Say Yes To Healthier Lifestyles!



Last Saturday, I said "Yes!". Almost everyday, someone ask me why do I keep on working out eventhough there's no abs on my stomach. And I always shot a one-liner response, "We're not getting younger!" See, it is not just about the physical apperance why we should exercise. That's why, I encourage my friends to say yes to healthier lifestyle! I just thank God a 5-Star Hotel is doing this kind of affair every year. Thanks for a Global Wellness Day!
