Jac's Cinta Tiada Akhirnya

>> 30 January 2009

I haven't decipher the English translation of this song but I love it. I found this video from a stupid pinoy anti-bhumiputran (whatever) propaganda in YouTube. LOL. It's funny when two singers with different musical genres are pitted with each other. According to a friend, an entertainment connoisseur, the video is like Britney vs. Celine Dion doing a showdown. Anyway, I enjoyed listening to Jaclyn Victor so much. Very soulful indeed. I can't compare her to anyone in the Philippine music industry. She simply caught my ears & I can't wait to hear more from her. I would like to thank a new found friend Arabella, from Kota Kinabalu for providing me the lyrics of this song. I hope you get to meet your relatives from Cebu in the future. Terima kasih. Jaga diri. =P

Cinta Tiada Akhirnya
by: Jaclyn Victor

Ku yakin cintaku ini
Tak bisa melangkah pergi
Kaku berdiri di sini
Menanti lafaz kasihmu
Biar kau akui dan aku

Gelora asmara tika bersama
Bunga mekar seluruh semestanya
Mimpi indah kita
Bintang berwarna
Janji setia kita
Selama di taman cinta

Cinta tiada akhirnya
Membara kekal ke syurgamu
Tak usah kau raguiku
Sayangku dengarkan kasih
Aku milikmu selamanya

Gelora asmara tika bersama
Bunga mekar seluruh semestanya
Mimpi indah kita
Bintang berwarna
Janji setia kita

Kasih antara kita
Tercipta abadinya
Mungkin memisahkan aku dan dia
Ukir namaku dalam.
Cintamu selamanya
Biar semarakkan kasihmu

Gelora asmara tika bersama
Bunga mekar seluruh semestanya
Mimpi indah kita
Bintang berwarna
Janji setia kita

Gelora asmara tika bersama
Bunga mekar seluruh semestanya
Mimpi indah kita
Bintang berwarna
Janji setia kita
Selama di taman cinta. di taman

The shoe that threatened Francine and the Madame, Mace's golden shoes.

Cookie: Wow sis bagay na bagay sa suot mo. I like the combination talaga.
Eve: Nakaka-sinag naman iyan. Pwede ba 'yan ma sangla? Hahaha.
Francine: (Hmm parang nakita ko na yan sa Divisoria naku naku kahit ganito lang ang suot ko pwede akong maki-sabayan sa rampahan na di naka ukay-ukay noh)
Madame Jo: Is that a Manolo Blahnik or Christian Louboutin? (Naka-taas ang kilay at nakatingin sa ibaba sabay tingin sa likuran) Mine is a classic Roger Vivier stilleto worn by Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II on her coronation.

Viva Pit Señor!

>> 11 January 2009

On the 3rd Sunday of January the world will set their eyes to the island of Cebu for the Sinulog Festival. The festival honors the child Jesus, known as the Santo Niño (Holy Child), patron of the city of Cebu. It is a dance ritual that commemorates the Cebuano people's pagan origin, and their acceptance of Christianity. The festival features a street parade with participants in bright-colored costumes dancing to the rhythm of drums, percussions, trumpets, and native gongs.

The word Sinulog comes from the Cebuano adverb sulog which is "like water current movement," which describes the forward-backward movement of the Sinulog dance. The dance consists of two steps forward and one step backward, done to the sound of drums. The dance is categorized into Sinulog-base, Free-Interpretation. Candle vendors at the Basilica continue to perform the traditional version of the dance when lighting a candle for the customer, usually accompanied by songs in the native language.


On April 7, 1521, the Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan arrived and planted the cross on the shores of Cebu, claiming the territory in the name of the King of Spain. He presented the image of the child Jesus, the Santo Niño, as baptismal gift to Hara Amihan (later named Juana), wife of Rajah Humabon (Carlos). Along with the rulers of the island, some 800 natives were also baptized to the Christian faith. At the moment of receiving the image, it was said that Queen Juana danced with joy bearing the image of the child Jesus. With the other natives following her example, this moment was regarded as the first Sinulog.

This event is frequently used as basis for most Sinulog dances, which dramatize the coming of the Spaniards and the presentation of the Santo Niño to the Queen. A popular theme among Sinulog dances is Queen Juana holding the Santo Niño in her arms and using it to bless her people who are often afflicted by sickness caused by demons and other evil spirits.

After Magellan died on April 27, 1521 on the shores of Mactan, the remnants of his men returned to Spain.

The conquistador Miguel López de Legazpi arrived in Cebu on April 28, 1565, and destroyed the villages, and native settlements ruled by Rajah Tupas. In one of the huts of the burning village, one of López de Legazpi's soldiers named Juan Camus found a wooden box containing the image of the Santo Niño lying amongst several native idols. Historians later said that during the 44 years between the arrival of Magellan, and López de Legazpi, the natives of Cebu continued to dance the Sinulog but no longer worship their anitos but to show their reverence to the Santo Niño.

The Augustinian friars that accompanied López de Legazpi in his expedition proclaimed the statue miraculous and built a church on the site where it was found. The church was called San Agustin Church, later renamed to Basilica Minore del Santo Niño.

After Juan Camus found the Santo Niño in the burning village, López de Legazpi was said to have included the incident in his report, entitled "Relation of Voyage to the Philippine Islands":

"Your Excellency should know that on that day when we entered this village (Cebu, one of the soldiers went into a large and well-built house of an indio where he found an image of the Child Jesus (whose most holy name I pray may be universally worshipped). This was kept in its cradle, all gilded, just as if it were brought from Spain: and only the little cross, which is generally placed upon the globe in his hands, was lacking. The image was well kept in that house, and many flowers were found before it, and no one knows for what object or purpose. The soldier bowed down before it with all reverence and wonder, and brought the image to the place where the other soldiers were. I pray to the Holy Name of his image, which we found here, to help us and to grant us victory, in order that these lost people who are ignorant of the precious and rich treasure, which was in their possession, may come to a knowledge of Him."

Freestyle: All Behind Us Now

>> 09 January 2009

Originally done by Patti Austin this song reminds me of my friend Arcile who left for Auckland, NZ for greener pastures. Miss you Yay. Miss our jamming with Ivan. I wish I can hear you sing this song again in the future. Galing ni Jinky! =)

All Behind Us Now
Hey, I'm so sorry
that it didn't work the way
that we'd always planned
Hey, I'm so sorry
that you went away
and somehow didn't understand

We pretended for so many years, but now
its time to wash away my tears


Cause/And it's all behind us now
cause we've learned to live somehow without
each other
And its easy to see, it ain't never
gonna be the same again

And its all behind us now
cause we found a way to live without
each other
And in time we'll have to see
If its ever gonna be that way again

Hey, I'm so sorry
that I couldn't find the words
that might have made you stay
and hey, it's so funny
how we both can say the same thing in a
different way

We pretended for so many years,
but now its over baby
and so are my tears

I was holdin' out for far too long
But now I finally found where I belong

repeat chorus to fade..

A Night With the Madame

>> 07 January 2009

Eve & Maricel on the background finishing their nth plate while the philanthropist/heiress of the Cebu-based bus company, Madame Jo smiles at the camera. =P

Madame: Young man, is this for the New York Times or Vogue?
Me: No ma'am. I just love taking pictures. It's my hobby really.
Madame: Perhaps I should give you a recommendation to Escolé des Beaux-Arts or the
Ecolé Supérieure de Réalisation Audiovisuelle faculty of photography all in France my dear.
Me: Thanks ma'am but I reckon that the less fortunate talented people will benefit from that.
Madame: I see. Hmm. That's a splendid idea. Do I look majestic with this fur-lined hat my dear?


Cookie Sang Soo 2

I'm done with my make-up! (click!) Hope you like this Cooks. Hmm somehow you look like Bianca on your left profile. =P


On Duty For the Holidays

Rikoy & me had a quick dinner at a certain fast food chain in Divisoria just before the CU call center Christmas party. I know this posting is a bit late but I wondered if this fast food crew member will be spending the holidays at home or at work. I just thought of that since I will surely experience that some time in the future. It is so nice to spend the holidays at home with the entire family. =P

Me: Bukas ba ang lahat ng fast food chain during Christmas at New Year?
Rikoy: Di naman siguro...
Me: Hmm. Basta sure ako may trabaho ang mga taga-call center.
Rikoy: Oo ui.
Me: (Saan kaya magpapasko ang crew na ito?)

Oldie But Goodie

>> 03 January 2009

I've been looking for this video for quite a long time. I started to love this DeBarge hit when I heard it in the now defunct Sandy 101.5 FM back in high school days. I dedicate this song to someone special (Ui...). This footage was taken when Eldra 'El' DeBarge, the soloist was still intact with his siblings as a one group. I know they look weird at their time but this song is still good. Haven't you notice we're using some of the stuffs they're wearing? I can't take 80s fashion though too much plastic and shocking neons. See the dancing? Eew. LOL. =P

Time Will Reveal
By: The DeBarge/El DeBarge

What can I do to make you feel secure?
Remove all your doubts
so that you'll know for sure that you're
the apple of my eyes girl fulfillment of my dreams

Time will show the value of just what you mean to me
More precious than silver
More precious than diamond rings
or anything that I can give you
It wouldn't mean a thing
If you didn't have my love beside you there to guide to through
or any good to know you do...

I know just how you feel
But this time love's for real
In time it will reveal this special love that's deep inside of us
will all reveal in time....

I'll tell you I love you
But you won't believe it's true
More precious than silver
More precious than diamond rings
or anything that I can give you
It wouldn't mean a thing
If you didn't have my love beside you there to guide you through
or any good to know you do....
