Walang malambot na kama, sa killer kong insomya baby

A few weeks ago my buddy Jonas asked me to mention his latest venture on this blog. He's recently established a company that distributes herbal supplements, and their first product is Sleepasil, a supplement for improving (what else) sleeping habits.

Anyway, I had meant to blog about it earlier, but I wanted to test the product out for myself, because I really do have serious sleeping problems. Just take a look at the timestamps of my last few posts: 05:33:00 AM, 02:55:00 AM, 12:47:00 AM, 11:12:00 PM, 05:54:00 AM, 03:44:00 AM.

So I figured I'd try Sleepasil, and then I'd blog about it if it's effective (of course, if it turned out to be a shitty product, I'd never mention it). I finally got around to buying it last night. I got ten pills (12 pesos each) at Watson's in Gateway.

After wrapping up work at around 4AM, I figured I could take a pill right then, just in time for bed as soon as I got home. But once I got downstairs, I got this pang of hunger, so I ended up buying a chicken caesar sandwich from 7-Eleven. The sandwich came with a free soda, and while it probably wasn't the best thing to be having after having a sleeping pill, I downed all of it anyway. I'm an idiot that way.

I felt relaxed as soon as I was home and in my bed. This was about 4:30AM. I stayed relaxed (and awake) until about 8:30AM, before sleep mercifully came. This was the part that wasn't very good.

Ok, so why am I writing about this? Because when I woke up (at around 11:30AM) I felt so refreshed, and I didn't feel drowsy at all. I'm not even talking about the drowsiness you get after a sedative, but the regular drowsiness you get when waking up normally. I just felt so... fresh.

(I even had a vivid dream. Oddly enough, it featured Tim Cone and the rest of the coaching staff of the Alaska Aces, who were trying to figure out how to break the team's four-game losing streak in the PBA Philippine Cup. It's probably because I watched Alaska a couple of times over the weekend, in person last Friday when they played against Purefoods, and then again Sunday night on television against Ginebra. There was a moment in Friday night's game when Alaska's useless assistant coach Luigi Trillo started chewing out and shouting at Willie Miller. The incident struck me as funny, because, c'mon, what the fuck could Luigi Trillo possibly teach Miller about basketball? But I digress.)

So, yeah, if you're having sleeping problems, especially if you want to have a really restful sleep (or if you want to have a dream about the Alaska Aces coaching staff), check out Sleepasil. I think they're still giving away free samples at their blog if you ask.



jae, parang ang tagal ng 4:30am to 8:30 am before the pill took effect.. hmm.. tama ba pagkakaintindi ko?

P.S. natawa ako dun sa part about Luigi Trillo! *lol*


actually, matagal nga. pero nung simula pa lang, nafi-feel ko na yun effect. hindi lang talaga ako nakatulog.

kagabi dalawang pills ung ininom ko. mas effective. ended up sleeping in about an hour. pero feeling ko may kinalaman dun yung fact na puyat ako the night before.


meron akong free samples galing kay jon. gusto mo sayo na lang. i myself have no trouble going or staying asleep.

sabi ko nga baka hinahalo nila yun sa mga pagkain sa mango tree pag chicks ang kumakain hehe.
