How to Lose Weight in Just 2 months

loose that weighty

HOW DID I LOSE WEIGHT IN 2 MONTHS? NO OPERATION, NO SYNTHETIC DRUGS. JUST PURE DEDICATION 

It is so crazy about how we can gain weight? It is indeed very easy to gain weight but not easy how to lose weight fast right?

BIG question???

Would you like to lose Weight fast or would you rather be on where you are right now? Overweight? People looking at you like from head to foot and look like want to puke in front of you?

How do you feel about looking at a beautiful body passing by in front of you? Well, I do get envy. Because if we look good, tone body, we tend to attract people. They want to be socialise with us. People who are obsess or fat tendency you do not have friends who looking fit. Tendency, you have the same friends as big as you are!

Here are some food ideas that help you lose weight.

In Singapore 1 out of 5 deaths are caused by HEART DISEASE and STROKE

Do you LIKE TO LOSE WEIGHT FAST?

Losing Weight I know is not an easy thing to do but I have done it myself and of course you can.
Losing weight DOES NOT MEAN NOT EATING. Losing weight means eating a proper and healthy food, NOT DRUGS. There are so many stuff available in the market, and because you are so desperate to loose weight, you will spend and hundreds or thousands in your country in  a hope you can achieve your goals.

Because you don't look at yourself in the mirror anymore

In my time that I was overweight it was part stress with work.  it was  also because I was Ignorance. 

Many of us will not exactly know what we eat as there are already loads of offering in the market. Burgers, fried chickens, thousands of food that are easy to grab..

When I was taking pills, teas and coffee which I bought at the store…  I got blotted stomach, going to toilet many times and losing my liquid and feeling weak. I indeed up in the hospital.
HERE ARE THE STEPS I WAS DOING AND STILL DOING NOW.

MY BREAKFAST

I will eat Yogurt- yogurt is good for digestive system and keep our breath smelling fresh as I read it can kills bad bacteria. Addition to yogurt, I add organic honey, strawberries, blue berries, avocado or banana. You don’t use all of these. In Addition I add baby oats and milk.
NEXT MEAL
I am working so I will bring my food to work. I will grill during evening a chicken breast/tuna fish/salmon. I squeeze some lemon to git rid of the taste.
From time to time, I buy chicken rice from my work place and tell them to give me chicken breast no skin. In some days, I get myself a YONG TAU FU with PLAIN RICE. I make sure that I only eat small amount of rice and one time only during the day.
NEXT MEAL
I sometime bring 2 lunch box of salad with chicken breast or chicken into it with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
I always make sure that I have loads of vegetables such as broccoli and spinach lightly steam or boil or any local fresh vegies I can find from day to day.

THE SECRET IS TO EAT MANY TIMES A DAY LIKE 6 to 7 times IN A SMALL PORTION

YOU MUST DO EXERCISE
In this video below, you can see me dancing Zumba.
In the gym, it so much fun than doing it alone.
You will get motivated in the gym.
Try to join the club.
Trust me it motivates you.
I have been through it.
Exercise is VERY IMPORTANT  if you are working, find a way to do it. I do exercise for fun. Before I don’t like and was never did. Now, I go to the gym, ride a bicycle or go for a swim at night before I go to bed.
I hope after reading this, you already like to lose weight fast. When you look good, you feel great! People’s eye are on YOU!
PROPER REST

STOP THE ALCOHOL,  drink socially and not REGULARLY.

DO NOT SMOKE

Viking Buffet Restaurant My Reviews

Davao restaurant

This is my views and opinion about Viking Buffet Restaurant

 

Davao restaurant
this is the inside look of Viking Buffet Restaurant in Davao

We had dinner in Viking Buffet Restaurant on 31 December 2016.
7 pm was the confirm booking schedules for 3.  At 6:30 pm, I received a call from the staff of Viking Buffet Restaurant that if we do not arrive by 7 pm, our table will not be kept for us.
It was annoying somehow as I explained that we have been trying to book a Grab taxi since 5:30 pm and no luck as the area near to Magallanes residence was block due to preparation for New Year party in San Pedro.

The way it was said is not a common friendly voice at all. Feels like they won’t really care if a customer will arrive or not as they’re are people waiting to be seated.

Maybe I am just too over spoilt with what we experienced in Singapore.

However, we got lucky of trying to get our taxi and a very oriented Taxi Driver as I have explain him our situation.

Perhaps to many Filipinos…

Viking buffet restaurant maybe a place to eat varieties of local and international cooking.

Indeed, there are a few selections from Japanese, Chinese, sinugba [ BBQ ] Filipino style like chicken intestine small fishes, part of Tuna’s head {panga}, Beef on Grill, Korean and variety of desert.

The Sushi is good, tuna fish and Salmon are fresh.

To be honest, I came here a year ago and at that time, the food are more appealing that makes you want to eat and try everything.

This time round, each time I open the silver or metal pot which are display with a name on what’s inside, it was not appetising at all.

The salad were not fresh, no better bread were available but those sweet type of roll bread.
A little cuts of 3 types of cheeses and bit of crackers around it.

Here comes the last part that I want to try… the Beef on Grill. Well it’s not really Grill, it’s like pan fry on a metal surface added with oil.

Which after eating the beef, my stomach turn upside down. It got so sudden bloated and feels acidity. I have no idea which food was making my stomach turn sour.

Over all…
The environment were lift up only by the servers and Cleaners as they were always smiling and Friendly as I great them happy New Year 2017! The stuff were always watchful of empty plates on the table and remove them.

The price per person 788 pesos with free beers I Guess it’s good for those drinkers like this guys.

Price per head is Pesos 788

I hope that Viking Buffet Restaurant will keep its quality of food and service.

BUERGER’S DISEASE

Let’s talk about Buerger’s Disease

President Rodrigo Duterte suffers Buerger’s Disease 

Philippines President Duterte
Philippines President Duterte

As quoted from Singapore news on December 14, 2016 about Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Oust me – good; assassinate me – better; I have this migraine every day,” he said. “I have a lot of issues with my spine. What I have is really Buerger’s disease. It’s an acquired thing that you get from smoking, because of nicotine.”

Doctors had advised surgery on his spine, he said, but his wife, a nurse who used to work in the United States, did not agree because “a lot of operations for the spine went wrong”.

He added: “If you guys see me always in a sad mood, I am actually pushing a nerve here to relieve the pain,” and touched the right side of his face.

What is Buerger’s Disease?

 

Almost everyone with Buerger’s disease smokes cigarettes. However, Buerger’s disease can occur in people who use other forms of tobacco, like chewing tobacco.

#chewing tobacco
         #chewing tobacco

Buerger’s Disease patient is mostly trigger to  young male (e.g., 20–40 years old) who is a heavy cigarette smoker. More recently, however, a higher percentage of women and people over the age of 50 have been recognized to have this disease.

buergers-disease-women

 

 

Another name of Buerger’s Disease is  “Thromboangiitis Obliterans”

Buerger’s disease (thromboangiitis obliterans) is a rare disease of the arteries and veins in the arms and legs. In Buerger’s disease, your blood vessels become inflamed, swell and can become blocked with blood clots.

buergers-disease

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF BUERGER’S DISEASES?

The initial symptoms include pain induced by insufficient blood flow during exercise in the feet and or the hands. The pain usually begins in the extremities but may radiate to other parts of the body. Patients may experience numbness and tingling in the limbs and also Raynaud’s Phenomenon. Raynaud’s is a condition where the extremities of the hands and feet turn white when exposed to cold. A common sign in Buerger’s is skin ulceration and gangrene of the fingers and toes.

raynauds-phenomenon

As Buerger’s disease worsens, you may start to develop ulcers on your hands and feet, which can be painful. Skin infections can also set in. Gangrene can develop if the tissues in your hands and feet completely die due to lack of blood supply. If you develop gangrene, your skin and underlying tissues become black.

Out of your two feet and two hands, it is usually at least three of these that are affected in Buerger’s disease. However, you may notice symptoms in just one finger of your hand or one toe on your foot.

In addition to smoking, male gender, genetic factors, infectious agents and mental stress due to poor socio-economic circumstances have all been suggested as possible trigger factor. Cardiovascular risk factors may also be important, especially glucose intolerance.

The only way you can help yourself for not getting burgers diseases is live a healthy lifestyle.  You may have hear this again and again from family, friends and your aquentances and it is not gonna stop until you help yourself.

Take one step at a time.. and do your best if you want to avoid Buerger’s disease

  • Brush and floss daily to keep your teeth and gums healthy and free of disease.
  • Get a good night’s rest. …
  • Enjoy regular family meals. …
  • Smile and laugh out loud several times a day. …
  • Meditate,  (how to meditate can be found HERE. Pray, or otherwise find solace for at least 10-20 minutes each day.
  • Eat breakfast, and eat smaller meals throughout the day. A healthy breakfast can jumpstart your metabolism, while eating small, healthy meals (rather than the standard three large meals) keeps your energy up.
    Avoid eating at night. Try to eat dinner earlier and fast for 14-16 hours until breakfast the next morning. Studies suggest that eating only when you’re most active and giving your digestive system a long break each day may help to regulate weight.

WHAT FOOD IS BEST FOR PEOPLE WHO SUFFER BUERGER’S DISEASES?

  • High quality protein. Protein is a source of waste products in body. High quality protein contains more essential amino acids. Our bodies can absorb them and use them to maintain the normal function of body so as to reduce the production of waste products, which is good for kidney protection. Lean meat, fish, egg white and poultry without skin are all high quality protein. But if you have proteinuria and kidney function impairment, you should follow a low protein intake.

 

  • Avoid salt- here is why?
  1. Salt or Sodium Chloride  in ANY form is an irritant and is toxic to the body.
  2. It kills our taste buds.
  3. Causes Premature Ageing – don’t you want to look younger than your age? Here is my secret formula to look 9 years younger than my age and to all of you who take this will benefit GENERAL GOOD HELTH
  4. Salt has irritating effect upon the body and its delicate membranes, especially in cases such as gastritis or ulcers.

In many fresh foods such as vegetables like celery or sea vegetables, they have high contain in sodium, that is more than good enough salt.

Here is my simple recipe for pumpkin with NO salt.

However if you must need salt.. try using very pure sea salt like

#seasalt

And what I use at home to marinate some meat for BBQ is the Himalayan salt.

IDEAS ABOUT TURKISH AIRLINES

Here what you can do if you only have little time in Istanbul..

From 2 weeks adventure in Kilimanjaro we were heading home back to Singapore with Turkish Airlines.

Before I continue with out stop over in Istanbul….

Turkish Airlines, fly from Singapore to any parts of the world. I notice that Turkish Airlines has a very reasonable rates comparing with other big airlines.

The flights from Singapore to Istanbul were very much comfortable.

Before we proceed our trip to Kilimanjaro from Singapore, we head back home to my husband home town in Volarberg Austria.  Just next to the border of Lichtenstein (Switzerland Border)

We were very please with the service on board Turkish Airline, both long and short flights. Hot super delicious meals were serve as well as fine drinks.

What’s more, you can earn miles too with Turkish Airlines.

We had a 12 hour stop over in Istanbul…

before we could proceed our flight to Singapore.  We plan it this way so that I could at least visit the city of Istanbul in Turkey.

We had landed at the airport about 11 am  at Ataturk  International Airlport (Turkish Time ) from Kilimanjaro.

What you do with you hand laggage?

We had our boarding pass already.. However, we decided to inform the airlines that we will be going to the city.





Inside Ataturk International Airlport, you will find a place to change currency as well as to leave your heavy hand luggage (specially when they are on rollers).

It is safe to leave your luggage and other things you do not want to carry around with you when you go for a city day tour trip in Istanbul.

You would pay about 25 Turkish currency which is very much reasonable. They lock your deposits and hand you over the key with a number tag.

From the airport…

We took a train, it was free a ride from the airport to the city. When we arrive at the central station, we had change our train and head down to the strait market, food street, famous bazaar etc. With the city train, you need to buy the train ticket at the small kiosk or machine along the railway which is pretty much organize.

However, you can just walk within the city center.  There are tourist busses (double decker) along the street looking out for customers. Be careful of the people right in-front of the bus tour, they give you a very high price. Best is to buy your ticket at the main station or ask for the driver.

When we arrived, it was lunch time. We were very hungry and we dive in food stall along the street.

Food in Istanbul city center are everywhere. See my video below

After lunch, we walk towards Grand Bazaar- here I lost my $100 bill hidden inside my pocket. Amazing… People can be so good at pick pocketing. In anywhere in the world, with a super busy place, you are in danger of pickpockets.

Grand Bazaar market, you can buy all sorts of stuff, from gold to a antique turkish desigb plate, art, carpet, rugs, linens and a lot of things you can find here.

From grand bazaar, we walk down to where you can see the Europe and the Asia side right by the water of Istanbul city.

brigde link to Europe and Asia. What a small world?
Brigde link to Europe and Asia. What a small world? Bhosporus Bridge

You can rent or ride a boat and it was very reasonable and comforble ride. Inside the ferry boat, we were drinking Turkish tea.  You must try Turkish Tea when you are in Turkey.

The ride took about 2 hours, as it cruises along the river under the bridge of Bhosporus.

It was fascinating to see so many of the houses, restuarants and some other boats by the river as we were cruising around.

It’s like a movie… a real movie.. real life.

After the ride, it was dark, it’s time to have some nice turkish food once again.

My video is below for you to see it live…

Ideas when visiting Hawaii with Delta Airlines

Flying with Delta Airlines

We left Singapore early morning, 8 May Friday,2015 with Delta Airlines. 

We were heading to Waikiki Beach in Hawaii many people said.. home of the surfboard

7 hours later, we have arrived at Japan finest airport.

Narrita international airport.
Had a 5 hours of stop over and I have to admit I was so bored at the airport.

Flying with comfort Delta Airlines.

Am amazed with gigantic plane of Boeing
747 aircraft to Honolulu.

Another 7 hours later  we have arrived at Honolulu
International airport yet It was a 19 hours total time flight. Guess what? It’s Friday 8 May 2015 at 7:09 am! Like a time travellers huh? I left Friday from Sungapore, arrived Still Friday almost the same time as I left.

After airport clearance, you can take a taxi or bus just outside the airport.

The bus ride to Waikiki is $15.

The taxi ride is around $40. we  took the bus and they were comfortable. Nothing compare to Philippines or Thailand.
Have finally arrive at our book  Hotel right in the Center of Waikiki. Very convenient as its walking distance to beach and restaurants.

waikiki-beach
When we arrived. I dive in into the beach of Waikiki

Here the Holiday starts! Aloha!

The Waikiki beach. Home of the surfboard!

My first drink at Dukes  was a bloody mary Waikiki style ( right by the side of the water.. Beautiful settings restaurant as I’ve watch people to the beach.

Tacos in Hawaii were so huge portion.. So Yummy

This is Tacos at Dukes! I ordered Fish tacos! It’s yummy!

Finish lunch at Dukes, went back to the hotel and had nap.

Had a long nap I am back to the beach again as according to my research… it says that the Sunset is fantastic in this area. Here are some photos I have taken using the Iphone..

Water is so clear here in Waikiki beach

When you are at the beach line, to your left the famous Diamond Head is what you see.

I am walking towards the town area. I notice there are so many ABC Stores here in Waikiki! It’s like 7-eleven in Singaoire but more variety and bigger! As I was walking I found this… the First Lady of Waikiki?

Finally! This Friday were about to be over! What a long and 2 Friday’s I spent! 3 countries.

Here is my video on my trip to Hawaii. 

 

In Waikiki, there are other beaches to see and other tourists attractions.

We rented a car right next to the hotel. In Waikiki, there are so many hotels to choose from and so as car rental company.

Consider flying with Delta Airlines. They are affordable. The only disadvantage of Delta Airlines is that the gap in between chairs has not much of the gap or room for your long legs if you are seated with economy. The good thing is you can choose or buy a comfortable seats with plenty of spaces.

Travelling can really be costly if you are on a budget..

From here… We are heading  to Las Vegas and also with Delta Airlines.

Climbing Kilimanjaro

Have you ever climb Kilimanjaro?

(This is dedicated to our guide, porter, waiter and cook. Gregory, Juma and all the Trekking Hero team.

Have you ever thought of going to Climb Kilimanjaro.

This article is for you… to get some tips and some guidance on what to do and how you can make it to the top of UHURU Peak, the highest point of Kilimanjaro.

This is my story and reality in Climbing Kilimanjaro.

Our Journey was on 11 September to 17 September 2016

Before I could continue… I need to explain to you about Kilimanjaro.

Mount Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania.

kilimanjaro-2
my hubby, myself and in the middle is Juma one of our guide

It is the highest mountain in Africa,

and rises approximately 4,900 m from its base to 5,895 meters above sea level. Elevation: 5,895 meters. Prominence: 5,885 m
First ascent: 1889 by Ludwig Purtscheller and Hans Meyer.
Mountain range: Eastern Rift mountains

(above Resources from Wikipedia)
I am not a climber… and
sometimes or many times we under estimate the mountain.
Many people fit or unfit. They have purpose why climbing Kilimanjaro.
But to me, I want to prove that an Ashmatic person can do what they want and fight for this Ashamatic problem.

My experience was never easy.
My hubby and I took the Rongai Route where they said the most scenic.  Its a long way but your body will have a chance in getting into climitazation  in preparation for the  highest peak.  Rongai indeed is a very scenic route but not an easy one either.

The route has a beautiful scenery, many little flowers as well as the large ones. A few foot steps of wild animals like elephant and buffalo were seen during our climb.

We had 7 days of expedition in total.
Each day, we go and walk long hours (about 4 to 7 hours at the beginning). Was even longer hours when we are about the climb.
From one base camp to another until we reach to Kibo Hut where the final campsite prior to Climbing the Uhuru Peak- the highest point of Kilimanjaro.

Kilimanjaro is not only a  mountain, it is also a huge park and playground to many wild animals and of course the humans.

Our climb from Kibu Hut base camp begins…

Our last night before the climb to the highest point, I ask my husband Markus if we could stay at the room. In Kibo, there is a Hut and it has few  rooms (4 rooms as I remember)  and in each room there are 10 to 12 bank beds.

All the nights during this climb were super cold for me.. The sleeping bags we had was rented from the agency were we took  and paid the package trip. Those bags were not warm at all. It is not meant for that kind of weather according to my Austrian husband.

I recommend that best is to bring your own sleeping bags. Get the best that keeps you warm at night so have a lot of energy the next day.

Another problem is that, the toilets were super dirty.. yes, there are few toilet small rooms, they dig a hole and cover it with wood.  But is so smelly, no water to wash the dirt. Water is tough in Africa.. Really.

This is just below the Mawenzi camp where we spent a night..
This is just below the Mawenzi camp where we spent a night..

Here is our preparation on the night of the climb

This night we were inside the Kibo Hut.. my heart were pounding and beats so hard for excitement or perhaps anxiety?

Inside the room, on this little corners of the bank beds and on the wall of the rooms, there were a few notes were written… notes of motivations, notes of information.. some of those notes were saying…

“I almost died..”

“15 out of 15.. we all made it”

“kili is a mind game”

“Gals, you don’t give up… you can do it”

 

We had an early rest that night.  Went to bed at 6 pm and woke up at 10pm for the final ascend…  here comes  Midnight, we walk all the way up to a never, NEVER seems to end stiff, rocky and stony mountain for long hours.

One of out guide took this image as we walk up to Gillman's point before the Uhuru pick.
One of out guide took this image as we walk up to Gillman’s point before the Uhuru pick.

Pole Pole– slow slow.

We cannot walk fast as we and many other climbers that night were breathless. So windy and  it was like a minus 20 degree cold. Climbers were just puking from one path to the other. When you hear them.. you feel doing the same.. We were out of even eating the energy bars. Don’t have appetite and you wish… you get there FAST and so you get this OVER with.

Very tricky
Before you can reach to Uhuru pick either you submit first to Gillman’s point or Estella point. When we arrive at the Gillman’s Pick, I thought this was the highest point already, it was seems to be.. Oh no…. you have to get to Stella point after Gillman’s point and then to Uhuru Pick.

Super cold and super long nite as I could Imagine.
Arrived at Uhuru pick 9:13 am on 16 of September 2016 from Kibo hut, trying to breath and breath. Headache start to aches. Vomiting, etc. A mix feelings. We have walk now now from 12 Midnight to 9am in the morrning. With only second or the most 1 minute of rest. I did not understand why we cannot rest longer.

The photo seems not so vertical, but it is so stiff really.
The photo seems not so vertical, but it is so stiff really.

Breathless, my water got frozen, could not drink, even it was prevented from getting frozen and it’s still is.

Since the starting point of this adventures…  I have taken  Diamox to prevent me from getting Altitude sickness.

I do not recommend you to take Diamox…

It just gave a lot of side effects. Before the day of climb, I was already breathless. Tingling on both fingers and feet. So like a drug addict.

The best thing you do is to prepare yourself healthy much ahead before the climb. Prepare yourself like a year or so.. keep fit and strong is all you need as well as strong in your mind and attitude of a ‘GO GETTERS’

this is the top of Kilimanjaro with Juma and Gregory our guide
this is the top of Kilimanjaro with Juma and Gregory our guide

Because of the inspiration with my husband Markus, I made it to first, you reach to Gillman’s Point when you are coming from Kibo Hut or the Rongai Route. Followed by Stella Point that may take about 30 minutes on slow pace walk. And to the very top of Kilimanjaro where there lies the Ice Age..

I am saying... If I can do it! So can you!
I am saying… If I can do it! So can you!
( on my note that I hold in that image.. I said.. ‘If I can do it! So can You”)

It was amazing..  to be on the top of Kilimanjaro… It was a fulfillment of our life.. It was also a time where getting to know my husband well. The time where the life and death comes together. Then you knew how your relationship worth as a husband and wife. It was beautiful doing this climb of Kilimanjaro.

Now were in-love once again…

I wish I was in good condition…

to take images though, one of my camera were frozen. Only had the hand held canon and it took photos just fine. But only taken a few. I was focus on my plan that I have to Dance on the top of Kilimanjaro. Which I did.

You are only allowed to stay 15 minutes to take your photo taken.

And you were not the only one at this time.

As we descend from the pick, we were cruising the sandy and stony path dust all over until your nose bleed from sneezing.

IMPORTANT TIPS TO KNOW….

Bring yourself a super warm sleeping bag, DO NOT rent from your agency. It’s not warm enough for individual needs.

Good hiking shoes.. I bought mine from Lowa brand. Super comfortable.

Super warm but light clothing.

Flash lights and spare batteries.

You have to use walking sticks. It does help when going down the mountain. Even if you are so young.. your Knee will suffer from the down impact of walk.

Trekking Hero agency however are very helpful.
The people in Africa are all great really. The warmest people I ever met.

To summarize the above mention.. Here is my video on this trip. Please do share .. and thank you for reading..

Blockchain Why We Need to Know?

 Blockchain, and why we need to know about Blockchain..

 Definition from Wikipedia ….

A blockchain is a core component of the digital currency bitcoin—conceived in 2008 and first implemented in 2009—where it serves as the public ledger for all transactions.

In the bitcoin case, every compatible client is able to connect to the network, send new transactions to it, verify transactions, and take part in the competition to create new blocks. The competition creating new blocks is known as mining.blockchain

The “blockchain” today is like the internet in the early 1990s…

and the investment implications are just as enormous.
The blockchain is a decentralized, digital ledger.
Its decentralized nature has made it impossible to “hack”…
since no one is able to alter the ledger in all the places
it resides at the same time.
The internet changed the way we record and exchange information.
It made the flow of communication across the world
faster and more efficient.
Trillions in value were created.
Likewise, the blockchain is changing the way we record and exchange value.
It will make transactions across the world faster and more efficient.
Trillions in value will be created.
Yet, it’s so early in the game, many people still don’t even know about the blockchain…or how they can profit from it.
And that’s creating wide-open opportunities for those in the know…
If we still can remember, the internet was the same in its infancy.
Many investors didn’t see its significance—or even know it existed—in the beginning.
Then web browsers came along and the internet was quickly on its way to mass adoption.
Early investors made fortunes.
Today, the blockchain is starting to gain traction.
Eventually, these online distributed databases will be as ubiquitous as the World Wide Web.
And a new group of early investors will get rich like those at the
start of the Internet Age.
A Decentralized Database.
The blockchain is maintained by thousands of independent computers.
These computers are constantly “talking” to each other to ensure the ledger is always valid.
By storing data across its network, the blockchain eliminates the risk that comes with information being held in a central location.
This “decentralized” network is much more secure than databases with central supervision.

How it works?

it’s more efficient for hackers to try and break into one central site holding millions in assets than millions of individual computers holding hundreds or thousands.
The blockchain is also faster, more secure, and more efficient than centralized networks.
That makes it the perfect technology on which to reinvent the financial system and the trillions of dollars that move around it daily.
A New Network of Value.
Here are eight ways the blockchain will forever change
how we use money:

Verifying:

The blockchain will eliminate the need for you to pay an intermediary
(like a notary) to verify transactions.

Transferring:

The blockchain will make it easier for you to make payments,
transfer money, or buy and sell goods.
You’ll move your money faster and cheaper with the blockchain than
with traditional wire services like Western Union or MoneyGram.

Storing:

The blockchain will let you store money digitally instead of using a
bank, money market fund, or government security.
It could potentially make checking and savings accounts obsolete.

Lending:

You will be able to make, secure, settle, and trade loans on the
blockchain faster and easier than today.

Exchanging:

Every day, trillions of dollars in financial assets are traded between parties.
The blockchain can cut settlement times from weeks and days to minutes and seconds.

Funding:

Raising money now requires third parties such as investment bankers, venture capitalists, and lawyers, among others.
The blockchain will automate this process and eliminate the need for third parties. More people will have access to capital than ever before.

Insuring:

The blockchain supports decentralized models for insurance
that can make risk management more efficient.
This will lower premiums overall.

Accounting:

The blockchain makes bookkeeping virtually automatic and instantaneous while keeping it 100% transparent.
As you can see, the blockchain will revolutionize how you use money.
But what we don’t know is that the blockchain’s impact will extend well beyond finance…..

INTRODUCING THE CRYPTOCURRENCY

 

BITCOIN, ETHERIUM, LITECOIN ? these are the most popular crypto currency  today.

Here is an example of Bitcoin values in comparison to USD.

7 of November 2016, the time I wrote this..

bitcoin

1 bitcoin is equivalent to USD 716.64
The question is would you believe it or not? Would you participate it?

Getting to know

BITCOIN –

A type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank.
“bitcoin has become a hot commodity among speculators”
a unit of bitcoin.
“bitcoins can be used for online transactions between individuals”

As I am now into Bitcoin, I am getting to understand how it works and how it is easy, fast and safe in dealing with  by the click of a keyboard or a mouse on your computer. The most part I love bitcoin is that  I save the cost of sending money to anywhere in the world like the remittance center charges.

An example of that is my latest transaction to one of  bitcoin wallet. [see below].

bitcoin-1

It is super easy banking in your bitcoin from a source of income on your online business or you can add funds by Bank transfer or 7 Eleven and other forms paying or adding money to your account which all can be send via your dashboard.

You can pay bills, shop online , pay for loans anywhere in the world even this  company is base in the Philippines.

The more well know international is the COINBASE.

Those are my latest transaction and those amount are mostly funded from my online  bitcoin affiliate company.

Now you can provably believe when I can show you prove.

Therefore, we should start building and investing into bitcoin  and bitcoin if you can see .. it is been included in the currency exchange data.

What if??? what if in few months or a year from now…. 1 bitcoin is equivalent to 1,000.00 USD? Will you thank me?

Why not invest today? But hey!! only do it when there is money that you can consider to put it aside, not that you have nothing to eat in a running days alright??

How can you do this? well, leave a comment and I can share it to you personally if not,  try this one……

Which I am currently working with this right now. Be aware though that there are millions of scams on the internet. It is somehow hard to recognise. But investing into bitcoin or other investment always has RISKS.

This my paying adds company however been  paying us for at least 18 months  now with NO problem at all.

This is the advertising company whereby you can advertise your products and services as well us recommend to get commissions from it. Just like any traditional or online business.

I will be happy to assist you in anyway… feel free to leave a comment below to improve me. Thank you..

Sign of Hypertension – High Blood Pressure

Knowing you have hypertension or high blood pressure is important. It is never too late to getting to know “you”.

Back In 2011, I  start to get notice that I have high blood pressure. Everytime that I pay visited with my Gynae, they will take blood pressure on me. It was always on high side but the nurses or my doctor do not pay attention to it.  I trusted them and not saying any comments as I trust their professionalism.
In 2012, I went to Thailand and have my annual check-ups done. I was brought to a special room in Bumrungrad hospital. There was an expert and we had a good talk about my work and all of the kind of how I live my life sort of thing…
Then I realize how my life was in danger when she ask me if do I want to take a pill to lower my blood pressure and that once I start, it will be forever. No wonder I always have  pain on my shoulder and a bad haeadache. I just ignore it by going for a massage almost everyday.

High Blood Pressure? Serious? Not in my family has it. Why should I?
Paying attention to our body is so important! (Please you do not IGNORE YOUR BODY! Do Not Ignore if you are unwell. Don’t think you can save your money by not going for check-up. You will spend more if it gets to worse).

Get yourself a BLOOD MONITORING  APARATUS which you can check your blood pressure from time to time. I it is so good to know.

Blood Pressure Monitor
Blood Pressure MonitorI am using  “I-health which I sync to my phone. It has an app.

I refused and I said I can make it go away, I came back to Singapore, made a plan on what I need to do. It took me awhile to get started. Then, met a customer for my photography business, good looking in his physique. As usual I like talking to my customers. This customer of mine was very kind enough to encourage and guide me what to eat and what is NOT.
This was back only in January 2013, I started to avoid food such as: Deep fried food, Refined Carbo and Full Fat Dairy Products as well as alcohol ( not totally as I mingle and go out with drinker friends).
I began to really listen and get focus on my plan, my daily diet was to eat 4 to 5 x a day. My friend recommend to eat 6 to 7 x per day in smaller amount but I have no time for it. (still say no time) bad habbit when you say.. you have no TIME for your health?)

No rubbish snacks.  Eat Kiwi or apple or a banana when  feeling  hungry in between.

Wholegrain Oatmeal with Greek non fat Yogurt plus some blue berries sometimes with a little honey to taste. I do have SEA SALT to taste but not often. I have it season to my fish and squeeze of lemon.
For my carbo after long walk, I have brown rice or sweat potato. These are good carbs.
Grilled chicken breast no skin with no salt, loads of green salad with no dressings or just steam broccoli.

Griiled Salmon or tuna with loads of green salad – no dressings is really good for people who is having a symptom of high blood pressure.

Here’s what I found for eating right.

If i have to drink coffee, I do drink with no sugar or any forms of sugar replacements especially this one:

equal-packets

Ever since Equal sweetener has been approved, thousands of complaints has been sent to the FDA, but not much has been done about them. A lot of these complaints involve serious side effects, such as headaches, abdominal pain, nausea, dizziness, temporary blindness, mood changes and shakes.

Why not to add sugar?

“A drink you buy at Starbucks could contain up to 25 teaspoons of sugar per serving, according to a new report by British campaign group Action on Sugar. That’s three times the amount of sugar in one can of Coke, and more than three times the maximum adult daily intake recommended by the American Heart Association…. When you are consuming sugar in hot drinks, it’s easy to drink a large volume of liquid in a short time, and any sugar it contains is very rapidly absorbed into the body. It would, for example, be much harder to consume the same amount of sugar if it was in the form of rice. It’s one of the particular problems with sugary hot drinks… “you have a spike in sugar levels in the blood — and as everyone knows, what goes up must come down. The pancreas releases lots of insulin in response. A very high rise and rapid fall of sugar in the bloodstream may be bad for health – it may put you at risk… of laying down of fat under the skin and, more worryingly, in the guts, liver and pancreas.”

What is my motivation to avoid all that?

I love being sexy me.

I did lost a few fats, from 60 Kilos I went down to 52 kilos in just 2 months. My customers and friends were surprize! I also notice that I need to tone my body as I lose weight, my skin get hanging. I go for a walk every morning for an hour or more, depends on my time.

Now, my BP (blood pressure) is very normal. I weight 49 to 50 KLS.

By the way I stand 5 feet and 2 inches tall. Lol! Imagine if I am 60 Kilos heavy? How will I look?

Hawaii
Me in Waikiki Hawaii back in 2014.

I feels great because my friends said I look good as I get older.
It is about decipline to oneself. I am worried for so many friends I knew they just died and leave thier young children and beautiful good looking husband or wife behind.
It is never too late to keep fit for your love ones.

NO time to go shopping?

 

If you have any thing to say, I appreciate that your comments so I could improve myself.

Thank you.

Why Not To lose Weight? Why Not today?

Lose weight? this question sure comes to our mind..

it is the most spoken topic, the most question occurs is I do exercise but I do not lose weight – why?
We human are being so ignorant. We think that going to the gym or doing an hour of walking, running, or any forms of exercise will make us lose weight.

To some people, they think that by stop eating for few days will make them lose weight too.

Oh man! Oh man!!

To lose weight is not just about having the vigorous exercise, not or stop eating. Forget about all these misconception. Everything we do affects very much to our health and I want to share this informations with you.

HAVING SEX

people-having-sex

Women burn about 3.1 calories per minute while men burn 4.2 calories every minute when they have sex. So in a session lasting 30 minutes, men can burn about 100 calories.

 Sex blasts calories

Instead of burning a measly 70 calories per hour lying in bed together watching TV  or movie shows, invest in some highly enjoyable exercise. A mere 25 minutes of sex — we’re figuring 10 minutes of foreplay, 15 minutes for the main event — burns 88 calories if you’re a 150-pound woman, 106 calories for a 180-pound guy. That’s the same energy you’d expend doing a light workout on a rowing machine or stationary bike. Trying out a fun new position that feels like an adults-only game of Twister will boost the burn rate a little. And going for a second round will, too. Arriving at the Big O gets your heart pounding as much as bounding up a tall flight of stairs.

 Sex curbs carb and fat cravings

Regular sex can help keep levels of cortisol, the high-anxiety hormone, in check. That’s good news, because too much cortisol boosts your appetite for high-fat, high-carb goodies and tells your body to store the extra calories around your midsection. A romp in the hay short-circuits cortisol’s ill effects. Turns out sex dampens your body’s “fight or flight” response to tension-provoking events. Intercourse, specifically, also calms your blood pressure, even when everything around you is going haywire. You remain serene instead of being possessed by an unstoppable craving for Twinkies. This stress buffer can translate into a slimmer midsection. Wondering exactly how researchers measured the effect of sex on stress?

 Sex can double your fat loss

By helping you sleep like a baby. Skimping on sleep — whether you’re catching up on work or just tossing and turning — undercuts your body’s ability to shed fat, even if you’re dieting! Indulging in some one-on-one pleasure before you say goodnight also releases oxytocin, the cuddle hormone that helps regulate slumber, too. Even a snuggly hug can nudge levels of this helpful hormone upward. That’s good news for weight loss, because getting enough sleep can sharply increase the amount of fat you lose while dieting, according to one government study. Find out why sleep helps you lose belly fat and keep lean muscle.

 Sex can keep your diet on track

By improving your body image. Getting a self-esteem boost is one often-overlooked reason people have sex. What better proof of how appealing you are than an appreciative lover and a mutually satisfying romp!

And the rewards keep coming. Not only does sex improve your body image, but a better body image improves your sex life, too. Women who like themselves physically dive into more and better sex, regardless of the number on the bathroom scale. And when you do that, your appreciation for your body may spill over into healthier eating habits and a stronger commitment to exercise. Just remember, you don’t need J-Lo’s curves or Matthew McConaughey’s sixpack abs to feel good about the way you look, with clothes or without. Focus on how good you and your partner can make each other feel and you might be surprised at how much healthier you start looking.

 Good sex can make you slimmer and keep you that way

Already lost a few pounds? You may have noticed an uptick in sexual pleasure. Even modest weight loss can boost a guy’s testosterone levels and reverse some erectile dysfunction. For women, trimming excess weight can enhance arousal, orgasms, and overall satisfaction. How can this keep you slim and trim? You have probably already heard (or know from experience) that maintaining a new, healthier weight is tougher than losing the pounds in the first place. If you keep this big but rarely noted bedroom benefit in mind the next time you’re tempted to skip your morning walk or order the sausage and waffles with extra syrup, you’ll not only keep on fitting into those skinny jeans, you’ll also have even more fun when you take them off.

Since it does burn some amount of calories, you can definitely make it a part of your weight loss plans. In addition to this, sex also has a host of other benefits such as putting you in a good mood, increasing blood flow, helping you sleep better, etc. So, have more sex today!

RELAXING – Meditation and Yoga

Young woman meditating outdoors

You don’t have to really food diet to lose weight… just relax instead, say experts.

A new study shows that learning to relax can help slimmers become thinner.
Those who took part in activities designed to help them unwind, including meditation and yoga, could even lose weight without going on a diet.

“By learning and practising relaxation techniques as part of a wider lifestyle change programme, women have effective tools to manage stress and emotions without resorting to unhealthy eating.”
“Break free from chronic dieting and make sustainable lifestyle changes” was the way to ensure better health over the long term.

Meditation can also clear a foundation for healthier thinking and feeling. “When you meditate, all the junk comes up, all the clutter,” says Lahman. “The negative body images come up, the desires for certain foods come up, and the emotions that are attached to those desires come up. The more they surface, the more you can put them in your mental recycle bin and start with a clean slate.”

Here is How to Meditate

Young woman meditating outdoors

Sit straight in a comfortable, quiet place.
Close your eyes.
Relax your muscles.
Pay attention to your slow and natural breathing.
When distracting thoughts occur — and they will — simply notice them and gently bring your attention back to the breath. You may have to do this often at first.
Continue for 10 to 20 minutes.
Try to practice once or twice daily. With time, meditation will “bring a sense of relaxation, of coming to peace,”And from that place of peace we make better choices.”

How to Yoga?

DAY4 CATCOW POSE STEP 3

If it is difficult for you to do yoga, the best way is to join some classes in your nearby community centres.

There are private session as well that you can pay per lessons. This is for you to get familiarise. I did not know what to do before, looking at the photographs alone, cannot just perfect your yoga poses. It is so important that you know the “how”.

If you cannot find a Yoga lessons to attend, find some video on Youtube or Vimeo. There are plenty of those videos you can follow at the comfort of your home.

About

 My Ambitions in life makes me wander around the world.

Born in Davao Philippines. This is the south part of Philippines . Davao is where the home of President Rodrigo Duterte.

People that fly to Davao will be able to get a flight directly from Singapore or most flight have a stop over  to Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila where the capital city of Philippines.

I was an ambitious person back then in middle of 1990’s. Not knowing what may happen. I was afraid to get out of the country as hearing rumours that young women were battered in Japan  by Yakusa or rape in Saudi Arabia and get hang and caned in Singapore. Due to to poverty  was happening at that time in the Philippines, after I have studied, I needed to find work to support for myself  and then to my family which is a very common brain of thinking to many Filipinos. (get out of the country and find work and get rich), which the fact is not really.

Had a hard time back then in Paranque Manila Philippines.

Sharing a room with a friend, we work at the Pubs in Paranque, my friend was beautiful and I was so dark so I was put in the kitchen and my friend have to entertain the customers. Fat and Ugly Old man coming to a small bars along the side of Paranque near Gatchalian Subdivision as far as I can remember.

Marina Bay Sands Singapore
This is Marina Bay Sands, when I came here in Singapore, the Swiss Hotel was the highest building and today, there are numerous tall building in Singapore. I has change so much.

I was a tourist back  in Singapore, looking for an opportunity.

In such an expensive country? You maybe wondering how I made it a success in Singapore?

As I always will share and mention, our attitude towards how we look at others, we respect while we can and we fight and argue for our rights. We focus on things we love to do in life.
FOCUS is the key to become a successful person, no matter what you may want to do. Without focus and an attitude  of getting what you want to achieve in life, you are nothing at the end of the day.

My childhood experience

my self portrait shot with my staff at Novena Studio here in Singapore.
My parents  died  when me and my other siblings were at the very young age, and you may have an idea of what it looks like growing up without a proper guidance of an adult. My other siblings were separated, they are somewhere in my relatives and I was in my grandparents as I was the youngest one.

As far I can remember, I grow up with rice fields, vegetables and bananas. I went to school with no shoes,  but a rotten fit flops, I kept my shoes for going to church.

When I was in high school age, I decided to go out from the farm, I stayed with some friends home or to my teachers, in return I will clean their homes, babysitting, laundry by my hands. (not like now, we have a washing machines and dyers).

So, I wonder why today the kids are very much spoiled, they have latest model phones, do drugs, being bad to their parents.

I wish for myself today, that my parents are with me, I will shower them  with all my love and will never ever go hunger ever again.

You are reading about me and I want to motivate you here in my blog, by sharing what I can in my travel, adventures and me being in a successful photography business that leads me to retired young and have travelled the half of the world.

Jeju Island South Korea

Jeju Island

Jejudo (also known as Jeju Island) is the largest island off the coast of the Korean Peninsula, and the main island of Jeju Province of South Korea. The island lies in the Korea Strait, southwest of South Jeolla Province. The island contains the natural World Heritage Site Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes.

Jejudo has a temperate climate; even in winter, the temperature rarely falls below 0 °C (32 °F). Jeju or Cheju Island is a Korean resort destination known traditionally for its remarkable women divers, who harvest seaweed and shellfish with little more than a knife and no breathing apparatis. This practice has spread throughout coastal Korea and Japan and in those areas, men have tended to stay home to raise the children while the women worked.

Me and my close  friend Belle experience Jeju Island last May 2016. We had a great time, nice weather when we went there. We stayed at one of the most beautiful hotel in Jeju called  Ramada Hotel.  See image below. This hotel has a wonderful architecture and lash food buffet during breakfast. Our hotel room package includes Standard room.

jeju-hotel
at the Ramada Hotel and Bar

Inside the room has 2 queen size bed. One for me and 1 for my friend Belle.

My friend sleep like a baby each night. There was one morning she said….” I don’t feel like going back to Singapore. I wish my life is like this forever.” Ramada hotel I must say, has very good deals when we book it. They can also offer  you tours around the Island with guides. If you like the comfort of having someone bring you to places you like to see.

HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTION

Sanbangsan Mountain

is the result of violent volcanic activity some 700,000 to 800,000 years ago and is in fact a huge body of lava. The cliffs on the southern side of the lava dome are marked with a rich variety of curious formations such as weathering pits and talus scree slopes, some of which are as high as 200m. As its name ‘sanbang’ – literally meaning ‘a cave inside a mountain’ – suggests, this mountain contains a cave, which is located about 150m above sea level and has a spectacular view out over the ocean. Due to its close location to the sea and its high elevation, the peak is often ringed with clouds. The upper slopes of the mountain have their own distinct climatic conditions and are protected for their value for botanical research.

 

Hallasan Mountain

is mostly formed out of basalt. It is also called MT. YeongJusan which means Mount High Enough to Pull the Galaxy. Hallasan comprises 153.112 of the Jeju island. It rises 1,950m above sea level which means this is the highest mountain in South Korea. It is the only park out of 20 not managed by the Korea National Park Service. Mount Hallasan is famous for its vertical ecosystem.

This mountain is easy to hike. You can go to the peak of this mountain and comeback in one day. The admission to go on this mountain is free. It is limited to day hiking.   The best months to climb up the mountain is May, June, July. It takes about 5 hours to reach the peak in a slow pace.

Hallasan stands out at the center of South Korea’s southern most island, boasting at exquisite landscapes due to its varied volcanic topography and vegetation distribution ranging vertically though subtropical, temperature, frigid and alpine zones. This Video below is are some of our activity in Jeju.
