I love Gary V and I am sharing this wonderful love song with you.

Enjoy!

Lyrics of the song
MULI (AGAIN)
by Gary V & Regine Velasquez

Muling hinahanap  (Searching again)
Ang dating paglingap na mula sa'yo (My previous longing for you)
Muling umaasa (Hoping again)
Sa dating nadaramang laan sa'yo (For my previous feelings saved for you)
Mula ng magwakas, tapusin ang lahat (Since it ended, all is finished)
Ay naritong nagmamahal pa rin (I am still here loving you)
Pa'no kaya maibabalik (How to bring back)
Ang damdamin mong dati (Your feelings before)

[Regine]
'Di ba't ikaw pa (Wasn't it you?)
Unang may nais na tapusin na (Who first wanted to end it)
Habang panahon (All this time)
Pinilit limutin ka hanggang ngayon (I tried to forget you until now)
Mula ng magwakas, tapusin ng lahat (Ever since it ended, everything is done/finished)
Hindi maikakailang ikaw pa rin  (It cannot be denied that it's still you)
Papa'no kaya maibabalik Ang hangaring dati (How to bring back my intentions before?)

[Both]
Refrain:
Ba't di nagkatagpo (Why didn't we meet?)
Bakit tuloy nagkalayo (Why did we eventually part?)
Bakit mayro'n pang nadarama (Why do I still have feelings)
Gayong hindi na tayong dalawa (Since it's no longer the two of us)
Bakit magwawakas (Why would it end)
Pag-ibig na wagas (A love that is eternal)
Ma'ri bang mangyari pang ibigin pang...(Can it be that you will love me...)
Muli (Again)

[Regine]
Kung muling iibigin (If I will love you again)
H'wag sanang lisanin nang tulad noon (I hope you will not leave me like before)
Pagluha'y di na kaya (I can no longer bear crying)
H'wag na sanang isipin nang tulad gayon (Don't think of anything like that anymore)

[Gary]
Hanggang sa nagwakas, (Until it ended)
Natapos ang lahat (Everything was done)
Ay naritong nagmamahal pa rin (And I am still here loving you)
Paano pa ba maibabalik (How can I bring back)
Ang hangaring dati (my intentions before)
(Ma'ri pa kayang muli....) (Can it still happen again?)

[Both]
REFRAIN:
Ba't di nagkatagpo (Why didn't we meet?)
Bakit tuloy nagkalayo (Why did we eventually part?)
Bakit mayro'n pang nadarama (Why do I still have feelings)
Gayong hindi na tayong dalawa (Since it's no longer the two of us)
Bakit magwawakas (Why would it end)
Pag-ibig na wagas (A love that is eternal)
Ma'ri bang mangyari pang ibigin pang...(Can it be that you will love me...)Muli (Again)


Nandito lang ako (I am just here)
(bago lumayo sa pilling mo) - before i depart from you
Higit kang kailangan kailan man (I need you more forevermore)
(hanggang kailan kaya naman) - Until when?
Mahal kita (I love you)
(tila)- as if
hanap ka (Searching for you)
(sana) - I hope
(tunay kaya ito) - is this real?
Minsan pang bigyan ng daan (Give way/chance once more)
Pag-ibig na sa'yo nakalaan (My love that's saved for you)

[Both]
REFRAIN:
Ba't di nagkatagpo (Why didn't we meet?)
Bakit tuloy nagkalayo (Why did we eventually part?)
Bakit mayro'n pang nadarama (Why do I still have feelings)
Gayong hindi na tayong dalawa (Since it's no longer the two of us)

For the Longest Time - Billy Joel

I can't believe I found time to blog these days! 
I miss visiting my friends at entrecard, I missed updating my profile, I missed earning online. I am still at a lost with Google Adsense when I said I am going to master Adsense.

I have forgotten how things were before I plunged into a legal pit I have gone through.  No, I wasn't the subject of any prosecution or legal battles in court. I was trying to be a lawyer for the past 4 years and more of my life. The bar exam had just been concluded and I am still at a plethora on how the heck was I able to at least survive it! Well, surviving the bar exam was my goal, not so much on passing it.  Oh well, I am sounding so pessimistic already.

Yet another pessimism in me shouts! I am still an amateur here in the blog world despite my blogging for more than three years already.

Hah! For the Longest Time indeed!


Billy Joel

Dum dum dum 
Oh oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time 
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time 

If you say goodbye to me tonight 
There would still be music left to write 
What else could I do? 
I'm so inspired by you 
That hasn't happened for the longest time 

Once I thought my innocence was gone 
Now I know that happiness goes on 
That's where you found me and 
When you put your arms around me 
I haven't been there for the longest time 

Oh oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time 
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time 

And that voice you're hearing in my heart 
Ain't the greediest miracle of all 
It's how I need you 
And how you needed me too 
That hasn't happened for the longest time 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/t/the+overtones/the+longest+time_20906400.html ] 
Maybe this won't last very long 
But you feel so right 
And I could be wrong 
Maybe I've been hoping too hard 
But I've come this far 
And it's more than I hoped for 

Who knows how much further will go on? 
Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone 
I'll take my chances 
I forgot how nice romance is 
I haven't been there for the longest time 

I had second thoughts all this time 
I said to myself hold on to your heart 
Now I know the woman that you are 
You're wonderful so far 
And it's more than I hoped for 

I don't care what consequence it brings 
I have been a fool for lesser things 
I want you so bad 
I think you ought to know that 
I intend to hold you for the longest time 

Oh oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time 
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time 
Oh oh oh (the longest) for the longest time 
Oh oh oh the longest, for the longest time

Kunin mo na ang Lahat Sa Akin - Jeremiah / Angeline Quinto



This is an original interpretation by the group Jeremiah and was revived by Angeline Quinto as a theme song for the ABS-CBN program "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin" (translation: I will Only Love You Once) starred by Coco Martin and Maja Salvador.


First, I would like to let you know that these artists are good looking and they could also act. 


This entry is intended to translate the song for the benefit of those who want to know the message of the song.


Lyrics of the song with my translation


Kunin mo na ang Lahat Sa Akin - Jeremiah / Angeline Quinto


May gusto ka saking mahal (You have a liking for my love)
May balak kang agawin sya (You have plans to take her)
Itsura pa lang sakin lamang ka na (On your looks, you have an edge)
Ligawan mo sya siguradong magwawagi ka (Court her, for sure you will succeed)

Nakikiusap ako sayo, nagmamakaawa (I am begging you, pleading to you)
Kunin mo nang lahat sa akin (Take everything from me)
Wag lang sya (Not her)

Kunin mo na ang lahat sa akin (Take everything from me)
Wag lang ang aking mahal (but not the one I love)
Alam kong kaya mong paibigin sya (I know you can make her fall for you)
Sakin maagaw mo sya (You can take her form me)
Pakiusap ko sayo magmahal ka na lang ng iba (I'm begging you, please love another)
Kunin mo na ang lahat sa akin (Take everything from me)
Wag lang ang aking mahal (but not the one I love)
Ikamamatay ng puso ko (It will cause death to my heart)
Pag sa aki'y inagaw mo sya (If you take her from me)
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/a/angeline_quinto/kunin_mo_na_ang_lahat_sa_akin.html ]
May pakikilala ako sayo (I will introduce you to someone)
Kasing ganda ng mahal ko (As pretty as the one I love)
Sya na lang ang ibigin mo (You fall in love with her)

Nakikiusap ako sayo, nagmamakaawa (I am begging you, pleading to you)
Kunin mo nang lahat sa akin (Take everything from me)
Wag lang sya (Not her)

Kunin mo na ang lahat sa akin (Take everything from me)
Wag lang ang aking mahal (but not the one I love)
Alam kong kaya mong paibigin sya (I know you can make her fall for you)
Sakin maagaw mo sya (You can take her form me)
Pakiusap ko sayo magmahal ka na lang ng iba (I'm begging you, please love another)
Kunin mo na ang lahat sa akin (Take everything from me)
Wag lang ang aking mahal (but not the one I love)
Ikamamatay ng puso ko (It will cause death to my heart)
Pag sa aki'y inagaw mo sya (If you take her from me)

Ikamamatay ng puso ko (It will cause death to my heart)
Pag sa aki'y inagaw mo sya (If you take her from me)

Most Beautiful Girl - Charlie Rich

Hey, I haven't been blogging!


Yeah! 


I've been busy with so many things, I am overwhelmed!
Our song for the day is a song I never thought I would be singing when things are upbeat, relationships are at its peak and hearts are so filled with contentment.


I have always blogged about this special person to me, who fortunately is the one I want to say sorry with.  I cannot forget the time she was crying because of me.  It was such a giant guilt freezing my soul that is grabbing me back to that past.


It is alright to go back to the past as long as you already know where you are heading in the future.  Yes, I have already focused myself into the future. I have already taken a few steps into stabilizing that future that is why I have all the guts now to look back.


I just want to say sorry! She may not be the most beautiful girl you have seen or you may still have to see but if you happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world, tell her I'm sorry.


Thanks!


Most Beautiful Girl lyrics
Charlie Rich, 


Hey. Did you happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world?
And if you did, was she cryin' ... cryin'.


Hey. If you happen to see the most beautiful girl that walked out on me.


Tell her I'm sorry.
Tell her I need my baby.


Oh, won't you tell her that I love her.


I woke up this morining, realized what I had done.
I stood alone in the cold, grey dawn, and knew that I lost my morning sun.


I lost my head, and I said some things.
Now comes the heartaches that the morning brings.


I know I lost, but I couldn't see.
( From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/c/charlie-rich-lyrics/most-beautiful-girl-lyrics.html )
I let my world slip away from me.


So, hey. Did you happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world?
And if you did, was she cryin' ... cryin'.


Hey. If you happen to see the most beautiful girl that walked out on me.


Tell her I'm sorry.
Tell her I need my baby.


Oh, won't you tell her that I love her.


If you happen to see the most beautiful girl that walked out on me.


Tell her I'm sorry.
Tell her I need my baby.


Oh, won't you tell her that I love her.

House at Pooh Corner

It's been a while since I had my entry here. November was such a busy month afterall, on top of yes another busy days of December when everybody is preparing their Christmas lists.

This is a song I haven't heard for quite a long while as well. I was watching a Winnie the Pooh episode with my baby when suddenly, I heard a very familiar name - Christopher Robin.

Christopher Robin is a traveller and just recently, I have travelled for more than 10,000 miles or so. It was a travel I really can't avoid while most of those trips were for leisure and fun! (This explains my absence from the websphere.)

I so miss blogging; I miss my house as well; I miss my baby too! And now I'm back, with a few more travels on the list (wink!) But it would sure be nice to go back to my house... with Pooh? Yes, with Pooh, my baby and hunny!

This is all for now. Photos coming.

Here is the lyrics.

Christopher Robin and I walked along
under branches lit up by the moon.
Posing our questions to owl and eeyore
as our days disappeared all too soon.
But I've wandered much further today than I should
and I can't seeem to find my way back to the wood.

So, help me if you can I've got to get
back to the house at Pooh corner by one.
You'd be surprized there's so much to be done,
count all the bees in the hive,
chase all the clouds from the sky.
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do,
got a honey jar stuck on his nose.
He came to me asking help and advice
and from here no one knows where he goes.
So I sent him to ask of te Owl if he's there,
how to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

So, help me if you can I've got to get
back to the house at Pooh corner by one
You'd be surprized there's so much to be done,
count all the bees in the hive,
chase all the clouds from the sky .
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh,
back to the days of Christopher Robin,
back to the ways of Pooh

Now for the lyrics of our featured song:

Touch My Hand

Saw you from a distance

Saw you from the stage
Something about the look in your eyes
Something about your beautiful face
 
In a sea of people
There is only you
I never knew what the song was about
But suddenly now I do
 
Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand
Reach out as far as you can
Only me, only you and the band
Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand
 
Can't let the music stop
Can't let this feeling end
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never see you again
 
Can't let the music stop
Until I touch your hand
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never get the chance again
I'll never get the chance again
I'll never get the chance again
 
I see the sparkle of a million flashlights
A wonder wall of stars
But the one that's shining out so bright
Is the one right where you are
 
Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand
Reach out as far as you can
Only me, only you and the band
Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand
 
Can't let the music stop
Can't let this feeling end
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never see you again
 
Can't let the music stop
Until I touch your hand
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never get the chance again
I'll never get the chance again
 
Saw you from the distance
Saw you from the stage
Something about the look in your eyes
Something about your beautiful face

Heart of Gold - Neil Young

This is my entry to Techie She’s Lucky Blogger Weekly GiveawaysWeek 18. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from WAHWM ofWork at Home Wife and Mother.


It's a stormy Sunday afternoon.  The people are doing different types of activities indoors: kids playing computer games, my dad watching TV, my mom playing cards with friendly neighbors and I am clicking a few on line adverts to kill time.  I fall asleep when I hold my book; the noise of these people around me awakes me so I have nothing left to do but click.  Then I came back to Techie She's website and I saw an opportunity to write about my routine of clicking for money's sake!


I was just comparing myself to a computer customer beside me. He was bragging about the items he gathered from one online game.  I think it was a level up game (which I am not even familiar with).  That was his way to spend money, clicking is my way to earn.  So do the math.  The person who pays to play a game earns virtual gifts, virtual products, virtual success.  The person who pays online hours while clicking on the side earns a few cents but taken together as a whole becomes substantial. I play, once in a while but in general, I consider playing games a waste of time!


Oh well, that's how people spend their most precious money, that's how they spend their leisure, that's just the way I see it when it comes to ways I could earn, while letting time pass.


I am thankful for fellow bloggers who give opportunity for others to write, update their blog site and given a chance to earn a few bucks.  I consider myself a newbie in this arena because I haven't had my focus on technicalities yet.  I still have a long way to learn. For now, I am contented to write then earn. ;-)


I think I am still a searcher, miner or learner and to end this entry, I am sharing with you this Neil Young song:


HEART OF GOLD

I want to live,
I want to give
I’ve been a miner for a heart of gold.
It’s these expressions I never give
That keep me searching for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.

I’ve been to hollywood
I’ve been to redwood
I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
I’ve been in my mind, it’s such a fine line
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.

Keep me searching for a heart of gold
You keep me searching for a heart of gold
And I’m getting old.
I’ve been a miner for a heart of gold. 


Fly With Me - Church song

FLY WITH ME

When you try to dream and fly but never reach the sky. Do you ask yourself, do you ever wonder why? Then you close your wings and hide, you never want to see the sky. 

Can’t you see the children playing, running under the sun? Can’t you hear them singing with hearts and voices as one? `Cause they believe in love, they believe in love! 

Refr. Come with me to the sky, let us fly! Open up your wings an well shall go up high! Just believe that you and I will fly together, if we are one, we can fly beyond the sky! 

//:Only love can make you free and simple as a child, and you never fear `cause you know someone’s at your side. Our strength is unity, so come an fly with me:// Refr. 
//:Come with me to the sky and fly with me:// (3x) //: Fly with me :// (fade out)




I attended the mass sponsored by one of the government agencies here.  This song was lined up by the choir which they sung during the communion. I had goose bumps as soon as I figured out that I am so familiar with the song which I haven't heard for such a long time!


When I was in college, i knew I was a "junk" because I didn't know where to go. I tried everything one could ever imagine only to end up debunking my religion, including the negation of God's existence.  I did all things which I thought I could manifest human strength and superiority... and naturally, my spirit died.


When one's spirit dies, no action would seem to become right; no decision would turn out to be great; no word would turn to be helpful. Nothing. One wakes up not knowing where to go, what to do or whom to go with. It was a very boring, deafening, killing and solitary life although you are surrounded by people you think your friends.


Friends may be physically there with you but because your outlook have gone awry, no one can understand you; no one to talk to; no one to hang on to- not even your family.


I was in deep slumber. I shied away. I was only with few people whose interest I could hardly get into my system. That was me before.


I have flown above the clouds and it was amazing. Of course I meant that I boarded the plane and looked at the awesome creature of God which I couldn't have experienced if I denied the revival of my spirit.  I  fly a lot lately that is because God has given me back my strength and continuously equip me to put my head high while my heart is still under His control.

Bangon - Rico Blanco

Today is the anticipated arrival day of yet another typhoon visiting the Philippines.  The news says this is going to be a super-typhoon having a wind of at least 150kph.  


As one of our task to be of aid to the community, we were assigned to render an overtime work to monitor the movement of the storm and most especially to monitor the general situation of the local governments.  We are in a coastal area so that is one of the gravest considerations.  We are not so worried about lands slides since the mountains in our locality still have lots of trees.  But we are hoping to survive this typhoon.


Since the typhoon "Ondoy" wrecked havoc in my beloved province in 2009, I am here in the office right now, with the only intent to be able to help the people in any little way I can.  Sending information as to the location of the gravely affected communities is for me, constitutes a big help to the people.


Now is the start of our monitoring so I have to focus on the work now. I am leaving you with the lyrics of the song Bangon (Rise Up) written and sung by Rico Blanco  dedicated to the victims of typhoon "Peping".


Enjoy!


BANGON (RISE UP)
Pinaluhod tayo, (we were forced to our knees)
Sa isang hagupit (with one wrath)
Niragasa, sinalanta, (pushed, damaged)
Pinaluha (brought to tears)

Humupa ang unos, isang bahaghari! (The disaster had stopped, one rainbow)
Dala ng bukang liwayway- (brought by the dawn)
Pag-ibig, Pagkakaisa (Love, Unity)


BANGON (RISE UP)
Pilipinas kong mahal (My beloved Philippines)
Akay ang pananampalataya sa may kapal (Armed with faith in the Almighty)
AHON (STAND UP)
Buhay sa yong dugo (Alive in your blood)
Ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino (the strength which is the mark of a true Pilipino)

At nagising ang bayanihan* (and unity was awaken)
Milyon milyon naging isa (millions became one)
Walang kami (there is no us)
Walang kayo (no YOU)
Walang sila (no THEM)
Tanging ligaya (the only joy)
Ay pag alay ng sarili sa iba (is giving oneself to others)

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/r/rico_blanco/bangon.html ]
BANGON (RISE UP)
Pilipinas kong mahal (My beloved Philippines)
Akay ang pananampalataya sa may kapal (Armed with faith in the Almighty)
AHON (STAND UP)
Buhay sa yong dugo (Alive in your blood)
Ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino (the strength which is the mark of a true Pilipino)


Bridge:
Hindi ka namin iiwan (We will not leave you)
Hindi tayo susuko! (We will not surrender)
Lulusong tayo't magtatagumpay (We will move forward and succeed)
Magtatagumpay! (We will succeed!)

BANGON (RISE UP)

Lahat nitong mga pagsubok (All these challenges)
Ay ating kayang lagpasan (we shall overcome)
Lahat nitong mga pagsubok (all these challenges)
Ay ating kayang lagpasan (we shall overcome)

This is it - Michael Jackson





I miss Michael Jackson. I have always admired him and loved his songs you know. Before he passed away, he was still able to create another song and this is one of the. I love listening to this song because it reminds me so much of him. 


I bought a DVD of his concert and let the kids watch him dance, sing and perform all the stunts at the concert stage.  They adore him!


This was the song that played following his death.  I am so happy to hear this played in the airwaves because I miss his voice.  I heard this song when I was driving back home and increased the volume of the stereo.  Ever experienced that feeling of suddenly hearing the sound of a familiar voice? That was how I felt.


This is exactly how I felt when I saw a very familiar face in a social website while browsing at friend's page.  I said goodbye to this person at the height of my personal crisis.  During those times, I saw that being in a relationship has more complexities than solutions to what I have been going through.  To cut the long story short, I wrote a message to this person.  I felt ignored. I let it pass. Days passed and I decided to add the person as my friend.  I went overboard, my profile was blocked.  It was a deadlock for me.


My heart was crushed!


Days and nights passed and still this person filled my mind, including my dreams.


Then I decided, this is it! This has got to be it. I will message her again and express my apologies for hurting her. 


I haven't thought that messaging her again was difficult, but I felt relieved. For the first time in my life, I told her sorry and asked for her forgiveness.  Although forgiveness is still far from reality, I felt a new energy passing through my veins. It felt liberating!  As if I saw someone smiling genuinely at me.  Never mind the embarrassment, never mind the anger I may receive from the other end, never mind my dreams about her, because somehow I was freed. 


Now I am just waiting to be forgiven.


My liberty started to materialize when I said to myself that I will message her again: This is it! This is it because she may either forgive me or assure to me that I no longer exist!


To end, there goes the story of yet another adventure!






This is it - Michael Jackson

This is it, Here I stand
I'm the light of the world
I feel grand
Got this love, I can feel
And I know, Yes for sure it is real

And it feels as though
I've seen your face a thousand times
And you said you really know me too yourself
And I know that you have got addicted with your eyes
but you say you're gonna leave it for yourself
Oh
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on baby just understand

This is it
I can say
i'm the light of your world
run away
This is it
we can feel
This is real
Every time I'm in love that I feel

And I feel as though I've known you since a thousand years
And you tell me that you've seen my face before
And you said to me that you don't want me hanging around
many times wanna do it here before
Oh yeah
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on baby just understand

This is it
I can feel
I'm the light of the world
This is real
This is it
feel my song
And I can tell you feel that way

And I feels as though I've known you for a thousand years
And you said you saw my face yourself
And you said want to go with you on a while
And I know that it's really for myself
Oh yeah
I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on please dear understand

I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thought that I would be your lover
Come on dear please understand
Oh yeah

I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan

Straight Talk - Dolly Parton

This post brought to you by Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

"What would you buy with extra money you save?"

This is just one of the few questions that a professional like me asks in this state of life and in the modern age.  We ask this question because with the additional costs of transportation and communication, we are not really sure if we could have a savings at all.  Finding a way to save is not easy and when it comes knocking on your door, grab it!

At this age of economic globalization and multi-national corporations, we are caught in a web - a web that holds us to where we could find greener pasture - causing families to be separated miles apart.

Communication is the way to bridge that gap.  Talking and chatting for hours make one feel that somehow they are near.  Then again, it entails a big expense! Just compute.

Hook, line and sinker because lucky for us we have Straight Talk on our side, with great savings in mind.

I love the idea that I feel richer with Straight Talk because I cut my cell phone bill in half. You have to be crazy to be on a contract these days when you can get everything you need without one.  Everything you need to get updates from your loved ones is there. You get to talk for 1,000 minutes or send 1,000 messages and get another edge with your 30MB of web data, at half the cost. You can talk about anything, everything. No more shortcuts, no more omitted letters in a text message, no more postponing on the good news that needs to be gotten across.

And what can you do with your savings? A lot! Call a friend more often. Invite them over for a pizza or bring your family to a fancy restaurants or get another plan for your loved ones.  Imagine unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and web for a whole year, for only $499.00!  You can also choose from a wide variety of phone options.

Hook, line and sinker, don't delay.

This is my entry for the day and I got to go to call my mom ;-)

Todo lo que necesitas

 

Watch the video below and enjoy your savings!

 

To end this entry, I feel like singing with Dolly Parton...

Gimme straight talk, straight talk...

straight talk and we'll gonna be alright.

Enjoy Straight Talk!

Beautiful - Christina Aguilera

This is the first time that I am writing about a beauty pageant.  This is the first time that I commented on such contest because it's been a while since I watched or monitored it.  It just so happened that I adore Shamcey so much, a fellow UPian! (UP - University of the Philippines)  It is only today that I've proven that when God loves you, He will give everything to you like Beauty and Brains ;-)


Miss Universe of 2011 has been crowned to Leila Lopes of Angola! What a beauty indeed! God created this beauty for us to appreciate and of course, give back the honor to the One who created it.


I didn't get the chance to watch these beautiful ladies modeled because our working station does not have a television set. I just relied on the updated text message from my beloved.  I was the first in our office to know who the winner was. Thanks to SMS!


We are for Ms. Shamcey Supsup of course. She topped the polls prior to the pageant.  The question to her was: 
which I answered, not knowing what her answer was.  "Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why or why not"


I answered No. Being trained in the legal way of answering questions, I qualified my answer: Religion is a way of life. Marriage is also a way of life but not as deep as religion.  I chose my religion because I have lived all my life with the belief in my God and I will not be happy with a person or an act that is being forced on me and it will not be abruptly changed by someone I barely know.  Marriage is a lifetime commitment but my religion will go with me beyond my grave. (I forgot to say "Thank you" since we don't use this in the bar exam. haha!)


To which Shamcey answered: ” If I had to change my religious beliefs, I will not marry the person that I love. Because the first person that I love is GOD who created me. And I have my faith and my principles. And these what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God too, Thank you.


Like the usual, our countrymen are contented with what Shamcey received during the pageant.  For me, it could have been another crown to the Philippines.  My aunt is mad at me for acting so negatively. She seems to imply that I don't know how to appreciate the efforts of our beauty queen. Don't get me wrong please but I truly appreciate what we have garnered in the Miss Universe. It could have been the crown itself and our sour-graping with what we received in the pageant will only proliferate our attitude of getting contented with what we have.  I am afraid this will just give us the attitude of saying "At least, better than the rest of the 80 contestants" then we will not do anything anymore in the future to prepare even more.  This is typical Filipino attitude.


I am happy for what we have achieved in the pageant but I could have been happier ;-)


I would suggest that next time, we give an answer that has an audience impact; make longer answers and most importantly, hire an interpreter because tagalog construction is different from English.  That is a fact. Shamcey is intelligent, very intelligent, I know that. But intelligence is not equivalent to superior verbal communications especially in a foreign language.


I propose that the Miss Universe Committee (if there is such a thing) should look into the possibility of hiring or training an interpreter for our beauty queens.


Nevertheless, in my heart, I am overwhelmed to know that a lot of people were entertained by the most beautiful women in the world today... and that is all because God created us beautifully... in every single way.


Mabuhay Shamcey!


Lyrics of the song
Beautiful - Christina Aguilera


Everyday is so wonderful 
And suddenly, it's hard to breathe 
Now and then, I get insecure 
From all the pain, 
I'm so ashamed 

I am beautiful no matter what they say 
Words can't bring me down 
I am beautiful in every single way 
Yes, words can't bring me down, oh no 
So don't you bring me down today 

To all your friends you're delirious 
So consumed in all your doom 
Trying hard to fill the emptiness, 
The pieces gone, 
Left the puzzle undone, 
Ain't that the way it is? 

You are beautiful no matter what they say 
Words can't bring you down, no, no 
You are beautiful in every single way 
Yes words can't bring you down, oh, no 
So don't you bring me down today 

No matter what we do 
(no matter what we do) 
No matter what we say 
(no matter what we say) 
We're the song inside the tune 
(yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
Full of beautiful mistakes 
And everywhere we go 
(and everywhere we go) 
The sun will always shine 
(sun will always, always shine) 
But tomorrow we might awake 
On the other side 

'Cause we are beautiful, 
No matter what they say 
Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no 
We are beautiful in every single way 
Yes, words can't bring us down, oh no 
So don't you bring me down today 

Don't you bring me down today 
Don't you bring me down... 
Mmm, today

Born Free - Matt Monroe

Today marks the 10th anniversary, and death anniversary, of the victims of 9/11 attacks in America.  I remember waking up with the news that America was under attack. It was really tragic and the whole world was shocked to the event that led to the conclusion that a religious was is getting even deeper.  That even also led to loss of many more lives, the torment of many peaceful hearts and the anger of many nations.

Today, as I watch the people from all over the world commemorate their loved ones, the victims as well as the survivors, I was reminded of this beautiful song.  I thought of our society, the whole world, the main reason why we exist, is to enjoy life and savor our freedom.

Freedom is not just from physical bounds but most importantly expressed in our freedom from hatred, freedom from fear, freedom from anger and all the bad elements in the world.

We should be living as a free country, a free individual, a free society but not to the point of hurting others, stepping into the liberty of fellowmen, killing precious lives for the proliferation of humanity.

Hatred should be eradicated and replace it with love for isn't it nice to be able to smile at our neighbors early in the morning? Isn't it nice to be appreciated by your boss in the workplace? Isn't it nice to be recognize as a valuable member of the community for our beneficial contributions? A lot of questions pop up but this is just my simple call of saying: "Our freedom ends to where the freedom of others begin."

I heard that from someone and what I mean is that when I think that I am free to do something, I should also think that another person is likewise free to do somethings.  We should be able to balance these. We should be able to recognize that all people are equally situated and among equals, there should be respect.

Oh well, I'm sounding like a priest giving a Sunday sermon. Live free everyone!

Lyrics of the song
BORN FREE

Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart

Live free, and beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star

*Stay free, where no walls divide you
You're free as a roaring tide
So there's no need to hide

Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
Cause you're born free
