The Time of My Life - David Cook

Monday, May 26, 2008

>> his winning piece.. :)
i just love this song, just like his rendition of Always Be My Baby.. :) lurve it.. hehe.. super duper THUMBS UP to Mr. David Cook.. :)

I've been waiting for my dreams
To turn into something
I could believe in
And looking for that
Magic rainbow
On the horizon
I couldn't see it
Until I let go
Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn
Now I'm coming alive
Body and soul
And feelin' my world start to turn

And I'll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time
To be more than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

Holding onto things that vanished
Into the air
Left me in pieces
But now I'm rising from the ashes
Finding my wings
And all that I needed
Was there all along
Within my reach
As close as the beat of my heart

So I'll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

And I'm out on the edge of forever
Ready to run
I'm keeping my feet on the ground
My arms open wide
My face to the sun

I'll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know
This is the time
This is the time of my life..
This is the time of my life..

What I'm Loving: My ZUNE.. :)

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

ZUNE is a brand of digital music products and services sold by Microsoft. It includes portable media players, client software, and the Zune Marketplace online music and video store. The devices come in three styles, all of which play music and videos, display images, and receive FM radio. They can share files wirelessly with other Zunes and via USB with Xbox 360s, and can sync wirelessly with Windows PCs.

The Zune Software, which runs on Windows XP and Vista, allows users to manage files on the player, rip audio CDs, and buy songs, music videos, and TV shows at the online store.

The first Zune models were released in the United States on November 19, 2006. The Zune 4, 8 and 80 were announced on October 2, 2007.
The second-generation Zune 4 GB, 8 GB, and 80 GB were announced on October 2, 2007. The 4 and 8 GB Zunes are flash-based and smaller in size than the 80 GB version. The 30GB Zune was not redesigned.

Recently, Microsoft has announced that Zunes will eventually be able to play games developed using XNA. Games will feature custom soundtracks and 8-player wireless multiplayer using the built-in Wi-Fi. It will also be possible to develop games that allow for Zune, Xbox, and Windows gamers to compete against each other. An early version of XNA Game Studio 3.0 released on May 7, 2008 allows developers to begin working on Zune games.

>> hehe.. im actually loving it.. mejo graduate muna aq from my ipod.. and im concentrating myself with this thing.. my ZUNE.. :) i absolutely love it 'coz it's actually one of the latest gadgets and i have one already.. Lucky ME! hehe.. :)

>> last thursday, may 15.. we went to mandarin oriental suites located at gateway mall to attend the Welcome Program for Mr. Frank Buescher.. who is he?.. he is the NEWest President and CEO of SYSMEX Asia-Pacific.. it was actually a dinner program for him.. so as usual, Zafire & Rhumba again became an Entertainment Industry in the sense that every group had somehow presented their talents.. some in dancing and others in singing.. :) the Rhumba group showcased their belly dancing skills.. the Zafire Manila had their Singkil dance.. and Zafire Luzon (me included of course) danced a Remix songs.. also, from our group, Deo, Aylwin and Sir Allan had their singing solo performances.. and they also had their TRIO performance, which was actually very well performed.. how i wish i also have a good voice for me to serenade Mr. Frank Buescher as well.. :) haha.. but poor me, im only good in dancing talaga.. :)

>> the next day, we had our meeting in the office and afterwards, we headed straight to Villa Antonina Resort for Zafire Luzon's Summer Outing.. located just near my house..hehe.. actually it was just few steps from my house.. :) though it was raining so hard that day and eventhough there's a typhoon, still our summer outing was pushed thru.. Foods and beers were overflowing and also "pulutan" for the boys were present.. Videoke was also present in our villa that time.. and infairness, my singing capability was tested..haha.. maybe that's the reason why the heavy rain lasted 'til the next day.. haha it was all my fault i guess..:D obtw, fyi only.. i didn't hold the microphone for me to sing ha, i just sang with them in chorus.. i love singing though the songs really don't love my voice..hehe.. i just chose some songs for them to sing and for me to sing with them in chorus.. hehe that's how i play my part n the videoke..:) also, eventhough the weather's not good.. we still had the chance to swim.. but i just lasted in the pool for i guess two and a half hours.. the water was gettin' colder kc, and im wearing a 2pc swimsuit that time kaya siguro nilamig ako..hehe.. that's why i decided not to wear only the 2pc and to wear some cover-ups (a sphaggetti strap and a billabong shorts).. hehe..:) then after i took a shower, i just concentrated in eating, txting and singing with the videoke masters (aylwin, deo and sir allan) and of course the boys of zafire who were all busy drinking and thinking cgro how they'll put all those beers in their stomachs.. hehe.. overflowing kc tlg ang beers that night.. :)

oh well, its been a while since my last update on this blog.. hehe sooo toxic kc with demos, lectures and presentations..:) but still i managed to have time for some gimmicks with my friends.. time management is really so important.. :)

last april 30 & may 1.. been to Punta de Uian, Pundaquit San Antonio Zambales with my friends_MeangurLs.. :) this resort is where Marimar and Palos had their shooting last time, in case you guys don't know.. and it's actually the best resort in Pundaquit so far.. others kc are of poor quality service.. and you can only go to Punta de Uian by reservations.. and mind you it's always a fully-booked resort.. super dami kc ng mga pumupunta at gustong magpunta.. so just be patient in scheduling your reservations, kc most of the time puro fully-booked tlg.. im the organizer of our "this year's summer getaway", so i see to it that everything will be okei..:) supposedly, we were planning to go there last april pa.. around 2nd and 3rd week of april, and dapat weekends kso puro fully-booked nga kaya nauwi kme sa april 30 and may 1.. pero good thing nMn kc lahat kme available on that dates.. hehe.. :) and todo negotiate aq s front desk para makadiscount kme, and sa pag island hopping nga nMn.. buti nMn my charms still worked and proven effective.. hehe kinausap p tlg ung resort manager eh.. :)hehe

we rili had a great summer getaway.. we had a chance to go island hopping, to camara and capones island.. :) we went also to the lighthouse of capones island.. when we reached the top of the lihthouse, it was so breathtaking.. the overlooking scenery was great.. although it was tiring to reach the top of the lighthouse, but it was indeed worth it.. :) great experience for us.. :)
obtw, after reaching camara island and on our way to capones.. before we reached capones island, muntik na po kameng mastranded sa aming bangka.. hehe.. ung bangka kc na sinakyan nMn e nasiraan.. and ang masama pa, wala man saming apat ang nakaicp na magdala ng phone..hehe.. pero ung videocam and cameras nMn eh dala dala nMn..hahaha.. buti nlng at naayos ni manong bangkero kundi stranded ang abot nMn sa bangkang un.. at super layo n nMn s resort at malayo p din ang capones nun.. haha.. but God is good.. we're still safe.. :)

..the videos/documentary of our summer getaway will be uploaded soon.. no time for now.. :) mejo tinatamad kc aq.. hehe.. so next time nlng... puerto galera getaway was postponed.. supposedly it was last May 9-11.. but since it was raining so hard in batangas area last friday and that there's a typhoon daw and included ang mindoro, so we postponed it muna.. rili sad.. :( but there's still next time.. so we planned of rescheduling our bookings, but no specific dates yet.. :)

..hmmm, so instead of going to puerto galera.. i watched IronMan nlng with roma-myka a while ago and bought my mom a gift, after ipachange oil c sleek s mazda.. done with the 1st 1000km.. :) Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there.. hehe..

..i still don't know where i would treat my family out for dinner tomorrow.. since it's Mother's Day and on monday, it's my dad's birthday.. so i juz plan to have a dinner treat nlng para sabay nlng and para mejo tipid.. hehe.. :)
