U! Happy Events

Last Saturday, mark of a new beginning! My first time to volunteer for U! Happy Events! I came across this foundation while browsing newsfeeds on my facebook account thru Coffee bean and Tea Leaf.

Kids Got Talent was held last Saturday at 3rd floor, CCF Makati and Big shift studio A-Venue Mall Makati Avenue, Makati City and was made thru in partnership with Coffee bean and Tea Leaf.

The main event was a Dance Showdown from 4 kids organizations namely Bahay Tuluyan from Manila, Little Lights from Cainta, Project Pearls from Ulingan, Manila and Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid from Payatas. 10 participants per group from ages 8-14 was trained prior to the event day by partner, Big Shift Studios, one of the most prominent dance studios in the country. The dance showdown was similar to ABS CBN’s “Showtime” wherein dance will feature much creativity and skill.

Each volunteer was assigned to one kid as your dance partner as part of the activity. You don’t need to be a dancer to participate, all you need to do is be kid again, let down all guards, and remember how to play. You don’t have to worry because a volunteer dance instructor will teach the group with the steps and you will learn together which the exciting part! Pano naman puro kaliwa paa ko! Hahahaha! Kikay may kid partner was having a great laugh at me..kc naman di ko ma gets simpleng steps lang shongers na ako ..hahaha but I was happy that she was smiling and having fun.

This experience is immensely rewarding. Volunteering isn’t about fixing the world’s problems in less than an hour a year or receiving recognition from everyone who reads this blog. It’s about contributing to sustainable projects and making positive adjustments in your own life.

As what Kuya Harvard says that if we give our time, resources and effort in a selfless way, not only will we make a difference, but we will return from the journey – literal or otherwise – changed and activated in some important way. A season of service can present a unique sort of inner and outer personal adventure.

So what are you waiting! sign up now and be involved! You may check thier official website at http://uhappyevents.com/

 “Volunteers are not paid-not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless”

 Life is Good!

The beautiful Fever and Cognac for the Soul

Last month September 21st,  I join the launching and book signing of author Iris Orprecio. The best poems from her three Word Press and two Multiply poetry blog are now compiled in two anthologies, The Beautiful Fever and Cognac for the Soul at  posh bar Moonleaf- Columns 1 corner Ayala and Gil Puyat Avenues, Makati.
 
Orpi, had two passions, writing and mathematics. She took up Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Mathematics and worked as member of the faculty at the University of the Philippines for five years. A few years ago, she resigned from teaching post to pursue a writing career. She currently hold a three-tier job at Game Services Group, Inc. – Creative / technical writer, mathematical analyst and academic consultant. The mixture of glamor and chaos of the Makati Central Business District, where her office is, gives her the inspiration to continue writing despite of her busy schedules.via
