The birth of Urbandub in the city under the southern lights has been a big influence. The first time I heard their song in the radio, I hoped that they would come to Manila so that I could watch them live and buy their album. Continue reading “Happy 10th year Anniversary to Urbandub”
The Eraserheads Final Set
This is the concert that we’ve waited for. Me and Sha ditched our Cagayan de Oro trip just to be able to watch this concert. The best part would be when Ely lit up a paper and put it on the Sticker Happy piano and poured lighter fluid over it. Continue reading “Best Live Acts I’ve Seen in 2009”
In the year 2009, a lot of albums by local artists were released. My favorite albums that I have already are: Peryodiko, and Travel Advisory (by Archipelago).

Last Saturday, we had a tree planting activity with Sha’s company and with Haribon Foundation for their project Road to 2020. It is actually interesting to learn that it is recommended not to use foreign tree species in reforestation because it won’t bring us the ecological benefits that we need. Continue reading “Tree Planting is not easy”
A lot of people have been displaced by Ondoy. A lot of people had no food to eat while struggling to survive at the height of Ondoy. Although there are some who have received relief goods already, there are still a lot of areas that haven’t received relief goods. I admire United Nations for their World Food Programme initiative.

For me, everyday should be a day full of gratitude despite of the problems we encounter. Saying of thanks have evolved through out the years, from “Thank You” to a shorter “Thanks” to a much shorter “TY”, to the text-speak “Tnx”, to the LOL-cat speak inspired “Thx” and the list goes on.
And for us to be reminded that it is not only on the “National Thank You Day” that we should say thanks, Toblerone started the “National Thank You Day”, a day that should be full of sweetness like taking a bite of that luscious chocolate. Continue reading “National Thank You Day Photo Contest Brought To You By Toblerone”

The tarps were shown in the photo above where used in the rally last Wednesday at Ayala Ave. Continue reading “Rocked’s No To Con-Ass Silent Protest and the Rally at Ayala Ave.”
