For the past few weeks I have been researching and practicing yoga for beginners. I have been looking for a yogi to teach me here in Iloilo but unfortunately I have not found anyone yet. But guess what – Facebook has solved my dilemma. A friend contacted me and introduced me to Ananda Marga Wellness Center. But before I get into more detail about Ananda Marga let me explain what “yoga” really is first to diminish the misconceptions about it. First of all, yoga is not a religion – it is a way of life, a lifestyle.
Happiness has been your gift to me
All these years of melody and pain,
Pleasure, hardship, wanton rhapsody,
Pure delight and hard, wind-driven rain.
The happiest people in the world are those who have a hard time recalling their worries..and an easy time remembering their blessings. Alin Austin
Here’s what I’ve been up to lately..
I have been busy with:
· Studying Module 1 of Sociology 1 – Anthropology (interesting read!).
· Tim’s problem at work.
· Pacman (the Flash Pacman)
· Reading “Bakit Baliktad Magbasa ng Libro ang mga Pilipino” by Bob Ong
· The Eclipse yesterday.
I made this video a couple of weeks ago. Just want to share it with everyone.
Last Saturday, 23rd of May, I finally got the chance to go to Kabankalan. Tim’s hometown. I went there along with my little brother Rino John and Tim of course. I got to meet Tim’s parents for the 3rd time and his sisters the first time (except for Dainah because we met a couple of times in the past when she went here in Iloilo). We stayed there until the 26th so that’s about 4 days and 3 nights. I loved Kabankalan! Not only did Tim’s family and relatives welcome us at their homes but they also gave us a tour of the city. I didn’t know that they have a palace-like city hall. But you have to see it to believe it. It looks more expensive than our Capitol actually. Honest. And Kabankalan is a very clean city. They have clean streets. Yes I now Iloilo is also clean but Kabankalan’s cleaner. Maybe its because Kabankalan is still more rural than urban. Their cathedral is also a lovely structure. It won’t rival Jaro Cathedral but still it’s a beautiful place to worship the Lord. We heard Mass there last Sunday.
I just got home from the city after a day at the malls with Tim (who else?!) and I realized that I just had the best five days of my life so far. Let me tell you why. This blog post is just a summary of those 5 days because I will blog about them one by one in the next five days (get it?). That way I’ll have more topics to write about. LOL.
I’ve been using my old cellphone (before it broke) for more than 2 years so I guess it’s about time that I buy myself a new one. I’ve been wanting a Nokia 6300 phone ever since I saw it online. FYI – it was the best selling cellphone in the UK for more than a year after it was released. And it’s still one of the most well-loved phones of today.
I bought this 2 cool footwears yesterday and I’m so proud of them that I took photos so I could post them …
