Thinking of You

I was supposed to study today but my "creative side" was begging me to make a cover of Katy Perry's "Thinking of You". If I fail this Thursday's final, at least I have a good excuse. It beats being lazy and not doing anything the entire day right?

I did an "Improved" version but I think it's a bit over done.

Win a NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Machine!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Nestle Nescafe Dolce Gusto. All opinions are 100% mine.


I have always been a huge fan of coffee. It's my pick-me-upper especially during the cold winter mornings. I have always been a Nescafe lover and this new product from Nescafe is amazing!

How would you like to have your very own coffee house machine in your house? Well you can with the new NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Machine! It uses the same high pressure system like the well known coffee places use, so you can enjoy a great cup of joe right at the comfort of your new home.

What's even more exciting (if you haven't seen the huge banner in my post) is that you could actually win a NESCAFE Dolce Gusto machine! Yes that's right! I've actually joined the contest. I want this machine so badly. You don't even have to buy anything to win, you just click on the contest banner or this link. Better hurry, because this contest ends on June 24, 2010.

I actually have a coffee maker at home but it's bulky and clean up is a hassle plus I tend to make too much coffee that they just go to waste. With the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Machine, it uses coffee capsules so you can make a perfect cup of coffee each and every time. Guess what this machine can do that other coffee makers can't. It could actually make cold coffee beverages! Isn't that fantastic?! I could always invite friends over for coffee and we don't have to wait in a line-up or anything.

Another awesome feature of this machine is that it seriously looks amazing. It's a fantastic work of art that you can display on your counter top.

Well if you don't win or if you miss the contest deadline you could always buy your very own NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Machine at The Bay, Home Outfitters, London Drugs, Sears, Wal-Mart, and other fine kitchen stores across Canada. Two models are availablem the Krups for $179 and the T-Fal for $159. The coffee capsules are sold at your favorite grocery store or online at

Ga-Gym Ka Part?

I could honestly say that I go to the gym regularly. I paid for a monthly gym membership so it's forcing me to go to the gym everyday (I want my money's worth LOL!). My gym visits would consist of doing 15 minutes of cardio then strength training for 30 to 45 min.

I've been going to the gym for two weeks now and I've been eating healthy and have deprived my sell of junk food but I seriously don't see any major weight loss especially in my stomach area. People weren't kidding when they said it's easier to gain fat than lose it. And boy, I have been packing fat in ever since I was born. I always had an excuse not to be active and exercise but now that I've joined a gym that's open 24 hours, 7 days a week, I have no  excuse not to exercise. 

I just wish that my determination to lose weight and shed unnecessary baggage comes to fulfillment. On the plus side, my stamina has improved and I could see my muscles being toned... I wish my abdominal region gets toned and flat as well.

It would have been better if I had a gym buddy though, it will make going to the gym more fun and it will surely motivate me more.

Love at First Sight

I'm supposed to be studying right now for my midterm exam tomorrow but I just wanted to get this off my chest. How can someone fall in love with someone else after meeting that person for one time? By someone, I mean me of course. I don't believe in love at first sight and I believe that it may only be infatuation but why do I miss this certain someone so badly after parting just a couple of hours ago?

Is it because I'm physically attracted to this person or is it because I am totally comfortable with this person's personality? Are my feelings similar to those of someone who looks up or admire another person? What is the boundary between admiration and love? What is love? 

This person is totally amazing and I want to be like this person in the future. I admit that I don't go out and meet other people in person but this was something different. It was something special, I feel blessed for such an encounter.

The downside to all of this is that I know this person isn't really into me and it's just another one way love/admiration. It's sad but that is how it rolls, but I am still happy that I met this person today. Will we meet again in the future? Or the real question is, will this person even want to see me ever again? Who knows.

I'm hoping for the best but I won't go stalker/fan-boy with this person since by experience, being obsessed with someone won't help with the relationship or friendship. As the old cliche goes, set the one you love free, if they come back then you're meant to be.
