Memorial Day

Love Story by Taylor Swift

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony of summer air

See the lights,
See the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
You say hello
Little did I know

That you were Romeo you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go, and I said:

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet cause we're dead if they know
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

Cause you were Romeo I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
I was begging you please don't go and I said:

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real,
Don't be afraid
We'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story baby just say yes, oh,

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town I said:

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head, I don't know what to think
He knealt to the ground and pulled out a ring

And said:

Marry me Juliet you'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Cause we were both young when I first saw you

Cool Water Perfume for Women

Today is my birthday.I think I'm very lucky because I receive the gift I always wanted. A friend gave me the Cool Water Perfume. I really love it because of it's unique sent. This is my perfume for almost seven years. My days are incomplete without the Cool Water Perfume. Wherever you spray it, I feel cool, clean and fresh.

I am not good at classifying the best perfume but I would recommend it to anyone. Aside from its cool scent, it is fruity and light. My friend would mention that whenever they smell this scent, they were reminded of me.They also started to use this perfume.

The Philippine National Anthem Being Murdered?

Every time Boxing World Champ Manny Pacquiao does his game mostly in Las Vegas, best Filipino singers are chosen to sing the Philippine National Anthem. As expected Manny the Boxer, did his part so well, he brought home the Title. How about our singers, did they perform well? There are those who sang simply and correctly but mostly failed to give justice to a very simple yet very important song. In the recent game of Pacquiao versus the British Ricky Hatton, Martin Nievera, tagged to be the country's concert king did the best of what he thought was a splendid performance. Unluckily, he was mistaken. Right after his rendition, critics came out of their shell.

The Philippine Hymn, as simple as it is was modified according to his taste. The tempo was modified, the notes were changed. What a disaster!

Haven't you heard the U.S. singers rendered their own Star-Spangled Banner Hymn?No modification at all. Just the usual melody and notes being sung with passion.

Why should we modify such a noble piece? If only we can sing our National Hymn with dignity and pride. Let us absorb the beautiful melody and sing the lyrics with passion. Every single word touches our mind and soul. It can ever stir the heart of one. Then why should we murder our own Philippine National Anthem?

Bagyo sa Gitna ng Tag-araw

Nababaliw na yata ang Mundo. Sa buwan ng tag-araw kung saan dapat ay naliligo tayo sa pawis ay ayaw pa yata tumila ang ulan.

Dalawang linggo na ang nakakalipas at magkasunod-sunod pa yata ang mumunting bagyo na namumuo sa ating kalawakan. Sana ay matapos na ang ulan at gumanda na uli ang langit. Ang ganda ng mga asul na ulap sa matingkad na puting kalawakan. Ngumiti na rin sana si Haring Araw, para sa ganoon ay matuloy na ang ating nausyaming piknik at iba pang mga gimik sa tag-init.

Lupang Hinirang - Gutay-gutay Na Nga Ba?

Makailang beses ng nananalo si Manny Pacquiao sa boksing at bawat laro ay inaawit ang Lupang Hinirang na siyang Pambansang awit ng Pilipinas. Sa iyong palagay nagagawa ba ito ng wasto? Karaniwan sa mapipiling umawit ay sikat nating idolo na labis din nating hinahangaan. Ngunit bakit hindi yata nabibigyan ng katarungan ang simpleng pag-awit ng Lupang Hinirang? Bakit kailangan pang baguhin and estilo ng pag-awit nito? Makabuluhan ba ito? Ang mga nota ba ay dapat pang palitan para maging makabago ang dating ng awitin?

Marahil ay nababawasan na ang ating respeto sa ating Pambansang awit. Sa katunayan ay muntik ng mamatay ang Lupang Hinirang dahil sa nakalimutan ang mga ilang linya nito. Isang sikat na lalaking mang-aawit ang gumawa ng di-kanais-nais na pag-awit sa harap mismo ng madlang Sandaigdigan.

Isang munting aral lang po. Mahalin natin ang ating Pambansang awit. Ingatan ang pagbigkas ng bawat kataga at isapuso ang tunay na kahulugan nito. Diyan lamang natin masasabi na tayo ay karapat-dapat na tawaging Filipino.
