Why Filipinos are a Sad, Sad People.

One of my most viewed post regarding the Azkals vs Dragon Boat Scandal. #ThrowbackThursday #Philippines

The Lazy Daily

I know it’s been a while since I last wrote something substantial, and not useless on this thing. Believe it or not, that’s actually one of the reasons why I started this “blog”: I wanna write about something that is useful, opinionated, and not stupid. If you know me, then you know I say a lot of stupid things (jokes, crack-ups, false anecdotes, etc.). However, what substantial thing I always say, I leave for my writings. 

So I guess you could say that this is one of them. This entry is about why I think we suck as a people. You may like it, or you may hate it… but the beauty of it is that I told you what this would be about, even before you read… so basically you have the option to not read it. So, there you go.

Why Every Millenial Needs a TEMPUR® Bed

Yes

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

We spend a a third of our lives sleeping. That’s an average of about 230,000 hours in a lifetime. With society’s demands from our generation, are we really getting enough sleep?

tempur

But you see, it’s not about quantity of sleep or the number of hours we put in. It’s the quality. Research shows that even if you sleep for over 8 hours a night, it doesn’t necessarily translate to full sleep cycles required by our mind and body to fully rejuvinate. And I feel strongly that this is why we really need to invest in getting quality sleep. I don’t really see it as  a luxury but more of a necessity. Yes, it takes over a hundred grand to score a Tempur® bed but it shouldn’t be less of a priority as getting quality sleep is a big step in life improvement.

Keeping It Real, Quezon

GIS DO IT!

_MG_2973

We left for Real when the New Year was only 10 days and 20 hours old.

We arrived at 4:17, Saturday morning -would’ve probably gotten there sooner if “Ways” didn’t keep lying to us (Sterero siya!)   Next time we’ll print out a map.

The cottage owners were still asleep (rental opens at 6am and closes at 10pm), so we found shelter in the form of a coconut hut while waiting for them and the sun to rise. Jim, Harry and Bea did the smart thing and took power naps. But Tommy and I were more interested in capturing images of the sky getting dressed. The boats watched with us.

Tommy and the SeaGood morning Boat!
All we wanted to do was watch the sky choose its colors for the day.  But the local sky guardians mistook our intentions as perverse and went to investigate our actions. They came in the form of dogs, which made me…

21 Awesome Things That Are Way Better When You Do Them Alone

Thought Catalog

1. Binge-watching the shows that you’re really embarrassed to love, but which you love more than you imagine you will love your own children some day.

2. Ordering a pizza with exactly the toppings you want, ecstatically counting down the minutes until the delivery man arrives, and reveling in the knowledge that you don’t have to share a single slice with anyone.

3. Proceeding to eat said pizza with the kind of abandon you only allow yourself when no one is there to watch/judge you.

4. Turning on your favorite music and spending a whole afternoon cleaning and re-organizing all your stuff to be exactly the way you want it, and getting all the satisfaction at the end of a job well done.



5. Going to a new city and spending the whole day walking around, just deciding where you want to eat for dinner that night. Looking in the…

Hills, Elephants, and Alan Rickman: I Wish I Could Read

I wish I had learned to love to read. This was one of my most hated truths about myself. Actually, I think it’s my only hated truth. Well, at the very least, until I uncover some new ones… but i digress. I think that loving to read would’ve been fucking awesome. Like Thrift Store awesome.

Welcome to Your Mid-20s: Things to Keep in Mind

Being in your mid-20s has nothing to do with how old you are. The Mid-20s is a state of mind that, unfortunately, I cannot properly define. All I know is, there are certain things that will show that you’re actually in this period in your life. Its fucking confusing, and a drag, but, if met with proper preparations… it’ll be a little less of those things.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

This is how kids see us Mid-20s folk.

Crossover Hits, Branding, and David Beckham

So, David Beckham is set to retire at the end of this French League season. At 38 years old, David Beckham, England’s captain, owner of David Beckham’s Right foot, as well as David Beckham’s Left foot, has finally decided to hang up his cleats. Sad day? Perhaps for some. For me? Not so much. See, I’m not a big fan of David Beckham, per Se. I am, however, a big fan of what he has done for the sport, here (in the Philippines), and in the entire world. That, and he married Posh Spice. I mean, who wouldn’t be impressed by that?

2013 Philippine Elections: Transparency, The Final Frontier

I don’t know about you, but I was pretty disappointed with this years national elections. I was hoping people we would be a little smarter when it came down to our choices, however, personally speaking, I fear that was not the case. I’m sure a sizable amount actually thought about their choices, and actually did thorough research. Unfortunately, I feel that there were more people that relied on name recall to cast their votes. Oh well. That happened, we gotta move on (see my previous post here on suggestions on how to move on). I’m here to write about what we can do post 2013. I stumbled upon a little Facebook page a few days ago, thanks to a friend’s reco, and I found it quite… educational. So, as most series come in three’s (except for Arrested Development), I now bring you the final article I’ll be writing on the 2013 Philippine National Elections.
