In the Still of the Night

And I am still sitting in front of my PC, writing blog posts after blog posts. Sooner or later I am going to break from all of this. I think I really need a vacation. Perhaps I will get lucky this weekend, we’ll just have to wait and see. I have to admit that I didn’t get much sleep as of late.

Oh, that reminds me. If you are planning to lose your weight, then you better get enough quality sleep. I read somewhere that if you didn’t get enough sleep on a day, it actually hampers your body’s ability to burn fat. Not to mention that it lowers your body’s endurance and makes you more susceptible to illness. Read the rest of this entry »

Wish It Was Here

Seoul Contrast | J Frasse / FreeDigitalPhotos.netI found an article about Seoul on Time’s website, and I was amazed by how advanced South Korea’s capital city is. I really wish I can go there someday. I guess that explains why there are a lot of electronic brands that comes from South Korea such as Samsung and LG. I can’t help but wonder how complicated maintaining all that technologies must be.

If you want to read the article, you can go and visit Wired Seoul on Time website. I never really considering going to Seoul myself, but after reading the article and seeing the pictures, I know I just have to go there someday. I just hope I can be lucky enough to actually get the chance to go there someday.

To visit the most connected city in the world will be like a dream come true. Someday perhaps, someday.

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.
