"One Day" by Charice Pempengco (Lyrics & MV)

I saw this video from here and at first try I knew I'm gonna love it. The video was very teen oriented (I know. I'm not a teen anymore) & inspiring. I got inspired by the classroom setting (you know I love those?) plus the scene where Charice was dancing. It was nice to see her confidently strut her stuff out there.

Way to go girl!

Here's the Lyrics which I got from here :

One day (x3)

[Charice - Verse 1]

They're not gonna keep me down
They're not gonna shut me out
They're gonna do what they do, I'll do me
I'm going against the crowd
I'm drowning out the doubt
They're gonna do what they do, I'll do
Something original, be unforgettable
They're gonna know my name


One day, make you a believer
One day, got this all I need is
One day, don't try to tell me I can't
Right now, I'm running the future
Watchout, won't stop I'm a mover
One day, you're gonna know who I am
Oh when I'm high and free
It's not fate, wait and see, One day

[Charice - Verse 2]

I've been afraid to fall,
Too much for something more
But now that I see that it's mine,
I'll take it
Just go ahead and try,
You're not gonna change my mind
There's no such thing as too late



One day, make you a believer
One day, got this all I need is
One day, don't try to tell me I can't
Right now, I'm running the future
Watchout, won't stop I'm a mover
One day, you're gonna know who I am
Oh when I'm high and free
It's not fate, wait and see


I'm on a mission, no longer listening
To anyone that says don't try
Sometimes you feel it deep in your spirit
It's like a fire that won't die
One day
Wait and see
One day
Just wait and see it


One day, make you a believer
One day, got this all I need is
One day, don't try to tell me I can't
Right now, I'm running the future
Watchout, won't stop I'm a mover
One day, you're gonna know who I am
Oh when I'm high and free
It's not fate, wait and see, One day

One day, One day, One day, One day, One day

..and lastly here's the video. Check it out!

Online Ukay Store Plans

I've just finished blog hopping and I came across different online ukay stores which really motivated me to continue my online ukay plans. Since I've finished school already, I will be free for most weekends. So right now I'm just really excited to start this business. I asked a friend if he wanted to join in since he has a really good camera. He said yes but I'm not sure how interested he was. I hope he is. But anyway I just really want to push through with this plan. I'll start little by little. That's why I'm making this post. I want to list down the things I have to do to start.

1. Continue researching about different stores' strategies (mode of payments, courier & all)

2. Buy this black fitting mannequin. I already contacted this seller from FB and I already got her phone (number). It costs around 850 pesos.

Here's how it looks like:

3. Go to different courier companies and ask about delivery fees.

4. Buy UKAY clothes this weekend.

Dream Recall

I've read this article on yahoo that in order for you to tap into your dreams, try having a pen & paper beside your bed.

These past few nights I've been having bizarre dreams. Some people I knew from the past occurred and suddenly became a part of my life. So I'm doing this post to recall as many dreams as I can.

image is not mine.

1. I forgot the date. -- In the dream, my former Science professor kind of insulted me in front of my classmates. The setting was in a classroom. I got a low score on a test and he mentioned it in front of everybody. I don't know much about the specific details. But one thing is very vivid. It's how I felt that time. I felt humiliated.

2. I've dreamed of a friend named Kuya Mar. I can't remember the details.

So far eto pa lang. I'll try to update this when I remember some of my dreams again.

Saan Kaya

I want to make my days fruitful and productive. I want to justify my existence. So I'm now looking for a charity or NGO to volunteer for.

San kaya meron? May alam ka ba? Share mo naman. Yung around QC lang ah?

Update: Makalipas ang ilang minuto nakita ko itong website ng Tahanan Sta. Luisa. It's just located in Diliman QC so I hope I can really participate in their programs. I've already sent an email. I hope to hear from them soon.

I'd like to make use of whatever God has given me so I really want to pursue this. I don't have money to donate. Maybe I can be a tutor/teacher to those poor girls. At the same time I can somehow widen my horizon, gain experience or anything.

I'm excited. Help me God!

Like it!

One of the things I love about life is yogurt. Yes. The sour sticky thing some people hate. I specially like the Nestle Fruit Selection yogurt strawberry flavor. I'm actually eating it right now.

Gusto mo?

Childhood Addiction

I heard my supervisor singing this Japanese song which really awakened the kid in me. It was the theme song of one of my favorite anime back in my childhood days, the Magic Knights Rayearth. The title of the song is yuzurenai negai by Naomi Tamura.

Let's listen to it here:

What more is a better way to relive your childhood obsession than listen to songs? It's like awakening the 10-year old in you. Yeeee!! I feel so young again!!!

The Perks of a Latecomer(?)

Well I'm now watching Twilight. Yeah the first of the four film series and I'm just starting t o appreciate everything..starting from the lines, the story, the plot. I actually watched it in the theater but I spoiled everything by then bringing with me that bag full of what we call expectation.

So here I am again....being so excited and giddy from what other's found fascinating few months or years back.

And my favorite part was the scene when they were playing baseball. Who wouldn't love that?

Now it feels so surreal watching it the second time..and feeling giddy and having it all for myself. Yeah I'm that selfish.

Being Late

I'm watching "A Walk To Remember" now here in my station at work. I know it's been years already since it was first shown. Now I know why people raved about it. I was always wondering why they were that fanatic and enthusiastic.

This is what actually I like about 'being late'. All their enthusiasm has already died down while I'm just starting to like it. Even in movies. I don't keep myself up to date of what's new and what's hot. I always keep the 'looking-forward-to-feeling' by refraining myself. And the eccentric side of me is always gratified with that.

My favorite line so far is.....

when the two leads are about to watch the stars in the cemetery...

Jamie: "Are you trying to seduce me?"

Guy: "Are you seduceable?"


I can be witty din pala sometimes. [yeeeeeee]

Thoughts Keyboarded

I guess my writing skill (kung meron man dati) has declined. I haven't been blogging for the past few months. I really missed this but I just couldn't get myself to start keyboarding my thoughts. But here I am. Starting again little by little.

There are so many things in my mind that want to burst out. About my perspective about different kinds of things.

I hope I'm back for good.

Something to Ponder About My Sister

I've posted here several times how my relationship was with my 'ate'. It wasn't totally bad. But disputes and arguments with her were inevitable. I was the breadwinner for an older sister and a younger brother. At the same time, I was juggling thesis, work and bills. A social life was never even an option. It was very hard on my part. Seeing them have all the free time they wanted while there I was, a sleep/social life-deprived 20 something year old NBSB. I felt like 'it' had taken something away from me. I always blamed my sister but still I couldn't help myself but still help her find a job.

Fortunately, she found a job she had always wanted. It wasn't a downhill struggle. She had to cope with a lot of rejections but she was strong. Now she's starting to regain her lost honor. She is studying while working. Somehow she thanks me for my 'insults'. She said somehow it made her stronger and struggle more. I am happy that in a way though in a bad way, I served as a catalyst.

Now of course she is still the eldest among siblings, but I play that role (financially) for the mean time. But I am genuinely happy that she's starting to take the pieces little by little.

By the way, enough of the drama. I've been thinking what provoked me to write this post. And I remember one incident where I think was a great insult to her. It was during my vacation in my hometown (Sorsogon). When I was about to leave for a ride back to Manila together with 'ate', my parents knew that I had no extra money for any kinds of emergencies. They were giving me some amount but I refused knowing that they'd be penniless again. They insisted but I strongly refused again. Then 'ate' took it which made my parents take it back and offer to give it to me again. That to me is an example of a gesture that my parents favor me way more than my sister. And I could just feel 'ate's' pain that time. I've only realized it just recently. I don't know why just memories of yesterday are only appreciated when it's already too late.

It's always a REWIND for me. I never get to enjoy the moment, which makes me really sad. But somehow I'm thankful that I remembered.
