@miriamq as Katy Perry for Halloween

I don't normally join Halloween festivities but some reason, I felt so excited dressing up for Halloween this year and geared up for the party my group of friends are planning at Republiq Club.

A few days left before the weekend and I finally decided on being Katy Perry in her Last Friday Night (TGIF) video!

Scoured the stores looking for neon colored skirt & blouse but most of the stuff that are out in the stores are from the fall collection so I had to make do with jewel tones to have a brightly colored top & a skirt.  I found a bright pink sweater (P995) from Mango and shortened it. I found the green skirt (P699) at the Lifestyle section at the 2nd floor of Powerplant Mall, made the skirt shorter and sewed on the zipper (P32.75) myself. I made sure I had different colored shoes as well. Had to spend extra for purple shoes (the pink ones didn't have my size anymore, boohoo)  but I thought it's reusable so it should be ok. The earrings were P50 from Rockwell Lifestyle section, bangles (P599) from a store at Hip in Rockwell. Bought a cheap pair of nerdy glasses (P149) from SM and wrapped packaging tape around the bridge part. Found a set of orange tumblers in SM home section for P100. I even tried to make fake braces from this youtuber using a paper clip and silver beads but couldn't find orthodontic gum that would keep them in my mouth... I lost them somehow at dinner over at my friend's place, but somehow pulled off the look with crimped hair courtesy of Jeffrey Robles, my hair & makeup artist. The result? See for yourself! Had so much fun putting it together!  And check out the hotties that Katie found! Happy Halloween!

Crossfit Craze in Manila

As a fitness enthusiast, I love it when workouts are fun & varied. My friend Cristalle Henares introduced me to this cross training workout now avalable in Manila: Crossfit.

Crossfit is a fitness and lifestyle program that constantly uses different workouts (WODs or Workouts of the Day) everyday. It builds your competency to prepare you for any mental and physical consistency.  It is designed to optimize physical competence and enhance cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. According to, it is the "principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide."

Executed at high intensity, workouts are no longer than 30 minutes and are timed, measured and done repeatedly. Workouts are based on organic, multi-jointed, natural movements. Proper technique and form are encouraged for maximum benefits.

Since Cristalle and I were newbies to the program, we were asked to an intro WOD composed of four types of exercise, as much rounds as we could within 20 minutes plus about 10 minutes ab workout afterwards.

Warm up: 20 reps jump rope

Main Workout: 1) wall balls, 2) pull ups, 3) box jumps and 4) burpees.

Ab workout: partner cranberry throws, ball passes up & down, & side to side

Cool down: Stretching

In the end, we was able to do 5 rounds but it was very intense. I had to stop a few times for about a minute to drink some water and catch my breath. But I love it! It was not only a really good workout, it was a lot of fun as well!

They hold Crossfit workouts in their Libis Gym, near Eastwood and at the AFP Gymnasium. You may contact them on twitter at @crossfitmnl.
