Red Mango

I'm thankful for all of the frozen yoghurt places that have sprouted all over the metro. Abet and I are struggling to bring our waistlines and our weight down, and I'm glad that there's now a heathier dessert option other than the Starbucks fraps or Chocolat cakes that we used to favor after our dinner dates.

Red Mango

Our favorite used to be White Hat (Rob Manila and MoA) until we discovered Red Mango in Trinoma. Those are our default orders. Mine is medium green tea + blueberry + mango + peach. Abet's is almonds + banana nut crunch--he leaves the Hershey's chocolate chips on his bowl for me.

I can have this everyday. Ü
I can't have yoghurt everyday. Not in the next two weeks, at least. I also can't have bread, pasta, rice either, and my favorite things in the world are not allowed: corn, watermelon, and chocolate. I had this crazy idea to go on the South Beach Diet, and I start today:

I bought the book so I'll do it right. It basically says that I can't eat any of the things that make me happy for two weeks. No fruits and sweets.

Good luck to me!

Will I be The Biggest Loser?

Four of my officemates and I are aiming to be The Biggest Loser. We weighed in at the office clinic yesterday, we'll weigh in again two months later, and the person who loses the most number of pounds will take home the P4,000.00 pot. I tried to convince them that the contest should be the biggest percentage of body weight lost, but they insist on most number of pounds. Fine by me.

I weighed in at a whopping 143 lbs. yesterday. Eeeew. I've been trying to bring my weight down since our 4-day Davao trip where we ate more than a week's worth of food--to no avail. Of course I'm not dropping any pounds--I can't stop stuffing my face silly, and I barely exercised for the last three months. I need motivation--P4kiao worth of motivation.

If I don't win, my alkansiya will be 1,000 one-peso coins less. I won't mind if I lose at least 10 lbs. If I lose that much, I'll consider myself a winner.

We'll see how this goes. This should be fun.

I want to go back to Davao for this...

Blugre Durian Coffee
Blugré's Durian Gatchpuccino

Abet and I had dessert at Blugré Coffee in Matina Town Square after an inasal dinner at a Penong's branch nearby, and I was able to try this delightful signature coffee concoction. It was heaven in a little blue paper cup, I swear. I can still remember savoring every sip of that buttery durian coffee with real durian bits.

I wonder if there's anything similar here in Manila.

You really won't realize...

just how much a person means to you until he's out of your life.

Miss na kita, Jepoi.

Miss ko na ang mga benta mo sa 39th floor pantry ng RCBC Tower 2. Hindi masarap ang pagkain sa cafeteria dito sa Solaris. Napipilitan tuloy akong magbaon.

I'm already crossing my fingers. And praying really hard.

His will be done.
