Chinkee Tan’s “The Power of Change”


How we embrace ‘change’ makes a the difference. Change is inevitable; it is also powerful that it can make or break you. But, you have the power to deal and adapt with change the right way. Instead of facing change with fear, welcome it as an opportunity to expand yourself, and to move from being stagnant to vibrant.

Join The POWER OF CHANGE by Chinkee Tan. He will walk with you and help you understand the process of change. He will also show you that there is so much power in change that if you’ll learn to embrace it, you will progress, find new perspective, and experience breakthroughs-your life will never be the same again.

Get inspired, renewed, and empowered as you unfold the exciting yet amazing process of CHANGE! Sign up today for The Power of Change on January 31, 2015, 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM at Holiday Inn and Suites, Ayala Center, Makati City.

#CJonTrial: My prediction (tags: politics)

I'm used to reading predictions before an Apple product — say, a new iPhone or iPad — comes out. And it's always fun. 

So, after watching this impeachment trial for 5 months and now coming to end, here's my fearless forecast of how individual senators will vote tomorrow. I will update this post later to reflect the exact box store. :D

Sen. Edgardo Angara – CONVICT
Sen. Joker Arroyo- ACQUIT
Sen. Alan Peter – CONVICT 
Sen. Pia Cayetano- CONVICT
Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago – ACQUIT
Sen. Franklin Drilon – CONVICT
Sen. Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada – CONVICT
Sen. Francis Escudero – CONVICT
Sen. Teofisto Guingona III – CONVICT
Sen. Gregorio Honasan II – CONVICT
Sen. Panfilo Lacson – CONVICT
Sen. Manuel Lapid – CONVICT
Sen. Loren Legarda – ACQUIT
Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. – ACQUIT
Sen. Sergio Osmeña III – CONVINCT
Sen. Francis Pangilinan – CONVICT
Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III – CONVICT
Sen. Ralph Recto – CONVICT
Sen. Ramon Revilla Jr. – ACQUIT
Sen. Vicente Sotto III – CONVICT
Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV – CONVICT
Sen. Manuel Villar – ACQUIT
Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile – CONVICT

My prediction – 17/6.

Interesting to note, though, that this really could go either way. Sen. JPE could go either way. Which means, his other allies not tagged here to acquit may follow (assuming they already know how he will vote — he will send his vote last).

This is interesting. Let us see how this goes tomorrow.

BeeGees is for my dad as Eraserheads is for me

Sad to hear the news today that Robin Gibb, one third of the popular BeeGees 70's group passed away today. I'm a fan of their music. I'm not that old, but at least I know my dad loves this group the way I loved Eraserheads. However, you'll know the greatness of one's music if they would cross over several generations. It crossed over mine. Their music has been 'cloned', rearranged, adopted by several present time musicians. What makes a good music is simple — the poetic lyrics and dynamic melody, both present in the BeeGees.

In late 2004, I had a date with my dad. I brought him to Robin Gibb's concert at the Araneta Coliseum. I saw how my dad enjoyed that night. If there was already Twitter or Facebook back then, I might have tweeted, "Papa is clapping like crazy! :D" (I wish Johann will bring me to an Eraserheads reunion concert 25 years from now :D )

So long, Robin.
