Toycon and Cosplay @Dell

Cartoons 2 Comments »

As part of Dell’s Winnning Culture, we had our Toycon and Cosplay contest last Wednesday, September 3. Miss Rina, our trainer, encourages us to participate in the said event. One of my batch mates, volunteered to dress up as Vincent of Ghostfighter. I remember my high school days, when my classmates then were fascinated with Dragon Ball Z anime. There was one song in Dragon Ballz that I won’t remember. Well, actually it is just a line from the song. Here it goes:

“Aim high reach for the sky now, let love teach you the way how. This would make your dreams come true. This world is filled with love. This world is filled with love…” I hope my lyrics is correct. :)

I don’t even know the song title, it’s just that the very short line from the song gives a very encouraging meaning. :)

There were lots of participants in the Cosplay. Some of which I knew but most, I don’t. There was Dell employees who dressed up as Doraemon, Queen Amidala of Star Wars, Sailor Moon, hmmm, well, those are the ones I can recall that I knew.

There was a brief slideshow of the different anime, hero series and movies we have grown with, before the cosplay participants paraded.

When I was young, I was a fan of different hero series, too. I have grown up watching Shaider, Bioman (I was Yellow Four! :) ), Mask Rider Black, Ultraman and Magma Man (all those that have “man”). Of course, how can I forget, my all time favorite “Voltes V”.

I was really happy when, I have been Sir Peejay’t toy collection. He has a Voltes V holding the Laser Sword up! :)

Well, our own Vincent didn’t make it to the top but we all enjoy this event. :)

At the Beginning

Cartoons, History, lyric sheet 1 Comment »

Another song that Dwight wanted me to sing for them is At The Beginning.  This one, is the theme song of the movie Anastasia. I believe it was not produced by Disney. The story is about a Russian princess. It was based on a true story but there are scenes that are made out of fiction. The princess name is Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia. She was the daughter of Russia’s last czar, Nicholas II.

Anastasia

Anastasia

In 1918, her whole family with some faithful servants were murdered. But there are rumors that Anastasia survived that night. And that she was taken cared off by one of the Bolshevik police. Several woman have falsely acclaimed that they are the Grand Duchess Anastasia. The most popular of them all was Anna Anderson. I have read a lot of articles about Anna Anderson and her claims being Anastasia. There are some incidents that you would really believe her. But DNA results said that Anna Anderson has no relation at all to the royal family. That the remains of the four daughters of the Nicholas II, including his wife and only son, Alexi have been recovered and now been accounted for. That no one escaped that dreadful night.

I always get goosebumps every time I talk about them. Well, I know that a lot of you are familiar with this song. I like this song from the cartoon movie Anastasia. But, I like Journey to the Past more. :)

At the Beginning

We were strangers starting out on our journey
Never dreaming what we’d have to go through
Now here we are and I’m suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected what you did to my heart
When I lost hope you were there to remind me
This is the start

(chorus)
And Life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I want to keep flowing
Life is a road now and forever
A Wonderful journey

I’ll be there when the world stops turning
I’ll be there whenthe storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

(chorus)

I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
I know that my dream will live on
I’ve been waiting so long
Nothing’s gonna tear us apart

(chorus)

In the end I wanna be standing at the beginning with you

Anastasia the Movie

Ciao! :)

If I Never Knew You

Cartoons, lyric sheet 1 Comment »

My dear friend Dwight (who is now in Australia) is getting married in December this year. It’s been 6 years since we last see each other, but he never forgets me. :) Well, he said that he’s been looking around in for me in Friendster and finally last year he found me. Last January (if I am not mistaken), he said that he will be getting married and he wanted me to sing in his wedding.  Last week, he sent me a message through Friendster and told me the songs he wanted me to sing. He requested 3 songs. I forgot the title of the other song but one of the songs he requested for me to sing is  If I Never Knew You (by Jon Secada and Shanice). It was actually the theme song of Disney Movie “Pocahontas.”

I listened to the song last night as I clean my daughter’s mini-aquarium. It is a very sweet song, and Shanice hits the high tones very good! :) I still have couple of months to study the song and hopefully I’ll be able to sing it well. :)

If I Never Knew You

-Smith-
If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be

And if I never held you
I would never have a clue
How at last I’d find in you
The missing part of me

In this world so full of fear
Full of rage and lies
I can see the truth so clear
In your eyes
So dry your eyes

And I’m so grateful to you
I’d have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

-Pocahontas-
I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we made the whole world bright

I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong
All they’d leave us where these whispers in the night
But still my heart is singing
We were right

-Pocahontas- (Smith)
If I never knew you (There’s no moment I regret)
If I never knew this love (Since the moment that we met)
I would have no inkling of (If our time has gone too fast)
How precious life can be (I’ve lived at last…)

-Smith-
And I’m so grateful to you
I’d have lived my whole life through
Empty as the sky

-Pocahontas-
Never knowing why

-Both-
Lost forever
If I never knew you

Ciao! :)

A DREAM IS A WISH YOUR HEART MAKES

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true

[clock:] dong
[Cinderella:] Oh that clock
[c:] dong
[Cinderella:] oh, kill joy
[c:] dong
[Cinderella:] I hear you
Come on, Get up you say
[c:] dong
[Cinderella:] time to start another day
[c:]dong
[Cinderella:] even he orders me around
[c:]dong
[Cinderella:] well, there’s one thing
they cant order me to stop dreaming
and maybe someday….

[singing:]The dreams that i wish will come true

No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true

Beauty and the Beast

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends
Unexpectedly

Just a little change
Small to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will rise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun (certain as the sun)
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast

Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast

Part of that World

PART OF THAT WORLD

Look at this stuff
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has ev’rything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Lookin’ around here you’d think
(Sure) she’s got everything

I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty
I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore
(You want thingamabobs?
I got twenty)
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more

I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see
Wanna see ‘em dancin’
Walkin’ around on those
(Whad’ya call ‘em?) oh – feet
Flippin’ your fins you don’t get too far
Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’
Strollin’ along down a
(What’s that word again?) street

Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin’ free
Wish I could be
Part of that world

What would I give
If I could live
Outta these waters?
What would I pay
To spend a day
Warm on the sand?
Betcha on land
They understand
Bet they don’t reprimand their daughters
Bright young women
Sick o’ swimmin’
Ready to stand

And ready to know what the people know
Ask ‘em my questions
And get some answers
What’s a fire and why does it
(What’s the word?) burn?

When’s it my turn?
Wouldn’t I love
Love to explore that shore above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world

A Whole New World

(Aladdin:) I can show you the world

(Aladdin:)I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways, and under
On a magic carpet ride

A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming

Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

The Princess in Me

Cartoons, Little Antoinette 6 Comments »

My sister Pauline and I went to Star Mall last week. When we were there, we saw a book shop called “Book Sale”. By its name, you would really have an idea that the books and magazines that they sell are like second hand or used already. Though, there are some brand new stuff being offered as well. Being a book lover myself, I told my sister that we drop by it. I went directly to the Children’s book. I love buying books for Antoinette. She owns a Grolier Encyclopedia and the 24-volume series is called “I Wonder Why?” Then, I got her an ABC and Counting 123 books. I realized that my little princess doesn’t own any fairy tale book yet.

Though, I had been collecting CDs of Disney classic Fairy Tale movies, I believe, she still deserved to have one. So, when we’re at Book Sale, I looked for a Fairy Tale book. I want a book about the classic princesses, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Aurora and Snow White. I want its pages to be “hard bound” so that Nonet can go through the pages of it without me worrying about it being torn apart. As you see, Nonet is only 2 years old.

I found fairy tale books but it’s not the one I’m looking for. I mean, I’m not satisfied with it. Then my sister found this pink Fairy Tale book entitled Musical Magical Treasury Disney Princess. I fell in love with the book. It’s the one I’m looking for, not to mention that it only cost PhP 120.00 :)

The book has all the Disney Princesses.

Here’s Ariel of The Little Mermaid.

This one is Aurora of Sleeping Beauty.

 

 

This is Belle From Beauty and the Beast.

 

 

Princess Snow White.

 

 

This is Cinderella.

 

 

Last but not the least, Princess Jasmine.

 

When I was younger, I had dreamt of being a princess. Oh how I love reading Princess stories. I know that every girl is a princess in her own ways. I used to be the princess of our family up until my two younger sisters came. Well, I believe that in my parents hearts we are all princesses.

 

Now, our family has a new princess. A princess that we love so much!

Candy, Candy!

Cartoons 8 Comments »

Lately I have been blogging about that Jucelino clairvoyant and its giving me so much stress. Today I’d like to post about Marikina Valley Fault Line but I decided to write about Candy Candy instead. I need to refresh my self amidst all these things..

“She’s a girl, pretty girl.. with ribbons on her hair..” Does this lyrics, rings a bell? Sing her name Candy! Yes it’s Candy, Candy!”

 

I remember watching Candy when I was younger. She was a sweet and very cheerful girl. If I’m not mistaken, it was in 1975 when this was first aired. My mom and godmother used to watch her as well during their teen days. And, that’s how I learned aboout Candy. Candy grew up in an orphanage. When she was a baby, the sisters of “Pony’s Home” found her at its doorstep. She was named Candy from a doll she had in her basket, which has a name “Candy” on it. Her lastname, White, was from the snowstorm she was rescued from. Many people like her or love her because of her kind personality. She met a handsome mysterious boy on a hill behind her home. This “prince on the hill” becomes an important person in her life. She lived in the orphanage until she is adopted by a very influential big clan. Candy is a very good friend of the teenagers Annie, Archie, Al(Stear in Manga, I believe his real name is Alistair) and Anthony… and so started Candy’s journey’s in life.. I found a site wherein the author features Candy mango which can be downloaded.

Here is Candy Candy’s Series in TV, Filipino Opening Song..

She’s a girl, pretty girl
With ribbons in her hair
She’s a girl with lots & lots
& lots of fun and friends to share

She likes to climb up all high places
And find her way through dark staircases
She’ll paint your world in bright colours
Her name is Candy…

*Whenever clouds make her day look gray
& everyone’s hiding from the rain
She tells herself “There’s still another day,
Surely tomorrow we can play…”

**She’s a girl, she’s a girl
They call her Candy
Don’t ever leave me, don’t run away please
Candy Candy…

She’s a girl, funny girl
With freckles on her nose
She’s a girl whose smile beguiles you while
You’re laughing at her jokes

She loves the prairies and rides he ponies
She loves the sleigh bells when they come ringing
She likes to humm when birds are singing
Her name is Candy

*Whenever people tell her friends she’s bad
& everyone’s saying that she’s wrong
She tells herself “Cheer up, just smile…
Surely tomorrow I’ll be strong…”

**Repeat

Here’s the ending song for the Philippine TV series of Candy Candy..

After you leave I’ll start to cry
I know I’ll miss your love
I’ll never know the reason why
The reason why you must go

Then the wind comes and brings your voice
Like a bird in twilight song
Bringing night to the stars
As the heavens spell your name

All of my songs will comfort you
My love will make you strong
And tomorrow
We’ll sing a song
Share a song
That we are one

Maybe (Candy)
Maybe (Candy)
You’ll be mine
Tomorrow…

Got some of her pictures here:

 

Isn’t she lovely and very charming? How I miss watching Candy Candy. I think Judy Abott and Georgie, (if you have seen or heard about those anime), have patterned their stories to Candy Candy.

Is there someone there who can tell where I can download the manga for Candy, Candy?
Please… =)
