Music on the Islands
Cool waters enveloped our warm bodies and music moved us in the midst of the mountain theater of Malasimbo - these moments of perfect happiness on our 7107 islands. :)
Perfect weather and place for easy listening
Home-style stage set up - carabao horns and the sun symbol decorate the stage
Nothing like sharing beats with a thousand others as we listened to bands like Up Dharma Down and the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the 7107 concert. :)
I don’t know why it took me only after four years to find out that it snows in U.P. Driving into AS parking, I felt like a character in some anime film. Fluttering specks of white descended to the ground and passerbys picked them up to further inspect its delicateness. Sigh. UP I will miss </3
A little DIY before school starts. Bracelet holder: made with toilet paper rolls, old cardboard, a kite stick, and forgotten music sheets. 100% recyclable! :)
Watch your thoughts, for they will become actions. Watch your actions, for they will become habits. Watch your habits for they will forge your character. Watch your character, for it will make your destiny.

There are times when it’s best not to plan what note to play next, or what phrase completes the melody… sometimes it’s better to simply flow with the music and let it take you places.

If evolution theories tell us that we adapt in order to survive, can our mind and bodies please learn to get by with less sleep? :|
The joy of learning - when things start to click in your head the 2nd or 3rd time around and you feel as if your neural circuitry is rewiring to the new information. The stress doesn’t come from studying per se, but from being given too many things to study without ample time; and the mistake of traditional school systems is that they think what they do is make their pupils learn when instead students get trained to become experts in the use of short term memory until the next exam comes around.
We are known for our resiliency, which is closely related to preseverance - For everytime we fall, we build enough strength so that we’ll be strong enough never to fall again.

There is a unifying feeling about going home with Filipinos from abroad. With bags of Duty-Free last minute bought pasalubong products and newly bought laptops and cellphones in hand, its the feeling of the fulfillment of a common purpose. It’s like going home after a hard day’s work except that the day has stretched into years and home isn’t how you left it.
