SPOTTED: Sebastian's Dive Bar and Xplory!

These were the things that I spotted this weekend!! :) I finally was able to see an actual Xplory stroller here in the Philippines!  (I've seen actual ones being sold in Rustan's for a whopping P80,000.00++!!)  This has GOT to be the first time I'm seeing one that is being used!! Can you see the green stroller at the back?? My jaw dropped when I saw the stroller - this is my dream stroller!  Hahahaha......  I was also finally able to try Sebastian's Dive Bar!  It cost P120.00 I picked: Vanilla Ice Cream Peanut Butter Dive Rainbow Sprinkles (I am a sucker for rainbow sprinkles!!) Pinipig The verdict - it was soooooo good!  It brought back childhood memories of munching on Magnolia's Pinipig Crunch!!

Team Carnival Week #7 - Online Friendships

Everyone knows that I sooooo enjoy watching the tv show FRIENDS.  This brought about the topic that I am hosting this week!  image borrowed from google images Online friendships! I used to laugh at the idea of meeting friends online.  While in HS when most of my friends were busy chatting at IRC chatrooms and having eyeballs - I had a boyfriend, thus I never understood the fascination with chatting and getting to know a person without physically being with them. A few years later - I learned how to chat, to surf the net, join forums and to blog. As I joined forums, I met people online.  These people - to be honest, I have no clue about.  I only knew them with their nicknames and their activities online.  Somehow - seeing their comments and opinions on certain topics, showed me that if ever we met, we can be good friends.  This is where I realized - online friendships can actually  work! Never in a million years did I think that I these online friendships would turn into dee

I finally RAN!

Actually - I finally jogged!  And walked, and jogged and walked and walked some more. I have to say, that for the FIRST time ever in my life - I RAN/JOGGED!   Image borrowed from THIS site You do know that I am the most lazy person when it comes to sports and exercise.  I refuse to move a lot and refuse to feel the icky sweat trickling!  The only excercise that I have ever did religiously was Bikram Yoga.  I fell in love with Bikram Yoga because it was a low impact exercise that burned thousands of calories!!  The thing was - I stopped at 2008, because I was getting very busy planning my wedding.  But once my wedding was done - laziness crept in and here I am, almost two years later - chubbier and the laziest I've ever been!! So what changed my mind?  Well, firstly - running was free, I didn't need to pay for any gym membership!  Secondly - I can do it by myself!  Thirdly - weight loss was fast!! :) And so I decided - I bought myself a pair for Ryka rubber shoes in

In the years that I have been actively online - I have found friends online who later became my good good real friends.  I have friends who've met their significant others online - amazing isn't it?  I hope you can share your thoughts and insights on Online Friendships!

canDIshhh VOTES!

This morning - I woke up nervous and excited. I immediately checked on my Plurk and Twitter accounts for updates. As early as 11am - reports of PCOS machines failing have been on the radio, tv and social networks on TV.  This honestly got me worried. When I got to the precinct - I immediately looked for my name on the list, checked my cluster and asked the PPCRV volunteers for the precinct number.  They were ready with a map to show me where in the baranggay hall it was located.  As I entered the baranggay hall, I first noticed the long lines, followed by the number of people from all walks of life, followed by an observation that - it wasn't like this in the past elections where people were seated down rather than standing up.  As I reached my precinct's table - I was shocked.  I then gave my SSS id to the person in charge - she then searched for my name.  Honestly - this took the longest as she was looking at the wrong list!  It turns out that she thought my middle name

Supermarket DI'scoveries: Invisible Kool Aid!

DI'scovered:  Puregold in Subic! I honestly overheard two kids walking by the powdered juice section all giddy and chatty.  They were looking at a certain Kool Aid.  When they left - I looked at what they fussing about.  I saw - Kool Aid, great!  Another Kool Aid drink!  Nothing new right?  But when I turned back to my cart - at the corner of my eye, I saw something.  And so, I did the 'double take' and then I finally saw why those two kids were giddy! It was KOOL AID - Invisible! What the hell did that mean right?  And so, I read on - and there it was 'Clear drink!  Great fruity taste!' Now, isn't that something?  I proceeded to tell my Panget's SIL, she said that, the 'invisibility' may make the drink healthier as there will be no more additive of coloring! Cool huh?!

I am giving away tickets to the Then and Now Massive Music Festival 2010! Yahoo!!  Imagine watching a single concert with so many artists!!  Cool right? From the Then and Now site: The THEN AND NOW Massive Music Festival ambitiously positions itself as-- quite possibly-- the biggest Philippine music event of the year. We have six artists performing all their greatest hits for all their Filipino music fans: TQ, SWV, P.M. Dawn, Diana King, Baby Bash, Frankie J, JoJo, and even a few more to follow.
