Jogging at Ayala

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. –Albert Einstein

Bicycle, jogging, and other fitness enthusiasts will find the Ayala “fitness” park as a good alternative to the usual choices: Cebu City Sports Center and the IT Park. The greens in the park give shade and a fresher feel in your fitness activities.

A good number of people in fitness mode frequent the place starting 4PM. There is enough space for parking for those with cars. Ayala charges Php 20.00 per hour but in a lot of occasions, the parking attendant is usually absent or to busy ticketing other vehicles.

One round along the interior streets of the park covers about 600 meters. The exterior, meanwhile, runs about one kilometer. Both are enough stretch for your jog, walk, or bike.

The place is located within the Cebu Business Park and at the back of the Colegio dela Inmaculada Concepcion (CIC) Cebu City campus. From Gorordo Avenue, you can take Ayala road to get to the place. A small access road near the Carreta Cemetery will also lead you there.

Mosquito coil = 100 cigarettes

Bumped into an article from Times of India which mentions the risk of mosquito repellent coils. Considering that these mosquito coils can irritate/repel mosquitoes, humans are surely negatively affected by the coils’ smoke.

The article reads:

Smoke emitted from one mosquito repellant coil is equivalent to those of 100 cigarettes, thus causing harm to a large number of people in India, an expert said Wednesday.

“Not many people know about it, but the damage done to your lungs by one mosquito coil is equivalent to the damage done by 100 cigarettes. This was according to a recent study conducted in Malyasia,” said Chest Research Foundation director Sandeep Salvi.

The advertisement “Lamok, siguradong tepok.” should now add “Ikaw rin tepok.”
