Eastwood City presents MTV Sessions featuring Bamboo



Ayie and I watched MTV sessions featuring Bamboo at Eastwood Central Plaza. We arrived around 8pm, since the show hasn't started yet, we decided to have our dinner at the al fresco area of Jack's Loft. I ordered my usual meat lasagna and Ayie ordered beef stroganoff and the fishbowl iced tea. When we started eating, the front act band started to play (I can't remember the name of the band), they were good but I'm not familiar with the songs they are singing so I just concentrated in eating my food.>



After their set, the MTV VJ announced that Bamboo would be the next to perform. It took them more than 10 minutes to do the sound check, giving us more time to decide on what to get for dessert. After much thought, we settled for the "I DECLAIR" dessert of Jack's Loft. It's a 6-inch eclair with 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream inside and the whole eclair is covered with whipped cream. Yummy! We ate it while listening to Bamboo. It was so deliciious, a definite sugar overload! . . . (Reminder to self - - Go to the gym tomorrow, run for one hour in the treadmill and also do the cross training thing, to lose all the calories for eating too much sweets!)

Bamboo sung 9 songs total. He sung the following songs: Probinsyana, Hinahanap hanap kita, Kisapmata, Muli, Kailan, Tatsulok, Noypi and Hallelujah. I only listed 8 songs, since I forgot the title of the other English song he sung.

A lot of people watched the show. Even if it rained, people stayed to watch. It was almost 10pm when it ended. We decided to go home after the show since Ayie is not feeling well. He may not be feeling well but he said it was all worth it, since he was able to watch and hear Bamboo live.

Tomorrow, Sitti will be having her album launch at the Eastwood Mall Open Area. I am still thinking if I will go and see it. Ayie won't be coming with me, said he has work. Maybe, I just need to invite a friend or some friends to join me. . . Well, I still have lots of time to think about it. For now, I need to go back to sleep.

Count on Me by Default

Problems arise from time to time. And last week was full of problems, arguments. I was sad and angry the whole week. It just seems that everything I do and say are all wrong, that I am always being judged on what I say or do.

A friend of mine sent me this song in my email, he told me to read the lyrics and listen to the song. It was his song for me. It was his way of telling me that I can always count on him at my lowest and darkest times.

It's the first time I have heard of the song. I don't even know there was a band in the name of Default. I'm not a rock fan anyways. But reading the lyrics and listening to it, I really appreciate the message of the song. And I am thankful to him for sending this to me. I listen to it everytime I feel down and sad.

Well, here's the lyrics of COUNT ON ME by DEFAULT


Count On Me - Default


Count On Me - Default

I know that life ain't always good to you
I've seen exactly what it's put you through
Thrown you around and turned you upside down and so you
You got to thinking there was no way out
You started sinking and it pulled you down
It may be tough you've got to get back up
Because you know that life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
You can count on me
'Cause I will carry you 'till you carry on

Anytime you need someone
Somebody strong to lean on
Well you can count on me to hold you 'till the healing is done
And every time you fall apart
Well you can hide here in my arms
And you can count on me to hold you 'till that feeling is gone

I wonder why nobody's waiting on you
I'd like to be the one to pull you through your darkest times
I'd love to be the light that finds you
I see a silver lining on your cloud
I'll pick you up whenever you fall down
Just take my hand and I will help you stand
Because you know that life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
You can count on me
'Cause I will carry you 'till you carry on

Anytime you need someone
Somebody strong to lean on
Well you can count on me to hold you 'till the healing is done
And every time you fall apart
Well you can hide here in my arms
And you can count on me to hold you 'till that feeling is
Gone so you can live today
Say so long to yesterday
Keep on counting on me to carry you 'till you carry on
Carry on

You know that life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
You can count on me 'cause I will carry you 'till you carry on
Anytime you need someone
Somebody strong to lean on
Well you can count on me to hold you 'till that healing is done
And every time you fall apart
Well you can hide here in my arms
And you can count on me to hold you 'till that feeling is gone

Remember life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
That you can count on me to hold you 'till that feeling is gone

Remember life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
That you can count on me to hold you 'till that feeling is gone

On losing weight

Ever since I started working at home, I also gained weight. From a mere 90-95 pounds, I went up to 120 pounds in just a few months. All this is because I have only been eating, sleeping, and working the whole day. Clicking my computer mouse, typing in my keyboard, walking just around the house, and with zero or no physical activity or exercise, helped a lot in gaining weight.

Last summer, I decided to enroll at Fitness First Eastwood and also have a personal trainor. At first, I was kind of hesitant in going to the gym as I know it would really take some of my time, instead of working I would be at the gym, sweating it out. I started working out three times a week before going to work. Sometimes, I do cardio in between. It was a little hard with all the exercises I have to do targeting the whole body (arms, shoulders, triceps, biceps, abs, legs, etc) to convert the fat to muscles. I got sore after each workout making it hard for me to move.

After 2 months, and a lot of "pasaway" moments, I felt lighter, and looking at the mirror, I know I lost weight already. I can wear my old clothes again (yey!). Friends say that I lost weight and they like it better compared to the chubby me hehe! The only problem right now, is my tummy. It's a little hard to make it go back to the flat tummy I used to have years ago. I hope, in time, with a lot of sacrifice, that means cutting out on softdrinks (my fave!) and foods that contribute to a bloated tummy.

My goal, I would be leaner and fitter in 2 or 3 months time, that would October 2009.

Let's see!!


Looking for other ways to earn

For the past few months, I have been busy looking for other ways to earn money. Compared last year, there are more expenses these days. What with the monthly amortization of both the condo unit and the car, the utility bills, monthly dues for my gym membership, groceries, etc. With all these things, I really need to look for other ways to earn money.
Work with Odesk has been pretty slow lately. My adsense account is moving but it's not yet enough. I have signed up to different affiliate programs but still hadn't gotten around to promoting or even advertising them to see if it really works.

I'm planning to go back to reselling but I know that it would take too much of my time going to the supplier, shipping the items, meeting the buyers, etc.
I'm also planning on applying again for another job but it would mean sacrificing my Odesk work.
I am still busy looking . . . I hope that I could come up with something really soon
