I Believe



I believe…
That we don’t have to change friends

if we understand that friends change.
I believe…
That no matter how good a friend is,

they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and,

you must forgive them for that.
I believe…
That true friendship continues to grow,

even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
I believe…
That you can do something in an instant

that will give you heartache for life.
I believe…
That it’s taking me a long time to become

the person I want to be.
I believe…
That you should always leave loved ones

with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I believe…
That you can keep going long after you can’t.
I believe…
That we are responsible for what we do,

no matter how we feel.
I believe…
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I believe…
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done

when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I believe…
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.
I believe…
That my best friend and I can do anything or

nothing and have the best time!
I believe…
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
I believe…
That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
I believe…
That just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.
I believe…
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
I believe…
That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I believe…
That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
I believe…
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
I believe…
That just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.
I believe…
That you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret.

It could change your life forever.
I believe…
That two people can look at the exact same thing

and see something totally different.
I believe…
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.
I believe…
That even when you think you have no more to give,

when a friend cries out to you, you will find

the strength to help.
I believe…
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
I believe…
That the people you care about most in life are the essence of life.
Tell them today how much you love them and what they mean to you.

In the course of our lives …there are problems, ups and downs, loss of family members, friends ,the one you love most in life or maybe a job loss, and  you have to face  a fight

to regain your own self again normally because of these causes…

It is difficult but having  trust to oneself and determination to fight this battle for yourself …

Then the Battle is Fought


What matters most in Life…

There are two things  to  aim  at in Life..  

First…  to  get what we want.

Second… to enjoy it

And whatever  we achieved from our aims in life, I

suppose  we should enjoy it because life is so beautiful,

No matter what we have had in our lives.


” Someone “….

To all  Someone  dear to me ... who have touched my heart and my life in so many ways …

thank you

Life is a Journey

Life is a journey through many terrain
From gardens of pleasure to deserts of pain
From an ocean of love to a jungle of hate
From mountains of glory to canyons of fate

There’s a highway for joy and a highway for sorrow
A road for today and a road for tomorrow
So choose your path wisely and walk with care
If you follow your heart, you’ll find your way there

I’ve been to the garden and planted seeds there
I’ve been to the desert and felt the despair
I’ve swam in the ocean and drank of it’s wine

I climbed up the mountain to touch the sky
I went to the canyon and started to cry
I’ve traveled both highways,
Both today and tomorrow

I’ve basked in the joy and wallowed in sorrow
My path has been chosen and
I’ve walked it with care
I followed my heart and I’m on my way there

So I’ll just keep walking till I find what I’m after
Through mountains and oceans and

Gardens of laughter

Enjoy Life

I’m Already There…

He called her on the road, from a lonely hotel room,

Just to say to hear her say I love you one more time

But when he heard the sound, of kids laughing on the background

He had to wipe away a tear from his eye.

A little voice came on the phone, Said Daddy when are you coming home

He said the first thing that came to his mind.

I’m already there, take a look around

I’m the sunshine in your hair, I’m the shadow on your ground

I’m the whisper in the wind, I’m your imaginary friend

And I know I’m in your prayers, OH; I’M ALREADY THERE:

She got back on the phone, said I really miss you darling,

Don’t worry about the kids ,they’re alright,

Wish I was in your arm, lying right there beside you

But I know I’ll be in your dreams tonight, and I’ll gently kiss your lips

Touch you with my finger tips, So turn out the light

And close your eyes,,I’M ALREADY THERE:

Don’t make a sound, I’m the beat of your heart

I’m the moonlight shining down, I’m the whisper in the wind,

And I’ll be there until the end, Can we feel the love that we share


We maybe thousand miles apart,but I’ll be with you wherever you are,

I’m already there, take a look around,

I’m the sunshine in your hair,I’m the shadow on your ground

I’m the whisper in the wind, and I’ll be there until the end

Can you feel the love that we share

My Country..

A tribute to the classic art of Fernando Amorsolo, the powerful filipino song, Bayan ko, and the timeless artist, Kuh Ledesma.
The song is taken from Kuh’s newest album, K. It is a precious collection of filipino songs given a neo-ethnic sound through the expertise of Bob Aves. This album is The Philippines’ proud contribution to World Music.
Though the song may promote nationalism, let us not forget that we are all ONE. Let this be a celebration of the beauty of diversity and uniqueness. Any thing unique, we value. Any thing we value, we lovingly accept


Tagalog ( Filipino) Lyrics

Ang bayan kong Pilipinas
Lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak
Pag-ibig na sa kanyang palad
Nag-alay ng ganda’t dilag.
At sa kanyang yumi at ganda
Dayuhan ay nahalina
Bayan ko, binihag ka
Nasadlak sa dusa.
Ibon mang may layang lumipad
kulungin mo at umiiyak
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag
Ang di magnasang makaalpas!
Pilipinas kong minumutya
Pugad ng luha ko’t dalita
Aking adhika,
Makita kang sakdal laya!

Here is the translation in  English lyrics “Bayan Ko  (My Country)”

My country the Philippines
Land of gold and flowers
With love in her palms
She offers beauty and virtue.
And of her modesty and beauty
The foreigner was attracted
O, my country, you were enslaved
Mired in hardship.
Even birds that are free to fly
Cage them and they cry,
Much more a beautiful country
Shall long to be free.
Philippines my beloved,
Cradle of my tears and poverty
I’ll aspire,
To see you truly free.

written by Eddie Aguilar a Filipino Folk singer and song composer.


Yesterday morning ..  I was bound to work , it was my turn to drive and pick my colleague  up.We take turns in driving for the sake of our beautiful environment and of course we save   money for it.  On our way, it came to a topic, about people in my country of origin, the Philippines. I haven’t forgotten  at all my roots and the country where  I was born.  I have lived in Europe for over 30 years now, I  lived  in England and grounded a family in Germany.  My grandmother ,from my mom’s side which I have visited  almost every year,  lived  with her other sisters in Chicago  and some other members of the family, she passed away a couple of years ago. My mother passed away  three years ago now in the Philippines.

The topic came  in the  1990s about the women working  in her country ( JAPAN) in the clubs as barmaids , singers or sorry but I have to say..from her own words ..prostitutes. In the 1990, as far as I know officially, there were jobs offered to women from the Philippines, trained as singers and dancers and not as Pro…..tes.  These women were in fact were forced to do the kind of job they wanted them to do.  It’s sad because they didn’t choose to be there as …. It was found out that these people who offered jobs were connected to suckers and gangsters.  Many of these women were trapped deeply, not knowing what to do.These gangers hold there passports , they could never go out freely  as they wanted or leave until they are released. One could not even imagine how they were able to pay all there expenses to apply a job. It caused them to borrow money from the banks or from friends or relatives. I  will not say I’m lucky but I’m fortunate not to experience such things but so sad to say .. they haven’t  chosen how they are now for many reasons or no  one have chosen to be poor. Many wanted to live a descent life with a descent job not being used and misused by people who have power in their hands. Thanks that the  Philippine government have reacted to these matter.  At end of her topic , I said to her, before you judge them and what they do,  and so with my country get to know the facts and then judge whatever. I  further said ,visit the Philippines and you will get to know the bad, the good, the ugly and the beautiful.   ***  connie***

This is the original song, sang by the original singer and song writer


Tell Me Why ?. A Chidren’s Tribute


Tell Me Why

In my dream, children sing
A song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue and fields are green
And laughter is the language of the world
Then i wake and all i see
Is a world full of people in need

Tell me why(why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something i have missed?
Tell me why (why) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Everyday i ask myself
What will i have to do to be a man?
Do i have to stand and fight
To prove to everybody who i am?
Is that what my life is for
To waste in a world full of war?

Tell me why(why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something i have missed?
Tell me why (why) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

tell me why? tell me why?
tell me why? tell me why?
just tell me why, why, why?

Tell me why(why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something i have missed?
Tell me why (why) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Tell me why (why,why,does the tiger run)
Tell me why(why why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why,why do we never learn)
Can someone tell us why we let the forest burn?
(why,why do we say we care)
Tell me why(why,why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why(why,why do the dolphins cry)
Can some one tell us why we let the ocean die?
(why,why if we’re all the same)
Tell me why(why,why do we pass the blame)
Tell me why (why,why does it never end)


The Impossible Dream……

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where the brave dare not go

To right the unreachable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right, without question or pause
To be willing to march, march into hell
For that heavenly cause

And I know,if I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest that my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm, when I’m laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove with His last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable, the unreachable,
The unreachable star

And I’ll always dream the impossible dream
Yes, and I’ll reach the unreachable star

an excellent cover version of an old song by the late great Luther Vandross


In This Song


How will I know where I’m going now

This broken road is trying to tear me down

But deep inside I found A sacred place

That I never knew where I feel safe when the road is untrue

Here’s what I learned to do just sing this song

Where I belong
And every day there’s a new bridge to cross

But I’m never far from home

If I bring my heart, my soul, my own.. In this song

No…I don’t depend on friends

Cause they come and go, My belief in myself
Is gonna carry me through, that’s why I’m learning

That’s why I’m learning
Oh…That’s why I’m learning
I’m learning now, I’m ready to sing
Just sing this song and it takes me right back
Where I belong

And every day there’s a new bridge to cross

But I’m never far from home

If I put my heart, my soul, my own
I may not have all the words

That I need to say and

Though I won’t always be strong

But I’m never afraid

Cause I hold my destiny, it depends on me

Alone, alone…

So, just sing this song and it takes me right back
Where I belong
And every day there’s a new bridge to cross

But I’m never far from home

If I give it my heart, my soul, my own

I keep giving my heart, my soul, my own

In this song, In this song

The bottom line is that there is only one person that you can depend on, and that person is YOU!!!
That’s why I can not blame others anymore. Just do my best and count on myself!
