Wanna Teach Me Dog to Dooooogggiiee!

In the past few days, I had been so tired and busy (all at the same time) from my 12-day Diabetes Education Training. Am still on my third day and things seem to be harder than I expected. But I love it! I love how those experts from the Association of Diabetes Nurse Educators of the Philippines (ADNEP) are so brilliant, patient, and helpful. I can really feel that they want us to become the greatest diabetes educators that we could be.

Anyway, I came across this video and I just have to share this. Watch to see how adorable Pudsey is! :)

For sure, you’d be blown away!

Short Hair Inspiration

I’ve been wanting to cut my hair short in the past few days but I can’t seem to find the right style that’ll work for me. Well in the first place, I wouldn’t be able to know what hairdo would look good on me since I haven’t tried wearing a short hair since who knows when? I had spent almost four years on my very long curls so I’m a bit anxious on whether to push through on my short-hair endeavor.

But you know what, maybe I’d give this one a try:

Most especially that I have my new set of glasses to pair this with. I got this wonderful photo from www.eye-wear-glasses.com.

Do you think this would look good on me? I appreciate you dropping some of your thoughts.

Easter Sunday Videoke Galore for Joshua’s Delayed Birthday Celebration!

In the recent days, my family and I observed usual Catholic and Filipino traditions as much as we could by eating anything aside from meat. We also allotted such days to reflection and contemplation. We did these for three consecutive days and everyone’s in almost total silent mode. These scenarios made it difficult for Joshua, my younger brother, to celebrate his 14th Birthday; most especially that his special date landed on a Good Friday. This meant completely abstaining from eating his favorite food: spaghetti, grilled pork chops, ice cream, and shanghai. To make up for the supposed b-day celeb last April 7, we all decided to just throw a party on the Easter Sunday.

We had a simple gathering to whom Joshua’s friends, JC’s (my brother born next to me) high school cliques, and my band mates from AMIHAN attended. I was not able to get a lot of photos but I guess the following would encompass the highlights:

Here’s Mike striking a pose. Lol.

This is Jay-Ar. He plays for Amihan in place of our old guitarist, Jayson.

Now here’s our adorable and talented lead guitarist, Karl. One thing I can tell about him is he never separates himself from his guitar. Hehehe!

Before we proceed, here are some of the table set-ups from last night’s celeb. The first one’s taken at our table; while the second one’s a photo of the b-day celebrant’s (Joshua) area.

Meanwhile, we had Francis on board later in the party. He’s a very good friend to our band. Apart from being one of our loyal buddies and listeners, he is also a relative to Mike (Amihan’s drummer). Francis happens to be the husband of the sister of Mike’s wife. In this photo, he candidly gave me a “tweetum” pose.

Last night’s bandwagon was videoke galore. Funny how everyone joined in!

Oh look at Francis as he advances nearer to the videoke box! So eager is this guy! Lol.

One of the avid singers of the night is Jude, our dear friend/bassist.

Then after him, everyone just plunged in! Hahaha! Too bad I was only able to take photos of Mike and Francis. Karl and Jay-ar had their fair share of song renditions in the latter part of the videoke marathon but I was so carried away with all the fun that I forgot to take some other shots. Darn!

Francis singing for the “nth” time… Hahaha!

 And here’s mike imitating a typical rock star pose…

Mike strumming an INVISIBLE guitar. Lol.

Meanwhile, here’s how the rest of Joshua’s party proceeded last night.

Some guitar discourse shared by Karl and Jay-Ar (on the first photo) and other candid snap shots from the others (succeeding pictures).

In general, last night’s party was a bash. Joshua was so delighted. You can really see it on his face. 

Thank you very much for reading!

Belated Happy Birthday Joshua!

And belated Happy Easter to everyone!

ON MY OWN from Les Miserables – My Own Rendition

I’ve always been fascinated with broadway songs and musicales. I especially love Ms. Saigon, Phantom of the Opera, Cats, and Les Miserables. You see, when I was still in high school, I’d join choir and theater groups so I can do the thing I love doing the most – SINGING. I even auditioned for a theater arts course in my senior year. Unfortunately, my parents won’t allow me to pursue such career. So instead, they imposed that I take up nursing. So I did…

But having been unable to pursue formal training in singing and theater acting didn’t stop me from singing and performing. I love rendering music using my God-given ability. So I decided to form a band and continue…

People have known me as the vocalist of a pop-rock band, called AMIHAN. But during my free-time, I take the opportunity to learn and sing classical and broadway music. Here’s one I did just an hour ago:

What do you think about it? I hope you guys like it.

Share with me your thoughts. :)
