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: Jacqui Jimenez

Hello, 2017! Our Korista profiles were in absentia because of the busy latter half of 2016 that was. But thank you to the 2,300+ koristas who joined the Facebook Group (do join us!) and the 130+ Facebook Page likers (like like like!). Now, we introduce another certified korista now based in the US. Plus, she […]

#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 […]

#KoristaAko: Jhoan Ayos

Happy (Chinese) New Year! I know, I had backlogs for #KoristaAko. The last quarter of the year had always been busy, busy busy! But it was very musical, and I hope yours was, too. Now, on with my latest post! Last October, my husband and I (being part of the Philippine Choral Directors Association) were invited to attend […]

#KoristaAko: Jimmy Chung

Welcome to another #KoristaAko post. Just to get things more fun, I have an exciting raffle at the end of this post, so read on. I still can’t figure out how adult colouring books came into mainstream here in our country. It was all of a sudden and your local bookstore shelves are filled with books […]

#KoristaAko: Mcoy Fundales

Welcome to another edition of #KoristaAko! This is a special edition, because we have a real star from a different side of the music spectrum–rock music. Yes, friends, you’ve read it right. No less than Mcoy Fundales of the Pinoy Ako/PBB/Orange and Lemons/Kenyo fame started as a korista. And just recently, he revisited his choral singing experience on […]

#KoristaAko: Jennifer Lopez Gana

  Before we close Women’s Month, I give you our second serving of #KoristaAko, a superwo-mom herself and a certified Korista. Let’s all meet another Jenny from the block, Jennifer Lopez-Gana! Jennifer is a government employee of the Home Development Mutual Fund, more popularly known as the Pag-ibig Fund. They have their own choral group, the […]

#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 […]
