Before 2010 Ends

Good evening!

First of all, I would like to thank God for all the blessings He has shared to me and to my loved ones as well. If it's not because of our Omnipotent One, I'll never have a very wonderful job like what I have right now. DEO GRATIAS!

Gaya ng aking mga nakaraang taon, ang dami ring nangyari sa taong ito. I must say, maayos naman ang taon na ito para sa akin - not good, but no bad. Sapat lang, ikanga. But those moments were worth it dahil wala akong pinagsisihan sa mga nagawa ko sa taon na ito. What for should I regret for para sa mga sablay ang ikinalabas? Hindi ata ako umaatras, hahaha!

Ayun, ang masasabi ko lang ay maging maganda sana ang pasok ng 2011 sa akin dahil naging maganda ang pasok ng 2010 sa akin. And by the way, gusto ko na ring magpasalamat sa lahat na naging bahagi ng buhay ko sa taon na ito. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

And many thanks to Year 2010. It was a pleasure having you!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!




And yeah... BoA, Britney, and Beyoncé... the angels of my life! Wish they'll have a dream concert... SOON!

Is that it?

Good morning.

As the cool breeze of December caresses my body, I don't feel any sort of relaxation. Maybe because my Christmas was not that happy. But anyway, something outbursting yet fulfilling moment happened to me.

I don't know how to explain it here, but it was one of the unforgettable highlights of my life. Of course, it's not yet the time to share it with you. As Pinoy Big Brother said: "malalaman niyo rin sa TAKDANG PANAHON."

But all I can say: NO REGRETS! I'M NOW OFFICIALLY ADULT! BYE BYE CHILDHOOD!

But still, the childhood in me will never fade away! ;)

Christmas 2010

Good evening.

It was a satisfying Christmas celebration with my family and relatives.




Here is one of our family pictures during Christmas day... YAY!



At last, the 3-B's of my life... BoA, Britney, and Beyoncé!

Life as an Altar Servant

Good morning!



This is the Holy Family Parish in Quezon City! Dito rin nga pala magdalas mag-shoot yung mga artista para sa Teleserye. Pamilyar ba?



Ilang taon na rin ang paninilbihan ko sa simbahang ito, at masasabi kong narito ang malaking bahagi ng puso at isip ko. Ito rin kasi ang kauna-unahang church organisation na sinalihan ko bago ang Special Ministry of the Word sa San Bartolome Parish, and then Living Hope Chorale at Coro de San Lorenzo sa San Exequiel Moreno Parish. And I'm so thankful na nakakapag-serve pa rin ako doon.



And here's my personal photo wearing my sutana. Pasensya na kasi medyo mukha akong bangag dito, hahahah!

Weak Yuletide Spirit

Magandang Madaling Araw!

Guess I'll be celebrating the first few hours of Christmas 2010 here in our call centre company with my colleagues. It will also be my first to have Noche Buena in our company as well. After all, I'm a call centre agent working on graveyard shift. But you know what? My steadfast gratitude to our Creator will never cease as long as my soul exists. And the reason? I'm filled with His perpetual blessings that no other super being could ever do.

As for now, I missed the first Misa de Gallo. And by the way, Misa de Gallo is the tradition of the Filipino Catholics that starts on the dawn of December 16 and ends on the evening of December 24. Since my night-offs are every Friday and Saturday, I still have the chance to attend at least two Misa de Gallos. After all, a faithful member of Roman Catholic Church like me should give praise and thanks to the Omnipotent One through attending the Misa de Gallo.

Honestly speaking, I can't feel the spirit of Christmas. Perhaps, I've been busy in my work for long and I never had a chance to pamper myself. But course, people are still happy despite of the current political and socio-economic status of the Philippines. Ganun kasi ang isang tipikal na Pilipino eh. Kaya nga pinipilit ko ring magpakasaya.

In fact, I asked my mom not to install the Christmas lights anymore since there's an increase in the electricity fee. And besides, lilipas din ang Pasko kahit na walang dekorasyon sa bahay namin. Pero napagtanto ko ring kailangan ding papasukin ang diwa ng Pasko sa aming bahay para man lang maging masaya. I could still remember that I used to be excited whenever Christmas arrives. But now that I'm in the stage of young adulthood, it's like I can't go with the the flow anymore, especially in this Yuletide Season.

Perhaps, I almost have let go of my childhood because of my exposure to my career as a call centre agent. At ayun nga, halos wala na akong balita sa mga pangyayari dahil sabak ako sa trabaho ng gabi at tulog-diwa naman ako sa araw. It's kinda hard, isn't it?

Anyway, I have to get back to work. Baka masita pa ako nito, hahaha. To all of the readers of my blog, THANK YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS! Keep on following blog! At sa pangkat AZKALS, GOOD LUCK! Kaya niyo yan! Kayo pa, eh mga Pilipino kayo! Ü

Blogging while Working... hahahaha! :D

Good evening.

It's the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Sad to say, I wasn't able to attend the Holy Mass because I woke up at 5:30 PM and the mass started at 6:00 PM. But anyway, maraming salamat sa Tambalang Balahura at Balasubas na sina Nicolehyala at Chris Tsuper dahil naalala ko ang naturang Kapistahan. Siksik liglig na umaapaw... TING!

Ganun talaga kapag subsob na sa trabaho. You almost don't know kung ano na ang nangyayari sa kapaligiran. Dahil buong magdamag akong nakababad sa trabaho at buong maghapon naman akong natutulog. Nevertheless, I enjoy my work. Yun nga lang, halos wala na rin akong panahon sa sarili ko. I can't even enjoy my night-offs on weekends because I only stay at home with my brand new Nokia C3-00 mobile phone. Honestly, I want to break free, but I can't do it because I'm now in the stage of true adulthood. I'm not anymore a kid nor a teenager to think of childish matters. But my heart and mind is still attached with those kind of matters. I really can't let go of my childhood life.

And as I'm doing this blog entry here in my office, dito ko na rin marahil naibubuhos yung kaunting bigat sa kalooban ko. Speaking of my relationship with my mom, maayos naman kami kahit na may alitan sa amin paminsan-minsan. Pero ganun talaga kapag mahal niyo ang isa't isa. About my friends, ayun at hindi ko na rin sila nakakasama nang madalas lalo na't may trabaho na ang iba sa amin habang mga tambay pa ang marami sa kanila (Peace my friends! I love you!). Pero sana naman ay makahanap na rin sila ng maayos na trabaho.

But you know what? Ngayong sandali ko lang napagtanto, that this is a big blessing for me. You know why? From an ordinary account in our call centre company, I was promoted to work for an account in Spanish language. And Spanish means more money! And what is amazing about this? I was the only one in our Spanish account who did not take any course in Spanish! Isn't it that great? But still, I need to take a Spanish course to sharpen my overall proficiency, puesto que el idioma español es uno de mis idiomas favoritos. Pero quiero aprender el japonés y el coreano más que español e italiano, jajaja.

Vale, voy a trabajar otra vez. Tengo que recibir más llamadas para recibir más dinero, jajaja. PAALAM!

Multi-lingual Blog... THIS ONE!

Alright, guys, here are the flags that reflect my heritages.



These flags represent the Philippines, Japan, China, Korea, Spain, France, Germany, and Italy. I'm actually from the Philippines and I'm basically fluent in Tagalog, Kapampangan, English, and Spanish but I'm looking forward in learning more Japanese (I can read Katakana and Hiragana), Korean (I can read Han'geul), Mandarin, Fukienese, Cantonese, Catalan, French, German, Italian, and other languages. I don't know why I am so fascinated in learning different languages. Perhaps there could be a reason. And whatever it could be, I'm so excited to know about it!

But sad to say, I don't have anymore enough time to immerse myself on those languages since I work in the evening for 9 hours and I sleep for the whole day. Well, who knows? I might become fluent on the languages that I would like to study!

부익부, 빈익빈의 남조선사회

Just got this video from Korean Central Television from Democratic People's Republic of Korea. It's about their viewpoint about the poverty in their neighbouring nation of what they call as Namjoseon (남조선) also known as South Korea.



Just to express my own viewpoint, every country have forms of poverty in certain people and regions. But above else, NO COMMENT.

Il Mio Compleanno

Happy 23rd Birthday to me!

There's nothing I could ask for! To all who made their greetings for me, either verbally or through my Facebook and Friendster accounts, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I'm so grateful that I have met persons like you guys!

First of all, I would like to thank God for the blessings that He has given me. This is, that is to say, the best pre-Yuletide Season for me. Our Omnipotent One never brought me down, despite the fact that I'm a very sinful person. But guess what? This only proves that God is so loving to all of us. Of course, we can never avoid trials and shortcomings that come into our lives. And so, all of us should never forget to give praise and thanks to our ever-loving Creator.

And now I would like to thank my mommy who has been taking care of me ever since. I know that I'm not a good child that she expects from me, but I know that I truly love her. And now, it's now my turn to share some of my blessings to her.

And to my friends and relatives who understand and accept me as who and what I am, ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU! If it's not because of them, I would have not been that strong and determined. They also bring me joy and inspiration to move on with my mundane journey.

At sa mga taong naging espesyal sa akin, MARAMING SALAMAT SA INYO. Naging mas matatag ako lalo dahil sa inyo. MANY MANY THANKS!

Ok folks, that's it for now! CIAO!

Funny English of Lee Da Hae (이다해 - 李多海)

Here's a video about Lee Da Hae who demonstrated different accents of English in UK, USA, and the Philippines. But here's something funny yet offensive to other Filipinos especially to the Filipino teachers who teach English to Koreans.



Guess I was once an English teacher to Koreans. It wasn't actually offensive for me since it was only for fun. And I do believe that Lee Da Hae didn't mean to offend Filipinos. At least, she did apologise to the Filipinos. At least, she has the talent to mimic other accents.

But wait a minute... it wasn't even Filipino accent! I bet, she used the accent of other Asians who speak English in that way. But I found her very funny!

And here's her statement about the issue on her Twitter account:



First I'd like to give you my sincere apologies for what seems to be a misunderstanding.

It has come to my attention that many of you from the Philippines have posted comments protesting that i was being derisive by mimicking Filipinos when they speak English.

Therefore, in light of this matter I'd like to take this opportunity to clear the air.
In spite of what many people believe, I myself did NOT mention anything
about the Philippines or Filipino accent whilst on the TV show.

On the other hand I recall bringing up Southeast Asia and not the Philippines and the subtitles were inserted when the show was being edited of which I was not aware of until it was aired.

The TV show where this footage was taken from was designed to amuse its audience and my sole purpose was to entertain the viewers by coming up with lighthearted stories.

Since the producer knows that i speak English he asked me if I could
share any episodes that touch upon the English language.

As we all know every country has a typical accent when its people speak English (including myself) so after giving it some thought, I came up with a few lines where I simply tried to compare different English accents: the somewhat rigid British accent and beginners in Southeast Asia whose English tends to be a little hard-edged. No pun or ridicule was intended.

As an individual who use to take English classes over the phone with a Filipino instructor, I give you my word that even the mere thought of mocking Filipinos would never cross my mind.
I cannot tell you how much Filipino fans mean to me and as much as I love them, I would in no way
hurt or upset them.

I hope I have clarified any misunderstandings and once again I am truly sorry if I inadvertently
hurt anyone's feelings.

-i really love you, my Filipino fans..




Sa mga kababayan kong Pilipino lalo na sa mga kapwa kong tagapagturo ng wikang Ingles sa mga Koreano, huwag nating tignan sa masyadong malalim na kahulugan. Kung titignan niyo naman po ang ginawa niya, para lamang po iyon sa pangkasayahan. At isa pa, sana po ay naging sapat na ang paghingi niya ng paumanhin. Hindi po sa kinakampihan ko po siya, pero wala po sanang away, OK? We Asians should be united as one, because we are gaining high praises from different people around the world. And besides, Christmas is fast approaching! PEACE ON EARTH! PEACE AMONG FILIPINOS AND KOREANS!

MABUHAY ANG PILIPINAS AT KOREA!

En Transicion

Buenos días a todos.

Ahora estoy cansado, pero no tengo sueño. ¿Pero bueno qué? No me importa después de todo. Estoy muy feliz en mi vida hermosa, y lo agredezco la gente quien siempre me hace sentir como soy joven.

As you see, this blog is about to be filled with entries in idioma castellano. It's sad to know that the Spanish language is not anymore the official language of the Philippines, the mere fact that the Philippines is the first oriental nation that had the Spanish language adopted.

Bueno, eso es todo por ahora. Tengo que jugar Plants VS Zombies, y entoces voy a dormir para muchas horas. Mi cuerpo y mi alma están cansado. Mientras estudio el español, afilo también mis habilidades en hablando los idiomas japonés y coreano. Ciao!

Halloween 2010

TRICK OR TREAT!



And because it's halloween, I'm playing Plants VS Zombies... guess it's also the motif our team during the halloween celebration in our company!

It's been more than a month since I started working in my latest company. But this one is really different from my previous jobs. It was really fun, and I really love my newest job. Nevertheless, I lose a lot of time for myself. I don't any more have time to mingle with my friends. And my identity as a netizen has decreased. Wanna know my usual activities? HOUSE and OFFICE. SLEEP and WORK. That's it.

And I must confess, I still can't let go of my childhood life. But like what they say, life goes on and on. I must accept the fact that I'm a fully grown young adult. My childhood stage has passed away, as well as my teenage life. But I must say, I really love my life. And I'm proud of what I am right now.

Well folks, that's it for now. Parang nagugutom na naman ako, eh kakakain ko lang kanina! Ano ba itong metabolismo ko?! Kaya tuloy sobra akong payat ngayon. Hindi kagaya ng iba, kaunti lang ang kinakain pero hindi naman nangangayayat. Nakakainggit naman! Oh paano, paalam na! Have a peaceful dreams... MWAHAHAHAHAHA! :D

Super Junior - Don't Don



이대로 끝이면, 시회가 없다면
모두가 틀렸다고 말하고 있어
코메디 같은 세상에 웃지
못할 사람들 넌더리가 나

돈!돈! 모든게 돈 세상
원 안에 갇힌 너 What is your mind?
(You outta control, What is your mind?)
제발 주위를 돌아봐 절망의 눈및이 보이잖아
(Stop banging my head, my eyes gone red)

점점 멀어지는걸 그대로 충분한 세상
이미 가진걸로 다 기쁜세상
꿈꾸던 사람들이 하나둘씩 떠나버려도 변하지않네

The world is mine 내가 이세계의 법이야
그들이 행복하기만을 기다렸을때
어느 누구보다 먼저 기회를 잡은것일뿐
약자를 위한 배려따윈 절대없어

나의 불꽃을 다 태워서라도 포기할 수 없어
저들의 것이 아닌 우리 아이들의 세상을 위해서라면

그래도 너무 원망하지마 내가 아냐
세상이 널 그렇게 만든거야
내가 원했던건 나는 모두 가져 세상이 나를 외면하여도
눈과 귀를 막고 어지럽게 만들어버릴 적당한 머리와 돈이 조금 필요할뿐

나의 불꽃을 다 태워서라도 지켜주고 싶어
환돈의 시대끈에 살아가야 할 내 아이를 위해서라면

돈!돈! 모든게 돈 세상
원 안에 갇힌 너 What is your mind
(You outta control, what is your mind?)
제발 주위를 돌아봐 절망의 눈및이 보이잖아
(Stop banging my head, my eyes gone red)

Don't Don't 이젠 그만좀 해 위선의 가면도 벗어버려
벗어버려! 니가식의 가면도
모두 기다리고 있어 마지막 바램도 버리지 마
던저버려! 니 그 가식의 가면도

L'Arc-en-Ciel - 瞳の住人



数えきれない…でも少しの歳月は流れ
いったい君の事をどれくらい分かってるのかな?
指先で地図辿るようには上手く行かないね
気づいているよ不安そうな顔 隠してるくらい

急ぎ足の明日へと抵抗するように
駆け回っていても不思議なくらい…この胸は君を描くよ

見上げれば輝きは色褪せず溢れていた
どんな時も照らしてる あの太陽のようになれたなら

もう少しだけ君の匂いに…抱かれていたいな
外の空気に首輪を引かれ僕は背を向けた

白く滲んだ 溜め息に知らされる季節(とき)を
繰り返しながらふと思うのさ…なぜ僕はここに居るんだろう?

そばにいてずっと君の笑顔を 見つめていたい
移り行く瞬間をその瞳に住んでいたい
どこまでも穏やかな色彩に彩られた
一つの風景画の中 寄り添うように時を止めて欲しい永遠に

そばにいてずっと君の笑顔を 見つめていたい
移り行く瞬間を その瞳に住んでいたい
いつの日か鮮やかな季節へと連れ出せたら
雪のように空に咲く花のもとへ…花のもとへ

늑대들은 같아 똑같지 시작은 창대하지만
시간이 흘러 가는대로 너를 버려두게 돼

떠나버려 그저 그런 녀석 (떠나버려 버려)
너를 좀 더 아끼는 법을 배워 (이제배워 배워)
사랑보다 우선인건 너지 (i will get it get it)
이기적인 연민 속에 머문다면 그게 죄인걸

사랑이란 감옥 속에 너를 그냥 버려두지 마

언제까지나 네 곁에서

떠나버려 거지같은 녀석

너를 좀 더 아끼는 법을 배워

Oh my super girl
오직 나의 baby girl
너를 몰라보는 그런 남자들이 바보야

Oh my super girl

Buhay Call Center

Ang araw ay nagiging gabi...
Ang gabi ay nagiging araw...

Ganun talaga kapag nasa call centre ka. Buti na lang at madali lang sa akin ang makapag-adjust sa usual time scheme ng working hours sa call centre.

Mataas kung mataas ang sweldo, lalo na kapag regular ka na at nakakatanggap ka pa ng maraming bonus batay sa performance, productivity, attendance, at iba pa. Kaya nga marami ang mga na-eengganyong mag-trabaho sa ganung uri ng industriya.

Ang malungkot nga lang... halos wala nang oras ang karamihan sa amin para sa sarili. Good thing, and I'm still single, kaya wala ako gaanong iniintindi pa. Ang kaso naman sa mga may pamilya na, kailangan pa nilang asikasuhin ang mga asawa't anak nila. Kung sa bagay, hindi pa naman sumasagi sa isip ko na magkaroon na rin ng sariling pamilya. It's just that I still enjoy my life bilang bata at single.

At ang mas nakakalungkot pa... hindi ko na rin nagagawa yung mga nakagisnan kong gawin noong hindi pa ako nagta-trabaho. Pero ganun talaga ang buhay -- it just goes on and on. And I have to face the fact that I'm the stage of real adulthood. Pero aaminin ko, mahirap pa rin sa akin na bitawan ang buhay-kabataan.

Ang maganda nga lang, may kakayahan din akong sustentuhan ang sarili ko at kaya ko pang makatulong sa iba lalo na sa mga kamag-anak ko. Masarap din kasing tumutulong din ako sa iba. Pero siyempre, dapat din akong magtira sa sarili ko.

Hanggang dito na muna. At sana ay lumisan na rin si Bagyong Juan sa bansang ito. Maraming kabuhayan ang nasalanta at may mga naibuwis na ring buhay sa mga sandaling ito. Ngunit hindi pa rin nawawala ang pananampalataya ko sa Dakilang Tagapaglikha. Nawa'y gabayan tayong lahat. At sana, maging matiwasay din ang trabaho ko sa call center.

Le Quattro Stagioni



ANTONIO VIVALDI, il "Prete Rosso"

1678 - Serenixima Respublica de Venexia (Serenissima Repubblica)

1741 - Republik Österreich (Repubblica d'Austria)



01 PRIMAVERA - ALLEGRO
Giunt' è la Primavera e festosetti
La Salutan gl' Augei con lieto canto,
E i fonti allo Spirar de' Zeffiretti
Con dolce mormorio Scorrono intanto:
Vengon' coprendo l'aer di nero amanto
E Lampi, e tuoni ad annuntiarla eletti
Indi tacendo questi, gl' Augelletti;
Tornan' di nuovo al lor canoro incanto:




02 PRIMAVERA - LARGO
E quindi sul fiorito ameno prato
Al caro mormorio di fronde e piante
Dorme 'l Caprar col fido can' à lato.



03 PRIMAVERA - ALLEGRO PASTORALE
Di pastoral Zampogna al suon festante
Danzan Ninfe e Pastor nel tetto amato
Di primavera all' apparir brillante.



04 ESTATE - ALLEGRO NON MOLTO
Sotto dura Staggion dal Sole accesa
Langue l'uom, langue 'l gregge, ed arde il Pino;
Scioglie il Cucco la Voce, e tosto intesa
Canta la Tortorella e 'l gardelino.
Zèfiro dolce Spira, ma contesa
Muove Bòrea improviso al Suo vicino;
E piange il Pastorel, perché sospesa
Teme fiera borasca, e 'l suo destino;



05 ESTATE - ADAGIO E PIANO
Toglie alle membra lasse il Suo riposo
Il timore de' Lampi, e tuoni fieri
E de mosche e moscon lo Stuol furioso.



06 ESTATE - PRESTO
Ah, che purtroppo i suoi timor Son veri!
Tuona e fulmina il Ciel e grandinoso:
Tronca il capo alle Spiche ed a' grani alteri.



07 AUTUNNO - ALLEGRO
Celebra il Vilanel con balli e Canti
Del felice raccolto il bel piacere
E del liquor de Bacco accesi tanti
Finiscono col Sonno il lor godere



08 AUTUNNO - ADAGIO MOLTO
Fa' ch' ogn' uno tralasci e balli e canti
L'aria che temperata dà piacere,
E la Stagion ch' invita tanti e tanti
D' un dolcissimo Sonno al bel godere.



09 AUTUNNO - ALLEGRO
I cacciator alla nov'alba a caccia
Con corni, Schioppi, e canni escono fuore
Fugge la belva, e Seguono la traccia;
Già Sbigottita, e lassa al gran rumore
De' Schioppi e cani, ferita minaccia
Languida di fuggir, ma oppressa muore.



10 INVERNO - ALLEGRO NON MOLTO
Agghiacciato tremar tra nevi algenti
Al Severo Spirar d' orrido Vento,
Correr battendo i piedi ogni momento;
E pel Soverchio gel batter i denti;



11 INVERNO - LARGO ADAGIO
Passar al foco i dì quieti e contenti
Mentre la pioggia fuor bagna ben cento



12 INVERNO - ALLEGRO
Caminar Sopra il ghiaccio, e a passo lento
Per timor di cader girsene intenti;
Gir forte Sdruzziolar, cader a terra
Di nuovo ir Sopra 'l giaccio e correr forte
Sin ch' il giaccio si rompe, e si disserra;
Sentir uscir dalle ferrate porte
Scirocco, Borea, e tutti i Venti in guerra
Quest' é 'l verno, ma tal, che gioia apporte.



I dedicate this blog entry to HENRY LAU and SUE SON who inspired me to take violin lessons (though it may be almost impossible for me to find time in taking violin lessons)

Mapaglarong Tadhana

Good evening folks!

It's already Autumn in northern hemisphere whereas it's spring in southern hemisphere. Ang bilis talaga tumakbo ng panahon. Naaalala ko pa noong bago pa lang ako sa pagba-blog. At heto, I have a lot of entries here. Halo-halong kwento, awit, at kung ano-ano pa. Aside from my diary, naging takbuhan ko itong blog ko sa ano mang kalagayan ng damdamin ko.

It's so funny how destiny moves. Eh paano, mayroon kang inaasahang isang bagay, pero hindi naman dumarating sa iyo. Ngunit isang araw na lang, habang nakalutang sa kawalan ang isip mo, basta na lang mangyayari yung bagay na nais mong mangyari noon. Minsan, may nagdidikta sa iyo mula sa kawalan na dapat mo nang gawin ang isang bagay habang mayroon pang pagkakataon. So hence, destiny is a matter of chance and choice.

I'll give you my first example. May nagbukas noon na supermarket sa Monumento, at saka naalala ko na magsho-show doon ang friend kong si Roxanne Guinoo. Bale matagal ko na rin siyang hindi nakikita noong time na yun. At nagkita rin kami doon. By the way, she just gave birth like few days ago, at nagkita naman kami bago sila nag-discharge from the hospital. Congratulations to her!

Another example is about my admittance to Coro de San Lorenzo. Noong member pa ako ng Living Hope Chorale, aware na rin ako sa existence ng Coro de San Lorenzo. But I saw something mystical about their choir group. Magaan talaga ang loob ko everytime I see them. Kaya noong umalis ako sa Living Hope Chorale at nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataong makausap sila ay ginawa ko na. At ngayon, mas magaan na ang loob ko sa paglilingkod sa Kaitaasan.

And my last example is about sa pagmi-meet namin ng super idol kong si Vincent Bueno. Ever since na ipinalabas si Vincent Bueno sa TV tungkol sa pagkapanalo niya sa Musical! Die Show ay agad na akong nagkaroon ng paghanga sa kanya. Siya rin ang naging inspirasyon ko sa tuwing kakanta ako sa simbahan. And he's so very talented. That's why I confess, naiinggit din ako sa kanya. But of course, hindi naman ibig sabihin nun ay may sama ako ng loob sa kanya. Kaya siguro nagtagpo kami ni kuya Vincent nang hindi inaasahan. Wala akong kamalay-malay nun na naroon pala siya. At noong mga oras na nag-uusap na kami ni Kuya Vincent ay apaw-apaw ang saya ko. Imagine, I was beside with an Austrian star talking and eating with him during that time!

Iba talaga maglaro ang tadhana diba? But beware: hindi rin minsan maganda magbiro ang tadhana. For destiny could either bring us happiness or sorrow. But for the meantime, puro naman kasayahan ang dulot sa akin. For I know that God is the Supreme Controller of Destiny. Kaya malaki ang utang na loob ko kay God dahil alam kong mahal na mahal niya ako despite of my countless sins. Kaya handa rin ako kung may malas mang darating sa akin, na alam kong darating at darating rin. Pero sa kabila pa rin nun, I cherish every happy moment na tinatamasa ko. THANK YOU GOD!

자 힘이 들 땐 모두 산을 타자
30분 뒤에 정상에서 만나
내가 제인이라면 넌 타잔 가자
저 넓은 우주를 향해 탈출하자

탐험하자 깊은 바다에서의 뜨거운 마찰
잠깐 이제 우린 모두 하나
One more time your body every body
(rock rock)

오늘 하루는 잠시 미쳐봐
몸이 뜨거워 질 때까지 뛰어봐
우리 만나면 A-YO

좀 더 크게 노래를 부르자

너와 나의 소리가 하나가 되고
그 소리가 합쳐 세상을 흔들고
느껴진다면 모두 같이 나와 춤추자
Just you and me one one

I wanna rock your body
I wanna make some noise
걱정 따윈 날려 버려
I wanna make some noise
무거운 짐 따윈 벗어 던져

박수쳐
박수쳐

모두 손을 올리고
저 하늘에게 말을 걸어봐

박수쳐

Ke$ha - TiK ToK



Wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy
(Hey, what up girl?)
Grab my glasses, I'm out the door, I'm gonna hit this city
(Lets go)
Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack
'Cause when I leave for the night, I ain't coming back

I'm talking pedicure on our toes, toes
Trying on all our clothes, clothes
Boys blowing up our phones, phones
Drop-topping, playing our favorite CDs
Pulling up to the parties
Trying to get a little bit tipsy

Don't stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, I'mma fight
'Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock on the clock
But the party don't stop, no

Don't stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, I'mma fight
'Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock, on the clock
But the party don't stop, no

Ain't got a care in world, but got plenty of beer
Ain't got no money in my pocket, but I'm already here
And now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger

I'm talking about everybody getting crunk, crunk
Boys tryin' to touch my junk, junk
Gonna smack him if he getting too drunk, drunk

Now, now, we go until they kick us out, out
Or the police shut us down, down
Police shut us down, down
Po-po shut us

Don't stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, I'mma fight
'Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock on the clock
But the party don't stop, no

Don't stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, I'mma fight
'Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock on the clock
But the party don't stop, no

DJ, you build me up
You break me down
My heart, it pounds
Yeah, you got me

With my hands up
You got me now
You got that sound
Yeah, you got me

DJ, you build me up
You break me down
My heart, it pounds
Yeah, you got me

With my hands up
Put your hands up
Put your hands up

Now, the party don't start 'til I walk in

Don't stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, I'mma fight
'Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock on the clock
But the party don't stop, no

Don't stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, I'mma fight
'Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock on the clock
But the party don't stop, no

Was für ein Tag!

Guten Abend!

ANG SAYA SAYA TALAGA NG ARAW KO!

This time, I don't know if it was just a co-incidence or it was meant to happen.

After I went to Eastwood, I was planning to go to Market! Market! in Taguig City via C-5 Road. But the jeepney driver put me off to Ortigas Avenue, and I didn't what to do. And then I decided to go to Robinson's Galleria instead. At the Galleria, I was physically weak and was disoriented. Para bang ang dami-daming pumapasok sa isip ko. Tila baga'y paranoid na ako.

Nang nakita ko ang Dairy Queen, naalala ko yung mga dati kong co-teachers. I really missed them a lot. Kaya umorder na lang ako ng una kong inorder -- Strawberry Oreo. I really can't resist yung kasarapan. Hanggang sa nakita ko yung taong napaka-pamilyar sa akin -- si VINCENT BUENO!

May kasama siya nun, and I tried to follow him. Hanggang sa napa-order na rin ako sa isang food stall na ino-orderan nila. I did not hesitate na magpakilala sa kanya... auf DEUTSCH!

At ayun, bonding moments na namin while eating. Hanggang sa hinatid na ako ni Kuya Vincent sa Greenbelt. I must say, DOWN-TO-EARTH si Kuya Vincent. And safe to say, we both admire each other's talents, bagay na ikina-flatter ko naman.

I don't know yet kung ano ang purpose ng pagkikita namin ni Kuya Vincent. But as the saying goes, "Everything happens for a REASON." at alam ko ngang may dahilan sa kabila nun. Kung ano man yun, bahala na si Lord! GUTE NACHT!

Juris Fernandez - 'Di Lang Ikaw


Pansin mo ba ang pagbabago?
Di matitigan ang iyong mga mata
Tila di na nananabik
Sa iyong yakap at halik
Sana'y malaman mo
Hindi sinasadya
Kung ang nais ko ay maging malaya

Di lang ikaw
Di lang ikaw ang nahihirapan
Damdamin ko rin ay naguguluhan
Di lang ikaw
Di lang ikaw ang nababahala
Bulong ng isip wag kang pakawalan
Ngunit puso ko ay kailangan kang iwan

Pansin mo ba ang nararamdaman
Di na tayo magkaintindihan
Tila hindi na maibabalik
Tamis ng yakap at halik
Maaring tama ka lumalamig ang pagsinta
Sana'y malaman mong di ko sinasadya

Di lang ikaw
Di lang ikaw ang nahihirapan
Damdamin ko rin ay naguguluhan
Di lang ikaw
Di lang ikaw ang nababahala
Bulong ng isip wag kang pakawalan
Ngunit puso ko ay kailangan kang iwan

Di hahayaang habang buhay kang saktan
Di sasayangin ang iyong panahon
Ikaw ay magiging masaya
Sa yakap at sa piling ng iba


Di lang ikaw
Di lang ikaw ang nahihirapan
Damdamin ko rin ay naguguluhan
Di lang ikaw
Di lang ikaw ang nababahala
Bulong ng isip wag kang pakawalan
Ngunit puso ko ay kailangan kang iwan

Coro de San Lorenzo at QC Wildlife


Good evening!

ANG SAYA NG BONDING KANINA NG CORO DE SAN LORENZO SA QC WILDLIFE!



Well folks, I must say that this is one of the most happiest moments of my existence. WHAT A MAJOR MAJOR FUN!




It all started when we planned for our Team Building for our choir group. And through heaven's goodness, it was not a rainy day until we got ourselves home. Buti na lang at umulan noong nakauwi na kami. Habang buhay kong dadalhin ang alaala ko sa Coro de San Lorenzo. I thank God dahil napunta ako sa grupong may layunin na mapalapit sa Diyos.



May Bible study na naganap kaakibat ng mga laro. Special thanks sa aming mga facilitators because they made our activity possible. At salamat sa mga ka-choir ko dahil nakasama ko sila sa aming ultimate bonding experience. At sa mga hindi nakasama kanina, sana makasama naman kayo next time.




I must say, heto na ang pinakamasayang grupo na nakasama ko. Sana naman, maging ganun din sa ibang grupo na sinalihan ko. Kung puwede nga lang, magkasama-sama ang mga organisation kong Coro de San Lorenzo, Knights of the Altar, Special Ministry of the Word, at lahat ng kasali sa Parish Youth Ministry ng San Exequiel Moreno Parish, San Bartolome Parish, at Holy Family Parish!



MAJOR MAJOR THANKS TO ALL! VIVA EL CORO DE SAN LORENZO!

BoA - Key of Heart (Korean)



La la la la la la
La la la la la la

그 누구라도 잘못
끼워버린 단추 하나처럼
엇갈려 버리는 날 있겠죠
난 믿고 있었지만
솔직한 마음을 외면한 듯
멀어져가는 뒷 모습 보며
아무 말 할 수 없었죠

지금 이대로 전하고 싶어
잠겨있던 마음의 열쇠가
이 가슴속에 빛나고 있어요
더욱 강하게 지키고 싶어
셀 수도 없이 많은 추억을
이어주고 있는 이름은
Just the key of heart

I believe in love, two hearts
I believe in love, two hearts

미안하다고 이야기한다면
알 수 있어도
혼자선 말 할 수 없겠죠
그대도 지금 나와 같은
생각 하고 있는거죠
인연이 우릴 부르니까
그대를 향해 가는걸

지금 이대로 전하고 싶어
잠겨있던 마음의 열쇠가
이 가슴속에 빛나고 있어요
눈을 감은 채 기도할게요
두근거리는 이 마음 모두
그대에게 전해지도록
Just the key of heart

우연히 그댈 만난 기적도
이 세상에 태어난 의미도
저 마다 서로 가슴에 새긴 채
망설임 없이 손을 잡았던
그대와 나만의 작은 얘기를
끝나지 않게 하고 싶어
Just the key of heart

La la la la la la

Linguistic Knowledge

Good morning!

I just arrived from my chorale service. That's it. And I'll be in another church activity by noon time.

To all the readers of this blog, you have probably noticed that this blog of mine is infused with different languages, particularly Austronesian, Indo-European, Altaic, and even Sino-Tibetan. As we all know, these language families have dominated our mundane society, most especially the Indo-European languages. It only proved how Europeans had explored the world. For instance, British settlers took with them the English languages in Canada, Australia, South Africa, India, and others. Spaniards took much control of Latin America, as well as my country, the Philippines. Portuguese conquered and ruled Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Macau, East Timor, and so on. French language dominated in many African nations.

Anyway, let me share to you my knowledge in some languages. And I'm going to cite some notes about those languages.


TAGALOG:
Tagalog is the basis of the Filipino language. It is also the lingua franca of the Filipinos abroad. By the way, Tagalog is my native language. And I speak it in Manila accent, since Metro Manila is my hometown. Moreover, I tried mimicking Bulacan and Batangas accent, but I never perfected those accents, since I never grew up with the people who speak in those dialects. Ayos ba tayo diyan? Wagas!

KAPAMPANGAN/PAMPANGO:
Kapampangan is also my native language, but I speak it in unusual accent. The reason is that I don't have much contacts with Kapampangan speakers. I only learned Kapampangan through my mom. Of all her siblings, she is the only one who speaks more Kapampangan. I must say, Kapampangan language is in slow decline because of the dominance of the Filipino language throughout the Philippines. When I was in Angeles City last two days ago, I heard some children spoke in Tagalog rather than in Kapampangan. And even the language of instruction is Tagalog. Sana pin, mabiye ya pa ing Amanung Siswan.

ENGLISH:
It was the Americans who brought English in our country, and not the Britons. And American English is the basis of the English language of the Philippines. And the surprising fact? Many Filipinos cannot fully understand English when spoken in any variety of British or Australian accents. And because English is more used than Spanish, English eventually replaced Spanish as one of the official languages of the Philippines alongside Filipino language. And do you know the reason why many Koreans migrate here? It's so simple. They come here to study English.

SPANISH (ESPAÑOL):
Have you noticed why most of the Filipinos' last names are Spanish? It's so simple. Spain ruled our country for over 3 centuries. And the connection? Spaniards inter-married with native Filipinos. And others had their Christian name in Spanish when they got baptised. But Spanish is not anymore one of the official languages of the Philippines. The Instituto Cervantes is perhaps the only educational institution in the Philippines that uses Spanish in teaching. But at least, I have a fair grasp in that language. And as I immersed myself in Spanish, I then knew that Spanish has several varieties, just like English. But the "Spaniard's Spanish" is my basis for my spoken Spanish. Vale, el idioma castellano es lindo como el viento suave.

FRENCH (FRANÇAIS):
Nothing can ever be as romantic as French! Whenever I hear it in Parisian accent, it feels like I'm in the romantic city of Paris. But actually, I would like to visit Lourdes, situated in the Pyrenees. And Paris is only the second. So impossible as it may seem, but I would like to gain more knowledge in that romantic language. For what? I'm just fascinated in that language. And I thought, the /r/ sound in French was challenging. But I like making the /r/ sound! Très bien, mon cherie!

GERMAN (DEUTSCH):
It was not anymore challenging for me when I knew that German is very related to English. That is, they are both Germanic languages. I'll give you an example. Der Wasser ist Kalt. If you think the English equivalent is "The water is cold.", then you're correct! And here's another one. Wer ist mein Vater? Wo ist mein Bruder? What do you think? If you think "Where is my father? Who is my brother?" is the answer, then you are WRONG! HAHAHAHAHA! Actually, "wo" is "where", whereas "wer" is "who". And before, I got a mistake about that, hihihi! Ich will eine Reise nach Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, und Belgien zu machen. Und will ich die Deutschesprache zu lernen!

JAPANESE (日本語):
J-Pop had made success in the Philippines. The song "Sweet Soul Revue" by Pizzicato Five was a big smash in many Philippine charts. And until now, it's still one of my favourite songs. And for me, Japanese is not a difficult language. The problem is, I don't have much exposure in Japanese media. But I do believe, Japanese is not complicated to be learned. And guess what? I love Super Sentai more than Power Rangers! And through Tokusatsu series, I get a chance to acquire some knowledge in Japanese. お楽しみに!

KOREAN (한국어/조선말):
The so-called "Korean Wave" has made its way in the Philippine Islands. And the Philippine audience gave high praises for many Korean artists, such as BoA, Se7en, Rain, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, 2NE1, Big Bang, Wonder Girls, and many other more. Hopefully, OPM will also be known in Korea. Anyway, Charice Pempengco, Christian Bautista, and Lea Salonga are some of the Philippine artists who made successful crossovers in different countries. Well, what some people don't know is that Korean language exists in different dialects. For instance, the Seoul dialect is spoken in Seoul Metropolitan Area and Gyeonggi-do, and is the basis for the Korean language in South Korea. The Pyeong'an dialect is spoken in Pyongyang, Pyeong'anbuk-do, Pyeong'annam-do, and Chagang-do, and is the basis of the Korean language in North Korea. Other dialects include Chungcheong, Jeolla, Gangwon, Gyeongsang, Jeju, Hwanghae, and Hamgyeong. 힘내라!

ITALIAN (ITALIANO)
It's not suprising why the Italian language is the closest resemblance of the Latin language. Just like all Romance languages, Italian directly descended from Latin. And Latin was once spoken in the Italian peninsula. Hence, Italian had retained most of the characteristics of Latin. Just like French, Italian language sounds very romantic! And I noticed before, I was able to understand some Italian (that is, the written Italian and not the spoken one) because of its numerous cognates with Spanish. And I started to study Spanish when I was in late elementary. But I already knew before that Spanish and Italian are very related to each other, but I didn't had yet an idea that they are both direct descendants of Latin. How about some plate of spaghetti or lasagna? Perfettamente!

PORTUGUESE (PORTUGUÊS)
Portuguese is one of the world's major languages. And Brazil is the largest Portuguese-speaking country. However, different Portuguese dialects arose as its speakers from different countries became diverse from each other. Brazilian Portuguese is now a bit different from Iberian Portuguese (from Iberian peninsula where Portugal is). Speaking of the Portuguese language itself, its written form resembles Spanish, but its spoken form may sound more like French. Anyway, that's the spirit of the Portuguese language. Obrigado!

Other languages:
LUXEMBOURGISH (LËTZEBUERGESCH)
CATALAN (CATALÀ)
INDONESIAN (BAHASA INDONESIA)
MALAYSIAN (BAHASA MELAYU)
CEBUANO (SUGBUANON)
HILIGAYNON
ILOCANO
MANDARIN (普通话/普通話)
FUKIENESE (福建話)
CANTONESE (廣東話)

Provincial Invasion!

Mayap a bengi kekongan!

Wow, agyang mipagal ku king biyahe, masaya nakuman aldo. Obakit naman? Marakal la reng melyari kanaku king aldong iti.

Nanding ganing aldo, ginising kung alus 5:00 AM na. E ke kasi dindam ing alarm ning cellphone ku. Ngaku, me-late na ku king luub ku! Peru imbis a linub ku nandin, minta na ku mu king marayung lugal – CONCEPCION, TARLAC. Nanung gewa ku karin? O ini ing kwentu.

Ati ku king bus inyang linub king isip ku a munta na ku mu king Pampanga, bangkanita, ma-explore ke karin ing lugal. Inyang miras ku king Mabalacat, sinake kung jeep pamuntang Clark. Inyang miras ku king Clark, migpaynawa ku pa ketang tindahan. And then mengan ku pa. Tapos seli kung Choco Twirl king Jollibee. Medyu mapali na, kasi ala ne ing bagyu. At saka minta ku king computer shop ning Koreanu (pero e ke kakilala ing Koreanu).

Migbuklat kung Facebook para lawen ku la reng kanakung notifications ampong messages. So far, ala nakumang importanting mensayi. Pero anyang ikit ke maka-online ing ka-luguran kung taga Tarlac... keni ya mengumpisa ing kwentu ku.

Mig-greet ku kaya anyang maka-online ya i “mother”. Sinabi ku kaya, ati ku king Clark kasi e ku linub nandin. Tapos, mig-joke kung munta ku karela. Ngana, malyari naman. Anya minta nakuman. Sinabi ku kang “R” a munta ku kari mother, since malapit noman king Angelese. Afterwards, mig-out na ku king shop. And then sinake kung jeep king MacArthur pamuntang Concepcion, ing lugal na ning apu kung babayi. Nganang ima ku, marakal la kano karin reng Pangilinan, kasi menibat ya karin ing apu ku. About an hour ya pala ing biyahe mula Angeles anggang Concepcion. Kaluwat na kasi ning jeep ay asaken ku. In fairness, super barrio ya setting. What if tumuknang ku king baryu, ing tipung marayu king kabiasnan?

Bueno, miras nakuman kari “mother”. Ing masabi ku kaya: maganaka ya talaga! Buti na mu, iki na ku anyang tinipa ku king jeep. Sa bagay, friends naman kami king Facebook at pirmi ne lalawen ing profile ku. It was a warm welcome anyang ikit na ku. Medyo mig-storyahan kami karela. Tapos migkayatin kung oras a mag-Facebook king PC na. Anyang maka-online ku, mekipag-chat ku ka-luguran mi, i “B”. Ngaku kaya, ati ku kari “mother”. At first, e ya meniwala kanaku. And then alus whole day ku kari mother. More on everyday life, pamag-obra, at siyempri... LOVE LIFE! Aru, ikit na la reng kanakung “SPECIAL SOMEONE”! Mate ku pu, makarine!

Anyways, kabang maka-online ku. Ikit ke itang metung kareng kanakung special someone a maka-online. Iya ing first true love ku a pirmi ku mamention kening blog. For more than 5 years, kaluguran ku ne. And for almost 3 years, pirmi nakuman kikiyak... dahil lang sa kanya. Ah, ustu na yan! Marakal a beses ku migparinig kaya nandin. Peru lupang alang epektu! Ikanga, manhid kung manhid. Peru megulat ku inyang ni-like ne itang fan page a “I ACTED LIKE IT DIDN'T BOTHER ME. BUT ACTUALLY, I THINK OF IT ALL THE TIME.”. The question is... ot ni-like ne ita? Nanung buri nang sabyan?

Anyway, alus 5:00 PM na anyang meko na ku kari “mother”. Hahaha, marakal ku pasalubung ibat kaya! Sinabi na kanaku, munta la kano karela ri “B”, “R”, ampo retang aliwa patse ating oras. Mig-suggest ku, mas masanting pin patse semestral break na. And then we bid ourselves goodbye. And voila!




O ini ing ebidensyang minta ku kari “mother”. O diba, bonggang bongga! Sana pin, makapunta ako uli sa kanila. Dakal a salamat, MOTHER! I MISS YOU!
