Charice and Pia will duet on American Idol Finale


Are we going to get a double dose of Charice this week? We are still digesting Charice/Sunshine's performance on Glee finale and news has it that Charice will be doing a duet with American Idol reject Pia Toscano in the American Idol finale tonight!

This has started as a rumor when Pia expressed her wish to do a duet with Charice and Charice has replied the same. There are surprise performances and guests on the AI finale and netizens are going crazy about this rumor until yesterday. However, the rumor has finally become a fact when according to teen.com and clevvermusic, a reporter from Fox said that Charice will be singing with Pia on the finale which will be aired live tonight. Let's cross our fingers till tonight's finale.

Missed Charice on Glee Finale? Watch Here

I'm so proud of Charice in Glee's season 2 finale! In her first appearance in Glee 2 episode 1, we all know that her voice is so great however, her acting was not good, but in the last night's episode, Nationals, I've seen an improvement on her acting. I'm thinking that she is definitely taking acting lessons as she is also filming her upcoming movie, Here Comes the Boom with Salma Hayek. 

What I didn't like though is her dress and hairstyle in Glee's finale episode. She looked so chubby in the blue puffy dress, and since she has round face, her hairstyle didn't complement her too. Well, her singing of As Long As You're There filled up what's missing in her dress and hair styles. 

By the way, if you haven't seen the Glee's Finale, below is the clip where Charice appeared. Rachel and Sunshine once again met in the girl's room and Sunshine and Vocal Adrenaline's performance on stage. (compliment to for the upload)

As Long As You're There 

Lyrics :
Hmm
Mmm
All my life
I've waited for the right
Moment to let you know
I don't wanna let you go oh

But now I've realized
There's just no perfect time
To confess how I feel
This much I know is real

So I refuse to
Waste one more second without you
Knowing my heart

Baby cause I don't
Need anything else but your love
Nothing but you means a thing to me
I'm incomplete

When you're not there
Holding me, touching me, I swear
All of the rest could just disappear
And I wouldn't even care
As long as you're there

Take these words
Don't let them go unheard
This is me reaching out
I hope you can hear it now

Cause baby my heart's at stake
Take it
It's yours to break

I'd rather try and lose
Than keep this love from you
Yeaah

So I refuse to
Waste one more second
Without you
Knowing my heart

Baby cause I don't
Need anything else but your love
Nothing but you means a thing to me
I'm incomplete

When you're not there
Holding me touching me I swear
All of the rest could just disappear
And I wouldn't even care
As long as you're there

Each day and night
That I've kept this a secret
It'd killed me
It's time
To share what I feel inside

Sunshine with Vocal Adrenaline:
I don't
Need anything else but your love
Nothing but you means a thing to me
I'm incomplete

When you're not there
Holding me touching me I swear
All of the rest could just disappear
And I wouldn't even care
As long as you're there
(Vocal Adrenaline: As long as you're there)
As long as you're there

Fast and Furious 5 and Jollibee

The whole family had a great time last weekend. We went to the city and went to the only movie theater the shows 3D movies, unfortunately, there was not 3D movie being shown, the Kung Fu Panda 2 will be next week, so we ended up watching Fast and Furious 5. The small kids weren't so happy about it but the grown-ups enjoyed the fast cars and action-packed movie. I've seen the previous installment of the the Fast and the Furious and this one is most likely the same as before, the team up of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, and just like the previous movies, they up again against the law.

After the movie, it was the kids' time, so instead of pizza, we headed to Jollibee and had some burgers and fries. Then we roam around the city and some malls. It was a good weekend.

Before It Explodes by Charice

Pacquiao and RH Bill


Just after his successful fight in Las Vegas against Mosley, Manny Pacquiao went back home and made a statement about his stand on the Reproductive Health Bill. 

Pacquiao said that he is anti-RH bill because he is a religious person and he has fear in God that he does not want to oppose God's teachings. I wonder whether he was a religious person and did not oppose God's teachings when he had a relationship with a girl and  had a baby outside marriage. I know that I should not bring this up since Pacquiao is just a man who commit sins, but at least he should not use this excuse to influence people about the RH bill.

Although I agree that corruption makes the people suffer but that is beside the point. Aside from corruption, the rapid increase of population is another reason why Filipinos are living in poverty. 

I respect Pacquiao's opinion on the RH bill, but as a congressman, he is the representative of his people in Saranggani. I wonder whether his stand is also the stand of his people. I wonder whether he held a dialogue with his constituents about the issue. Before Pacquiao, a world-famous boxer and A congressman, would declare his stand on Reproductive Health bill, he must listen to his people first.

Another Reason to Breastfeed Your Baby

Although there were already many known benefits of breastfeeding, there are still new mothers who are reluctant to breastfeed their babies. Aside from having lower rates of infections for babies, and mothers who breastfeed have a reduced risk of breast cancer, there is a new found benefit of breastfeeding. According to the recent study called the Millennium Cohort Study conducted by British researchers from the universities of Oxford, Essex, York and from University College London to babies born in 2000-2001, they found that babies who are breastfed are less likely to grow into children with behavior problems by the time they reach the age of five than those who receive formula milk.

As a mother, I know that there are many kids who throw tantrums specially in public places in which the parents have difficulty to deal with. I am lucky that none of my kids showed behavioral problems when they were young. Maybe that is because I breastfed all my kids, so although there were some usual difficulty in raising kids, but they weren't serious compared to others which I've seen in some public places such as restaurants, malls, and church. I hope that this recent discovery of another benefit of breastfeeding will encourage mothers to breastfeed their babies.

Josh Groban's New Album: Kanye West Tweets!

I saw this funny video of Josh Groban while searching in Youtube for video of Manny Pacquiao's guestings in Jimmy Kimmel show. The video is a plug of Josh Groban's new album, and guess what? His album is about Kanye West tweets.

Kanye West is known for his controversial and sometimes idiotic tweets, and he tweets a lot. In the video, Josh Groban sings the tweets of Kanye West. It's really funny. Watch it!

The Pacquiao vs Mosley fight will be at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, May 7 (Sunday, May 8 in Manila). Manny Pacquiao will be defending his WBO Welterweight Title versus former three-division world champion Shane Mosley. Whether you are a Pacquiao or a Mosley fan, or just an average boxing fan, you would not want to miss the fight. The match can be watched live on the tube or online.

Giant Halo-Halo Festival in Iloilo


Just in time for the scorching sun, a village in Iloilo celebrated Halo-halo Festival with of course the Giant Halo-halo. According to abs-cbnnews.com, "the villagers used large proportions of the following ingredients: five blocks of ice, three sacks of "kalamay" (a sticky confection made of sweet glutinous rice and grated coconut), and 10 basins of "sago" or tapioca, gelatin, sweet potato, and coconut, along with more than 200 tins of sweet milk to complete the giant dessert. The ingredients were mixed with several large wooden spoons, and funneled into plastic glasses so that more than 1,000 children and residents could enjoy the icy treat."

Oh, I wished I was there too, halo-halo is my favorite and eating it with so many people just adds the fun.

A Weekend with Thor

The kids had a good weekend watching the movie, Thor, a superhero movie which they had been waiting for long time. The movie is based on the comic character, Thor, from Marvel comics. Thor was released in 3D and 3D IMAX but since the movie theater in our place are not 3D, the kids watch it in regular screening. After they came home, they said that the movie was good and a worth to watch. I just wished that they could have watched it in 3D, it would have been different experience. I'll try to get them to a 3D cinema when the last Harry Potter movie or Pirates of Carribean comes out.

Watch the trailer of Thor movie below:

Osama Bin Laden Killed? Really?!

 It seems impossible to hear the news that the man named world's #1 terrorist, Osama Bin Laden is dead. According to the report, Bin Laden, who was responsible to the 9/11 attack in USA, was killed in a military operation headed by American military forces and Central Intelligence Agency in Abbotabd, Pakistan.

The Americans rejoiced as President Barack Obama delivered the news to them and party was thrown on the street. It seems that the decade war on terrorism has finally paid off. However, I know that their will be inquiring minds who will doubt on the authenticity of the news. Is Osama Bin Laden really dead? Let's wait for few more days and there will be many theories about the existence and death of Bin Laden. How about you, do you believe that Osama bin Laden is killed?

Pope John Paul II: A step closer to being Saint


Filipinos are excited, here in the Philippines and abroad, as today, May 1 is Pope John Paul II's beatification, which is the last step before sainthood, in a ceremony in St Peter's Square.

The late Pope John Paul II was known to be charismatic and closer to the people that he was dubbed Pope of the People. He twice visited the Philippines, first when he was not yet a pope, and the second during the celebration of the World Youth Day. Filipinos just really love Pope John Paul II and he is really close to the hearts of the Filipinos.

I remember my Aunt who told me her experience when the Pope visited Legazpi City. She said that it was a hot day, but when the Pope passed, there was a cloud shading them and the air became cool. She said she felt a very calm feeling inside, a really unforgettable moment of her life. How I wished I also personally meet Pope John Paul II, but of course, that's impossible now. However, I'm happy that he is in the last step of becoming a saint. Pope John Paul II really deserves to be a saint, he is a Saint.
