Prompts, The Sunday Currently

The Sunday Currently Vol. 15

It’s Palm Sunday today and tomorrow’s officially the start of Holy Week. Have you booked your plans already?


  • reading reviews of beach resorts in Palawan and Batangas. We have yet to book somewhere for next week but we’ve been eyeing a resort just nearby.
  • writing this post and our crazy hell Jakarta adventure.
  • listening to the OTRA setlist mixtape in Spotify. I still can’t get over with the boys. 🙁
  • thinking if I ate something spoiled or whatever because I’ve been to the bathroom at least thrice in the past 20 minutes.
  • smelling coffee. Aaaaaah.
  • wishing for Zayn to come back to the group. That’s okay, right???
  • hoping to be able to return to my regular exercise programming tomorrow.
  • wearing tank top + shorts.
  • loving the view from Chapel on the Hill at Don Bosco Batulao. Photo above.
  • wanting to cliff dive and snorkel and just basically taste seawater.
  • needing to organize photos in my iPhone because my camera roll looks like a group selfie dump…. Well, it is.
  • feeling excited for Holy Week, hoping we get to spend it by the beach.
  • clicking online shops.

How about you? What are your plans for next week? Let me know!

Life, Personal, Tips

A Weight Loss Journey (+ Personal Tips)

A couple of weeks ago, I finally had the guts to write up a story I thought I’d never share. I have drafted this post long ago and finally hit it up to The Fat Kid Inside without telling anyone. I realized that it went live on Erwan’s blog when people started sending me “congratulations” messages on facebook.

Anyways, here are some of my “before” photos that show how big and unhealthy I was.

That’s me circa 2010 in a Physics laboratory class.

Let me share some things I did and things I still continue to do right now to lose weight, motivate myself, and redeem my self conifdence. Remember that these are personal experiences that I’m listing as “tips”  though what may have worked for me doesn’t necessarily mean will work for you 100%. Consider them as guide and not your sole basis to starting a new lifestyle.

Weight Loss Tips aka Self-Redemption Tips

  1. Know your motivation.
  2.  Take baby steps.
  3. Cut the junk.
  4. Cook your own food and/or prepare a meal plan.
  5. Reward yourself once in a while.
  6. Break a sweat.
  7. Beat your own record.
  8. Don’t look at the scale every single time.
  9. No shortcuts.
  10. Acknowledge what other people has to say about your improvement.
  11. Keep going and embrace your new lifestyle.
  12. Feel good about yourself.

I know it’s late! It’s officially Monday already but what the hell, I’m still publishing my 14th volume because I loved this day!

  • writing this blog post alone.
  • listening to the aircon’s mechanical sounds.
  • thinking if I missed some personal things for tomorrow’s flight.
  • smelling grilled liempo, still. Liempo is king.
  • wishing to bump into at least 1/4 of 1D boys.
  • hoping to be able to squeeze a quick workout tomorrow.
  • wearing nike tank top and jersey shorts.
  • loving the Caesar salad from Starbucks and Kale smoothie from Jamba Juice which I had for lunch earlier this day.
  • wanting to see fucking One Direction. I’m so alive right now!
  • needing to fix my things and squeeze in a little more pieces of clothing in my backpack.
  • feeling excited, duh? How many times have I mentioned this?!?!?!
