Gym Buff No More
Posted on: 29th of November 2008 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

Back in Manila, I enjoyed going to the gym a lot. I would go mostly after work hours at least three times a week. Somehow going to Body Jam classes (yay dancing!) and doing extra work out after became a great stress-reliever. I didn’t have to refer to any Hydroxycut hardcore review to be able to follow a workout routine, because the cardio from Body Jam was enough to keep me fit.

I just finished my second week at work, and I realized that I need to do some workout (even light workout will do), in order to feel more relaxed and rejuvenated the following day. I really need to get off my butt and strive to become more fit again. =P

Clinique Freebies

I signed up for the Clinique mailing list when I bought my foundation last month, and to my surprise, I received a card in the mail a few days ago. In it was a coupon for some free goodies.

I picked up these free babies at the Clinique counter in Bugis Junction today:

A Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick in Blushing Nude and a small tube of 7-Day Scrub Cream.

I love free stuff! =)

Photography
Posted on: 28th of November 2008 | Under: Geek Talk

I’m not a professional photographer. In fact, my knowledge in taking photographs is actually quite limited. But, I still like taking photos anyway. I think that with digital cameras around (SD and compact flash cards too), a lot of people, including myself, have already developed a strong liking for it.

The popularity of toy cameras (lomo love!) has also added my fondness for it, because I enjoy the thrill of snapping away and being wonderfully surprised with the developed films.

I haven’t touched my toys in months. My Polaroid cam is back in Manila, while my Holga and Vivitar are just sitting in my electronics drawer. I should really take them out one of these days.

Back to Manual Drafting
Posted on: 24th of November 2008 | Under: Artsy Fartsy, Geek Talk

I haven’t touched a T-square or any other drafting material in over two years. I have already shifted to using AutoCAD, because it’s really a whole lot easier and faster to use. But, now I’m back to the old-school manual drafting, because my new work doesn’t have a licensed copy of AutoCAD yet.

I have been reconnected with my lovely drafting supplies: triangles, scales, tech pens, clutch pencils, rulers, etc. (no horse supplies). It was fun for the first few days, but the whole process has become quite a tiresome job already. Changes to the floor plans and detailed drawings are being made every single day, and being able to alter them with a few clicks on the computer is just so much more efficient than having to re-do an entire drawing manually.
