I’ve been over the moon and words can’t describe how stoked I am about being a part of #mygirls in Southeast Asia. 5 adidas girls represent Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Singapore/Malaysia. We all have at least 2 things in common – sports, and love for the 3 stripes ūüėČ

Kim (Vietnam), Maria Selena (Indonesia) and Si Phitsinee (Thailand).

Don’t mess with Kim because she’s into taekwando, you could probably tell from that knockout figure! Maria is a professional basketball player and Si Phitsinee enjoys boxing and yoga fly. Kickin’ ass is a full-time job.

Ana Karylle (Philippines), Maria Selena, Si Phitsinee and I are all in with #mygirls.

Besides capturing hearts with her beautiful voice, Ana loves ballet and running. These girls were so much fun to hang out with and we really gotta thank¬†adidas for the introduction!¬†We had a 2-day photoshoot done at different locations. Here are some more behind-the-scenes…

Alvelyn, who was our photographer for the shoot, happened to be my homie! We used to work at Borders (yes, the bookstore) back in ’07 when we were art students. I’m so happy to see that she’s pursuing her passion for photography as a career. How often do we get paid for what we love to do?

No matter how busy work can get at times, take a step back and remember that you are capable of great and wonderful things and be blessed to be living a beautiful life. Grateful = Greatness.

Who’s Going To Stop You?

Who Is Going To Stop Me

The weather has been quite erratic lately; sunny one afternoon and heavy downpours the next. This time last month (Aug 11), the 2013 Singapore adidas King of the Road (KOTR) running event had to be cancelled due to bad weather. While others headed for breakfast or to the gym instead, my girl friend Sara (and her hubby, Hinn, the man behind the lens) decided to run part of the race course on the way home.

“How often do you get your own road? #queenoftheroad”, she said.

Kudos to you both! The thing they were pissed about was not so much about the event being cancelled and not getting a refund, but Hinn’s phone, which he used to take the photo, was soaked since they ran 10km in the rain. He had to replace it with another one for $350… making that run quite possibly the most expensive run they had to pay for.

Anyway, a week after the event, Sara threw her *famous* annual tea party for her closest friends. This girl loves running (she has a treadmill at home!) as much as she loves to bake, and boy did she whip up a storm!

Sara's Vintage Tea Party

She spent 16 hours baking all those pretty pastries while Hinn helped out with the mini sandwiches.

Check out the extensive menu:

I’m not going to lie, I had a bite of almost everything! I couldn’t stop myself and everybody was keen to share (the calories). My favorite was her Nutella bread pudding and Hinn’s smoked salmon cucumber sandwiches. A bit of sin, a bit of healthy. Let’s keep it balanced, why don’t we?

I wished you would just open up a bakery, Sara!

P.S.: I’m pleased to share that my favorite online shopping site and sponsor, YesStyle.com just launched their own line of dresses. This green skater dress was from YesStyle Dress. Hit their site and check it out!

Have You Tried Sun-Dried Tomatoes In Your Salad?

Spinach sundried tomatoes pumkin

Just had this for lunch! It. was. delicious.¬†Sun-dried tomatoes are a good source of antioxidants and add so much flavor to your salad. I bought this salad mix from Cold Storage for $10.99 – it’s loaded with baby spinach, pumpkin, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, sunflower seeds, bell pepper and drizzled with balsamic vinegar dressing. It’s so filling that I only managed to finish half. ¬†Gonna eat the rest for dinner.

What’s your favorite salad topping?
