A Day With My Super Friends

Last Monday, 15th of October, I was on vacation leave from the office. Kelangan na maubos ang mga leaves ko! Hehehe... But the latest news is that the company is buying out leaves! Yehey!!! Anyway, on that day, after a tiring workout session in the gym, of course with my personal trainor Joel, I headed directly to SM Megamall to meet my super friends. Especially my bestfriend na sobrang miss ko na... hehehe...

I met them in Starbucks and I was so hungry that time so we looked for a place where we can have our lunch at 3pm... Hehehe... So we found this Pizza Hut (not Bistro) on the first level of the said mall. The place was okay and we got the best seat!

What we ordered? Hmmm... We had Cheesy Pop Supreme Pizza, lasagna, dessert platter, Wendel had chicken and pasta. I think we also had some chicken wings and fries. The food were okay naman as always. Loved the lasagna but on the pizza... naaahhh!!! I had difficulty eating it because I had to remove all pork content on it. Di ba nga no pork ever?! Hehehe.... Wendel and I shared the dessert platter since marami naman... Buti na lang I had 1 hour cardio on the treadmill before that super lunch...

At around 6:30, Maret arrived from her work in The Fort. But after 20 minutes, she had to leave because she will be meeting his other friend but she promised that she will return. Also that time we discuseed about our trip for the next year. I will be in Bangkok on January, Ryce best together with his family and April will also be there on March. On May, we'll be going to Boracay! and June or July we will be in Hong Kong! Also on October next year, I'm planning to go to Davao and on December in Malaysia.

Wendel asked me to treat them to watch movie! What we watched? It is obvious in the picture... hehehe... Wendel wanted to watch "Apat Dapat, Dapat Apat: Friends 4 Lyf and Death" Hahahah!!! I think Wendel has a big crush on Pokwang... Hehehe... Anyway, para nga maiba naman, we watched it na rin and the movie was really funny! But some of the scenes were corny pero we enjoyed naman the movie and we laughed out loud.

After the movie, time for coffee!!! Hehehe... As usual, in Starbucks. Best, Wendel and I had blackberry green tea frapuccino, Breast had Java Chip and April got Mocha Frapuccino ata... heheheh... We had several kumustahans and kuwentuhans and we also discussed again about sa trip namin next year and other plans. We separated ways at around 12:30 in the morning. All of us went home except for Wendel. He went to his office and got some sleep to prepare himself for his 3 in the morning work!

P.S. This entry is dedicated to April. I used all the pictures from her new digital camera Olympus! Hehehe... Yung pwede mabasa, sakto for our Bora trip. Also, thanks to April for the new term to Wendel, instead of Obesefriend, he is now my Besefriend (or mas okay beastfriend?... hahaha)

Fitness First Branches Tour (Part Two)

1. Robinson's Manila - It was the month of March, my first and last visit to this branch. After a tiring "gimmick" night (Click here to check that out), I had my weekend workout here the next day. At first glance, as in, sobrang laki and so lawak! If I'm not mistaken, this is the biggest Fitness First branch. It has two floors that are so wide! Though the locker room seems to be old, also the shower room, mejo luma yung dating. But the equipments and workout machines were new (I think so). I also like the gym where's the location is inside the mall, it was so convenient.

2. Eastwood - Based on my bestfriend's stories, I think this is the branch where you will see a lot of celebrities. His office is located at Eastwood City and it is so easy for him to do his workout routine in this branch. I go to his gym very often but the experience was really cool. Malaki din sya, I just didn't like the scenery outside the window, Ilog Pasig! Hehehe... But the atmosphere is very refreshing, maliwanag kasi. The only disappointment to me was the sauna bath, ang liit! ang sikip! Also, the locker room, luma na ata yung mga cabinets. But the equipments were almost complete, except sa isang abs machine na hinahanap ko lage. I will make another visit to this branch to check the updates and new happenings...

3. The Fort - This is definitely my favorite branch, so classy... hehehe... I also like the interior design, paikot sya and so wide. The machines were all new and daming cute na girls... hehehe... Medyo masikip nga lang ang free weights area pero madali namang diskartehan. My favorite area was the stretching and abs areas, you will really have a place to make your six pack exercises. The shower rooms were cool naman but the cabinets of the locker room, I think it is an old one.

4. Greenhills - Isang beses pa lang ako nakakapunta dito. It was when I visited my former personal trainor Mawel. He wasn't expecting me to be there, he just had his operation shape up when I arrived there. May utang pa sya saking sessions, hehehe... One thing that I can say about this branch, ganda ng reception area, as in astig. But... the treadmill machines???!!! Ngak, mga luma! Masikip yung entire area for other machines. Also, if you want to drink, you need to go downstairs pa and it is so annoying kung wala kang dalang tumbler or gamit ka ng drinking fountain. But I think I liked the shower room, dami and malinis pa tingnan unlike sa iba na parang di nalilinis, hehehe... I'll make a visit again to this branch to see if there is an improvement.

5. ABS-CBN - It was a workout day with my bestfriend (check this to read more). He was expecting ABS-CBN stars that time but he failed to see even Bentong, hehehe... The place was okay naman, I just didn't like the cycling area because it was an open area! Pag malakas yung sound kelangan mo magtiis sa ingay pati sa sigawan nila. But I like the free weights area, malaki ha and the equipments are in order. The place is also very relaxing maybe because that time, wala masyadong tao and you can use the equipment you want to use. The sauna bath is okay naman and also the shower room, all is well.

Movie Fest

September was full of great movies and I got the chance to watch four of them!

1. 1408 - At first, I didn't get the story plot. I really didn't understand it. But on the second run, I realized the message of the movie. Not every single thing in this world has an explanation. Sometimes you just have to believe it and be warned by the experiences and events that happened to others. Try to understand the things because it is not always that you have an answer for every questions. Like the lead star (John Cusack), he was not believeing in ghosts until he experienced one. The sound and visual effects were really good, nakakatakot and at the same time, nakakagulat. I also loved the twist of the story and the drama behind a family that is living in sorrow.

2. The Brave One - Whew! I love the plot of this film, REVENGE! This is my favorite plot! hehehe... The movie showed mixed emotions and attack on each scenes. There's a part that was really heart warming, a part where an action must be done to those people who hurt you, a part where sometimes you need to smile. I loved the ending of the movie! That sometimes, you just have to be fair to the other's feelings and it was so greatful to help the one in need even if it is out of legality. I was attached by the actiong prowess of Jodie Foster, galing talaga niya. She is such a versatile actress. Kudos to the director of this movie for bringing out the very best of her.

3. I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry - Really cool film, so funny! The movie showed the ugly and the funny side of being gay. I think the movie also made an attack to the gay icons that were still in the closet. But in totality, the movie was about a father who just wanted to make his children be always at safe through financial stability. Also, it tackles the theme of real friendship, that in everything you do, whether if it is good or bad, there will always be one person that will support you and will make you realize the positive and negative side of your actions. Whew! I just missed my bestfriend! Anyway, for sure you will love this movie and will make you laugh until the end.

4. Resident Evil: The Extinction - Though the movie seems to be short, it was a full packed action film! Still, Mila Jovovich is so hot! Hehehe... The first scene was definitely really hot. I have seen the past two parts and based on the ending on this third part, I think (not sure) that there will be a fourth installment to this series. I loved the part na magugulat ako, napapatayo ako sa upuan... hehehe... The cannibalism scenes were so nakakadiri pero okay lang... Loved the makeup for all the zombies and of course the action scenes made by Mila... I also loved the ending!
