I Wish I Was Rich! :D

I haven’t gone jogging and exercising for quite sometime now. I have been too stubborn lately. My busy schedule also added to my stubbornness. I even got sick. Not really sick. I just got mild flu accompanied with cough but I’m okay now. I just needed to get enough sleep. I got stressed out because of my schedule last week.
Despite being sick for few days, I am still fat. :( I better get myself effective weight loss pills to help me burn the fats that I have incurred for being lazy. Sigh. I was thinking about working out in a gym but that will mean spending a lot of money. I still have to consider saving for my homecoming next month. A lot of saving to do rather than spending, huh? How I wish I have that much money. Lol!

Holiday Shopping

Holidays are coming! Shopping malls are packed with people once again. Long queues on department stores, shoppers getting busy selecting the important items to buy, barcode scanner will also gonna be heard all over the mall. Sigh! I bet Kuerdas band members are getting ready to do their early holiday shopping spree so that they won’t get hassled by all these.
It was good news when a new shopping mall opened in General Santos City. The Generals will have an easy way of selecting which malls to go to for their shopping galore.

Adam Lambert Controversy

I have been a fan of Adam Lambert during the previous season of American Idol. I find him very talented and actually hoped that he won the contest.

Just recently his sexually charged performance on-stage in the American Music Awards resulted an outrage of a lot of viewers of the show. He kissed a male keyboard player, dragged a female dancer around and also had a dancer simulate an oral sex with while performing. Not only that, he also showed a dirty finger that night.

It actually made too much buzz since he did it all in one show. He said that other performers did some “adult”moments in the show and it didn’t cause any outrage. Well, Lambert, I think that just explained it.

His being openly gay may also have something to do with the outrage. He may have gotten carried away because of the explicitness of his song but he should have known better than that. Besides, even if he didn’t win the American Idol, but as a public figure, he should have behaved himself.

Well, after all has been done, I think it was good that he didn’t win the American Idol.

Getting Ready For A Wedding

One of our cousins, Boying, will get married next month. So I’m planning to go home before the scheduled wedding day so that I can spend time with my family and at the same time, attend our cousin’s big day. I wonder where they’re going to hold the wedding reception? It would be nice if it’s a garden with pond pumps. I bet it’s going to be a grand wedding.
I’m getting excited about it. I wonder if they’d hire the Kuerdas band to play. I hope they would. It’s gonna be great!
After that wedding will be Michelle’s wedding which doesn’t have a definite date yet. But it’s going to be next year too. We’re just counting months on who’s going to get married next then. Lol!

Lainy’s House Under Construction…

Lainy’s house is under construction. Not exactly the whole house but just her room actually. She had her room painted and I think reconstructed as well. The living room, according to her is a mess. She didn’t send a picture of how the living room looked like but I can just imagine the mess. Lol! If I am to suggest something in her room, it would be nice if she add stainless steel tiles.

Kuerdas band members for sure have difficulty during practise sessions since they do it at Lainy’s house. I wonder when the renovation gets done.

Indian Boy

I received this email from a friend and I find it funny. I hope it’s somehow going to put a smile on your face today. Enjoy!

A little Red Indian boy asked his father, the big chief and witch doctor of the tribe, “Papa, why is it that we always have long names, while the white men have shorter names – Bill, Tex or Sam, for example?”

His father replied, “Look, son, our names represent a symbol, a sign, or a poem for our culture –not like the white men, who repeat their names from generation to generation.

Also, it is part of our makeup that in spite of everything, we survive.

For example, your sister’s name is Small Romantic Moon Over The Lake, because on the night she was born, there was a beautiful moon reflected in the lake.

Then there’s your brother, Big White Horse of the Prairies, because he was born on a day that the big white horse who gallops over the prairies of the world appeared near our camp and is a symbol of our capacity to live and the life force of our people.

It’s very simple and easy to understand.

Do you have any other questions, Little Broken Condom Made in China?”

International Gigs…

When I was still with the band, there were offers for us to go abroad. To be professional performers in Japan. We were still young back then and most of use were still in school. So we declined the offers and just enjoyed singing in the local pubs in GenSan. Since the band have now become known not only in GenSan but some other cities in Mindanao, I bet they’ve also been offered to work abroad. I hope they’d take the opportunity one day. Life for them would be so nice if that’s going to happen. They might afford to have a trip abroad and have gigs in other countries. International gigs! Wow! What a dream! lol!
