doctor warned me that I should diet and exercise more often, But I didn't... Continue Reading →
The Mac VGA adapter Lender
Yesterday late afternoon, a stranger approached me. She introduced herself and told me that she's from one of the TV Production units. They're going to present to one of company's top executives in a few minutes and they don't have a Mac VGA adapter. She's asking if she can borrow mine. She seemed to look... Continue Reading →
What I would say to some officemates
Be (at least) on time for meetings, especially if you are the chair. Let us out of the elevator first before you attempt to go in. Do not pee on the toilet seat. Lift it up first. Flush after using.
Kung matanda na ako, tanggapin ko sana na may mga bagay na hindi ko na kayang gawin at matuto akong humingi ng tulong para sa mga ito.
It's 2014 and we're not dead yet. I think that calls for a celebration.As we start, I'm decided that this will be the year when I lose a lot of weight and embrace a healthier lifestyle. I proved that I can do it with my #deliciousbydecember campaign, which saw me lose 18 pounds before my... Continue Reading →
The fruits of one’s labor
I just saw a video of Domeng's son graduating from De La Salle University with a Master's Degree in Mathematics. Even if he's from a rival school, I can't help but be proud with the accomplishment of both the person who went up the stage and the two individuals who worked terribly hard to see...

Learnings about Time
Note to self: 1. When someone says 10-ish, that's a range from 10:00 to 10:59. 2. Sometimes, when someone says that they'll be finished by 9:00, it's just a suggested time.
Turning Thirty Five
I can't believe I'm turning 35 this month. It doesn't seem like I've been living in this world for that long. I think I would need a long ride soon to celebrate life.
Killing me softly
On a flight back to Manila after a five-day adventure in Beijing. Even though I'm sleepy, I'm having a hard time sleeping as the leg room and everything else in this flight is really cramped. So I just decided to write this entry and post it once I land, or at least get a decent... Continue Reading →
The Obsessive-Compulsive Me
I guess I am a bit obsessive-compulsive when it comes to making the house neat and tidy. It's already 1:33 in the morning and I can't stop myself from doing a quick sweep of the floor, changing the sheets, washing the dishes and putting things where they belong. I think tomorrow I'll wash the rest... Continue Reading →
I'm currently having lunch here at Burger King SM City Marikina. I went to two NBI kiosks already to have my NBI clearance renewed but the lines were just too fucking long. The first one was in SM Megamall. The kiosk was stationed at the basement level but the line goes all the way up... Continue Reading →
