WetShop Aquathlon 2012

 I have been waiting for this event since last year. For some body who wants to be in a Triathlon but cannot afford to get a bike yet, this is the way to start.

I have prepared for this event for 2 weeks and what I like about this is the way you challenge yourself. The feeling of making it to the finish line is such a great accomplishment already. And aside from the great accomplishment, it makes me strive harder and train harder. 
Aquathlon consists of a continuous, two-stage race involving swimming followed by running. (wikipedia)

Swim : 800 metres
Run: 3 km
Venue: Philsport Arena

                                        Body Marking . No. 114

Tri-suits need not to be expensive. 
Transition One is one of the cheapest yet one of the best there is. 

Philsport Swimming Pool . 
It's a huge pool and we need to swim for 2 rounds 
to complete the 800 metres.

Getting ready and feeling m ore focused this time

And off we swim! 

Been kicked and hit everywhere , but carried on!

Trying to find a gap here... ;) 

Now for the 2nd round.

Thumbs up for that!

Jump again !

Long glide and keeping your body
 straight helped me a lot!

Need to run all the way to the finish line!


What a great feeling this event was!

Never expected my name will be called. I'm just very happy they did! 

Number 3 is just a number. Being up there feels like a winner already! What's more important was everybody was happy! 

3rd Place  -  30 - 34 Age Category . Finally!!! This is just the start of something better ahead!

         It's also great to meet new people who are into this kind of sport.   
       People were helping and supporting one another during the race. This was such  a great experience and whether you are beginner or a pro, AQUATHLON is 
                                          the next big thing! 



LTO Car Registration Procedure

Registering your car is something you must do once a year. Unfortunately after two months, I didn't realize my car is not registered already. I'm just very lucky I was not caught driving around the metro in an unregistered car. So immediately the next day went to LTO.

Here are the things I did in renewing the car registration:

TIP No. 1: Come early as early as possible.
TIP No. 2: Make 2 Photocopies of your OR and CR . 
TIP No. 3: Always ask if your confused or don't know where to go. 

1. Go to the cashier and pay for the emission testing and insurance. The insurance is optional but since I dont have one I paid for both. ( It saves you from falling in line again).
 Cost: Less than 1500.00

2. Go to the inspector and ask for the form for the emission testing. They are free of charge.

3. Go to the emission testing and present the reciept and the form.

4. Wait for your name to be called for stencil.

5. After stencil, wait for your name to be called for emission testing. Cost for stencil is P 20.00

6. After emission testing, you will get the copy of the insurance you paid.

7. Proceed to the inspector or evaluator and hand in the papers. Wait for a while.

8. Your name will be called and you will be directed to the cashier and it's paytime!!!! Since I was late, I paid  Php 1000.00 for the penalty and everything costs around approximately Php 3500.00

9. After paying, Photocopy the new OR and  present it to the person who releases the sticker and your done.

Hope it helps... It only took me maximum of 3 hours to do everything.
