Happy Thanks Giving!!!

Today is a thanks giving day in the US. Actually it falls on the the 28th of November but I am making this in late because of the time here in the Philippines is advance.
My friend in the US gave me a background why they celebrated "Thanks Giving Day". Actually, we don't have "thanks giving day", I mean making it a holiday. So here's why they celebrated thanks giving.

According to her,Thanksgiving is about a big feast with family or friends. It's recognition of the first Pilgrims who feasted with the Indians at Plymouth Rock. The Pilgrims were the forefathers who left England for freedom of religion and taxes as she recall and the built colonies in America. The Indians and Pilgrims became friends and the first feast of food together was Thanksgiving. It's not really detailed, but that it the list of the history.) 

So, here we go. It's time to list all the thing to be thankful for:
1. I thank God for my family.
2. I thank God for the good health.
3. I am thankful for the blessings in (general)
4. I am thankful that I have friends- in the US and here in the Philippines.
5. I am thankful that I know God and I can trust and rely on Him
6. I am thankful that I have new wedge sandal and doll shoes.
7. I am thankful that God intrusted me a ministry in the church
8. I am thankful that I got friends, brothers and sisters in the Lord
9. I am thankful for my job
10. I am thankful to God ffor a wonderful life.

Thanks giving day is not just celebrated every last week of November but it should be celebrated every day. Because there are hundreds and millions of thinks to be thankful for.

The Most Romantic Musical Instrument

What is the most romantic musical instrument?

Women, now a day, are attracted to men who knows how to play musical instruments. Let's be honest, it's a "plus" if a man knows how to play any of these instruments- it's either piano, guitar, drums, violin, sax and etc. Woman easily falls in love if the man knows how to sing or play the instrument. Right? Men usually uses this strategy to serenade his beloved and captivate a woman's heart.But, let me ask you, which of these instrument is the most romantic one?

For me, I choose saxophone. Actually, it's next to violin, but I choose sax because it requires effort to play it. You need to blow extra air, distort a little bit of your face, but still it produces a romantic and sweet sound that could really make a woman fall.  That's why, guys out there start practicing your saxophone or start purachasing your best alto saxaphone at musicians friend.
I saw a movie and the guy played the saxophone to a girl she loves- it's really sweet and the atmosphere became romantic.

No wonder why, many of the romantic events or places like restaurants, dates in a cruise ship, proposal and wedding, the usual instruments played are saxophone and violin because it has the most sexiest tone and sound. And girls, watch out to the guys who knows how to play the saxophone, get ready to be in love.
How about you, what is the most romantic musical instrument for you?
Truly, love is in the air. Keep going everyone.

The Upcoming Walt Diney Animated Movie: Frozen

When it comes to Walt Disney animated movies, you will surely think of the best movies. Truly, Disney never give their audience a flop movie. This time, frozen is a much awaited movie. For me, I am big fan of Disney's animated movies from the movies' Tinker Bell, Tangled, Wreck it Ralph and etc. this upcoming movie is very exciting. I've watched the movie several times and I can't help my self but to feel excited for this movie. You can't blame me, just like other fanatics out there, I am a huge fan of Disney movie.

In the other side, the characters are also interesting and funny. I love all the characters. Unlike the previous Disney characters' soft, charming and feminine, this time they're more adventurous, cheerful and funny. I like it more this way because we can connect with the character's attitude and act.

I also love the theme in the movie. Since I live in Asia and in a tropical country, for me, it's more exciting to watch an animated movie with a winter theme.
I'll be giving you more positive reviews and quite some of my critics after I watched the movie.

Keep going everyone.
Here's the trailer of the movie of Walt Disney Frozen coming this November 2013.

The iTrack Solo Audio Interface for iPad, Mac and PC for Music Lovers

Everybody knows I can't sing.Hahaha
I just love to share this wonderful experience. Last Saturday, I was given an opportunity to sing in front of the crowd. Everybody knows in the world that I am not a good singer or sing high notes. Unfortunately, I didn’t possess a golden voice actually. I have no experience in singing- I don’t even know how to hold a microphone.hahaha. But right at that moment, honestly I was really nervous at that time, I was able to sing songs. One of our youth leader in our youth group asked me to lead the praise and worship. I was mixed emotion for me- I felt nervous, excited, afraid and etc. In some point of my singing, all my fears are gone.

If am given an opportunity, I would love to record my voice. It’s kind of awkward, but I love to hear my voice in an audio recording studio. I want to know how bad or good my voice is.
 Now a day, it is pretty easier to record your voice using a cool audio recording ipad 4. The gadget has the capacity to record your songs with many apps, can connect your microphone and instrument directly,Mac and etc. If you have this, indeed you can be a real recording artist- I mean a "wanna be" artist. Honestly, I am not a music lover, but I wanna try this one.

Those who love to sing and wants to record their self-titled album, well, this is the best Christmas gift gadget you can give to yourself. :)

Keep going everyone. Enjoy your day. God bless.

The Carol of the Drum: The Little Drummer Boy

Christmas season is coming.

When I was browsing songs in the Youtube for our upcoming presentation, I was mesmerized by this song "The Carol of the Drum or they called it "The Little Drummer Boy". Actually I heard this song over and over again in radio or any Christmas presentation, but I haven't got into the lyrics. When I read the lyrics, surely it added to my list of favorite Christmas songs.

The lyrics of the story didn't really match to the nativity story, but the story of the little drummer boy amazes me. The boy is poor but he only got one drum to play and offer it to baby Jesus. The boys heart in giving is admirable. He uses his resources and talent to offer it to Jesus. It is really a tear jerker seeing little kids learning musical instrument not just to impress others, but to offer and honor the Lord.

I love seeing kids play drums. It's really cute. Moms out there purchase a kids drums at musicians friend today for your early Christmas gift to them. Let them learn how to beat the drums and play a sound of music. Just like the little drummer boy who only wish is to let the baby smile by playing the drums.

Is it wonderful to know that we can share a smile to others by just sharing our talents? Giving isn't just about money, but (it's whether you dance, sing or play musical instruments and etc.) it's about sharing what we have to make other people smile. Giving doesn't measured through the thickness  of our pocket, but through the thickness of the heart.

Keep going everyone. God bless.

The Upcoming Church's "Christmas Around the World Presentation"

I was really busy preparing for our upcoming Christmas presentation. I was assigned to manage the backdrop stage design. I am also very excited to participate a dance presentation "Te Amo"- a Spanish dance presentation.

"Christmas Around the World" is our theme for the upcoming presentation. We have to prepare variety of presentation like dance, drama and song presentation based on the different countries like USA, Spain, China, Japan and etc. I am also excited for the song presentation. I've seen a choir presentation using a trumpet and it's really amazing- it feels like I'm hearing angels' singing. I would really like to hear a song presentation that uses the best getzen trumpet. 
It is really amazing to hear choir that uses one of the best musical instruments. The rendition of the songs and a great musical instrument like trumpet will give you goose bumps all over you body.

We started practicing song, drama and dance presentation every weekend. I am hoping that we'll be able to make it and finish all the preparation despite all the business in our work in the weekdays.

I am very excited to for that day to come. I'm wishing for the best keep going everyone.

A Heartbreaking Picture After the Typhoon Yolanda Made it's Landfall in the Philippines

Typhoon Haiyan or locally they called it Yolanda left a horrible scenario and large devastation in the central part of the Philippines. Right at this moment, Filipino living in the affected areas end up with no shelter, no electricity, no food to eat and water. The worse is, some lost their loved ones. It put me to tears seeing my countrymen suffering this kind of calamity.

* this is the picture after the typhoon Haiyan/ Yolanda (I don't own this picture)

Right at this moment, typhoon Haiyan had cause so much damaged in the life of many Filipino people. The death roll had raised to almost 3,000 in the affected areas and the province of Leyte, Samar and other neighboring province were wiped out by the typhoon- left with many dead bodies and debris all over the place.In the whole, this is one of the strongest typhoon ever recorded.

This calamity, we could see the so-called "bayanihan" (helping and collaboration) spirit of the people in the Philippines or even the other countries who donated and extend their help to the victims of the typhoon. I really appreciate all the people who extend their help and find a way to support the victims.

Seeing all the destruction, for me it is impossible to rise up again, but God is gracious to His people. He will make a way and help those people to stand up again. This is a wake up call for all of us- to cry out to God and pray for our country and for the whole world.

Let's pray and continually extend our help for these people.
Keep going everyone. Keep safe. God bless you.

So Why We Sleep Early?

Why sleep early?
I am breaking this bad habit of not sleeping early.
I don't know, but I have this kind of feeling that I am a stressful life for the past three years- and it's not healthy. I have this bad habit of sleeping late for almost three years. Right now, I want to break that chain and start to practice sleeping as early as possible.

So, why I'm trying to sleep early? I got here 5 reasons why I have to sleep early:

1. You will have higher energy
2. You will have a healthy heart
3. Spiritual progress (waking up early in the morning)
4. We can be more productive
5. Good meditation and healthy brain

For almost three years in my life, I usually sleep around 12-2 a.m. and I know it's not good. Right now, it's 11:50 p.m. Good thing it's still in "p.m." So, bye for now, I got to go. I have to beat the time not to sleep at 12 midnight. I hope so...

Keep going everyone. God bless.

The Gang: I'm Loving All These Girls

It's really a great blessing when you found friends, or should I say sisters' in Christ, who are fun to be with and super lovely. They're not just friends to me but I also consider them as blessings.I'm blessed with their lives and I can see that the Lord made them into a wonderful people. I can see their growth and spiritual maturity. I continually pray that the Lord will use everyone of us for His glory.

We have a lot of  memories together and I pray that we will continually make great memories together.
We are like families in the church. Actually, all of us in the church treated as family. There are some who are not here in this photo, but I still remember and valued them.

Truly, God made people to love and care for each other. I am blessed and thankful to God that I have found them.

No Need to Knock, Just Have a Good Lock

Hi everyone. It's a long holiday isn't it? I really had fun time spending the whole week with a lot of activities. It's semester break so we organized a lot of activities for the youth in the church. Don't worry, I'll be posting these activities later on.

The youth leaders are so excited for the upcoming activities for the upcoming month. I am also excited for our Christmas presentation. This would be a great preparation and there will be a time that I'll be going home late (and it's very hassle). We only have simple locks at home. My parents usually lock it from the inside, so we need to knock the door and wait for somebody to open it before we can get in. Yes, it's very hassle for me and to my parents. It would be a lot easier and convenient for brass knobs to open doors- you only have to keep a duplicate of the key and problem solved!

Yes, I know it's not a good habit to go home late at night, but if you have valid reasons to go home late, then using great door knobs would never be a mistake. It keep you and your family safe and easy way to open.

My only advise for teenagers, don't make a habit to go home late. Maybe sometimes, if you have purposeful activities to do, but always remember allow your parents to know what you're doing and let them know that your going home late.

Keep going everyone. God bless.
