Losing weight

There are many people who are striving to lose weight. I am not against it, in fact, it is good to be in shape and physically fit. I am not big but I still need to be physically fit so to speak. I'd like to share some tips on how to lose weight, aside from taking diet pills.
  • Eat more vegetables and fruits every day.
  • Eat enough portion every meal
  • No, no, don't skip meal. Never do that. Especially, breakfast which is the most important meal of the day. It keeps you going throughout the day.
  • Avoid too much sugar like soda
  • Avoid eating junk foods
  • And lastly exercise regularly.
Those are just simple tips but they can be very helpful. Good luck!

Trapped in the Drive - Thru

Check out the video above. It is Weird Al Yankovic "Trapped in the Drive-thru". It is a parody of R. Kelly's Trapped in the closet. I thought Weird Al's version is way better than R. Kelly's which is ridiculous. Enjoy the video. And listen carefully to the lyrics. It is very hilarious!

Wow, time actually runs fast. Today is the 2nd day of August. Why August is the 8th month of the year? I was just wondering how people came up with Month names. Let's start with August. It is the 8th month of the Gregorian calendar. In Astrology, August begins with the sun in the sign of Leo and ends in the sign of Virgo. This month was originally named "Sextilis" in Latin because it was in the first place, the sixth month in the ancient Roman calendar in which started with March. Then it later became the eighth month when January and February were added to the beginning of the year. August was renamed in honor of Augustus. Actually, August originally had 29 days in the Roman calendar. Augustus took two days from February and added it to August when Sextilis was renamed in his honor. Sounds interesting huh?
