Dimensione Warehouse Sale!

If you happen to be looking for accent pieces for your room but don't want to spend a ridiculous amount, check out the Dimensione warehouse sale at Bonifacio High Street. Design does come cheap sometimes when you know where to look for it =p Got ourselves a couple of Umbra photo albums for less than P2000 and almost bought a couple of adjustable table lamps for the bedroom :)

I've posted the flyer but if you find the fonts too small here are the details:

Aug 14 - Sept 20, 2009
3F Dimensione Global City
sun-thurs 11am to 10pm
fri-sat 11am to 11pm

Now if only these Umbra clocks would go on sale. Been lusting over them for a long time now.

Hangad basses getting ready for the big October show

You know Hangad's getting serious in preparing for a show when the voices split up and do sectionals. Here's me with the basses last night (GO BASSES! =p)

No details yet on the venue, time and ticket prices but this will definitely be on OCTOBER 3 & 4. I'll post the details when available. Hope you guys can watch. Haven't learned this many new songs for a concert in years!

Meet the Nokia Booklet

Wonder how this compares to current netbooks and subnotebooks in the market. Design looks very sleek though and the advertising is appealing. My fear is that its going to be like most new Nokia first releases - bugs fatale with an improved follow-up model released in a couple of months (though that doesn't seem to be the case though for N86, its first 8mp phone). I think I'll wait for the early adaptors and tech critics to hand in their reviews first before considering a Nokia-branded laptop.

Vote for Fedde Le Grand

My New Travel Blog

I've finally consolidated all my travel entries into one blog!!!! Yes, after months of procrastinating and going against the "rules of bogging" (blog about one thing and stick to it), I finally found time to dedicate one blog to everything about TRAVEL.

Right now the entries are from the ones labeled "travel" in A Bear's Jampacked Life but I will be adding new entries soon. Great way to look at old travel pictures and reminisce about the good times. Check it out and bookmark if you like =D

You can just fly away

The perfect soundtrack to take you away to wherever. Just hit play and close your eyes...

When you feelin' down
When you feel you need to get away
You can just fly away

When you feelin' low
When you feel You need to get away
You can just fly away

I feel the world
Is gonna insane
If you feel the sun
You can just fly away

Your Heart Today

I had forgotten how moving this song was until I watched Dulce sing it again during Cory Aquino's funeral mass. YOUR HEART TODAY was written by Fr. Manoling Francisco, S.J. for Ninoy and Cory Aquino. Here's a recording by the Ateneo Chambre Singers featuring Dulce. The coda says it all. This is why we do what we do.

Your Heart Today

Where there is fear I can allay
Where there is pain I can heal
Where there are wounds I can bind
And hunger I can fill

Lord, grant me courage
Lord, grant me strength
Grant me compassion
That I may be Your heart today

Where there is hate I can confront
Where there are yokes I can release
Where there are captives I can free
And anger I can appease (REFRAIN)

When comes the day I dread
To see our broken world
Compel me from my cell grown cold
That Your people I may behold

Where there is fear I can allay
Where there is pain I can heal
Where there are wounds I can bind
And hunger I can fill (REFRAIN)

And when I've done all that I could
Yet there are hearts I cannot move
Lord, give me hope
That I may be Your heart today

Prayer for a Happy Death by Cory Aquino

As the Philippines mourns for Cory Aquino today, I thought it'd be fiiting to share a prayer Cory wrote and published titled "Prayer for a Happy Death". Heard this from Kenneth during Hangad practice last night and was deeply moved by it.


Almighty God, most merciful Father

You alone know the time
You alone know the hour
You alone know the moment
When I shall breathe my last.

So, remind me each day,
most loving Father
To be the best that I can be.
To be humble, to be kind,
To be patient, to be true.
To embrace what is good,
To reject what is evil,
To adore only You.

When the final moment does come
Let not my loved ones grieve for long.
Let them comfort each other
And let them know
how much happiness
They brought into my life.
Let them pray for me,
As I will continue to pray for them,
Hoping that they will always pray
for each other.

Let them know that they made possible
Whatever good I offered to our world.
And let them realize that our separation
Is just for a short while
As we prepare for our reunion in eternity.

Our Father in heaven,
You alone are my hope.
You alone are my salvation.
Thank you for your unconditional love, Amen.
