hey mate!

Already here in Oz for a month now and starting a new chapter of my life. I am still in the adjustment phase, and I don't have much time to just sit and relax lately. There's so many things happened these past weeks and months, that's why I haven't been updating my blog. So basically, just a quick shout to say that I am still alive and kicking from the land down under!

Till next post!

Praying for Philippines

So many things happened since my last post. Pardon my blog free coz I have been dealing with real life problems. Since my last post, my home country was hit with natural disasters, a 7.2 earthquake, and a super typhoon. And now, there are lots of my kababayans that are really in need of help because of these calamities. It's heartbreaking. The situation is beyond words.

I pray that things will get better and will go back to normal soon. I am looking forward to a day that we, Filipinos will all look back on this day with a smile on our face, singing joyful songs with the use of new performance dw kits at guitar center ,  heads up with pride that together, we rise up... and with the help of all people around the world.

life @ home

I've been home for almost 2 weeks now, and I could say I am living a life that I am not used to... in a non-negative way.

Brekky is ready when you wake up though for the past days, I asked our househelp to stop cooking breakfast for me.

You can order any food that you fancy, and then voila! It will be serve on your next meal.

Laundry is basket is always empty.

Our househelp will ask me on a daily basis if I want my room to be cleaned, which I always say No.

These are just some of the perks that I enjoyed staying at home and I am trying to enjoy it as much as possible while I am here, but not too much that I might get use to this kind of lifestyle. It's actually like living in a hotel where your needs will always be attended ASAP. Hehehe. I just feel so blessed that we have a househelp that we can trust and can even carry tasks that are mostly done by men like farming and working with spill pallet. And everyday, little by little, I learned the life of the people here; their reality, their problems, lifestyle and some issues that bothers them that I can't fully understand and relate sometimes.

Counting the days until I face my own reality.

Loving home! :)

Home sweet home atlast! :) Now, I am resting from the most challenging trip I had so far! Travelling with a heavy hangover is not a good idea! I can't even stand the thought of alcohol! But eneweys, my last night in SG was sooo much fun! Thank you very much, Compassvale family! I will all miss you!

Currently unpacking... I didn't realize I have so many stuff in my last 3 years in SG! Gosh! But, if only I can bring everything, like the monitor stand, but I already had a max luggage! Hehehe.

Thank you Lord for the safe trip! I survived! :)

Thank You, SG!

I can't THANK each one who has been a part of my journey here in SG but, I will always be grateful to everyone who has been with me all through out. 

Thank you. I will see you  all again someday, one day. :)

After I got sick, I am back with my old bad eating habit; and in short, I am being unhealthy these days. Everytime I go to a resto, everything just seems yummm and even the food at some Kopitiam stalls that were not that attractive to me before looks very delicious now. Yes, I have a serious problem in controlling appetite. And just a while ago, because I saw a grilled pork pic at FB, now, guess what? I immediately made one for my dinner! Gaaah!

I seriously want to be back to my healthy lifestyle. I lose few lbs months ago, and now, I am back where I started. Grr. So, I researched some of the effective ways in controlling appetite and the following are some of the things online people suggested that I think I can follow and try:

1.  Eating small frequent meals.
I am not really the type to munch from time to time, so, I better keep snacks in my pocket then!

2. Don't skip meals.
I don't eat breakfast because I always oversleep and when I wake up, it's almost lunch time.

3. Eat your veggies!
I love veggies. It's just that meat are so much more tempting.

4.  Eat more whole grains and less refined carbohydrates
The problem is I tend to overeat rice!

5.  Eat slowly.
But time is gold! Hehehe

6.  Sleep and shed those pounds!
I've been sleeping 7hrs but not shedding pounds!

7. Drink more water.
Do softdrinks and beer count? :D

I know the problem boils down to discipline. So starting tomorrow, I'll be going to the gym. Hopefully I can keep away from foodie temptations! Aja!

miley, oh miley!

What's wrong with you?

The song "Wrecking Ball" is written beautifully, but, you just ruin it in your video. Tsk!

"Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me"
