I had my last vacation sa pinas noong Feb 1 - 23, I really gained a lot of weight that time hahaha! 165 lbs!... I was teased and demoralized, kasi ang tawag sa akin ng mga barkada ko eh 'paga' (swollen) o di kaya naman eh 'ma-utdo' (shorty), I was devastated those days....joke lang hehehe! (babaw naman)
But it turns out a wake up call for me to start taking care of myself na rin, I was too eager and decided to loose weight...
I started going to the gym on April 1... after two weeks of depriving myself to lots of fattening foods and spending 2 hours exercising almost every day (after work) I lost 15 lbs...sobrang saya ko hehehe! lalo akong nag enjoy sa pag gi-gym. Ang kinakain ko na lang eh saging at iniinom ko na lang ay gatas morning at evening, tapos muntik pa ako naging bulimic hahahaha! kasi after lunch lahat ng kinakain ko eh pilit kong isinusuka hahaha...I think dala na rin yon ng frustration ko sa pumayat hehehe!
It's been a month na rin and I managed to maintain my weight into 150 lbs which is my ideal weight wala na rin akong bilbil, tapos hindi na rin mukhang monay ang mga pisngi ko hehehe...and the thing is normal na rin ang eating habit ko...(sorry guys ha! minadali kona lang tong blog ko kasi baka humaba pa at ma bored lang kayo sa pagbabasa...hihihihi!)
Madaming masarap na pagkain lalo na yong mga matataas sa cholesterol...but we have to take care of ourselves kaya payo lang;.. watch out lang sa mga kinakain natin, ika nga don't understimate your calories intake...lol
and always remember mahirap magpapayat...tragis!!!
I'll have my next R&R this coming May 30 and I will have my VENGEANCE!!! ha-ha-ha-ha!
wala lang! just a thought to share this to you guys...hihihi!

We have this regular volleyball play every night, one time naglalaro na kami tapos dumating ang isang hindi ko alam kung maituturing kong barkada ko or let's just say na kakilala ko, common friend din siya ng mga barkada ko. I'm really being honest saying that I don't really like him because of his attitude, parang walang "urbanidad" basta maangas siya. He played with the opponent, when he served the ball it was out, eh tumalbog ang bola sa tabi ko tapos I supposed to run and get the ball pero dahil galing ako sa gym hindi agad ako nakatakbo (kasi masakit ang paa ko) to pick up the damn ball, but while i'm picking up tha ball sumigaw siya sabi niya "Sherwin, tao ka ba?" then I replied kasi nakakapikon na siya I said "Ako alam ko mukha akong tao, eh ikaw mukha ka bang tao?!" Eh usually maingay siya sa court yon after na masabi ko yon obviously talagang tumahimik siya ganoon din ang mga barkada ko as in walang umiimik lol, then I felt so guilty, kasi after that 1st game umalis na siya kasi mag CR daw siya pero hindi na siya bumalik. Ater the game I told my friends na guilty ako sa mga sinabi ko pero para sa akin hindi siya matatauhan kung walang magsasalita, lalo na noong sinabi ng mga kabarkada ko na naiba daw ang expression ng mukha niya after hearing what I have said.
Kaya ang tanong ko: Masama bang maging mean kung minsan, kahit for the right reason?

I came in Saudi Arabia on August 1, 2003 and it was the start of the biggest challenge in my life. It’s like searching a needle inside the dark room, clueless and totally blind. I don’t have any idea what path I’m walking through but aside from those, I have learned to stand on my own feet, making decisions without somebody’s influence and live my life everyday as exciting as riding on a bicycle for the first time. A doubtful skin is all I have (maybe it’s just the thought that I’m a Filipino) and the fact that I’m in a religious Muslim country where the perfect intensive authority is implemented nakakapraning! Kasi , separate and babae at lalake lol! Bawal magpahaba ng buhok kailangan palaging clean cut pero kailangang magpahaba ng balbas at bigote or else magugustuhan ka ng arabo at ma-babastos ka. Ilan lang yan sa mga kailangang gawin habang nasa Saudi ka. But then again, I was able to gain experience when it comes to my chosen profession specially I was a green horn that time and then I have finished my contract for two years and I decided to extend another year before I left Saudi Arabia and went to Dubai for 2 days. After spending 2 days in Dubai I composed myself for another challenging adventure of my life which is going to Iraq, because there is a job waiting for me here.
I have been working here in Iraq for 3 years now to be exact, hindi naging madali ang buhay ko dito kasi buhay pa ako until now hahahaha! Joke lang! Seriously it was year 2006 – mid of 2008 kung saan umuulan ng mortars and rockets, but I was able to survive kahit minsan sobrang nagiging paranoid na ako, kahit message tone lang ng cellphone napagkakamalan kong alarm to cover up yourself kasi may papatak na mortar…hahahaha! that was so exhausting, takbo sa bunker or di kaya naman sa kahit na anong building para lang makaiwas sa bombings lol! Di ba exciting hahahahaha! Parang action movie Title “Run…Run…Run…to the Bunker…Run” hahahaha! Di ba magtatanong kayo kung bakit ako nag i-stay dito sa Iraq until now kahit hindi maganda ang situation dito, I guess it’s only a simple question that needs a simple answer which is Pera o sweldo and the way we live our life here in Iraq and helping US government to stabilize this war torn country…and specially the way the Americans threat as without any discriminations…that’s it! Sarap ng ang buhay dito dami akong naging friends lalopa mga Fil-Am na sundalo...hahahaha!
pahabo sulat: daming party dito lalo na mga Filipino...party to the max!
Ashufat baden! (see you later!) sherwin
