Ultimate Fitness | Metrowalk

Worked out at the no-nonsense, results driven gym aptly called Ultimate Fitness in Metrowalk earlier today. At first glance alone, you know they mean business from the Fairtex bags, sets of RIP:60s (Suspended Rotation Training Equipment), kettlebells, freemotion dual cable machine, dumbbells, and the accomplished trainers. “Leave your ego outside” as their ethos states, helps one focus and is, fair warning to pace one’s self and not to let overconfidence make you eat humble pie. Their version of “Caveman Training” called Fight Form was what I did, combination of burpees, alternating rope swings, squat presses, and a lot more than …

Childhaus | Oppa! You know what comes next!

Last month, through the pooled efforts of Karylle, Zsa Zsa, Iza Calzado, Divine Lee, Yael Yuzon, the Philippine All Stars, and numerous Childhaus volunteers we managed to gather a sizeable number of people to initiate a flashmob right in the middle of Bonifacio High Street. TDK of course played a huge part, considering they provided the soundsystem needed to turn the place into a veritable frenzy of people dancing to the horse-galloping style craze. The Childhaus kids really loved it, and were eager to show their mettle on the impromptu dance floor. Crowd also went wild when the Philippine All …

TWG Tea Company | A Visit

Singaporean Tea Company TWG recently opened their first Tea Salon in the country, drawing a number of people to grace the event. Those in attendance, including myself were educated on how many teas the company has and which goes well with which macaroon, time of day, and personal preference.Delicious! Best enjoyed with… friends of course. Which tea though would have to be dependent on your palate.The 1837 in the TWG logo signifies the year in which the Singapore Chamber of Commerce was created, a credit to trade and industry. The lady assisting me had a slightly different take on the …

Beach on Christmas

I must have skipped three trips out this year due to work, which is a pretty good situation in my opinion. Still, flying out or even just a drive for a change of scenery has always been a personal favorite of mine, and sometimes when I get bouts of spontaneity I just book and “bahala na si batman” it.  Just nearby countries/places (Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong) or islands (Boracay, Palawan, etc.) naman, nothing that drastic or deadly to the pocketbook. Most of the best trips I’ve had were the ones I planned the night before, and though a little pricier than …
