Hakuna Matata

Music by Elton John, lyrics by Tim RicePerformed by Max Casella, Tom Allan Robbins, Scott Irby-Ranniar, and Jason Raize

Hakuna Matata!What a wonderful phrase

Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze

It means no worries for the rest of your days

It's our problem-free philosophy

Hakuna Matata!

Hakuna Matata? Yeah. It's our motto!

Yeah. It's our motto!

What's a motto?

Nothing. What's a-motto with you?

Those two words will solve all your problems That's right.

Take Pumbaa here

Why, when he was a young warthog...

When I was a young wart hog

Very nice


He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal

He could clear the savannah after every meal

I'm a sensitive soul though I seem thick-skinned

And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind

And oh, the shame He was ashamed

Thought of changin' my name What's in a name?

And I got downhearted How did ya feel?

Everytime that I...

Hey! Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids!

Oh. Sorry

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase

Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze

It means no worries for the rest of your days

It's our problem-free philosophy

Hakuna Matata!

Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!

Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!

Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!

Hakuna Matata! Hakuna--

It means no worries for the rest of your days

It's our problem-free philosophy Hakuna Matata!


I say "Hakuna"

I say "Matata"

Blog Acraze

I have been fanatic of this “ blog ” thing since this April starts.

My officemates become hook of this “ blog ” thing and they say you could make money out of it..effortless and just a brain. I would just laugh at them.

But these past few days I began to envy their devotion in making blogs. So I tried to make my own and feel what it is like to be called a “blogger”. At first, I felt dismayed but I could not put off my head from this “ blog ” issue. I did not understand the flow. All I know is I must have something to post and my template should look best.

It’s a compulsion that is hard to beat once you have started (I guess for the first timer like me). Coz even at night I couldn’t put myself at peace without wondering first what would my “ blog ” look like, what should I post and what would be the next..Just like an ember softly consuming my time.

There are still so many features I want to update with my blog page . I sometimes doubt if I be find interesting to other bloggers. What if they will comment that my page is dull and annoying? But every time I opened up my site and see my viewer numbers are increasing it triggers me much more to go on and do more bloggings.

Oohhh. Well, as long as I see to myself it is good then that’s it!!!

I can never and should never be a susceptible blogger!!!

You Are My Sunshine

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms,
but when I woke dear, I was mistaken,
and I hung my head and cried.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are gray
you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don't take my sunshine away.

I'll always love you and make you happy
if you will only say the same
but if you leave me to love another
you'll regret it all some day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

you make me happy, when skies are gray,
you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don't take my sunshine away.

You told me once dear you really loved me

that no one else could come between
but now you've left me and love another
you have shattered all my dreams.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

you make me happy, when skies are gray,
you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don't take my sunshine away.

This is my fave song. Once i start to sing it my heart hums with my soul.

For my only tot...

Conquer Mt. Apo

It was March 20 -23, 2008 when my Mt. Apo adventure started.. but it really took me a month to think how will I describe my experience there. Well, I just had uncountable stumbles, butt blogs, sprained ankles and dead toe nails on way up and down.

Most of all the most embarassing and tsugeee tsugee of most all times was..chadang!!! "drowning down while crossing the Lake Venado" and all eyes were stucked on me and all applausing cheers and claps"whheeew"

Mount Apo is a large stratovolcano on the island of Mindanao. It is the highest mountain in the country with a 9,692 feet above sea level, the greatest upward surge of a long mountain range stretching from Cotabato, Davao del Sur and Davao City to Agusan and Misamis Oriental in Northern Mindanao. Its name means "master" or "grandfather". Apo is flat topped, with three peaks, and is capped by a 500 m wide volcanic crater (crater lake). It is a source of geothermal energy, but the date of its most recent eruption is unknown, and none are verified in historic times.

The volcanic peak Apo,dominates a vast area of 72,796 hectares where natural wonders lure outdoor enthusiasts to trek through this tribal god's domain and conquer this towering peak.
It is one of the most popular climbing destinations. One can reach the summit through different route. Kidapawan trail, as the easiest route and mostly recommended for a first timer (like me!!!); Kapatagan trail, which will take 2-3 days trek; Boulder's trail, a trail from the word itself; and the newest is the Bansalan trail, where most climbers I've met at the peak abandoned of going back and had decided to take Kidapawan trail..That made me imagine how ten times harder could it be compared to the easy trail!!!

It was March 20, 2008, at exactly 1:00pm from the starting-off point at Lake Agko, 3,937 feet above sea level, the trail winds to the swift-flowing Marbel River over rocks and boulders, taking over from stone to stone.

Along the way, I saw the exotic wonders of nature -- abundant tropical forest; thriving mosses embracing the branches; the green ferns forests; the crystal clear and rush of mountain lakes; sulfur craters; orchids and wild flowers; the humming of cicadas; but unfortunately I have not seen even a feather drop of a monkey-eating eagle.Yet, the beauty of God's creation filters your exaspiration.
March 21, 2008. Reaching Lake Venado expires the groaning of knees as it lifted faith and confidence to myself. At first, I pity to the place for it looks like an abandoned area for years with grasses wilted, soil top layered with green mosses, and branches turn grey and crumpled skins..As we continue to walk, I could not believe what my eyes have seen. Beyond those golden grasses lies beneath is the LAKE VENADO..So, this is what they called Venado..I don't know why but its name sounds near to "beauty". The Lake Venado feels like I have reached the heaven.Fogs dancing around the lake, winds softly whimpers your sweat, and the sways of trees and leaves smoothly whispers in my ears.
We spent night at Lake Venado. The coldness was beyond my expectation!!! I wonder how it feels spending nigh at peak..Could I resist? when just this moment I wanted to burst out. I could hear my teeth chuckling, my chin moves up and down, body tossing left to right, clothes felt wet (but eally not) -- everything was cold and wet. Actually, it was an exhausting night - could not put myself at sleep!!! But what fascinated me? Smoking every seconds, minutes, hours, and days!! When I talked or laugh even just smile.. I saw the smoke comin out from my mouth!! It really felt like an Expert Smoker.

At the next day early morning, we started our trail heading to peak. The trail at start is so lumpy and at the middle to the peak..gosh so wide open. As i reached the peak, all the pain and tiredness were all vanished.. the beauty of Apo is amazing and can hardly be describe into words. Well, at that moment I just felt the wholeness of being a Filipino and the beauty of creation!!hihii

Too bad, we can't stay long at Apo, by that after lunch we headed back to Lake Venado, then to Lage Agko and goin home. Surely, the memories of Apo be always in my heart..hopin to come back again!

A Smile

GENES NUEVA MABEL, a 2 year old girl where the pains of operation can hardly be seen in her. She sees herself as the most beautiful creation that can derailed love, hears her voice sings like no one can mellow a cruel heart, and alluring smile that culprits life’s burden.

“One child in 700 is born with a cleft. It is the fourth most common birth defect, and first common facial birth defect”, according to widesmiles .

For thousands of children born with physical defects, most of them grew up with inferiorities. Perfectly able or not, complete or not- has its own insecurities and discontentment. But for children like them, the feeling of outcast starts within the family.

Many parents still feel so alone and shame of this case so as the child have this feelings of unwelcome and havoc with self-esteem. Others find that surviving from bullying and teasing gives them inner strength.

Yet, the real point is when the family starts and learned to love and appreciate their presence so as the surroundings would be. Teach them to recognize that beauty is not about what you see but their beauty within.

This world is not just for perfect but for all God’s conception. We all belong here and none is outcast.
