The Challenge – Failed

26 04 2009

Yup… Unfortunately, I was not able to maintain the hundred pushups challenge. It all went downhill during the 4-day weekend last week. My schedule just got messed up and it totally slipped my mind. I tried my best to catch up but realized that trying to do two sets in a day was a stupid bad idea.

There’s badminton with Kuya’s officemates and then with Alaine, there’s jogging at Ultra and, of course, the five-hour alay lakad to Antipolo Church –> Click on image to view route.

Dear Mr. Ryan Salvanera,

My name is Jasmine Ferrer, a research assistant for the study, “Filipino blogging and political participation,” an independent research funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) Canada through its Strengthening ICT Research Capacity in Asia (SIRCA) grant program. A component of this study aims to: (1) look into the motivation of Filipinos for reading political blogs; (2) determine if and how Filipino political blog readers participate in politics, offline or online; and (3) examine whether reading political blogs have affected the nature and level of their political participation.

We’d like to request your participation as one of the survey respondents for this study. If you’re interested to participate, please provide us your email address so we can send you the survey form in Word file. Feel free to send questions/clarifications to the principal researcher, Ms. Mary Grace P. Mirandilla at or at To learn more about her work, visit Info about the SIRCA grant program can be found at

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you very much.

Jasmine Ferrer
