Meteor Garden in Filipino

I mentioned in previous posts that the first drama that got me hooked on the Asian fever was Meteor Garden. The series was shown in by one of the local networks here in the Philippines and it was dubbed in Filipino. A cousin of mine was so crazy aout this series that she recorded it on her computer. I posted the videos in youtube about3 years ago (yes, I’m the same chipskjaa user on youtube! ahahaha). I’m posting the videos again here 😀 . Enjoy!

The Time I Went Mountain Climbing…

I was born and raised in a city. I am a city girl. I’ve lived in the city for more than 20 years now. Though there would be times where my family would go on a vacation to my mom’s province, the longest time I’ve been there was 3 weeks. However, my mom’s province cemented roads and pavements. I’ve never been to a place where the cemented road is about an hour away by foot. I’ve never been to that particular place until last Saturday.

One of my officemates invited us to go mountain climbing. The goal was to climb the highest peak in Cebu, which was Osmeña Peak. At first I did not want to participate in the said “activity” — for a lot of reasons – like my being clumsy, my injured left ankle and my stepping out of my comfort zone. But through the coaxing of my friends, I decided “what the heck” and promised them I would come with them to the adventure. I am stepping out of my comfort zone for the first time in history.

Then, the moment I made a promise it seems life played tricks on me. I think it started to happen 3 days before the said climb. We were scheduled for a basic mountaineering course (since it was the first time for most of us, in fact only our mountaineer friend  had climbed a mountain!) three days before Saturday. But on the day we were supposed to have that course, I was given a schedule for my part time teaching job. So I was not able to participate. The night before we were to climb, my cousins were in the mood for coffee and a little chit chat. Coffee with them will last for hours — and it did, in fact I got home at around  1 AM and I had to prepare for the things I’m supposed to bring. I finished preparing at around 2 AM, that meant I only have 3 more hours to sleep since I need to wake up at 5 or 5:30 at the latest to get to the meeting place at 7. I did wake up but I had a splitting head ache.

On Saturday, the weather seemed to have its own ideas. It was raining in the city. And when it was raining in the city it meant there would be more rain in the mountain areas. And it did not stop raining!! When we arrived at the foot of the mountain, there was rain. It was very cold, i bet it would have been about 10 degrees. There was fog. Everytime we would talk steam came out from our mouths (but it was fun to experience that since the Philippines is a hot country and you never experience that here unless you go to Baguio). But since we were at the foot of the mountain it was too late to back out.

So we began walking — so began the torture. We walked for about an hour to get to the last house before the peak. And when we arrived, the wind started to display its angst to the 10 people who were trying to climb the peak. Because of the rain and of the wind, our guides decided that we should spend the night there — a good thing since it was 5 degrees and you literally cannot see a thing! The wind and the rain prevented us from using our tents (too bad since it was heavy carrying them around). Before we slept all of us were hoping that the weather would cooperate the next day so we can climb the peak.

And the weather was good to us! At around 9 AM the sun decided to shine its marvelous grandeur! It meant we could visit the peak. The climb to the peak was about 20 to 30 minutes (sorry we were a bit slow since it was our first time). But the view from the top was really breath taking and it was nice experience, except for the fact the the wind literally would knock you down. But it was an accomplishment — especially for the city girl who was too afraid to step out of her comfort zone.

So lessons learned for this experience: (1) it’s ok to step out from your comfort zone once in a while; (2) a city girl can brave the mountains; and (3) life tends to play little jokes on you but in the end it let’s you gain a once in a lifetime experience.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, this is how the view from the peak looked like…

Love 119 – K. Will feat. MC Mong

I haven’t been posting anything on this blog for quite a few days now. I’ve been a bit busy and just this weekend I went mountain climbing! 😀

But since I promised to post entries (as much as I can) to this blog, I’ve decided to take sometime off my busy days. I looking for a song to post on my blog. Then just this evening (its 12 AM, Feb 12 in Cebu) I was watching Pops in Seoul and they played K. Wills Love 119 MV, so I decided that this will be the song that I will be posting. I am not much of a K. Will fan but I like the melody of this song and it also features MC Mong.  Thanks to wondersmurf @youtube for posting a video of the song with english subs!

Love 119 (Translation)

(Even though my heart, my love feels like it’s going to stop)

i’m sick now. i have a fever. i cant even breathe.
my bruised heart is calling only your name
i can’t believe that it’s over
i cant give a girl like you to someone else
my love can’t rest a day,
my heart can’t beat without you
what could i do without you?
i can’t believe that it’s over
i can never let you go,
that’s why you go to know:
i want love until i collapse from exhaustion
please, just love me now
my only girlfriend, let’s begin
let’s start again, ’till the end

* i love you, even as time goes by
i love you, even if the world changes
no one can replace you, even you know that
my love can’t rest a day
i can’t live a moment without you
i can breathe only if you’re with me
i love you forever and ever

P-L-E-A-S-E
my love is an emergency
come back to me, give me one more chance to me
we’re inseparable, man to be
(x2)

please just choose me, make it hot
so that our love can burn
it’s better for me to stop smoking than to not see you
please, just love me now
my only girlfriend, let’s begin
let’s start again, ’till the end

* i love you, even as time goes by
i love you, even if the world changes
no one can replace you, even you know that
my love can’t rest a day
i can’t live a moment without you
i can breathe only if you’re with me
i love you forever and ever

even though my heart feels like it’s going to stop (x2)
my love for you is still the same (x2)

thank you, for loving me
thank you, for making me laugh

(Even though my heart, my love feels like it’s going to stop)

the words i say not with my eyes, but with my heart
i’ll love you forever, even if ten years pass by
like a star that lights up your night
even if i were to be born again
i’ll only love you, like this ~

back back, i want it back
protect this love that’ll become my strength
you you you got to know
i only want you, i need your love
