Tadah! Midweek post. I initially planned to blog only on weekends but I’ve been getting lots of ideas so…
First music post is about Pixie Lott. Heard ‘Boys and Girls’ late last year but she never really registered to me. Last week, I heard ‘Cry Me Out’ on an online radio while at work and I just had to check her out.
At only 19 years old, she has already been nominated for 3 Brit Awards. I’m no expert on music but I’m pretty sure I’ve got an eye rather an ear for good ones. Won’t post too much details as there’s a wikipedia article on her and of course her website.
Here are my favorites from her first album ‘Turn It Up’.

Sinulog is one of (if not) the grandest festivals in the Philippines. It starts off with the 9 days Novena at the Basilica del Santo Niño. The main festival which is the Grand Parade is held each year on the third Sunday. It is essentially a dance ritual which remembers the Filipino people’s pagan past and their acceptance of Christianity.
As a Cebuano, I grew up celebrating this festival. I don’t think my family has ever missed it. This year is no different.

I’ve been wanting to start blogging again and the first day of a new year seemed a good time to do it. So here I am, trying to blog. Won’t say that I’m having an easy time haha. The last time I blogged was uhmmm (checking my multiply account) July 8, 2008.
2009 was a good year for me. It was not particularly eventful but I feel really peaceful thinking about the past year. I made life-changing decisions on ’07 and ’08 (some regretful if I was the type to regret), that 2009 pales in comparison. Nonetheless, it still feels as important. As there were lots of challenges from the 2 prior years, resolutions and closures happened in ’09. I’ve learned to really let go of things that have happened. It’s also good that I’ve rebuilt bridges I burnt (yes.. I). It’s safe to say that I’ve grown and matured more.
It feels great that I started 2010 with a clear mind and heart. I’m not one to make new year’s resolutions as I feel they are unnecessary. This year though, I’ll be doing it a little differently. Still no resolutions.. just goals. I’m positive I’ll achieve my goals this year =)
Here’s to another great year! Sincerely wishing everyone to have enough in 2010! Cheers!
