• Swimming regularly and properly. It exercises my body and it makes me aware of what I can do in the pool. When I am able to do just one more lap, it gives me a sense of accomplishment... Though I still have to work on my breaststroke.
  • Reading books. I am particularly fond of science and mathematics book both in reference form or in popular form. I also read a lot of science fiction, graphic novels and contemporary literature. On top of my head, I read a lot of: Isaac Asimov, Alice Walker, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Alice Munro, Philip Pullman, Mark Twain, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking and Calvin & Hobbes.
  • Eating good food. I like Thai and Japanese food. I also like pizza and pasta, once in a while. But my favorite is the Filipino bulalo.
  • Spending time with my nieces Adrienne and Francinne - be it doing math tutorials, playing 'Plant and Zombies' or Super Mario, or just hanging out and talking about what's going on with their lives.
  • I try to meditate at least 15 minutes everyday. I'm also reading books on Buddhism.
  • Blogging and writing my lists down.
  • Yellow flowers.
  • Thinking about science and nature calms me and engages me. I like clouds, turtles, and stars.
