The Morning Rush

Do you listen to The Morning Rush? If not, well you're missing a lot.

The Morning Rush - a show/segment in a radio station in the Philippines (RX 93.1), hosted by Chico Garcia and Delamar. The show is on air on weekdays 6:00-10:00 AM and every last Saturday of the month 6:00-9:00 AM.

What's so special about their show? The Top Ten. The DJs will pick a topic for the day and announce it at the start of the show. The topics can be serious at times, but most of the time they are funny. Sample Top Ten topics:

  • Taray Quotes
  • Quotes that have inspired you
  • Things to say if an ugly person asks, "Well, how do I look?"
Lloyd and I would usually listen to it on our way to work when we were still working in in the Philippines. I'd usually get to work before 8:30am, while the show is still on. So I'd turn on my cellphone's FM radio and listen to it while at work (that time The Morning Rush was until 9am only).

Now that I'm so far away, I still listen to them! Whenever I wake up early (and not sleep again after Lloyd leaves), I'd listen to RX 93.1's live streaming thru their website or thru e-Radio Portal. Otherwise, I'd download (podcast or download the MP3) that day's show from Blue Ritz's blog Chico and Delamar's Top 10.

If you'd rather not listen to the whole show and just want to read snippets of the Top 10, you can check out Chico's blog. He posts entries from previous months (yeah... months old. tsk tsk...).

Here's one of my favorite Top 10 - The Top Ten “Swallow Me Whole” Moments. Favorite entry: #10 by Niknokniknoknik. Still makes me laugh every time I read (or listen to) it!

Araw ng Dilaw

On August 21, 2009,
Make Ninoy and Cory’s spirit of sacrifice live within you.
Sa Araw ng Dilaw,
Wear something yellow.
Light a yellow candle
to remember Ninoy and Cory’s love for the Filipino.

And if you’re on the road that day
Keep the flame of Ninoy and Cory burning.
Along with a thousand other cars, switch on your hazard lights from 6pm to 7pm and spread the country’s Yellow Spark far and wide.


A Little Survey

I recently chanced upon a survey on the Internet and it really caught my attention. What do you get for answering this simple survey? A chance to win a movie voucher!

The survey is called the Euro RSCG Asia-Pacific Quarterly Financial Services Survey.

So what’s up with this survey? Given the fact that currently there are a number of major challenges experienced by consumer banks because of the current economic climate, its purpose is to provide insight and understanding of Singaporean consumers’ attitudes and perceptions of the major players as they wrestle with brand and communications strategies.

This survey will only take a few minutes to complete. And of course, all responses will be strictly confidential and no personal information will be published with the findings.

In view of the fact that we will give a short period of our time to answer the survey, all those who complete it will be entered into a draw to win a movie voucher than can be used in any Golden Village cinemas in Singapore.

So if you are in Singapore, better do it before the your chance runs out. Be part of the lucky draw until 19th August.

What's with the title (& this entry)? Nothing... Just want to write something today.
I just feel sad today, and feel so tired.
Whenever I'm tired, I'm grumpy, and at times I just want to cry. I know... weird. But that's me...

Ok, here's a little something though. Now that I've written what I'm feeling now (the tired-want-to-cry feeling), I feel a bit better. :D
Thanks blog!

Touch a blogger: Tie a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino!

Touch a blogger: Tie a yellow ribbon for Cory Aquino!

I am a Filipino and I am proud to say so. It is people like Former President Cory Aquino that makes me more proud to be a Filipino. She fought for our country's freedom, liberty and democracy.

As I am writing this entry, I am watching Former President Cory Aquino's funeral on TV.

Goodbye Tita Cory. The Philippines will surely miss you.
