Hi, I'm Cielo Ong, and I will make great things happen. I'm a corporate chic by day, but a 24/7 fashion, art, food, travel and lifestyle enthusiast.

I hope to delight you with my random fascinations, opinions and whatnot on all sort of things as you read through my site.

Feel free to email me on just about anything at cieloong@gmail.com

While everybody else is posting fancy bottled juice cleanse, I’m posting this orange flavored glucose drink (which for the record tasted quite good, except that I tried so hard not to throw up cause I couldn’t drink any water within the 3 hours after intake cause I had to wait to finish all the blood tests) I had two days ago for an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) to find out if I’m diabetic.
Luckily, I’m not. YET. But as my doctor had expected, I have symptoms (Polycystic ovary syndrome included) that suggest that I might be pre-diabetic if I don’t make any adjustments in my lifestyle. Apparently, there’s a science behind my random food cravings and that I get hungry easily even after 2 - 3 hours I’ve taken a full meal. I don’t work out even if I often tell myself I want to try yoga or make use of my gym membership. I just don’t have the discipline and enough time to do it. I try to shake and walk as often as I can, thinking it’s good enough that I’m trying to burn calories than not trying and moving at all. I know, it’s stupid. :(
My genetics (from diabetes to different kinds of cancer served like a buffet - sorry, not a good topic to joke about) mostly contribute to why I’m over my ideal weight, and I refuse to accept that I’m overweight cause all of my family & friends think I’m overreacting that my doctor wants me to lose at least 15lbs. In everybody’s exact words: “You’re not fat. You don’t look fat.” - And I couldn’t agree more with them, thanks to my broad shoulders and tall (enough) height.
With all these being said, my mom, who’s overprotective and a control freak specially when it comes to my health (and I love her ultimately for being the way she is!), and I are thankful that we found out about my current health situation very early, and that we can still do something about it (correct & healthy diet and exercise).
It’s depressing cause I feel like I’m just 24 and too young to restrict myself from so many (junk) food that I love, and that I have to be conscious as early as now. But then I guess it’s better that I can do something about it as soon as I can. Maybe the pressure is the push that I need to actually commit myself to a healthier lifestyle.
So if you have PCOS or there’s any irregularity in your menstruation, or if diabetes is very common in your family, it wouldn’t hurt to get tested and find out if you’re a candidate for it too.
