7 things (i hate about you)

7 Things
Miley Cyrus

Sha, sha, sha

I probably shouldn’t say this
But at times I get so scared
When I think about the previous
Relationship we shared
It was awesome but we lost it
It’s not possible for me not to care

And now we’re standing in the rain
But nothings ever gonna change
Until you hear, my dear

The 7 things I hate about you
The 7 things I hate about you, oh you

You’re vain
Your games
You’re insecure
You love me you like her
You made me laugh, you made me cry
I don’t know which side to buy

Your friends they’re jerks when you act like them
Just know it hurts
I want to be with the one I know
And the 7th thing I hate the most that you do
You make me love you

It’s awkward and silent as I wait for you to say
What I need to hear now is your sincere apology
When you mean it I’ll believe it
If you text it I’ll delete it
Let’s be clear
Oh I’m not coming back
Your taking seven steps here

The 7 things I hate about you
You’re vain
Your games
You’re insecure
You love me you like her
You made me laugh, you made me cry
I don’t know which side to buy

Your friends they’re jerks when you act like them
Just know it hurts
I want to be with the one I know
And the 7th thing I hate the most that you do
You make me love you

Compared to all the great things
That would take too long to write
I probably should mention the 7 that I like

The 7 things I like about you
Your hair
Your eyes
Your old Levi’s
When we kiss I’m hypnotized

You make me laugh, you make me cry
But I guess that’s both I’ll have to buy
Your hands in mine when we’re intertwined
Everything’s alright

I want to be with the one I know

And the 7th thing I like the most that you do
You make me love you
You do, oh
Oohhhh oooooooooohhh…

====================

song post ulit…

because love is a paradox…

“i know that it’s you i love to be with”

Hi
True Faith

The park is empty, my beer’s already warm
And the shoppers have all gone home
Drunken and weary, I almost thought I forgot
About that someone who hit that spot

Love was a thing you wanted to know
And so with one wish, I did gave a show
Now that you’re back with a half-baked smile
Just skip the bull, let’s talk for a while

Hello, how have you been
Who’ve you been seeing this past few weekends
I know it’s not me
I know that it’s you I’d love to be with

When you want to be free
It’s so funny how you should hurt someone
And that someone was me
I’m just a man, not much with plans
But I do believe in what I stand

Love was a thing you wanted to know
And so with one wish, I did gave a show
Now that you’re back with a half-baked smile
Just skip the bull, let’s talk for a while

Hello, how have you been
Who’ve you been seeing this past few weekends
I know it’s not me
I know that it’s you I’d love to be with

Hello, how have you been
Who’ve you been seeing this past few weekends
I know it’s not me
I know that it’s you I’d love to be with

Love will tear us apart again, and again, and again

Hello, don’t say good-bye, don’t say good-bye
Just say hello, just say hello
Don’t say good-bye, don’t say good-bye
Just say hello, just say

Hello, how have you been
Who’ve you been seeing this past few weekends
I know it’s not me
I know that it’s you I’d love to be with

Hello, how have you been
Who’ve you been seeing this past few weekends
I know it’s not me
I know that it’s you I’d love to be with

Hello, hoh hoh, hoh hoh
Hello, hoh hoh, hoh hoh hoh

once along heartache avenue

Kumusta Siya
The Company
Mahal Kong Radyo

Nasasabik ako ‘pag kausap kita
Matagal na rin naman ‘di tayo nagkita
Ngayong nakita ka parang alam ko na
May dalawang puso, masayang-masaya

Sa ‘yong mga tingin parang alam ko na
‘Di ka nagkamali nang piliin mo siya
Kahit mahal kita hindi ka liligaya
Kung sa puso mo nga’y may mahal kang iba

Kumusta siya? Kumusta ka?
Kumusta na kayong dalawa?
Alam ba niya na bago siya naging “tayong dal’wa?”*
Pwede ko bang matanong pa kung maligaya ka sa kaniya?
Kumusta siya? Kumusta ka?
Kumusta na kayong dalawa?

Sa ‘yong mga ngiti parang alam ko na
Siya na nga at ‘di ako ang tunay mong ligaya
Kurot sa puso ko hanggang ngayo’y nadarama
Nawala ng lahat nang makita kita

(*emphasis mine)
re-discovered this song accidentally while looking at my old CDs. naging theme ko ‘to for a while. di ko alam may potency pala tong kantang to bring back the emotions dati. haha… oh well, sadyang ganun ang pag-associate sa mga bagay-bagay. not only do the memories stick, mukhang pati emosyon… πŸ™‚

i miss ortigas

alala ko nung college, nung uso pa talaga ang chat, nakilala ko yung ilang tao na di ko makakalimutan. since bago ako sa malaking siyudad gaya ng maynila, di ako nakakatikim ng ‘night life’.

probinsyanong probinsyano ako… hindi pa nakatikim ng ‘barkada’ sa gabi. ang pinaka-ideya ko ng ‘barkada’ noon eh yung mga kalaro ko simula bata and then mga naging kainuman sa tapat ng tindahan nila aling pinang. ang tugtog galing lang sa radiyo sa bahay. kahit ano’ng ipagtugtog ng FM station, OK na. besides, di mo na papansinin yun pag lasing ka na eh. may tugtog, sasayaw ka na…

meron din sigurong konting konting night life. high school naman, nakapunta ako sa Angeles. pero nakabantay pa din ang guardians ko. i stayed at an apartment with my ninang’s brother during HS. siyempre, ayaw ko sila bigyan ng sakit ng ulo dahil una, nakikitira lang ako and pangalawa, pag may nangyari saken, malamang eh masisi din sila ng nanay at tatay ko. being the good boy that i was, ayun… uuwi ng nasa oras, hindi lumalabas ng walang okasyon, at kung lalabas man, hindi nagpapagabi.

third or fourth year college ata yun nung napa-mIRC ako noon. allotted 3 or 4 hours tuwing tues or wed night. babalik ako ng dorm 12mn. wala namang curfew at tatawid lang naman ako’t maglalakad ng konti, yung internet cafe na. after a few months, nagkalakas loob at pera na din ako para makipag-EB. first chatmate(s) EB ko yun. starbucks 6750 ang meetup. manghang-mangha ako sa ayala, sa starbucks, sa mga personalidad sa coffee shop, at sa presyo ng isang basong kape. pagka-meet sa mga tao sa likod ng mga nicknames, punta na yan sa SideBar sa El Pueblo. may mga sasakyan yung iba kaya libre na ang pagpunta dun. inom, magpakasaya, inom, tatawa, inom… at nagpapakalunod sa tugtog. life was good… it was REALLY good.

thanks to tipsy’s playlist for making me recall and miss those times.

do i need a reason

naalala ko lang ngayon na last week, papasok ako sa work, medyo mainit na ang sikat ng araw (bandang 9AM na). but the feeling was really sort of glorious, bathing under the sun, feeling it on you face. i look up at the clear blue sky over the trees that have just started sprouting leaves again. then with my mp3 player on ‘radio mode’, this song started playing and i instantly turned into a crazy kid, imagining i was filming a music video.

i was daydreaming.

everything just looked perfect to me that time. i knew i looked weird smiling and with a daft expression on my face while walking towards work, but i felt really pleased and happy then. i didn’t care about the heat or the long walk or being late or the jet lag. i just felt really really good listening to it.

i think i found another feel good song. πŸ™‚

maligayang pasko!

well, since magsa-sign-off muna ako dahil sa Christmas break at walang internet sa bahay, and i’m pretty sure nobody would even notice, i’m just going to wish everybody an advanced Merry Christmas!

and, errr… with Ronito-Ronita, i hope i could go to the mall to send my Xmas card. hopefully it won’t be late.

add ko na lang isa sa mga paborito kong Christmas songs by the great Lucio San Pedro (+)

aldo ning kapampangan

in celebration of the 436th foundation of Pampanga, a little tribute to Kapampangans. Be Proud! You’re Kapampangan!

The song is performed by ArtiSta.Rita and Mon David, an award-winning jazz artist, whose roots are found in our hometown. actually, he is our neighbor of some sorts. πŸ™‚ of course, he doesn’t live in our barangay anymore but his parents are still there.

Β dakal ku naman buring sabyan. dakal ku buring iparatang kareng mamasa (nung atin man). ngeni na ing panaun para isulung tayang pasibayu ing kapampangan. ali ta’ ‘ya paburen mawala namu kabud ing akaragulan tamu. uling aku, dakal naku e balung kapampangan. sasabyan tamu malalam na lang masyadu para kekatamu. dapot nung gamitan tala aldo-aldo, makapanalbe at mamasang kapampangan, dakal tamu abalu.

ing kaburian na ning pusu ku a mibabaya para keng makanining bage, ita sanang maging ‘popular’ ya kareng kayanakan. ini sana ing buri ku abalu at aturu tamu. e me kakalingwan ing kekang penibatan. pagmaragul mu ing panga-kapampangan mu!

Kapampangan ka, pagmaragul mu! I can’t stress this enough… be proud of your heritage,Β  your roots. YOU ARE KAPAMPANGAN!

i wish i was single again

i wish i was single againgusto niyong maki-kanta? hanapin niyo lang sa youtube ang performance ng Madz. maaliw kayo pramis. πŸ™‚

and please do take time to digest the lyrics of the song. ang actual advice ay nasa dulo. (huuus… palusot ka pa! -A)

when i was single, oh then, oh then
when i was single, oh then
when i was single my pockets would jingle
and i wish i was single again.

a-jing 3x
a-ling 3x
my pockets did jingle and jingle
when i was still single
and i wish i was single again.

i married a wife, oh then, oh then
i married a wife, oh then
i married a wife
she’s the plague of my life
and i wish i was single again, again
i wish i was single again

a plague! a plague! a plague!
a hag! a hag! a hag!
my wife was the plague of my life
the plague of my life was my wife

but my wife, she died, oh then, oh then
my wife, she died, oh then
my wife she died
and then i cried
to think i was single again, again
to think i was single again

she died, she died, she died
i cried, i cried, i cried
i cried when she died
i cried and cried and cried…

i married another, oh then, oh then
i married another, oh then
i married another
she’s worse than the other
and wish i was single again, again
i wish i was single again

she’s worse! she’s worse! she’s worse!
a curse! a curse! a curse!
she’s worse than the other
the devil’s grandmother
and i wish i was single again

so young men take warning from this, from this
young men take warning from this
be good to the first
for the next is much worse
and i wish i was single again, again
i wish i was single again

call center training: rosas pandan

ever hoped to get that “Emeeerican Eceeent”? call centers train their employees to get rid of their Filipino accents by ‘Americanizing’ the words that they know in Filipino (Tagalog, Bisaya, etc.) this, i discovered, was their training video…

and this one…

if you sounded like this last video, then you still have that Filipino Accent stuck. Good luck!!!

hahaha… kaaliw diba? pino-promote ko na din pala ang UPSA [UP Singing Ambassadors] (mae, badang, yung porsyento ko sa mga gig niyo. or pwede ding libreng tickets na lang. hehehe).

Rosas Pandan

Ania si Rosas Pandan
Gikan pa intawon sa kabukiran
Kaninyo makiguban-uban
Sa gisaulog nga kalingawan

Balitaw day akong puhunan
Maoy kabilin sa akong ginikanan
Awit nga labing kara-an
Nga garbo ning atong kabungturan

Dika ding dika ding dika ding
Ayay sa atong balitaw
Manindot pa ug sayaw
Daw yamog ang kabugnaw

Dika dong dika dong dika dong
Ayay usab si Dodong
Nagtan-aw kang Inday
Nagtabisay ang laway

Ayayay ayayay ayayay
Aya-ay sa akong balitaw
Kanindot ba mosayaw
Daw yamog ang kabugnaw

Tigadong tigadong tigadong
Ayay usab si Dodong
Nagtan-aw kang Inday
Nagtabisay ang laway

Balitaw day akong puhunan
Maoy kabilin sa akong ginikanan
Awit nga labing kara-an
Nga garbo ning atong kabungturan

Ayayay ayayay ayayay
Aya-ay sa akong balitaw
Kanindot ba mosayaw
Daw yamog ang kabugnaw

Tigadong tigadong tigadong
Ayay usab si Dodong
Nagtan-aw kang Inday
Nagtabisay ang laway

Ayayay ayayay ayayay
Aya-ay sa akong balitaw
Kanindot ba mosayaw
Daw yamog ang kabugnaw

Tigadong tigadong tigadong
Ayay usab si Dodong
Nagtan-aw kang Inday
Nagtabisay ang laway
Nagtan-aw kang Inday
Nagtabisay ang laway
