2013 - Thank you.

Dubai Women's Run 2013

  • Back in 2009 I was on medication for hyperthyroidism.  I obeyed the doctor's advice, and after 12 months, the Doctor was happy that I don't need to take medicines.  After that, I choose to stay healthy by eating the right food.  Quarterly, I visit the Doctor to check up on me and he was pretty happy that I am doing great.  Until 2013, he checked me up and happily announced that I am doing well and I can visit him every year instead of quarterly.  It was a big improvement.  I am happy for the great news!  Thank God!
  • My weight drops from 75 kgs. to 60 kgs. by dedicating myself to go to the gym everyday.  I do cardiovascular, alternating, stationary cycling, running and a little of weight lifting) for 20 to 30 minutes.

Sign of wealth,
owning a decent gadget

  • Stocks.  It took me 3 months to research and study the good and the bad in stocks and as soon as I confirmed that I am ready for the consequences, I took the path and invested.  So far, I am happy with the results.
  • Nationalbonds.  I have started this on 2008 but stopped on the same year as the economy was really bad all over the world.  I continued it on 2013 and keeping it rollin'.
  • Real Estate.  I bought my first condo unit in Philippines.

  • Reunited with my family, after 5 years.  Had an awesome 40 days vacation.

Feeling Blessed.  Feeling Happy.
Thank you so much 2013.

True Happiness

“Saying yes to happiness means learning to say no to the things and people that stress you out.” – Thema Davis

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”- Frederick Keonig

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” – Mahatma Gandhi

”I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.”- Martha Washington

“Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits. – Thomas Jefferson

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Dubai International Film festival

Glady's and I had a wonderful Friday.  We went to Dubai Mall to buy some things we need and suddenly there was an urge to nibble some sushi.  We then went to Honyaki Restaurant in Madinat Jumeirah.  Little did we know, it was DIFF as well.  We were seated on the perfect view.
