RJ Guitar Center Christmas Sale 2013

So its that time again for this awesome Christmas sale by RJ Guitar Center. Basically you go there on the day of the sale and all items in the store are discounted. It depends on the time you're there. Just refer to the poster.

I remember buying a basic guitar for a friend who wanted to learn and some supplies before. Its really a treat since all the stuff you see in the store are included on the sale, which means everything from supplies, to instruments, everything!

This happens on all branches so better check which branch has the item you wanna snatch for cheap. Expect long lines too so better be there on time and ready to wait for your turn.

Good luck and Happy Shopping!

Tucked in the mellow pace of life

So I dunno what compelled me to start blogging here again. I guess I just wanted to start dumping my thoughts here again, simple as that.

Cheers! :)

Hipon - Sir Rex Kantatero ft. Shehyee (Payphone Parody)

Laughed my ass off when I first saw this, was also impressed with the quality of the video.

But I got to admit I kinda felt sorry for the girl, I mean its a good thing she agreed to this. Must be tough to go out now lol. (you know what, that Hipon kinda looked like one of my aunts :x)

What is Philippine Action?

Being an action movie buff, not to mention someone who enjoys cool ways of kicking someone's ass, I've already seen a lot of different action movies. May it be mainstream western ones or asian ones, I think I've already seen a fair share of them and still on the look out for more.

Made me wonder though, has the Filipino made itself known when it comes to action movies? I mean if its about martial arts I think we can say that we do have our own
styles but were we able to showcase that in a locally made movie?

Its no brainer that asian martial arts has been popular in the action movie genre, and its an effective way to share asian culture and history to the rest of the world.

Some of my favorites:

Ip Man - Wing Chun (Chinese)

Ong Bak - Muay Thai (Thailand)

The Raid: Redemprion - Pencak Silat (Indonesia)

Maybe there's a cool Filipino action movie out there that I haven't seen yet, (you can leave a comment if you know any) or maybe this is the best we could offer. D:

Silent Sanctuary - Hiling

Hihiling kahit dumilim ang aking daan na tatahakin patungo sayo.
So I just got back on listening to this again and also watched its beautiful music video. I really think its one of the best opm music videos I've ever seen.

I'm a sucker for music videos with a story in it and I really like how each scene suited the lines of the song. Seriously, whenever it gets to the bridge, I still find myself crying sometimes. Its just that moving.

One thing though, until know I'm still not sure about the ending. So was the girl pregnant with the guy but she hid the truth so he won't stop from studying/working abroad? or was she pregnant with another guy?

Either way, still painful and bitter sweet since they chose to part ways in the end. :(

Franco - Song For The Suspect @ Myx Live

Considered as a super band because it consists of a members from different established bands, Franco's progressive sound can be called unique. Also, for me Franco Reyes' voice is just so smooth and addicting.

MRT-3, why are you doing this to me?

I dunno what the hell is wrong but it seems MRT-3 has been having a shortage of Stored-Value Tickets since last week. I tried to get a new one last Saturday but they said they're not available. And its been like that for the past four days. Its already getting on my nerves.

I hope they get this thing fixed as soon as possible though. They already stopped the alternative ticketing system since 2009,(G-Pass and Smart Money Pay Pass) maybe its time for a new one. Well I read stuff about it just now and it seems the bidding for a single ticketing system has been stopped by the government. Also, as mentioned from this news report, they said they now have funds for purchasing five additional trains this year. Damn, I hope they get those out soon.

You know, if raising the fare would mean getting a better service then I'm really up for it now. I dunno about you guys.

EDIT: found a news article which explains this
