Workout and Line Cutters

I wanted to kick off the week to a good start.  Thankfully, work cooperated with my goal as much as it possibly can.  I do not expect the same results tomorrow — a girl cannot possibly be that lucky — so I said to myself, I’ll go to 360 Fitness four times this week.

Is it a death sentence?  I’ll let you know.

I was supposed to do four/five rounds, but I started to feel pain along my right shin.  Then between pushups and Kettlebells, I felt the strong urge to pee.  Hahahaha.  I just laughed my ass off.  I ended up doing the usual three rounds.  Maybe tomorrow would be a better day.

I am aiming to hold a raised plank next time.  I still do the usual one, with the bent elbows, but I’ve been eating right and been moving right for the past two weeks.  I’m hoping that shows a little bit of improvement.

Line cutters, on the other hand, annoy me.  After a workout, I usually grab the shuttle near Ayala MRT station.  The line was unbelievably long, and it took a while before it was our turn.  Right before boarding, this couple paid for their fare.  Just when we were about to board, they just went ahead of everyone!  Mind you there were about 50 people waiting in line!

I don’t know where my guts went.  I so wanted to freak out and call them out for cutting the line.  I didn’t say anything.  I felt so responsible for the two seats stolen from the two people behind me.  Damn it.

I hate people who have a wrong sense of entitlement.  Really.  Why is it so hard for people to wait in line?  Whatever happened to eliminating the wang wang mentality?  Ugh, that’s a completely separate discussion already.

Next time, I intend to bring my balls.  *bow*


Batangas 2011

The last time we went to Batangas was the first time I took Dylan.  They made him plant a tree.  Hahahahaha.  I loved that time.

Unfortunately, due to domestic responsibilities, he wasn’t able to go this year.  I wasn’t feeling the visit too, so I packed a good deal of reading with me.  I think I read the entire day.  I felt a bit bad for not participating, but I wasn’t in the mood to be all environmental.  I did love the food though.

I just love the books I brought with me.  I highly recommend The Perks of Being A Wallflower.  Review to follow.  :)

And here are the things I experienced in Batangas this year. Continue reading

Welcome To McArthur Park

So for a moment there, it sounded like a line right off the karaoke machine.  Hahaha.

Anyway, I was again on a trip for our department’s roadshow.  We headed for Tacloban a week ago, and AB and I were the first team to get there.  The first place we hit was McArthur’s Landing, or otherwise known as McArthur Park.  It’s basically the place where McArthur came back during the World War II.

The first thing I noticed was the sky.  Already I noticed it as we started to descend.

Can you honestly say that we have skies this blue in the city?  Little by little, it sinks in why people love to retire in the province.

So ladies and gentlemen, welcome to McArthur Park.  *insert possible theme song here*

See they really transformed it into a park.  Those benches at the far right had a pretty good view.  Just before I took this photo, a family was wrapping up their lunch picnic.

I envy places like these.  It’s a complete getaway from the hurried life of the city, of work!  Some say we can easily convert Luneta Park into something like this.  But I don’t know.  A lot of effort already went into cleaning that place up, but the people seem to find it so hard to just be aware of keeping the place clean and presentable to tourists and residents alike.  Oh well.

I would give anything to have this view everyday.

Next post:  The San Juanico Bridge! :)

Dante Barona FTW!

For the past few days, I was in Tacloban with our marketing crew for another RMC visit.  San Juanico Bridge is such a wonder and it was just right there.  Kuya Joel made sure that we get a picture at the spot where Dante Barona jumped off as a stunt a few decades ago! :)

That’s me with AB, my right hand and left leg.  Yes, I cannot function without her.  Hahahahaha.

More photos coming soon!
