JUNE 26, 2011. Â Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo, CCP. Â My xxGF managed to see one of the only 13 runs of The Music of Andrew Lloyd WeberÂ for the Manila leg of its Australia, New Zealand and Asia Tour. Â As of this posting I believe the show just wrapped up its Singapore leg.
Which means that I can now write about it. Â I try to avoid blogging about a show while it is still running so that I would not unnecessarily influence other people’s decision to see it or not.
So what do I think about The Music of Andrew Lloyd Weber? Read more
Brightly lit and ornately decorated thoroughfares and buildings, colorful parols (Christmas lanterns), Tagalog Christmas songs… these are just some of the things that make Christmas in Metro Manila memorable and unique.
And they have all been captured in this approximately 10-minute video clip that I have stumbled upon just earlier today.
It’s happening. â€ More and more songs are now available in You Tube, complete with lyrics.
Incidentally, if you are a Beatles fan then you will love this link: â€ www.beatlestube.net. â€ It boasts of a huge selection of the greatest Beatles hits, with lyrics, for you to sing along with. â€ I am a Beatles fan myself, although I have to make the disclaimer that The Beatles are two generations ahead of me.

Recommended by my good friend and former colleague, Jojie Perez, who is currently living a charmed life in Singapore. â€ Thanks Jojie. â€ I am sure you are having a swell time all by yourself away from PH. 😀
I MADE several small personal victories in the past couple of days so I am in the mood to celebrate and relax at the same time. â€ This superb rendition by my favorite sexy string quartet, BOND, seems fitting for the occasion. â€ Like most other classical-pop hits by BOND, “Victory” is both soothing and invigorating at the same time. Enjoy!
THIS GIRL is wonderful!â€ She has a very sexy voice and really sexy eyes. â€ I first saw her in the blog of my blogging buddy, Sherwin De Jesus. â€ I’ve fallen in love with her music since. â€ I’ll bet you would, too.
By posting it also here in my blog I risk being ridiculed by hard-core bloggers who would probably say that I lack originality. â€ Never mind. â€ First of all I am not a hard-core blogger so why should I care? â€ Second, and more importantly, I blog to share things I find wonderful and this is definitely one of them. 😉
IT’S CHRISTMAS DAY and all I want to do is wish that everybody is having a perfect Christmas. â€ Here’s Jose Marie Chan’s “A Perfect Christmas. â€ For those who want to sing along I also included the lyrics below. â€ Thanks to Google it took me less than three minutes to find both the music file and the lyrics to the song.â€
WHAT DO Regine Velasquez, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Avril Lavigne, Jessica Simpson, Whitney Houston, and Celine Dion have in common? â€ This blog post’s title is, of course, a give-away. â€ They have all sung ‘Oh Holy Night’ beautifully and their wonderful renditions are all available on You Tube.
But you need not go to You Tube and search for them. â€ I’ve collected them for your listening and viewing pleasure here in A ‘Wonderful’ Blog! :-> Read more
