Headache And P90X Training

Today I woke up early with a mild headache. Even though I do have a mild headache, I still continue my early workout routine. I’ve mostly finish my 4×3 push-up reps, and some ab core cruncher. I usually followed the P90X (a commercial exercise which is popular around 2007’ish) routine.

Later afternoon, I went back to coding my own project. Then I saw a YT (YouTube) video on how to dance the hip-hop style. Tried the a few beginner dance step, it was easy. It was just 3 form dance pose routine that anyone could do. I dance and followed the tutorial for about an hour and practice it for another hour or so. Its not that hard so I didn’t sweat a lot, one thing I notice is I’m kinda slow or having some delay when following the dance instructions and doing the formations.

At night, mostly I just worked on my own project then at dinner time just ordered some food on a fast food chain. I think that sums up all the things I did this day.

I’ve Discovered 8D Surround Sound! And It’s Amazing!

Today I’ve started doing some exercise (some basics stretching and push ups). Then after that I’ve played some music on my laptop. Most of the music I’ve played were EDM (Electronic Dance Music) genre on 8D surround sound, I’ve tried to dance to it but I failed horribly.

At around 8am, I’ve started cleaning the outer room. I’ve moped the tile floors till it became white again. Four hours passed after cleaning, a Shopee (an e-commerce site that is popular on Southeast Asia) delivery guy arrived to deliver a package that I’ve ordered last week. You know what is interesting in that event is when I asked the price, the delivery guy said its 215 pesos. I went back into my room to get my money pouch, I’ve checked my phone and to my disbelief that the actual price was 200 pesos only. I’ve told him about the price indicated on the app, suddenly he changed his statement. What the fudge, that cheap sore guy trying to rip me off.

At 3 PM PST (Philippine Standard Time), I’ve started to work on my day job. Then at the evening started to code back to my own project. Its around 2 AM now next day as I write this journal.

Thoughts Of You (For Joane)

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.

— Neil Gaiman in The Kindly Ones.

Is it ok if I took some of your time?
Is it ok if I held you awhile
For in your arms I’m always home
To pull you close and whisper in your ear
And tell you our feelings are nothing to fear.

Is it ok if I were to replace
All the men in your past that just wouldn’t do
And vow to be faithful and always be true?

Is it ok if I took the part of being your man?
Is it ok if I opened my heart?
Is it ok if I make you smile?
Is it ok if I took some of your time?

To tell you there’s nothing I’d rather do
Than spend my whole life loving you…
Always smile 🙂

Know that when everything crumbles, I will not.
Missing you right now.

DNA And As A Biologist

Software Engineering might be science; but that’s not what I do. I’m a hacker, not an engineer.

— Jamie Sawinski.

A quick fact about me is I’ve studied B.S. Biology before and taken the course of BIO 16N (DNA Structures). One of the most important thing that I’ve learned was DNA will always start at a specific codon which is AUG. The AUG is the start codon otherwise no protein will be synthesized, then there are only 3 types of stop codon which is UAG, UGA, UAA. This has been a short post as I only want to remember this minor detail.

Staring At The Sky

You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.

— Bob Marley.

Just caught myself smiled again for no reason
A smile that could probably mean one thing;
Thinking of you my beloved dearest
Always on my mind running all day long

I wouldn’t mind waking up in morning
To check every messages I’ve got from you;
A message that always do put a smile on my face
Even on the most difficult time of my life

You fill my heart with joy each and every day
Just like a star that brightens up the night sky;

Right now I’m staring at this beautiful sky,
Hoping that you were also looking at the same sky
That same sky that connects both of us

I wish I could talk till the end of day
But now I’m running out of things to say
So I’ll end by the line you probably know
I Love You more than what I could show

Thank you for sharing that happiness to everyone
Smile my one and only 🙂

I Will Be Here

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

— Dr. Seuss.

When your sad and depressed,
I will be here to put a smile on your face.

When your angry and frustrated,
I will be here to calm you down.

When your hurt and in tears,
I will be here to wipe them away and mend the pain.

When your lonely and have no one,
I will be here to comfort you.

When your feeling unloved and unwanted,
I will be here to tell you how very important you are.

When your having a bad day and need to lash out,
I will be here to let you let off steam, you can yell at me.

When there is something on your mind that you need to say,
I will be here to listen and understand.

When your lost in confusion,
I will be here to help you figure things out.

When you feel like your going crazy,
I will be here to bring you back to sanity.

When you are so overwhelmed and need to get away,
I will be here with open arms so we can runaway together.

When your scared and frightened,
I will be here to protect you and make you feel safe.

When you are full of worries,
I will be here to worry with you.

I Want To Be With You (For Joane)

She may not be the most popular or prettiest but if you love her and she makes you smile… what else matters?

— Bob Marley.

Whenever I saw you, is like the stars lighting up my sky
You call me and check me everyday,
You just don’t know how much I appreciate it
You’ve seen my past yet you’d never leave

So remove all your worries, for my intention is real
If you love me till your last breath,
I assure you that I’ll never leave your side
And I will love you ’til the rest of my life

I love you. Always do smile.
When you think you have nothing left,
I swear to you, I’ll always be by your side.

For Her Smile (For Joane)

If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy. … Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.

— Bob Marley.

I saw a lovely lady outside the door.
She always wave and smile at me.
When I am with her,
Her smile warms my very soul.
To see that gorgeous smile,
That always makes me fall.

As she gave me a puzzle,
We played it for a few
Joy whenever I finish the puzzle,
As I would see her smile once more

As I walk on the first level,
I bump my feet as I saw her upstairs.
Like an angel going down,
To save me from despair.
Hoping that day wouldn’t end.
As she’d smile and laugh with me.

If ever I were given a chance,
I’d protect that smile.
That smile that change,
My whole perspective in life.

When you think you have nothing left,
I swear to you, I’ll always be there beside you.
Thank you!

And always smile.
You probably don’t know,
But you make me and,
Everyone around you happy.

Naughty Stories Night

Perhaps the best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.

— Dean Acheson.

This is one personal journal/memo for me a SOL (Slice Of Life). So to start one evening on clear night sky, my girlfriend who was currently staying on province said she’s on the mood. At the time, where far from each others place and we only message each other through couple’s app. She asked if I could give her a naughty story of what I would do to her when we see each other (that’ll be happening in 2 days time).

I imagined doing her in multiple places and events. After that, I tried to jack off while creating a surreal story of what I would do to her. Piece by piece sending her the story through the app, she read it and guess what she fell asleep. LOL (Laugh Out Loud) and I don’t know if the story was kinda bit boring though. Anyways, imagining her makes me feel horny again. I’ll just call it a day.

As We Roam Hong-Kong

I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could.

— Evel Knievel.

I never knew traveling was something I would really want, but here I am craving for it.

This is a continuation of my travel to Hong Kong this December, check out the first article here.

We stayed in a place called Li Cheng Guesthouse in the district of Tsim Sham Tsui. I must say the place is clean and well organized, the room was a bit small but for me its good enough. After resting for a bit, me and my girlfriend went to a nearby exchange then roamed few districts riding MTR. The ride was a breeze compared to when riding railways in Philippines.

Our first destination was Sham Shui Po, what we did check is the Golden Computer Arcade to check game consoles. I was tempted to buy a Nintendo Switch there as prices is much more cheap compared to large retailers.

Next, we traveled in Central to ride trams (quick fact: trams in hong kong first operated in 1904). The cost of the ride is $2 HKD end to end. It was like going back in time riding those trams. We also went to several establishments and that ends our first day in HK.

To be continued…
