My Personal Top Places To Eat

I define a favorite place to eat as somewhere I'd go back to again and again. It's somewhere where I'd drag people to go particiularly if they've never been there. It's that fine balance of price, taste, quality and quantity that earns it it's place in this list. Will keep...

Running For The Land Of The Rising Sun

When GREENTENNIAL RUN announced the RUN FOR JAPAN, I just knew I was going to run in that event. I was a photographer with the PIJazzFest crew when they did the JAM FOR JAPAN early April at the Ayala Museum. A benefit concert for our Japanese Kindred that raised 13Million...

HYUNDAI RUN FOR A CAUSE 2011 – The Best Runs In Life Are Free!

You can't get more inexpensive than the HYUNDAI Run. It was FREE! It was organized to celebrate Hyundai's 10th year anniversary here in the Philippines. As expected, runners from all over joined in droves. For a run with no entry fee, the organization was kick-ass. First, the singlet sizes were...

Lactobacilli Shirota Strain!

My uncle mentioned in passing that he saw that there was a Yakult run in the papers. I love Yakult. And so I set out to find more. Turns out that the main event was a 10-mile run and it was NOT going to be held at Bonifacio Global City....

Kinetic Shakespeare

I was able to catch Anton Juan's Screen: Macbeth this weekend and I wasn't expecting much. It's Shakespeare... It's Macbeth... Now where'd I put my pillow? I was really expecting a snoozefest given that I had yet to see a decent staging of a period drama hereabouts. I'm happy to...

Run United 1 2011 aka RunRio showing off

Runrio is the country's premiere running organizer. Period. No Erase. If there's one thing that Run United 1 was, it was a showcase for RunRio's bells and whistle that makes their runs totally stand out. World-Class even. I almost forgot to register for this run. I ended up signing up...

Running On EDSA was too good to be true

Running on EDSA was too good to be true. Well, it was too good to be true. I thought that this run would run a significant length of EDSA. White Plains to Robinson's Galeria is NOT a significant length of EDSA!!!! But still, any route outside of Bonifacio Global City...

Skyway! Ba-bleah!

I trained for the Condura run. I really did. I was increasing mileage as early as December. I was supposed to run my first 10k in March of 2011. But then moved it up to Feb because I thought that a 10k Skyway run was going to be a very...

That Pacq-ing book…

I got this book with the intention of passing it on to one of my uncles. My uncle is a devout fanatic of Congressman Pacquiao and I thought he'd get a kick out of the book (he did). I got a kick out of the book too. The book, as...
