Most of my life I was active, but last year I encountered a hurdle in maintaining that. I got diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which held me back from keeping fit and working out. I’ve written about it here, but let me give you a glimpse of the sickness and my drive to get back in shape through my Power Mac #NoExcuses entry.
The challenge of Power Mac’s #NoExcuses contest is to share your fitness journey. This is mine, as I strive to get back in shape after an autoimmune flare-up. I got a little anxious with the thought of posting this video. I’ve been sharing a lot of my sickness journey online, but never thought I’d decide to share some of these videos/photos. I took them because I always document stuff even if I don’t plan on posting them. But when I saw the Power Mac Center #NoExcuses contest and felt the urge to join it, I knew it had to be shared.
We arrived in the market past 9AM. When they say “be early in Tsukiji,” it’s to (a) witness the auction that happens at 4 or 5AM or (b) get in line for the freshest catch at the restaurants. It was a Tuesday, so the market wasn’t so full, and we comfortably made our way in. We were there with the plan to eat in a restaurant named Daiwa, which apparently is one of the more affordable, good restaurants in the market. Let me give you a glimpse of our 2-3 hour visit.
Never in my life have I tried any dietary supplement or diet plan. I’ve always tried to fix my eating habits on my own, because I felt it’s something more doable in the long run and it doesn’t make me dependent. To some extent it has worked, but I have to admit that it’s not exactly the strictest, healthiest diet. I’ve seen a lot of these diet plans and meal replacements online, and I was always curious about them and if they actually really worked.
Lucky for me, I got the opportunity to try Big Day Brews, a natural weight loss regimen that contains just the right amount of nutrients your body needs. It’s fresh, delicious, and even has different flavor options to choose from that serve different purposes. The best part? Each person’s Big Day Brews purchase can actually help someone in need.

Korea has always been part of my “immediate to do” list. This is my must do by mid twenties type of list. It was a place a lot of people encouraged me to visit for the food and fashion. This, Japan and Bali were the top three.
One night during a random drinking session in Anton’s rooftop, my friends and I talked about the CebPac sale happening that day. We never really got to travel complete outside of the country, and the places we all wanted to visit were pretty similar. After a few drinks, we ended the night with a trip to Korea.
Korea, truly, did not disappoint. A lot would compare it to Japan, and your favour would really depend on your preference and priority when traveling. I have fallen in love with both.
To give you an idea of South Korea, here are a few things I loved about the place.
I’ve been a little bit out of the loop because of work, a lot of eating (and a lot of working out to make up for it!), and a bit of travel. It’s been a while since I posted on #danielaeats, so I’d like to share with you something I’ve been eating ever since I was a little girl: A Slice of Something Nice.
What WAS the buzz? I heard of this Silantro Fil-Mex place to be a go-to for a lot of people from Kapitolyo, so I had to try it once it hit the southern shores (haha). For someone who works and lives down south (aka Alabang), it really is a burden to drive all the way up north just to eat. Unfortunately for me, about a load of must-visit restaurants are an hour (or more) away, so sometimes I really have to make the trip. Thank God Silantro made its way here!
There was a lot of hesitation when Anton and I were asked if we wanted to join the Gaggan dinner for our Bangkok trip. For one, I was planning on a budget trip, with street food and Chatuchak in mind. I’m also not a big fan of Indian food, though I do enjoy some curry once in a while. Gaggan’s a degustation of progressive Indian food, and is a far cry from my street food budget. I really had to think it through.
