Fun is Not Optional!

Our company had its annual family day in Dreamplay in City of Dreams, Manila.  The place is best for young kids, and even for kids at heart like me! I thoroughly enjoyed the activities, and so did my kids. It was indeed a fun bonding moment!

Hilarious Translation Fails!

Last week, I bought a power bank from Lazada at a ridiculously low price, and buy 1 take at that. I don't expect this to be of high quality, but just to give me my money's work, and so far, it  has been doing just that. Anyway, the safety precautions and instructions are always a source of delight! Some you understand because the translation was literal, and some are just too literal that ends up being hilarious! 

My favorite is: "During the charging and using of the power bank, mild fever is a normal phenomenon!" 
Now, I am afraid to use lest I develop a fever! 

Hahahaha! And here is another one. Its for hair straightener.

Ma Mon Luk

After more than a decade of living in Quezon City, I was finally able to eat at one of the institutions when it comes to mami-Ma Mon Luk.  The branch is locate in Quezon Ave near Banawe.  It was a Thursday, and a little past 8pm, so there were not many people inside.  We ordered 2 Original Mami (Large Bowl) and Siopao Asado and Bola Bola. 

Actually, the mami was nothing to write home about.  It was okay, or maybe my expectations were a bit high.  But the bola-bola siopao was great, and I am sure to come back here, if only for the siopao.  Unfortunately, we didn't to try the siomai as they have run out already.

Anyway, the place was really old, and while the ambiance was as expected of a Chinese eatery, I was a little bit disappointed because it does not appear to be that clean. I will just stop there and say, it was still a good eating experience and maybe, I will just come again for the siopao and siomai.

Goal: Half Marathon

One of my goals is to be able to run a marathon before I turn 40 next year.  So I want to be able to do this soon.  I have run several 5K's and 10K's, and I do run for exercise so I am not such a newbie. But I know that running a half-marathon requires proper training.  And I plan to do this very soon!

In the meantime, I will try to run a 5K-10K at least 4x a week to prepare my body to a much longer run.  I have seen older people do it so its not impossible
