Malibay Christian Choir

I joined a chorale group in our Church. Aside from some other Church duties that kept me really busy, the chorale which we call Malibay Christian Choir, is also one of the many groups I have been going with this past couple of months. We have been practicing a lot because we prepared for a competition which took place last Sunday. The event was called Musikang Atin 2011 Elimination which was participated by members of Iglesia Ni Cristo. This event actually made it's 2nd debut this year and it made more members of the Church to actively participate in glorifying our Lord Almighty by singing beautiful songs to Him.

I myself have been a witness to another great activity prepared by our Church Administration. I am really glad I was able to join. Not only did I have fun, I'm glad to be able to make use of my talent in serving the Lord.

Our group actually joined the competition with the hopes of being able to be part of the finalists for Musikang Atin. Fortunately, with the grace of God, we got in! We're headed to the final round of the chorale competition!

We are all going to work real hard for the competition. I'm just so happy to learn that we were one of the top 5 finalists. We are going to double our effort and hopefully get the first prize! :D

Here are some of the pictures taken last Sunday:

And more to come on the Musikang Atin 2011 Grand Finale! :D

Missing A Hobby...

I'm a movie fanatic but lately I missed a lot of new great movies. It would be either because I don't have the time or it could be because I don't have the money to spend. LOL! I remember, I used to just watch movies at home when I lived with my cousin Michelle. I used to just turn on the TV set with its rca video cables connected to the VCD player, put on the CD of the movies I want to watch and eat popcorn in the comforts of our room. I used to spend my weekends just doing movie marathon. But now, I can't even find the time to watch my favorite noontime show on T.V. How I miss those good old days. Although it's not at all that productive, watching T.V. or movies somehow make me forget about my worries. It takes me to places I never been at, make me fall in love all over again and also make me cry sometimes. Watching movies make me forget about stress at work as well.

Now that I've realized all these, I'll try to find time on my weekend to watch a movie or two. Hmmm. What are the new feel good movies nowadays? Any suggestions? :)

Finding Solution For My Laundry Problem

I did some of my laundry just few minutes ago. I don't wash my clothes all at ones because I know that I'll get my hands bruised again. Unfortunately, no matter how little clothes I wash, I still got my hands bruised. :( I haven't bought a washing machine yet. I also don't want to bring them to the laundry shop because I don't trust my laundry to the peeps at the shop. I'd rather have my hands bruised for as long as I know my clothes are all clean.

I used to have a lady who comes over at my house to do my laundry but she's no where to be found lately. Someone told me she's already got a job somewhere. Now I don't have a choice but to do the laundry myself.Link
I still wonder why my hands kept getting bruised. I think I've tried all types of detergent, looked for mild detergent bars and powder, but the result to my hands is the same. The wounds are really painful. I wonder if the hard water which dries the skin have something to do with my bruises. I actually just learned about the hard water and the use of a water softener to eliminate unwanted contents of hard water. water softeners have this equipments ready to ship and is easy to install.

Hmm.. Could that be the solution to my laundry problem? I might as well give it a try, don't I? :)

Proud Of You, Shamcey Supsup

"Miss Universe 3rd Runner Up... Ms. Philippines, Shamcey Supsup!". After hearing that announcement, I was a bit disappointed. I was really expecting that our candidate, Shamcey Supsup, is going to take home the Ms. Universe crown!

A lot of people questioned the result of the beauty pageant. Why not Shamcey when she was the only one who didn't have an interpreter, answered the question with confidence and delivered the best answer during the Q&A portion of the beauty pageant? Even Oprah had this to say:

"If the only basis is the Q&A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Phils. deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Phils. answered straight to the point." -Oprah Winfrey (via NBC News)

Here was the question and Shamcey's answer during the Q&A portion:


If you would have to change your religious beliefs, would you marry the man you love? Why or why not?

Miss Philippines:

"If I would have to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person I love. Because the first person I love is my God who created me. I have my faith, my principles. And if that man really loves me, he should also love my God."

A lot of us, especially we Filipinos, expected that our candidate is going to win. She sounded very confident and was really very beautiful every time she walks on the stage. She has that grace that everyone may have noticed.

I don't know what happened with how the judges scored the pageant. I'm still proud that another Filipina has been recognized all over the Universe. Even though she wasn't able to take home the crown, she's the most beautiful. And for us Filipinos, Shamcey Supsup is our Ms. Universe! :)

Bonding With Friends In My Pad

I've been inviting friends over here at my studio-typed room. It definitely isn't a big and spacious apartment type room but they seem contented and happy being in my small pad. Maybe because it's somehow cozy and I think they like how I take care of them while they're here. Most of the time, I cook for them even though I know the food doesn't taste that good. Atleast they pretend to like whatever food I served. LOL!

There are a lot of things I'd like to change in my room. I just don't have time. Hopefully this weekend I'd be able to somehow beautify my little pad and make some changes. That is if I have the time. Or do it some other long weekend. I think I have to change my floor mat and check out scion tc custom floor mats online. Whatever is not too expensive for me. And also if I have the time and money, I'll change the paint on my walls. :D

I love entertaining guests every now and then. Although it's tiring sometimes, it's actually cheaper for me to bring them in my pad than spend a lot of money in fast food chains just to bond with my buddies.
