A Million Thanks

Thanks Grace for taking time to help me out start my Blogging Career. Needless to say, Im indebted to your kindness and for sharing your expertise. We both love to eat out and explore good places to eat so I hope, that in the coming days, we will be seeing more of each other.

When we get the chance (during your RDs), we should explore more good places to eat and relax over a cup of hot choco and yummy desserts.

As for our plans of traveling, i will try my very best to save up for our future trips. It is always fun to travel with you and embark on a new experience. What's next for us Singapore, Malaysia or Thailand? Hopefully, more fun travels to come!

A Goodnight’s Sleep

Lack of sleep makes one grumpy and cranky. One little slip up from the people around you and you may get all fired up! You become so sensitive to the things around you. Being sleep deprived and worn out causes one to become inattentive in classes, unproductive at work and distracted in whatever activities you may be engaged at.

So, what does it take to have a better sleep at night? What should we do to be all sparkly and bright for the day's activities ahead? Here are just some easy yet helpful things that one can surely do.

Exercise and Stretch. It has been said that Exercising 3-6 hours before going to sleep increases your body temperature and that the gradual decrease in temperature that follows help lull you into sleep. (A Stanford University School of Medicine study of 55 to 75 year old sedentary individuals who struggled with insomnia revealed that adding 20-30 minutes of exercise every other day cut the time needed to fall asleep in half and increased sleep time by nearly one hour.) Exercise is my form of stress reliever. It allows me to keep track and get to feel the changes of my body. It helps me be trim and the health benefits are great.

Alcohol & caffeine. According to studies, it takes about 2-hours to metabolize an ounce of alcohol, so try to limit intake to no more than one drink at least 2-hours before bedtime. Caffeine metabolizes far more slowly. A large cup of coffee could take up to 15 hours to fully metabolize, so the general rule is no caffeine after lunch. I am not so crazy with alcohol and coffee, so I will gladly settle with a cup of Hot Choco with marshmallows to make me doze off easily. It works wonder for me. It soothes me and relaxes my dead beat and aching muscles.

Read. Anything that catches my attention is worth my time. I love scanning old written reaction papers from school, browsing through magazines (lifestyle, Hollywood buzz, Home improvement, etc.) and books. There is so much potential in every story/news/article I read. It opens up all the doors to my imagination and allows me to wander in my thoughts.

Write. Write about something that stirs up your curiosity. Or make a journal and document your experiences for the day. All the emotions come pouring in and writing about something makes you see things in a different light. Writing can be very therapeutic and may very well lead you to closely exam your life. You can chronicle your day to day experiences or you may want to start a “To-do List” . You will be surprised when you read through your past journal entries. It's like walking down the memory lane. It definitely will make you a lot wiser... to be able to see and appreciate the developments (the unfolding of the drama) in your life.

Go to sleep at a consistent time. Consistency is the key. Establish a dependable sleeping time schedule and make it a priority to pursue it, even on weekends (or not?). It will help train your body clock to acknowledge your fixed sleeping schedule. Ultimately, following a schedule that works well for you may just do the trick. Stick to the plan and make good at it!

Vampires (Tribute to the upcoming TWILIGHT movie)

I have always been fascinated with the Dark world of the Supernaturals particularly Vampires. They are the masters of seduction and the whole predator-prey relationship is just too much to handle. Vampires are mysterious and they carry with them an innate sensuality (which helps in making their prey restless, I guess!). The way they seduce their unknowing preys, how they showcase of their mystical powers (super speed & strength) and the uncovering of their weak/blind spots (stakes, any sharp object, holy water, crucifixes, sunlight, UV rays and the likes) are sure hits in a vamp movie.

With the advent of Hollywood movies, vampires in the big screen are becoming less and less scary. Instead of portraying them as the Nosferatu in the 18th century as unattractive counts and countess, they are now vastly becoming hip royalties with an utterly modern sense of style (no more big boring black capes and heavy eyeliners).

Blame it on the big screen but I just love the Modern day vamp movies. In lieu of the TWILIGHT hype, I would like to give you a List of Hip and Amazing Vampire Movies / Series and even Anime that are worth to watch and scream for. You are in for some action packed, freaky yet entertaining must-see list.

Change (Kambyo)

A classmate of mine gave me compliments about my Blog and mentioned that the MOOD of my site is very EMO. I love reading my blog entries over and over again and be reminded that at some point (when reading them once more) I was able to go through all sorts of Emotions and was able to get through my experiences in one piece. I am a very emotional, sentimental and intuitive person and I think that is perfectly healthy.

Nevertheless, to break the ice, I plan on deviating from my usual themes. I plan to write more about Topics that astonishes me, some bits and pieces about my personal diversions. I want to keep you constantly hanging at the edge of your seats so I plan not to write about my experiences (except when there’s a need to do so) but I will share a bit of my world… the world that continuously intrigues me. Therefore, expect a little bit of eccentricity!
