I Am A Lazy Shopper And This Is How I Shop

Clothes are not my thing. Fashion is not something I wrap my mind on.

I'm just your average guy wearing the kind of clothes I am comfortable with.

That also comes with one major problem -- I am a lazy shopper.

That means I really don't like going to the mall fitting clothes, checking out apparel, shoes and all those stuff.

Just ask my girlfriend. Shopping is the last thing she'd do when she is with me.

One time my mother asked me to choose any apparel I want. She would buy it to me for free.

I declined. Yes, I did.

The reason? I don't like fitting clothes.

Crazy right?

You may be wondering, "How the heck does he get all his clothes?"

The answer is online shopping.

I am a huge fan of Zalora and I buy my stuff from there.

The good thing about this shopping site is they provide exact body measurements for you to check if your clothes and jeans would fit without even putting them on.

I have my body measurements ready, I just browse through Zalora's iPhone app and shop from there! Items usually arrive in less than a week and I haven't had any problems so far.

Thank God for the age of Internet and online shopping.

Lazy shoppers like me finally have a way of acquiring clothes our way. :)

Tuesday, July 05, 2016 and Time Doctor in Bohol, Philippines

It was my second time in Bohol and this time it was for our annual company gathering. 

There's something about this place that really captivates me. 

The island is very laid back, the people are very nice and you'll see nature at its best.

Plus, we stayed at a very luxurious and excellent hotel named Bellevue.

It couldn't get any better than that. 

I got to meet my colleagues from Time Doctor and We got to bond as a team which is a very important thing especially for us remote workers.

We also had some key meetings and workshops which gave us some valuable insights and skills moving forward. These are all valuable especially that the company is continuing to grow.

I love the fact that my work allows me to get to relax and experience places like this. 

Looking forward to the next one!

Here are some video snaps from the trip:

Single and Happy

Definitely not me.

I'm happy but not single anymore.

I'm just inspired to write my thoughts on this matter after watching the movie "The Achy Breaky Hearts."

Some people feel that they need to have a partner to be happy. Some rush to get married. Some think they would only be complete when they are in a relationship.

But, we definitely have to remove that stereotype or way of thinking.

It is definitely possible to be single and happy.

You have the world to enjoy. You have only yourself to improve and think about.

It is better to wait for the right time rather than rush to get the wrong one.

Stay in love, people. But, if you are single do not rush.

Live your life happy and don't depend on other people to make you complete.

Even The Best Fall Down Sometimes

Today, I witnessed probably one of the greatest upsets in professional basketball.

I'm talking about how Game 7 of the 2015-2016 NBA Finals turned out. The Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a 3-1 deficit and became the NBA champions. They defeated the Golden State Warriors who had a historic season with the most wins (73) in NBA history.

I was never really a fan of basketball. But, when Stephen Curry and #DubNation started making headlines and history I took notice.

They were splashing threes, making impossible shots and dominating the league.

I joined the bandwagon and fell in love with the Warriors.

But, during the Finals things didn't turn out well for them. They faced the unstoppable Kyrie Irving and King James who were also determined to give the Cavs their first Championship.

The Warriors' historic season ended with an epic loss in a finals decision game.

It was heartbreaking to see them lose in their home court. It was devastating.

But, that was a good reminder that really even the best fall down sometimes. 

You can't stay on top all the time. Things could change in an instant. Circumstances could change in a moment.

That's exactly what happened to Steph and his team.

At this point, what matters for them is how they will bounce back next season.

I'm sure it's time to move on and look forward to making another historic run next season.

I just hope NBA's next season would be as exciting as it was this year.

Moments Matter

The picture above sums up our date tonight. It was taken inside a private movie house.

It may look like a bad night in the picture but it really wasn't.

Me and my girlfriend were both really tired tonight.

We both have our own careers. We worked the whole week. We both got a busy schedule. And, we only have Friday night to relax and chill. 

However, this week was pretty intense and was filled with so much work. Our bodies were just dead tired when Friday night came.

But, that didn't matter. 

We both could have skipped date night. We could have just crashed our beds and slept at home after a really busy week.

But, we didn't. 

We decided to still spend time for each other because we know that moments matter

Tonight was just another one to add to the thousand of moments and memories we have already created together.

I guess that's how we managed to stay happy together after all these years. 

By the way, we had some good nachos too!
