Rollin'



Many people are fascinated with british singer Adele. I was surprised that she’s only 23 years old. The golden voice behind chart-topping songs Someone Like You and Rolling in the Deep is now a household name and enjoying success in the international scene.



For the record:


"Rolling in the Deep" has reached number one in eleven countries and top five in several other countries. The song has also become Adele's first number-one song in the U.S., reaching the top spot of four Billboard charts. "Rolling in the Deep" spent seven weeks atop theBillboard Hot 100, the longest-running number-one single of 2011 so far. In July, the video was nominated for sevenMTV Video Music Awards nominations, making it the most nominated music video of the year.[4] The video won three awards: Best EditingBest Cinematography andBest Art Direction.[5]


How about this one, I found a clip of Linkin Park doing a live performance of Rolling in the Deep cover. I would say the band did a good job. Astig!

The Chef's Table



Looking for a good place to eat? Experience the cozy environment and the wide variety of food at The Chef’s Table Restaurant at The Fort. Staff and crews are nice and accommodating (that’s a plus!)



Chef’s Table is owned and operated by Celebrity Chef Bruce Lim. Open daily for lunch and dinner, it's a Filipino modern dining in his own private kitchen. 


It was a nice dinner treat. I was stuffed with some mouth-watering and heavy dishes. Thanks to Chef Vanessa (sa uulitin!)




(Sa sobrang na-enjoy ko yung food, nalimutan ko mga pangalan)



It's exciting how the dishes are presented with a twist.

Lifesaving!



I’ve been to a 3-day training about First Aid and CPR conducted by the Philippine Red Cross. It was sponsored by our office and I was lucky to be chosen as part of the team. I heard may kamahalan raw kung sa labas ka kukuha ng training.





Though I enjoyed the activities, I never thought it was that challenging especially the actual presentation. I have no any background in the medical field and giving cpr is a very delicate situation. You have to ensure you follow the rule and know the proper way of giving the aid to at least help the victim while the Physician is not yet around. Buti na lang I passed the exam kahit papano.


It’s a good learning experience. I’ll be more practicing safety and healthy living and remember that Prevention is always Better than Cure!

Remembering 9/11



This is the first time I heard this heartfelt song and I must say, truly a very strong and emotional one.



Country superstar Alan Jackson says it best himself -- "I'm not a real political man" -- in his most famous ballad. Indeed, the Georgia artist's songwriting has centered on the traditional country voice of everyday working people, leading ordinary lives.

The song he penned several weeks after Sept. 11, 2001 -- "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" -- was an emotional example of that tradition, but it catapulted Jackson's career by articulating what thousands of other not "real political" men and women felt and thought on that day.
Across the country, listeners nodded in unison to Jackson's lyrics, which somehow captured the multitude of emotions a nation felt after one terrible morning:






Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or working on some stage in L.A.?
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Risin' against that blue sky?
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry?

Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know?
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below?
Did you burst out in pride for the red, white, and blue
And the heroes who died just doin' what they do?
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters?
I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

On Her Day!




When nobody seems to care and the world becomes uncertain
Lightning might hit the ground, earthquake can shake the nation
Don’t let the fear step in for I’m here to stay
Together we can survive the trail, we fly and sail


Wishing her a Happy Birthday!
