  6. Congrats!
    Marami akong question...
    1. Why was the bike assembled?
    2. Was it customized?
    3. Can't you just buy those that were already assembled?
    4. What's the difference of this bike to other bikes?

    So halatang wala lang akong alam sa bikes diba?

  7. Congrats!
    Marami akong question...
    1. Why was the bike assembled?- BECAUSE WALA AKONG MAKITANG BIKE NA FIT SA TASTE KO :)
    2. Was it customized?- TECHNICALLY HINDI SHA CUSTOMIZED KASI UNG FRAME WAS BOUGHT OFF THE SHELVES, PERO THE PARTS WERE BOUGHT SEPARATELY.
    3. Can't you just buy those that were already assembled?- KASI MAGANDA YUNG FRAME, PANGET UNG GROUPSET. MAGANDANG GROUPSET, PANGET FRAME, SO CHOPCHOP-ING IS THE ANSWER :D
    4. What's the difference of this bike to other bikes?- THIS BIKE IS TIMMY'S :) HEHEHE

    So halatang wala lang akong alam sa bikes diba?- TUMPAK! :)

  8. Mabilis.
    Eto pa mga tanong:
    1. So alin ang mas mahal? Yung chop-chop or yung assembled na agad?
    2. Kung bibili ako ng bike (na medyo malabo dahil may pwede akong gamitin), ano ang recommend - assembled na or ipa-assemble?
    3. Magaan ba ang frame ng bike na yan?
    4. Pwede ba palitan ang seat ng isang bike? (feel ko kasi palitan ang seat nung bike)
    5. Bakit curved ang handles?

    Ayan ang mga sagot ko sa sagot mo.

  9. Mabilis.
    Eto pa mga tanong:
    1. So alin ang mas mahal? Yung chop-chop or yung assembled na agad?- USUALLY ANG ASSEMBLED/ CHOPCHOP ANG MAS MAHAL TALAGA KASI SPECIFIC PARTS ANG BINIBILI, MAS MAHAL KAYSA SA BUO NA, KASI WALANG PALITAN NG PARTS DUN :)
    2. Kung bibili ako ng bike (na medyo malabo dahil may pwede akong gamitin), ano ang recommend - assembled na or ipa-assemble?- DEPENDE KUNG YUNG BIKE NA AVAILABLE SAYO EH SWAK SA BIKE FIT MO, AT KUNG ANO ANO PANG BAGAY BAGAY :)
    3. Magaan ba ang frame ng bike na yan?- OPO, PERO ANG IBANG PARTE NYA AY HINDI GAANONG KAGAANAN (PERO OK LANG KASI PARA HINDI AKO TANGGAYIN NG MALAKAS NG HANGIN?)
    4. Pwede ba palitan ang seat ng isang bike?- PWEDENG PWEDE! (feel ko kasi palitan ang seat nung bike)-AKO DIN, PERO PARANG ANG TIGAS KASI NG UPUANG ITO HEHEHE PERO KASI 450 LANG SHA EH KAYA PWEDE NA TIYAGAIN :)
    5. Bakit curved ang handles? -MAS AERODYNAMIC ATA ANG POSITION NG KATAWAN SA GANONG HANDLE (YUN AY HINALA KO LAMANG).

    Ayan ang mga sagot ko sa sagot mo.- TAPOS NA SAGUTIN ANG TANONG MO :)

Maximizing Potentials

Running has always been my favorite me-time activity. It does not only help me clear my mind, it also helps release toxins from my body. Even though running has been my 'sport' and therapy since 2009, I still have not maximized my potential with this sport.

Tonight, I tried to rekindle my love affair with running by jogging (yes, jogging, the slower version of running?) around UP acad oval. I said to myself, just one round of continuous jogging, and I'm done. Mahirap nang mabigla ang katawan, baka may sumakit pa kinabukasan, etc. So I did na my slow jog, and as I was getting into the groove of things, it slipped my mind that my intial goal was only to do one round.

Slowly and surely, the endorphins started kicking in, and I was trying to shuffle my feet faster, slowly increasing my pace, but still a managable one for someone trying to get my groove back. There have been times when I felt a bit of discomfort, maybe because it has been quite a while since I last had a decent…

why do i hate mizuno

Mizuno sucks. BIG TIME.

yup. you read that right. why?

point #1: they are not a mainstream brand.

mainstream in a sense that they don't even have well-known product endorsers unlike other sports brands around the world. i mean, how can they expect their products to sell like pancakes if they're like that diba?

point #2: they do not promote much of themselves.

not much print ads if you'd ask me. i work in a magazine publishing company and i don't see much of their products splashed all over our magazines. i don't see them having television ads too. not even in the newspapers does mizuno have anything that will lead people to buy their products.

point #3: the products are not that "fashionable."

as compared to other "mainstream" brands, you won't see your regular juans and marias wearing mizunos together with their jeans to the office. you don't see them usually wearing mizunos when they go around the malls, walking, shopping, chilling out. nope.…
