I hope my readers will help disseminate the advocacy of this blog by reposting this in their sites so that the Franciscan Quartet may raise the necessary funds to finance their trip to Hollywood, California, USA to compete in the WCOPA worldwide singing contest. The boys are our official representatives to that prestigious singing contest. Your help in any form, either through dissemination of this information or financial help to their parents, will be highly appreciated. Thank you so much. God bless us all always

oh my! am i counting it right? this is my 100th post! yay to that! and my blogaversary is near! 0_0
err... what should i do now? :)
a. go back to bed and get some more sleep?
b. treat an orphan to lunch?
c. visit a salon and get a nice soothing massage?
d. write and write and write more til i reach another hundredth?
e. any creative suggestion?
aaaaw! how time flies... i was MIA for weeks, i guess... that's due to our busy sched with sponsor hunting for the Quartet's WCOPA Hollywood trip. one of my friends suggested that i should use the power of the internet and blogging to help ourselves get what we need. which i really don't think would work since most of my readers are from other countries. but she said, it wouldn't hurt if i'd try. maybe, somewhere or somehow, a fellow Filipino blogger or reader will help us get the help we need. please help us by spreading the word through your blogs, Facebook Walls, or whatever form and rest assured that everything will be appreciated. i'm kinda losing hope... until now everything is ZERO! ugh! but i'll keep holding on for my ADJ1, it's his dream and i'm trying to help him make it true (oh, what mothers would do!)... as they say, believe and all things are possible... ;)
well, here's an old video of the Franciscan Quartet singing "When you believe" by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. (i love listening to this! it keeps me up somehow :))
