My kind of Gospel Music

One of my latest favorite songs. :) Rock n Roll.!!! Yeah!!

"One Way"
Hillsong United

I lay my life down at Your feet
'Cause You're the only one I need
I turn to You and You are always there
In troubled times it's You I seek
I put You first that's all I need
I humble all I am, all to You

One way, Jesus
You're the only one that I could live for
One way, Jesus
You're the only one that I could live for

You are always, always there
Every now and every where
Your grace abounds so deeply within me
You will never ever change
Yesterday today the same
Forever till forever meets no end

One way, Jesus
You're the only one that I could live for(x4)

You are the Way, the Truth and the Life
We live by faith and not by sight for You,
We're living all for You(x4)

One way, Jesus
You're the only one that I could live for(x4)

5 Facts You MUST Understand if You Are Ever Going to Lose Your Belly Fat and Get Six Pack Abs

1. Many so-called "health foods" are actually cleverly disguised junk foods that actually stimulate you to gain more belly fat... yet the diet food marketing industry continues to lie to you so they can maximize their profits.

2. Ab exercises like crunches, sit-ups, and ab machines are the LEAST effective method of getting flat six pack abs. We'll explore what types of exercises REALLY work in a minute.

3. Boring repetitive cardio exercise routines are NOT the best way to lose body fat and uncover those six pack abs. I'll show you the exact types of unique workouts that produce 10x better results below.

4. You DON'T need to waste your money on expensive "extreme fat burner" pills (that don't work) or other bogus supplements. A special class of natural foods is much more effective. I'll tell you about these natural foods and their powers below.

5. Ab belts, ab-rockers, ab-loungers, and other infomercial ab-gimmicks... they're all a complete waste of your time and money. Despite the misleading infomercials, the perfectly chiseled fitness models in the commercials did NOT get their perfect body by using that "ab contraption"... they got their perfect body through REAL workouts and REAL nutrition strategies. Again, you'll learn some of their secrets and what really works below.

Coolest Guitar Drifting

I saw this video of Andy Mckee in youtube.com months ago. And was very amazed by the way he plays a guitar. And I think you too will be amazed. So i decided to share it with you all. Check it out.


Andy McKee is one of the world’s finest acoustic soloists. After receiving over 20 million views collectively for his Youtube videos which were posted by the independent record label “Candyrat”, Andy’s success is a testament to the changing nature of the music industry as well as people’s desire for something new and interesting to listen to. At one point, Andy held the #1, #2 and #3 positions for Top-Rated Videos of All Time on the hugely popular website. His videos are still among the highest rated on Youtube. Consequently, Andy has performed to sold out shows in all over the world.

After starting with an interest in electric guitar, Andy turned to the acoustic guitar at the age of 16 and began enjoying and studying the music of Michael Hedges, Don Ross, Billy McLaughlin and Preston Reed. To this day he still sites these four musicians as his primary influences in acoustic music. At the same time, Andy draws inspiration from various other musicians and groups such as; Earth Wind and Fire, The Yellowjackets, Bjork, Imogen Heap, Pantera, Eric Johnson, Peter Gabriel, Dream Theater, Bruce Hornsby, and many others.

While there are countless amazing guitar players in the world, it is Andy’s attention to song structure and melodic content that elevates him above the typical guitarist. It can be observed that Andy likes to try different things with the guitar such as; altered tunings, partial capos, percussive hits, and tapping. But in the hands of Andy these are not mere parlor tricks, they are compositional tools used to create some of the finest crafted music for the steel string acoustic guitar.

Andy was born in Topeka, Kansas and still lives there today. He performs between 100-200 shows annually across the world.

Andy McKee uses these instruments and equipment:

* Andrew White Guitars
* Lance McCollum Guitars
* Ron Spillers Harp Guitars
* Sunrise Pickups
* K&K Sound Pickups
* T.C. Electronics Reverb
* Pendulum Stereo Preamp

Hanging by a Moment

"Hanging by a Moment"
by Lifehouse

Desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started
Chasing after you
I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

Forgetting all I'm lacking
Completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation
You take all of me now...

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

There's nothing else to lose
There's nothing else to find
There's nothing in the world
That can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
There is nothing else

Desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started
Chasing after you....

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know

And I don't know what I'm diving into

Happiness??? What is it?

Last night 11pm. After doing all my chores in the house I decided to lay down on my bed and call it a day. Cause I was so very tired from all the work. :( I wanted to sleep because I have a work today. But, I can't sleep. I don't know the reason why, but I really can't sleep. So, I decide to read a book to help me sleep. Even though I'm not a book fan. But, the book I read was very interesting and got me all night reading. And that book was "Be happy you are Loved" by Robert H. Schuller.

It was the book that my aunt left in our house 8 years ago. I haven't finish reading the yet though. This book had a very interesting stories of trials and errors in life and how to be happy no matter what comes around.

Here is a few contents of the book. A definition of happiness.

Happiness is not....

Hollow Hilarity,
Giddy Gaiety,
Loud Laughter,
Flippant Frivolity,
Shallow Smiles,
Frantic Fun,
or Chemical Cheer!

But Happiness is....

Genuine Joy!
Enjoyable Enthusiasm!
Serene Self-Esteem!
Tender Tears!
Lasting Love!
Affectionate Encouragement!
Healthy Hope!
Affirming Faith!
Perceiving Possibilities!

Yes, Happiness is....

Having a hand to hold!
Finding a heart to heal!
Leaning into tomorrow with love!

2007-08 Smart Fiesta Conference

Wednesday, 20 August 2008
Record crowd of 22,902 witness Kings’ coronation; Menk & Tubid Finals MVP
Rising above tough challenge and extreme adversities, the Barangay Ginebra Kings are back on the throne, once again reigning supreme in the import-reinforced PBA tourney.

Ginebra completed an epic triumph while handicapped by injuries, waylaying Air21, 97-84, Wednesday night to bag the 2007-08 Smart Fiesta Conference before a delirious record-breaking crowd of 22,902 at the Araneta Coliseum.

The walking wounded of coach Jong Uichico survived an acid test, overcoming a 2-3 deficit in the best-of-seven series to reclaim the crown they won in 2004.

It's Ginebra's eighth championship in all but this one should rank among the best, considering the trials and adversities gone through by coach Jong Uichico and the brave Ginebra gang.

"Every championship means a lot whether it's your first, second, third or what. But this one is really special. It's hard to explain how we won the series with all the injuries and tough challenges we faced," said Uichico, winning a second crown in four conferences with the ball club before a crowd never seen since the glory days of Crispa and Toyota in the league’s early years.

"The players deserve all the credit for not giving up. We could have easily given up when we lost Jayjay (Helterbrand). We could have easily given up when Mark Caguioa got injured. And we could have easily given up when the others also got hurt. But the players didn't," Uichico also said.

With practically everybody already playing with aches and pains, Tubid and Menk seized the moment and led the team to the epic win. The two were rewarded by being named Finals co-MVPs.

"Eric (Menk) has just redeemed himself. Tubid, meanwhile, really showed a big fighting heart as he returned to play in the series straight from injury. Bumalik sya noong kailangang-kailangan namin siya. Bumalik sya ng walang practice," said Uichico.

Menk, defying Father Time, and Tubid, sidelined for six weeks by a dislocated ankle, combined for 43 points and 17 rebounds in the winner-take-all contest.

Chris Alexander, the tournament Best Import, was saddled by early fouls but still played a key role, finishing the contest with 19 rebounds, 16 points, four blocks, one assist and one steal.

"It was a gamble on my part to keep him on the game despite five fouls. What I wanted was for him to make it tougher for Steve Thomas to score. Kung locals, madaling-madali para kay Thomas umiskor," said Uichico.

As it turned out, the Kings held the entire Air21 team scoreless in the last
4:27 of play.

"My players have matured. Still, they were not yet ready to face the impact of what the Ginebra crowd brought to the game," said Air21 coach Bo Perasol.

The injury bug hit Ginebra up to the final game of the series with Junthy Valenzuela hurting his left leg in the third quarter.

Valenzuela wasn't able to return but the Kings didn't waver.

Earlier, the Kings pounced on the Express at the posts with Alexander and Menk combining for 18 points as Ginebra took the half at 49-46.

The Ginebra gang could have established full control right in the opening half if not for an atrocious 12-of-23 free-throw shooting against Air21's 4-of-4 perfect clip.

Though badly beaten in rebounding, the Express kept the game close also with a better three-point shooting. Gary David, Arwind Santos, Nino Canaleta, Ranidel De Ocampo and Marvin Cruz combined for six triples with the Kings accounting for only three.

After the Kings built their biggest lead in the first half at 28-21, De Ocampo and
Santos fired a three-pointer each in an 11-4 salvo that tied the count at 32-all midway through the second period.

The two teams engaged in a fiery exchange until Valenzuela beat the buzzer with a floater, giving the Kings a three-point lead at the turn.

Tubid was the lone Ginebra player who did well from the charity lane in the first half, knocking in all of his five charities. He provided Ginebra instant offense coming off the bench, leading the team with 12 points in the first 24 minutes of play.

Santos led all scorers with 13 points in the opening half marred by three technical infractions.

Getting possession after the opening tip, Caguioa quickly brought the ball down court and dished off an assist to Paul Artadi for the first basket of the contest. (NC)

The scores:

Ginebra 97 – Tubid 22, Menk 21, Alexander 16, Caguioa 13, Valenzuela 10, Artadi 8, Crisano 4, Pacana 3, Mamaril 0, Salvacion 0, Reavis 0.

Air21 84 – Thomas 24, Santos 19, David 18, Canaleta 8, Billones 6, De Ocampo 5, Cruz 3, Arboleda 1, Kramer 0, Intal 0, Espinas 0, Sotto 0, Se 0.

Quarterscores: 26-21, 49-46, 72-63, 97-84.

Mr. Deed's Poem

From the Movie Mr. Deeds. Staring Adam Sandler (My Idol) & Winona Ryder.

Hard to breathe, feels like floating,
so full of love, my heart's exploding.

Mouth is dry, hands are shaking,
my heart is yours, for the taking.

Acting weird, not myself, dancing around,
like the Keebler elf.

Finally time, for this poor shlub
o know how it feels to fall in love

I'm Down to FIVE.

If your wondering what I mean in the title of this post.
I'll tell you the reason later. First, let me tell you a brief history of my dirty habit. : )

My dirty, nasty, unhealthy vice or whatever you call it. Started back when I was still in 2nd year in high school. I was 14 years old that time. Influence by friends & my brother. I started a unhealthy vice that is very unhealthy for me and the people around me. And I was having a hard time to stop my self from doing it. This vice became a daily habit for the past 10 years. I tried many times to end it. But, it was so addictive that I can't stop. But now, I'm happy to say that I'm almost free form this unhealthy habit.

This Unhealthy habit that I'm telling you all is actually about my smoking habit. I'm proud to say to you all that I am down to "FIVE" sticks of cigarette a day. Where, before I smoke 1 pack of cigarette or more a day. Some people may say its Impossible. But its true. I'm almost free from this vice of mine.

My goal is that before the year ends. I am a SMOKING Free man. Not just for my own well being but for the people around me as well.

p.s: .Cnxa n sa english ko. jejeje..:D

Dealing with falling in LOVE.

I was browsing in the Internet this morning. And stumbled upon this site that caught my eye with its interesting post. And I'd want to share it to you guys. :D

How to Deal With Falling in Love

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

  1. Love can make you happy, or it can cause you pain. Loving a girl that loves you back is the goal of every relationship.
  2. Decide if the girl really feels the same as you do, before you go all out, and become too emotionally invested.
  3. Build the relationship first. Some girls do not like a person to be too overpowering, or too 'giving'. They might just take advantage of you, and then break up with you. You might also overwhelm someone and that will scare them off and burn out the relationship.
  4. Get to know each other, talk and laugh, and share stories about family, pets, books, and movies you enjoy. It is always better to fall in love with someone who is also your best friend.
  5. Enjoy each other, and date, and if, in time, you fall out of love with her, or she with you, accept it. There is really nothing you can do to change it. Enjoy the moment, and then go on to the future.


  • If you really love that girl, try to get her back. Do not beg, just talk to her, and see if there is a chance of getting together again. If she says no, then accept it and go on.
  • Do not let the circumstances from a past love make you fearful of loving someone new.
  • Truly, there are 2 forms of "love." A strong, long-lasting one and a short, but initially just as strong love. Before you make the decision that you really do love this person, give it some time and a lot of thought.
  • Understand that with love comes a chance of getting hurt, but you will know if it is worth it by how you feel. No one ever forgets their first love, but they also can't wait.


  • Girls/guys might be playing games with you. Some enjoy making a guy love them, so that they can break up with them. Be aware of this. Listen with your ears, and not your heart,and be patient for your true love...
  • If you sense that she is not being truthful, then accept your feelings. Get out and meet someone else. But don't "just" do it. What if you're wrong? Be sure.

First Blood. Brgy. Ginebra Gin KINGS.

Wohho!!! Brgy. Ginebra Gin Kings drew first blood on last night game at Ynares Center fot the 2008 SMART PBA Fiesta Conference Championship Series. Leaded by Mark "The Spark" Caguioa and Chris Alexander "the great". Winning the first game 106- 96.

CHRIS Alexander may have had some early jitters in his first PBA Finals. But those proved to be short-lived.

And the rest of Barangay Ginebra, especially Mark Caguioa, certainly did not have such attack of the nerves as the Kings tripped the Air21 Express, 105-96, Wednesday at the start of the 2008 Smart PBA Fiesta Conference championship series at the jampacked Araneta Coliseum.

Caguioa finished with 22 points, offsetting Alexander's woeful 2-of-8 free throw shooting and leading the predominant favorites of the approximately 17,000 crowd to the blazing start in the best-of-seven series.

It's not that Alexander, normally a 54 percent free throw shooter, let himself be affected by his stints from the stripe. He still wound up with 18 points, a game-high 25 rebounds and five blocked shots.

Five of his seven fourth quarter points came off his three offensive rebounds, each one proving crucial in helping the Kings stymie the Express' comeback bid from as much as a 44-64 third quarter deficit.

“That's what we've been saying about Air21 as a team,” said Ginebra coach Jong Uichico. “We're up by 18 or 16 points and then all of sudden they'll score five straight points. They're really a very streaky team.”

Air21 whittled the deficit to as low as 90-96 on a hook by Steven Thomas, still 2:07 to go.

Then Alexander canned a charity off his offensive rebound and then tipped in a Jayjay Helterbrand miss to make it a nine-point game, only 1:20 to go.

The initial anxious moments over, Uichico finds additional comfort in the win.

“It's very important. It gives the burden on the other team to make the adjustments,” he said. “At least 1-0 ka na. We can also still make adjustments and malaking bagay iyon, when you're up.”

Air21 coach Bo Perasol admitted there are indeed some tweakings needed.

“I think those aspects of the game we knew they were going to beat us with became exactly those,” said Perasol, referring to fastbreak and second chance points, which Ginebra translated into concrete figures of 22-12 and 24-8, respectively.

Perasol also admitted his Express, first-timer in a PBA Finals, failed to overcome their own nerves.

“Nagkaroon ng feeling na eto pala 'yung Finals, kaya parang just going through the motions,” he said. “We had a good start but we failed to sustain it. I think we will be better the next game.”

The fact Alexander outplayed Air21 counterpart Steven Thomas, who had 21 points and 16 rebounds, also gnawed at Perasol. “He has to do a better job,” he stated.

Ranidel de Ocampo's 22 points, to go with seven rebounds, led the Express, who also drew 19 points and 14 rebounds from Arwind Santos but only 14 points from Gary David.

David and Santos chiefly alternated at Caguioa, but with little success.

Air21's defensive rotation was generally thrown into shambles when the likes of Junthy Valenzuela, Helterbrand and Eric Menk each had 12 points, leaving Perasol's charges at a loss on who to concentrate chiefly on.

Menk highlighted his best game in the conference by canning two charities in the first minute of the third period to earn his niche as the 59th member of the league's 5,000-point club and his jumper from the left corner gave Ginebra its biggest lead at 64-44, 6:56 in the period.

Despite its lapses, Air21 still proved to be like a bad dream that won't go away for Uichico.

With De Ocampo leading the way, the Express brought the deficit down to 82-89 before Thomas joined in and helped make it a six-point game.

Ginebra guard Paul Artadi was instrumental in Ginebra's charge from a 15-19 deficit and into a 25-19 lead, but pulled his left hamstring during a fastbreak play in the last five seconds of the first period.

He did not return but Uichico, who already lost Ronald Tubid to a dislocated left ankle in the quarterfinals, prays he will be fit enough for Game 2 Friday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.

“Hopefully, he's healthy enough for the next game. Nakagawa na kami ng paraan ng wala si Ronald, then here comes Paul. Baka we have to find another way na naman,” said the soft-spoken Ginebra chief tactician.

The expected ruggedness in the series first surfaced when Air21's Homer Se gave Rafi Reavis a hard foul at the 10:57 mark of the fourth, exacerbating the Express' plight as the adjudged flagrant foul penalty one only led to two free throws that made it a 83-67 Ginebra lead. (NCo)

The scores:

Ginebra 105 – Caguioa 22, Alexander 18, Valenzuela 12, Helterbrand 12, Menk 12, Reavis 8, Artadi 7, Pacana 6, Mamaril 4, Salvacion 4.

Air21 96 – de Ocampo 22, Thomas 21, Santos 10, David 14, Arboleda 9, Se 6, Billones 4, Canaleta 1, Kramer 0, Cruz 0, Sotto 0.

Quarters: 25-19, 50-39, 79-62, 105-96.

Falling in Love

"I Thought I Must Give Up on Life"

I thought I must give up on life
And turn into a stone;
The desert wind quite suited me:
No heart, no mind--just bone.

I thought it would be dumb to try
To want something again;
Wanting turns to need, and then
Transmogrifies to pain.

I laughed at people still in love
Who trusted someone's word;
To make my happiness depend
On faith seemed quite absurd.

I lay alone and wonder-struck,
Sleepless in my bed,
Still numb, still dumb, still ice, ice cold,
Not knowing I was dead.

And then you came and shone upon
My meadow full of snow,
And saw the flowers only love
Could recognize and grow;

And made me feel so beautiful
I shed my cold, cold skin,
And opened up my heart to you,
And, fearful, let you in.

And now, my dear, I am in love,
With all that I've been through.
I know the worst of all the world,
And I believe in you.

Favorite Song of Czy2.

The Weather Girls

Humidity is rising - Barometer's getting low
According to all sources, the street's the place to go
Cause tonight for the first time
Just about half-past ten
For the first time in history
It's gonna start raining men.

It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! - It's Raining Men! Amen!
I'm gonna go out to run and let myself get
Absolutely soaking wet!
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah!
It's Raining Men! Every Specimen!
Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean

God bless Mother Nature, she's a single woman too
She took off to heaven and she did what she had to do
She taught every angel to rearrange the sky
So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! - It's Raining Men! Amen!
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah!
It's Raining Men! Ame---------nnnn!

I feel stormy weather / Moving in about to begin
Hear the thunder / Don't you lose your head
Rip off the roof and stay in bed

God bless Mother Nature, she's a single woman too
She took off to heaven and she did what she had to do
She taught every angel to rearrange the sky
So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
It's Raining Men! Yeah!

Humidity is rising - Barometer's getting low
According to all sources, the street's the place to go
Cause tonight for the first time
Just about half-past ten
For the first time in history
It's gonna start raining men.

It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! - It's Raining Men! Amen!
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! - It's Raining Men!

Song for the day.

Kimi Ga Suki Da To Sakebi Tai

From the Hit Anime Slam Dunk.

Bright sunlight on my back - started my run in the center of town
my shoulder was hit, like always, by (you)
you were preoccupied - yet there was no reason
your arm was not linked to mine

and before I realized it, you stole my eyes when I looked at you
I'm not letting go (since?) there's no trembling - CRAZY FOR YOU


I want to shout (that) I love you - let us try to change tomorrow
I want to smash this freezing (moment in) time where I'm not with you
I want to shout (that) I love you - so let us walk out bravely
I want to receive and hold onto those warm emotions

at the floor - opposite me at the eventful table
I was lost with you looking casually at me
feels like I'm in love with you yet it's like I'm being toyed with
can't lie no more because of my pounding heart

when it's time this frustrating friendship will change
I want acceptance I want assurance - I TAKE YOU AWAY

I want to shout (that) I love you - let's go and leave everything (behind)
I'll find the words to touch your heart
I want to shout (that) I love you - tonight, I won't let you go home
let's bring the days of gazing to an end

Repeat Chorus

Song for Today.

Reaching Out
by Gary Valenciano

What must I do to make you understand
You mean everything to me
Don't have the strength to say
Give this heart of mine a chance
And maybe then you will see...

I'll do anything, do anything that you tell me
I'll be there, I'll be there if you need me.

Reachin' out to you
Do you feel it too
Lovin' you is all I wanna do
I'm completely sure
I've never felt this way before
When I smile you know that there is something more.

What must I do so I can make you see
The light that shines in my eyes
You brighten up my day
You even help me find my way
I wish you're always by my side

And I can't stop, don't know how to stop thinkin' of you
And I'll do anything, do anything to be near you...

Reachin' out to you
Do you feel it too
Lovin' you is all I wanna do
I'm completely sure
I've never felt this way before
Deep inside you know that there is something more.

Deep inside you know that there is something more.

A Short Love Story and A Long Definition of Love.

A Prose of Love

One day a boy and girl were walking on the beach. And as they walked they were holding hands, actually clasping hands. They were just leisurely walking not talking to each other but their bodies were moving in perfect rhythm, their steps in single cadence and their hands swayed in harmony, their eyes and minds in a dreamland. They continued walking on the seemingly endless stretch of sands unmindful of the heat of the sun and the pounding surging tides and the shouts and the laughter and the chatters of the crowds and the bays of the beasts and the chirps of the birds and the whatever and the whichever around and along the beach. they continued walking without talking; they were dreaming the day.

As the evening shadows came they stopped walking and sat on the sand and started to chat. Then the boy looked up and started counting, one, two, three . . . the girl interrupted him and asked him, “What are you doing?”

Boy: I’m counting the stars
Girl: Why?
Boy: That’s how many times I love you!
Girl: You cannot count all the stars!
Boy: Right, I love you in a countless ways and if it takes me forever to count the stars, forever my love for you will be!

The girl squeezed the hand of the boy, then scooped a handful of sands and started counting, “Five, ten, fifteen . . .” The boy interrupted her and asked “What are you doing?”

Girl: I’m counting the sands! And as many sands are there in the whole world that’s how far and how long I will love you!
Boy: It will take more than a life time to even count a portion of the sands in this beach alone.
Girl: Even death will not stop me counting my love for you!

The boy hugged the girl tightly. They looked at each other and they were both amazed at their vows of perfect love. The boy continued counting the stars; the girl went on counting the sands. They fell asleep.

They were dreaming the same dreams together. They were floating in the air, suspended in space somewhere between the stars and the sands. Holding hands they flew around leisurely alternately looking at the stars and the sands. Then they stopped and sat in the cushion of the cloud and started talking:

The Philosophy of Love

Girl: You know that my parents and relatives and even my close friends are against our love relationship. But that would not hinder me from loving you. Only death can make me separate from yoo.

Boy: Don’t say that. Our love will survive all obstacles. Even death cannot take you away from me.

Girl: My parents are planning to take me away to America where they hope to make me forget you amidst the million faces and thousands of places and sandy beaches and towering buildings that seem to reach to the stars. And when the inevitable day comes, I would rather die, kill myself. Death and Hell would be a better choice for me than life in this world separated from you. And when I’m in Hell, I would look for a scorching beach and count the blistering sands. That would keep me busy and forget the pains of the burning fire around.

Boy: If you commit suicide and go to Hell, I would make sure that I will go to Heaven. And when I’m there I will continue counting the stars until I find a shooting star, catch it and ride it down to snatch you from Hell and then we will soar like an eagle back to Heaven.

Girl: But that’s impossible! You cannot go down to Hell. You cannot leave it once your there and we will both be scorched perpetually. No, better for you to be up there and let me just suffer alone. After all it would be my own doing that I would be down there. No. I cannot allow that.

Boy: Why not? You said that you rather kill yourself than live but apart from me. What about me? Can’t I choose to be with you wherever you are, even in Hell! That’s unfair! You don’t have the monopoly of the philosophy of love. If you don’t like this option, and don’t like me to suffer with you then there is another alternative. Take the advice of your parents and go to America. We are separated but at least I’m happy you’re not suffering in Hell.

Girl: You don’t understand! I said I cannot live here on earth separated from you. I’d rather kill myself and in Hell than live here away from you. Going away, leaving you is not an option to me, it’s not my choice; it’s their choice not mine. There’s a big difference between the two. I’d rather suffer out of my own choice than suffer by the choice of others. I have my own life to live. It’s a gift to me by God. Nobody can take away that gift from me.

Boy: Okay, I get your point. But try also to understand mine. You love me, I love you. We have a common factor, love. So why worry my being with you even in Hell. Love cannot exist alone. Love needs love, and that’s us. How can there be love if we are separated as you try to philosophize earlier. There is no love between us unless we are together. See we have the same philosophy of love. You cannot bear to live if we are separated, but you rather stay in Hell and I in Heaven. We are separated and this time perpetually. So where is love in your choice? As I said you don’t have the monopoly of choice. If your choice is different from mine how can there be love? See the point?

Girl: But my love is for you not for me! That’s why I sound inconsistent even to the point of being misunderstood with my stupid philosophy. Maybe I’m really stupid, stupidly in love. Anyway, history is replete with stupid lovers - - - classic examples are Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah, Samson and Delilah, David and Bathsheba, Anthony and Cleopatra - - - well I think the world exists because of stupid lovers! Without them where would we be?

Boy: Okay, okay. But my love is for both of us, that’s why I’m persistent even at the expense of being branded a romantic idealist - - - Odysseus and Penelope, Cinderella and Prince Charming, Romeo and Juliet, the Beauty and the Beast and a host of unheralded love fantasies - - - because of them the world does not only exist but becomes a garden of hope that nurtures mustard seeds of faith, and faith makes the impossible, possible!

Girl: Alright, I give up, you win. I will wait for you in Hell. But there’s just one more question that’s bothering me. How do we fly out of Hell?

Boy: Simple! We will soar on eagle’s wings. You see how the eagles roam the air? They don’t fly like other birds. They ride the air, they soar, they glide. They use the natural pneumatic highways of hot and cold lanes. Like the eagle we will use the hot lane and that’s not a problem. Hell is full of hot air and so there is no other way except up and since the temperature is so high that in less than a split second we’re out of Hell that nobody would even notice you missing nor even remember you were there, as if you were not in Hell at all. Then we will be in deep space gliding and this time we will hitch a ride in Elijah’s chariot on our way to the kingdom of Heaven never to be separated again.

Girl: Wonderful! One last question. How can you come to Hell without being noticed by Satan and His cohorts?

Boy: Double simple!! Because my love for you is true and I come from the Kingdom of light I am shielded by the principal elements of eternity - love, truth and light. First, these three do not and can never exist in Hell, therefore I am invisible to Satan. Second, granting that Satan would espy me and try to use super-dark signature eyeglasses, he cannot allow me to linger because the other two elements - love and truth - would soon neutralize all the evils in Hell, thus it would be preferable to let me go as fast as possible. Third, remember that you committed suicide because of love and that love is also true love except that it was wrongly expressed and as the overused saying goes, “The means does not justify the end.” So you still have the two elements of eternal life present, an overwhelming majority. But the third element is not totally dead; you still have that flicker of hope; don’t let that very faint light burn out by default. Find that beach in Hell and continue to count the grains of sand and your mustard seed of faith alive in your heart. Satan knows that if you stay long in Hell you will infect the others and the deadly virus of hope and faith and love will spread out like wildfire and sooner or later all His allies and captive souls will die and His domain will be lost. So he would pretend not to see me and would rather let us go immediately.

Girl: Why would he pretend and not just let us go?

Boy: Because that’s his nature. He cannot accept the truth. Satan being the master of deceit has to deceive himself. And as a wily compromiser, He would rather lose one soul than lose the whole kingdom.

Girl: One final little question. So you get me out of Hell, how do you know that the gate of Heaven will be opened for me?

Boy: Triple simple!!! God is love and He cannot deny Himself. Besides, it’s not God that sent you to Hell; Satan made you do it just as he deceived Eve. Jesus is the good Shepherd; He would rather leave the ninety nine to find and save one lost sheep. The Holy Spirit, the Advocate will bear witness to the truth.

The dream suddenly ended. Morning came. They were nowhere in the beach.

The Mystery of True Love

They woke and rose up from different beds, in different rooms, at far apart buildings. They both prepared to go the offices and ran toward the bus stop coming from different directions. Suddenly their eyes met and the glow of love and feeling of having known each other enveloped them. Without uttering a single word, they clasped their hands and the boy helped the girl board the bus. They sat together on a two-seated row still holding hands in silence. They got off on the same bus stop but parted ways in opposite directions for their offices.

After office hours, the boy hurried to the bus stop but the girl was not around. The boy felt uneasy and stretched his neck looking in the direction where she walked away in the morning. Just as the bus was approaching, he saw her running towards the bus stop. He extended his hand to take her up the bus and again they traveled silently holding hands and when they got down, before they parted they faced each other holding both their hands together, their eyes full of love and joy.

Girl: Okay, I’m convinced. See you in Hell.

Boy: Sure! Wait for me, not even Hell can stop me spring you up to Heaven.

They both laughed and before they parted, said together in unison:

Boy & Girl: Let’s go home and continue our dreams.

Are you Bright or Smart?

--"Bright" people are less romantic. But they easily fall in love.

--"Smart people" are more romantic. But they are choosy before falling in love.

Now, are you "Bright" or "Smart"? :D

My Tarot Card is "The Devil"

What a coincidence. :D My friends call me "The Devil". Cause I always make fun of them and do things that pisses them off sometimes.

You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession

The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

In love

Yes my friends. The hopeless romantic guy is "again" in love with a wonderful woman. At first, I thought it was just infatuation. But, after awhile I realize I was really in love again. :D Cause some of the symptoms of being in love is starting to surface.

I know its kinda Korny, but its' true. What can I say? She's one of a kind. A one in a million.

Is What I'm Feeling Infatuation or Love?

There are some feelings we have when infatuated that we don’t have when we’re feeling love. Some of the “symptoms” of infatuation are; feelings of panic, uncertainty, overpowering lust, feverish excitement, impatience, and/or jealously.

When infatuated, we are thrilled, but not happy, wanting to trust, yet suspicious. There are lingering, nagging doubts about our “partner in infatuation” and their love for us. We’re miserable when they’re away, almost like we’re not complete unless we’re with them. It’s a rush and it’s intense. It’s difficult to concentrate. And most infatuation relationships have a high degree of sexual charge around them. Somehow being with them is not complete unless in ends in some type of sexual encounter.

Do any of these “symptoms” resemble feelings of love? Hardly. So why do we become infatuated? Where does it come from? Perhaps it’s biological.

When infatuated we experience a surge of dopamine that rushes through the brain causing us to feel good. Norepinephrine flows through the brain stimulating production of adrenaline (pounding heart). Phenylethalimine (found in chocolate) creates a feeling of bliss. Irrational romantic sentiments may be caused by oxytocin, a primary sexual arousal hormone that signals orgasm and feelings of emotional attachment. Together these chemicals sometimes override the brain activity that governs logic.

The body can build up tolerances to these chemicals so it takes more of the substance to get that special feeling of infatuation. People who jump from relationship to relationship may be craving the intoxicating effects of these substances and may be “infatuation junkies”.

When the chemical flood dries up, the relationship either moves into a loving romantic one or there is disillusionment, and the relationship ends.

GO Brgy Ginebra!!!!

Kings Sweep Barako With Ot Victory

Musong R. Castillo, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Monday, 28-Jul-2008

MANILA, Philippines—Facing what was supposed to be a dominated foe in a match that took a Game 7 atmosphere, Barangay Ginebra willed itself to come back from the brink of defeat and sweeten its sweep of Red Bull.

The Gin Kings rallied from six points down in the final 2:37 of regulation before making their first four shots in overtime to finally snuff the fight out of the Barako, 101-97, and reach the Smart PBA Fiesta Cup title series before close to 12,000 screaming souls at the Big Dome.

Mark Caguioa tossed in 33 markers and Chris Alexander had 13 points, 19 rebounds and a PBA career-high seven blocks in the epic contest Red Bull refused to surrender without a fight.

In fact, the Barako worked so hard to avert being the footnote in a record their coach last pulled off 16 years ago, leading 90-84 after a Cyrus Baguio basket with 2:37 left in regulation.

But the Kings came up with their vaunted finishing kick that has earned them to their adoring throng to forge the extra five minutes at 90-all.

"The outcome of the series (4-0) did not mean that it was easy for us," coach Jong Uichico, who will see action in his second title series with this team, said.

The sweep was the first such debacle for Yeng Guiao in a best-of-seven series since 1992 when he piloted Tony Harris and the Swift Mighty Meaties to a whitewash of the 7-Up Uncolas.

In the second game, Amal McCaskill scored on a turnaround jumper with 1.4 seconds remaining as Magnolia forged a 104-102 victory over Air21 to level their semifinal series at two games each.

Jay-Jay Helterbrand failed to give the Kings the win outright when he flubbed a running jumper inside the keyhole at the buzzer. But Junthy Valenzuela, Rafi Reavis, Caguioa and Paul Artadi combined to lift the Kings ahead to stay, 99-94 with 2:49 to play.

A Love Letter

"If You Only Knew"

If only you knew, how my heart overflows with love for you. If only you could see the way you fill my hopes and dreams. You're the owner of my heart, the ruler supreme. Even in the dark of night, I've only to think about you to feel your loving light and from this world I drift feeling as if I'll never touch the ground again...If only you knew.

If only you could guess how I hear your voice when others speak; for you hold the key to my happiness, and it's always you my soul seeks. If only you could feel, how your very presence has the power to heal, all the wounds inside me. You've made me abandon the pain of yesterday, and you've shown me that the past can no longer stand in the way of what I hope to achieve...If only you knew.

If only you could realize the way you've shown me that it's better to give than to take, and whatever I do, I do for your sake. I'm willing to give you my all and expect nothing in return. But, oh how I yearn for you...if only you knew.

Sexist Song.

Yesterday, my officemate sent me this video on Youtube.com which was very funny & at the same time very sexist. And I thought I share it with you all.

The Cure For WORK

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) just issued a medical alert about a highly contagious and potentially dangerous virus that can be transmitted orally, by hand, or even electronically. It is called Weary Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).

If you get WORK from your boss, or a colleague, or anyone else, DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus can wipe out your entire personal life!

If you come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises. Take two good friends to the nearest supermarket and purchase one or both of the two known antidotes: Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) or Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

Share this alert with your circle of friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

The King of Wishful Thinking

One of my favorite band today. The "New Found Glory". A New Found Glory formed in mid-1997 in Coral Springs, Florida. Chad Gilbert, former singer of hardcore punk outfit Shai Hulud became the guitarist, recruiting Jordan Pundik as a singer, Ian Grushka on bass, Steve Klein on guitar and Joe Moreno on drums.

The band’s first release was 1997’s It’s All About the Girls EP on Fiddler Records. Soon after the recording of the EP, Moreno was replaced by current drummer Cyrus Bolooki and the band was picked up by Eulogy Records. They released their debut full-length Nothing Gold Can Stay; the album’s release coupled with a rigorous touring schedule soon earned the band a significant following.

2000 - 2006

Independent label Drive-Thru Records took notice of the band’s growing fanbase and signed them to a deal. In 2000, NFG released an EP of cover songs entitled ‘’From the Screen to Your Stereo’’ in 2000. Drive-Thru’s relationship with MCA Records ensured that the smaller label’s more popular bands would be picked up by the major; subsequently, their self-titled record was released by MCA. Their third studio album, ‘’Sticks and Stones’’, was released in 2002, coinciding with an appearance on the Vans Warped Tour [2].

After a period of relative quiet and a stint on the Honda Civic Tour with Good Charlotte, New Found Glory released ‘’Catalyst’’ in May of 2004. It debuted at number three on the Billboard album chart, selling 146,000 copies in its first week [3] [4].

The heavier sound of the record, according to Gilbert, was due to the comparisons magazines and other media outlets would make between NFG and other bands: “When Sticks and Stones came out and we were doing that Honda Civic Tour, we were getting compared to bands like Simple Plan and Good Charlotte and we were angry with that […] At that point, we were getting compared to more pop bands and we aren’t a pop band.” [1]

After the release and tour in support of Catalyst, the band took an extended break before beginning preproduction for another album in 2005. On June 14, 2006, Gilbert announced to MTV.com that their fifth album would be titled Coming Home and that it was scheduled to be released on September 19, 2006. He also stated that first single, "It's Not Your Fault" would be released sometime in July 2006.[5]

2007 - Present

From the Screen to Your Stereo Part II, the band's follow up to From the Screen to Your Stereo, was released on September 18, 2007. Unlike the earlier EP, Part II is a full-length album, containing 11 songs plus one bonus track for the Japanese edition and iTunes. The first single from the album was "Kiss Me"[2] and the video can be viewed on MySpaceTV.

The band toured the UK and Ireland (headline show) in early 2008 with Paramore, Kids In Glass Houses and Conditions.

On March 18, 2008, a compilation named Hits was released. Two previously unreleased songs, "Situations" (which had been accessible through their myspace site and their performance at Warped Tour before being released on the CD) and "Constant Static" are also featured on the album.

In April 2008 a compilation from the "Punk Goes..." series, called Punk Goes Crunk, was released, and features New Found Glory covering "Tennessee", originally by Arrested Development. New Found Glory already had another cover song, "Heaven", released on Punk Goes Metal.

The band released, in April 29th, an EP with 6 tracks on Bridge 9 Records containing both new material and covers of classic hardcore punk songs. The EP, entitled Tip of the Iceberg, is currently being sold on CD, 7" and digitally, through the Internet. The CD also comes with an extra disc of the band International Superheroes of Hardcore, named Takin' It Ova!. ISHC, a "side project" of all members of the band, features Gilbert on vocals and Pundik on guitar. ISHC plays hardcore punk in the vein of bands such as Mental, Outbreak & Righteous Jams. The band also recorded an internet-only music video for "Dig My Own Grave" with director Joseph Pattisall.[3]

New Found Glory has announced a UK tour to take place in November. Special guests have been announced as Set Your Goals, Four Year Strong and Crime In Stereo.
