I so badly need to lose weight. I just had my annual checkup and my doctor said that I am in the borderline already of having high blood pressure. My doctor recommended a diet plan for me which I have to observe so I don’t have to take maintenance meds, which will I will be taking for my entire lifetime if I start on it, to maintain an acceptable blood pressure.
My doctor also recommends doing exercise that is why I started doing brisk walking in the morning and in the afternoon before I go home. It is just a simple exercise and I am using an iPhone app called Walking Star to calculate my steps, my speed and the calories that I burned in doing it. There is actually a lot of iPhone app that I can use and one of the recommendations of my friend is the C25K running program. I wanted to try this as I have friends already who have been under this program and they really loose a weight. But first I have to buy a good running shoes and smart feet insoles before I can start with the program.
I need to lose at least 10 pounds and I don’t think Calorie Counting Diet program is not enough. Hopefully, I will be able to start with this fitness regimen and be able to sustain it
Viber is our new twitter. My online friends and I used to hang out in Twitter where we chat and talk but we find Twitter to be overcrowded already that we have to find a new venue where we can openly talk about anything under the sun. And so our solution, we created a group chat in Viber.
I love this new group chat as we don’t have to worry if other people will see our conversation as we have limited the group to our set of friends only. So we can talk about anything and everything, from rants, to good news and bad news and even showbiz news.
Just like yesterday, our topic was the family feud of the Baretto clan and our views on whether Reese should go to a Malibu alcohol treatment center.
Viber has been a part of my day to day routine now because it is here where I get to talk to the closest persons in my life.

There are some items of clothes that take a bit of bravery to wear: crop tops, bikinis, short shorts and bodycon dresses. If you’re like me, you’ll scoff yourself silly throughout the festive season and then freak out come spring as you’ve only got a few months to tone your tum before the summer. Then I remember that I don’t have to be super skinny to still pull of an outfit, and let’s face it, I’ll end up eating a few ice creams during the warmer months anyway! So this year I will be facing my fears and wearing these items of clothes; I don’t want to miss out on a trend just because of body confidence. So if you’re in a similar position to me, here are my tips about where to wear your bodycon dress this summer...
If you still feel a little bit shy, perhaps a nightclub is an ideal place to start on your body confidence mission. The room will be darker, and there will be so many bodies in the place that you won’t be in the limelight quite so much! If your friends are all wearing similar outfits you’ll fit right in anyway. And you never know, you might even want to post your photos to Facebook or Instagram when you realise how great you all look.
There are some longer length bodycon dresses that are suitable for the office. You might want to look for one in a “midi” length to make sure you aren’t baring too much skin - you don’t want to be an office distraction after all. A smart blazer will give you some extra coverage, and you can complete your outfit with great heels and some jewellery. There’s a good chance that at least one of your work colleagues will ask you where you got your dress so prepare to answer lots of questions!
As long as you don’t have the most expensive tickets that require you to wear fascinators and the like, a bodycon dress is a good choice for the races. You might choose to wear some killer stilettos and a small hairpiece, but your dress will certainly be the “wow” part of your outfit. If it is going to be a warm day, remember that wearing black might make you a bit too warm, so choose a summery colour and run with it.
Pair your bodycon dress with a shrug or thin cardigan for the ideal dinner date outfit. It really is possible to make this dress work from day time into the evening simply by swapping your accessories - if you want to give the appearance of two different outfits, consider neck scarves and bright belts as well as thinking about your choice of shoes.

Sweet Royals experienced its first ever weekday event last April 8 at the Blue Leaf events place in McKinley Hill.
It was a Hawaiian inspired candy buffet for Zarenne's first birthday party and this was our setup:
I am still waiting for more pictures from the official photographer of the event as our staff was not able to bring a camera to take pictures of the setup.
We are amazed and thankful at how Sweet Royals is growing. We have had a number of events already for the start of 2013 and we can't wait for more.
This reminds me that we have to find a business card printing online service so we can order business cards to give out to inquiring guests every time we have an event.
Our next project is to partner with party planner friends so they can get bookings on behalf of us.
Thank you to all our loyal clients and friends who have been supporting Sweet Royals.

My mom’s birthday will be next week and it falls on a weekend too so my siblings and I are planning for a simple gathering for her. It will just be a simple party and we will only invite my mom’s siblings and their family over to our house. We can order food for delivery or my aunt, who is the family’s cook, can cook the food for the party.
Of course for the entertainment, a sure hit would be a videoke so I am looking for the best condenser mic so we will be ready for our videoke session.
We only got a week to prepare so we better finalize everything as soon as possible. It will just be a simple party but the presence of all her siblings, her mom and us will really make her birthday really special.
