The Sound of Music in Salzburg

My mother is based in Salzburg (Austria) for a long time, more than 20 years I guess. She even speaks the native languange, already (it’s German). From early years on, I was exposed to watching Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic, “The Sound of Music” which was based on true to life story of the Von Trapp family in Salzburg.

I hope to visit the place anytime soon, to see snow and pine trees, and alps. And, of course, appreciate Mozart.

Weighty issues

Since January 2008, I am in a constant fixation with weight loss. Which means, frequent visits to the gym and lessening food intake. So far, I have minimize eating red meat. No fast food since Jan 2008 (goodbye Jollibee and McDo).

I lost 5lbs. Not substantial for some, but good enough for me. My pants became loose in an instant. I feel light; and my endurance has improve. In six months time, I have to see my health bulletin if I am normal in all the tests. Last year, I have low good cholesterol, and I have elevated level of fats in my liver. Which is the main reason why I hit the gym and watch my food intake.

My ideal weight should be 143 lbs. I am 148lbs right now. I’m getting there. With much help from semi-vegan diet, yoga and meditation, endurance training and cardio exercises, I can attain my ideal weight in three to four months.

Wish me luck.

Diving Thoughts

For the past two days, I have been thinking of going scuba diving. I don’t know what triggered it. It must be caffeine overload from Gloria Jeans. Or too much separation anxiety for Boracay, which I cannot get enough of.

I have been searching for photos of Tubbataha in Flickr.com, especially for individuals who had been there. I am drooling in envy. Those barracudas, stingray, nemos, and vast clams are just a feast to my eyes.

Which I have to convince myself, that I have to enrol myself in a scuba diving lesson in the next two to three years. Be it in Boracay, or Batangas. Whatever it takes, as long as you want it. It will come.
