I happened to find out about this book thru a friend whom I trust with good books and good music. I wish I can put her Facebook page here but we all have private lives we don’t want to make complicated. I was at a loss of what book to read that I almost went to my classics which I preferred not to read yet until I’m old and gray. I saw my friend’s review of this book and I quickly jumped on the idea that it must be really good.


Kettlebell Complex To Reinforce Upper Body Strength

Posted in health by Fated Blue on August 21, 2014

I’m not totally owning this complex but I just had to try this one out since I began thinking about it last night. I simply wanted to improve my cleans but at the same improve my arm strength. I can’t afford to strictly press my 32kg yet so I figured bent over rows would do nicely.

The complex goes like this:

Movie Review: Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Film (2012 and 2014)

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on August 21, 2014

First and foremost, I am truly apologetic that I was unable to write a review on the first film of the Live Action adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin though I was able to watch it on Day 1 as well last 2012.

To give justice to it, I’d like to make a review of it together with the awesome sequel I watched last night which, as hinted earlier, was also its day 1.

Details of my 30 minute kettlebell workout

Posted in health, life, Special posts by Fated Blue on August 2, 2014

I was particularly in the mood to push my usual workout time to 30 minutes rather than my usual 20. It may not seem much for most people but those that know how it is to train with kettlebells will definitely feel the difficulty of adding 50% more time than usual. I guess it had something to do with me eating a whole bunch of Pancit Malabon and Chicken Drumsticks from yesterday’s 4:00 PM birthday celebration.

It looks small but underneath the Pancit strands are 4 pairs of chicken legs. PAIRS, GODDAMMIT, PAIRS!


Emphasis on 4:00 PM meaning I ate a truckload of food hours before my day was up. That would be both a dietician’s and a bodybuilder’s nightmare. When I carried it off to a nearby table, I was pretty sure it weighed more than 600 grams. I’m not sure how much calories that would translate to but I’m pretty sure it was not less than 1000. I mean, I seriously ate more than enough carbs, fats, and cholesterol in one big serving to give me enough energy to last me 24 hours with only water. I wanted the excess energy to get out of my system and I also had the day to myself mostly so I couldn’t really lose.

I’ll be giving this one in detail which also includes my usual warm ups. Some of these workouts have been blogged previously which also had videos.
