The Great UP Sunday Picnic Brunch

H@ppy Feet @ Great UP run
It was my first time to run under the trees of the famous UP oval for the Great UP Run. Now I understand why a lot of runners do their training runs here because of the scenic route and the shade offered by the trees. I'm starting to become a run-aholic like my friends from the H@ppy Feet running group.

H@ppy Feet Picnic @ Great UP run
H@ppy Feet organized a picnic near the lagoon in UP as a bonding moment for the group. It turned out this was one of the best Sunday Picnic Brunch I ever had.

The Great UP 10k Run

I recorded my personal best of 75 mins for a 10k which is still relatively slower than most runners. I aim to go sub-1 hour for my 10k run and sub-7mins/km pace. I lost 1030 calories but I think I gained more than that from the picnic. I'm running these days just to keep my current weight.

Five Cows Birthday

Five Cows
Five Cows Resto and Ice Cream Bar, 4th Floor Trinoma

We decided to take a day off on my birthday and spend it with the family in Trinoma. I was dying to try the ice cream concoctions in Five Cows, one of the hottest restaurants in Trinoma. Despite our earlier Trinoma misadventures, Trinoma is starting to show that it has more to offer even for people who live in Makati or Manila. It was now pleasant to shop around after 3 months of operation and the parking is still confusing but the security guards are more helpful.

We celebrated my birthday in La Maison, a French Casual Dining Restaurant originally based in Cebu and enjoyed the desserts at Five Cows Resto and Ice Cream Bar. On hindsight, we should have eaten our main course in Five Cows to avoid the disappointing lunch at La Maison. After lunch, we treated Aidan to a Time Zone entertainment where he rode a horse, plane, train, mini ferris wheel, and various cars. We also did a little bit of shopping for a white chic polo which I wore for the Olay White Radiance Launch last night at Decagon.

Thanks for all those who greeted via text and email! It actually sucks to be 33 and realize that I'm getting old. I just realized it when I attended the Olay white radiance event and most of the girls who attended are in the 18-20 age range.

Avenue Q Manila Cast with Princeton and Kate Monster

Avenue Q - Final Run June 2008. 5 Reasons Why You Should Not Miss the Opening Night of Avenue Q’s Final Run!

Avenue Q Manila Cast
Avenue Q Manila Cast!

I'm super excited to watch Avenue Q since January (see Avenue Q is coming to Manila). I've been listening to the entire soundtrack for a few weeks now. I always find myself singing "it sucks to be me" and "There's a fine, fine line between love,and a waste of time". I started noticing "schadenfreude" behaviors (happiness in the misfortune of others) and a little bit of racism in each one of us. I have adapted the motto, "You gotta go after the things you want while you're still in your prime." I'm going crazy over Avenue Q...

I've always wondered how the Princeton and Kate Monster love scene would look like performed by Rachel Alejandro and Felix Rivera. I'm sure Rachel Alejandro can do a good job in doing the Lucy the Slut song "I can make you feel special. When it sucks to be you." Can Aiza Sequerra portray Gary Coleman? I'm sure the pinoy cast would make us all proud similar to how Rent in Manila was better than its Broadway counterpart.

I can't wait to watch the first show. 12 days to go until opening day...

What is AVENUE Q about?
" AVENUE Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbors seem nice. There's Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fianceé Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his roommate Rod -- a Republican investment banker who seems to have some sort of secret; an Internet addict called Trekkie Monster; and a very cute kindergarten teaching assistant named Kate. And would you believe the building's superintendent is Gary Coleman?!? (Yes, that Gary Coleman.) Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life." (About Avenue Q the Musical)
