With the onset of the Kalilangan Festival, it is expected that Kuerdas get their hands full. A number of Festival and non=festival related gigs were in queue. Of course the regular gig at Tropics is always there, Friday night, Jamaican Night.
As the band members get older each day, they also have to think what the future holds for them. I wonder of they have realized the importance of getting themselves insured. I told my mother it would be a lot better of she try handing them out life insurance quotes. It sure will keep their options open and make them realize that while they are still productive, the best thing to do is save up enough for their future by virtue of these stable insurances. They will reap in no time what they have sow and for sure, there would be no regrets!
Cebu City Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia put on hold the dancing in public of Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) inmates because of the arising speculations about where the donations for inmates have gone.
The inmates have become famous when their video for Michael Jackson’s song “Thriller” was posted in Youtube on 2007. They have become even more famous when Michael Jackson’s choreographer danced with them last month for MJ’s “This Is It” album. Their admirers have provided donations for them which were supposed to go to the inmates’ bank accounts. Apparently, there have been rumors that the money have gone somewhere else. Poor inmates. Now they have become victims of corruption.
I hope this is going to be straightened out sooner. Dancing is the thing that may have changed the inmates’ lives. I hope they give the credit to whom the credit is due. These government officials have never learned!
The former lead guitarist of the Band, Teng Yu, owns a number of pension houses here in the City. He is the one taking charge of them and plays with the band as a hobby and real passion.
Kuerdas will be playing tomorrow, February 20, Saturday – 8PM at Robinson’s Mall in General Santos City. The show is in line with the Kalilangan Festival which is an annual festivity in GenSan.
Tomorrow’s event is sponsored by SMB, General Santos City Office in cooperation with Robinson’s Mall. Kuerdas will be playing back to back with Interfaith Band. Whenever something like this comes up, I’m pretty sure the mall is also having Big Sale on their products!!!
Enjoy your shopping tomorrow at Robinson’s Mall and get entertained with Kuerdas’ r3eggae rhythms!
But then, since she requested for the digital camera, I might as well give it to her. I just hope she’ll eventually learn how to use it.
The glam singer “Lady Gaga” topped Simon Cowell’s “American Idol” mentor wish list for the aspiring “Idol” contestants this year. According to him, Lady Gaga is “one of the most relevant artist in the world as of the moment”. And that she’s smart and he liked her.
I wonder what songs by Lady Gaga will the contestants choose to perform if she becomes the mentor. I am not too “gaga” over Lady Gaga but I like her because of her unique style.
I wonder who are the other mentors for this year’s Idol season.
Life here in Manila is really stressful. Whenever you have to go to places or to other parts of Metro Manila, you must not go during rush hour or else you would have to deal with lots of people in public transportation. You wouldn’t want to sit beside someone who looked like he needed to have some natural acne treatment, do you? 😀 What a silly thought. But that’s really how it goes here. When you ride the train (LRT of MRT) during rush hour, you have to prepare yourself to get squeezed in the train. I am not exaggerating. LOL!
I still love the simple life back in the province. No traffic jam, not too much people, you can breathe the fresh air and I have my family and friends back there. Not to mention the band. If I am to choose between life here in Manila or home, I still would love to go back to my homeland. There’s really no place like home. 😀
