A great reminder from the Seattle Seahawks

5 February 2014

3 Comments

Apart from the fact that sports is my business, I really do enjoy watching games–especially big ones like the Super Bowl. Prior to this year’s Super Bowl, I was torn between rooting for the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. I like the Seahawks, but I also like Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning because he seems [...]

Have you heard of the Grapevine Faith Lions and the Gainesville State Tornadoes? If you answered yes, then chances are you probably heard about this story already. But if you’ve never heard of them before, please continue reading! One of the books I’ve been spending time on at the moment is Outlive Your Life: You [...]

You have a special message to deliver. Do you know what it is?

13 September 2010

Did you know that you’re a messenger? You are. In fact, we’re all messengers. Every day, our lives carry messages. Some of these can be messages of love and hope, and some can be messages of bitterness and anger. The options are endless. Every life tells a different story, and every story is made up [...]

Two Sundays ago, I watched a really cool band. I just had to blog about these guys, because watching them was one of the highlights of my month! They had the crowd singing and dancing…everybody had a blast! Introducing, our Kids Church music team! Seriously…are these not the two coolest band members you’ve ever seen? [...]

With a little help from my friends! (Part 1)

In just a few days, I’m leaving for a two-and-a-half month trip around the US. It’ll be the longest amount of time away from the Philippines for me since 2002. While I believe it’s going to fly by fast, the extended time away gives me a good excuse to meet up and catch up with [...]

Tribute to MTV Philippines

20 February 2010

The Super! section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer made a tribute to MTV Philippines, and they asked some of us to write about our memories. It was one of my toughest assignments ever…there was too much to say! I was still in Boracay with my family when I got the messages from Tammy David and [...]

Superhero series: DREW BREES (and a little something about Frank Gansz, Sr.)

8 February 2010

0 Comments

One day ago, I had no idea who Drew Brees was. While I don’t follow football religiously, I do enjoy the rare moments that I get to catch a game! Then I watched the Super Bowl (I opted to cheer for the New Orleans Saints!) and I saw this quarterback speak, and immediately I could [...]

Superhero series: the utterly charming Betty White

25 January 2010

0 Comments

I grew up watching The Golden Girls, so I think it’s uber-cool to see Betty White still around and still as charming as ever. When I hit 88, I hope I’ll still have my sense of humor! Watch her Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance speech at yesterday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards (you can fast forward to [...]

Today I want to talk about an organization called KYTHE. I’ve been hearing about Kythe since my college days, but I never got around to joining. I’m thankful that I finally had a chance to be a Kythe volunteer last weekend when my family decided to spend a morning at the National Children’s Hospital cancer [...]

I miss one of my best buddies, Jorel (also known as the guitarist of the local rock band, Kjwan), who’s over at Boston, living it up at his dream school: Berklee College of Music. He recently put together a benefit concert for the Typhoon Ondoy victims. Check it out here: We were already proud of [...]

Day 4! The number of people rescued has increased, but so has the number of fatalities. In case you missed it, the Philippines has been in a state of calamity this past week due to Tropical Storm Ketsana (Philippine name: ‘Ondoy’). I blogged about it here.

From time to time, I feature some people or groups that I think are pretty awesome. It’s called the SUPERHERO SERIES! When I was growing up, I was so captivated by C.S. Lewis‘ The Chronicles of Narnia. I first discovered it when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade through my brother. When I was [...]

Superhero series: MANNY PACQUIAO

Today’s fight was simply awesome. GREAT JOB, Pacman! I came across one of his entries on his online diary on Yahoo! Sports. I’m assuming this was actually an interview, like one of those, “as told by Manny Pacquiao” things… Anyway, I wanted to highlight this part that made me tear up: “Some people say that [...]

From time to time, I feature some people or groups that I think are pretty awesome. It’s called the SUPERHERO SERIES! I finally got to watch Taken with my father. As entertaining as it was (I thought it was a great action flick–awesome plot and script), the trafficking scenes really hit me hard. They hit [...]

From time to time, I’ll be featuring some people who I think are pretty awesome. I’m calling it the SUPERHERO SERIES! I made a new friend recently. His name is Eugene Tejada, and he’s a walking miracle. I first met Gene last January through my friends, LJ and Alex, when he joined us for lunch [...]
