Area Leveling Up

Where I live is usually quiet and left out from development due to its nature of being just a path from Manila to the North. This meant that only certain businesses can thrive and prosper.

Recently though, we've been getting upgrades as bigger establishments are targeting us as a means of growth. At the start of 2013, Puregold Kanlaon replaced the old dry market/flower stalls. I generally buy my groceries here, not only because of how near it is, but prices are mostly lower here than SM/Rob/Mercury. Jollibee also landed there, whereas no big fast food place tried/survived.

Just a month ago (Sept 2013), Z-Square Banawe opened and should further give the area a boost. It's around a 12 minute walk and will feature a Cdr-king. Already open is Robinsons Supermarket, Handyman and a Cherry Mobile Kiosk. Majority of the mall is open air and will probably depend on the Green Wall they have. I walked up to it just to confirm if they're real plants. They were, and looked a bit like lemon balm.

Yeah, as expected, the Burst 2.0 camera sucks a bit.

My Intermittent Fasting Update

After watching "Hungy for Change", it reminded me of how I had that 'click' moment that I had to take care of my body. They talk of "Visualization" where you see yourself as how you want to be. The opposite kinda happened to me when I really saw the picture on the left around 2009. I said the two words that has driven me to change: "Never Again!"
Since then I've been reading up and trying out strategies to change my lifestyle. The recent ones that seemed to work well are: Blood type diet, Brown Rice and the best so far 'Intermittent Fasting'. Although IF is working wonders, I'd like to take the next step and go for juicing veg&fruits :D
