Secretary Yap proposition of cutting one cup rice down to half serving at food chains is how ridiculous our leaders have become; according to the Secretary this was a recommendation by food outlets and restos claiming that dining Pinoys now does not consume one full cup.

I’m not a fan of any bands especially of a rock band for start. (Can I say Christians doesn’t like rock bands!?!) But the story behind Arnel Pineda’s “discovery” as the Journey’s new lead singer is totally mind-blowing! I have read news about it here and here and also some other blogs about him here and it was indeed a rock 'n roll fairy tale! I’m actually quite too late to read about these news but when I learned about this, I tried to search the net and Youtube to hear how he really sounds like. He was right when he said he will never be “Steve Perry” (the voice) but the way I hear it – he is very, very good! (I don't understand why some comments are so negative. The story here is that Journey hired him because he got an amazing voice and not because he sounded like SP -- What's wrong about that?) Well... Anyway... I just don’t know whether he will keep up with his voice especially when the band got a very tight concert tour schedules (As in almost everyday! --Salabat na lang nga dyan!).

I have been keeping an eye for good news about Filipino talents. These good news will at least change some perception on how other countries look at us (yeah, talking about corruption and all that...) On the list are individuals who made our country proud:

  • Charice Pempengco: have been invited by Ellen DeGeneres to guest in her show after she had seen her clips in youtube;
  • Ramiele Malubay: by far got great chances with American Idol 7
  • Vincent Bueno: won in an Austrian singing competition "Musical! The Show"
  • Manny Pacquiao: (huh? ) yeah, though he sings, he belong to a different category thus kindly ignore him from the list, hehehehe!!! (I just felt like mentioning his name-- he too made our country proud after all!)

Some of our singers are already in the business for to a certain extent but these singers I mentioned above are instantly recognized in other countries just like that. For Arnel, he will be singing to Journey’s fans who never even heard his name before but he will be singing as if he was the original vocalist. Unlike other Filipino singers who go on world tours, Arnel will not be singing to Filipino fans but to other nationalities – will that make him one of the full-blooded Filipinos with the most number of international listeners?

At least for now, Filipino singers are getting to be recognized internationally (again)... I wonder when the last time was???
