Back in July, I decided to cut out processed/refined sugar from my diet. It was originally supposed to be a three-week long sugar smackdown but I decided to make it a lifestyle; permanent, albeit not very strict (in the sense that I have cheat days; I did eliminate all processed sugar the first three weeks).
By the way: I must mention as early as now that I never gave up beer. I did some research (on the internet lol) and found that most beers don’t have processed sugar. If anyone there has a reputable source saying otherwise, please let me know.
First things first: RIP Steve Jobs. I woke up this morning to my Facebook feed blowing up with related status updates. I told my mom the news and even she knew who he was.
I’ve had this entry in my drafts for a while and have had a few people ask me to post my iPhone apps. I thought today would be an appropriate day to publish this. I also think I’m done with the iPhone app walkthrough I’ve been doing for work. This day can only be completed by having enough money in my MacBook Pro fund… not counting on that happening today, though. Anyway, enough of that; here are my current apps:
The good thing about having a blog is that you don’t have to rack your brain to remember what exactly you were doing a year ago. This time last year, I was getting ready to model lingerie for House of Vanita, still had dark hair, was dedicated to working on my fitness, and had no clue what I wanted for myself, career-wise (rather— I never gave it much thought).
I can’t believe it’s been a year and it’s alarming how time flies once the -ber months hit; 2011 is almost over!
I haven’t been posting outfit-y photos lately for several reasons:
-my clothes bore me
-I’ve been lazy (too lazy to make an effort, too lazy to take photos, etc etc)
-my 50mm lens broke again. This actually happened in Singapore because I was careless with it. Being able to walk around with your dSLR in full view and not worry about getting mugged is such a nice feeling. I had my camera slung around my right shoulder while walking and shopping and probably banged it around shelves etc a few times =/
-my camera remote’s battery is dead (I got a fresh one this afternoon)
-I’m out of clothes
First meal of the trip: some sausage bacon supreme muffin thing from McDonald’s. Very exciting, I know. Our flight got in past 2am and the Swenson’s and Toastbox at Changi International Airport didn’t have the food we wanted so it’s not like we had much of a choice!
This year, I’ve had nine different hairstyles.
Nine. That’s like one new look per month. Thankfully, this latest “new look” is just a little trim, giving my hair some breathing room in between bleach and dye jobs. To be honest, I almost dyed my hair Blood Red on Sunday; I found out that afternoon that this year’s UAAP cheer dance champs— the UP Pep Squad— all bleached their hair blonde for the competition. I thought I was just imagining getting more looks/glances than usual while standing along Katipunan!
Anyway, I didn’t have time to go Blood Red and I decided to try to keep the blonde until October for my Halloween costume. I did get about three inches chopped off and had a much needed hot oil (it didn’t do much, considering how fried my hair is). I think I need to get the ends thinned a bit with a razor since it tends to get poofy as the day progresses.
