The more brilliant star...

I am a fan of Sarah Geronimo but when I heard her last Sunday at ASAP, I noticed that there was a change in the timbre of her voice. It might be my imagination but I think all the singing (I imagine her vocal chords screaming for some R&R) is taking its toll. She must get some rest!

But when she sang "Bituing Walang Ningning" I can't help but compare her to the Megastar Sharon Cuneta (or her ghost singer at that time). I like the original, even if "mahangin" and nasal, the song interpretation of Ate Shawi was full of emotion.

When Sharon sings, "Lunurin mo ako sa lilim ng iyong pagmamahal", you can really feel that she's really drowning (not literally) but fully immersed in love. This song can literally be in your head the whole day... talk about big-time LSS (last song syndrome).

But heck, I was just telling my brother that they never create Tagalog songs like they used to. Rey Valera, Vehnee Saturno, where art thou?

Sharon Cuneta

Kung minsan ang pangarap
Habang buhay itong hinahanap
Bakit nga ba nakapagtataka
Pag ito ay nakamtan mo na
Bakit may kulang pa

Mga bituin aking narating
Ngunit langit ko pa rin ang iyong piling
Kapag tayong dalawa'y naging isa
Kahit na isang laksang bituin
Di kayang pantayan ating ningning


Balutin mo ako ng hiwaga ng iyong pagmamahal
Hayaang matakpan ang kinang na 'di magtatagal
Mabuti pa kaya'y maging bituing walang ningning
Kung kapalit nito'y walang paglaho mong pagtingin

Itago mo ako sa lilim ng iyong pagmamahal
Limutin ang mapaglarong kinang ng tagumpay
Sa piling mo ngayon ako'y bituing walang ningning
Nagkukubli sa liwanag ng ating pag-ibig

Repeat II:

Repeat Refrain:

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
