I'm a music lover and I usually update myself with new tracks yet I stay in love with timeless pieces that will never fade with time.

A romantic song is one of my favorites.

I'm sharing my favorite love songs that I find timeless :)

5.) Just a kiss - Lady Antebellum

The lyrics of this song and the melody amuses me.

The video begins with a young woman, Joy, entering a train and discovering an iPad in her backpack. The iPad has a video of her boyfriend with a sign written in French words that mean "Don't forget about me," and also some videos of the couple's travels throughout London, Paris, and Berlin, after which the couple bid each other farewell. A subsequent scene shows Joy's boyfriend finding her sitting on a train seat and they share a kiss. Joy is then seen awoken from sleep as a man named Brady, who looks exactly like the boyfriend in Joy's dream, sits next to her. Brady apologizes for waking her and asks if she minds if he sits next to her. The two make introductions, and Joy mentions her dream. Brady then takes out his iPad case (exactly the same case as the one Joy had in her dream), and smiles at her. Joy smiles back, having experienced this deja vu moment. - Wikipedia

4.) Terrified by Katharine Mcphee ft. Zachary Levi 

Katharine's voice is magical :)

"Terrified" is the second single from American singer Katharine McPhee's second studio album, Unbroken, which was released on January 5, 2010. The song features singer/songwriter Jason Reeves. The song was written by American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi and Reeves. - Wikipedia

3.) Marry me by The Train 

I love this song so much!! the title of the song is the most romantic words ever... I love the harmony, the melody, the lyrics, the video and the band it's a WHOLE PACKAGE

The music video for the song was directed by Lex Halaby. The concept of the video consists of three main outlets - it starts off with separate shots of different couples sitting on a couch and reminiscing about the start of their relationships and the details of how they met. The rest of the video alternates between two different environments, starting with a diner in which a love at first sight moment occurs between Pat Monahan and the waitress of the diner, played by Anna Camp, when their eyes meet. The second alternate environment is the band performing the song, with drummer Scott Underwood on piano and Jimmy Stafford on guitar, with a gray background. The story of the video progresses with the waitress looking at the table where Pat was sitting only to find that he has left, causing her to become regretful of not taking a chance to talk to Pat. The waitress eventually runs out of the diner, hoping that her true love has not gone far, but is disappointed to realize that that's not the case. She then returns to the table where Pat was sitting and finds that he's left his hat. She looks up to see Pat return to the diner, their eyes meet, and he smiles. The final shot of the video shows two steaming cups of coffee on either side of a table in the diner. - Wikipedia

2.) All the love in the world by The Corrs

I love this song personally because I find this a reflection of myself. A girl who believes who has everything, a family that she loves and loves her, friends that will always be there for her, A career that keeps her busy and happy but every time she looks back she misses one thing and that's her heart. She's afraid to love thinking its not gonna work out, Afraid to be rejected and afraid to open up. She needs someone who will prove to her that love is not an illusion and gonna stood up for her weaknesses. She needs someone who really sees her and gonna stay for a lifetime and just for a moment. 

"All the Love in the World" was originally included on their third studio album, "In Blue" (2000).[1] The song was later included on the soundtrack of the 2001 romantic comedy film America's Sweethearts, starring Julia RobertsCatherine Zeta-Jones and John Cusack.[2] It was released as a promotional single to the film, with a remix version being available in its soundtrack[2] and in a promotional single (which includes the album version, as well),[3] and with a music video with scenes of the film being released to further promote it.[4]
"All the Love in the World" was written by The Corrs (AndreaCarolineSharon and Jim), while Robert John "Mutt" Lange co-wrote and produced the song. - Wikipedia

1.) I knew I loved you before I met you by Savage Garden

This is my ultimate favorite romantic song.. This song depicts a love that is meant to be. Falling in love with someone whose characteristics were embedded in your mind right before you met him. When a time comes you finally say the words " He is the one ".

The music video was filmed by director Kevin Bray in August, 1999 on a New York City Subway set that had previously been used on the sitcom Seinfeld.[1] It features Hayes playing out a romantic plot on a subway train, with a female passenger (played by American actress Kirsten Dunst) as the object of his affections. At one point, the train comes to a stop due to a power outage; red emergency lighting comes on and everyone in the carriage joins hands. Hayes, who is sitting opposite his aforementioned love interest, extends his hand to her. As they touch, the video cuts to a montage of the couple walking through a park, bathed in sunlight, laughing and holding hands. The video then cuts back to the carriage as the power comes back on and the train pulls into the station. Hayes and the woman exit with the other passengers, and share a fleeting glance before going their separate ways. Shots of the band performing alone on the subway platform and in the carriage are interspersed throughout the video. - Wikipedia

Last August 17 and 18 we had our Year end party at The Ranch Resort in Toledo City, Cebu. I love how it feels to be connected back to nature. I love the scenery it's so picturesque. They have a pool, a farm and zipline, too bad wasn't able to try their zipline.

The ranch resort is a best place to have photoshoots or pre nuptial shoots. I gotta go back there :)

Thank you Accenture Dot Com for this year end party and next party to watch for is the Accenture PCS Year end Party wohooooo!!!!

They are just strict if its already 12 a.m. you are no longer allowed to stay near the pool or roam around the resort. You have to stay in your respective rooms. Weird right? hehehe.. Only in THE RANCH

I used the word awesome because I got good feedbacks on my first ever video. I thought my video will be a disaster and just another plain youtube birthday dedication video but whenever people tell me "Oh I see so much effort on your video" then it means they can tell I put a lot of time, dedication and creativity. I really worked hard on my first video mainly because the person I was dedicating it was a hard-to-please kind of guy, We love to take photos together and when I let to see him my photos before he was honest enough to tell me the areas I have to work on and sometimes his words challenged me to do it better and as time flies by and I got to learn more photography techniques and spent more time learning the craft his words of appreciation on my photos were already cheering me up and inspiring me to shoot more.

I never tried editing a video before, the reasons are first I don't have an editor as great as the videographers are using in creating fabulous videos. second my only editor is Imovie and honestly I am uneducated to use it, at first look on Imovie I was already confused how to run the thing. third I don't have a project to start with.

So I gave video making a try. I searched in Youtube on how to operate the only editor I have, I also experimented the editor and lucky enough it was easy as A-B-C and the process of creating videos was fun and I'm loving every single of it. I worked on my videos for 3 days every after work and just polishing every details.

To summarize everything the things I learn in creating videos are

1.) Gather all videos you need
2.) make sure to capture videos that create memories
3.) videos should show the subject's personality
4.) Pick the right song for the video make a research
5.) Have a master plan, before everything you should already have a vision on what the output will be.

Like photography I consider videography an art that creates lifetime memories in motion

Here's my first youtube video

I love surprising my friends on their birthdays. If time and availability permits I wish I could do it to all of them but sadly I am quite busy lately yet I never missed greeting a close friend on their birthday. I make it sure to save it on my phone and write it down on my planner in case my phone will be stolen. I remember when I was in college and had limited financial resources I organized surprises to my girlfriends on their birthday and buy small cakes for them. There was even an instance we asked permission from our teacher to spare a little time on his class so we can throw a little surprise on our friend and he gave us a go signal and even participated on our surprise. 2 years after that surprise a teacher asked us to share to the class something that you will never forget in your life? and my friend shared to the class the surprise we gave her on our birthday and I was happy that she treasured that day. There was another surprise I organized on my friend's birthday that was almost ruined by the rain, It was June and I was out with my another friend looking for a chocolate cake and we didn't bring umbrellas that afternoon and we had a hard time looking for taxis and I ended up crying for the misfortune we encountered but in the end we still surprised my friend with our uniforms super wet.

A friend asked me these questions :

why do I love surprising friends on their birthday?

First because I grew up doing that. When I was in Highschool birthdays were really a big thing. Whenever someone will celebrate her birthday our teacher will always makes sure that there will be a little classroom celebration. I spent my highschool in an all girls school so it was a norm to give letters, balloons, hugs and kisses to the celebrant and when I reached college I had all the luxury of time organizing surprises because my time was not divided by friends and a boyfriend it was all for my friends LUCKY THEM HAHAHA...

Is it my custom to greet my friends at 12 midnight on their birthday?

Yes. Until now my bestfriend with different time zone makes sure to greet me at12 midnight (GMT+8) on my birthday. There was even a time that all my girlfriends will have a game on who can greet first on the celebrant but if it's before 12 a.m. you are disqualified. So girly and immature doings right?? hehehe... You can't blame me I grew up doing that but one thing I will never forget was the time I drunk too much alcohol and wasn't able to greet my friend at 12 midnight and greeted her the next morning and she really reacted so much like I missed her birthday and to think I still greeted her on her birthday but not at 12 midnight so I said sorry and from that time on I never missed any birthday without greeting at 12 midnight.

What do I usually give on birthdays?

I give cakes. Its the sweetest thing ever on a birthday and a little message.

What do I get on surprising my friends?

I don't get anything but I gain friendship and loyalty. A simple greeting will make their day so why not greet? It doesn't cost anything yet it means so much to someone.

Do they surprise you in return on your birthday?

Every birthday I don't expect a surprise because I might be surprised that there's no surprise HAHAHA but yes my friends surprise me and never fails to greet me on my birthday.

Leslie's 23rd birthday. I love her so much that on her day I went out looking for a chocolate cake and a letter for her birthday. She inspires me to love life.

 Salie's 23rd birthday.
I cut 23 papers and handed out to 23 of Salie's close friends and let them wrote down what they like about Salie and Their wish for her. Secretly we asked her friend from Manila to answer questions about what he likes about Salie and it was all fun!!! and our friend also suggested to print the man's face and do a mascot.

And for my 23rd birthday my friends gave me 23 messages and 23 cupcakes.
