In Preparation for Gigs

It is a hectic week for Kuerdas. With a number of performances scheduled for the week, I bet their zest, vigor and performance level shall be put to a test one more time.
What are the thing they’ve got to prepare before a show?
Here are some of the things that the band is doing before their performances:
  1. Practice for new songs to be included in their line up
  2. Sleep early
  3. Never drink cold stuffs
  4. Minimize smoking

Above all these things is DISCIPLINE. One should be determined enough to acquire that performance level that audience are expecting from them.

Freedom Park Grand Opening!

On September 4, along with the celebration of the 41st City Charter Anniversary Celebration, the General Santos City Freedom Park will open for the General Public’s use. The local government of General Santos City spent millions of pesos for its renovation and beautification. It’s said that outdoor lights will hold the public in awe. I can not wait for its grand opening on September 4.

House Renovation

When we had the house renovated in 2006, it included the floor being furnished with new tiles. When I did the canvass with different hardwares here in the city, I so wanted to have ceramic tile installed. But then I had to stretch my budget and just be practical.
But in case I decide to put up my own house one day, for sure I will choose ceramic tiles for the flooring of our house.
Anyways, I still have to do so much of renovations here in our present abode. Some of the many things I want done are the shoe cabinet, hanging cabinet in the kitchen, painting of the rooms and kitchen. That would require quite a big amount so I better save up enough now if I want all of that realized.

Don’t Give Up On Us Video & Lyrics

Don’t Give Up On Us
David Soul
Don’t give up on us, baby
Don’t make the wrong seem right
The future isn’t just one night
It’s written in the moonlight
Painted on the stars
We can’t change ours
Don’t give up on us, baby
We’re still worth one more try
I know we put a last one by
Just for a rainy evening
When maybe stars are few
Don’t give up on us, I know
We can still come through
I really lost my head last night
You’ve got a right to start believing
There’s still a little love left, even so
Don’t give up on us, baby
Lord knows we’ve come this far
Can’t we stay the way we are?
The angel and the dreamer
Who sometimes plays a fool

When I Can Say Nothing But Rant

Ok. Ok.

There is really nothing much to say. Burn out is getting me down and it is just so hard to go on with what’s left of the entire week when you feel you just want to take a long vacation and have a good rest, relax and have fun.

When was the last time I did that? I can not even remember. There’s so many things bugging me right now. I can not enumerate them all. Some things aren’t worth for publication, LOL!

Anyways, one of the things I am thinking about is to have the hanging cabinet and the shoe cabinet built anytime soon. It does not require industrial equipment at all.

But oh boy! It took us a long time to find the perfect person to do it for us. Come Sunday, the person my mother hired to do the job will be coming over. Well, I hope we could agree on some terms. I so want to have it done since last year.

I will post some photos soon once it’s done.

Enjoy the rest of the week everyone!

More Careful!

For almost two months, our landline phone got disconnected. I wasn’t able to pay on time because I was too busy. There was no one I can ask to do the errands for me. When I went there one time on a Saturday to pay, they told me that they do not accept payments on a Saturday. So it took me almost two months before I got it connected back.
Just two weeks ago, I had it reconnected. I remember three years ago when the line was also disconnected because I left the unlocked phone without me knowing that my brother has been using it for long distance calls and for calling mobile phones! The bill was too high that I got so angry with him. I threatened him I won’t pay the bill and just let the phone disconnected.
Now I have learned my lesson. I am very careful not to leave it unlocked especially for long distance calls.

Happy Birthday, Agustin Yu!

This is a special post to greet Kuerdas Band’s lead guitarist, Agustin Yu, fondly known as Teng-Teng on his very special day. He has been with the band since its formation.
On his birthday today, the band wishes him all the best things in life.
To you Teng, may you have a blessed birthday ever!
HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

New Fridge!

We just purchased a new refrigerator. The family have been without it for two weeks. It was so hard as we couldn’t do grocery shopping. In the two weeks that we didn’t have a working fridge, we tend to not just eat our dinner because we’re all dead tired from work and preparing dinner was more of a hassle.
It’s a good thing there’s a new fridge now!
Came with the new fridge was a big box where there’s a need for a box cutter. Well, the Kuerdas vocals is in charge of that one. He likes to do things around the house.

I Honestly Love You Video & Lyrics

I HONESTLY LOVE YOU
Maybe I hang around here
A little more than I should
We both know I got somewhere else to go
But I got something to tell you
That I never thought I would
But I believe you really ought to know
I love you
I honestly love you
You don’t have to answer
I see it in your eyes
Maybe it was better left unsaid
This is pure and simple
And you should realize
That it’s coming from my heart and not my head
I love you
I honestly love you
I’m not trying to make you feel uncomfortable
I’m not trying to make you anything at all
But this feeling doesn’t come along everyday
And you shouldn’t blow the chance
When you’ve got the chance to say
I love you
I honestly love you
If we both were born
In anoother place and time
This moment might be ending in a kiss
But there you are with yours
And here I am with mine
So I guess we’ll just be leaving it at this
I love you
I honestly love you
I honestly love you
