A new inspiration: Leo Babauta

Leo might look like a regular bloke but he is a successful and well-loved blogger with achievements that is so inspirational. For one, I do admire how he has turned from an unfit smoker to a vegan marathon runner.

In his blog, he writes mostly about living a minimalist life.

Can you believe that he is actually 39-years-old? He looks like a late-twenties to me.

Ok, I am gonna try practicing whatever he says and hopefully, when I am 39, I still look like a 28-year-old without having to put on a kilo of make-up to my face. :P

Here are some of my favourite posts from his blog:

Open Source Blogging: Feel Free to Steal My Content - It's really interesting that his work and blog is uncopyrighted and his reasons behind it.

iPhone app: My Diet Diary

I have been trying to lose a few kilos lately by exercising more and eating less. I am using this application called My Diet Diary on my iPhone and it is so so so useful.

It helps me to calculate my BMR based on my age, weight, height and activity level (sedentary, lightly/moderately/very/extremely active)
I considered myself sedentary because I am sitting at least 8 hours daily.

I can keep track of my daily food intakes and the calories that comes along as
they have a super comprehensive calories database.

Keeping track of my exercise.
I'll just have to enter the duration of my exercise and type of exercise and they will know how many calories that I will be burning.

Summary of my daily diet
See the word burned in orange font?
If it is a positive number, it means that I am burning more calories than I consume. XD

I found that in order to lose a kilo, I need to burn this much of calories:

7709 Kcal = 1 Kg

On the days when I am exercising, I burn about 500Kcal to 1500Kcal per day depending on how vigorous is my exercise and what I eat.
On the days when I am not exercising, I will normally breakeven on the calories consumed and burned.

Meaning to say, if I want to lose a kilo in a week, I will have to exercise vigorously for 5 days a week (7709/1500 = 5.13)
My type of vigorous exercise means 2 hours of stationary cycling class or fast-paced dance.
No easy eh?

My bi-weekly diet diary.
As you can see, my exercise routines include martial art (aikido), biking, aerobics and hip hop dancing

Cool application eh? Hopefully I can get back to my original weight.

Oh by the way, I just discovered how to capture my iPhone screen as what you see on these screen captures above. Can't believe that it is so easy and the function is totally awesome.
Just press the on/off button of your iPhone (on the top right) and press the home button once simultaneously (Remember, if you HOLD both buttons together, it's not going to work. Press on/off button first, hold and press home button ONCE)
Voila! You will heard the camera flashing noise and you can retrieve your screen capture on your Camera Roll.

Andrej Pejic - Oh so hot!

This guy is just too pretty and captivating.. I can't resist from googling more photos of him. :P

The words for him is "femiman" and "androgynous".

Definition of Androgynous:
1: having the characteristics or nature of both male and female

2a : neither specifically feminine nor masculine b : suitable to or for either sex "

He is Andrej Pejic, a 19-years-old Serbian living in Australia.

I love all the three outfits, he looks damn attractive but with a touch of masculinity
@ Gaultier's menswear show, inspired by James Bond



Andrej dressed as a bride...Too beautiful!
He is in Gaultier's both men and women show

Looks at his catwalk as the bride of the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Spring 2011 Fashion Show
Looking all serene and beating all the female models
Noticed that he slipped a bit at 1:16

Exclusive interview with Andrej Pejic


How? Are you captivated by him already? :)

Facebook fan page issue

I created a Facebook page under the name of a well-known local Chinese restaurant a few years back. It was because I was doing a promotion using their cash voucher as giveaways. Other than that, the fanpage is not related and does not belong to the business owner in anyway.

It has been a few years and I haven't been doing anything with the page until today when I received a threat from their company. I really don't like the tone of the message and if they could have ask me nicely, I would just delete the page.

So, I am just gonna sit back, relax and do nothing. :P

Legal action huh?

I used to have a fanpage with a growing fans of about 12,000 members (How sad cause I lost it! :( ). Due to a similiar issue, Facebook deleted my page, just like that. Not a chance for me to defend myself. After a lot of research, I finally found Facebook contact email on this issue but they just never reply my email and that is the end of the story. Let's see what will happen this time.
