Grandparents Day in the Philippines

Sep 8, 2014 |

Grandparents Day is celebrated in different times of the year, depending on where you’re from. Even though I’m living in the US, we still celebrate it today because my paternal grandparents live back in Manila. Of course, as is our nature, I sent over some presents a while ago since it takes a bit longer [...more]

Heavy on the Testosterone

Aug 25, 2014 |

This past weekend, my Dad and a few other relatives of mine — all male — decided to head out to Colorado for a testosterone-filled adventure. We did so many activities but my favorite was when we hopped on our ATV (all-terrain vehicles) and took a route up the mountain. The track was steep and [...more]

Ain’t It Fun

Aug 18, 2014 | | Say something

Hey guys! I know it’s been two years since I last updated my blog. There were a lot of things going on that I just didn’t have time to post anything. Plus, I felt uninspired to write anymore. I didn’t like that I felt like I really had to post something even when I didn’t have anything [...more]

The Holy Grail of Treadmills

Aug 11, 2012 | | Say something

Finally, after almost 7 days of intense searching on the web, we found the treadmill that we’ve been looking for. I was almost as good as the one at the gym but it’s second hand. The good news is, the owner only used it for 4 months and wants to sell it since he will [...more]

On the Lookout

Jul 19, 2012 | | Say something

Since we hatched our brilliant plan from that burger joint, I immediately asked around for the latest, high end, quality yet affordable treadmills. There were amazing ones, just like at the gym, but their prices are way of the roof! There was no way we can save for that in 6 months. Julian was a [...more]

The New Game Plan

Jul 1, 2012 | | Say something

We’ve been working out for quite some time now and Julian was looking great. His weight now ranges from 195-193 lbs, what an achievement! When we were hanging out in his favorite burger joint, he remembered that we were just 5 months away from renewing our gym membership fee. We couldn’t afford to ask money [...more]

Laughing it Out

Jun 7, 2012 | | Say something

Another cold and lonely 14 days passed since I punched Julian. I wonder how is he taking all this? I keep spotting him around school and in class, but we never really talk. Until one day, while in the cafeteria, Julian was three benches right across from where I was sitting. A kid eating on [...more]

Sucker Punch

May 31, 2012 | | Say something

Later, that week Julian sat beside me all gleaming with pride and victory. Then he started teasing me how a loser am I and not like him. I didn’t mind at first but he continued until we arrived at the locker room. He wouldn’t shut up. Then suddenly, form out of nowhere, my left fist [...more]

The Victor Goes the Spoils!??

May 22, 2012 | | Say something

GOD DAMN IT!! I lost the freakin’ bet! To make it worse, I punched Julian on the nose because of it. I know what I did was wrong, but kept on rubbing it to my face. Damn! As much as I hate losing, I hate it when people rub it further on me. So, there [...more]

The Challenge

May 1, 2012 | | Say something

Julian isn’t the kind of person who gives up without a fight. All thought we aren’t in speaking terms, we still sit at the same bench for lunch, sit next to each other in Algebra (because we have to choice), and see each other in the gym. Although we’re not really mad at each other, [...more]
