I am a Bicolano by birth and choice. By any standards, I am a slow runner but I like it that way. I look at running as a healthy and exciting way to make a difference. Together with my fellow runners from our family, school, office and the community, we use running to give back..

MEN’S HEALTH PHILIPPINES : December 2013 Issue


EmoticonWant to own and showcase them abs?  

Don’t look to the Bicolano Penguin for answers. What I have is of the wash basin variety, not the washboard abs. But perhaps the December 2013 Issue of the Men’s Health Philippine magazine can  help.


The December issue features the Brazilian-Japanese model Hideo Muroaka in its cover story. It has the goods on the Brapanese’s training plan for the zen journey to rock-hard abs.The magazine also writes about our Philippine athletes bound for the Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar this December.

For more details, here is the press release from Summit Media:

Shed off the pounds this Christmas holiday with Men’s Health this December

This December, Brazilian-Japanese model Hideo Muraoka shows he is ready for action as he takes on this month’s cover of Men’s Health Philippines for the first time. This season of giving, Hideo shares his coveted training plan followed and outlined by the muscle guy himself to get that rock-hard abs like his.

Men’s Health also shines the spotlight on the country’s top South East Asian (SEA) games-bound athletes before their battle begins in Myanmar this December 11. Get to know Taekwondo’s Galilee Tanaya and Rani Ann Ortega; Archery’s Earl Benjamin Yap; Boxing’s Josie Gabuco, Rogen Landon, and Mark Anthony Barriga; Basketball’s Kevin Louie Alas and Kiefer Ravena; and Wushu’s Daniel Parantac as these champs show you how to sharpen your brain’s innate power to overcome obstacles, and unleash your A-game.

So what does it take to win? "You have to learn how to let go of the bad shots. If you learn how to accept that you’ll have bad shots, it will gradually cancel out and you’ll eventually shoot good shots until you can perfect it. Let go and have fun," shares 2007 Asian Archery Champion Earl Yap.

For the 2-time UAAP Champion Kiefer Ravena it’s about accepting criticisms. "Critics are your number one fans. They’re there when you do something bad. And I like to believe they’re still there when you do something good. Be motivated na lang to prove them wrong. Instead of looking at the negative, try to see the positive side, na concerned sila."
