New Year’s Revolution: The Revolution Begins

“It was bitter work, but the results were worth it”

After almost 2 months in the planning, finally! the Revolution begins!

New Year’s Revolution is just a crazy idea to showcased the students of the University of the Cordilleras their talents, and skills in dancing through friendly competition. This began when UC FUEGO became an official organization to this school, and has been creating programs for the benefit of the students. In the creation of this event came the very challenging times or should I say the Dark Ages of the said organi13699950_1118332228224617_7966404072415063973_nzation.

This Organization together with IT Society and the University Student Council struggled in making this event possible with a short span of preparation, they made sure that this event will push through. With only limited resources and limited time, they managed to finish their work and produced an event that will revolutionize the traditions of every competition that was created inside the university.

According to the President of Fuego the creation of the event was so chaotic that they came to a point that they want to cancel the event due to many errors, starting with the projectors, down to the sounds. But they didn’t quit under pressure and still pursue on making this event possible in which it did. 13726758_1127537390599943_7638337217424582999_n

During the event the Presidents of the 3 organizations didn’t watched the program, instead they made sure that the flow of the program goes smoothly. Even made them run around behind the scenes of the program just to make sure that their in sync because during the program they made necessary changes to the flow just to make the program much more better. It was very tiring to them considering that there were so many technical difficulties that happened during the event, but in the end everything went well. After the event was done everybody was so happy to the extent that they forget how tired and stressed they are in producing this event. Everyone had a good time especially the audience and the competitors of the said competition.

Having 5 competitors the 7 judges picked the Best Performers of the competition namely; Jizelle Sumbad for the Female category and Othniel Dela Pena for the Male category. 

the Psychotics won 4t13686489_971351389630108_5075275696740560990_nh runner up, System Reboot as the 3rd runner up, Camaraderie of Groove as the 2nd runner, Ronin as the 1st runner, and Uptick as the New Year’s Revolution 2016 Champion. The event ended with happy faces and emotional moments, the 3 organizations plan to have a sequel to the event and make another Revolution.

Congratulations to all the winners and see you all again on the next Revolution.

Tick Tok Insanity

The feeling that you have so many things to do yet you have very little time to do it. How I wish that I can control time so that I can finish anything in a blink of an eye. 

Sometimes we need “ME, MYSELF, AND I TIME” because if you neglect yourself from having a good time once in a while, then you’ll burnout. It’s not bad to take a rest and think about yourself first rather than over working yourself and being stressed all the time.

As for me I have a lot of things to do. The Silew awards application, New year’s Revolution, Research paper, Choreography, Show your choreo, DBMS, System’s Architecture, Pasiklaban practices, Practices for NYR, sponsors, judges, posters, flyers, set ups, and all other responsibilities that needs to be done in a week. I’m on a verge of burning out because I don’t have the time and luxury to relax now because of all this things in mind. In order for me to relax and enjoy my own time, I must finish all my obligations and responsibilities before I end my term as the President real-timeof my Org.

It’s very difficult but this tasks are not impossible to do, their jus
t time consuming and what I need now is an extra 2 hrs in the clock. I just wish that there is a 15:00pm in a 12hr format (if you know what I mean). Time is upon us, it is constant yet, it is not enough to finish everything that you want in a given time, Whether you planned your day or not, it still doesn’t matter because when you concentrate on something, your focus on the time will be gone and you will be surprised and say that the time runs fast.

Hopefully everything will turn out fine, I just need a little help right now because these tasks can’t be done in just one day. I want the output of my work to be great, it’s like comparing quantity over quality. I want to focus more on the quality of my work instead of how I finished my work fast. In that way the people that I want to look at my outputs will be satisfied with my work because of efficiency and quality. Same with life, you must take it nice and slow in order for you to not miss a single thing along the way.

Oh well, going back to real life again.

New Year’s Revolution: Genesis (The Making)

I know it’s already June but there’s no such thing as an “old year”, not unless it is before 2016.

After almost 1 month of processing, finally it’s already on the go. This was just a CRAZY IDEA made for the students of the University of the Cordilleras, and was made real with the help of the USC and IT Society.

I’m so excited because finally my crazy idea will come to life, just like my 1st idea of creating a dance workshop for the students of UC. Now, the moment that I’ve been waiting for is coming fast. Hopefully everything will be alright and successful.

The date is set for the competitibegin_processon. On July 16, 2016, the 26th year anniversary of the biggest earthquake that hit Baguio City back in 1990. We will know who will start the Revolution in UC. A Revolution of it’s students, a change in culture, a change in attitude, and a change that will make UC be known for it’s extraordinary students with unique, and astonishing talents.

We still have a lot to take care of and hopefully everything will be fine. I believe that this event will be successful because of the hard work and dedication of my active members, USC, IT Society, and volunteers in order for this event to push through. We’re already around 60% in the process and I believe that it will be 150% during the event ( I hope so ).

Don’t be afraid of letting your ideas be heard, because you’ll never know the great impact of an idea once it is already been made. Creation came from an idea so don’t underestimate the power of the mind. Think of an idea now but create it tomorrow for the development of the future.

Why hate Lebron?

I’ve been watching the NBA since I was a kid when Jordan won 6 championships, and when Kobe and Shaq dominated the sport. I also watched how the Sacramento Kings got robbed, and the time when Tim Duncan won his Championship. I’ve watched the Boston Celtics won the championship vs the Lakers. I watched how the Dallas Mavericks lost to the Heat back in 2006 then came back to Win it back in 2011. Then I’ve watched how the Spurs dominated the Heat and how Steph Curry became the MVP and won the Championship last year. Now this year the Cleveland Cavaliers won it all, and with Lebron James as the Finals MVP.

To be honest. Ever since Lebron James went to the Miami Heat. I started to hate him because of his arrogance and because he self proclaimed that he is “KING JAMES”. Yes he is a dominant in the sport but his arrogance is really massive that’s why many people really hate Lebron, not only that, he is also a master of flopping. Imagine a big guy like him flopping just to get a foul is a poor way of being great. I hated him because of that, that’s why I want the Dallas Mavericks to win and then I was very happy when he lost especially when they lost to the Spurs. He has no excuse and keeps on whining for his mistakes. During last year vs the Golden State Warriors I was kinda hoping that Lebron would prove that he is the greatest player in the world without any help from Kyrie and Kevin because if he won the championship all by himself I would be convinced that he is the greatest player in the world just like he claimed during an interview. But I was disappointed and at the same time happy because I think he deserved that lost so that his arrogance will go straight to his face.ap_649535383326-cropped

Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers won the Championship for the 1st time I thought I was going to be mad because of Lebron’s arrogance. But when Lebron cried, I realized that he gave his heart and soul to the game. I know his arrogant but when you look at his stats he is leading all categories and will make you think that he really does deserve the finals MVP award and that his team deserves to win it all. I’ve gained a lot of respect to him because of his determination and passion. I didn’t see the Lebron that I saw last year when he looks tired all the time and doesn’t have the mood to play. when they were down 3-1 that’s the time when I see the fire burning inside him, The determination to win just like Jordan did. Although he will never be greater than Jordan or Kobe, He will be known as the one of the Best, The Magic Johnson of this era.

I was suppose to be bitter because of the lost of the Warriors but it’s funny, because I’m happy for Lebron to achieve his goal and his promise to Cleveland.
it goes to show that with hardwork, teamwork, and dedication to your craft, you will achieve anything.

Dance for PASSION and not for fame

 

Dancing is an ART not a TOOL for fame.

If your purpose is to gain popularity through dancing then you’ll fail.

Dance for passion and not for fame is not just a statement, but for me it is a principle that I follow. I want to improve my skills not to prove that I’m strong, but I’m doing it because I love to do it. It is a freedom of expression where you can be who you are and nobody can judge you. It has different styles based on the person’s preference, and  different genres to choose from. Having said all that I believe that no matter how good you are, no image-contactsmatter how difficult your choreography is, if you don’t put your heart and soul into your work, then your dance is just like a steak with no flavor in it. It may look good but if you don’t feel the dancer’s heart then the appreciation is gone.

I’ve met a lot of dancers in my time with the community. I’ve learned that the most humble persons in the dance community are the ones who actually “MADE IT” and the ones that doesn’t are the ones who are very arrogant. From that little research that I made, I now realize the concept of ATTITUDE = 100%.  I now fully understand that the arrogant people in the community are just improving their skills but never reached success because of their attitude. The people that desire to improve their skills just to show-off, are the same people who are being “ASSKISSERS” once they’re with the strongest dancers in the community and claims that their already on their level just because of several workshops.

The knowledge that you gain from every workshop is supposed to be shared and not bragged. Every workshop you attend doesn’t just contain the choreography and the foundations of that genre, but it contains much more deeper than that. It will teach you that everything that they taught you is based on their experience and the knowledge that they’ve gained when they’re just starting. Every workshop teaches us that in order for you to become a great dancer you must work hard, take negativity as a challenge, be humble, and most importantly, put your heart into it. In that way you will improve not only your skills but also your personality.

Dance is a delicate balance between perfection and beauty.

The Real Champion

Floyd-Mayweather-vs-Manny-Pacquiao-odds-665x385The whole world is waiting eagerly for this fight. Finally! a clash between the 2 best fighters of this era! Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao VS Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. Everyone is so excited for this fight!! yeah!! BUT what happened? After all the Hype they’ve put on this fight in the end “WE” the “FANS” are very disappointed. So much hype for the so called “Fight of the Century”.

For starters we all know that Manny is an aggressive fighter, and even though he fought with an injured right shoulder, he fought aggressively, and he gave it his all, and he never backed down, and I respect him for that, unlike Floyd who obviously played it safe. He spends his time running around the ring and when Manny attacks him, He immediately hugs him and then runs away again. He uses this strategy to make sure that he will win via Unanimous Decision and maintain his status as an undefeated fighter. Other people might say that he’s smart for doing it, for me in my opinion yes it is a smart thing to do but also it is a cowardly thing to do to win a match.

Sorry Floyd Mayweather Jr. fans but running around the ring and hugging your opponent won’t earn the respect of the people who loves boxing and the love of the fans. People will remember Floyd Mayweather Jr. not as the undefeated champ but as a fighter who is a coward. If you’ll say that it is his game plan then that’s a poor excuse for playing it safe. You call him “the greatest defensive fighter” but a lot of people will call him “the greatest runner”, “the greatest hugger” and “the greatest coward” in boxing history and he will never be considered to be in the hall of fame after claiming to himself that “He is greater than Ali”.

1430639868_floyd+mayweather+vs+manny+pacquiao Clearly he’s very arrogant and very disrespectful especially to his father Floyd Sr. that’s why people think that he is a bad role model unlike Manny. Manny Pacquiao is a very powerful fighter, not only he’s powerful but also he’s a very fast fighter. He is also a very successful man, he’s the only boxer who is an 8 division title holder. He is feared because of his aggressiveness in the ring, you can just look at Floyd’s face when Manny attacks.

Even though Manny have all this success, he remains to be a very humble person, he helps people a lot, he loves God, and he loves his family. He may have mistakes in the past but he did everything to make amends and make up for his mistakes. He is an inspiration to all people, especially to the Filipino people. Manny is a great example of “never giving up in life”. That’s the reason why many people loves Manny Pacquiao because of his kindness, religiousness, and humility. It is heartbreaking to see his loss to Floyd when CLEARLY in the eyes of the people who watched his fight, Manny is the rightful winner. What intrigues me the most is that Floyd didn’t threw a lot of punches and yet in the scorecards he scored much more punches than Manny.

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny PacquiaoBoxing nowadays is not a sport anymore but it is JUST BUSINESS. Sorry to say this but it’s true, there are many fights that are controlled by money, that’s the other reason why fans love Manny because he fights not for the money but because it is his passion, he gives it his all and he makes sure that he makes his fans happy by giving us a spectacular performance.

By the end of the day, Yes Floyd Mayweather is still undefeated, he’s still the Champ, but he will NEVER get the RESPECT and the LOVE that he demands. It’s funny because after the fight, a lot of Americans are booing at Floyd. Yes Floyd you may have all the riches in the world but you will die a lonely rich man and people will remember you as the fighter who loves to run.

Manny Pacquiao will be remembered as a GREAT and RESPECTABLE boxer, and one day he will become a HALL OF FAMER. He shows us that you don’t need to win to be a Champion because for me and for many, Manny Pacquiao is the Real Champion, because A REAL CHAMPION WINS THE RESPECT AND THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE and no title or no money can match that.

CONGRATULATIONS MANNY!!

UC FUEGO

12294724_1709250285972799_6336305063990558141_nYou may think that this is just an ordinary dance organization where people just come and go whenever they want to and dance whenever they feel like it. Well you’re wrong, this is the kind of organization that you should be having because of these extraordinary people with extraordinary talents. According to their President, having them is a great blessing because they show how dedicated they are in what they’re doing and they show great love and respect to us as their mentors unconditionally. He is so proud to be called as their “Daddy Shin” not because of their moves but because of their love and willingness to learn. Even though he’s FAT for a Dance Organization President he’s not ashamed of teaching them because he believes that “EVERYONE CAN DANCE”.

UC FUEGO has a vision for their group and that vision is simple. “TO BE A BETTER PERSON” not just in dancing but in CHARACTER. Their mission is to give confidence to these students and erase their doubts and insecurities from themselves because they know that most of these students are very shy and doesn’t have the initiative to do what they want to do because of fear, and doubt. They want to empower them and make them understand that in order for them to move forward in life they must make their own de12313699_1709499802614514_3737223229612837589_ncisions wisely and close to reality. UC FUEGO want them to be GOOD LEADERS someday that is why they’re teaching them to lead.

They also want to help these students not just on their moves but also in their problems. The President believes that the best way to deal with their problems is to have someone who is willing to listen and who is open minded. These students need someone who they can trust with their whole heart so that they won’t feel lonely. He also made this group to move them away from any vices like drugs, alcohol, and especially BAD PEOPLE. He wants them to realize their potential and he wants them to believe that they CAN DO ANYTHING with hard work, dedication, and passion. He wants them to believe that they should follow their passion and follow excellence in what they want to do, in that way success will follow them.

We have a bond that nobody can break and even though the time comes that our school will disapprove our group, our friendship and our bond will never fade. Nobody can stop us, Nobody can break us, as long as we’re together, we’re unbreakable. – UC FUEGO President

DeathNote

1752834As time goes by here in the Philippines.. crime is done by everybody now a days.. many people here don’t have fear anymore, they don’t care anymore. Most of the crimes here in the Philippines are Rape, Murder, Kidnapping, Homicide, and many more. and the sad thing about this is that many of these crimes are made by Minors. The most popular here is about rape and it’s punish by death penalty. Since we value life here in the Philippines, our law makers removed the death penalty sentence and changed it to life imprisonment because we strongly believe that all people can change. But what’s happening now is that most of this people are not afraid anymore. There comes to a point that rape victims are babies which makes me very angry with this criminals.

Another story is that prisoners in new bilibid prison are having a luxury of staying there because they found out that the drug lords inside the maximum facility are still running there business and living comfortably because of cellphones, internet, flat screen tv, bathtubs, and not to mention money and sex dolls. Which questions the credibility of our law enforcers because they let this people live like Kings inside the prison in exchange for money.

With that said I strongly believe that it is now time to bring back death penalty here in the Philippines. Now’s the time to wake up and take a stand! These people don’t fear the law anymore because they know that MONEY, AND POWER CAN CONTROL THE LAW. Our law makers should change this so that the people of the Philippines can trust our government again. Sad to say these people never learn not until they face death.

Character Makes A Man

hwoarang_194676-1600x900Many of us wonder what our true character is. For me, I will go with Hwoarang from Tekken. He is very good and to consider that he is my favorite character in Tekken because basically he’s like me ( not on a fighting kind of style). Many of the Tekken players hate this character because he is hard to understand and very hard to beat because his movements are very unpredictable and his movements can change during battle just like me. On my experience in my life so far, back then, I’m a very unpredictable person and I can say I’m very complex but I can be reliable. Working with this character was bitter but the results are worth it because I can say that he is a powerful character to use, if you know how to use him. He might be hated by players because he is hard to understand and very complex but he can kick ass very well.

Hwoarang-Fight-Scene-001   Maybe the reason why it was easy for me to understand him is because I’m playing a player that has my personality. In Tekken 5 he was defeated by Devil Jin but that doesn’t stop him from fighting. Right after he recovered he trained so hard and he was really determined to be the best. Like my struggles in life. I was down but I choose to stand up and be better. His attitude on not giving up and be stronger than he ever was. He is a character that I can look up to because like me I’ve been through hardships in my life and I never gave up on life. I strive in doing much better than before and I’m very determined to be successful in life. And when that time comes that I’m successful, I will never stop and keep pushing forward to be much better.

I don’t know why but I feel lazy right now.. I don’t want to go to work.. I need a break… Sometimes people need to relax and chill in order for them to continue working the following day with the same passion and determination to do good.. Oh well back to the assassin =)assassins
