Gangnam Style

"Hey, sexy lady...Oppa Gangnam Style.." 

A Korean hit, no not hit but a PHENOMENON, dance song that gives everybody a dance of a lifetime. I am a Filipino and I don't understand Korean language other than Kamsahamnida (thank you) Aniyo ( no), and Annyong haseyo? (Good morning) that I get from watching Korean drama. 

I heard this song first  while I was watching It's Showtime when the comedian/actor Vice Ganda  danced a horse dance after cracking a joke. After seeing that episode, I've searched on YouTube about the song because it really stayed on my mind FOR THE WHOLE DAY! but then, I failed. And so, I only have a chance hearing the song from the said show. 

One lazy afternoon, while browsing my YouTube channel for new videos and vlogs, I saw Bubzbeauty's new vlog about Girls vs Girls. But anyway, to make the story short, it is because of this video that I learned the title of the song..ATLAS! 

And so, I searched the song myself and typed "GANGNAM STYLE".... I feel so stupid for thinking it's "GUNDAM STYLE" (facepalm)

This song really gave me LAUGHS and it doesn't need english translation to like the song. Right now, I'm on the challenge in learning the horse dance and it's also a good workout!

What do you think? Are you going to try and do the Gangnam Style?

Brrrrr Months

Here in the Philippines, September 1 is the day that the Christmas season is just around the corner. Early in the morning, local radio stations play our all-time favorite Christmas songs..isn't it wonderful?


Before talking about the yuletide season, let me give a you a glimpse of what happened to me for the rest of the month of August. I know I haven't been blogging for weeks now because of my hectic schedule. But, anyway, here it goes...

I've mentioned in my last blog about the Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival.  This festival is all about beauty, street dances, floral floats, flowers, and the King of Fruits: DURIAN!

The highlight of this month was when one of my close friend, Aina,  had her vacation. It was a 2-day event full of catching ups, food, and...getting tipsy? HAHA!!!
