"Papasok kang estudyante, lalabas kang mandirigma.” No, I’m neither talking about signing up for the CrossFit gym nor climbing up the Himalayas to learn the secrets of the shaolin monks. This is the caption of a meme spreading on social media that describes the daily ordeal of commuters in Metro Manila.

Finish Strong

Whoa! I woke up one morning and my six-pack washboard abs were gone!

Alright, maybe I overplayed that. For one, I never had sculpted abs, and two, weight gain does not happen overnight.

Still and all, the truth remains that after a seemingly endless pigging out during the long holidays, my denims hardly fit me anymore, stooping down to tie my shoelaces is a bit arduous, and climbing the stairs to my room requires some strenuous effort. “Maybe, the feeling of being HEALTHY (read: heavy) is all in my mind,” I try to console myself. But the weighing scale does not lie; I have, beyond any doubt, gained some pounds.

The Sweetest Treat of Them All

Truth be told, I have an uber–sweet tooth. Yes, La Paz batchoy and KBL (short for kadyos, baboy, langka, a staple food of traditional Ilonggo cuisine) excite me, but nothing pleases my palate, in a true heavenly fashion, more than a delectable dessert. Sometimes, one bar of Snickers can chase my worries away. A cup of caramel sundae can boost my creativity. Chocolate chip cookies are my best allies when reviewing for exams or cramming for my term papers. Needless to say, whenever my hectic academic and apostolic life has gotten out of hand, something sweet can save my day.
