“Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young”
- Albus Dumbledore




It was a great week for Filipinos all over the world as two of our fellow men brought home recognition and honor.
First, Manny Pacquiao won his seventh boxing title and making it a history to be the first to have seven titles in different division.
Then, CNN named their Hero of the Year 2009, none other than Efren Peñaflorida. With his "kariton klassroom" aiming to teach children how to read and write with other co-volunteers. He gave a very heart warming speech that addresses all of us, all the people of the world.
I hope the government would learn from this, not just acknowledge the recognition that Efren got, but we must start acting, helping those who are in need and continue what they have started.
It only proves that everything starts with education. And we must give enough attention to that matter which we are lacking.

Congratulations to Efren Peñaflorida, continue what you have started and may everyone be inpired by your self-less act.

Glee's Defying Gravity

Glee is back equiped with very very good songs such as Proud Mary and Defying Gravity from Wicked the musical. A favorite books of mine because it's all about Elphie the wicked witch of the west in the Wizard of Oz.
But when Glee sang their rendition of the song it brings a whole new meaning to it. Which is quite touching indeed.

Listen to the song or sing a long, below is the lyrics. Enjoy!


Defying Gravity

[Rachel]
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
of someone else's game
[Kurt]
Too late for second guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close me eyes and leap

[Chorus - together]
It's time to try
defying gravity
I think I'll try
defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
and you won't bring me down...

[Rachel]
I'm through accepting limits
'cause someone says they're so
[Kurt]
Some things I cannot change
But 'til I try I'll never know
[Rachel]
Too long I've been afraid of
[Kurt]
Losing love I guess I've lost
[Together]
Well if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost

[Chorus - together]
I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you won't bring me down...

I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss my goodbye
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you won't bring me down,
Bring me down

(applause!)

Thanks to 4shared for the music.

Sesame Street on Google! All of them!

How cute!
The whole Sesame Street gang on google.
Does this mean it's the last day for them on google? :(




Not so many people have this kind of heart and concern towards education and children.
Our very own Efren Penaflorida is nominated as one of CNN's Hero of the year. With his pushcart classroom, he teaches children in the streets basic reading and writing together with his friends and volunteers.

Our Nation needs people like them and example like him. Our government needs to realize this. Sure, it is a great honor to be nominated in this category. It honors Efren and the country. But what now? We must take action, continue and expand what they have started.

This only proves that everything starts with education, as simple as reading and writing.

It's Elmo on Google!

Finally, it's Elmo on google!
We've been waiting for him all week! And google finally put him up in the search engine!
Why?
I think it's a week celebration of Sesame Street's 40th year!



Kawaii! Elmo!
