Merry Christmas to all!

And a happy birthday to my wonderful Mom! Yes, she has the same birthday as the day of Christmas. =) Hope everyone is having a great Christmas. And to my friends in the Philippines, I hope you guys had a great Christmas too. I just love how this season brings all the good out of all people.

I give love and peace to everyone for this Christmas day. May all your worries and sorrows may somehow be forgotten even just for one day to appreciate the love that surrounds us all in this special day.

And let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas - the birth of the baby Jesus Christ.
Here's a clip from "A Charlie Brown Christmas" with Linus explaining the true meaning of Christmas after Charlie exasperatingly said "as if there's anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?"

Not everyone believes in this, but for me the true meaning of Christmas is being together with the people you love sharing laughter and memories while celebrating the birth of our Savior.


Merry Christmas everyone! Love you Ma!

Imagine John Today

Today marks John Lennon's 30th death anniversary. It's pretty interesting what he would be doing if he's still around today. His music and his contributions in promoting peace and unity will last forever. May he rest his lovely soul in heaven.

"What they want is dead heroes, like Sid Vicious and James Dean," he said. "I'm not interested in being a dead f------ hero ... so forget 'em, forget 'em." 

"But there will be no smoke bombs, no lipstick, no flashing lights. It just has to be comfy. But we could have a laugh. We're born-again rockers, and we're starting over ... There's plenty of time, right? Plenty of time."
-John Lennon 5 December 1980

And then three days later he died, what a sad thought. Just three days before he was happy and jolly about making music again. Curse that Chapman that shot him. But things happen, such a tragic thing to happen to John though. We'll forever be grateful for the talents you shared to us John. Rest in peace.
