WishList – The Sony 4K HDR Bravia X8500D

Like experiencing the entire world right outside your window.


Since I wrote an article about the Sony a5000, a mirrorless camera, I would also like to talk about how I would like to view the photos that come from it. Yes, I can look at them through the viewfinder, my smartphone, my computer or even on my flat screen TV, but they will hardly do the shots justice if they can’t show the photos in all their glory. For the second half of my WishList post, here is the Sony x8500d 4K UHD HDR Android TV. Continue reading “WishList – The Sony 4K HDR Bravia X8500D”

My Health Advocacy Part 23

The first trimester is considered by many to be the most difficult, with the third trimester being less difficult only because there, it ramps up towards the last month instead of building up in the first month. In Hazel’s case, the hormones kicked in on the second month, with her being inexplicably angry at her sister, Jamie for a whole week. Must be why some people say Nixi looks like Jamie.

My Health Advocacy Part 22

The Journey to Childbirth Chapter Two

These changes were done to further lower the chances of miscarriage, to strengthen the baby, and to keep her immune system in tiptop shape. Continue reading “My Health Advocacy Part 22”

“Do you want to do the Spartan Program?”

Do keep in mind that the TR90 kit costs Php100,000 or ~$2,000 with a member’s discounted price of Php70,000 or ~$1,350, no small sum in a third world country like the Philippines. Continue reading “My Health Advocacy Part 20 (After Photo at The End of The Post)”

Jar Entry #65 – That Smile

Nixi is the perfect antidote for the fatigue of a long day. People say that your exhaustion disappears when you get home and see your baby after work. I thought it was only a story but I can now definitely say that it’s true. All of it. Continue reading “Jar Entry #65 – That Smile”

Jar Entry #58 – My Health Advocacy Part 9

The Journey to Pregnancy Chapter One.

The reason why I called this series of posts My Health Advocacy is because the events that I described shaped the knowledge and mindset I have concerning health and maintaining it. From proper nutrition, to exercise, to fertility and pregnancy, to supplements and their ilk, my interest in being healthy is an integral part of my being.
