I’ve been joining fun runs for seven months now and 10k has been the greatest physical challenge for me so far. But that changed last Saturday. Last weekend, I joined the first vertical marathon in the Philippines, an indoor running event done on stairs. It was a new experience and it was indeed challenging. I enjoyed it nonetheless! Pretty fulfilling!

Personal best! Well, everyone who participated last Saturday set their own personal record being the first of its kind challenge. I’m so proud being part of it.
By the way, thank you to Skechers Philippines for the free slot! I hope to win more race kits next year.

Breaking news! I don’t usually post stuff like this here but I think it’s worth sharing!
After the infamous dancing inmates from Cebu (Philippines), we now have dancing Flight Attendants on Cebu Pacific!!! Stream the video below to see the girls bop to Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” and Katy Perry’s “California Gurls”.
Aren’t we, Filipinos, talented? Cool, eh?
While this is such a creative way of giving flight instructions, this is also a proof that the Philippine airline industry has yet to cope with the international standards. I believe they don’t do this anymore in other big airlines. I wonder, though, if this is within the regulations of Air Transportation Office? But anyway, this is so effing cool. Good idea. Very entertaining. I bet all passengers paid attention to them and surely, others will. Before, I sort of ignore them (unless the FA met my hotness criteria). I want to catch these girls in my coming flights! I am seriously considering Cebu Pacific in all my travels now. (Just a note, Cebu Pac should now start addressing their flight schedule issues)

incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs
I was busier when I was jobless.
I was everywhere in the metro attending examinations and interviews. Even at home, I am preoccupied related to my job hunt browsing different career sites and editing my résumé. But as you all know, I was recently hired in a telecom company and has started last Monday. Yet here I am in my cubicle slothful… against my will. I feel like a professional bum, if there’s such a thing.
Just when the girl I like broke up with my friend, I seem to lose my interest to her.
Not actually. I gave up on her months ago as a respect to my buddy. I remained a close friend to both of them nonetheless. But when opportunities like this sprout, some people grab it. I am not one of those “some people”. Besides, I have already confided (my old feelings) to her days before their breakup and I have accepted the fact that I will always be just a friend to her. Case close.
A markdown sale in Mall of Asia, tagged as the “Big Big Sale of Asia”, happens this weekend exactly at the middle of my bankruptcy.
The last word above is an exaggeration. I am just penniless. My last pay in my previous work is still on hold. I only have three grand at the bank right now. And I just received earlier my bill from the credit card and it stands at more than ten grand. I’m totally broke right now. My first salary here in my current job will only be on the end of the month. Though my due is payable on the next month, I just can’t spend on anything right now. Bad timing for a big sale…they should’ve consulted me before they put up an event like that. As if.
Two weeks of seclusion.
Two weeks of process called detachment.
Two weeks for the change to become permanent.
My days are numbered and it has wind down to this. Two weeks.
Two weeks before I leave the place I have considered home and school for more than three years.
Two weeks more and it’s over.
In two weeks, I hope it will all be smooth and easy.
I still can’t get over with what happened last Saturday. And I’m still bitter. Ryan Bang, the Korean guy and the life of the Big Brother house (as termed by us fans), should’ve won the prize of being PBB Teen Grand Winner. He deserves it more than the “dashing dude of Australia”, James Reid.
When Ryan described the Filipinos, though it isn’t clear what he’s trying to say, he was able to give the most sincere answer among the 6 and the most applauded one. Not to mention that it was funny at the same time. Ryan really intensified the Korean wave here in the Philippines. With James, he just admitted that he’s not worthy at all.
Who can pull off something like that so spontaneously? Despite being pure Korean blooded, Ryan showed he is more Filipino than most, if not all, teens inside the Big Brother House. Too bad, most Filipino tweeners are ‘jejemons’. They have poor discernment for voting the sugar-coated James. But who cares? I think Ryan remains to be the most loved housemate of his batch! He left a mark that will be hard to topple (see sample below). James will just evaporate even before the next reality show of ABS CBN starts. Below are some of Ryan’s moments inside the Big Brother house:
