The electric current is safe for humans by the way so even if its "swithed" on and you have your hands on the net you're safe =)
Barbaric or extremely therapeutic? Well whatever you think of it Pau seems to be enjoying it a lot. Suspend all judgement until you try it out for yourself hehe

Speaking of tyra, I was in the zoo a couple of weekends back and for some reason, I had the feeling one of the attractions was a top model fan. Check out this Orangutan voguing it for the audience. Now that's fierce =p

Block off your calendars for Hangad: Noon at Ngayon, a 10th anniversary concert for Hangad's first album titled "Hangad". The show will feature inspirational and liturgical standards from Hangad's repertoire -- some in their original form, others with fresh new arrangements -- such as Panunumpa, Pananatili, and Pag-Ibig Ko.
Moreover, the show features the launch of a commemorative 5-track CD, also titled Hangad: Noon at Ngayon, featuring new arrangements of well-loved songs mostly from Hangad's first album, plus the first-time release of the upbeat "Walang Ibang Hangad."

Mass preceeds the concert at 530 PM. Special guest choirs: Ateneo College Ministry Group Choir, Coro Degli Angeli and The Symphony.

Bonus. I couldn't resist haha:
Here in The Philippines they have a word,
A great way to start of each day....
When you want to say "Welcome", "We wish you the best"...
Just smile up a smile as you say, oh, oh, Mabuhay!
"You're smilin" Mabuhay "You're stylin"
It's a great salutation Mabuhay!
Mabuhay! "Persuasion", Hello, "You are delicious"
It's a one word flirtation, Mabuhay!
Won't you join us and try out this Philippine way,
To say "Welcome, we're glad that you came"
It's a neat little greeting to start up each day,
Just smile up a smile and exclaim, oh, oh,
Mabuhay!, "Hello there" Mabuhay! "Let's go there"
Mabuhay!, "God bless you" Mabuhay!
Mabuhay you're singin'
Mabuhay we're swingin'
May you have a wonderful day-----
Well there's one thing about it you can't live with out!
Don't doubt it just shout it, Mabuhay!
I Love the World
by Discovery Channe
l It never gets old, huh?
It kinda makes you want to...
Break into song?
I love the mountains,
I love the clear blue skies
I love big bridges
I love when great whites fly
I love the whole world
And all its sights and sounds
Boom-de-yadda, boom-de-yadda (twice)
I love the oceans
I love real dirty things
I love to go fast
I love Egyptian kings
I love the whole world
And all its craziness
Boom-de-yadda, boom-de-yadda (twice)
I love tornadoes
I love arachnids
I love hot magma
I love the giant squids
I love the whole world
It's such a brilliant place
Boom-de-yadda, boom-de-yadda (repeating until fade)
Now I was wondering why the "Boom-de-yadda" chorus sounded soooo familiar. I kept thinking and thinking and...aha!

Please send me your mailing addreses (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can personally send you a copy of the CD before we sell it commercially. Prizes will be mailed by end of August (basses will be recording our last song today! Yey!). To those who (still) did not make the cut, I'll have one more round for you next Tuesday (August 12) so watch out for it.
The 1st Hangad tape(tape! how high tech!) was launched in 1998 at the Ateneo High School Chapel. This year, Hangad will be using the same venue for its 10th anniversary concert/CD launch. No poster out yet but concert dates will be on August 30, 31 and Sept 7. Most likely at 730pm with tickets at P150. We will be having guest choirs per night (which reminds me, we need one more guest choir each for Aug 30 and 31. Any volunteers?) so that's something to look forward to as well.
Ending this post with one of the videos from the launch. Note the haircuts and styling hehe Of the people in the video, only 3 of us remain active to this day. Can you tell who? (walang prize to. trivia lang =p)

making sure we know how to play the game.
It's nice to know such a place exists even with all the Wiis, PS3s, PSPs and X-Boxes around. Although Im still pretty much for electronic games, nothing beats good old fashion boardgame fun with friends to pass the time.
