Muscle pains, itchy legs, sweating, dark skin, is it worth it? 

I know all the pain will be worth it as I make exercise (running/jogging/swimming) part of my lifestyle. As I grow up, or should I say grow older, all the more I realized the importance of keeping the body in good shape.  Making the most of this opportunity because time waits for no man. Aja! Aja!

What are the things that you consider in choosing sunblock?

I bought one and here's why I like this sunblock.

1. Protection immediately after application. Some sunscreen takes 20-30 minutes to be absorbed by the skin but this does not have to wait because of its immediate UVA/UVB protection system.

2. Water resistant. I am using this sunscreeen during swimming so it has to be water resistant.

3. Good brand. Nivea is a well-known brand so I chose it rather than those that I never heard of though they are cheaper.

Do you want to work in the academe?

My sister works as a professor in a university in our place. I was asked to proctor (monitor students during examination) in her 3 classes and the experience was really unforgettable. Haha. I did my best to appear fierce to the students and be firm on my words while giving instructions. I tried to be serious but I was actually laughing in the inside. It was a tough job. Phew!

A lot of people have noticed that I am getting darker. Wahhhhhhhh, they're right because of uneven skin tone all over my body due to swimming. I just hope that it will pay-off, at least I will learn one swimming stroke, proper diving and treading the water.

By the way, my sneezing and allergy attacks have lessened since I started swimming. (that some good news!)

Officially, I am a black woman! But in my thought "I am just getting ready for the summer." (pampalubag-loob, haha)

I had my guitar repaired due to the cracks behind which I found out several days ago. I am not sure if it was my niece's fault or it bumped into something but I am grateful that I am back with singing and strumming.

This bag is perfect for wet clothes after going into swimming. I like its color and the wordings that says "CLOTHES". The fabric is made up of nylon so its water-proof, strong and difficult to tear. Instead of bringing plastics, nylon bag is more classy yet simple and would make your clothes more organized inside your bag.

What do you think about nylon bags?

"When I WRITE, I feel God's pleasure."

There is something about writing that excites me. I feel like every part of me rejoices when I put ideas and thoughts into writing.

What is that one thing you do that excites you and gives so much joy and relief?

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! ❤

I went jogging with my Dad early in the morning today - earliest date ever! Haha. Grateful that it didn't rain today because I've been missing my running schedule.

What are your plans for Valentine's day? Hope you all have a colorful day as you celebrate with your loved ones.

What wallpaper are you using on your phone?

As always, I am attracted to colors so my wallpaper is full of them. How you design your device reflects your personality. Here are some cool and lovely wallpaper photos.

Everytime I read this passage from the Bible, it never fail to speak something new about love. Love indeed takes time because patience, kindness and all other qualities mentioned here takes time to develop inside of us.

"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance."

Happy Valentine's day everyone ❤

I find these refillable small bottles very useful now that I am learning how to swim. It is where I keep my shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion. Instead of bringing big bottles and sachets, putting your toiletries on small bottles will make it clean and organized.

I also recommend these to people who travels a lot and to those who loves to stay overnight at a friend's house.

Do you see yourself marrying someone who's race and nationality different from yours?

I received in the mail today the wedding invitation of my friend, Ghia. She will be married to a non-Filipino, Nate. Yay! It's so amazing how two lives with completely different background from each other will be joined as one in marriage.

Snapshots of the invitation below: Isn't it cute? - "Save the date" words on their feet. I also like the material that was used and how my name was written on top of the invitation. There was like a personalized touch on it.

Congratulations Ghia and Nate!

Here's my goggles and swimming cap. It's funny how at first I was scared of getting darker (which I am now) but I ended up buying these things. I used to borrow from my brother but he scolded me and told me to have my own. Haha.

It was after my swimming lessons with my brother where we finished late. It was dark and I was in a hurry getting in to the shower room. I didn't get hurt though. Haste indeed makes waste.

How about you?

I mentioned here that I will be starting a fashion blog series but instead of calling it Fashion Feed, I decided to use Fashion Picks as title for all my posts.

For my first pick, I will feature my swimwear which I am using on my swimming lessons with my brother. I am more comfortable with shorts + top piece than one-piece / bikini swimsuit. And that's one thing I always consider on fashion: COMFORT. Why? Because I can only be CONFIDENT if I am COMFORTABLE with what I wear.

What are the things that you consider in choosing the clothes you wear? I'd be glad to hear your ideas.

It was my Mom and oldest brother's birthday yesterday. Yes! She gave birth to her first child on her birthday. Sounds odd, isn't it?

This photo was taken last Christmas 2012 with Mommy and my brother.

Happy Birthday Mommy and Kuya Jigs!
