Visiting the Place of My Beloved Ones

It's All Saints Day and I should move out of the house with my sister, buy some flowers and 
candles and visit 2 cemeteries where my beloved ones (at both sides) were buried. 

I heard one of the reporters in ABS-CBN who said that "It is important to visit your beloved ones in All Saint's Day/All Soul's Day not only to be with them but also to complete the whole family." 

There is the time where I get used to look at the grave of my beloved ones and pray for their souls that should rest in peace and be with our Almighty God, our Savior. And whenever I visit them, I must stay longer to show my love and respect to my ancestors. 

Siyempre, hindi mo maalis ang pagbalik ng aming pagkabata, I still collect melted candles and make it into a candle ball and while waiting for visitors, we exchange conversations, light a candle and we bond with other. But I saw emptied graves which is a bit creepwhile finding the grave of your loved ones.

Web Designing/Developing For Leisure

I had a great day configuring my blogspot from its standard and simple to a presentable design. I remember last 2 semesters when we had a Web Technology class which I'm fond of making websites with animated objects (.swf) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). Adobe Flash and Dreamweaver are my tools and http://www.w3.org is one of my guides for making more interactive websites.

Before I planned to develop my blog design, I got this blogger template for free (and that was 3-4 months ago) in a .ZIP file. While reading and ranting posts, I noticed that my blog design was so dull because the theme color of my blogspot is BLACK that made my posts not worth reading. 

"I want to make my blog design so simpler" so I developed my blog design:

first the color theme which I made it WHITE 
- then a bit sidebar configurations..
- I made my own linked widget (which you could see in my blog). Every picture links in some websites which I used to surf and share my thoughts with.
- I removed the header background (which is a picture in .gif) and set it the same as my color theme

and my first developed blog design stayed for 3 and a half months.

NOW "I want to make my blog design so interactive" so I developed AGAIN my recent blog design:

- I used Adobe Photoshop in editing photos, uploaded it and used this photos as designs in my blog.
- I used Notepad++ to configure the HTML and CSS part of the blog design
- a bit post-comment configurations (which I didn't notice when I first developed it)

and BWALLAAA! 

NEW LOOK! :) 

Hope you like it fellow bloggers and visitors.

Top 5 YouTube! Sensations

 YouTube! is a internet place/website where anyone can watch/view, upload and share their videos to millions and millions of people around the world. Almost anything you need is here in this site but most of the time when you like their videos and replay it a couple of times, you can't get rid clicking/hitting the  button. Just be aware that the button you are clicking is much more persuasive than the videos you're watching. Funny but true. :)


Next, let's proceed to the people who are always fired in making their sessions or videos that their fans should love watching/playing it over and over again and before or after their sessions or in a separate video, they love to say "buy our albums.., please do subscribe our channel, etc.", in short these people are called the YouTube! Sensations.


I wonder why they sing much better than some known artists. It was last year I'm fond of listening covers rather than listening to original songs made by known artists.   


I was so mesmerized and inspired by some of the YouTube! Sensations I have chosen because they have lots of talents and used these talents to help other people (particularly those who were affected in some calamities like tsunamis, hurricanes, typhoons and those people who were ill because of cancer, etc.). 


Introducing the Top 5 YouTube Sensations,


5.) Kina Grannis






She is one of the gorgeous girls I've watched in YouTube for a long time and she struck me every time I played her videos and her covers are so sweet and pleasant to the ears. Known for her wonderful voice with her lovely guitar. Her original song "Valentine" and her cover with AJ Rafael's "Two is Better Than One" made my day and these two are in my brain's playlist.  


4.) Gabe Bondoc






Known for his cold and rough but wonderful voice and playing his guitar with ample of chord variations. Because of him, I learned some of his covers with a bit of chord variations, improved plucking and strumming and a lot more. When you watched his videos, he'll gently touches your heart until it pumps out loud shouting for love. His original songs "Gentlemen Don't", "When You Say" and his covers like "Man in the Mirror", "Grenade" and other covers he played with his acoustic guitar made me challenged a bit so that I could play also the guitar yet these songs are also in my brain's playlist. 


3.) Ryan Higa 






Also known as "Niga Higa" in YouTube. Known for his pacute antiques + his epic face + his superb jokes = yes!, that's him. *laugh*


I remember his video "Honk for Japan", too epic but every car's honk cost 1 dollar($) and every 1,000,000 views in his videos cost 600 dollars($) to support and help Japan through their rough times (earthquake and tsunami) and "Dear Ryan" wherein people should ask him a question and he'll make a video not only to answer your question but also to laugh you so hard. Too epic isn't it? And lastly the "Off the Pill" sessions wherein he rants his opinions about some issues, just search it and you'll find and laugh out. 


Those videos made me so very happy every time I'm bored inside my dorm or I'm depressed because I had a low grade in my major subject. "Laughter is the best medicine at all times" ika nga. *laugh-laugh-laugh* :))


2.) Jason Yang




He is a versatile musician but his specialty is to play his violin (silent or acoustic) with a romantic aura that fills in your heart. I am deeply inspired because he started to play his violin since he was a kid that's why he's loyal to it and he played a lot of instruments. His fond of music made him  share his talents by covering some of the greatest songs that are known in the present. 


His covers "OMG by Usher (Violin Cover)", "I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas "Canon in D by Pachelbel" but with a bit of dynamics, "Game of Thrones Theme Song", "Moonlight Sonata with a glimpse of Grenade by Bruno Mars" made me so inspired in playing the violin even the "Wii Tutting Song" has a cover made by him. 


and last but not the least.. 


1.) AJ Rafael






Also a versatile musician but he's more active in playing his piano and composing songs. I guess he's friendly because I saw some of his videos with one of my Top 5 YouTube! Sensations. He and Gabe are Filipino-American musicians, that's why I'm very proud of them because they do stand out for my country and also for their country. I was influenced by him because he do composing songs, making a cover and showing his videos to millions and millions of people but that's not all, he showed his talents and he dedicated it to other people. 


Like his music video "Without You" which he dedicated it to those who fought the worst battle against a life-threatening event, that they should realize the fact of not being alone in their struggles. And he sang "My Soldier" which he dedicated it to those who suffered from the typhoon Ondoy in the Philippines that happened 2 years ago, that they should be strong in times of calamity.


I was so inspired of his songs (not to mention all of them), just listen to his compositions and you'll find it as one of your brain's playlist. I started to hear his songs when I searched his cover with Kat Badar (also a YouTube! Sensation) "Always by Atlantic Starr". 




These are my TOP 5 YOUTUBE! SENSATIONS

Day, Time and Place - SC

Panatag na'ng kalooban ko by the time I bought this album released by one of my favorite OPM bands, Spongecola. And because of this album, I started to stargaze and to dream about a girl who sometimes weeps and made her the one of the most regal and towering part of my life. She missed me so much and I remember the time where one of my friends captured us while watching the scenic view of the bay. 


The dream was one of the best I've ever dreamed of and sana'y walang wakas ang panaginip ko. Every song that I played made me realized that this place was so relaxing and mas ok dito kung andito ka sa tabi ko, soundtripping 'till our hearts entwine. But this semestral break, I can't even set a plan kung anong araw, oras at tagpuan, I really missed you so much. That's why I'm here, ranting out what I want to say.

In short, my inspiration made me blog here at BLOGGER

nice, isn't it? 



Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay, 4th album of Spongecola (entitled Araw, Oras at Tagpuan) that was released last September 2011.  New songs that made me LSS-ed a million times (to exaggerated but true). 

Hindi naman masyadong halata yung mae-LSS ka sa kanta nila. Papaano ba naman you've completed all the albums released by SC, alam mo halos lahat ng kanta nila, hindi evident.

Buy this album and you'll never regret it! :) 
There are 13 songs/tracks under this album:

1. Tambay
2. Stargazer
3. Regal
4. Ok Dito
5. She Weeps
6. Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay
7. She Wants You To
8. Walang Wakas
9. New Steel
10. Warning:
11. Scenic View
12. Araw Oras Tagpuan

O diba 13? :)

Ano Balak Mo This Semestral Break?

Two individuals talking about semestral break plan.. 


Ano nga bang balak ko ngayong sembreak?


Nako, Kev, think about it! Last semester you had so much plans this semestral break
tapos nung dumating na ang hinihintay mo, none of your plans are checked on the list.  

On your list were the following:
[ ] Advance Reading 
[ ] Driver's License (for driving improvements)
[ ] Violin 102
[ ]  Block Reunion
[ ] Meet Her <3

See?

Sana makayanan ko yung mga nakasulat sa listahan, the first two in the list will take a bit longer before these will be checked/accomplished and the bottom two will soon come at no time.

5 Semesters Down, Summer and 3 To Go


After 2 1/2 years of hard work and diligence, another grade output released last two days and I guess it's not bad because it was one of my highest semestral average I've earned in my college life. GOD, thank YOU for the knowledge and strength during my college life and for the countless blessings YOU have given to me. 

Here is a SUMMARY of my first half of my college junior life: Same faces but interesting personalities (they're the best block section for me), some professors were a bit strict but they gave us bits of information that we need and that we'll surely use this coming sem and we had our first general assembly held outside our university that was so successful because   lots of IT students attended in that event. And for leisure (whenever I'm pressured or free), I'm with my very own chorale practicing and singing every First Friday mass. 

Added Summary: Had my first anniversary with my "buub-booy" (my inspiration) last 3 months, had my birthday one month after (LET'S DO THE MATH, joke!)

Next semester, I will face one of the hardest sems at Information Technology (thesis, thesis-thesisan in other subjects, defense, system analysis design, more knowledge in computers like networking, architecture and a lot more). So exciting but TIME CRISIS comes even though my schedule will start every morning till after lunch.

IT'S MY CHOICE.. SO I'M BRACING MYSELF. :)

BUT THIS TIME, SURE PASS = HAPPY VACATION! <3

konting tiis nalang! :)

My Destiny Starts Here

2 MONTHS of not updating my blogs made me so busy as usual. "MAGSUSUNOG LANG NG KILAY" just to be in the lead with my batch mates in college, so challenging isn't it? Oh well, gonna start this day forward with the BLAST!


JUNE is the month were it started. Drenching myself back dun sa magsusunog ka nanaman ng kilay after summer ends, because I know this year, MY JUNIOR YEAR in college is much harder than MY LAST 2 CONSECUTIVE YEARS in UST. I've been realized last summer about "what will happen if I survive this challenge?" and "If there are series of challenges that will come and hinder my goals, will I survive this situation or not?". It's a matter of time that runs.


All my worries formed into one interrogative statement. "AM I DESTINED TO BE IN THIS LANE?"


"YOUR KINGDOM COME, YOUR WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN." - Matthew 6:10

I really love this week because it's raining and i feel that summer will be over by June. 


By the way, I'M BACK. I'm glad that I re-constructed my blog design, I just wanted to have a simple design that hopefully people should be more appreciative at my blog. HOPEFULLY


I enjoyed my vacation a lot, with a blast and great SPLASH


LET'S START THIS AGAIN! :)

Summer Job? Where Art Thou?

After couple of weeks of staying here at my house waiting for the sunrise until it reaches sunset. 


SUMMER JOB! WHERE ART THOU? 


I want to experience working something (as my boss said) as well as earning money for living. :(


Oh well, back to basics. :(

Love Equals To Brightness

"THIS NEXT SONG IS ALL ABOUT LOVE, AND I WROTE ALL BY MYSELF" - Eraserheads


My own composition is entitled "Brightness". I had wrote this song couple of days before we celebrated Valentines Day. What a grateful one with the girl I loved so much. 


Every time she looks at the star, her mood changes from emptiness to instant happiness. The scene here is she's in the terrace while holding her SLR Camera, then she captured what she saw at that time. At that very moment, she remembers the guy who loved so tender. 


HOW BRIGHT IS MY LOVE FOR YOU? :)  


BRIGHTNESS

(v-1)
the moment she glance
from its luminous appearance
she rather stay here late and wait
but the time runs so swiftly
and she feels so empty
that every night, the stars are fading 
(refrain)
casting away the thoughts in mind 
down in the nocturnal side 
(chorus)
the star shines, (she in a happy mood)
is the reason why i’m here for you 
it brightness made her feel so good..
the star shines, high above the sky
it made her so alive, so alive
remember, the star shines bright for you
(v-2)
another day had passed
she captured that moment 
“luckily, that I found you”, she never knew her day so blue. 
(repeat refrain)
(repeat chorus)
bridge:
“tonight my day so blue 
I finally found you. 
I never knew, I never knew…” 
(repeat chorus)
remember, the star shines bright for you.

My School Year-Ender

I'M BACK! :D


Finally! After months of slashed wrist exams with matching computations and memorizations, mock thesis defense and a nonstop web designing that didn't gave me enough time to sleep or rest for a while,


I PASSED ALL MY SUBJECTS ONCE AGAIN. THANK GOD! I LOVE YOU!






The next step will be much harder than those I surpassed for the first 2 years at the University of Santo Tomas, that's why I'm planning for it. 


<< FLASHBACK <<


Oh well, you've thought my school year's a burden, NOPE!. That doesn't end my school year! :)


IT ENDS LIKE THIS..






We brought another trophy! As ME and my fellow ONE VOICE ENGINEERING CHORALE awarded once more as PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD (GRANDSLAM!) and 2ND RUNNER-UP in the HIMIG TOMASINO 2011. I'm proud of our      Shembot moves and our choice piece as well. 


Better watch it on YouTube!






Another date with my INSPIRATION, who made me happy for 8 months (tomorrow is our 9th month) and beyond .






A day with my blockmates/BATCHMATES at Enchanted Kingdom, Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I hope our magic stays with us until the time we finally get our diplomas and throw our mortars up high. I LOVE YOU GUYS! :) 







PAINTBALL GAME with my TEAMMATES in ROTC. This isn't just a sport, ROCK AND ROLL! And finally all of the cadets ends in one happy GRADUATION. Congratulations fellow cadets/cadettes and to our officers who trained us for 2 semesters! 


(UST-ROTC) Cdt./Pvt. Pangilinan, Kevin G. signing off. *toot*







A beach volleyball game, bonding moments and a wonderful time with my fellow Beach Volleyball Allstars. And because of this, I want to play beach volleyball with them, SOON! :)

February (Multiples of 7 < 21) = Days of Love

February 7, 2011

That was exactly our 7th month and we both have classes on that day. I was about to tell her that after her class, I'll treat her for dinner. It was a trip to Roque RuaƱo Building because every person I know (including the guard) gave me 5 KitKat Chocolates from different floors and areas. Then by the time I came outside of the building and seated next to her at the pavilion, she gave me another chocolate and last but not the least she gave me a bitten apple (take note she had bit it before she gave it to me) with a letter next to it.

This is one of the wonderful times of my life even though I'm tired of finding each and every person who holds the chocolate. 




HAPPY 7TH MONTHSARY P.A.I.G. I <3 YOU SO MUCH! :*

PROUD TO BE THOMASIAN. UST'S 400 YEARS OF UNENDING GRACE! :)


2010 BBLLAASSTT! (Part 4)

OCTOBER

Oh yeah! SEMESTRAL BREAK, here I come.. But before that, this is the memorabilia I remember when I was in 2nd Year, 1st Semester


I was the one who edited this video. And guess what? It's one of my video editing collections. Hope you don't mind that I edited 5-7 AUDIO-VIDEO/VISUAL PRESENTATIONS (the longest is about 15 minutes and the shortest is about 3 mins), 1 VIDEO a day. 

Back to this month, I remember being frustrated in playing my VIOLIN that tested my patience for bowing the right note (good thing I have my ears to correct my musical notes). And because I'm frustrated, my brother downloaded me a violin tutorial that helped me a lot. 

And I discovered the Adobe as well as the HTML/CSS Language (Adobe Dreamweaver CS4)  and the Adobe After Effects CS4 which it made me so frustrated but acknowledged in a sense of being an Information Technologist and it is related to my major subject that happened this year. 

I'm so updated also in English Premier League (siyempre, di ko makakalimutan 'to, GO MANCHESTER UNITED!).

NOVEMBER

All Saint's Day. We went to our dearly beloved relatives in both sides. 



In this picture, it's my grandmother (in my mother side) who passed away 5 years ago yet the moments we've both shared is instill in my heart. I LOVE YOU MAMANG! :)


In this picture, it's my grandmother (in my father side) who passed away 6 months ago yet her memories with me is also instill in my heart. I LOVE YOU LOLA CONCHING!

After 2 weeks of semestral break, OH YEAH! PASUKAN NANAMAN!

NEW BLOCKMATES CAME INTO PLACE. HELLO 2IT-E, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY!

Let's proceed..

DECEMBER

PASKO NA!
PASKU NA! (queng Kapampangan)
PASKUHAN NA! (in University of Santo Tomas)

IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME! ♪ "time to share our love, come enjoy give tidings to the world". 


Speaking of Christmas, it's a cold one in UST as we celebrated our Paskuhan Festival with lots of christmas lights and parols inside our university. This is my 2nd time celebrating Christmas at UST. It will be so memorable as I will graduate here in the university (crossed-fingers). 





I love my batchmates. But wait, there's more! 

   
First picture for the win, thanks to my sister who captured it. We had our MISA DE GALLO in Sta. Ana, Pampanga. Second picture is so good. It made me much frustrated as I looked this picture. This piano wasn't on  and I'm pretending playing it. :))

It made my Christmas more memorable when we had our family Christmas party and gift-giving. We did sing each other, playing games and giving gifts as well. 



First picture with my uncles, aunts and my grandfather. Second picture with my cousins and again with Papang.
LOVE THEM SO MUCH! 

THIS IS IT. I FINALLY COMPLETED THE MONTHS LAST YEAR. (SORRY FOR THE DELAY!) 

I WISH THIS YEAR IT WILL BE A SUPER GREAT YEAR FOR EACH OF US.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)
