Wipe Your Eyes

What do you think of this song? (Weird nga lang yung start but nice, no? :))
Countdown: 19 days to Maroon5 concert!

She’s So Mean

I kn-kn-know a girl, she gets what she wants all the time
‘Cause she’s fine
But for an angel, she’s a hot hot mess
Make you so blind
But you don’t mind

‘Cause she’s an uptown, get-around, anything-goes girl, girl
She’s a hardcore, candy-store, gimme-some-more girl, girl

She’ll make you take her to the club, but then she leaves with her friends
She likes to stay late at the party, ’cause the fun never ends
And all her clothes are on the floor and all your records are scratched
She’s like a one-way ticket ’cause you can’t come back!

[Chorus:]
Saying yeah… you want her, but she’s so mean
(You’ll never let her go. Why don’t you let her go?)
Yeah… you want her, but she’s so mean
(You’ll never let her go. Why don’t you let her go?)

You kn-kn-know that if you don’t shut your mouth, she’ll freak out
You better get your shit together, ‘cause she’s bringing you down now
Yeah boy you better, you better
‘Cause she’s an uptown, get-around, anything-goes girl, girl
She’s a hardcore, candy-store, gimme-some-more girl, girl

She’s got her wicked sense of humor, can’t believe what she says
She drinks Bacardi in the morning ‘til it goes to her head
And all you want is just to hold her, but she don’t go for that
She has a hard time coming when she can’t hit back

[Chorus]

Every now and then, she makes you just a little bit crazy
She’ll turn a knife into your back and then she’s calling you baby, crazy

She’ll make you take her to the club, but then she leaves with her friends
She likes to stay late at the party, ’cause the fun never ends
And all her clothes are on the floor and all your records are scratched
She’s like a one-way ticket ’cause you can’t come back!

Need new RUNNING shoes!

I feel like my current Mizuno Wave Precision 11 is now overused and needs to be replaced. Lately I always get a left knee pain whenever I run in them. But just to give credit, I probably logged a thousand kilometers with it and I am VERY happy+satisfied.

While I haven’t decided, I’m patiently using my Nike Lunar Glide 2, a pair of shoes which has been kept in the box a month after I bought it and last used it in my Condura 2011 half marathon. Reason why I never used it again was that it killed by toe nail (big toe!) and I had to wear nail polish for over 6 months (not the typical me). Argh. I really need new shoes now, and so far I’m looking at getting either of the shoes below.

I’m still quite confused as both have good feel on my feet. Clearly the NB one looks a lot better (Pink!), but I’m leaning more towards the Precision12 since I loved the previous version 11. (Note: Mizuno claims there isn’t much difference between them) As I checked some websites though, the Precision version 13 came out fast but probably not yet available for sale in Manila so that’s definitely a red flag if there were complaints with the 12. Or should I just wait for the 13s?

Women’s Road – New Balance 890v2

In this inspired update to the wildly popular 890, the New Balance 890v2 takes “lightest” even lighter! Engineered from the ground up, this neutral trainer is a new kind of lightweight shoe, each part designed with purpose. The full ground contact outsole is just as compatible with midfoot and forefoot strikes as it is with a traditional heel strike. Innovative diamond shapes cut in relief from the extra-durable REVlite midsole provide as much function as fashion, and the coordinating diamond motif on the outsole helps with grip and transition.

TYPE:Lightweight

WEIGHT:225 grams (7.9 oz)

Features

  • Flat, soft laces slide through uniquely flat lacing holes, locking them in place and preventing top-of-foot discomfort
  • Created to meet the competitive requirements of world-class runner and Team New Balance member Andy Baddeley, whose name appears on the men’s 890
  • Blown rubber outsole is extremely flexible, light, and helps provide cushioning
  • Synthetic/mesh upper provides lightweight comfort and support
  • Removable full-length insert of ABZORB® cushioning provides added comfort
  • Welded seams for no-sew material application
  • Abzorb® Strobel Board runs full length of shoe to maximize shock absorption and comfort

Can it be September already?

I’m sure everyone knows that Maroon5 will be back LIVE in Manila on September 18th and I just cannot wait! The setlist was released last night so if you’re going to the concert, it’s time to start singing and memorize the lyrics (if you haven’t already) haha!

My iPhone playlist has been updated as we speak. If you’ll be my passenger from now and September 18th, I hope you do not mind and get sick of listening to Maroon 5 songs. hehe 🙂
