PLDT myDSL’s Internet to Sawa TRANSFORMS my Internet Experience from So-so to Awesome!

PLDT myDSL’s Internet to Sawa TRANSFORMS my Internet experience from So-so to Awesome!

Yes, that is so true! Part of my life is online, I must say. Should I say an e-life! Before, I was contented just surfing the net. But when I became a blogger, my time being online extends from ordinary to extraordinary. I became interested of sharing my experiences through text and photos on my blog and other social networking sites like facebook and twitter.

Through PLDT myDSL Internet to Sawa, I want to shift from using a broadband stick to PLDT my DSL Internet to SAWA so I can surf more, download more, blog more with no limits, without even thinking of my prepaid credits to run out.

Another reason why I like PLDT myDSL Internet to Sawa is that I can now download large e-file of travel tips and guides with no buffer, hangs, or connection error. These kind of files really help me a lot especially when I'm in search of places to visit and reading photoblogs with large picture size. These kind of blogs requires a fast connection to load the photos and pages quickly.

I also love watching videos in youtube, and to be able to do that is to have a fast and reliable internet connection, who wouldnt want a 5MBPS connection? Unlike any other service provider that disappoints you when in the middle of watching a funny clip, the video will suddenly stop because it buffers. Isn't that a momentum killer?

Korea's Got Talent "Sung-bong Choi"

"I dont speak Korean and certainly not a fan of this type of music. But why there's tear in my eyes when he started singing???"

That is the youtube's video comment of jiggaman6 in the performance of Sung-bong Choi, a 22 year old contestant in Korea's Got Talent.

Video by gmldnjsroEl

I felt the same after watching the whole video. Based on his interview before his performance, one of the judges asked him why he left the family section in his application form blank? He then replied that he was left in an orphanage at the age of three and then at the age of five he ran away from the orphanage after being beaten off and bullied. At that young age, he survived by selling gums and energy drinks on the street. He did that for ten years according to Choi. He lives with no one beside him since he was five. He learn to sleep on the street and public toilet. He described those days in his life as a "dayfly". he wasnt able to go to school and just took GED or General Educational Development to cover up for his elementary and middle school degrees and high school was the first school he have been to.

He said that he like singing because it was the first thing he liked after living that dayfly - like life. He also humbly said that he is not a good singer but he just like it.

The moment he started opening his lips, I had goosebumps and tears started dwelling into my eyes as he started singing Nella Fantasia, ("In My Fantasy") is an Italian song based on the theme "Gabriel's Oboe" from the film The Mission in 1986 (Wikipedia).

The audience and even the judges gave him a round of applause. Some even cried and cant believed that such great performance came from a boy who struggles a lot at a very young age. After the performance and when the judges are about to give their comments, Song Yoona said "I just want to give you a hug". Another judge, Park Kolleen ask him why he wants to sing, Choi said that he went through so many bad things in his life, he even experienced being sold to somewhere and one day while selling gums in a night club, he saw a vocalist on the stage and he became so fascinated while the singer was singing so sincerely. Since then, he started singing.
Park Kolleen offered him a voice lesson after hearing that Choi just listened and practiced by himself and had not taken any lesson. No matter what happened to him in the competition, he can still consider himself lucky because a famous musical director in Korea and Rain's music teacher is offering him a vocal training.

"Indeed, A man with a great passion on what he is doing will go far." Bring it on Choi Sung-bong. You did a great job! Good luck!

Watch Korea's Got Talent Season 1 at tvN Asia. The three judges are Park Kolleen,
Jang Jin and Song Yoona.

Nella Fantasia

Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo giusto,
Lì tutti vivono in pace e in onestà.
Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere,
Come le nuvole che volano,
Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima.

Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo chiaro,
Lì anche la notte è meno oscura.
Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere,
Come le nuvole che volano.

Nella fantasia esiste un vento caldo,
Che soffia sulle città, come amico.
Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere,
Come le nuvole che volano,
Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima.

English translation

In my imagination I see a fair world,
Everyone lives in peace and in honesty there.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like the clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.

In my imagination I see a bright world,
Even the night is less dark there.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like clouds that fly.

In my imagination there exists a warm wind,
That breathes on the cities, like a friend.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.
