Day 05: A song that reminds you of someone

30 Day Song Challenge
song that reminds me of someone: Grow Old With You by Adam Sandler

Ang kanta ni ex sa akin. Still remember the kulitan at mga asukal habang nakikinig sa kantang ito ngunit wala ng saysay at hanggang reminisce na lang dahil naglahong parang bula si ex. Even though we ended up badly, still holds no grudge to this song, salamat sa (500) Days of Summer. Tatapusin ko na 'to bago pa mag-emo nanaman ako :D

Day 04: A song that makes you sad

30 Day Song Challenge
song that makes me sad: Sandali Lang by Silent Sanctuary

Pagpacensyahan na po ang video dahil wala akong mahanap na matino sa youtube. Ang kanta para sa mga heartbroken na umaasa pa din at hindi makamove on na tulad ko, hehe.. Ilang buwan din nagasgas ang album na 'to sa aking ipod dati dahil sa paulit-ulit-ulit na pakikinig at page-emo. Best played during umuulan at ikaw ay nakadungaw sa bintana na nakatitig sa kawalan.

This song is part of their second album, Fuchsiang Pag-ibig, which was released in 2007. It includes the hits Rebound, Ikaw Lamang, Kundiman and Summer Song. You may visit their official website here for updates on Silent Santuary band.

Day 03: A song that makes you happy

30 Day Song Challenge
song that makes me happy: Push by Avril Lavigne

This song is part of her latest album "Goodbye Lullaby" which was released this year. Been an Avril fan since her 'Complicated' song came out in 2002. What I liked most about her is the punk rock style that she bring in to her music wherein listeners would easily recognize that its her own signature plus the necktie and tank-top combination of clothing. But new album now, as I may say, gives us a new side of her. It still has that Avril-rock-angst but more on a pop-hip-attitude, still I like her :)

Here's the track listing of her "Goodbye Lullaby" album:
1. Black Star
2. What the Hell
3. Push
4. Wish You Were Here
5. Smile
6. Stop Standing There
7. I Love You
8. Everybody Hurts
9. Not Enough
10. 4 Real
11. Darlin
12. Remember When
13. Goodbye
14. Alice (extended version)

Day 02: Your least favourite song

30 Day Song Challenge
my least fave song: Time Stands Still by The All American Rejects

Nahirapan akong pumili ng least fave song ko dahil halos lahat ay most fave ko yata. The All American Rejects is one of my fave alternative band at ang pinakagusto kong song nila ay It Ends Tonight kaya naman itong Time Stands Still na ang least fave ko. Been a fan of them since they release their self-titled debut album in 2003 which I do have a CD copy na ngayon ay nawawala na dahil hindi ibinalik sa'kin at nakalimutan ko na din kung sinong may sala, good thing na download na uso ngayon at hindi ko na kailangan pang bumili ng CD ulet. It was also thru MTV also that I became aware of this band where their first music video was shown (Swing, Swing).
Here's the track listing:
1. My Paper Heart
2. Your Star
3. Swing, Swing
4. Time Stands Still
5. One More Sad Song
6. Why Worry
7. Don't Leave Me
8. Too Far Gone
9. Drive Away
10. Happy Endings

11. The Last Song
Enjoy :)

Day 01: Your favourite song

30 Day Song Challenge
my all-time favorite song: Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls

First heard it on the 'City of Angels' movie and it instantly became one of my favorites. I was still in high school when this song became famous and I never knew the Goo Goo Dolls back then, siguro I was not into rock/alternative genre dati kasi puro pop bands pa uso nung 90's. But after hearing this song, I was eager to look forward to their other songs and the MTV channel was the one that introduce them to me. I was then hooked to their catchy rock sound and cant get enough playing their song such over and over again. Other tracks that I like was Here is Gone, Slide, Big Machine and Name. Their "Greatest Hits Volume One" album is sure keeper to all those Goo Goo Dolls fans and to those who aren't, I'm sure that you will love this also.

Here's the track listing:
1. Let Love In
2. Dizzy
3. Here Is Gone
4. Slide
5. Name (New Version)
6. Stay With You
7. Before It's Too Late
8. Broadway
9. Feel The Silence
10. Better Days
11. Big Machine
12. Black Balloon
13. Sympathy

14. Iris
Hope you'll enjoy it too..

karmin cover

buzz worthy: Karmin

another youtube sensation that is making waves in the music scene. first heard of karmin when a friend of mine posted their video of super bass, their own cover of the nicki minaj song. i was then hooked at how the female vocalist raps effortlessly. so i did a little youtubing and found out their other cover songs. their cover song for the chris brown's "look at me now" made a 21,244,580 views as of this writing and still counting. they also appeared on the ellen show because of this cover song.

can't get enough of them, just search @KarminMusic on youtube. enjoy!

montemar beach resort

puyat sa company outing...

kahapon ginanap ang summer outing ng company namin at mabuti namang hindi kami nabagyo unlike sa first batch na kasabay ni chedeng. it was held at montemar beach club sa bagac, bataan which is a 2 or 3 hour ride from our office in ortigas. i was able to take a few pictures of the venue (konti lang kasi ine-enjoy ko talaga yun outing na naging 'pahinga away from work') and here they are:
the beach
clear waters, buti na lang hindi ako nakaligo dahil makati daw sa dagat
tree house na may hanging bridge, sarap maginuman dito :D
looks easy enough to cross? try mo. hehehe..
a view from the top of the tree house, malawak un resort na to
another view from the tree house, yun green pool yan
videoke sa beachfront, malapit lang sa dagat kaya pwedeng pwedeng lunurin agad ang mga singers na masakit sa eardrums kumanta :D
they do have other amenities aside from the videoke that you can try pagbored ka nang lumublob sa dagat. just check their website here.
and my favorite, sunset. pasensya na sa quality ng mga pictures, camera phone lang gamit ko e :)
hindi ko na nahintay na lumubog ang araw dahil may activities pang nakahain ang company namin.
this 2-day summer outing was fun but unfortunately, diretso sa shift ako kaya bangag sa puyat at hangover ako ngayon. anyways, its all worth it :)
