London 2012 Opening Ceremonies Review

After four years, London etches itself on historical stones once again as they host the Olympic games for 2012 staging itself through an opening dubbed as the "Isles of Wonder".

The Ceremony reflected what are the primary values that will surround the Games that goes beyond the sporting event through inspiration, urban revitalization and the youth itself. It was British people's pinnacle of creativity.

Director Danny Boyle, known for his theatrical successes for “Trainspotting”, “Slumdog Millionaire” and Great Britain stage production of “Frankenstein,” gave the London Olympics 2012 the applause it deserves as it celebrated Britain's culture in the most powerful of ways.

Honestly, it wasn't as awe-inspiring as Beijing Olympics Opening but the fact that it connected well with the world through human narratives is worth a thumbs up.

"Isles of Wonder" was actually delightful at times. The Queen parachuting into the stadium as a Bond girl? Awesome. Rowen Atki…

How to be a Champion

The invitation to attend this life-changing forum couldn't come any better as I could definitely say that before the event, I was in the state of my life where I have lost my passion after a lot of unfortunate things ravaging me, one after the other.

But hearing from the people, who the world hails as champions in their own right, I realized that there is so much more than the challenges we face. Our finances, relationships, stress and some other things that punch us down to rock bottom is, in fact, healthy because when you are down there is no way to look but up. 

I have been to countless summits, leadership training and conferences but I have never been this inspired. Learning determination from a well-rounded sports journalist, instilling active family values from a celebrity couple and championing resourcefulness and world-class cadence from a popular all-Filipino sports team, the LH Leadership Conference's theme of becoming a winner in life could never be more perfect and …

David Cook Tantalizes Cebu Fans with Unbeatable Energy Level

The Heavens has arranged it for me to be able to watch David Cook's concert without shelling out top dollar. Indeed, his' was a stellar performance that I hope would not be my last.

Concerts like this serves as a validation to his crown and that he is not just an Idol, but in fact an artist of high-class calibre in this generation, a legend waiting for his statue to be erected.
Tagging my dad along on a beautiful misty Sunday, June 15th, we soon found ourselves speeding up along the streets in the likes of an action movie. As time kept ticking, we were looking around for a tight parking spot as everyone has hoarded the multilevel basement parking of the Waterfront Cebu Hotel, the venue. We ended up at the IT Park, a healthy walk away. To note, we have not even taken our dinner yet hoping to get there on time and hell we did.

As we went inside the lobby, a certain energy can be felt as all people flocked to the huge ballroom all ecstatic to see the American Idol himself. I'…
