Maria

I have first heard this song from the movie 200 lbs. Beauty.. And honestly I love this song a lot. Here is the Korean version:

Singer: Kim Ah Jung

cha chigum shija-khae
chogum-sshwil ttokob-ke
uhh… turyowo-hajima

pyolchyojin nunape
cho tae-yangi ki-reul bichwo
uhh… chol-tae-momchujima

Maria ave Maria
cho hwim-kurum kkeut-kaji nara
Maria ave Maria
gochin-paddowin sang-gwa-nobshi

cha chigum shija-khae
chogum-sshwil ttokob-ke
uhh… chol-tae-momchujima

Maria ave Maria
cho hwim-kurum kkeut-kaji nara
maria ave maria
gochin-paddowin sang-gwa-nobshi

Maria

mamchwo-borin shim-jang chon-chega
koncha-bulsu-ob-shi ttwi-yo-wa

(Repeat 2x) Maria ave Maria
cho hwim-kurum kkeut-kaji nara
Maria ave Maria
chojin-paddowin sang-gwa-nobshi

And now here is the English Version:

She moves like she don’t care
Smooth as silk
Cool as air
Oooh it makes you wanna’ cry
She doesn’t know your name and your heart beats like a subway train
Oooh it makes you wanna’ die
Oooh don’t you wanna’ take her?
Wanna’ make her all your own?
Maria
You’ve gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Latina
Ave Maria
A million and one candlelight’s
I’ve seen this thing before
In my best friends and the boy next door
Fool for love and full of fire
Won’t come in from the rain
She’s oceans running down the drain
Blue as ice and desire
Don’t you wanna’ make her?
Oooh don’t you wanna’ take her home?
Maria
You’ve gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Latina
Ave Maria
A million and one candlelight’s
Oooh don’t you wanna’ break her?
Oooh don’t you wanna’ take her home?
She walks like she don’t care
You wanna’ take her everywhere
Oooh it makes you wanna cry
She’s like a millionaire
Walking on imported air
Oooh it makes you wanna’ die
Maria
You’ve gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Latina
Ave Maria
A million and one candlelight’s
Maria
You’ve gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Regina
Ave Maria
A million and one candlelight’s
Maria
You’ve gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Regina
Ave Maria
A million and one candlelight’s
Maria
You’ve gotta see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Regina
Ave Maria
A million and one candlelight’s

Tarlac

While we had our vacation at Clark, Pampanga, we have decided to try and see this new restaurant there. I saw this restaurant one morning while I am on my way to work.

So we headed from Pampanga to Tarlac, to see and experience this unique restaurant by ourselves. The following pictures will show you how great this restaurant is. Not just their place but as well their gimmicks, foods and their friendly crews.

Front of Isdaan Village at Gerona, Tarlac.Gerona is one of the 17 towns of the province of Tarlac. It is bounded on the north by Paniqui; on the east by the Pura; on the south by Tarlac City (the provincial capital); and on the west by Santa Ignacia. The town is 73 km. from San Fernando City, the regional center; 50 km from Clark Special Economic Zone in Angeles City; and 139 km north of Metro Manila.

The floating restaurant, like a small village at daylight.

The floating restaurant, like a small village at night.

Yes, these Coy fish swim beneath the floating restaurant. However, I was surprised that they also eat sisig. Yeah I know I shouldn’t be feeding them with pork but with their sizes, I am sure they can still digest it. 😀

The other things you can see at Isdaan Village are these huge statues. Very tribal isn’t it.

You can wish on this hand.. They believe that it will come true.

One of their game. You have to cross this 3 inches wide bridge with a bucket of water. There are huge shells along the way and to add it up, the water that will hit you. Once you cross this bridge and will be able to go back, you will win one bucket of Fish for free.. But if you fail, you will fall in this 10 feet deep water.. 😉

They call this game Ungoy-Ungoyan.. (Monkey-Monkey). When you pass these five monkey without getting wet, you will also win I pail of fish. This is a two player game. The other one, waiting to get wet in front of those monkeys and the other one, trying to figure out which bulb is connected to those monkey and try to avoid it. There were like 20 water faucet to choose from so be very careful. Like when we played this one, my partner got wet. Ooops. Sorry! 😀

They said when you wish here, it will be granted.. Hmm… I hope I actually wish though.

Your babies can ride with them.. 🙂 I didn’t know sheep can be used as transport now 😀

And most of all, their main attraction, the Taksiapo wall. Here you can throw plates, TV, glasses, name it they have it. Whenever you eat at their resto, depends on how much, they will give you free plates to break. Yeah, you will experience this break the plates in this place.

Until my next travel.. 🙂

Wait for you

I never felt nothing in the world like this before
Now I’m missing you and I’m wishing you would come back through my door
Why did you have to go?
You could have let me know; so now I’m all alone

Girl you could have stayed but you wouldn’t give me a chance
With you not around it’s a little bit more than I can stand
And all my tears they keep runnin’ down my face
Why did you turn away?

So why does your pride make you run and hide
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it’s a lie what you keep inside
This is not how you want it to be

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don’t know what else I can do
Don’t tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I find it just ain’t true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I’ll wait for you

Been a long time since you called me
(How could you forget about me)
You gotta be feeling crazy
How can you walk away
(When) Everything stays the same
I just can’t do it baby

What will it take to make you come back
Girl I told you what it is and it just ain’t like that
Why can’t you look at me?
You’re still in love with me
Don’t leave me crying

Baby why can’t we just start all over again
Get it back to the way it was
If you give me a chance I can love you right
But you’re telling me it won’t be enough

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don’t know what else I can do
Don’t tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I find it just ain’t true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I’ll wait for you

So why does your pride make you run and hide
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it’s a lie what you’re keeping inside
That is not how you want it to be

Baby I will wait for you
Baby I will wait for you
If it’s the last thing I do

Baby I will wait for you
Cause I don’t know what else I can do
Don’t tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I find it just ain’t true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I’ll wait for you
I’ll be waiting …

Watch this video. He is so great. Bravo!

Iya dire sa Cebu!

Oh well I almost forgot to upload some pictures during 5 day trip to Cebu. It was actually a business trip but I don’t think it was a work related trip though. I remember the line for Enya’s song “Oronico flow”. It mentioned the name of this province. I wonder if she was ever been to this province.

From Bissau to Palau – in the shade of Avalon,
From Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony,
From Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
From Bali to Cali – far beneath the Coral Sea.

See in this stanza if you will listen to the video above, it mentions the name of this province. I wonder did she even visited Philippines before. Enya is one of my favorite singer. Believe it or not!Often called the “Queen City of the South” and the Seat of Christianity in the Philippines, Cebu is the country’s oldest city. Exploring Cebu City, one encounters a rich historic past. Cebuanos are extremely proud of their cultural and historical heritage, a legacy which has endured thru the centuries from the time the great explorer Ferdinand Magellan first planted the cross on Cebu’s shore.

On April 8, 1521 Ferdinand Magellan arrived in Cebu and discovered the island for the Europeans thus opening a route that would be followed by sea traders until today. Magellan planted a cross in the island that would become Cebu’s most famous landmark.

Anyways, below are some pictures we took while we are in Cebu.

We arrived at Mactan Airport around 10 a.m. We are really excited to go to the hotel.

Yeah, we stayed at Waterfront Lahug. Very nice hotel.. I just simply love it.

View from my room.

The Garden.

This the painting on their ceiling. Very creative. You will also see an old globe painting there showing where is Philippines there. Before it was known as Filipinas, named after the King of Spain, King Felipe.

Magellan’s Cross.Magellan’s Cross is a Christian cross planted by Portuguese and Spanish explorers as ordered by Ferdinand Magellan upon arriving in Cebu in the Philippines on April 21, 1521.

This cross is housed in a small chapel next to the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño on Magallanes Street (Magallanes being the Spanish name of Magellan), just in front of the city hall of Cebu City. A sign below the cross claims that the original cross is encased inside the wooden cross that is found in the center of this chapel. This is to protect the original cross from people who chipped away parts of the cross for sourvenir purposes or in the belief that the cross possesses miraculous powers. Some people, however, believe that the original cross had been destroyed or had disappeared after Magellan’s death, and the cross is a replica that was planted there by the Spaniards after they successfully colonized the Philippines.

Magellan’s Cross is a symbol of Cebu City and the chapel’s image can be found in its city seal. It is also seen as the symbol of Roman Catholicism in the Philippines.

Colon Street. Known as the oldest street in the Philippines, Colon Street was built by the Spaniards during the time of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. Named after Cristobal Colon (Christopher Columbus), it is the heart of downtown Cebu, a glittering area by night lined with movie houses, restaurants, department stores, and other business establishments.

Fort San Pedro. Close to the Pier Area in Cebu City you will find the historic Fort San Pedro. It was founded by the Spaniards after they have settled in Cebu and its ancient walls have endured until today. Nowadays it hosts a museum which offers insight into the old times. You can walk through the wide attached park and have a look over to the piers to watch incoming ships like the Spaniards used to do over the centuries.

Taoist Temple. Located at Beverly Hills in Cebu City, on of the areas where the more wealthy people choose to live, the Taoist Temple overlooks the whole City Area and beyond. Even Mactan Island is clearly visible from there. As it is a bit elevated the air is fresher and you are above the city smog. This temple preserve the teachings of Lao-Tse the 600 B.C Chinese philosopher. People come from far to request a view into the future by the monks. In any case its a place to mediate and to relax.

You’ll never walk alone

When you walk through the storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on, through the wind
Walk on, through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone

Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone

Facts of life

* When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one which has been opened for us.
* Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
* Always put yourself in others’ shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too.
* The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
* Happiness lives for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.
* The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
* When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.
* What’s meant to be will always find a way and if ever you’ve found that way, do something to make it happen, never let go ’cause not all that’s meant to be will always turn into reality.
* If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.
* Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
* Life holds no promises to what will come our way. It makes no guarantee as to what we will have. It just gives us time to make choices and take chances.
* Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.
* Somewhere there is someone that dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember it’s true, someone somewhere is thinking of you.
* Life is short, don’t waste time worrying about what people think of you. Hold on to the ones that care, in the end they will be the only ones there.
* We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
* Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
* Remember: Whatever happens, happens for a reason.
