Munting hiling sa aking kaarawan....


Nitong mga nakalipas na linggo, medyo sinisipag akong magsulat (kabaliktaran ito). Ang daming tumatakbo sa utak ko na pwedeng isulat. Pero hanggang draft lang sila, at ayokong ipost. Wala lang, wala kasi ako sa mood. Pangalawa buziness din ako sa paggawa ng pera. Dahil sa sobrang abala ko, nakalimutan ko na nalalapit na ang aking kaarawan. Oo, tama ka. May birthday din ako noh! Pero hindi ko sasabihin kung kelan, maghihibernate kasi ako sa araw na iyon (lol).

Minsan naiisip ko, madadagdagan na naman ang edad ko at tatanda. Haitz... feeling ko bawat taon dumadami ang wrinkles ko.. choz! Pero ganun pa man, exciting ang bawat taon ko. Paiba-iba ang feeling, parang weather-weather lang. Minsan masaya, minsan malungkot at kung minsan may pait. Kaya, taon-taon marami akong bagay na natutunan. Hindi lang sa sarili ko, pati na rin sa ibang tao.

At dahil diyan, ito ang simpleng request ko sa iyo. Di naman ako naghahangad ng anumang regalo mula sa iyo.  Ang gusto ko lang naman ay Picture Greet sa kaarawan ko (xenxa gaya-gaya lang :p). Maari kayong mag-email sa akin sa hanggang October 2, 2011. Hihintayin ko ang pagbati mo!

Arigato Gozaimasu!

Disney is coming to town!

It was year 1990, the generation where the Disney love story is entering in the lime light for me, and I became a huge fan of Disney Princesses. I was a girl then with earnest sweetness of heart believe of "Happily ever after" and "Prince Charming". That everyone deserves a true love and hapiness. I am also immersive believer of their... good quote...


"Have faith in your dreams, and someday, your rainbow will come smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true" **(from the movie Cinderella).

I almost cry when, Simba's father (Mufasa) died in The Lion King Movie. I realized in these movie that you should not be greedy in the power. That accepts what you have and be yourself. That you should have no worries (Hakuna Matata), cause God will help us and the good will always prevail.

"Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant, to the leaping antelope" (from The Lion King Movie)

The big help that Disney characters gave me, is the inspiration they shared. I learn to draw and paint and become art lover. Each day as I watched these Disney movies it makes me want to explore more and move in my own pace. So, I study drawing techniques and color theory, and how to use specially oil, acrylics, watercolors, gouache, charcoal, pastels, pencil and that sort of thing. Even up to this moment I'm on going process and I know in my heart there is always room for improvement, and there is always something new to learn like the Disney Princesses quote follow your heart and it will become true... and express your deepest feeling and thoughts from it.

(I Draw this, when I was in high school)

Disney movies are known also, in their Original Soundtrack and how classical they were made. Most popular Disney Princess movies back in these years perhaps, make their little audiences fell in love with these beautiful recognize images with a faint tang of nostalgia. Some seller of this unfading movies still use this cover, which I think is one of the best they have, because the blue coloring is beautiful and lovely princesses appears to be more real. I feel that it captures the feel of the movie beautifully and is a spiffy poster to boot.
(My favorite Disney Songs)

I remember when I was in grade school. I kept singing the song of Beauty and the Beast (sung by Celine Dion), A Whole New World (sung by Brand Kane and Lea Salonga), Colors of the wind (sung by Vanessa Williams) and Reflection (sung by Christina Aguillera). Until now, I have a collection of Disney songs in my MP3, listening randomly in time I miss my childhood days.

Mickey Mouse and his band of friends, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will be performing in a music mash-up of mega proportions  as Disney Live! comes to Manila and Cebu City for the first time with its newest stage show Mickey’s Music Festival.  Concert goers will hear greatest hits from the blockbuster movies, AladdinThe Little Mermaid, and Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story remixed to rock, pop, reggae, hip-hop, jazz and country, among other jams.  Produced by Feld Entertainment, Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival brings the biggest concert experience to hit live family entertainment. This show is presented in the Philippines by Vivre Fort Entertainment Inc., Guess Kids and Fox International Channels.

Mickey’s Music Festival we are celebrating with the Disney characters to a soundtrack of the latest sounds and chart-topping hits.

Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival, featuring an all star line-up of more than 25 Disney characters,   begins with audiences watching a state-of-the-art video projection of the frenzy backstage which spills onto the stage as Mickey welcomes guests to his concert tour.  Soon thereafter, they will be transported to a new world of hip hop beats, dizzying acrobatics, flying carpets and magical transformations with Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie.  Underwater is where the crowd will meet up with Ariel, Sebastian and their nautical pals to groove to the reggae rhythm. And, family and friends will stomp to the beat as Woody, Buzz and Jessie teach them how to boogie rodeo-style.  Anyone can be a member of the band as giant-sized balloons fall from the ceiling in one scene and then in the next, Disney characters are dancing in the aisles.   

“We’ve created an environment where audience members will be able to connect with the Disney stars,” said Alana Feld, Producer and Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment. “Within each concert moment are elements of personal interaction and they will be harmonizing, dancing, laughing and having an outrageously good time with the characters right there in their city.”
