At sana rin, hindi bumagyo.

This is a 1-day, by-invitation only. Registration starts at 12nn.

Ang paborito ko sa mga ganitong gathering ay ang blogoselfie. Lahat ng umattend, magsisiksikan sa isang lugar at kukunan ng isang panoramic shot o di kaya isang video na pasigaw na sasabihin na “Wish You Were Heeeeerrree!”

Kung gusto mong makasama, pwede kang mag-click sa LINK NA TO, at i-fill out ang form. Andyan na rin ang details at agenda ng summit:

PINOCCHIO ” CHILDREN’S MUSICAL OPENS ON AUGUST 16

In celebration of its 22 years of producing well-loved musicals for children of all ages, Repertory Philippines Theater for Young Audiences proudly announces a richly imaginative offering with the staging of

PINOCCHIO” – the story of a familiar wooden puppet who wants to become a real boy whose nose grew when he told a lie.

Originally written as a serial in 1881, Le avventure di Pinocchio (The Adventures of Pinocchio), its popularity was given a boost when Walt Disney made it into a popular 1940 animated film. The story has been filmed many other times, including a 2002 live-action version starring 50-year-old Oscar-winner Roberto Benigni as Pinocchio.

The contemporary celebration of PINOCCHIO has been newly adapted for today’s young audiences in this award-winning musical based on the Book by Carlo Collodi, Adaptation and Lyrics by Jim Eiler; and Music by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy.

Set in Italy, this version tells the beloved tale of Pinocchio, a boy-sized puppet built by the caring puppet maker, Geppetto. Knowing of his longing for a son, the Blue Fairy brings Pinocchio to life as a reward for Geppetto’s remarkably generous spirit. Pinocchio is told by the Blue Fairy that if he always obeys his father, she will turn him into a real boy. But the best laid plans can sometimes go awry and Pinocchio’s boyish longings leads him away from his father and on an adventure unlike any other. From the Land of The Toys to the belly of a whale, Pinocchio learns that no love is greater than that of a parent for a child.

Ms. Joy Virata, artistic director of Repertory Philippines Therater for Young Audiences will direct PINOCCHIO. This marks her third time to direct this musical since it was produced in 1996 and 2004 respectively.

This new and fresh production of Pinocchio is going to be a real treat for the entire family with a flurry of masks, music and merriment. It will be alive, charming and bursting with energy. The children in the audience will be spellbound with its visually stunning and colorful set design and costumes with loads of fun.

For this production, the role of PINOCCHIO will be alternately performed by Albert Silos, Noel Comia, Daniel Drilon, Guido Gatmaytan, Sofie Wong and Andee Achacoso. Pinocchio’s character is the epitome of naïve innocence and is led into trouble time and time again because of it. He is a curious, impressionable, and a sincere young lad.

Oliver Usison and Nic Campos shall alternately play the role of GEPETTO, a toy maker who is noticeably warm-hearted and caring, spirited and fun loving. He is constantly yearning for a son and wants nothing but the best for Pinocchio.

Arnel Carrion and James Stacey will alternately play the role of ANTONIO, the story’s narrator, as well as other characters in the village. He will interact with the audience throughout the show with his inviting, engaging, energetic charm.

Antonio Lane and Jay Pangilinan shall alternately tackle the role of CANDLEWICK, the young and rambunctious rule-breaker. With his bratty and mischievous attitude, he leads Pinocchio into trouble with several other boys.

Natalie Everett, Ring Antonio and Bituin Escalante will alternately essay the role of Angelina, Geppetto’s housekeeper. She cares deeply for Geppetto’s well being and possesses a loving rapport with him. A thoughtful and clever woman.

Liesl Batucan, Christine Flores and Cara Barredo will alternately play the role of the Blue Fairy, an omniscient presence and motherly figure. She looks out for and guides Pinocchio. She is kind, gentle, and generous to those pure of heart.

Steven Conde and Steven Hotchkiss will alternately play the role of Signore Volpone, the ringleader of a sinister plot to exploit naive children. He operates as the “brains” of the operation and keeps Signore Gatto in his place. Portrayed as a fox, he is dishonest thief with great cunning and craftiness.

Chino Veguillas and Dingdong Rosales will alternately bring to life the role of Signore Gatto, the less intelligent sidekick of Signore Volpone. Portrayed as a cat, he is a dishonest thief and blindly follows his boss.

Onyl Torres, Raul Montesa and Bituin Escalante will alternately play the role of Coachman.

Vien King and Steven Conde will alternately play the role of Gino.

The ensemble is composed of the following: Khevin Almario, Mano Domingo, Gold Soon, Thea Gloria, Gabri Panlilio, Ina Salonga, David Shawn Delgado, Justine Pena, Daniel Delgado, James Perez, Kendrick Ibasco, Cristy Paredo, Mica Fajardo, Astarte Abraham and Nicolle Cojuangco.

PINOCCHIO is set to open on August 16, 2014 at Onstage, 2/F, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas cor. Legazpi St., Makati City. The show runs until December 12, 2014.

A really brilliant musical for kids, PINOCCHIO promises to be a completely unique theatre experience — a modern remix of the original story told with vim, verve, vibrancy with the overall message of the importance of good behavior !!!

Simbang Gabi 2012 Schedule – half time report

pasensya na po.

Hindi ko kaya mag blog araw-araw tungkol sa Simbang Gabi aka Misa de Gallo dahil nagwo-work po ako simula 7am til 4pm. Pagkatapos ng work, may mga events pa akong pinupuntahan.

Buti nagkaroon ako ng oras para magsulat ng blog na to para bigyan kayong mga readers ko ng idea kung san pa kayo pwede magsimba para sa 9 day novena pampasko.

Eto ang pictures na may kasama na rin na captions. This will cover for the first 4 days na nakapagsimbang gabi ako. Hindi rin kumpleto ang schedule dahil yung oras lang na nakapagsimba ako ang ibibigay ko.

Hanep sa report noh?! Sorry na, tao lang.

Anyway, enjoy!

Kailangan na nila palakihin pa yung simbahan. Hindi kaya ng simbahan na ito ang dami ng mga nagsisimba kapag peak hours.

Dun ako sa latter para sakto na lang ang paglalakad ko papunta sa office nung natapos ang misa ng 6:30AM. Kumpleto sa gamit, aircon,  at magaling ang choir. English nga lang ang misa at nasakto pa ako sa pari na hindi nagtatagalog. Ang gusto ko pa naman, Tagalog na homily. Para ma-gets ko at maka-relate ng mas maayos.

THIRD DAY: Late na ako nakarating sa misa dahil may event pa ako. Actually, siningit lang namin dahil nagbakasakali lang kami. 8PM nagsimula ang misa at nakarating kami nun bandang prayers of the faithful na. Nag-sorry na lang ako at kumanta ng offertory song at communion song ng buo kong lakas. Maraming tao pero ayos lang dahil mataas naman ang roof. May mga electric fan din naman kaya maayos at komportable ang pagsisimba.

FOURTH DAY: Napakaswerte ko sa misa na to dahi si Fr Jerry Orbos ang naging celebrator. Magaling siyang pari. Siya yung madalas natin napapanood sa Sunday TV Mass ng ABS-CBN. Nagmimisa din pala siya sa ospital.

Nasaktohan ko lang na 5am ang misa dahil may mga nakasabay akong naglalakad. Well, ayos lang din yun dahil 1 hour travel ang kailangan ko papuntang Makati area. Hindi man aircon ang simbahan, ayos lang din dahil kaunti lang ang nagsisimba. Hindi ko lang trip ang choir dahil medyo mabagal kumanta sila sister. Nakakaantok talaga para sa akin ang boses ng mga madre.

 

************

O ayan, report ko na yan para sa first half. May limang misa pa akong dapat puntahan para makapag-wish. Ipagdasal po ninyo ako gaya ng pagdarasal ko para sa inyo.

Sorry po sa mga bad comments pero kailangan ko lang maging honest. Maiintindihan sana ako ni Lord pati ng mga readers ko.

Walang Pasok sa PASIG

Sarado daw mga opisina sa Pasig. Akala ko, nagbibiro lang ang pinsan ko na Operations Manager ng Thorlos nun sinabi niya na wala daw sila pasok. Yun pala, totoong merong Pasig Day.

Nakakapagtaka naman talaga ang mga ganito. Akala ko, fiesta lang sa isang lugar pag pista ng kanilang patron. Napaisip tuloy ako, sino ba ang Patron ng Pasig? Meron ba silang Santo? Double Check ko nga to, o baka birthday lang ng kanilang government official.

Pasig City

Pasig City

Mayor Robert “Bobby” Eusebio said the date has been declared a special city-wide holiday under Presidential Proclamation No. 1805 to give way to the 436th Araw ng Pasig (Pasig Day).

Antanda na pala ng Pasig. 436 years in existence na pala siya. Naaalala ko tuloy yung Alamat ng Pasig river. Nagmula daw ito sa words na “Paz Sigue Me” which means “Paz Save Me” or “Paz iligtas mo ako”. Minsan daw kasing may Kastila na nalunod sa ilog at sumisigaw siya ng saklolo sa kanyang kasintahan na Pinay. Hindi ko alam kung nailigtas ang Kastila o hindi, basta ang alam ko, hanggang ngayon e dumadaloy pa rin ang tubig sa ilog.

FYI: sa Makati po ako nagwo-work. Kelan na nga ba ang Araw ng Makati?
