Himig Handog P-Pop Love Song Winner

Last Sunday the winner of the Himig Handog P-pop love song emerge as it was interpreted by no less than Aiza Seguerra.

The song Anong Nangyari which is a song that talks about someone reminiscing and trying to figure out what went wrong in their relationship.

Though I do have a favorite song among the 12 finalists I couldn't argue that this song deserves to win. Here's Aiza's finale performance that night.

Meanwhile here are the other winners of the song fest.

I am happy about the result of the contest though I would hope that in the future veterans should be excluded from the competition and give way to newer and fresher talents and ideas. I mean some of them already know how to win. I leave my statement to that and would no longer expound.

Lastly even if Scared to Death didn't win it still is my favorite because it has one of the most refreshing song in the contest when it comes to the lyrics.

versions of me

Since I was a child I have felt that I am fat. But that was just how I felt, this I only discovered as I got old and really got fat. 

I started building up my beer belly when I got into college. It may be the pressure of keeping up float in a competitive state university or else you'll get kicked out or the stress of commuting everyday for more than 30 kilometers just to get to school. 

I got embarrassed easily with my body and I wouldn't take my shirt off even if it was too damn hot just like an ordinary man in this scorching hot tropical country of mine 

Let me share with you my journey in the weighing scale so far, lets start on March 2003. This picture was taken for my passport that year, as you can see I look normal here hahaha! though I have a bit of a gut during this time but nothing that bulges. 
March 2003
2004 was the year when I got to work a lot harder. The photo below was taken during our management training in Fontana. Learning how to smoke, eating out a lot of fast food at the middle of the night didn't help at all.
September 2004
Around 2005 a fitness chain opened up in the Philippines and since the prices back then was super low compared to what it is right now plus they were having some promotions, I took the opportunity to sign up and get back into shape. 

For two years I religiously went to the gym every after work and eventually the belly started to disappear. The peak of me being fit was around 2006 when I stopped eating rice (I didn't ate rice for more than a year) As you can see on the photo below I could say that I looked pretty good back then, had a jawline an actual chin without any doubles! lol! 
March 2006
After my I didn't renew my gym membership the struggle to keep my weight down started. I started swimming in replacement of my gym activities. 

2007 my bread bun cheeks started showing up.
November 2007
The following year I DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED! hahaha... no more Bread Bun Cheeks but my double chin appread! hahaha!
July 2008
2009 was no different I started getting bigger mainly because of the emotional stress that I was experiencing that time both at work and with my long distance relationship, I was eating my emotions. 
October 2009
The photo below was taken during Thank Giving of 2009 just a month after the photo above was taken yet I gained so much more!
November 2009
The next year yep still packed the pounds 200 lbs total..... what was I eating at this time????
April 2010
2011 was the year when I started recovering from a personal tragedy, I got used to being single slowly during this time by traveling solo. Yep this was the year I started traveling alone and this was the year that my travel blog was born.

October 2011
Going back to normal
December 2012
As of now I weigh around 175 lbs which still is over weight for my height, not the same as it was last 2003 but definitely better than 2010.

Amazingly I tend to lose a lot of weight each time I am in between jobs. I also quit smoking -running three months now- which also helped a lot in losing the unwanted weight. 

I am quite happy of my body right now but of course I'd like to be happier with a flat gutless stomach ;)

The Sheldon Cooper Situation

I've been following this sitcom for quite some time now, well over the net actually. I have been doing marathons of episodes of this sitcom every time that I can. Some of you might know what I am talking about already but for the benefit of everybody else I'm talking about The Big Bang Theory.

There is this character there Sheldon Cooper who is ignorant to the social conventions of life and is very much insentive to the feelings of other people. Some may think that Sheldon's character is actually impossible and could never exist. Well think again my friend I know someone who is just like him. 

He doesn't care of what other people think, he always think he is right well its kinda hard to enumerate all of it, just look at Sheldon and there you have it just less the genius of him. 

I can't actually think of any reason why I sticking up with him even though he never cares to say reach out to any of his friends including me aside from that fact that I consider him my friend. For me that is enough. 

My oh my Valentines Day

Oh Valentine why you ain't treating me right? =(

Well it might not really be Valentine's Day that is doing me wrong today maybe its just the day. I just thought that I could have spent my day and money on some other things, though I think everything is quite manageable.

Got up early today to fix my self so I could go to Bonifacio Global City and apply to this certain company but it turned out that I was not qualified since they need somebody who has a license to sell stocks, Now that could have been stated outright on their advertisement to save people their time!

Anyways, I don't feel that it was soooo bad at all. It felt good that I got back at where my career really started to go off. I can't believe that so much have change already. At that time there were just a bunch of buildings out there namely  Net One, One McKinley and Pacific Plaza and everything was pretty much grass land.

During lunch breaks we would walk to either McDonalds or Jollibee at the other end of the field.
Ohhh the nostalgia. Right now BGC feels like it really is a city by it self. So far from what I use to know it as.

So there, that is how my Valentines went today.

Happy Valentines!

emotional night

the truth is I have a lot of articles in my draft folder but here I am writing this. I am a bit emotional right now actually.

I was watching this kid on the internet named Sungha Jung, he is an incredibly amazing guitarist. It made me think about the life that I lived if I have lived this life worth enough to say I lived.

I find my self a jack-of-all-trades master-of-none as I don't excel in anything that I do.
I am just sick of not doing anything right.


P.S. Sharing this video with you guys. made me teary eyed while writing this entry. I don't understand what it says but it feels beautiful listening to it.

Happy Chinese New Year!
