When I had a glimpse of Julian Trono during the blogger's conference for his latest single Wiki Me, I thought to myself, k-pop? That was his vibe and looks like a legit Korean Artist, and it suits him well not trying hard plus the fact that he just came back from Korea. His latest single Wiki Me is now out and the music video is now being played on Myx.


We asked about his Korea experience and he said it didn't feel like he was working because he enjoyed his stay there and was very much accepted by the fans. But of course an interview will never be complete without some personal questions especially on the current status of his heart. Yes he is currently single and very much available but, we were shocked to know that if ever, he prefers someone older that him, maybe around 3 to 5 years from his age. We asked why and he said maybe because he wanted someone who is mature. Oh well, we all have preferences and if that is waht he wants, let's just give it to this cutie Korean looking young man.


His album is in the works and if given the chance to conceptualize his own, Julian said he wanted every single song to have a story, not just to have a song but something with a deeper meaning. Watch out for Julian Trono when he conquers the music scene one step at a time.

Julian Trono and his Wiki Me Single is now out!

Hurrah! Finally reached the first week under the Ideal Protein Diet Program of Diana Stalder, it was a tough week to start with since many changes and realizations have occurred, and I'm gonna share it with you.

LIFESTYLE CHANGE

- This is by far the biggest change I embraced in my whole life. Getting up early to have my IP breakfast and then having the recommended water intake all through out the day, snacks that are appropriate, lunch that is in portion and very light dinner.
The IP Diet created a new me in an instant, it also helped that the food from the IP menu were mostly delicious, my husband said so too since he would usually ask to taste them as well. I am loving this new me.

A FEW LBS. LIGHTER

- Here comes the revelation, I bought a weighing scale for my personal use and to be able to monitor my weight loss, I was happy to see that it read 7 lbs less of my original weight on my 6th day. When I went on to the Diana Stalder clinic on my 7th day and did the official weigh in, I was upset that it only read 5 lbs., I was totally down, although I trimmed down 2 inches on my waist, 1 inch on both my thighs, and I think 1 inch on my left arm, I was still uncomfortable, maybe because we (my coach) were aiming for 10lbs on my fist week. On my way home I am still not feeling good of myself, how come it's just 5, upon reaching our house I immediately took my weighing scale and did it again, and still the result was the same 7lbs, for a few minutes I sat down and tried to clear my emotions. And then I hear myself talking to myself, like hey 5lbs isn't so bad, this is the fastest weight loss I had in so many years and it happened in just a week, it may not be the goal we were expecting but still a pat on the back for being able to remove rice, and following the IP program.

Maybe my body is still adjusting and of course with my age I think my metabolism was kinda confused lol! But I was still excited for my second week, so onward we go!

BODY CHANGES

- As my husband and I observed, I am slowly having my curve on my waist part, and the layered fats on my back shrink a bit, the husband made a major comment that my double chin is not that double anymore too, my neck is also now longer and dimples a little bit more visible and of course I feel lighter.

All of these changes on my first week, I am still excited on the following weeks and the Ideal Protein Food I am about to discover, and of course finding new ways on how to prepare my vegetables, I am keeping the faith that this change is not just temporary and that I may be able to carry this throughout my program.

Also as a blogger I am mostly invited to different events, and attending them means there will be food served, imagine me having 3 events during the day and eating all the food that is served, it's just wow! But as much as possible this time I only choose events that are so important or has been my love for many years now and it is ideal that the schedule is during lunch time at least I could pick from their buffet but of course with the proper portioning and having my lettuce inside my bag. My blogger friends are also very supportive, they eat everything else on my plate. I am happy that I can say no to desserts and other food that is not on my list, night events are not welcome for now so I won't have the excuse of eating just because I am tired, I still feel hungry during the night time, especially when I know there is food available for me to consume but I don't want to mess this opportunity, not now.

It is indeed a major self discipline, in this world that I am in, food is readily available, but when I think about my health, the need of having a baby soon and the future, I think I am on the right path, I just hope people surrounding me won't give up on me, because I don't want to give up on this one either. Cheers to my second week! Love! Love! Love!

Hey it's the 6th Day on Ideal Protein and we are gearing towards the end of my first week, nope no revelations yet, but we'll go to that soon...

Day 6 Menu:

Breakfast: Chocolate Pudding (IP)
- First time to have this, it says on the packaging that it could be placed inside the refrigerator for like 30 min so it could be like an icecream. I was able to achieve maybe 5 min, yeah it was like icecream pudding type but I didn't enjoy it much and I don't know why although it is delicious but maybe because I think it lacks flavoring.

Snack: Pink Lemonade (IP)

Lunch: Fried Fish, yes fried is allowed as long as olive oil is uses to cook it. I have shreded lettuce as my side dish. Yum!

Dinner: Mushroom Soup (IP)

Tomorrow is judgement day, goodluck to me :-)

My Day 5 Menu

Breakfast: Omelette (IP)
- This is love! I thought it will cook like pancake, but oh no, the texture was like a regular scrambled egg, this is so tasty and has herbs and spices. This is the best Ideal Protein (IP) food to date. 
Note: Funny thing I did was eat it slowly, making every flavour cling to my taste buds.

Snack: Peach Mango Drink

Lunch: Roasted Chicken (forgot to tale a photo)
- Chicken skin is a no no and this time I am eating the breast part and learned to appreciate its own goodness.

Dinner: Chicken Soup
- I think this is a bit salty for me, maybe next time I can add more water

Notes:
- My first week is about to end, more insights on my upcoming post about the effects of IP on me, and yes I believe I lost a few pounds, will reveal soon...

Food for Day 4

Breakfast: Crispy Cereal (IP)
- I don't personally eat cereals for breakfast before because I feel that i need to finish it immediately to be able to enjoy the crunch of the cereals. But this one ia different, I was actually able to enjoy my food without the hurry, crunch and yum in one.

Snack: Peach Mango Flavored Drinks (IP)
- I had this on Day 2, and I think I am starting to get used to it, parang normal na lang sya na juice, not minding the parang may bitter na after taste.

Lunch: Beef and Brocolli
- Beef is not actually a regular food in our household, aside from it is a bit more expensive than regular pork and chicken, cooking time is also longer. Anyway, I am more excited with my the process I did with cauli flower, I mashed it and spiced it with garlic, salt and pepper. It's like having fried rice with the garlic flavor. Happy with my meal

Dinner: Tomato Soup (IP)
- I was afraid this won't click with my tastebuds, but surprisingly it was sooo good (emphasis in the o's lol!) that moment na talagang sinimot ko sya haha!

Day 4 Observations:
- I feel lighter. Our bedroom is on the 2nd floor, I always ask my husband to get anything I need upstairs, but in the past few days I was the one getting what I needed, my knees no longer hurt, am I starting to lose weight? I hope so (excited)
- The husband also noted that my double chin daw was nabawasan, sana nga talaga haha! Ayoko muna maniwala until ma compare ko my before photo sa clinic. I will do a complete write up of my first week soon, hope the results will be good. :-)

Day 3 done! What was our menu for today? Here's the list:

Breakfast: Pancakes
- Yes it is the same panake mix I had on day 2, this time it looks more presentable (para di naman nakakahiya) and for whatever reason, I liked it today than yesterday (sounds familiar? Parang sa song lang haha) or maybe nasasanay na ako and I am beginning to appreciate it na. (Love hate relationship ba with pancake?!)

Snack: Raspberry Jelly
- This might be my favorite snack pack to date (as if naka weeks na sa program  chos!) ang sarap kasi, very flavourful and it is jelly, hello, on a diet pero may jelly is surely a treat, nakaka happy! Naki tikim si mister, umulit pa ulit, nasarapan din sya haha.

Lunch: Chicken Breast
- I do not like the breast part period. Fave ko yung thigh, wings, legs, the skin (malutong na malutong!) and almost everything except te breast part, but na appreciate ko rin sya, sauteed with a bit of oyster sauce plus bell peppers and brocolli (my substitute for rice), nakaka busog din sya, although I think I am allowed to have the leg or thigh part so long as the skin is out, bye for now mr. chicken skin.

Dinner: Leek Soup
- I am not familiar of what a leek taste like, not even sure if it is a vegetable or a fruit haha ang fail ko dun! So afraid ang lola nyo to eat that, what is that?! But I was wrong, it was yummy haha yes purp yummy at delicious ang sinasabi ko, but maybe because mahilig din talaga ako sa veggies, hello I am a Baguio girl para saan pa at lumaki akong napapaligiran ng sariwang mga gulay, maybe that's why din this diet program made me say yes, it is healthy and so far di pa naman ako ginigutom neto. So yeah so ar so good! 

I am excited to taste more of Diana Stalder's Ideal Protein food in the next few days and the coming weeks (of course kakaririn ko na to noh!)

What I love about this food plan is that, my goal is not to be as thin as yung mga artista, I jist need to shed off those excess baby fats (medyo madami sila) and reach the right weight for my body and height, and then I think maintain na lang, so hopefully and please pray for me na makayanan ko pa the next sessions and feel free to ask or share your thoughts about this journey of mine.

Tips: Naka 3rd day pa lang may tips na!
- I cook dinner for my husband, so if my scheduled lunch for the next day is pork, yun ang putahe ko and then nagseset aside ako for myself para init na lang and just enough yung portioning for my lunch. Naka tipid pa, then yung veggies madali na lang coz you can blanch, boil or steam and ok na.

- If you have a water bottle with measurements in milliliters (ml) and ounce (oz) better use it to measure your water intake, and water for your packed DS food. As for me, I bought one, less than a hundred but very useful.

Thank you for reading and joining me in this journey.

Hello! Oh yes I once again survived day 2 without rice. (Yes issue ko talaga ang rice lol!)

Breakfast : Pancake
- I was super excited to cook this, it smelled really good, but when tasting time na, parang walang lasa, parang food for the baby, the texture is like that of the Pita Bread na parang may bits of oatmeal, honestly nilunok ko na lang sya para maubos haha! But it made me full naman so keri na! (Please excuse the picture, mukahang na murder si pancake haha!)

Snack: Peach Mango Drink
- This also smelled sooo good! Refreshing juice and a bit maasim but it was fine, and still yummy!

Lunch: Pork Adobo and Cauli Flower
- Surprisingly, eventhough there is kanin in the rice cooker, di ako na bother, i just ate my perfectly seasoned adobo (maayos un timpla ko kung kelan hindi na muna ako nagkakanin, kaloka!) and blanched veggies.  

Dinner: Mushroom Soup
-  This delicious, I super loved it way over the chicken soup on my first day, or mahilig din talaga ako sa mushrooms even before pa.

My Day 2 is kinda ok lang, ok medyo disappointed sa pancake, ang bango kasi and then, ok move on!
I still continue to drink water and pee a lot, I am more excited for lunch coz I still get to eat a normal ulam but with vegetables, na appreciate ko na sya, there are still temptations but I try to think abput aomething else so as not to destroy my focus. A pat on the back for cooking for the husband's breakfast and dinner without even tasting the rice or sinangag (di ba!) although I am a bit inggit but then I tell myself to focus. Five more days to cap off my first week and I think I am doing fine, the husband hugs me everytime nakikita nya na mukha daw akong hungry, busugin na lang daw nya muna ako sa hugs. (cheezy!)

Till tomorrow!
MisisNikole :-)
And oh I decided to quarantine myself for at least a week, no events muna for me so I will be able to adjust and yah know tukso layuan mo ako muna ang peg lol!

Picture: Yan yung huling full dinner date (rice galore) namin ni Mister :-)

Nakakaloka! This is it! Gusto ko na to! Those were my words when I was introduced to this programme, the Diana Stalder Ideal Protein Diet. Scared ako at first kasi baka hindi ko keri at akala ko rin totally walang lafang. Also syempre dahil gusto na rin namin magka baby like hello I am 30-ish na haha! Bit anyway syempre I wanted to be healthy rin for myself diba kawawa naman baby kung darating na sya eh sakit sakitan naman ang nanay nya. So anyway super mega preparation ako before ako nag full go na akapin ang lifestyle na ito, kailangan kaya kong panagutan.

And so I did, my first day is now up, sana subaybayan (teleserye ba? Haha!) at samahan nyo ako sa journey na ito... Medyo mahirap pero kakayanin at kaya magtatagalog na lang muna kasi mag aadjust pa ang utak ko sa walang kanin, so galit galit muna sa mga baby fats ko (baby pa rin?!) 

FYI: I always loved my body, my family loves me, my friends supports me and my mister accepted me for who I am. Pero hindi ako magpapa slim down just because gusto ko lumevel kanila kim chiu at kathryn bernardo ganyan, hanggang dun lang ako sa ideal weight na dapat pasok sa napaka cute kong height. I was told over and over ng doctor ko na i need to trim down para magka baby na rin, nung una deadma, pero this time and sana hindi pa late na ayusin ang eating habits ko and maybe acceptance na hindi lang dapat puro ganda at sense of humor, dapat healthy rin para mas happy haha tama o mali? Tama!

At sa acceptance nito kaagapay ang pag accept (puro accept) ng challenge na ito. Hindi ito madali as in hindi! Dahil ang motto ko noon "kanin lang ang tunay na pagkain" yun talaga ang ni let go ko, pati kung ano ano'ng excuses na bka mahilo ako at walang magbalak magbuhat sakin pra hatakin na lang ako para itabi sa side walk haha! This is me, ito na siguro pinaka comfortable kong kwento dito sa blog ko yung makulit na ako, yung totoong estado ng buhay ko, saka na ulit ang englishan for now enjoy reading sana may nagbabasa nga netong pagdadaanan ko and wish me luck! Bawal mag tag ng mga #food photos sa IG ha! Hoooy wag ganun hahaha! 

Thanks!

Day 1
Breakfast: Cappuccino (from DS)                                                                                                                              
This is the hardest first day of my entire life lol! I am a heavy breakfast eater; you know the likes of sinangag, hotdogs or longganisa or tocino and egg. But then I have to do this. The cappuccino was tasty; it’s like a regular coffee, just a bit different on the after taste, but still yummy.

My water intake must be continuous, like 1 glass per hour, and I don’t easily feel hungry and that’s good but the number of my trip to the comfort room to pee doubled. But it actually felt healthy haha!

Snack: Chocolate Balls (from DS)                                                                                                                                 
 I enjoyed this crunchy kind of chocolate balls for my snack

Lunch: Fish and Vegetables                                                                                                                                          
I had 5oz of fish and 2 cups of broccoli, at first I thought it won’t be enough but I was wrong, I enjoyed my meal and was full as if I had rice.

Dinner: Chicken Soup (from DS)                                                                                                                                         
This tastes like real chicken soup! Creamy, yummy and very tasty, I am actually surprised that all the food on my first day was just like normal, less the rice.

I was expecting to have a major headache because I have a history of migraine every time I am hungry, but today was different, everything was normal despite the “no rice” intake. There were times that I feel like eating some bread, but I talked myself out of that thought. I am extremely happy that I had the urge to fight my cravings, to not create excuses to cheat, and to just be contented in smelling the aroma of the adobo I cooked for my husbands’ dinner. I have more days to go but I am proud I survived day 1, even if I had to stay in our bedroom while the husband was eating dinner; no to temptation!

Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival marks 19th year, all set for another historic Weekend of Everything That Flies

 

The Philippines’ first, foremost and longest-running gathering of aviators and aviation enthusiasts from around the globe is back for another Weekend of Everything That Flies.

 

This year’s Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival (PIHABF) is set on February 12 to 15 at the Philippine Air Force ADAC Hangar in Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

 

Earlier this year, a memorandum of agreement to hold the annual balloon fiesta was signed by Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) president Arnel Casanova, Clark Development Corporation (CDC) president Arthur Tugade, Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) president, (then) chief executive officer Victor Jose Luciano, and Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Foundation Inc. (PIHABF) president Capt. Joy Roa at the Asian Air Safari hangar in Pasay City.

 

Four full days of flying activities—including hot air ballooning, aerobatic exhibitions, skydiving, powered paragliding, aviation formation, search and rescue flight demonstrations, and balloon bursting, among other aviation spectacles—await attendees and participants to the highly anticipated event.

 

This year’s highlights include a total of 32 hot air balloons participating from all over the world, with special-shaped balloons featuring Old MacDonald’s Farm, Maximus the Beagle Dog, Burnie the Little Devil, Upside Down Balloon, Miss Daisy, Old Lady & the Shoe, Little Girl and Little Boy, Pink Elephant, Octopus, and Vincent Van Gogh, among a host of colorful traditional balloons.

After the 6:00 AM balloon launch, attendees can also look forward to non-stop flying exhibitions which include skydiving, motorized paragliding, aerobatics, formation flying, radio-controlled model flights, kite-flying, and rocketry, before the balloons fly in again at 5:45 in the afternoon, weather-permitting.

 

Activities are not only limited skyward, as the festival grounds are also brimming with fun for the whole family. Watch car-drifting exhibitions while airplanes try to drop flour bombs overhead; catch firefighting and safety demonstrations by the Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC); discover unique goods and food finds at the “Fly Market”; see your favorite OPM bands perform onstage courtesy of Radio Republic; for would-be aviators, visit the displays of various aviation schools; learn more about birds and other animal species at the Zoocobia mini zoo; and for lovers, attend a free Valentines Concert staged by Jeepney TV on the 3rd Fiesta night, which falls on Valentine’s Day. A fireworks display and nightglow culminates the four-day event the following evening.

 

Beauty for a cause

 

As part of this year’s activities, PIHABF also launched the search for Miss Aviation. First staged in the 1970s, this one-of-a-kind beauty pageant aims to promote, advocate and inspire the youth to take up a career in aviation, and support the country’s local tourism efforts. Twenty (20) female aviation students and professionals will vie for the title which will be awarded on February 10, 2015 during the Annual Aviator’s Ball to be held at the Manila Peninsula.

 

An outstanding pilot will also be receiving the Aviator of the Year Award during the Annual Aviator’s Ball which is a recognition given to aviators who have made outstanding contributions in upgrading the standards of safety and aviation interests in their regions. Other recognitions to be awarded during the event are: Fixed Wing Pilot of the Year, Helicopter Pilot of the Year, Flight Instructor of the Year, Female Pilot of the Year, CAAP Check Pilot of the Year, CAAP Controller of the Year and Aircraft Mechanic of the Year.

 

According to Captain Joy Roa, event director, the fiesta is a platform for improving the country’s aviation standing through collaboration and interaction with international aviators. “We have so much to learn from our foreign counterparts, and this fiesta is an opportunity to share and exchange cultures and ideas. Of course, this is also a chance for us to showcase the world renowned Filipino hospitality,” he said.

 

The PIHABF organizing committee is composed of volunteer aviation experts and industry practitioners who make sure that the fiesta is carefully planned and safety-oriented.

 

Roa added, “Despite the challenges and the setbacks, we are dogged in our determination to mount this event year after year because more than a spectacle, this is an advocacy for us. We want to educate everyone, especially the youth, about the beauty of aviation and the many life lessons we can learn from it.”

 

The PIHABF 2015 was made possible with the support of the Bases Conversion Development Authority, Clark Freeport, Clark International Airport, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines and the Armed Forces of the Philippines, together with media partners the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Malaya Business Insight, Business World, Business Mirror, Pilipino Mirror, Natural 97.9 FM, DWIZ, ABS CBN, and sponsors, SM City Clark, UPS, Prudential Guarantee, Hotdog on Stick, CDO Bibbo Hotdog, Segway, Qube, Kopiko, Rudy Project, The Medical City, Yellow Cab, Tempra, Snow Cone, Flanax, Bonamine, Garant Group and Radio Republic.

 

Entrance tickets are at Php300 each, which is a donation to the PIHABF Foundation Scholarship Fund, granting scholarships to deserving but underprivileged students pursuing an aviation career in partnership with Air Link International Aviation School and the Philippine Air Transport and Training Services.. Tickets may be purchased at the fiesta’s official website, at Ticketnet outlets, or at the event gates.
