2010 FIFA World Cup Official Theme Song

Mr. Boredom stroked again in me but out of this came something nice. I made a lyric video of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, South Africa official theme song which is entitled Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) performed by Shakira.


In this lyric video of mine, I featured, in right order, all the banners of the previous FIFA World Cup Events. I also included all the 32 participating country flags of this year's competition. In the end of the video, you'll see pictures of all the stadiums used in all the FIFA World Cup Events in the previous years as well as this year. 

This took me around 3 hours in the making. Not too long huh? Hahhaha! Check out my other lyric videos found  in my youtube channel by clicking here. Don't forget to subscribe and drop some comments! GOD SPEED!

An Open Letter to My Avid Readers

Goodie goodie Morning!

The month of June of this year has been a blast of entries. It has the most number of posts ever in this blog of mine. Inspired? Yes but moreover, what triggered my inner blogging spirit to blog everyday were my free retarded days I had for the whole month.

I have been in the house for 8 consecutive days and I tell ya! It's super crucial and dreadful! All you do is eat and sleep. Sounds simple but if you experience getting stuck in your house for 8 consecutive days doing the same thing knowing you'll do the same the next day, you'll realize boredom can kill a person! I swear! Hahaha!

So to kill the monotony of my actions in all the days of June of this year, I decided to do what I love to and one of which is blogging. That explains well on why I have tons of blogposts in the month now. Okay, time to explain why I'll be blogging no longer than the usual, I do in the month.

Schooling time for me is about to begin because July is fast approaching. Super fast approaching! Yeah! Like I only have a few hours to make the day turn July 1. Hahahaha! Oh yea! Moving on, I do hard stuff on my studies and I prioritize it among all the things I do. I really work hard on it so expect not to much of posts every week.

Don't give me a grumpy face thur! :D Smile! It doesn't mean I'll quit blogging XD *chuckles* And the hell I'll never quit blogging as long as I have the things I need to do so :) You inspire me to blog blog blog readers! That's it for now :] Love lots! Thank you so much!

Movies I Will Watch

Today was a blast of rehearsals for my hosting job for an event this coming Sunday, July 4. If you want to know about it, click here. I'm quite tired but I have all the energy to flaunt out the movies I'm craving for to watch. Check out my top three What-to-Watch Movies for the rest of the days of the month.

First up, we have nothing less but M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender". My sister and I are big fans of this hit cartoon series and both of us can't wait for its 'human' version film to be out in the movies this July.

Hitting my list in number two is the third installment of the "Twilight Saga: Eclipse". It has been a couple of weeks now since the trailer surfaced for millions of Twilight die-hard fans (include me in the list :D) that expected to hit the chart of most watched movie of the year. This will be in theaters on June 30 - Tomorrow!

Lastly, I want to watch Disney's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".  I just want to watch this movie because it's fictional. Enough said. I love stories having actions and powers so yea- I will watch this for sure :)  This film will be out on July  16, 2010.

I'm done with my top three list of movies to watch. How about you? What are the movies you look forward to watch by the start of the month? See ya at the movies!

New Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2 Trailer Released

All Harry Potter fanatics like me, are for sure dying to watch the finale of the worldwide phenomenon. Recently, a new trailer of the last part of the famous Harry Potter Series was released to the public and revealed a couple of big actions that will be seen in the movie.

Here is the trailer.

Excited? What do you think how I feel? I've been a die-hard fan of the Harry Potter Series since it came out of the movies way back in 2001 :D. And yes, I know, I'm not alone. Hahaha. I am and perhaps including you- we are just two of the billions of Harry Potter avid fans in the world.

Okay, enough of the Harry Potter fan thingy, let's go back to the real topic here. *laughs*

We all know that every part of the Harry Potter Movies shown in theaters are so long. And true, it's really so long that all of them could be done in two-parts each but to make things simpler and better, with the consent of the hit book series author J.K. Rowling, the filmmakers have decided to trim down subplots of the story, focusing Harry's life only.

All Harry Potter fans know this :) This much awaited last part of the movie is jam-packed with so many actions that it couldn't be contained in one movie. This explains why there are two parts for the last movie. Since it's the last- everything should be done all at the best best best! :D

The first part of "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows" will open in theaters on November 18 (Philippines) of this year while the second half won't be out until July 14, 2011. That will be nearly 10 years since the first movie hit the screens in 2001.

Both parts of the last movie were done in 2D but it will be shown in 3D after it will be converted in post-production. This is the first time a full-movie will undergo the process.

I just can't wait to watch the finale of my favorite Harry Potter Series. How about you?

Seventeen year-old, Robert James Reid is originally from Australia. He was a gymnast and a swimmer. He moved with only his father to the Philippines, leaving his mother and sister back in Australia.

James was having troubles adjusting in the country as he is experiencing problems with a different academics and social skills, especially the language. James is the only housemate among the Teen-ternationals to have Filipino blood.

Baby James to his fellow housemates, James is considered among the nicest and well-liked housemates this season, not to mention being the cutest housemate of PBB Teen Clash 2010 as other people say :) James made the people vote for him for being so humble and true to himself. 

Later on, the biggest Pinoy Big Brother Housemates Reunion will be held dubbed as "High Five", celebrating the 5 years of PBB. Watch it after Sharon on Channel 3. 

Here is the official and final vote result:
1. James 179,294 - 19.75%

Mama's Birthday!

Today is a very special day. It's the birthday of my Mother, Mama Dolly. She's turning 46 today. She's happy and I'm loving it.

Our family won't be having a big birthday bash like we always do for every birthday celebrant of the month. Instead, we will be celebrating it in a simple gathering of our close relatives tonight. There is nothing much to expect but fun and memorable moments. And that I can't wait! Weee!

 It's not every year that one turns 46 so you really have to rejoice on that very special day. I want my Mother to have a great day today but  I don't know how to do it. Haha. Well, I'll see what I can do. I, for sure will do something she'll smile and laugh :) I won't tell to you guys :P

As of now, Mama Dolly's out of the house attending the Holy Mass. The folks here and I are busy fixing ourselves and preparing the yummy food to be feasted. *evil laugh* Nyahaha! Just kidding.

Beside these words is a raw picture of my beloved Mama Dolly and Mee! Nothing much to say, I just wanna show you guys of her look :) Isn't she beautiful? Haha. I I have to admit, I'm way prettier than her :P

Anyhow, I have to go now. Have a great day! GOD SPEED!

Karate Kid

First and Foremost
Director: Harald Zwart
Writers: Christopher Murhpey (Screenplay)
             Robert Mark Kamen (Story)
Stars:  Jackie Chan
          Jaden Smith
          Taraji P. Henson
Release Date: June 11, 2010 (Philippines)
Genre:  Action, Drama

Official Trailer

12-year-old Dre Parker could've been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother's latest career move has landed him in China.

Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying - and the feeling is mutual - but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng.

In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts "the karate kid" on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han, who is secretly a master of kung fu.

As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life.

First parts of the film wants to tell the viewers how very sad and lonely 'Karate Kid' is and they have done it well. Jaden's expressions and actions are good alright. The scene effects are good too.

But the movie wasn't packed with actions as I expected it to be. Jackie Chan only had a few fight scenes. Though we all know that he is old, he has to keep and live up his name and the subject he is known for his shows and movies. If not, don't let him make any movie. Right? Harsh but true.

The film is revised and basing it to the old version (which I have seen a few months ago in a cable channel)- this 2010 Karate Kid is really good. I admire dramatic parts. The words uttered bu Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith in most of their conversations are full of lessons. I suppose the writer should be congratulated.

The thrilling parts are good. It made me really thrill most especially in a part where 'Karate Kid' fights in for the 'Champion' title in the Kung Fu Tournament.

In the end part of the film. It seems to be hanging but I know it is a part of the show to make it look like that. Celebration. Pause and lights out. Done.

Director: Lee Unkrich
Writer: Michael Arndt
Release Date: June 17, 2010 (Philippines)
Genre: Cartoon, Comedy, Action, Romance

Official Trailer

It's time for Andy Davis to head off to college, leaving his beloved toys unsure about their future. Cowboy Woody thinks they should try to stay at the house in the attic, but the others like the idea of being donated for other kids to play with them. 

Once they arrive at Sunnyside Day Care, it seems like a paradise for toys, but they soon learn things aren't what they seem, as the place is being run by a despotic warden who won't let the toys leave once they learn the truth. 

In the end, Woody and his group fight for their selves to go back to where they truly belong and realize something very important that all toys should know.

In the beginning of the story, everyone could see how wonderful the story of toys go as children see it and play with it- a very creative way to start the movie.

We know that this film is cartoon. The characters are well done. The dubbing and the actions are perfect. The characters' facial expressions are rightly made and sound effects are awesome!

I say congratulations to Pixar for a splendid work! This film is hitting my top ten favorite movies baby! The story is really good. I love it. Overall, I rate it 9/10. This movie is good to be watched whether you have or haven't seen the first two installments. Watch it with your family!

Move Over Summer! Hello School!

Welcome to the month of June! The month that signals the end of summertime and the beginning of class time. Are you ready for a doze of homeworks and school projects? At this point of time you should be. I hope you are.

Another school year is about to open in two to three-weeks time from today. Expect a blast of new beginnings- new friends, new classmates, new teachers, new place, new materials, new rules and new problems. Above all these, welcome yourself to a large window of opportunities.

It's time to flip new study-books open, start writing some important notes and make preparation for a big comeback in your Academy.

For some, school is so tough that they rebel themeselves from making learnings penetrate in their minds. Don't do that and if you do, stop it. Do not close yourself to a world of opportunities- education. It is something you have to use everyday. Take note that it is the only thing that people can't take away from you.

Welcome the new school year with a big bang! How to do it? Good question! School is for all. It's not for the genuine wise and clever people only. And the truth, everyone is! Everyone is wise and clever it's just that majority don't know how to open themselves and use it in the right way.

Intelligent people aren't those who easily memorize lengthy essays and answers. They aren't the ones who show up in school so early- an hour before the bell. Moreover, they are not the people who are the best speakers of English in the class. They aren't even the people who know how to to apply their learnings in real life. Yes. Believe me.

Here is a quick and simple test.

Answer this query: "What is a leaf?"

Well, what is your answer? You would say, "A leaf is a part of a tree.".
That's it. Just that answer, probably. Most people have that answer and I bet you know that.

The real intelligent people are those who answer wisely and correctly the questions being addressed to them without even prepared. They are the ones who have great ideas about certain things without the reference of books and others.

An intelligent person would answer to the question "What is a leaf" with a short and smooth introduction like- "There are a couple of parts of the tree. One of which is the leaf."

The person would add up: "A leaf is a significant part of a tree. It is the place where the production of plant-food is done. It comes in various colors. " and so and so forth.

To be an exemplary student, study all the time. Always, always prioritize your studies. Test your skills and capacity at times. Learn lessons and do some application. Furthermore, ask for God's guidance in everything you do so He'll enlighten your mind and all the aspects of your student life.

You'll know by then, when someone asks you about a certain thing and you find yourself  answering it basing your own perspective and telling him/her using your own words- you're an intelligent person!

Cebu Observes Fête de la Musique (World Music Day)

Alliance Française de Cebu, the Foundry Publishing, and The Terraces Ayala Center Cebu, brings you a night of thanksgiving; celebrating the existence of music in our lives for the third time here in Cebu.

Fête de la Musique or World Music Day will be stage at the Ayala Center Cebu this coming June 19, 2010. Be serenaded with the songs of Cebu beginning 1:00 until 6:00 in the afternoon resounding in the interiors of the mall. Then listen to the lively music from 6:00 pm onwards at the Terraces all in one day.

The drums are set, the guitars are tuned up, the microphones are wind up tight and the performers are ready rise! Enjoy the music in all its forms from Classical Cebuano, Original Pilipino Music, Disco, Pop, Jazz, Blues Hip-hop, Reggae, Rock and others all in one day in Fête de la Musique.

You'll be blown away by these artists and bands who'll perform for you:


Drawing heavily on contemporary reggae acts such as Big Mountain, Aswad and UB40, “Brownman Revival” creatively mixes the traditional roots sound of reggae with OPM pop sensibilities, producing a festive but sensuous strain of Lover’s Rock reggae, with such vibrant energy that never fails to leave crowds winding and grinding their sweaty bodies to the band’s euphoric reggae party.

French DJ, The Springmine Disaster started out as Jean-Gabriel BECKER, who moved to London in 1999 to pursue his life-long love affair with music in English. To promote the artists and releases of the record label he founded, he took on the moniker The Springmine Disaster and established residencies in and around London. He mixes his indie roots with electro, disco, and early techno influences to entertain eclectic crowds, educated purists, and party-loving hedonists.

With 5 studio albums under her belt and consistent presence in the Cebuano music scene, Cattski Espina’s eponymous band churns out a guitar-driven cocktail of sounds that could be pop one moment, folk in another, and modern rock in between. Whatever the sound and source of inspiration may be, expect lyrics that are real in their simplicity and striking in their clarity, running the gamut of human emotions, and packed into raw and powerful vocals that “leave the listener to keep thinking even long after the music has stopped playing.”

There are many bands in Cebu, but there are very few neo tribal rock bands. Fewer still are neo tribal rock bands which have the tenacity to improve their sound and broaden their audience. One such band is Sugbuwanon. From their early gigs at the now defunct Hideout, some band member changes, and a debut album, Sugbuwanon continues to hone their craft and attract new followers. Their lyrics are socially relevant, with the added plus that they can make you get up on your feet to feel the beat even better.

Composed of high school and college students from the University of the Visayas, the multi-awarded UV Chorale has been the pride of Cebu in the arena of chorale competitions. They have performed in Australia thrice and have reaped awards on a national level, as well as in Busan South Korea and Sulawesi, Indonesia. They continue to bring Cebuano-stamped music to the international stage by releasing a debut album containing classic Visayan recordings such as “Usahay,” “Bulan” and many more.

Juress the band was formed in 2005 with its first gig at the old Handuraw on MJ Cuenco. Their music is a blend of alternative, pop, jazz, blues, and rock, and is influenced by acts such as Heather Nova, Liza Phair, Jewel, Sade, and Frank! Their sound is familiar yet uncommon, and it’s hard to find another band in Cebu to compare them with. Their solid musical skills are fronted by a voice as unique as the name the band carries.

The band Hardwood is quite a little-known secret, but a very good one at that. They play Spanish guitar-based tunes reminiscent of Carlos Santana, and the Gypsy Kings, with some originals thrown in for good measure. Junx Muana, one of the guitarists in the band, is also a maker of specialty guitars, a definite plus for Hardwood’s Latin & flamenco-inspired music.

The band Powerspoonz is making their stamp on Philippine rock music history, with a couple of their songs hitting the national airwaves, and with new material waiting to be unleashed. Indeed, they do rock with their fusion of rap, hip-hop, and metal. Easily one of the most sought after bands from the Queen City of the South, their live performances are truly spectacles of power and raw energy.

In the summer of 2008, three brothers decided that instead of giving out Christmas gifts to their friends that year, they’d pool time, talent and treasure to come up with a full-length album. By December 23, their first “digital” album “At Last! Our First” was made available at their official multiply site. It was being given out for free. They have since added a friend to their line up and proceeded to make a name for themselves in the Metro Cebu scene, playing at album launches, music festivals, and were even featured in RCTV’s Tambayan sa Outpost programme. The name of their band is Bethany.

Rescue A Hero
The guys from Rescue A Hero knew each other in high school, lost touch, and got back together and formed the band as it is known now. Inspired by the music of Jeff Buckley, Dashiboard Confessional, Damien Rice, and Death Cab for Cutie (amongst others), they play music for the love, not for fame or money and are a favourite of the Cebuano skater crowd. Rescue A Hero is best experienced live, with the audience jumping and singing their songs back at them.

Turn your Saturday a music and bond day. Be with your family and friends and enjoy live music at its best all for free.

Five Minutes

Just about a couple of hours ago, I went to the mall to fetch some goodies and a bunch of flowers for my grandmother. I wish to visit her in her house in Cebu City.

After pulling out some fruits and crackers in the grocery store, I managed to stand in line at the shortest one in the row of counters. There were over seven people in line and in a rough estimation, it will take me  more of less five minutes to have my turn.

I waited. I was right. It took me five long minutes for the cashier to serve me. I wasn't in a hurry. I just value time that much. You see- time so slow if you wait so you better do something instead of nothing when in a dull situation.

A realization brought by the situation popped into my mind. Five minutes is very valuable. It is a part of our so called one hour. It is a part of our one day. It may seem so small and little to be considered so important but five minutes is part of a year and a decade.

For hundreds of times, people get into situations like I did- wait for a span of time for something.

Time is so precious. I hope you all kow the true value of it. Five mintues of waiting- yes, quite long indeed. In line with this, I have come up a list of what one can do in five minutes or more rather than waiting for something doing nothing at all. Check it out below.

  • make a brewed coffee for dad
  • call and greet a friend
  • clear your bulk mail
  • play with your pet
  • unclutter your desk
  • fry bacon
  • arrange the foods in your fridge
  • ready your clothes for laundry
  • read the news paper
  • wake up your sister who is burning daylight
  • open your house gate for your mom who is driving the family car
  • water the plants

  • pile up trash the dried leaves
  • bury your garbage under your garden grounds
  • enjoy the terrific view of nature
  • pick up some liters scattered all over the place
  • write something about life
  • take pictures of the place

  • sharpen your pencil
  • jot down important notes
  • erase the writings on the board
  • make your homework
  • review your lessons
  • try out for a dance/singing club
  • read an article in your school paper
  • prepare your materials for your next subject
  • check the things in your bag

I guess that's quite enough to end this post. Haha. I hope I'm a big help in making five minutes of your day useful :)
