Quote of the Week

No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body. 
No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously 
whether she will or will not be a mother.

The 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition: Final

Last Saturday,  March 17, I watched the last presentation of 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition.  The countries presented on that night were Italy with special participation of our country. The first country performed was Italy so without further ado here's the video I captured during the fireworks display.

After the presentation of Italy, there were presentations performed by different artists like Rico Blanco.  Afterwards, the winners for the competition were announced.  Below are the winners:

First Place:  Canada
Second Place: Australia and Finland
Third Place:  Netherlands

Being the country-host Philippines performed a special participation.  Below's the video.

The video for Philippines was not complete during that time, there's a technical difficulties.  I decided to go home but after 10 minutes they resume the presentation but I did not came back.  Overall, the presentations were great and I really enjoy the show.  I'll definitely go back to this show next year but I do hope that the organizer will be much organize in the event like lane separation of people who had kids with them and those who aren't have.  Also, congratulations to the winners!

There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire, 
which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity,
 but which kindles up and beams 
and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.

Peak Running Shoes

Last month, I purchased a new running shoes to replaced my 14-month old Umbro running shoes.  I decided to replace my old running shoes because I felt pain in my left knee during a 7-km run although it goes away after two weeks of rest.  Also, there's a part of my old shoes that's totally worn out telling me to replace it. 
Peak Sport Products Co., Limited (Chinese: 匹克; pinyin: pǐ kè) is a Chinese sportswear/sports equipment company founded in 1989. PEAK SPORT S.R.L. (PEAK International) was established in 2000. PEAK International is based in Italy which focused on and new products and styles for our consumers, and distributing the PEAK brand all over the world. The company listed in Hong Kong in September 2009 and has a market capitalisation of US$1.4 bn. Peak’s turnover is likely to exceed US$500m sometime in 2011. -
I bought this pair of shoes for a discounted price of PhP1,300 (roughly $30 in 1 US dollar = 42.8500 Philippine pesos exchange rate).  This is the only pair of running shoes I used in my recent trainings and runs.  I still used my old Umbro shoes when I go to gym.

If I have extra money, I would buy another pair of shoes that I will use in running events/races only because ideally a runner should have two pairs of shoes, one for training and one for the race.
