Touringkitty Travels: Dating, European-style

We sang, we traveled, we ate. This is how we conquered Europe for the first time as husband and wife. We got to do it for almost a month. And even if we were traveling with a group, we cannot miss the chance to go out on a just-us date. So, on that one free […]

Schatzinfinity: Ten years of marriage

#blessed is never cliche If I were to sum up the past ten years of being married to the love of my life, only one word comes to mind: GRATEFUL. That my husband and I are stronger together, and we’ve proven it to each other and to other people many times already. That we have […]

#KoristaAko: Efraime Mallari

  After a yet another long hiatus, I am back to my blogging mojo! And what better way for a comeback is to post a new entry in my passion project, #KoristaAko. Our korista for this edition is quite an interesting ball of musical energy, and I got to meet him for the first time […]

#KoristaAko: Acapellago

Singing in harmony is second nature to Filipinos. Admittedly, when a melody is heard, we (secretly) hum a second voice into it. And with the advent of a cappella singing in movies and TV (think Glee and Pitch Perfect), and competitions like Akapela Open, more Filipinos are getting hooked in a cappella music. Which positively translates to […]

#KoristaAko: De Pano Sisters

Time flies when you’re having fun, indeed. First quarter of the year is ending, and since Holy Week came in a little early, March became a busy month for most koristas, especially those in the church ministry. We got to thank our church musicians for making our Holy Week more solemn, reflective, and meaningful with […]

12 months in 12 photos

Happy New Year 28 days late! You probably noticed my slight hiatus on the blog. But I’ve been rather active on Instagram (follow me @touringkitty!) so you might have known the reason/s. One word: BUSY! But very happy. 2015 was definitely a great year. If there is a word to describe it, it would be “miracle,” just […]

Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival: A tribute and a legacy

Time flew, fast. It has been two years since the first ever international choral competition took place at the CUltural Center of the Philippines. And I am proud to have been part of it. Now, two years after, the second competition happens right on the month when the honoree commemorates her birth and passing on. […]

The SOJCC turns nine!

Nine years. Wow. I am super happy to have served at the Shrine of Jesus all these nine years, along with these super kids! We still have three pioneer members who started in 2006. Many have come and gone, but the group remained steadfast in our duty as church servants. We thank everyone who have […]

#KoristaAko: Jon Philippe Go

Another project came into mind last month: To feature chorister profiles on the blog, with the goal of inspiring and encouraging aspiring singers and choristers. And so, #KoristaAko is born! In photo is my now Youth Choir, the Shrine of Jesus Children and Youth Choir, during the Madz et al performance last year. There’s just too […]

#ThrowbackThursday: Be part of a TV Station ID = CHECK!

Singing with a world-renowned choral group sure had its perks. One of which is being seen on TV! So, every bit of TV exposure, we treasure it. And this is definitely one for the books, immortalized through Youtube. As we await for the new Station ID of this TV channel, which is coming out tonight, […]
