Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test: Be a food critic for a day!

About Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test

Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test is a gathering of different concessionaires who give a free taste of their goodies that are already in the market, have just been launched or will soon be launched. The atmosphere is festive and everybody has a good time giving in to all kinds of gustatory delights. Visitors get to rate the food and the food concessionaire that prepared it on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the highest.

Me being in this event is a long serendipitous a-day-in-the-life-of-a-blogger story.  It’s an “Ako na!” (or as they say in English, “Me already!”) moment, one that merits its own post.

I’m so excited! If you personally know me and my OC tendencies, you already know I’ll be uber methodological methodical (Thanks Rae!) about this. This being my first time, I already have a spreadsheet in preparation for this 10-hour long foodie mania! Hahaha! Para ano pa’t naging PMP? :-P (Now what to wear…)

So who’s going? Sound off in the comments section so we can meet up! I hope to see you guys there! :-D


Coincidentally, this is my 100th post. Yey to me!

And oh, by the way, Lori, thanks for hooking me up with Spanky. Very much appreciated. ;-)

The WS&J Project Week 13: Of running, yogilates and spinning

Quick post in preparation for a re-energized WS&J project next week. Right Rae and Jason? :-D


I ran my worst 10K ever.

Sub-one hour where fort art thou?

It isn’t as bad as it sounds though. It’s still a respectable one hour and five minutes, and, considering how relatively unconditioned I was for the race, I’d say I’m still in good shape.


Ok. Let me get this out of my chest first: Jonathan Urla, you are INSANE.

The goal. No. Really.

I actually miss the two-hour Ashtanga sessions I had in Yoga Manila, but I have to be practical (yoga club rates at work is waaaaaay cheaper). I’m finding Yogilates to be hardcore and challenging though. I hope I get the hang of it soon.


So I finally did it. I finally bought my own stationary bike.

Don't mind the ugly floor. :-P Oooh! I've used it thrice in one week already. Woot!

The only thing I’m missing is the energy I get when spinning with a group and with an instructor (Teacher Emy and GB! I miss you and our spinning class!).

In other news, I am utterly amazed at how I haven’t gained a single pound after going through all of these.

Dear body. Keep it up. :-D
