A 5′ 9.5” dude on a lazy Satuday says Thank You PEEPS! ;)

This is my 75th blog entry, we take a break from NBA action since there are no games today. So yes, my blog is swinging well. My Blogger blog is about to reach 2,000 views all-time, and my WordPress blog is about to reach 1,200 views all-time. While my “Some tips worth taking for our UST Freshies” blog entry on Blogger recently passed the 500 views mark, the WordPress version is nearing the 200 views mark. I also want to say Yo! to my 3 blog followers on Blogger and 14 blog followers on WordPress. If you have a Blogger and/or WordPress blog, please don’t forget to follow my blog. I follow back. Once the NBA season is over, expect more things about my life journey soon.

So yesterday, our family went for a physical examination at the clinic. We took a blood test, x-ray, cleaning of our teeth, and other physical tests. It was also on the examinations I found out that I’m 5 feet and 9.5 inches tall. I’m as tall as NBA player Nate Robinson (though I can’t jump as high as he is). I’m still hoping that I could get as high as 6 feet tall. But also, I needed to gain a little more weight to compensate my height spark. Like they say, It’s a free country, You can do what you want. I just remembered I used to be a chubby kid before the height spark came along. True enough, I came a long way from that time in my life.

I had another great time at Shakey’s, the food and the service was great like our previous visits and we love to come back again. On Tropical Bacon pizza, Mojos and rootbeer, I have one happy tummy.

I hope I can go back to Starbucks on the last day of the Frappuccino Happy Hour this coming Monday and take advantage once again of half-priced coffee. If that happens, I would be 4 for 5 on Frappuccino Happy Hour this year.

There is only 16 days left before I head back to school. I don’t have clear ideas of what to do to make these days count. But I’ll do my best to make it all worth it. Of course, I can’t wait to see my PEEPS in UST from my classmates, batchmates and other people around the university.

Once again, I thank the PEEPS for visiting my thought ladder since I returned to blogging last month, and I hope you come back to check on all my future posts here.


Today, we dine, we laughed, we chill out.

In the middle of summer vacation, you can not help using your time wisely, especially this is a time where you have all the time in the world to use from (unless if your doing summer jobs or classes during the summer time). So that’s why today, I decided to spend time with some of my friends for lunch. One of our friends Yna decided to treat us all to lunch at Shakey’s España which is near the UST campus. 

It was a great feeling to be around with friends again, a few weeks after classes came to an end. Spending leisure time with my friends, it was also a chance to catch-up with the things that has happened since the break, especially my friend Ish who is now studying at another school after she left UST at the end of our first year of studies (Well most of my friends keep in touch, I just don’t go out often, so it’s great seeing them again.)

The lunch we had was perfect for all of us. 2 pizzas (Manager’s Choice and Pepperoni), Chicken and Mojos, Spaghetti and Carbonara with 3 pitchers of Coke. Good enough for the whole troupe. 

Though i dropped 2 pizza slices which was bad on my part. Was it on my sometimes clumsy actions? or was I out of sync that time? Well, past is past. Just rock on in the end.

Afterwards, we went on a little side trip down at the Moonleaf Tea Shop. Though, I never tried their drinks, although the PEEPS say their drinks are good (I just don’t like  and of course the sound trip with the songs being played on the sound system.

So we thank Yna for the lunch today, and of course to the rest of the Tropa-GUISE who were with me as well Kym, Ryan, Claudine, Deece, Ish, Gieane (with little sister) and Nicole. Thank you for the great time today. It was all worth it. It adds another great experience to the things that happened on my favorite month of the year April.

10 days from now, it’s my birthday. I can’t wait. I wonder what will happen on the day itself.

But for now, I say enjoy the ride.
