    Glee: I'm the, bad cop, good cop kind of conversation.


    Hey Zesties, welcome to the simulcasts episode of the gleeful talk show and the nerdy fan girl podcast. This episode crosses over topics that would fit the two podcasts. So I thought that might as well do a simulcast. Right? And so today we are going to talk about a Filipino animation series adapted from a comic book series, entitled Trese, which is now available on Netflix . So I haven't read the comics yet, but I'm glad to be talking today with my guest slash co-host, who has read the comics and watch the anime as well. He is  currently based in New Zealand, but which is also from my hometown Cebu. Please welcome Ray Don Lim.


    Hi Ray. Welcome to the show.


    Ray: Hi glee. Glad to be here.


    Glee: Great. Thank you for being on the show and yes. So Trese before anything else? We'll try not to be, talking a lot of spoilers. So would that Zesties these will still, we will still like to watch it, but can you talk about what, in a nutshell, on a nutshell, what Trese is about.


    Ray: So Trese is actually a mid two thousands comics that was created by sir Butch and  Bellissimo. It's basically action detective story that revolves around Philippine mythology. The main character is Alexandra Trese. She is the I believe the Babaylan-Lakambini . Basically she keeps a balance between the human world and the world of the the spirit world, basically in the Philippines.


    So the anime is a little bit more action oriented than the comics. Let the guys out there know, but it's beautiful. It's something that we could call our own. And it's something that I on a personal note wish could be a little, could be more mainstream, internationally.


    Glee: Great. so you've mentioned about Babaylan-Lakambini, and I know you are also fascinated about Filipino mythology. So for  for the benefit of our Zesties, So what is buh-bye land beanie or, I mean, these words might be separate on their own. I think?


    Ray: Yep. So ,Lakambini, I'm not entirely sure. But Babaylan that basically priestess or yeah, priestess in our old times and I might be wrong, but to the best of my knowledge Babaylans can only be women and you know, they are our connection to the gods. So. Yes while our pre-colonial times in the Philippines of

    Glee: Hey Zesties!Welcome to the Gleeful Talk SHow where we share zesty stories to cultivate the happiness. And here within, in this episode, we are going to talk all about holistic health and Reiki. Our guest for today is a certified holistic health practitioner and hormonal coach who incorporates Reiki in the practice of holistic health.


    She is passionate about inspiring people to live a healthier lifestyle. Please welcome Tanya Alkin. Hi, Tanya. Welcome to the show.


     


    Tania: Hi glee. Thank you. Thanks so much for having me.


    Glee: Thank you for coming in the show and yeah, holistic health.


    can you talk about what holistic health means?


     


    Tania: Yeah, of course. So holistic health is looking at the whole picture of the person. So not only their body, but their mind and their spirit, because that's what we are.


    We are try beings, mind, body, and spirit. And so we combine those three aspects into the healing modality, as well as a few other things like detox strategies, just simply because of the chemical world we live in. You know, soul work as well. We incorporate functional and herbal medicine to help support the body even further.


    So yeah, things like that movement, obviously, because yeah. We're not meant to be so sedentary.


    Glee: Oh, yeah. Great. And when did you start your holistic health journey?


     


    Tania: Yeah. So basically I guess I've always been into the natural way of doing things. I haven't always been, you know, clean eating and looking after myself.


    No, definitely not. But but yeah, you know, it's always been a part of me to do things the natural way first if I can. And so when I had my first daughter, she was around 18 months old and I decided to Really look at the chemicals that were in food, especially packaged food. That that's what I was kind of focusing on.


    Anything with numbers in them, anything with names that I had no idea what it was. I started to eliminate from my diet and that also included things that I put on my body as well. Like bath and beauty products. Also things like cleaning products, I just. I got rid of it all and I replaced it with natural cleaner and greener products.


    And so after doing that and feeling like I was ready for the next step in my health journey, I started noticing that there were a lot of people going vegan. And I was really curious as to why, because, you know, we're always taught. We get our calcium from dairy and we get our iron from, meat and, and I thought, well, how can they go vegan and still be healthy?


    You know? And I looked into it. I literally typed into Google, like, why is everyone going be


    that's me?


    Well, like, you know, obviously there was the animal cruelty aspect of veganism which I think we all kind of know that part, but, but yeah, there was also all these health benefits. I was very skeptica

     Probably four months, four or five months after I started, I met my current girlfriend Jenny she at the time was working in that city. So. What happened was I was a student, but she was working for a German company, but in the Netherlands. So the company that she was working for is a very big like automobile company, a German automobile company, which is nothing special because there are dozens of German, automobile companies.


    But she was living there for. A couple of months already. And basically what happened was as I was studying. And she was working, there were, there are a couple of events that happened in the city. So these events are actually international organizations.  Have these sponsor, these events, and one of these organizations is called InterNations.

    Excerpt transcript:


     


    Khen: Yeah. Actually I'm this personality type temperament theory.


    I've got that in the book personality plus from Florence Littauer she's an American author and have been studying personality for 25 plus years already. And I'm really, amazed with this book because. It has comprised all the behaviors for me to know more about people. So the four personality types, according to her and to the book is that we have sanguine when we call them popular sanguine.


    When we have the perfect melancholy, the powerful choleric and the peaceful phlegmatic. So there are two impairments and according to Florence she said that every person has inborn temperament. So these are our raw material. This is who we are, but , we are harnessed and being changed through circumstances, experiences, and environment.


    That's why we create different personality types. So there will be combination of the fourth temperament that makes sense. People  unique and becomes who they are. So that's basically the personality equip the environment theory.


    Glee: Oh, all right. So there are adjectives  before the temperamental.


     could you take us through what comprises, why they are described that way?


    Khen: I believe Florence need that name  to describe every personality. So for example, a sanguine when Florence, the author made it called popular because sanguine, when personality are really very enthusiastic.


    They are popular because they become life of the party. So, as we go along, as we thought through with each personality, maybe you would be thinking who are those people? So I'll just share some of the characteristics of sanguinebites. So they are expressly active and they're really loved people.  They get their power when they have a lot of people around them, they are outgoing and.


    Mostly they're good in telling stories because they are fun. they're inspiring and charming. And probably they're also good on stage because they're really lost people. So, especially when you are outside they're really good in speaking. Also sanguine wins, have memory for callers.


    So for example, even if it's very basic work like cooking popcorn, they make it more enjoyable. They make people happy and also sanguine twins are like a child. They are wide eyed and very curious, creative and colorful. Also sanguine greens are really cannot say no. So these are the negative things of sanguine Wednesday.


    You cannot say no, because we are people pleasers. So they want to be people around them and it be in the end, they could not say no, they're always saying yes, even if they d
