food for the brain

>> Wednesday, September 17

"One cannot think well, love well or sleep well if one has not dined well."
- Virginia Woolfe

I'm so swamped with work this week. I have to write eight 500 word articles to be passed this Friday on just about everything - from divorce lawyers to hair extensions to medical secretary training - and that's about half of what I have to do for this week. That might be normal to a lot of people out there, especially experienced writers, but me? shesh! It's a brain-wrenching nose-bleeding task for me. But I gotta do what I gotta do, it's part of work.

Oh well at least this gives me an excuse to stock up on chocolates - its food for the brain you know. :) If you're in the same situation that I am right now.. stock up on these foodies to keep your brains up and running healthy...

Fish: The original “brain food” contains lots of omega-3 fatty acids and fish oils, especially cold water fish like salmon and cod. Omega-3s are beneficial in a number of ways, including promoting neuronal growth, improved cholesterol, and fortification of myelin sheaths which facilitate communication between neurons.

Vegetables: This is a great source of antioxidants, which may reduce the risk of developing cognitive impairment by diminishing oxidative stress. Spinach, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower are among the top candidates.

Fruits: Like vegetables, fruits are rich in antioxidants. However, fruit tastes better. Some of your healthiest options are blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, strawberries, raspberries, plums, avocados, oranges, red grapes, red bell peppers, cherries and kiwis.

Water: Be sure to get enough to keep your body and brain hydrated. Dehydration can cause a headache now, and can lead to long-term neuronal damage sustained from elevated stress hormones.

Chocolate: Last (my favorite) is cocoa beans, which contain the flavanol epicatechin and antioxidants. Dark chocolate is best (that's why I bought two bars yesterday), and avoid candy bars with lots of added sugars. Also, recent research suggests that chocolate can improve memory. (yay for all the chocolate lovers out there!)


of music lovers and couch potatoes

>> Monday, September 15

I've always enjoyed listening to music (who doesn't right?). I have no preference whatsoever to any genre. Choosing what type of music I listen to usually depends on my mood. Right now, I'm a bit stressed so I'm listening to Bossa nova. It helps me soothe my nerves. Who knows what I'll feel like listening to later on.. :)

TV shows, on the other hand, are entirely different things. These days I watch TV when I have the time. I spend most of my time online working or curling in bed and reading a book..


For the love of books

>> Thursday, September 11

I'm so happy today.. I just received the books I purchased from eBay. This is a first online purchase for me.. teehee... I never thought I would ever find the guts to buy things online (much more eBay?), but I did. Yay for me! I just purchased two - one by Barbara Michaels and one by Jude Deveraux.

Since I spend most of my time at home working, I never got enough time to visit bookstores and search for a good read. The last book I purchased was around April or May I think. And that's a new one for me since a bookworm that I am always had the time to look for a good book (well that was before). Because I spend hours and hours online why not search for a good read on the net right? I really don't like reading ebooks, mind you, I prefer curling up in my bed and read. I know I know this will just strain my eyes or something. But who cares!? I only read ebooks when I just couldn't find a copy or couldn't afford one at the moment..hehehe I'm actually reading an ebook this past few days - Eragon by Christopher Paolini - as recommended by my good friend Z. The book is way better than the movie, as usual, and I can't wait to get my hands on the sequels - Eldest and Brisingr.

Anywho, I'm quite pleased with my
binge buying this week. I actually bought two books from the National Bookstore last Tuesday. They were on sale, and I just cant help it?! Lurchie prodded me to buy them that's why, and I find the plots interesting. I'm a sucker for suspense and thrillers and I just couldn't say no to these two.

By the way check out this new blog Books3x. It's a collab of bookworms sharing interesting reads and reviews on books as well.


Diablo III is here!!!

>> Monday, September 8

Finally, Blizzard Entertainment just unveiled the third installation of my all time favorite game - Diablo III. I have been so addicted with Diablo II back in college. I played the game up to the wee hours of the morning. I could never take note of how much time I spent playing this game.

Anyway, Diablo III has a whole new set of characters - Witchdoctor, a whole new Barbarian (these two have been unveiled so far) - and each class has both the male and female versions. The new Diablo III has new graphics that can display characters and monsters in more realistic 3D environments. Move over WoW, D3 is here!

Oh wow! Like I''m jumping up and down with excitement here... I'll expect a lot of sleepless nights.. teeehee check out these sneak preview..

I love this game!!! :D


happy bug

>> Friday, September 5

So its Friday again. Time just wheezed past by without me realizing it.
I can smell the cool breeze of December already. Finally my favorite time of the year. There's something magical about the "ber" months.. Maybe its just me but things seem like they are in a slow motion yet time itself is on a fast forward. I'm not making sense am I?! teeeheee.. I got the "ber" bug.. This kind of bug makes your mind float to neverland and just makes you smile without any reason at all. shesh! Maybe I am just going crazy..

I can't help but feel... (how do I put it??) simply happy. I'm really in a good mood today. I still have a million of things to do but what the heck.. Let's dance and sing "it's so nice to be happy... shalala.."


On another topic... remember I was ranting and raving about how unreliable my ISP is.. Out of anger and frustration that I could not contact their so-called 24-hour customer service, I sent an "angry" email to them venting out all my frustrations on their very unreliable internet service, and guess what they finally replied..

bahh!!! It sounds so unpersonal right? Like a script or something, they probably just copied it from a manual and pasted it on the mail.. shesh! Oh and just so you'll know I sent my "angry" mail last August 19 and got my reply just today. Oh well.. better late than never... heheheh

Have your ever had those days when everything just turns out bad? Well today is one of those days... I started working early to organize some things 'cause I have to train a new employee, the first few hours went well when suddenly this *dang* internet connection just went crazy again. (I hate Globelines! They suck! shesh!)

So I went out, bought this Prepaid SmartBro thing.. then it went well (for a couple of hours).. then... it's gone again?! What the F?!!! You gotta love the ISPs in the Philippines.. they are all pieces of shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......... (forgive me for my language.. I'm just really pissed off today... )
