Tall, Dark and Handsome

Sun Protection Tubes | Michal Marcol / FreeDigitalPhotos.netIn case you are wondering, no I am not talking about myself, happy now? I am not tall, not dark and not handsome, so you can be sure that I am not talking about myself here. Oh there are times in my life when I wish that I could be tall, dark and handsome, but you learn that you cannot get everything that you wanted in life, well not me anyway.

I am not dark skinned although my skin was of light brown complexion, being of South East Asian descent. People are strange that, here in Indonesia, the commercial is often about a product that can make your skin whiter or lighter. We even see some people using umbrellas when the sun is particularly hot.

I noticed also that people with light skin complexion wish their skin could be a bit darker. So they tried many things like sunbathing. Some could probably went a little extreme by exposing their skin to UV lamps regularly just like when I watch that new The-A-Team movie a while ago. Read the rest of this entry »

An Alternative To Losing It

Tomato on a Plate | Image: Catherine Hadler / FreeDigitalPhotos.netBy that I mean alternative way for you to lose weight. I still firmly believe that the most effective and rewarding way to lose your weight is by doing a combination of eating responsibly and working out regularly. I was never really much overweight all my life and I quite enjoy doing various sports so it comes rather easily for me.

I know that some people are simply not that lucky in that they have been overweight almost all their life. I believe it will be harder for them to lose weight especially if they haven’t been active or involved in sports that require a lot of physical activities. I know the craving for food is hard to resist, especially for people who are used to eating a lot. Read the rest of this entry »

Pictures For Your Blog

I have read somewhere before that adding pictures to your blog posts make it more attractive. I have to say that I agree, but too lazy to actually add those picture to my blog posts. Finding a good free photos for your blog posts is not easy, at least that was what I thought at first. I found out that it was actually quite easy to find free photos for your blog posts.

Searching Google I found several websites that offer free pictures as long as you give credit to the photographer and add a link to their profile on the free photos website. If you want, you can go to Free Digital Photos to see for yourself. All you need to do is register and you can then log in to the website to begin searching for photos.

I found that the pictures are of good quality and fit my need perfectly. So I am going to put some blog posts with pictures from now on. I hope it can really make a difference.

Shooting It Out

I don’t really like violence, some people would say that I am a coward, and I have to admit that they could be right to some extent. But I do lose my temper once in a while. I didn’t like it when I do because I didn’t like how I feel afterward. There’s something strange about it though, because although I don’t like violence but I often played games that incorporates a lot of violence.

I guess a lot of games, to some extent, portray violence in them. Of course games such as these usually comes with a warning that they are only appropriate for people who are of certain age as indicated by the games rating. Even though I don’t like violence, I admit that I have played games that contain violence in it such as the Medal of Honor games. Read the rest of this entry »

Losing It

What I am talking about is losing weight of course, because with reality series such as The Biggest Loser people are starting to understand that being overweight is not healthy. Some people said that big is beautiful, it could be so yes but healthy? I think we need to also look at the cause to people being overweight.

There are a lot of reasons why people are overweight, either through their own fault or through other people’s fault. When I just started to work, I gained more than 20lbs because I started eating and snacking more and working out less. It was that way for almost 4 years. I tried hard to lose that extra weight and even then it took me quite a while. Read the rest of this entry »
