Ate's Big Day, 1st Times and More

Since I'm in my tamad mood to study again lulubusin ko na. lol. Consecutive kasi ang mga occasion - my eldest ate's 2-day birthday celebration (twas her birthday last Aug. 31, she's 28 na!) with our house celeb last friday where I cooked spaghetti then we bought cake, the so-called Ultimate Chocolate Cake over at Raley's (na pangalan pa lang pamatay na). Yey! Tapos today ate's boyfriend treated us at Applebee's. Twas sweet of him nga. Uy first time ko dun! haha! Sorta like a Friday's, Chilli's kinda thing going on. Oh yeah and tomorrow we're going to San Leandro for a Filipino Fiesta there. 1st time again! lol.

Moving on, we went malling after para magpababa ng kinain at kasi madaming sale ngayon since malapit na ang Labor Day. Super mura! The other day nga kuya went to JC Penney tapos nakabili si kuya ng rubber shoes na Nike na $15 lang! wahaha! biruin mo yun Php660 lang! Parang Greenhills Class A price! Papasalubong daw nya kung kanino man, as if naman uuwi na. Ako napabili ako kahit na I'm trying to be super frugal since wala pa kong work. I bought a pair too kanina. Twas only 20 bucks (Php800) at super ganda pa. Not bad! Not bad talaga! Kahit pa 3rd pair of rubber shoes ko na yun dito. haha. Kasi early this year bumili din ako ng white pair (sa Rob Place pa yun) tapos ate gave me another pair na gray. Ang masasabi ko lang: a girl cannot have enough shoes and bags! Wuhoooo!

At saka magagamit ko naman yun. Bakit? Oh kasi eto na I'm trying to lose weight na talaga. Tama na ang pagpapakawala with an excuse na "I wanna try this and that," since every food here is new to my virgin Pinoy tastebuds. I swear I gained weight talaga! Sorry Lord! Taga sa bato I won't pig out anymore. Sabi nila pag bago ka sa States tataba ka talaga. Yung kabarkada ko when she went here for a vacation last June, she gained 15 lbs for her short 3 week stay. Anyway, nung bago ako dito, hala! Hindi nawawalan ng ice cream sa freezer and I super super heart ice cream! As in uber sweet tooth talaga ako kaya nga ang ending ang ice cream hindi nagtatagal ng 2 days, feeling ko kasi every meal should end with a cup of it! Kaya ayun, ubos agad! lol. Tapos kuya would buy cakes pa and I would be the one to choose pa the flavor. Tsk. But in fairness, hindi na ngayon! I have control na. Ang ice cream nagtatagal na ng 2 weeks. I also asked kuya to stop buying cakes. No more round two na din when eating for me.


But as you all know, cutting down on food will not work by itself. You hafta exercise as well to burn calories and hype your metabolism. I've been telling my ate na if I have work na that I'll enroll myself in a gym with her. Recently she transferred her membership to the newly built 24 Hour Fitness gym that's about 10 minutes away from our place. Sinama nya ko kanina since it was her 1st day. 1st time again na makapasok sa 24 Hour Fitness! lol. Oh and just so you know, that gym is like the McDonald's of health buffs, sikat madami and big. It has 370 clubs nationwide and it's the gym that sponsors The Biggest Loser show. Ang counterpart nya: sorta like Fitness First sa Pinas. And I tell you, today's a saturday and 8:30 kami ngpunta but I swear nagulat ako sa sobrang daming tao. Walang sinabi ang dami ng tao sa Fitness First sa RP! Wala sa kalahati even. Extremes talaga dito sa states, sobrang daming obese at syempre madami ding weight conscious. I liked the gym, especially the pool and the sauna!!! That I really like. I promise to enroll talaga when I have work na but in the mean time working out sa bahay will do.

Haha todo na to! Pag hindi pa ko pumayat aba ewan ko na lang.

Thanks for the comments cory. I’m really thankful talaga for passing the boards. Sayang nga lang yung 0.2 but then again, passing that darn difficult exam is such huge a blessing, it definitely will suffice!

I love shopping too, esp. pag Thanksgiving! Super sale!!! Hahaha, basta agahan ang pagpunta sa Macy’s/Bloomingdales, or else pangit na ang makukuha. Hehehe. I luurve ice cream too (may bias ako for vanilla, strawberry, pistachio and caramel variants), but with the calories and fats and too much carbohydrates, I’m trying to veer away from such. My new obsession? Donuts and cupcakes. GoNuts’s cupcakes remind me of cupcakes sold in New York! Kaya everytime I pass by GoNuts, lagi akong bumibili, feel ko nasa NY ulit ako. Hehehe.

I recommend swimming (pampa-payat) and yoga (pampa-tone, and for flexibility). Kung grabe talaga ang need para pumayat, go for Tae-Bo! Go Billy Blanks!

ayoko ang mahal sa 168. mas mura sa divisoria mall at sa tutuban. anak ng teteng, barat na ito! wala pa akong pera for christmas shopping. alam mo naman, buhay grasa pa rin ako.

uy, nagtu-turbo jam ka pala. naintriga ako dun kasi sa home tv shopping parang may adhd yung mga andun. ang sasaya nila, parang ayaw tumigil...gusto ko nga i-try. =)

pero maganda nga yung swimming..nakakapag-improve pa ng respiratory function.

@KC: ah talaga meron na pala sa home tv shopping nun. oo pag napanuod mo ung video para clang mga energizer bunny, ang hyper nila wala clang kapaguran! oo try mo un ok naman sya mega kakapagod parang tae-bo ni billy banks.

By Blogger Cory, at 2:26 PM  

woohoo! ayos sa raket si billy banks. ang turbo jam pala parang weed na rin no? mukha silang asa nirvana. *lol*

pero mas gusto ko ang swimming kasi nag-swimming lessons ako nung grade 4 ako tas pumayat naman ako..naging negra lang.
