The hubby is going crazy over his mountain bike (MTB). He cleans his bike daily. He wants to bike every day. He thinks about his bike and what to improve on it all the time. Minsan hindi na normal at magastos pa, pero pinapabayaan ko na lang kasi nakikita ko naman na nag-eenjoy sya. At ako rin! Ang motto ko kasi, “if you can’t beat them, join them.” Haha.
As early as Friday night, we were already in Bacoor because the hubby didn’t have classes the next day.

Last weekend was filled with eating and biking, hence, the title. It started on Friday night when the hubby and I, along with my in-laws, went to Blue Bay Walk on Macapagal Blvd. My PILs suddenly decided to dine out to remember the 6th death anniversary of the hubby’s aunt (we miss you, Mamala!) in advance.
Conti’s Pasta con Gambas hits the spot (magluluto ako nito sa Bacoor one weekend!)

I just found out that a friend has to undergo surgery because of a myoma or fibroid that grew in her uterus. Hearing news like this scares the hell out of me. I used to be afraid of doctors and going to hospitals but I have overcome the fear over time. But still, I can’t help but be paranoid about my own health when I hear other people sharing something negative about their health.
I am particularly concerned with my reproductive health. When I landed my first job, I started scheduling a trip to the OB-Gyne for my annual check-up. This includes breast exam, pap smear and vaginal ultrasound to identify any growths or abnormalities in my reproductive system. So far, the only thing they have spotted inside my uterus was a growing fetus and that surely made me very happy (yes, despite the saddening outcome in the end).

I don’t feel good today. Actually, it’s ever since last week. My cough and cold remains active with no hint of disappearing anytime soon. I fight with them by drinking lots and lots of fluids and taking a daily dose of Vitamin C.
As much as possible, I try not to depend on medicines to get better. I think the last over-the-counter drug I bought was Ascof Lagundi and it was like, months ago? The poor cough syrup was not effective on me, though. I ended up producing more phlegm than usual which led to longer recovery.
Battling with cough and cold is hard. But at least I only get sick once or twice a year and they’re just simple ones like fever, cough and cold. In my seven years of stay in the city, I have not been hospitalized yet. God knows I never want this to happen, not even once. I absolutely dread hospitals. I know most people do.
