    Learning A Lot From That Shout Out

    Here is what happened before the shout out, our conversation. K: (Happy in her fan state of mind) “Ni-like ni Jameson yung mga banner na gawa ko.” Me: “Talaga? Maganda iyong may drawing mo as background.” And he picked that particular banner. That was his shoutout. That was his “Thank You!”. She used the free app, Canva and felt proud of herself as there was not much effort from her. My daughter responded with kindness, picked a free template, added photo and edited it a little. The fan girl in her was just happy. Next day… I had to hug her tight and wipe her tears. I gave her back…

    Janine Berdin; A Genuine Star of this Generation

    Young and talented Janine Berdin is a semi-finalist for the 4th quarter of Tawag Ng Tanghalan in It’s Showtime. She instantly got my attention and admiration the first time I saw and heard her sang during the daily round. Her talent and X factor made me say: “this girl will make it to the semis and even to the finals.” I even got the same feeling I had when I saw Sarah Geronimo, Charice Pempengco (now Jake Zyrus) and KZ Tandingan perform years ago in their respective singing contest performances. Janine Berdin will definitely go a long way. It is evident as all her performances get standing ovation from the…

    BTS Fan Art

    My daughter K, @heyitskea on Instagram, learned about an app she can use for digital arts. So, she decided to try it and installed AutoDesk Sketchbook. Then there was the image of her being so busy with a few little artworks. She made a few until she decided to try something a little complicated, a BTS fan art as she call it. This one below took a little time and really challenged her because she did not use any stylus, just her fingers and mobile phone. She is a fan of BTS, and her bias is Kim Tae-hyung, also known by his stage name V. K may have thought of challenging herself…

    Be Moved By Miracle in Cell No.7 Movie

    My friend Pia recommended this movie to me when she tagged me in her Facebook status sometime last week. In her stat, she has declared how she has been touched by the movie that she had to suffer from a headache after crying (because of the movie). From then, I searched for info and photos of Miracle in Cell No.7 and honestly got a lot more curious. Since last week was the Holy Week, I grabbed the opportunity to work for additional hours. We stayed at home and only until Sunday did we went out and attended the “Salubong” and Easter Sunday mass. I forgot about the movie already. My…

    Frozen: Our New Favorite Disney Movie

    Everyone’s been talking about Frozen. A lot has loved Elsa, Anna and of course, Olaf! Every little girl may have already sang their own cover of “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?” and “Let It Go”. My girls did. Unfortunately, the audio of my netbook is not working. The video recorder of my phone did not work either. So, we have an audio less video. It is proper not to show it at all, ha ha! I can no longer recall as to how many times we and they watched Frozen. I have enjoyed the movie too. I loved how Disney showed different characteristics of modern women, princesses in the…

    Walking Dead Season 4: All Ready!

    Hi! I can no longer recall the last time I wrote something on my blog unless of course, look into my last post”s date. I have been half dead (I”d like to call it that way!) and still walking to get through rough moments of life. You know, ugly stitches (by this I mean experiences and trials) come along. I just have to be as tough as the Walking Dead”s sheriff and as bad-ass as sexy Daryl (Norman Reedus, who else?). Yes! I am totally excited that The casino jameshallison Walking Dead is back for its Season 4. And equally excited that I am back writing here too! If “I…

    The Walking Dead Season 2 Finale

    Yesterday’s The Walking Dead Season 2 finale became the talk of the town, err… world! It has been reported that season 2 finale shattered its own record TV ratings. This TV series has caught my attention as soon as I was able to see its first edition via online streaming. I became addicted ever since. I have to set aside the other TV series I have been watching to give way and catch up with The Walking Dead. Season 2’s episode “Judge, Jury, Executioner” made me cry and I will really miss Dale. That episode made me wish for Shane (Jon Bernthal) to exit as well. His character became so…

    Barney Space Adventures in Manila

    What more exciting for kids than to see Barney in a show, live! My elder daughter grew up loving Barney and it goes the same with the younger one. Their adoration of Barney can easily be seen with all the VCDs and DVDs we have at home. It is from Barney they both learned the magic words, “Please” and “Thank You”. It was Barney and Mommy here of course who taught them the song “I Love You, You Love Me”. We have seen recorded Barney show in DVD format but not a live one yet. My elder daughter got to experience Disney On Ice show few years back and so…

    Lea Salonga vs. Anne Curtis?

    Annebisyosa, No Other Concert was held very recently. It was a hit and I am not surprised. It was also just recently when Tony Award–winning actress and singer Lea Salonga was questioned about her “strong opinions about off-key singers” and if she was referring to Anne Curtis. It was denied by Lea, said that Anne didn’t identify herself as a singer and just made her dream concert come true so she ( Lea Salonga ) can’t be angry at Anne. In fact, Lea Salonga said she’s happy for Anne has made her dream a reality. I feel personally happy for Anne as well, everyone who attended the concert went home…
