105 pounds is my pre-pregnancy weight. That was in 2005. Now i am making a personal mission to get back to my old shape and weight.

It is not easy, though. Richard and i enrolled in Slimmer’s World in Festival Mall, Alabang last August because we are both getting fat. Prior to this, we don’t really engage too much in physical activities, as we are always glued to our own laptops. If typing is a sport, we’d be pro. Anyways, because of our weight concern, we are now like, gym rats. We’d spend every other evenings in the gym for 2 hours (atleast). We have also been counting calories! lolz. and we check each other’s meals. Food intake has decreased significantly as far as carbohydrates is concerned. it’s not easy, but we gotta do what we gotta do.

will i make it to 105 pounds?

the journey begins.

hi! i don’t have that much readers so im sure only a few people missed me (lolz). a LOT of things happened since my last post, which was the end of the 1st quarter. i didn’t have the energy and time to post.

i love my Dad but i just can’t get myself to write about his recent death. sometimes i refuse to entertain thoughts of him especially during his last few months with us. there are mixed emotions. but God knows i miss him and i love him so much.

will post again later.

I have told you from my previous post that i enjoy listening to The Morning Rush by Chico & Del every Mondays thru Fridays, at 6-9am. And about a few months back, i started frequency surfing every morning at about the same time as Chico & Del’s radio show to Magic 89.9’s Good times with Mo (and Mojo jojo / Grace Lee). Sometimes, i wouldn’t even realize that i have been listening more to Good Times than the Morning Rush. Hehehe… medyo balimbing ako sa dalawang show na to on radio. Ang talagang inaabangan ko lang naman ksi sa morning rush is yung Top 10 nila (where listeners will text in their entries to their topic of the day) and yung News at 17. Yung Good times kasi, they give extravagant prizes. Like they give laptops like candies! Or a few thousand worth of GC’s. Or floor or VIP tickets to Maroon 5 / Incubus / Beyonce concerts. Nakakatuwa din yung mga games nila kasi kakaiba. Like yung YABANG MO! where you will kiss Mo’s ass for a minute. If Mo thinks you’re a good ass kisser, he will give you a really cool prize. Basta masaya. And just today, i stumbled upon PinoyExchange a thread about Tado, Erning (AKA Angel) and Ramon Bautista’s new radio show! (new, atleast for me). I missed their Strangebrew days which aired at UNTV back in the old days and i’m so happy to know that they have their own radio show! I’ve been listening just now and sobrang laughtrip talaga. I am not really sure if their humor is for everybody but i’ve been a fan of them eversince kaya parang part na ko ng kulto nila hahahahaha…. basta, kung lafftrip with a combination of intelligent discussions for the  illiterate (LOLZ) (as what they always say) ang hanap mo, ito ang radio show para sa inyo. Masaya. Brewster airs at 99.5 Hit FM Mondays thru Thursdays, 9pm – 12mn.

You can already tell na i’m a “more talk less music” type of a person, no?

I am an avid listener of RX 93.1’s Morning Rush (by Chico and Del) for years now and have been enjoying their TOP 10 (whatevers) and have personally liked the one i’m going to share with you below as this cracked me up while driving my way to work (some drivers might have thought i’m crazy because i’m laughing my ass off alone in the car!).

i am having a heath aftermath.

i have been searching every video and music store for a DVD copy of “Brokeback Mountain” (which i haven’t seen yet) and lahat sila, walang stock!. i’ve been reading about heath’s awesome acting here and i wanna see it. Richard didn’t want to watch it when it was shown here back in 2006 (?) coz it’s a “gay movie” daw. but anyways, i still want to see it.

hanggang ngayon nalulungkot pa din ako. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh…. ang daming tributes honoring him as a great actor, i never realized na he was very respected by his co-actors and directors and actually everyone who had the chance to have worked with him.

anyways, if anyone can direct me to anyone who knows where i can buy an original dvd of Brokeback (in the Philippines), it will be greatly appreciated.

while sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Now, while doing this, draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction and there’s nothing you can do about it.

promise.

heath.jpgThis is the only hollywood death that really affected me so much. I loved him in 10 things i hate about you and A knight’s tale, and i am super excited to see him play as The Joker in the upcoming film The Dark Knight. Until now i still can’t believe that one of my favorite hollywood actor is dead. Call me shallow i don’t care. I believe he’s one of the few actors who has really shown depth in acting. I mean when he acts, he’s really into his character. That’s what probably caused his death. I mean he had trouble sleeping after filming “I’m not there” and “The Dark Knight” coz those characters are, according to Heath, “very stressful”. What’s all the more tragic is his death might be accidental drug overdose. Haaaayyyy kawawa naman her beautiful 2 year old kid, Matilda.

May he rest in peace.
