gabe bondoc: One Touch

You probably know right now that I’m a huge fan of this guy.  Gabe Bondoc.  It all started from Enzo’s tweet about his (gabe) version of Take A Bow, and from there, I just discovered how amazing he is.

He is not just a typical youtube star who covers other artists’ songs… he is way talented than that.  He creates his own music.  He writes well, plays the guitar like no other (medyo OA), and he sings soooo freakin good.

Anyhoo.. so much with the intro..  Just wanna share you guys his original song.. I really, really love this song. Hope you’ll like it too.  Here’s One Touch.

One touch and I’m hooked and I am drowning
One look and I’m lost inside your eyes
Excuse me, I don’t mean to be staring
But I’ve forgotten all my lines

I was gonna say, “Hey, you’re looking fine today
Not that I’ve only noticed now.”
I was gonna say, “Hey, you think there is a way
That I could get you to stay for a while.”
For a little while…

I’m trying articulate and failing
My words just aren’t cooperating
“Breathe deeply,” I’m trying to tell myself, but
My heart won’t slow ’cause of you

I was gonna say, “Hey, you’re looking fine today
Not that I’ve only noticed now.”
I was gonna say, “Hey, you think there is a way
That I could get you to stay.”

I tried it once or twice, not looking in your eyes
But that’s impossible, baby
This feeling’s so brand new, I wanna speak to you, but
I was never good at impromptu

I was gonna say, “Hey, you’re looking fine today
Not that I’ve only noticed now.”
I was gonna say, “Hey, you think there is a way
That I could, that I could, that I could…”

I was gonna say, “Hey, you’re looking fine today
Not that I’ve only noticed now.”
I was gonna say, “Hey, you think there is a way
That I could, that I could, that I could get you to stay.”
Hey, hey
Not that I’ve only noticed now

I was gonna say, “Hey, you think there is a way
That I could get, that I could, that I could…”
I was gonna say, “Hey, you’re looking fine today
Not that I’ve only noticed now.”

I was gonna say, “Hey, you think there is a way
That I could get you to stay for a while.”


great week (part 2)

yesssss may part 2!

And it seems like things are getting better and better… but.. oh well, let me just quickly glance at my awesome week with this post.

Karate Kiddos

Karate Kid

I watched this movie with my good friends, Edzcel and Ron.  At first, we really can’t decide what to watch that day.  Either Toy Story 3 or Karate Kid.  Pero mapilit si Ron.  He wants to watch TS3 in 3D, but there’s no available time that day.  So we end up watching this movie, at Podium Cinema.  That was my first time to watch in that movie house, and I must say, the ambiance is really impressive… like it’s so sashaaal… there were only few seats, and the screen and perfectly placed in front of you.

I’m happy that we watched this movie.  It was really good.  Lot of funny moments, esp the mom.  She’s hilarious.  The drama and kilig factors are good, and the fight scenes are awesome.  I love the soundtrack, too.  Made me fall in love again with John Mayer’s Say.  And that song of K’Naan feat. Adam Levine.. i like it.

Corny Corner Prince

my request was featured again on Mixed Tape’s Corny Corner.  It was an old track from Richard Reynoso, Hindi Ko Kaya.  Christi said that she fell in love with the singer during that time, but agrees that the song is really corny. 😀

So i received a lot of reaction from my rx friends regarding my CC requests.  Corny it is! And I really like it when Triflernomore tweeted that I’m the “Corny Corner Prince“, as Kuya Joe is the King.  Whoa.  It’s definitely an honor for me hehe… I just can’t remember kung ilang requests na ko sa CC.  I just really enjoying requesting these songs… cringe fest talaga, but we love it. 😀

Knight and Day Preem

Knight and Day

my 2nd movie for this week, but this time, it’s for free.  I was still undecided to whom I’ll give my extra tix.  I was supposed to give it to my officemate, but he needs two tickets.  So I decided to throw a contest over twitter, and Dru texted me first!

I logged out early that day.  I actually don’t know the exact venue.  Greenbelt 3.  It will be my first time, yet again.  Good thing Perk and Stephen were still at Jollibee, Glorietta… they saved me from being lost.

It was a lucky day, actually.  I won a Kaspersky Anti virus installer during the raffle.  And the movie is awesome.  Without me, With me.  It was fun!

Leadership & Badminton

I spent my whole friday at Sendai Conf Room, where our Leadership Seminar Training was held.  Boss Manny is a good speaker, ang daming kwento.. so I didn’t find the whole seminar that boring.. it was fun!  And the food is awesome, hehe.. that’s important, of course.  I’m just not sure right now if I’m ready… to be a leader.  But I must be.  That’s the only path I should take.

Then after that day, I went to Greenhills to play badminton with my rushers friends… feeling ko pagaling ako ng pagaling. Hahahaha! And we met jedi master and we played with him… we can tell na naghohold-back pa sya kasi nga newbies lang kami.. he’s definitely a pro in this game! 🙂

EB, New Friends, Food Trip

from cherry

Last saturday of the month.  EB again with the rushers!  And I didn’t realize until acer texted the duo that this was actually the 2nd Anniversary of Rusher’s Monthly EB!! whoa.. yeah, it has been that long that we’ve been meeting new people, make friends with them, losing some, gaining more.  It’s been 2 years!! *sniff sniff*

I was a little for this EB, but I’m glad that there were new (and old faces) when I arrived at the booth.  Saw kuya acer, kuya dhey, and kuya rc again.  Plus merski and reichen.  And there are new faces like catleya, yazrei, and asnallar’s friends.  We didn’t stay long and we went to SM megamall to have our lunch.  This time, we went to Kenny Rogers!! level up ng konti!

then after that, we went to Secret Recipe… para kumain ulit! 😀 On our way there, we met another fellow rusher, Ninya Baler.  I knew her as JDV’s friend.  Glad to finally meet her.  So ayun nga, we went to Secret Recipe… sinamahan ang Wedding Wizards on their business meeting.  I ordered this yummy brownies, and it tastes heaven!

Toy Story 3… *sobs*

Toy Story 3

Then after our food trip, we (me, ron, rina, selwyn, paul and ninya) watched Toy Story 3.  I heard that a lot of the people are loving this third installment of Toy Story… but I didn’t expect a lot.

We were just in time… and my oh my.. the movie is sooo freakin awesome.  Pixar FTW.  It will teach you a lot of things… Appreciation, Letting Go, and… ummm.. ok na yun, marami na yang 2. :))  This is probably one of the best movies this year… and for goodnesssake, it made me cry 3 times!!!!


That was my great week… but I have this feeling that there might be a bad news next week… yeah, I’m being a pessimist right now. Sigh.  But I’ll still try to hope for the best… 🙂


Post Father’s day post

June 20 2010

A special day for all the fathers…

I woke up early that day.  I went down and saw my dad preparing food for lunch.  My two brothers lying down the sala watching a movie (cinema one syempre).  Lumapit ako sa dad ko and greeted him ‘Happy Father’s Day’… and he responded with a nod.  I expected that reaction, coz my father is really like that.  Quiet, Reserved, A man of few words.

Then unexpectedly, I started this whole day with a Bang!! Literally!!.. nabagsak ko kasi yung termos.. ayun… basag! 😀

We don’t know what we’ll do for this special day.. I asked my mom that I’ll buy a cake, but she said na wag na lang.  Then that mid morning, my dad is already out drinking with his friends… yeah, that early… and we’re used to it.

But this is his day… and even if we didn’t give him a gift, I think he’s happy that day.  After so many months, his kumpare finally talked to him, and they’re now in good terms again.

I’m still hoping that my father will change.  Stop the smoking and the drinking.. before it’s too late.

Golden Blog 5th Year Anniversary

June 20 2005.  That was the date when I tried Friendster Blog.  Yup, friendster pa nun.  And I really have no idea kung ano gagawin ko sa blog ko.

My first post was about Chico and Delamar.  I’m a big fan of the duo na that time… and i wrote about how i love the duo and the show.  Then after that post.. wala na!  I checked my old posts and found out na January 2006 na pala yung 2nd post ko… ganun katagal! my second post naman is about the things na ikinaguguilty ko sa buhay… then after that tuloy-tuloy na..

Then I transferred here in wordpress.. I can’t remember right now who influenced me to go here… but I think I should thank Dru. Yeah.. I think he’s the one who instructed us kung pano ilipat yung friendster blog dito sa wordpress.. so thank you so much dru!

2009 is probably my most active year… sobrang dami kong post.  That was the time kasi na I have my own PC and my own internet sa bahay.. so lahat ng maisipang iblog.. go, blog agad!

Then, I met a lot of new people thru my blog… sa simpleng pagpopost lang ng comments regularly, napalapit na ako sa kanila… even if i haven’t met them, feeling ko we know each other na… So holler to Doc Gelo, Anne, and Engr. Moks.. hopefully mameet ko kayo someday… and of course, gotta thank the rest of my readers.. rusher friends, my relatives (kaya kelangan maingat sa posts), and some of my officemates! Really appreciate your effort of visiting my page.

Hmmm.. so, maybe i’ll just check out the stat of my blog right now.

My busiest day is May 21, 2009, where I received a 5,063 views! and I can tell that the reason I have that huge hit is because that was the finale week of American Idol… and because of my AI posts, a lot of people were directed to my blog. 😀

Ok.. that’s about it.  I never thought na I will enjoy the blogosphere this much.  It’s really fun writing stuff.. kahit mali mali.. go.. and it is fun to entertain people.. so I promise to be more entertaining this year! Cheers my avid readers!! stay avid. LOL


great week!

After a very depressing week… things eventually improved for me.  Like what I’ve posted a couple of days ago, I hoped that things will go my way.. and it did!

Our project is finally over, but we’re still doing some investigations for it.  And then I was assigned for this special task and I accepted it confidently.  I can feel it… the passion is back.  I can see some improvement in me… and I’m hoping this will continue and I will not lose it.

I finally tried this new drink, I’ve been tweeting about it lately. Nescafe coffee drink.

I’m happy that I tried drinking this.  It was yummy, much cheaper than starbucks coffee, and it keeps me awake!  I can’t say that I’m officially addicted, but maybe.. I’ll buy one every morning. Haha!

Then last… hmmm wednesday? or thursday?… during our lunch break, I was tuned in to The Ride… RX started giving away tickets for the Monster Movie Premiere of Knight and Day the other day, so I was waiting for chances of that promo… I went to our Net Kiosk and check my emails.. then when I went back to my table and put on my earphones, I heard Rico Robles announcing that the first texter will win a pair of MMP tix!! I grabbed my celfone, typed in my name and the answer, and sent it right away to 2299.  And voila! They announced that I won the premiere tickets!

Then last friday, while i was online, i decided to check out some of Gabe Bondoc’s videos that I haven’t seen yet.  I browsed his youtube page and saw his song “Addiction” and watched it.  Then I posted it in my facebook page.  After a couple of minutes, I received a notification saying “Gabe Bondoc accepted your friend request.”

Waaaaah! I got excited!! I instantly posted a message in his wall.. and broadcasted in my own wall!! I’m such a fan, I swear.  So since I still dont have a copy of his LP, i downloaded his songs, 56 songs!, and put it in my phone… I’m a big fan that way!  So here, lemme share to you one of his great songs.. Addiction.  Addicition it is.

Change for the better… part 2!

yesss.. may part 2 agad!
Just this week, we received news that some of the associates in our BU will be undergoing a 4-month training in the other department. And I’m one of them. Bam!
I really didn’t expect it to be this soon, so I’m a little shocked.  I thought that the previous batch was the last group to be transferred there.  BUT, our boss made an assurance to us that there will be no lateral transfer to the other department… and I’m holding on that assurance.  It will just be a 4-month training, a win-win thing they say, and by November, we’ll be back in 1st BU.
Right now, I don’t know what to think.  There are a lot of possibilities, and I’m trying to look at the good ones.  I trust my bosses, and I trust my company.  If they think this is a good path, I’ll go and follow.
So, I’ll just wait… wait and see where this ship will take me.

And with these things happening in my work life… this song by The Calling is probably my theme right now.. here’s Things Will Go My Way

“Things Will Go My Way”

I came to tell you
How it all began
Nothing seems to work out right
I’m broken down again
So hold me now
And say it’s not forever
Maybe someday
In time

Things will go my way
Things will go my way

I’ve pushed to get through
The crowds in twisted souls
Just to find I’m right back here
Doing what I’m told
So take my hands
Don’t let me surrender
‘Cuz maybe someday
Yeah, in time

Things will go my way
Things will go my way

For all the lies
I’ve tasted
Just looking for the truth
For all the dreams I’m chasing
Well what am I to do
When everything’s against me
The answers are all wrong
I’m hoping that I’ll find out
It was worth it all along

So hold me now
And say it’s not forever
Maybe someday
In time

Things will go my way
Things will go my way
Things will go my way

For all the lies
I’ve tasted
Just looking for the truth
For all the dreams I’m chasing
Well what am I to do
When everything’s against me
The answers are all wrong
I’m hoping that I’ll find out

Things will go my way
Things will go my way

Anong petsa na!?
