Heejun Han Leaves, Jessica Stays in American Idol


Heejun Han got the boot last night while Jessica Sanchez landed in the top 8 of the American Idol season 11.

The 22-year-old non-profit organizer from New York received the fewest viewer votes. Skylar Laine and Hollie Cavanaugh joined him in this week’s bottom 3. The judges opted not to save Heejun saying that the young singer already saw this coming as he has been in the bottom of the pack for the last few weeks.

The “American Idol” Top 9 contestants got to sing their own idol's songs this week with rocker Stevie Nicks as their mentor.

Most of the Top 9's performances impressed the judges. Sanchez gave a slowed down rendition of Beyonce’s "Sweet Dreams." Randy Jackson said Sanchez is the best singer he's heard in years.

The Filipino-Mexican-American singer will continue her American Idol journey as she landed in the top 8 of the hit talent show. She has consistently won praise from the judges. Randy Jackson even predicted that Sanchez and Nashville native Colton Dixon might be competing in the finale in May.

Sinong Mag-aakala Lyrics

Sinong mag aakala na ika’y magiging akin
Sinong maniniwalang ang isang katulad mo’y
Umibig sa ‘sang tulad ko na tila wala nang pag-asang
Makadama pa ng 'sang pag-ibig na tunay at wagas

Para lang akong nanaginip ng gising
Para lang akong lumulutang sa hangin at
Salamat sayo nagkakulay muli ang mundo

Sinong mag-aakala na ika’y mapapasakin
sinong maniniwalang na ikaw
ang laging nasa puso ko at damdamin
wala nang ibang mamahalin
pangako ko lamang sayo
pag ibig ko’y tunay at wagas

Para lang akong nanaginip ng gising
Para lang akong lumulutang sa hangin
At salamat sayo nagkakulay muli ang mundo

Para lang akong nanaginip ng gising
At para lang akong lumulutang sa hangin
At salamat sayo, salamat sayo, salamat sayo
nagkakulay muli ang mundo

Da Facebook Song Lyrics

May nag friend suggest sayo
Kaya pinuntahan ko ang Facebook page mo
Bigla ko lang napansin
Kamukha mo pala si Solenn
Sa tingin pa lang ng iyong mata
Nabighani na ang puso kong ito

Ang ganda ganda mo
Nainlove ako sa profile pic mo
Did Belo touch your skin,
Pwede kang pang FHM
Kailan kaya tayo magtatagpo?

Pwede ba akong manligaw?
Status mo naman it’s complicated now
Sinubukan kong mag “Hi” sa wall mo
Mag “hi” sa wall mo
At ni-like mo pa at ni-like ko rin
Di mapigilan bugso ng damdamin

Ang ganda ganda mo
Nainlove ako sa profile pic mo
Did Belo touch your skin?
Pwede kang pang FHM
Kailan kaya tayo magtatagpo
Ooohh
Ooohh

Ininvite kitang mag mall
Sa may Ayala doon mag eyeball
At nung tayo’y magharap
Nakita ko ang bata mo pala haay
Natawa ako sa sarili ko
Naka Photo shop pala ang picture mo

Ang daya daya mo
Naloko mo ako sa profile pic mo
Magkaedad kayo
Ng youngest sister ko
Goodbye muna sayo
Goodbye, goodbye,
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye…
Goodbye, goodbye….

Di Mo Na Kaya Lyrics

Hindi ko na alam, kung saang bahagi na umiikot,
Umuulit, tulad ng sirang plaka
Lahat na ng pansin, kahit na anong gawin
Paulit-ulit ka para kang sirang plaka

Chorus:
At kung di mo na kaya,
Sabihin mo nang magkaalaman na kung pano to’
at kung san ka masaya, ika-liligaya ko,
kahit na ako’y nagdurugo.


Hindi kona alam, Kung saan ‘tong babagsak
nag hanap ng dahilan kung paano titikman
naghanap ng bagong trip, sumakay sa kabilang jeep
Saan ka pupunta? at ayaw mo kong sama

Chorus:
At kung di mo na kaya,
Sabihin mo nang magkaalaman na kung pano to’
at kung san ka masaya, ika-liligaya ko,
kahit na ako’y nagdurugo.

Chorus:
At kung di mo na kaya,
Sabihin mo nang magkaalaman na kung pano to’
at kung san ka masaya, ika-liligaya ko,
kahit na ako’y nagdurugo.

Paalam Kahapon Lyrics


Paalam na kahapon
kay layo na pala ng noon
‘Di ko inakalang
Darating ang umagang ito

Parang kanina lamang
Nung tayo ay mga batang
Walang kinatatakutan
Sa bukas ay walang pakialam

Iwanan man kita
Nakaukit ka na sa puso ko
Malilimot ba kita
Nakaukit ka na sa puso ko

Paalam na kahapon
Kailangan na ako ng ngayon
Alaala mo’y ikakahon
Ngunit kailan ma’y hindi kayang itapon

Tila utos ng mundong mabuhay
Akong pasulong, at ‘wag paurong
Patawarin mo ako kung
Unti-unti akong binago ng mundo... ng mundo

Iwanan man kita
Nakaukit ka na sa puso ko
Malilimot ba kita
Kung nakaukit ka na...

Iwanan man kita
Nakaukit ka na sa puso ko
Malilimot ba kita
Nakaukit ka na sa puso ko

Lego House Lyrics


I'm gonna pick up the pieces,
and build a lego house
if things go wrong we can knock it down

My three words have two meanings,
there's one thing on my mind
It's all for you

And it's dark in a cold December,
but I've got ya to keep me warm
and if you're broken I will mend ya and keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
and out of all these things I've done
I think I love you better now

I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done
I think I love you better now, now

I'm gonna paint you by numbers
and colour you in
if things go right we can frame it, and put you on a wall

And it's so hard to say it but I've been here before
and I will surrender up my heart
and swap it for yours

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
and out of all these things I've done
I think I love you better now

I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done
I think I love you better now

Don't hold me down
I think my braces are breaking
and it's more than I can take

And if it's dark in a cold December,
I've got ya to keep me warm
and if you're broken then I will mend ya
and keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on, now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
and out of all these things I've done
I think I love you better now

I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done
I think I love you better now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
and out of all these things I've done
I will love you better now

I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done
I think I love you better now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
and out of all these things I've done
I will love you better now

Azkals lost to Turkmenistan, 1-2


The Philippine Football Team Azkals suffered a heartbreaking defeat to Turkmenistan this Friday at their semifinal match at the AFC Challenge Cup 2012 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Azkals, playing without key players Angel Guirado, James Younghusband and Jason Sabio, lost to Turkmenistan, 1-2 at full-time.

The Azkals enjoyed an early lead with a header by Striker Phil Younghusband in the 25th minute. However, the Turkmenistan Green Men showed tremendous character as they dominated the midfield and continue to attack the goal. They tied the game in the 80th minute and sealed the victory with another goal in the 85th minute. To make matters worse, goalkeeper Neil Etheridge received a red card and was ejected from the game a few minutes before the game ends.

The Azkals played without the services of James Younghusband and Angel Guirado, who each incurred their second yellow card in their match with Tajikistan. Another player, Jason Sabio, was also forced to sit out the Turkmenistan match due to a knee injury.

But it was a great run for the Azkals considering that they toppled two former champions on their way to the semifinals. They beat 2008 champion India and 2006 titlist Tajikistan.

The Philippine team has never won a title in international football competition.
The last time the Philippines reached the finals was in 1925 in the Far Eastern Games wherein the country finished in second place.

The Azkals will face Palestine on Monday for the third place. Palestine bowed to defending champion North Korea in the other semifinal clash, 2-0.

Azkals faces Turkmenistan on AFC Challenge Cup Semis


The Philippine Azkals will face AFC Challenge Cup 2010 runner-up Turkmenistan this Friday at the Dasrath Stadium in Kathmandu, Nepal. The two teams will square off to determine which team will earn a ticket to the Challenge Cup finals.

The Azkals appear to be the stronger team as they enjoy a higher FIFA ranking than Turkmenistan. The Philippines is No. 156 while Turkmenistan is ranked 166th in the FIFA rankings.

However, the Azkals will have to play the semifinal match without two key players. Angel Guirado and James Younghusband each got their second yellow card in their match against Tajikistan.

Team coach Michael Weiss is expected to make adjustments to fill in the void left by the two key players.

"Suspensions happen in football. We don't cry or lament about what happened as I have a squad of players that always want to play,” the German football coach said on the AFC website.

“This means we are bringing in fresh legs and players who are looking forward to playing their first match in the tournament," Weiss added.

Moving Closer Lyrics (Close Up Song)

When you smile, everything’s in place
I’ve waited so long, can make no mistake
All I am reaching out to you
I can’t be scared, got to make a move
While we're young, come away with me
Keep me close and don’t let go

Inch by inch, we’re moving closer
Feels like a fairytale ending
Take my heart, this is the moment
I’m moving closer to you
I’m moving closer to you!!!

Who’d have thought that I’d breathe the air
Spinning around your atmosphere
I’ll hold my breath, falling into you
Break my fall and don’t let go

Inch by inch, we’re moving closer
Feels like a fairytale ending
Take my heart, this is the moment
I’m moving closer to you

Inch by inch, we’re moving closer
Feels like a fairytale ending
Take my heart, this is the moment
I’m moving closer to you

Moving closer....
Closer to you...
Moving closer...

Jessica Sanchez is top pick to win American Idol


Filipino-Mexican-American contestant Jessica Sanchez is still favored to win the 11th Season of American Idol according to Entertainment Weekly. The US magazine placed the 16-year-old from San Diego, California on top of their American Idol rankings for a second week in a row.

The rankings were based on the contestants' performances last week which showed Jessica Sanchez giving her own rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You." Her performance wowed the audience and was given a standing ovation from all three judges.

“How could I not give the top spot to the 16-year-old after a pitch-perfect cover of Whitney Houston's '’I Will Always Love You'?” Entertainment Weekly writer Annie Barrett wrote in this week’s ranking.

Contestant Hollie Cavanaugh is on No. 2 after her performance of Houston’s “All the Man That I Need” while Phillip Phillips Jr. was ranked No. 3.

Sanchez was born to a Mexican-American father and a Filipina mother, Editha, who originally hailed from Bataan.

She is the fifth contestant with Filipino blood who made it as a finalist in "American Idol." Jasmine Trias landed on the Top 3 and Camille Velasco made it to top 9 of season 3.

Thia Megia was part of the Top 11 in the show's previous season and Ramiele Malubay made it to the Top 9 on season 7.

In Love With You Lyrics

Christian:
Just a gentle whisper, told me that you'd gone
Leaving only memories, where did we go wrong?
I couldn't find the words then, so let me say them now
I'm still in love with you

Angeline:
Tell me that you love me, tell me that you care
Tell me that you need me, and I'll be there
I'll be there waiting

I will always love you, I will always stay true
There's no one who loves you like I do
Come to me now

Together:
I will never leave you, I will stay here with you
Through the good and bad I will stand true
I'm in love with you

Christian:
Now we're here together, yesterday has past
Life is just beginning, close to you at last
And I promise to you, I will always be there
I give my all to you

Together:
Living life without you is more than I can bear
Hold me close forever,
I'll be there....
I'll be there for you
I will always love you, I will always stay true
There's no one who loves you like I do
This I promise...

I will never leave you, I will stay here with you
Through the good and bad I will stand true
Hold me closer...

Our love is forever, holding us together
Nothing in this world can stop us now
Love has found, love has found a way

Yeah... love has found a way

I'm in love (I'm so in love), I'm in love
Yes, I'm in love, so in love
I'm in love with you

The Philippine National Football team Azkals will attempt to snatch the remaining semifinal berth of the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup when it goes up against Tajikistan in Nepal this Tuesday. This is a must-win for the Azkals if they want to join North Korea, Turkmenistan and Palestine in the semifinals.

The team from Tajikistan also called the Persian Lions ranked number 145 in the FIFA list while the Azkals ranked number 153 in the world. However, the Philippine team is enjoying a boost in their confidence as they are coming off a 2-0 triumph over former champion India. The team from Tajikistan, on the other hand, suffered from a 2-0 loss from North Korea.

The Tajikistan Persian Lions have always been a strong competitor in the AFC Challenge Cup, having won the title in 2006 and it reached the semifinals in 3 consecutive times.

Azkals win over the 2008 Challenge Cup champion India was a history of sorts for the Philippine national team, as it was the first time they defeated this team.
An article posted on the AFC Challenge Cup website tagged Phil Younghusband as the man to watch as the Azkals faces Tajikistan. Younghusband scored in the 11th and 74th minutes of their game last Sunday over India that sent the 2008 AFC Challenge Cup.

The game will be aired live on Studio 23, Tajikisitan vs. Philippines on March 13, Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. (kick-off at 5:15 p.m.)

“Tuloy lyrics”

Kahit na anong mangyari
Ang Lungkot ay mapapawi
Buksan na ang saya
Malilimutan ang problema.
(Sarah)

Di ka na magiisa
Sasamahan ka san man magpunta
Sasabay sa pag-ikot mundoy makulay
Hayaan mong mabigyan ng saya
Ang iyong buhay
(Gary)

Sa harap at likod, kaliwa at kanan ko
Hintayin mo lang di mag tatagal marararanasan mo
(Sarah/Gary)

Chorus
Tuloy lang ang saya
Tuloy lang ang ligaya
Tuloy lang talaga
Kaibigan at pamilya
(Iwanan na ang lungkot)
(Iwanan na ang inis)
Basta’t habang naririto ako
Tuloy ang happiness
(Sarah/Gary)

Saan ka man naroroon
Sa gitna ng noon at ng ngayon
Sumisigaw
Umaapaw
Nangingibabaw
(Rex)

Sa harap at likod, kaliwa at kanan ko
Hintayin mo lang di mag tatagal mararanasan mo
(Rex)

Repeat Chorus 2x

Tuloy ang Happiness…
(Sarah/Gary/Rex)

PBB Unlimited: Nominees for Eviction


With only 20 days to go before the Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited Big Night, the list of the housemates nominated for this week's eviction night was revealed. Four housemates were nominated by their fellow housemates and with this week's rule, one vote from a fellow housemate is a ticket for an automatic nomination and a possible eviction.

Biggel, Carlo, Divine and Slater were voted by the other housemates. Their fate now lies in the hands of the voting public. Pamu and Tin did not receive a single vote from any of the other housemates so they are safe for this week's eviction.

It was also announced that they will only be counting one vote per SIM hence showing "the power of 1."


Meanwhile, more surprises await the housemates this week as three former PBB Big Winners will be gracing the show. PBB Big Winners Nene Tamayo, Beatriz Saw and Keanna Reeves will enter the PBB House as "Kuya's Fairy Godmothers."

Support your favorite housemates and vote wisely!

Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang Trailer

Are you looking for a movie to watch with your loved ones? Why not try a local film for a change and help the movie industry in the Philippines?

I was watching the evening news on TV when my attention was caught by the trailer of this movie which I can say is not a typical horror movie trailer. From the trailer, it appears to be a horror and suspense movie mixed with a love story in the local Filipino setting. I can say that the cinematography is superb and the story looks promising.

The movie is top billed by Erich Gonzales and Derek Ramsay.

Directed by Richard Somes and produced by Skylight Films, Reality Entertainment & Star Cinema, the film is set to open in theaters nationwide on March 14, 2012.

Below is the synopsis of the movie taken from iWantv.com:

Coming from a tragic past during World War II, Corazon only wanted one thing in life- to conceive a child. A loving wife to Daniel, she wishes that their five-year marriage be blessed with a baby. But fate has not been helpful as all her efforts at conception seemed futile. Together with Daniel, they leave town in search for a woman who could possibly help her. She is given a statue of San Gerardo, the patron saint of pregnant women, and was told to keep her faith no matter what happens. Her devotion pays off when she finally bears a child. On the day of the child’s birth, they found the baby dead. Corazon’s world is shattered. She has kept her faith but her child was taken from her. Corazon’s anger envelopes the town in horror as a child dies each night. Can Corazon ever forgive the fate she has suffered? Will she lift her curse to spare the innocent children in their town? Will her love for Daniel prevail over the hatred in her heart? Or will her wrath live on up to the present day and remind everyone of the story behind the first aswang?

Better Than I Know Myself Lyrics

Cold as ice
And more bitter than a December
Winter night
That's how I treated you
And I know that I
I sometimes tend to lose my temper
And I cross the line
Yeah that's the truth

I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now,
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

All along
I tried to pretend it didn't matter
If I was alone
But deep down I know
If you were gone
For even a day I wouldn't know which way to turn
Cause I'm lost without you.


I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now,
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

I get kind of dark
Let it go too far
I can be obnoxious at times
But try and see my heart
Cause I need you need now
So don't let me down
You're the only thing in this world I would die without

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now,
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

English Translation:

The winter had passed
And the spring has come
We have withered
And our hearts are bruised from longing

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

Under the same sky, at different places
Because you and i are dangerous
I am leaving you
One letter difference from ‘nim’^
It’s cowardly but i’m hiding because i’m not good enough
Cruel breakup is like the end of the road of love
No words can comfort me
Perhaps my lifetime’s last melodrama
Now its final curtain is coming down

I was born and i met you
And i have loved you to death
My cold heart that has been dyed blue
Even with my eyes closed, i can’t feel you

The winter had passed
And the spring has come
We have withered
And our hearts are bruised from longing

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

I feel like my heart has stopped beating
You and i, frozen there, after a war
Trauma, that has been carved in my head
Once these tears dry up, i will moistly remember my love
I’m neither painful nor lonely
Happiness is all self-talk
I can’t stand something more complicated
It’s no big deal, i don’t care
Inevitable wandering, people come and go

I was born and i met you
And i have loved you to death
My cold heart that has been dyed blue
Even if you have left, i’m still here

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

Again tonight, underneath that blue moonlight
I will probably fall asleep alone
Even in my dreams, i look for you
And wander around while singing this song

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh
