Get Well Quick, Kuerdas Percussionist

Just a few days before the wedding of my brother, the Kuerdas percussionist, Dexter, met a bike accident. Being one of the groom’s men. we had to look for a replacement. We opted to choose one of my cousins.

I am not fully aware of the accident details but when I saw his face, oh gosh! I can’t believe it’s the Dexter I knew from way back. His face was tattered with bruises. Poor guy!

Well, he is slowly getting past the dark days of his life. I hope he feels better quick emotionally and physically.

Billionaire

I love Bruno Mars! And why not? Not only for the great songs and performances but he’s also half Filipino 😉

Billionaire keeps me wishing I have lots of money to boost, LOL! But my family would keep me grounded and constantly remind me that we don’t actually need earthly treasures. It’s only but fleeting. I still love the song nonetheless 😉

BILLIONAIRE
I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen 

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
For when I’m a billionaire

[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
Yeah I would have a show like Oprah
I would be the host of, everyday Christmas
Give Travie a wish list
I’d probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
And adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had sh-t
Give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this
And last but not least grant somebody their last wish
Its been a couple months since I’ve single so
You can call me Travie Claus minus the Ho Ho
Get it, hehe, I’d probably visit where Katrina hit
And damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
Yeah can’t forget about me stupid
Everywhere I go Imma have my own theme music

[Chorus]

Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
For when I’m a billionaire
Oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire
Oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire

[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
I’ll be playing basketball with the President
Dunking on his delegates
Then I’ll compliment him on his political etiquette
Toss a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it
But keep the fives, twentys (?) completely separate
And yeah I’ll be in a whole new tax bracket
We in recession but let me take a crack at it
I’ll probably take whatevers left and just split it up
So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks
And not a single tummy around me would know what hungry was
Eating good sleeping soundly
I know we all have a similar dream
Go in your pocket pull out your wallet
And put it in the air and sing

[Bruno Mars]
I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
[Chorus]
I wanna be a billionaire so frickin bad!

Prayers Granted!

As part of the preparation of the Kuerdas Band major’s wedding, I asked him to call up the electricity provider for the schedule of rotational outages. Since the wedding was slated on a Saturday, as early as Wednesday he started to call up the company. Luckily, he was told that there was no scheduled power interruption over the weekend.

I told my brother never be too confident. I had to ask the caterer if they can provide honda generator if ever there’s an outage. Unfortunately, they told me that they can’t. So we just had to include it in our week-long devotional prayer which the Lord God Almighty didn’t have any second thoughts in granting everything that we prayed for which made the wedding successful.

We give back all the glory to you, Lord!

I am Going to be An Aunt Soon!

The Kuerdas Band Major’s wife is currently on the family way.

Geez! I am going to be an Aunt real soon! I can’t believe I will get to savor that special moment of being an Aunt before I am going to be a mother of my own baby. Wishful thinking eh? LOL!

Anyhow, I get pissed off everytime the newly weds ride on the bike. It won’t be good for the pregnant bride and would eventually cause harm to the baby (knocks on wood!).

The bride is now taking extra good care of herself though. She better look after herself coz there’s one more life beating inside her womb. I am not too sure if it’s advisable for her to take the best creatine powder. I better tell her to ask her OBgyne about it the next time she go for a visit.

Excited but Dismayed

I actually don’t know what to expect with my upcoming travel. I shall be visiting two big cities in Asia. One I was able to visit the last time out but the other will be my first time. Will the architectural edifices there be made up of Prefabricated steel buildings? Oh well! I just have to wait, see and let the photos do the talking 😉

I am very excited but I feel very dismayed though that I won’t be able to meet up with Windy. There are some huge changes in the arrangements and it just simply ruined everything. I wish I could spend some time with him and give him a treat somewhere. Just a simple gesture to show how much I am grateful for all his good deeds.

I wish!

Performances by the Beach

The Kuerdas Band is often invited to out-of-town performances. Since it’s summer time, most of the occasions are fiestas and bikini open competitions.

Just recently, they were invited out to perform by the beach at Gumasa, Sarangani Province. Though accommodation is always provided, the boys always makes it sure to bring their tents with them. I am not sure though if outdoor firepit is allowed but I am sure the boys would love the idea of chit-chatting by the fireplace after a good and tiring performance.

Well, it must be really wonderful to be at the peak of their passion for music. The do love what they are doing and we’re just here on the sidelines supporting them in their endeavours.

Good Taste, Good Choices

Being on stage for performances, it’s always the Kuerdas Band’s time to shine. There is a need for them to sport their best apparels apart from showing off their God-given talents.

My brothers who are the Band Major and the main vocals respectively always makes it sure that they choose the best apparel available like urban clothes.

You won’t believe it! They would sometimes travel to a neighboring city to be able to make the purchase. I find them complaining most times that there not so many choices here in our own city.

Oh well! Good thing they do have good taste. They always choose unique designs that simply shows the personality of the band as a whole.

The Gift

Since the Kuerdas Band major just recently got hitched, one of the popular wedding songs which the wedding singer, Ally, was able to sing on his big day was The Gift by Jim Brickman as performed by Martina McBride.

Here it goes:

Window Shopping

It has been quite a while since I have had the time to do some window shopping at the Mall. It has been a very busy time for me since the start of this year. Especially the multi-tasks needed for the preparation of the Kuerdas Band Major’s Wedding in April.

Finally, I found time to relax and do what I love doing – window shopping.

It was over last weekend that I spent some leisure hours looking for clothes and items. I passed one of the Electronic shops that displayed a collection of the latest samsung lcd televisions. These looked so beautiful and pulled at my heart strings.

I hope that by the end of this year, I will be able to purchase one of those models that was on display. Just have to wait for my year-end wage bonus to do that.

Looking Great For Those Occasions

After several years of receiving invitations to Weddings, Birthday Parties and in particular Office Celebrations, I have reached a point where I have run out of special occasion dresses.

My Mom keeps reminding me that I have worn some of what I have too many times and I have to pay more attention to how I present myself at these special occasions.

It’s hard being a woman compared to men who are easily attired with a pair of pants and a shirt. However, Mom is right about what she advises and I have to improve my wardrobe of apparels.
