Cebu Chamber Singers

Last October, the Cebu Chamber Singers regaled us with beautiful music in a world-class performance. Singing is one talent I wish I had, but that didn't hinder me from appreciating music, even the classical ones. Having been introduced to classical music at the age of three, I have grown to love this genre and all other genre not belonging to contemporary music. Imagine my excitement and delight when we got invited to listen to the Cebu Chamber Singers.

"The Cebu Chamber Singers (CCS) is a dynamic local group composed of music enthusiasts from different parish, school and community choirs. Its members therefore have experience in choral music. As chamber singers, the choir aims to make Cebu known for its choral music.

CCS was founded on July 10, 2006 by Mr. Dennis Gregory A. Sugarol, a multi-awarded musician who has extensively performed and conducted choral groups here and abroad. Its co-founder, Mr. Rey Roa, is a US-based musician is also known for the choral groups he trained and conducted while in Cebu.

Immediately after its organization, the choir underwent workshops to hone their basic skills in vocalization, breathing techniques, phrasing, and music dynamics, among other things. The initial activities were so encouraging that, energized by the workshops; the group eagerly scheduled regular rehearsals twice a week.

The 35-member group of professionals and students (doctors, lawyers, teachers, et al) sings regularly at the Pedro Calungsod Shrine, Cebu City. It is committed to promote religious, folk, and popular music to the community."

I was able to capture on video only two songs from their repertoire. I am posting the first one as the second is still being uploaded.

Just recently, the Cebu Chamber Singers bagged the top prize in Busan International Choral Festival held in Korea. Said singing competition was participated in by 900 singers, coming from different parts of the world. Kudos to the CCS team! You made Cebu proud again. 

By the way, here's what I wore to the concert:

OUTFIT: Impulse

Who is guilty of impulse buying?


Not a very good habit, I must say (though, it's really not that bad. Teehee).
I am not the type who will go around all stores, comparing notes or prices at that,
then go back to the store where you initially fell in love with an item.


That's my motto. LOL.
Yes, I guess I can say I am an impulsive buyer.
I buy stuffs that I find cute, even if I have no decent use for it.

Like this dress, for example.

It has been with me for three years ago and I used it only now.

I bought it because of its sexy back (even if my back is far from sexy!)

But I will challenge myself from now on.
I will be more prudent on my purchases.

Can I do it?

Major Girl Crush

One of the things I love about blogging is the inspiration  I get from other bloggers across the world. Blogging is a unique avenue to share ideas and information about anything under the sun. I am most attracted to fashion, lifestyle and travel blogs. 

Among the top international fashion bloggers, I am seriously having a girl crush on Andy Torres of Style Scrapbook. Why? She doesn't try to hard to be fashionable. I personally love her style, simple yet practical. And she dresses her age. She openly admits that on ordinary days, she prefers not to wear make-up.

Do check out this episode on Monki Television where she showed a part of her walk-in closet.

Simone dress || SEPA earrings || Boracay market necklace and woven floppy hat

My good friend, Francis, aptly called my necklace Amaya. Yes, the teleserye (TV series) in GMA. I haven't seen the show, but I have a pretty good idea on what the plot is all about. Thanks to a special reenactment. Lol.

This, by the way, is my very first maxi dress. I consciously stayed away from maxis as I felt it was quite a risky outfit considering my height. What drove me to buy this was the colors. Simply irresistible! I also loved the way the dress flows. The beach just made the whole get up perfect.

Supersale Bazaar

I was at the right place and at the right time. It seems that the stars have aligned. Teehee.

I shall stop at the word SALE. No further explanations needed.
