whether the weather is bad

Weather
Issued At:
5:00 a.m., 15 May 2008
Synopsis : At 2:00 a.m. today, Tropical Depression "COSME" was estimated based on satellite and surface data at 390 kms west southwest of Calapan, Oriental Mindoro (12.8ºN 117.5ºE) with maximum winds of 55 kph near the center. It is forecast to move north at 7 kph. Meanwhile, an Active Low Pressure Area (ALPA) was estimated at 170 kms east northeast of Casiguran, Aurora (17.0ºN 123.8ºE).

Sa Saturday pupunta kami ng Zambales Brgy. San Antonio. Isa nanamang adventure ito lalo na kung uulan ng malakas at may hangin pa.

Naalala ko tuloy nung una kong punta ng PUERTO GALERA last year. Signal number 1 yun tapos lahat ng biyahe cancelled sa batangas PIER. Kami ay tumakas lamang dahil may nag alok sa amin ng PRIVATE vote papunta dun sa White Beach. Ang lakas ng alon grabe, parang masisira na ung bangka na sinasakyan namin.

Sana nga lang hindi ganun ka grabe ang mangyari sa sabadong darating tulad ng nangyari sa amin last year sa puerto galera.

Kakaibang adventure ito, dahil pupunta kami sa isang isla na walang kuryente, ilaw, at pagkain. Kami ay magtatayo lamang ng tent at magdadala ng pagkain.

whether the weather is bad tuloy kami!

Marié Diby finally!

Last Monday I received a Parcel letter coming from Novaliches Post office. Yesterday in the morning I went to our post office and claimed the CD I ordered at SkyROO.com. I am so excited to get the CD and finally I have it now.

It was my first time to order online and I think I'm the first person here in the Philippines to have Marié Digby's Pre-album. It has 12 tracks and one DVD acoustic versions of her songs. I bought it for 812.00 pesos including the shipment using my credit card. I thought the CD was caught somewhere and it will not come. Just like Marié Digby told me

"
I wouldn't be worried because a lot of the people who ordered it from overseas got theirs weeks after. I am sure it is on it way. There is a contact number or email where you can ask what's going on.. I'm sure you can find it for skyroo.. You might want to contact them to see what's going on since I don't have anything to do with the cd's and how they go out ! But rest assured, you are still getting the best deal since it will have both the produced and acoustic album :) I hope it is worth the wait *"

Definitely, it is worth waiting!. I love you Marié Christina Digby!. haha!.You're so lovable and humble.

project tadhana

Wala lang. Naisip ko lang, pero susubukan ko lang. Kung susuwertihin na may papatol at susuporta sa balak ko bakit hindi? masama ba mag baka sakali?.

Tadhana by kitchie nadal

- Ito ang kantang nababagay o nararapat sa mga nakaranas ng kabiguan lalo na sa Pag-ibig.

Nung una kong narinig ang kantang ito ay nabighani na ako, at dahan dahang naaalala ko ang mga sakit ng nakaraan. Kung nalalaman nyo lang ang mga pinagdaanan kong kabiguan ang hindi ko makalimutan at kahit papano ay may kirot pa rin ay nang iwan ako ng aking minamahal. Natural masakit talaga iwan ng taong mahal mo, lalo nat alam mo na parang wala ng katapusan ang kasiyahan nyo di ba ang saya nag pakiramdam pag nagmahal ka

Here it goes. This is my story!. May girlfriend ako dati, ang saya saya namin palagi walang katapusang kasayahan. Natatakot nga ako na baka isang araw iwan nalang nya ako, pero dko na inisip yun basta ang mahalaga sa akin ay masaya kami nung mga panahong yun.

Isang araw , napapansin ko na palagi siyang nahihilo at napapagod. Maputla lagi siya at mahina ang resistensya. Sabi ko mag pa check up siya. Pagkalipas ng ilang araw lumabas ang resulta ng checkup nya. Siya daw ay may SLE "Systemic lupus erythematosus". Sabi ng doctor malala na daw ung sakit nya, bakit daw hindi cya napapatingin simula nung naramdaman nya ung mga symptoms.

Nung nalaman ko yun, para akong unti unting kandilang nauupos. Sa tuwing kausap ko siya sa umaga mga apat na beses sa isang araw sa cellfone ko siya tinatawagan para lumakas ang loob nya at labanan nya sakit nya at para malaman nya na mahal na mahal ko siya.

Pinili nya na wag nalang magpagamot at pumunta siya ng BACOLOD para doon mahimlay. She died there. It was SUNDAY of November last year nagpapaalam na siya sa akin sa cellfone na di nya na kaya and she was crying that time. A couple of hour, her sister called me and she told me.. Jeff don't get shock, c gabbie nagpaalam na.. Ang masakit pa nun, I didn't get to see her when she died! wala ako ng mga panahong yun nang namatay siya..

Ganun talaga ang buhay. Pero atleast natuto nanaman ako!, hay.... sa ngayon masaya naman ako at nakapag move on na, I know masaya na sya sa taas.

-- Kaya naisipan kong gumawa ng MV ng tadhana, sa mga interesado kung paano nyo ako matutulungan ay maaring mag komento kayo sa ibaba. May storya na ako sa isip ko, matagal ko na ring pangarap na makagawa ng MV na tatatak sa puso ng mga manonood. Sa palagay ko itong kanta ni KITCHIE NADAL "tadhana"ay ang tamang kanta para sa naranasan ko. Sino kaya ang pwedeg gawing eeksena sa balak ko?. Isang babae lang at lalaki.

I love to be on-site

Ang sakit ng ulo ko kulang kasi ako sa tulog. Pag alis ko ng bahay hindi ako kumain ng agahan dahil ayoko maabutan ng traffic sa EDSA. Every morning I don't eat breakfast at home, what I do is bring it sa office at dito ko nalang cya kainin para di ako gutom pagdating.

Antok pa ako, ito kaka test ko lang ng software namin and it means working ang servers and stable ang connections ng mga clients namin all over the Philippines. My work here? haha Technical Support Representative lang on an I.T. software company. I've learned a lot on this job specially handling calls, handling irrate clients, meeting new people, how to handle a good conversation, marketing and higit sa lahat ng nabanggit ang pinaka gs2 ko sa trabaho ko ay on-site support. Why On-site support? kasi po sagot ng company lahat expenses so it means hindi ko na gagastos ang pera ko. Hehe.

Last year December 2007 we had a marketing project and I was assigned at REGION 1, CAR and Region 2. Imagine? pupuntahan ko lahat un?. I had so much fun with it, kapalan lang ng mukha sa pakikipag usap kahit alam mong ung minamarketan mo ay hindi interesado atleast you try diba?. Ang hindi ko lang makalimutan sa project na un ay nung galing ako ng LAOAG ILOCOS NORTE tapos nasa ISABELA na kami nun biruin mo ba naman pinabalik kami ng LAOAG uli tapos Pangasinan nanaman?. Hehehe. Pero ayos lang yun! because its my job.

I hope this year my project uling ganun. Pero I think di na magkakaroon. Thankful ako sa opportunity na un.

This year ang napupuntahan ko palang uli ay ang ISABELA at dalawang beses sa BALAYAN BATANGAS.

Kitchie Nadal - Back on track!

Some people ask me why Kitchie Nadal was not active in the music scene during 2005-2007and these are the reason.

During 2005-2007, Kitchie began touring outside the country, spreading her music to places as far as Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, India, Sydney, Qatar, Canada, Taiwan and the United States. It was a two-way process, and Kitchie accounts her current sound
to the vast cultural influences encountered in her travels. Kitchie has began releasing song samples to international listeners, and receiving outstanding feedback and reviews. Her songwriting has been described as “agonizingly beautiful” and her songs “completely flawless.” The young musician continues to do live gigs in the Philippines, while also collaborating with both local and foreign artists.

(excerpts from www.kitchienadal.net)

She is one of the successful female musicians to break into the local music scene with her hits ‘“Wag ‘na Wag Mong Sasabihin” and “Same Ground.” She is also the comp

oser and singer of the theme songs of popular TV series such as Rounin, Majika and I Luv New York. After touring different countries to share her music, Kitchie is ready to take on the local music scene once again. With her new album and a project with one of the leading companies in the world, Kitchie Nadal is definitely back.

Her new sound

Kitchie Nadal is known for her amazing vocal ability and provocative lyrics. With
her new album entitled Love Letter, she explores more of her song-writing talent by creating all the 16 tracks. The album, which features songs like “Highway,” “Love Letter,” “Wide Awake,” “Armour Bearer” and “Beautiful Jesus,” also includes collaborations with Jack Rufo, Cynthia Alexander and a European band. The tracks from the album are about life, love and relationship with God. Kitchie shared that in Love Letter, she wrote a lot of uplifting and optimistic songs.

This is different from her previous album. “For this album, we were more experimental. We tried different sounds,” Kitchie said. She also explained that they used technology to their advantage, allowing them to be more creative in making the tracks. This is proof that she is continuously evolving as an artist. Her new sound reflects a more mature Kitchie and a spiritual, contemplative nature. When asked what is her favorite song in the album, she answered “Love Letter.” She explained that the track is about finding someone who’s been looking for you. “I think that’s the best description of a love story,” she concluded.

Her stint with Caltex

Kitchie’s accomplishments and positive image as a Filipina musician were recognized by Caltex when they cast her to be the endorser for Caltex with Techron. In line with Caltex’s thrust of keeping journeys safe by having clean engines, they chose an artist who could best represent clean living.

In the launch of the commercial of Caltex with Techron at Bonifacio High Street last April 11, Kitchie shared her thoughts on the project: “This was the deal we’ve been waiting for.”

Dressed in casual yet stylish clothes, she caught the attention of the crowd with her simple and fresh aura. After rendering three songs from her new album, she imparted her experiences in making the commercial. She narrated that during the filming of the TVC, she was able to interact with the locals and visit a church in Africa.

It was apparent that both the staff of Caltex and Kitchie were happy to work with each other. Caltex representatives and Kitchie herself said that there were no hitches when they made the deal because everything just fell into place.

“There were no negotiation. In less than a week, they sent me to Africa,” Kitchie revealed.

The TV commercial, which is now airing in the country, features Kitchie and several international models playing musical instruments. A regional advertisement for Caltex, it is set to appear in seven countries.

There are many firsts for this project. For one, it is Caltex’s first time to feature a Filipina in their TV commercial. Incidentally, it is also Kitchie’s first work in endorsing a product in an international scale, a well-deserved break for the rock maiden.

Her latest hit, “Highway,” is also used for the radio advertisement of the said product. According to Kitchie, the song can be interpreted both literally and figuratively. Literally, it means keeping your engine clean for a safe journey. Figuratively, it means making the right choices in life and practising clean living. This was also the last song she wrote for her album.

With her prior successes in the field of music, her new sound and her latest feat as an endorser, Kitchie shows that she continues to grow as an artist. Her advice to aspiring musicians: “There’s no other way but to choose the right one.” She couldn’t emphasize more that clean living is the right way of life.

- Marie Digby pre order album -

I was surprised and stunned when this half Japanese and Irish Youtube Pheno. Marie Digby replied on MYSPACE account.

Maybe you guys are wondering why she replied?.

Well here's the real story.

I ordered MARIE DIGBY's pre order album last February 5, 2008 at Skyroo.com but until now I didn't receive the CD.
I used my credit card. It already reflected on my billing statement. Skyroo management said that I have to wait until May 9, 2008.

Regarding on this concern I emailed personally to her to know what are her sentiments about this and I'm glad she respond.

RE: hello.. about the pre album

Hi Jefford - I am confused, did you receive the album yet or not? When you say ' I haven't received it until now' usually means you got it but I"m thinking you actually haven't got it yet? WEll, I wouldn't be worried because a lot of the people who ordered it from overseas got theirs weeks after. I am sure it is on it way. There is a contact number or email where you can ask what's going on.. I'm sure you can find it for skyroo.. You might want to contact them to see what's going on since I don't have anything to do with the cd's and how they go out ! But rest assured, you are still getting the best deal since it will have both the produced and acoustic album :) I hope it is worth the wait *

bye ! marie'

Hi Marie,

I bought your pre album cd because I want to be the first person here to listen on your original cd. *sigh* But unfortunately I haven't receive it until now. I am so sad and feel bad, because I already paid it online using my CREDIT card. I paid but I didn't get any. I'm from the Philippines.
I am your number one fan here. Could you please help me regarding this?. My full name is JEFFORD SECONDES. GOD BLESS Marie..

I am expecting the cd this week.
