Muzikademy: 2011 Music Camp

Deadline: August 27, 2011

Are you ready to take the next step to improve your music skills and performance? Then join the second season of Muzikademy: 2011 Music Camp.

"Muzikademy is a gathering of young minds sharing the same passion for music". Its a 2-day workshop exclusively for out-of-school youth and college students that will surely develop their skills from being a usual musician to a highly-trained one. Skills development will be done through a series of tests and workshops from respected authorities in the music industry in our country. Muzikademy is spearheaded by Janice Hung, a Wushu champion, actress, model and at the same time, a music enthusiast and co-presented by Fontana and Janice Hung Arts and Sports Foundation. The event is to be held again in Fontana Hot Springs and Leisure Park, Clark Special Economic Zone, Pampanga. Other sponsors includes Freeway, Solo, Nikki Veneracion, Shimmian Surgi Center, LG JJ International, Dental First and Accel.

It was really an awesome experience for me when I covered the event last year and I personally witnessed how talented young Filipinos are. Each participant really thrown out the best performance they could ever give. You'll see how passionate each performers during the contest night as they sung out their original composition and their cover song. We witnessed how they used what they have learned from their trainings and workshops from various trainors like Monet Silvestre of Pinoy Dream Academy and McCoy Fundales of Kenyo (former lead vocalist of Orange and Lemons). They were fully equipped with knowledge and confidence as if they were a pro. It was really a good clash of talents and passion from young and musically-inclined Pinoys.

Great prizes awaits the winners plus you'll get a chance to meet a lot of new friends which I think is the best prize you could get in the music camp.

Captain America is my Icon of A Modern Hero

Captain America is my Icon of A Modern Hero

Real heroes are noble and sublime. They are those who fight to whatever they believe is right without even taking or asking for anything in return. They always take into consideration the safety of every individual around them. Their lives are always at risk, always in danger. But they do not care for as long as they are doing it for the sake of everyone.

If only possible to have Captain America in real life, I would appeal to him to help us solve the never ending peace and order problem in Mindanao. I would ask him to help Darna and other pinoy super heroes to joined force and battle it out to achieve peace and security without letting blood to flow and cause devastation of innocent lives and properties. Just with their super powers I know they will be able to control any armors, guns and bombs. But unfortunately, Captain America is just a fictional character. The only thing that we can do is to make him an icon to look forward that there are still reason for us to have a safety living. A character that will serve as our inspiration to hope for a better future.

What's Your Patronus (Happy Potter)

And then the finale has come. The movie that we all followed and fell in love with is about to end. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is now showing worldwide. For sure its another blockbuster hit and will be the common topic of all fanatics.

While browsing facebook earlier I found out an online application about Who's your Patronus? A patronus is a kind of positive force, and for the wizard who can conjure one, it works something like a shield. In order for it to work, you need to think of a memory, a very powerful memory.

Upon trying the application, I end up to have fox as my patronus. Its interesting because you can either share it in your facebook wall or download the image file of it.

Want to know what your Patronus is, click here.
