Nat Geo Earth Day Run v. 2

22 06 2011

Running is no radical move. I find it fun, plus my competitive streak comes out naturally. All intention aside, I run for fun. Is that the reason why they named it Fun Run? Perhaps it’s a play of words but it works nonetheless.

Nat Geo Earth Day Run

27 05 2011

I want to live healthy. Fine. Diet? No, I’ll go nuts if I do that. If I subsist under the mercy of crackers and water, I’ll eventually end up losing a bolt or two. And we all know that’s not pretty.

The escape. Run.

There have been several benefits that relates running to healthy living, so I thought of giving it a try and eat anything I want. I suppose I can stay on my calorie intake if I add a little in the loop. So below is my first try; something I did with my boyfriend given he’s been running this marathon a few times now.





To Read – Later

21 03 2011

A short trip to Greenbelt resulted to Gruber, Rice and Gaiman. I was supposed to get a pair of running shoes but got distracted. Stroud, Gruen, Pratchett and Follett are backlogs.

I’ve read American Gods last year – loaned by a friend – but I wanted my own copy and a reread. So when I saw a good edition, I made a decision to ignore the shoes.

Note:

No Photoshop manipulation included





Antonio’s

6 10 2010

Found an hour away from the city, Antonio serves organic gourmet food. The place is also famous for its homey feel that best describes the kind of dining we wish to achieve when we wish to talk and celebrate work, life and love.

Surely, this isn’t like your typical loud mouthed commercial-whore-of-a-restaurant like what we are accustomed to in the city. This one is quiet, unpretentious and literally off the beaten path.





Heat

21 09 2010

Me and some friends had dinner at Heat Shangri-La a few days ago and I was lucky enough to be allowed by the chef to take a few pictures to take for memory.

Heat offers international cuisines that are utterly delectable. This, hands down, is my new favorite restaurant; something that will be frequented for celebrations.

Come main course I could not take snaps anymore, not that I was not allowed, I was just too darn hungry. Here have a look …





Cathedral-Basilica of the Immaculate Conception

6 09 2010

Or more famously known as Manila Cathedral, is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila. It is located in the Intramuros district of Manila in the Philippines. The cathedral has been damaged and destroyed several times since the original cathedral was built in 1581; the sixth and current incarnation of the cathedral was completed in 1958 and was consecrated as a minor basilica in 1981. It is dedicated to Saint Mary under the title Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the Philippines.
