Creamy pesto with chicken. I seriously have to control my carb intake because I don't get to burn enough of them as much as I need to.

But alas! This is the reason why I've gained so much the past year. I just eat too much and don't get enough exercise! =(( I'm doing what I can now to reduce some excess weight because my heels are killing me already! =((

This is Kalel now. He's 9 months this February 4. He's so big already! See that yellow thing on the floor? That used to be my bee costume that he managed to snatch from the car trunk and shredded to unrecoverable pieces.

Sinulog Scenes, Part 2

More than a week late but no matter...

Religious people fascinate me. I was raised Catholic, attended Mormon Sunday schools for some time, and friends with Baptists, SDAs, INCs, Muslims, agnostics and atheists. I've seen them very passionate about their faith and beliefs. I've had opportunities to solidify my faith on the religion I was baptized with and to leave it and seek "enlightenment" in some other faiths and ways. But none of them truly took hold of me. I've never been devoted to anything, religion-wise. I've never had a panata nor developed any dedication to completing Simbang Gabi. Mass bores me and I'm pro-RH bill and pro-choice.

So people with deep religious dedications are some of the subjects I sometimes like ruminating on. Their faith must have made quite a difference in their lives to endure whatever they have to go through during processions. Maybe it's healed a family member's sickness. Maybe they wish for good health. Maybe it's the only thing they've ever known. I wouldn't know.

Sinulog Scenes, Part 1

It's these times when I kick myself stupid for not fixing my camera (my G11 is still sitting in dried sea salt muhuhu). So, I had to borrow Ed's new phone with an 8 mp camera to take photos with during Sinulog, whoop! I couldn't properly shoot with it 'cos 1) it's new and ain't mine, 2) I'm paranoid on getting mugged. The following aren't much but I promise to post better and "proper" ones when I've transferred Ed's photos from his camera.

Photo dump ahead starting off with my face for the lulz.
