DUYOG (Accompaniment) (A Visayan song)

I live in a country with thousands of islands so we also have hundreds of dialects. I speak Bisaya, Filipino and English. Bisaya is my mother tongue, Filipino is our national language and English is our second language. I read books in English, watch movies in Filipino but in my daily life, I use Bisaya. I don’t usually sing songs in Bisaya because I am not used to it until one day, I stumbled into this Bisaya song which I personally think is not the usual Bisaya song I hear. And after hearing this song, I am more than excited to hear more songs like this to globalize Bisaya dialect. I hope there would be more and more Bisaya songs in the making.

This is actually a winning piece from the first ever VISPOP competition in the Philippines. The singer is a 20 year old Jewel Villaflores who composed this song together with her brother. It is a shame that I just found out about this song today. It is a great song that I think deserves more attention.

This is the English translation.

You are the priced possession
I’ve longed for
You are the star
In my dark ocean

You are the only one
I will love
You are the only one
My words are true

You are my wind
You are my rain
You are my heaven
And my world

You are the only one I will love
You are the only one
My words are true

(Chorus)
You are my yesterday
You are my today
You are my everyday
My words are true
Listen to my heart
Accompanied by this guitar
You are not alone
You are my love
You

You are the sweetness
My happiness nothing can compare to
Are you even aware?
that behind this smile

You are the only one I will love
You are the only one
My words are true

(Chorus)
You are my yesterday
You are my today
You are my everyday
My words are true
Listen to my heart
Accompanied by this guitar
You are not alone
You are my love
You

~I hope to be able to compose a song like this~

Cebu Trick Art Museum

It was one sunny fine day when me and my friends decided to visit a museum. It’s not a historical museum though but a trick art museum. I personally enjoy art but I am not knowledgeable enough with the different artists. We enjoyed taking pictures in the museum. There were like 40 paintings and we took pictures with everything. It was fun and interesting. The paintings were painted in 3D so it looked like we were part of the paintings itself.

Here are the pictures we had.

I wanna dance with a ballerina and be a ballerina myself.

These smart creatures surely know how to take pictures with cellphones.

We had plenty of pictures but I will just have to post only some. I love to go to museums and any museums would be interesting for me. Would you pay this museum a visit?

It is located in Jcenter mall, Mandaue City Cebu. It cost around 400 per person including the 4D ride which is not in the picture. I don’t know really but the 4D ride was not my piece of cake.

Promise Yourself Only the Best

Promise yourself to dream more and hesitate less.

To believe in yourself more and judge yourself less by the accomplishments of others.

To appreciate your family and friends for the wonderful ways they make your life better.

Promise yourself to accept life as it comes and truly make each day special.

To become more independent and more willing to change.

To fill your life with special times,

and make your dreams come true.
