Heritage Fun Run: Run to Help Philippine Tourism

This is one run you should not miss! Finally, a fun run for FREE! Woot! Woot!


Not your ordinary Sunday race as this doesn't give you a singlet or a medal or a shirt after the run. Not loot bags either. No timing chip too. Just a fun fun fun run (you can bike too) along some of the historical sites in Manila.


Note for all: Please Read this from Carlos Celdran. He was the one who started this. Then, while we (#helpDOT tweeps) are having a brainstorming meeting last Friday at Department of Tourism with U.Sec Enteng Romano, I suggested that we can also have runners during that bike tour. So this fun run was born.


Don't expect too much. This is just an advocacy run to help Department of Tourism (#helpDOT)- that's all. I encourage runners who are interested to learn something from our own history while running (healthy na, historical pa).


What will I gain here? Nothing. Just a genuine support to our DOT. Meet runners and tour Manila for free. I believe SMART Philippines will cover this event too!


Any help I can do? Join us! Promote! Promote! Blog about this! Tweet! Facebook this! Make a shout out! O btw, we need photographers so we can make this thing viral.


Date: September 5, 2010 (Sunday), 6:00am (be there at 5:45am)
Meeting Place: Manila Film Center (its near PICC, CCP and Sofitel)
Distance: 6 kilometers more or less (for those who are having an LSD we can retrace the route 2-3 times)
Route: Starting at the Manila Film Center then around Malate, Ermita, Intramuros, & Binondo and back again.
Hydration: Please bring your own.

So many things, So little time...

In just a span of one week a lot of things happened... A lot of things changed.

I left home last friday night with my son, to be with my parents. Had a not so good argument with dearest husband, so I decided to leave him for the mean time and spend my weekend at my parents' place. My decision was great, coz my dad brought with him a cake and lots of food for us to feast on. :) yay! food trip again! :) never mind my husband being alone at home. He's got his parents to comfort him if he gets scared. wehehe! (he is afraid of being alone ;p)

Saturday, I left the house to attend an FGD in mandaluyong then headed to BHS for Immuvit's run against time. I learned a lot of good things there, which I wish to apply to myself soon hehe. :)

Sunday, DLSU vs ADMU. ohwell talo and tambak haha! My brother was ofcourse quietly cheering for his school to win, but dlsu is just too weak this time. I hope they scout good players next year. After the game, we had Pizza :) so nice of my dad to buy food for us. lav yah dad!

Monday, terrible terrible. I logged in to my fb mobile and saw anc news reporting abt a hostage crisis in Manila.... :( i dowanna blog about it. it just breaks my heart. well, we're also back in cavite.

Tuesday, Venus Raj Won 4th runner up Ms. U!yay! pambawi

Wed. bought new ref for nin. yippeee!

Thurs. Grocery day. haha!

Trying out a new theme...

If you may notice, I've changed my blog theme again... well i'm just trying something to refresh my senses

and while writing this one, I received an email from jobstreet... I saw an interesting job that actually fits my specialization. I kinda have a thought of getting a job, having a new life, a new career again... but if I work... who will take care of my son? Why is it always so hard to go back to working? Ofcourse I want a job. I need a job. I want one to help my husband support our family... It's just that, nobody will look after my kid once I decide to go back to working... oh well. whatta life... Some needs job but doesn't have the qualifications to get one... While me, I have those qualifications fit for the job, but I can't work because of this and that... Opportunities are going gone... I don't know when will I be able to work again... I am not getting any younger, and the fact that a lot of fresh grads are highly obsessed of finding a job, there are also the undergrads who want to try their luck in the business world... too much competition getting in the way... too much luck going out of my way... haaaay. :((

Celebrating a friend's bday + family nightbonding

Today is such a special day, coz it's my friend mian's birthday! :)
Was so happy to celebrate it with her family.
Though it was just an impromptu invite, me, my son and my husband sure did enjoy the day... or should I say night? hehe.

Thanks Mi, for the wonderful meal from BK ;) and I hope Rob did enjoy her playtime at dave's. Pls don't forget to bring socks the next time we go there. hehe.

Happy Birthday Mian! :)

OneRepublic
Secrets lyrics

I need another story
Something to get off my chest
My life gets kinda boring
Need something that I can confess

Til’ all my sleeves are stained red
From all the truth that I’ve said
Come by it honestly I swear
Thought you saw me wink, no
I’ve been on the brink, so

Tell me what you want to hear
Something that were like those years
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away
This time, don’t need another perfect line
Don’t care if critics never jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away

My god, amazing how we got this far
It’s like we’re chasing all those stars
Who’s driving shiny big black cars

And everyday I see the news
All the problems that we could solve
And when a situation rises
Just write it into an album
Singing straight, too cold
I don’t really like my flow, no, so

Tell me what you want to hear
Something that were like those years
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away
This time, don’t need another perfect line
Don’t care if critics never jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away

Oh, got no reason, got not shame
Got no family I can blame
Just don’t let me disappear
I’mma tell you everything

So tell me what you want to hear
Something that were like those years
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away
This time, don’t need another perfect line
Don’t care if critics never jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away

So tell me what you want to hear
Something that were like those years
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away
This time, don’t need another perfect line
Don’t care if critics never jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away
All my secrets away, All my secrets away

--- I just love it :)

My first 10K ♥

I was mentally prepared for my first 10k, but I think wasn't physically trained particularly for the uphill route. The first 2k was no joke, I was running alone and can't pace up with the other runners, again and again, I felt that pain on the left part of my abdomen.... I was losing it.... then I met this lady in a violet top. She's so friendly and nice, we had a small chat while running, she was telling me that she's so out of it and I replied, me neither. We were laughing while running. At times I kinda feel breathless and she offered me some beans. I tend to pace a little slower as I was nearing the 4k mark. But still, I tried to run and not walk. The marshalls were a big help on giving me a boost. I got motivated upon reaching 5k. Everything felt good as I took my marker. On the 6k, I was again paced by another runner, he's a pinoy but speaks good english. He cheered me up and told me I can do it. I ran ahead of him as he was pacing really slowly. As I went ahead I was wondering if I don't look like a pinay, cause all other runners who tried to pace up with me are talking to me in english. Maybe they thought I'm a korean coz there were alot of korean runners that day. So there, I run alone again, nobody to pace with. The runners ahead of me were too fast. I tried my best to cope up with them, to run even on the hills. I motivated myself. I keep on reminding myself that I can do it and I will not walk. I will finish this race and will never give up. In the end, I was able to run with those runners ahead of me, I finished my first 10k strong. Was so happy for myself. :)
Thank you Lord for giving me the strength to finish this race. ♥
