You know you’re on a diet when you wake up from a nightmare — one where you were eating chocolate. I’m talking a lot of chocolate and other sweets haha!
Anyway, I’m glad I chose Medical City’s The Center for Wellness and Aesthetics for my executive check-up — excellent service.
I’ll have to modify my lifestyle, but I figure if I was able to quit smoking cold turkey six years ago, I can also eat healthy food and exercise more.
Social media actually helped me a lot in quitting smoking, because every day I would tweet and post a Facebook status update saying how many days it’s been since I gave up smoking. For instance: “Day 1 without ciggies”.
Making a public commitment via social media helped me, because I didn’t want to have to tweet or post that I had already started smoking again. It also helped that people would encourage me by replying to my tweets, or commenting on my FB posts. In fact, some said they were even inspired to use the same method to try to give up smoking or develop a different healthy habit.
So, yeah, I’m making a public commitment to eating healthy food and exercising more.
Let’s do this!
We’ve landed a probe on a comet. Had a close encounter with Pluto. And have now discovered Mars has water.
Yup, science is awesome.
Here’s NASA’s announcement on its official Tumblr.
What would be the impact of the discovery of water on Mars? Check out this i09 article.

Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite authors. I’ve been meaning to start reading “1Q84” for a long time now.
Bought the Kindle edition sometime back and now reading it on the iOS app.
How about you, which book are you currently reading?
Do you love the taste of old school Magnolia Chocolait? You know, back when it came in a glass bottle? If you do, you should really try Cocio.
This chocolate milk drink from Denmark is a bit pricey, but it’s really good. I particularly love the Dark Chocolate Milk variant, which I understand was first launched in the Philippines.
So, yeah, that’s me inside the Hulkbuster!
How cool is this lifesize Hulkbuster? It’s supposed to be four meters high. Yup, over 13 feet!
Comicave Studios was such a badass to bring over this behemoth, which was one of the star attractions at AsiaPOP Comicon.
My 13-year-old daughter also climbed inside the Hulkbuster. Here’s her photo.
At the recently concluded AsiaPOP Comicon in Manila, I was fortunate to finally meet international cosplayer Linda Le, better known as Vampy Bit Me.
Vampy, who’s an American of Vietnamese descent, was one of the guests at AsiaPOP Comicon. I’ve been a fan of Vampy for years, having seen her cosplays online, particularly on IGN.
You can also read this What’s a Geek interview to find out more about Vampy.
Thanks for the photo and autograph, Vampy! And thanks to my wife Ellen for taking the pic.
