PINULOT KA SA LUPA-KUH LEDESMA

PINULOT KA SA LUPA

by Kuh Ledesma

uploaded by cathcath.com



Pinulot ka lang sa lupa
Huwag lilimutin kung saan ka nagmula
Kung langit man ay narating
Buhay man ay nagningning
Dapat ang puso mo'y parating kay lambing

Pangarap mo't mga biyaya
Natatamo't unti-unting napapala
Ang kapuwa mong naninimnim
Huwag nang hayaan sa dilim
Idulot mo'y pag-asa, huwag maging sakim

[Chorus]
Pinulot ka lang, pinulot ka lang sa lupa
Nguni't kung pagsinta ang siya mong adhika
'Di na mapapansin dungis mo sa mukha
Kung pagkatao mo't damdamin ay pinagpala
'Di dapat ikubling pinulot ka lang sa lupa

Pag-ayon sa iyo ng tadhana
Pag-ibig tuwina ang gawing panata
Ang bawa't yamang kakamtin
Ipamahaging masinsin
Ikaw ay kikinang na tulad ng bituin

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

PILIPINO AKO-KUH LEDESMA

PILIPINO AKO

by Kuh Ledesma

uploaded by cathcath.com



Koro:
Pilipino ako, Pilipino ako
At sa lahat ay sasabihin ko
Ang lahi ko'y kayumanggi
Ito'y aking ipagmamalaki
Pilipino ako, Pilipino ako

Anumang bansa ang marating
Mundo man ay siyang libutin
Anumang tagumpay ang mapasa akin
Kung ako'y maging sikat maging tanyag at kilalanin
Kailanman ay hindi ko lilimutin.

( ulitin koro )

Ang tao raw na di marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan
Ay hindi mararating ang patutunguhan
At ang hindi raw marunong na magmahal sa sariling wika
Ay higit pa sa isang malansang isda.

Bridge:
Bigkas ni Rizal, magiting na bayani
Isa lamang siya sa marami
Pilipino na sa bayan ay nag-alay
Kaya ngayon ako ay narito.

(ulitin koro 2x)

Paano kita mapasasalamatan
Sa puso mong sa ’kin ibinigay
Ngayon lamang ako nagmahal nang tunay
Sa tanang aking buhay
Sapat na ba na ako ay mangako
Mananatili ka dito sa ’king puso
Paano kita mapasasalamatan
Sapat na bang mahalin lang kita
Magpakailanpaman

Ngayon lamang ako nagmahal ng tunay
Sa tanang aking buhay
Sapat na ba na ako ay mangako
Mananatili ka dito sa 'king puso
Paano kita mapasasalamatan
Sapat na bang mahalin lang kita

ONE MORE TRY-KUH LEDESMA

ONE MORE TRY


by Kuh Ledesma

uploaded by cathcath.com



Should we stay or should we say goodbye
Walk away or give it one more try
What a waste to let our dreams just fly
And as the days go by
We'll always wonder why.

Are we glad to find one day we're free
Is this what we really want to be
Brand new lives, we need to have so much
It really is quite tough
When love is not enough.

Tell me why did we find each other
Only to part ways in the end
Tell me how we learned to love each other
And tell me why two people have to change.

Was it pride that made made us drift away
Hurting words we should not even say
Hold my hand and look straight in my eyes
If we can't say goodbye
Then we're worth one more try.

Pag-ikot ng mundo siyang ikot din ng panahon
Ngayon ay tila ba panaginip ng kahapon
Sakaling mawala buhay na pansamantala
Magtatagpo pa rin
Pagibig na mahimala

Nangyari na minsan sa isang panahon
Kamatayan man ay di hahadlang
Ang puso ko't kaluluwa
Kung wala ka'y nagdurusa
Ang pagibig ko sa iyo ay walang hanggan

Sakaling mawala buhay na pansamantala
Magtatagpo pa rin
Pagibig na mahimala

MAKING LOVE- KUH LEDESMA

MAKING LOVE

by Kuh Ledesma

uploaded by cathcath.com



You offered me shelter, your coat in the rain
You took me to a restaurant and bought my champagne
Talked about your life, always without a care
The places, the people, so much money to spare.
You offered me fun, a night in your bed
You smiled when I said no and shook my head

[CHORUS]
'Cause making love is empty when the love is not there
Love has a price and money won't take you there
Making love when you're in love is a magic feeling
It doesn't take much to give your life a priceless meaning

We laughed and talked over the last of the champagne
You told me that love was too much of a strain
And life was simpler when it isn't so deep
Cause love fades easily and is so hard to keep
Once more you offered me fun, a night of pure passion
No love, just fun for two passing attractions

Cause making...cause ...

Is this love
Feeling restless inside
Wanting you to always be my side
I don't even want you out of my sight
You are in my thoughts all day and night
I can't get you out of my mind
I think I'm in love

Refrain:
I think I'm in love
Think I'm in love with you
Every single day
Every single night
Every single moment of my life
I want to spend them all with you
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love with you
Tell me that you care
Tell me...please
Tell me that you also feel
The way that I do...

Can't describe
Words are just not enough
Can't explain
It all happened so fast
What exactly am I feeling right now
If this is love I got to know somehow
Just how long this madness will last
'Cause I think I'm in love

I think I'm in love
Think I'm in love with you
Every single day
Every single night
Every single moment of my life
I want to spend them all with you
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love with you
Tell me that you care
Tell me...please
Tell me that you also feel
The way that I do...

I think I'm in love
Think I'm in love with you
Every single day
Every single night
Every single moment of my life
I want to spend them all with you
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love with you
Tell me that you care
Tell me...please
Tell me that you also feel

HOME-KUH LEDESMA

HOME

by Kuh Ledesma

uploaded by cathcath.com



When I think of home
I think of a place where there's love overflowing
I wish I was home
I wish I was back there with the things I been knowing

Wind that makes the tall trees bend into leaning
Suddenly the snowflakes that fall have a meaning
Sprinklin' the scene, makes it all clean

Maybe there's a chance for me to go back there
Now that I have some direction
It would sure be nice to be back home
Where there's love and affection
And just maybe I can convince time to slow up
Giving me enough time in my life to grow up
Time be my friend, let me start again

Suddenly my world has changed it's face
But I still know where I'm going
I have had my mind spun around in space
And yet I've watched it growing

If you're list'ning God
Please don't make it hard to know
If we should believe in the things that we see
Tell us, should we run away
Should we try and stay
Or would it be better just to let things be?

Living here, in this brand new world
Might be a fantasy
But it taught me to love
So it's real, real to me

And I've learned
That we must look inside our hearts
To find a world full of love
Like yours
Like mine

Like home...

HELLO

uploaded by cathcath.com



Hello
You haven't changed at all
You still have that same look in your eyes
And when you smiled
I felt my heart beating fast
And I knew right there and then
Something that I thought was gone came back
After all these years I realized
That I still deeply care for you

Hello
I've waited long for this
It's been some time since we last said goodbye
But who's to blame
We've got so much to explain
But I can't find the words to say
I can't even look straight in your eyes
Now you're standing there before me
And all we said was just 'Hello'

Now I find myself staring into empty space
Trying to remember all our happy days
It was good to see you but I'm suddenly afraid
To find myself in love with you again

Hello
That's all that I could say
But deep inside there's so much you should know
One thing is sure
I never really stopped loving you.

Date of Birth 1978-12-17

(From Wikipedia)

Emmanuel "Manny" D. Pacquiao (born December 17, 1978), nicknamed the "Pac Man", is the reigning WBC International Super Featherweight Champion (2005–present), former RING People's Featherweight Champion (2003 to 2005), former IBF Super Bantamweight Champion (2001 to 2004), and former WBC Flyweight Champion (1998 to 1999). He has a record of 41 wins, 3 losses, and 2 draws, with 31 wins coming by way of knockout.

The boxer, who hails from General Santos City, Philippines is also dubbed "The Destroyer" by his peers in the boxing world. He has ended many of his fights with his left punch.

The 27 year old Pacquiao started his professional boxing career in 1995 at 106 pounds. He bounced in weight from 106 to 113 pounds before losing in his 12th fight against Rustico Torrecampo via third round technical knockout. Shortly after the Torrecampo fight Pacquiao settled in at 112 pounds, winning the WBC Flyweight title only to lose it in his second defense against Medgoen Singsurat by third round knockout. Theorically speaking, Pacquiao may have lost the belt at the scales by not being able to make weight of 112 lb (51 kg).

Following the loss to Singsurat, Pacquiao again jumped in weight, this time stopping at the Super Bantamweight division of 122 lb (55 kg) where he picked up the WBC International title, defending it five times before his next world title fight came. Pacquiao’s big break came on June 23rd, 2001, against IBF Super Bantamweight champion Lehlohonolo Ledwaba. Pacquiao stepped into the fight as a late replacement and walked out of the fight the newly crowned IBF Super Bantamweight champion. Pacquiao scored three knockdowns before the end of the fight was called in the fifth round.

Manny went on to defend his title four times before the match that many consider to have defined his career, against his childhood boxing idol, Marco Antonio Barrera of Mexico came. Pacquiao rose from an official knockdown in the first round, and won the fight by knockout, when Barrera’s corner had the fight stopped in the eleventh round. With this victory, the "Pacman" captured the WBO and Ring Magazine People's Featherweight Title, as Barrera had beaten Naseem Hamed previously for that belt (Ring Magazine;s title has no world championship title, being a mythical one instead). Pacquiao's performance established himself, according to many critics, fans and boxing magazines alike, as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world, and put the Philippines on the boxing world's map again where he follows in the footsteps of past Filipino boxing stars such as "Flash Elorde", Ben Villaflor, and Pancho Villa, among others.

Only six months removed from his win over Marco Antonio Barrera. Pacquiao went on to challenge another respected Mexican boxer, Juan Manuel Marquez, holder of the WBA and IBF Featherweight Title. Experts predicted that Marquez, a dangerous counter-puncher, would prevail over Pacquiao because of his apparently superior boxing skills. The fight turned out to be one of the greatest Featherweight clashes in the history of boxing. Pacquiao's handspeed and punching power was displayed early as he stormed Marquez with jabs and straight lefts that sent the Mexican Champion to the canvas three times in the first round alone. It looked as if Pacquiao was on his way to a quick victory, but things changed as Marquez started to take control in the second, arguably dominating the fight and getting better with each passing round. When the bell to end the 12th round sounded, the fight was scored a draw (tie).

Against Fahsan (3K-Battery) Por Thawatchai, Pacquiao sent Por Thawatchai to the canvas three times en route to a knock out in the fourth-round. A left uppercut to the jaw knocked down the Thai fighter with both feet off the canvas and ended the fight.

Pacquiao once again jumped in weight, this time to the Super Featherwight division and squared off against former three-time division champion Erik Morales on 19th of March, 2005. However, Pacquiao lost the 12 round match with a unanimous decision from the judges. Pacquiao had to fight with a cut in his eye for most of the fight against Morales. Despite the loss, Pacquiao gained further credibility as a fighter who could fight back under adversity.

On September 10, 2005, Manny Pacquiao knocked out Hector Velazquez, capturing the WBC International Super Featherweight Title in the process.

Pacquiao defeated Erik Morales by TKO in a rematch on January 21, 2006 in Las Vegas at Thomas and Mack Center, United States. Pacquiao nearly dropped Morales in round two and wobbled him again in the sixth. Pacquiao floored Morales twice in round 10 before the fight was stopped. It is the first time the 29-year-old Morales, a former world champion in three weight classes, has been stopped and he has now lost three of his last four fights.

Pacquiao has now been installed as the WBC's Super-featherweight number one contender. Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera holds the WBC belt.

Nais ko kayong pasalamatan

Parang kailan lang
halos ako ay magpalimos sa lansangan.
Dahil sa inyo

Kaya't itong awiting aking inaawit
nais ko’y kayo ang handugan.

Tatanda at lilipas din ako,
Ngunit mayroong awiting iiwanan sa inyong alaala
Dahil minsan tayo’y nagkasama.

Parang kailan lang
ang mga awitin ko ay ayaw pakinggan.
Dahil sa inyo narinig ang isip ko at naintidihan.
Dahil dito’y ibig ko kayong ituring na matalik kong kaibigan.

You make me feel secure
Somehow you make me sure
That with faith in you i can endure

Father dear father keep showin' me the way

In every way i do try
To be the best that i can be
Cuz all that i am I owe to you
So show me your love
With you I feel as one
Cuz in your arms is where i belong

And even through the darkest times
And when i feel so defeated
You'll always be here to test me
But i know I'll be so much stronger
Once I get through the darkness
And step into the light

ATI-ATIHAN-KALIBO, AKLAN



uploaded by cathcath.com

SINULOG FESTIVAL is to Cebu City while the Ati-Atihan is a festival in honor of the Holy Infant Jesus in Kalibo, Aklan also celebrated in the third week of January. The dancing however is done on the rhythms of the drums that makes this festival comparable with carnival in Rio in Brazil.

A parade is participated by celebrants who paint their faces in many different ways and who are dressed in the most exceptional costumes.

The practise of painting the faces was long observed before the
Spaniards came. It symbolized the friendship between the light-skinned immigrants from the island of Borneo (Kalimantan) in Indonesia and the Atis, the local people of Panay. The Ati (negritos), a small and dark (black) kinky-haired people, sold them a small piece of land and allowed them to settle down in the lowlands. The Atis themselves, lived more upland in the mountains.

One time the Ati people was in need of food because of a bad harvest in their homelands. They came down to the lowlands of the Maraynon and asked them food. Every year since then, the Atis came down to the lowland inhabitants to ask for some food. They danced and sang in gratitude for the help.

SINULOG FESTIVAL

The Sinulog is a dance ritual in honor of Santo Nino. It is held every year in Cebu City on the third Sunday of January.

This Sinulog dance which is the traditional and ritual dance in honor of Santo Nino is distinguished from the Ati-atihan from Panay Island.


Accompanied by the sound of the drums the sequences include the
all the time moving two steps forward followed by one step backward. Though the dance is already very old, the parade that characterized the festival was started onl in 1980.

Contrary to the belief of some, Sinulog was already danced by the locals in honor of their wooden statues in the period before the Cebuanos were baptized. Later on, after the image of the famous Santo NiƱo was brought to Cebu and the Catholic faith was established in the region, the dance was made a part of the early fiesta in honor of the Santo Nino.

While dancing, people are shouting petitions and thanksgivings to the Santo Nino. Shouting is necessary because the pilgrims have to be sure that they will be heard by the Santo Nino.
"Pit Senor! Senor Santo Nino."

A long and lasting love
Not many people find it
But those who do
Their whole life through
Put their heart and soul behind it
A long and lasting love

A long and lasting love
Is what I always dreamed of
And when I look into your eyes
I knew I'd really seen love
A long and lasting love

Now that you're in my life
I'm gonna make you stay
I have to be some kind of crazy fool
To let you get away
Now that you're in my life
I'm gonna make you stay
I have to be some kind of crazy fool
To let you get away

A long and lasting love
We share for many reasons
A special bond that goes beyond
The changing of the seasons
A long and lasting love

A long and lasting love
Someone I can care for
Someone to be there
For the rest of my life
A long and lasting love

Now that you're in my life
I'm gonna make you stay
I have to be some kind of crazy fool
To let you get away
Now that you're in my life
I'm gonna make you stay
I have to be some kind of crazy fool
To let you get away

A long and lasting love
Is what I always dreamed of
And when I look into your eyes
I knew I'd really seen love
A long and lasting love
A long and lasting love
A long and lasting love

DAMDAMIN-RICO PUNO

DAMDAMIN



by RICO PUNO


uploaded by cathcath.com

Kahit ako'y 'di mo ngayon pinapansin
Nakatanaw man sa iba ang paningin
Kailan ma'y huwag akalain na aking daramdamin
Ang pag-ibig ko ay nililihim ko rin

Kahit tuwina'y aking napapangarap ka
At alam kong gayon ka rin sa 'kin sinta
Kailan ma'y 'di sasabihin na minamahal din kita
'Pagkat lihim din ang damdamin ko

At kung tayo'y 'di na muli pang magkita
Kapwa tayo malulungkot na dalawa
At duo'y sisihin damdaming sinungaling
Na 'di nagsabing mahal din kita

At duo'y sisihin damdaming sinungaling
Na 'di nagsabing mahal din kita

LUPA-Rico Puno

LUPA

by RICO PUNO



uploaded by cathcath.com
Nagmula sa lupa
Magbabalik na kusa
Ang buhay mong sa lupa nagmula

Bago mo linisin
Ang dungis ng 'yong kapwa
Hugasan ang 'yong putik sa mukha

Kung ano ang 'di mo gusto
Huwag gawin sa iba
Kung ano ang 'yong inutang
Ay s'ya ring kabayaran

Sa mundo ang buhay
Ay mayroong hangganan
Dahil ay lupa lamang

Kaya't pilitin mong ika'y magbago
Habang may panahon ika'y magbago
Pagmamahal sa kapwa ay isipin mo

Kung ano ang 'di mo gusto
Huwag gawin sa iba
Kung ano ang 'yong inutang
Ay s'ya ring kabayaran

Sa mundo ang buhay
Ay mayroong hangganan
Dahil ay lupa lamang

Sa mundo ang buhay
Ay mayroong hangganan
Dahil ay lupa lamang

Kaya't pilitin mong ika'y magbago
Habang may panahon ika'y magbago
Pagmamahal sa kapwa ay isipin mo

Kaya't pilitin mong ika'y magbago
Habang may panahon ika'y magbago
Pagmamahal sa kapwa ay isipin mo

MACHO GUWAPITO

by RICO PUNO

uploaded by cathcath.com

Sinong magsasabing ako'y masaya
Na walang problemang nadarama
Sa bawat hakbang ng aking daan
Laging mayro'ng nobya, laging may problema


Kung sa pakapalan lamang naman
'Di sinsadyang ako ay ganyan
Kay dalas masubo sa alangan
Masaya nga ngunit laging nasasabit


CHORUS
Macho gwapito raw ako (macho gwapito)
Ngunit isip ko nama'y gulung-gulo
Macho gwapito raw ako (macho gwapito)
Kinagigiliwan dahil may pangalan


AD LIB
(Ooh, macho gwapito)
(Ahh, macho gwapito)
(Ooh, macho gwapito)
(Ooh, macho gwapito, gwapito, gwapito, gwapito ako)


[Repeat 1st Stanza]
[Repeat CHORUS]
[Repeat AD LIB except last word]
[Repeat CHORUS twice fading]

The Loves of Jose Rizal-Nellie Boustead

Nellie Boustead




After receiving the news of the marriage of Leonor Rivera to an Englishman,Jose Rizal decided to court other ladies.

He met two sisters while fencing at the studio of Juan Luna. One of the sisters was deeply infatuated with Jose Rizal that he was invited to their residence in the resort city of Biarritz.

Rizal must have developed feelings towards Nellie that he challenged Antonio for a duel when the latter uttered unsavory remarks against the woman. Luna apologized when he sobered up.

But marriage did not take place. The parents of Nellie would like him to convert to Protestantinism. The mother thought that he's not good enough for the family even though he was a doctor because he had no clientele.

Philippine Heroes and Heroines-Melchora Aquino


Known as Tandang Sora, Melchora Aquino,
the Mother of the Revolution was born in Banilad,
Kalookan City, on January 6, 1812 .

Using her small sari-sari store as refuge, she fed,
treated and encouraged Bonifacio with her motherly
advice and prayers the Katipuneros under the leadership
of Andres Bonifacio .

She was already old when the revolution broke out in
1896. She had very little education but she was literate.

She was aptly called the "Mother of Katipunan." When the Spaniards
learned about her activities, they arrested her and exiled her
to the Marianas islands.

When the Americans took possession of the Philippines in 1898,
Tandang Sora, like other exiles returned to the Philippines,
poor and aging. For a time, she lived with her daughter Saturnina.

On March 2, 1919, she died at the age of 107.

JOSE RIZAL'S LOVES- LEONOR RIVERA

Leonor believing that Rizal had already forgotten her, sadly consented her to marry the Englishman Henry Kipping, her mother’s choice.

WAKAS-KUH LEDESMA

KUH LEDESMA

by Kuh Ledesma

uploaded by cathcath.com


Ilog at dagat naiiga rin
Namamatay ang kislap ng bituin
Kahit ang araw magdidilim din
Dahil may wakas ang lahat man din

Ang lahat ng bagay ay may wakas
Tulad din ng pag-ibig mo
Ngunit mabubuhay kung singwagas
Ng pag-ibig ko sa'yo

Huni ng ibon bahit kay tamis
Nawawalang himig tunog ay hapis
Ang kaligayahan kapag umalis
Wakas na iiwa'y paghihinagpis

Kahit alaala ay may wakas
Tulad din ng paglimot mo
Buhay na alaala ang s'yang lakas
Ng pag-ibig ko sa'yo

Sugat ng puso, patak ng ulan
May wakas din kung kaya ay kailan?
Wagas kong pag-ibig kung magwawakas man
Kapag nagwakas na ang kailan man
Kapag nagwakas na ang kailan man
