Seasons of Love is back! See "RENT The Musical" in Power Plant Cinema this December!

Web Announcement:

♫♪ Five hundred twenty-five thousand Six hundred minutes, Five hundred twenty-five thousand Moments so dear. ♫♪ Five hundred twenty-five thousand Six hundred minutes.  ♫♪ How do you measure, measure a year?  ♫♪

When I first heard the song Seasons of Love more than a decade ago, there was no doubt that I instantly got hooked with the music of RENT. In fact the said music influenced me to actually liking the musical and lead me to getting its movie in DVD and soundtrack in CD a few years back!  Now, do I need to convince you more?  Hehe.

And, I have a good news for all the rest of RENT fans out there!  Power Plant Cinema, in celebration of its 10th Anniversary is bringing back the award-winning Broadway Musical RENT to Manila.

Turning (road) crisis into (photo) opportunity

Scene Stealer:

On my way back to Makati (and I in half sleep), around 500 meters after we passed the Guiguinto exit of NLEX (North Luzon Expressway), our van suddenly got a flat tire!  Everybody was upset but I guess since I'm not in a hurry, I kept quiet and didn't let myself be dragged by the road crisis.  I looked around and I thought of taking  advantage of the situation by putting my camera in action!

Christmas and the City!

Scene Stealer:

Christmas and the City!  Here's the Belen display for 2010.

Last year, my colleagues and I felt bad when we saw trees were being cut in the Ayala Triangle.  For us, we believed that the place is the only significant thing that kept the balance between modernization and environment in the city and district we love most, Makati City and its Central Business District.

Boys' Toys -- ooops, and Girls' too!


Explore Singapore - Day 6, Part 1

We've always been used to museums that house archaeological artifacts, dioramas and other historical finds, that help keep and enrich a specific cultural heritage.  So when I first heard about the MINT (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys) Museum of Toys in Singapore, I immediately got curious and excited!  Well, that's because I am both passionately serious about history and playfully child like on toy collection! =)

And in the Day 6 of my Explore Singapore mission, my cousin Rose (we actually used to call her Osang when she was a kid hehe), was my guide for the day since Jandy has to go to work that time.  We then explored the rest of the spots that were left in my target list, one of which, of course, is the MINT Museum of Toys.

The Lion, The Treat and The Photos -- The Chronicles of Singapura


Explore Singapore - Day 5, Part 3

Everytime I visit a country or a province in the Philippines, I always see to it that I have a shot and a photo with the place's landmark or where its known for as backdrop.  So my Explore Singapore wouldn't be complete without a photo with the Merlion!

Right after touring Asia in 3 hours (via the Asian Civilizations Museum), we crossed the bridge, took snapshots of the vicinity and the interesting people walking the place. 

"Stop the wedding!"  Is the girl trying to stop the wedding?  =)

Around Asia in 3 Hours!


Explore Singapore - Day 5, Part 2

Multi-armed Quan-Am, 18th Century or later, North Vietnam.  Mahayana Buddhism was brought to Vietnam from China during the early 1st millennium CE, and by the 2nd century CE, Hanoi had become an important center for Buddhism.

I think I have previous posts declaring my passion for history, specifically on ancient civilizations.  I cannot pin point the actual reason but perhaps it may have started with my fascination on stories that dissect the essence of every race or the backdrop of temples, castles and other architectural wonders sans modern technology; or perhaps it's because of the influence by the popular media I grew up with and eventually embraced (e.g. Indiana Jones, The Adventures of Tintin, The National Geographic etc.); or perhaps it's brought up by my thirst for our people's authentic identity through my quest for pre-colonial literature, artifacts and historical data.  And with that, the Asian Civilizations Museum can't be in the list in my Explore Singapore mission.  And here it is, my Around Asia tour in 3 Hours! =)
