Healthy Choice, My Choice

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Quaker Oats for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have signed up for 2 races every month right after my 1st year Running Anniversary. I never thought that running is addicting. I can’t brag that I am good at it because I know I’m not. It just feels good that I can challenge myself to do something that I know is good for my health. And knowing the benefits I get from it is just simply amazing.

Training on the other hand is the hard part both physically and mentally. It takes a lot of effort and self-control to train. And it takes miracle to stick on a strict diet. Hahaha. Well, good thing that nowadays there are healthy foods that are readily available to help me with my weight goal like the Quaker Soft Baked Bar which aren't just tasty, but are packed with 140 calories, 5g of Fiber, 6g of Protein and an excellent source of 5 B-Vitamins. What else can an active person like me ask for a snack bar?

This baby provides me with the FUEL I need with my training. This new wholesome food which is made with real fruits and nuts comes in two delicious flavors, Cinnamon Pecan Bread and Banana Nut Bread. My favorite flavor is Cinnamon Pecan Bread which is my eat on-the-go power breakfast snack when I am in hurry or when I have a race. But when I have those days where I can relax and enjoy a hearty snack while doing chores, I can just pop it up in a microwave for a real bakery experience. This great snack can get me through until my next meal so I am not worried that I get hungry and overeat when I get my hand of the food.

That is why Quaker Soft Baked Bars top my grocery list. I need to stock up on these snack bars because I’m not the only one enjoying it… my Sweetest too.  I make sure that he got his fair share in his lunch box every day when he goes to work.

Well, we all have choices. Making the right choice is always based on our personal preference. When it comes to health, we are given many choices too but as for me - my choice is Quaker Soft Baked Bar.

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
